    im pissed at my headphones. i was listening to music and i moved and stepped on the headphone cord to where it pulled headphone plug out of front of speaker. now if i push it all the way it to plug them in only the left side works. but if i pull it out a little bit both sides work they work fine i dont know how i would fix it to where if i plug them in all the way they would work normally

    Borrow another set of phones, if they have the same problem then the socket is damaged, and you probably won't want to try to replace it.

    On the other hand it is a fairly simple task with a soldering iron to replace the plug if that's where the fault is.

    One way round it might be to fit one or two thin insulated washers over the shaft of the plug. I usually have a few of spare ones when I fit a motherboard, and since they are supposed to fit 3.5mm screws they are exactly the right diameter. A small dab of adhesive should keep them in place.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    But what's causing your headache? Headphones squeezing too tight?
