Fixing broken audio jack

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Tried to fix my beloved Klipsch X10's audio jack, ended up completely messing it up. Long story short, it's completely detached now. And I have no idea how to fix this. Or is it even fixable.

 

Any ideas on how I go about salvaging them? I really do love these iems and don't really have the money to spend on another pair. Please help.

Just solder another jack on.

You can use wire glue if you are not handy

This. 

Cut the cable an inch or 2 above the plug, strip the wires, remove any insulation, and solder the new one on. 

If you are not comfy with it send them off to someone who is. 

 

KOSS - "the plug" might make a good holdover.

EEH, I think the DCR of wire glue may be too high and/or unpredictable for headphones. 

 

Something like this:

Window weld is also somewhat conductive, as an alternate.

If you don't have a soldering iron it may be more cost effective to send them to someone.

Thank you for your responses.

 

Anyone in Vancouver who can fix the audio jack? Can't afford to spend a lot of money, but I'll do what I can
