Thread: Broken In-ear headphones
01-22-2010, 08:33 PM #1Broken In-ear headphones
As the title describes i bought the apple in ear-headphones ($100!) and they lasted quite a long time considering what they've been through (about half a year), but recently the right earphone stopped working. At first i thought it was my ipod itself, then i realized that the problem was coming from the earphone cable itself. I found out if i twisted the cable about an inch from the jack, the sound would come back the earphones. Now both are broken and its definitely a problem with the wires coming out the jack. Surprisingly though, the mic and music control still work. Any ideas on how to fix it? i was thinking about pealing away the white rubber covering the cables, but i wasn't sure if it was a good idea since earphone cables are composed of a white string (i think) surrounded by colored material (copper maybe?). sorry im a noob at hardware :P. any help is much appreciated. thank you

I have had the same problem with some earphones and so do a lot of other people. The wire is broken in the headphone jack.

Wake up people! Apple products have a one year warranty! Call up Apple or go into see a genius and have them replaced. As long as they are not damaged due to neglect you will be fine.
