Strain Relief??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought some OEM 3.5mm Sennheiser jacks to redo some of my headphones. They are really nice, but they have no strain relief. I tried tying the cable in a knot, but it did not work. Any idea on what I can use for relief?

The cable on the headphones is flat, I should have mentioned that. Should I hot glue the wires over the solder points to help also?

make sure the wires have some slack and glue where the clamp and cables meet

Thanks. These OEM jacks have no clamp. Probrably used some plastic insert or something. I just put  a little hot glue on the solder area and filled up the free space with hot glue.
