My friend's cat cut his D22's headphone cable (the 2 leads going to the left cup) and I was wondering if I should just solder the two back together...would that be a bad idea? thanks

I've heard that the heat can damage the diaphram, so it may be better to get a replacement part from the manufacturer. I would have quickly replaced my sennheiser cable if not for such an annoying roadblock.

You might was well give it a try. Either that or send the headphones in for repair.

Be warned, soldering headphone wire can be tricky because they use an odd type of cotton/wire for flexibility that doesn't solder very well. It can be done but don't expect it to be as easy as soldering a DIY amp.

My dog chewed some headphone cables and even though I was able to splice them back together, I was never totally happy with them afterwards and had to buy new ones. Nothing wrong with the sound mind you, I just couldn't get over that they weren't 100% anymore.
