Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Yep. Same exact thing happened to my HD280's. Damn beagles!
Simply buy replacement cord from Sennheiser. It has a nice .100" pitch header so no soldering is necessary to replace the cord.
The trick is to get the phones apart. I almost destroyed mine before I realized you can take the ear padding off by stretching it from around the plastic earcup. Be careful not to tear the thin fabric on the inside of the pad. I believe you can buy replacements of the pads if you are not so lucky.
There are two screws that hold the phone parts all together. Take these out and you are there. Be sure you watch how all the parts come out because it is a bit of a puzzle to get it all back together. The tiny wire are also very fragile inside the phones so be very gentle.
Putting the pads back on was probably the hardest part. :/

You can repair the cord by cutting out the chewed section and reattach the wires to the corresponding wire on the other end and if you solder the connections then it will last longer. Make sure you isolate and exposed wire with electrical tape.
