So, the spring on my M50's 3.5mm jack was pulled out of its socket.

For those that don't know what I'm talking about, this is what the spring looks like: , now it's just on the wire.

 

 

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.

Is the buzzing definitely because the spring is not touching the jack? If you hold onto the metal part of the jack, does the buzzing also stop?
