This doesn't sound like a problem right? IT SHOULDN'T BE! IT SHOULDN'T MATTER!!
But guess what, when the spring is not touching the metal (for reference): , the headphones make a buzzing noise. I tried to tape it to each other to make it touch but it doesn't have enough force. I tried forcing the spring back in, but the first 5 coils or so are huge so it doesn't fit in. I'd have to cut off the damn wire to put it back in. I can't think of a way to put it back, and I've tried.
I'm so frustrated that such a seemingly trivial issue causes a hugely obnoxious effect. I can't stand the buzzing noise, oh god it makes me cringe.
