I have a very top end set of sennheiser headphones for my ipod and the right earphone has been damaged inside the jack plug where it attaches to the ipod. if i wiggle the wire then it works for a while.

can this jack plug be replaced ?

can anyone do it for me pls ?

i dont want to have the expense of replacing them as they are not cheap headphones

There are loads of online repairs on instructables.com for doing this yourself, and also on youtube.

Don't know if it helps at all, but my dad has fixed many headphones over the years when one ear has gone crackly due to broken wires, so I am sure it can be done.

What Sennheiser headphones? I'm only asking as my set of HD 215 have a detachable lead, but the PMX 90 are hard wired.

If there is a detachable lead and it's the plug that's damaged, you can either cut off and solder on a new 2.5mm jack or replace with a new lead.

If they are hard wired or it's the socket that's damaged you'll have to open the casing to have a poke.

(For what it's worth the audio quality of the iPods don't really warrant spending more that about 20 on headphones.)

How long have you had them? As there is a 2 year warranty on these: http://www.sennheiser.co.uk/uk/home_en.nsf/root/private_headphones_classic-line_cxseries_502743

Under Sale of Goods Act your contract is with the store. However, you may be better dealing with Sennheiser directly.

I've had three pairs and they all seem to break - I've never had headphones break so many times before. It's the wiring inside, it has an enamel covering and is really thin and prone to snappage. Cheap Chinese crap, in other words.
