How to fix ATH-M50 broken audio jack?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I am a new member to this forum site, but I have been having problems with my amazing ath-m50s lately.  So, my 3.5 mm jack piece snapped off.  How do I fix this?  I have heard about soldering on a new connector, but can anyone point me to a tutorial/parts link that will explain that further? 

 

Also, it was said that someone could just buy an entirely new cable.  How do I do that? I know I would need to find an ATUS authorized dealer, but would they just give me the part? How do I replace the two cables if I did this approach instead of the soldering?

 

Also, here is what my jack looks like right now

Cut the original jack off, buy a replacement one (from radio shack), buy a soldering iron, some 60/40 solder, learn how to solder.

 

Watch a how to video, and your good.
