Amateur soldering jobs can have an impact on the sound quality, and a professional recable would cost more than those headphones are worth. You might want to consider a replacement or an upgrade, as it might not be worth your time (valuing your time at around $10 per hour of researching/fiddling with wires) to fix them.
Cats are headphones' natural predator, you know. Might want to keep your good ones in a case if you also have a cat.
By the time you get a Solder Iron, if you haven't one , Solder and Wire, you could just replace your headphones. The same set will run like $30 on ebay. Mow some lawns or talk your parents into spotting you some cash for some work in return?
You could maybe get $10-$20 for the broken headphones on ebay, put that towards some new ones. The materials alone (solder, solder iron) will cost you quite a bit, and then you've got your time, and the high % chance of failure for a novice using a soldering gun on fine wires (I know I wouldn't do it)
If you can't find a cable or raise funds AND are in the US, message me. I've got a brand new Cable off a HD201 you can have.
I bought a set and first thing I did was cut it off for a recable. It's about 12 Ft long so you can cut it down to the size you need. Plus it has the plug already on so you don't have to worry about soldering that.
See I don't need it
For the headphones you're using you should be worrying more about how easy it will be to solder, rather than the quality of the wire. This is because the headphones' internal wiring is the same cheap-medium quality that the original cable was made of, so a high tier cable won't help.
