dr. dre tour in-ear headphones have a short in the jack, help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Okay... so i recently bought a new iphone case, the hole in the case that allows you to plug your earphones/headphones in was a little too small and i really had to squeeze the plug in jack in, to allow me to listen to music with the case on the phone. I was planning on drilling the hole in the case bigger today.Long story short i had my beats earphones(old version) plugged in and when i removed them with great force trying to get them out of the hole i apparently pulled the wire out of the jack causing a short in the wire.I can push the wire into the jack and hear music very clearly  but when i release it doesn't play anymore?? i tried taping it with electrical tape to put force on the jack put it didn't work . Anyway I also own a pair of beats studios which came with two audio cords, is it possible two cut the jack off of one of the studio's cords and replace it with the jack on the earphones? the wire on the tour earphones is flat and the wire on the audio cord is round and standard looking, anyway is this possible? will it work? i would really appreciate any helpful answers on how to fix it, i really dont want 100$ go to waste  . Please don't tell me these headphones suck and i should never have gotten them and i need to buy different  ones, that isn't an option for me.

Okay, all joking aside, yes, it would be possible to reterminate the cable from where it broke, and put in a new plug. If you have decent soldering skills, you could try doing this yourself. I wouldn't mutilate a new cable, rather, just buy a 3.5mm plug or something, they're very cheap.
