Hello all!
My UE Super.Fi 5 have a pretty much dead connection to one of the buds, traced to the cable literally at or just before the jack. They've long been replaced by a pair of Triple.Fi 10, but for sentimental reasons and because I love fiddling I'm looking to fix them anyway.
 
Now, they're not the Pro or the other model with the replaceable cable, so it's all hard-soldered. Has anyone replaced one of these jacks before by any chance? I'm not a complete whizz with a soldering iron but I can handle it, I'm just afraid the wire might be far too thin to handle effectively. I'm guessing the best fix would be a soldered jack of a similarly small size?
 
Thank you all!

Thank you, Fred! I've ordered a few of those (10...), I'll see how I get on. Worst case scenario I lose a bit of wire length and have to ask someone else to do it, can't be too bad!
