Re: snapped plastic part above the size adjuster, only 1...
Skull Candy has a lifelong warranty on all their products, regardless if you still have the receipt or not. This happened to me, I shipped them the pieces and although it took a month or so, I got some new ones back in the mail.

Some Kindles have an earphone jack and some don't You can use earphones only if your Kindle has the earphone jack. It is the mini-jack like used in iPods and iPhones and many headphones (as opposed to ear buds) use a larger size jack.
Adapters are available. Try Radio Shack for adapters and lead cables. Keep in mind that most earphones require more power to operate than earbuds do and the Kindle may not be able to sufficiently power headphones to get any decent volume.
IF YOU HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WHAT I HAD WITH MY 3 YEAR OLD SURE E3g EARPHONE THAT ONE SIDE IS NOT LAUD ENOUGH......<br />
I DID TRY ALL THE CLEANING WITH THE PROVIDED TOOL BUT ALL DID NOT HELP.<br />
I DID USE A KNIFE AND DID SLOWELY FOLLOW THE GROVE ARROUND THE TIP OF MY BAD EARPHONE. AFTER A FEW MIN. WORKING WITH MY KNIFE IN THIS GROVE I DID FEEL THAT THE EARPHONE WILL COME APART. THE TIP HAS NO CONNECTIONS (ELECTRICAL SPEAKER WIRE CONNECTIONS) NOTHING IT IS JUST THE EARPHONE PLASTIC TIP. AFTER I HAD THE TIP IN MY HAND I USED A NEEDLE AND I GOT A LOT OLD EAR WAX OUT AND MY EARPHONE IS VERY LOAD AGAIN. NOW CLEAN BOTH SIDES AND PRESS THE TIP BACK ON. IF YOU FEEL BETTER USE A DROP SUPER GLUE TO BE SURE IT WILL NOT COME APART AGAIN AND STUCK IN YOUR EAR. I DID NOT USE ANY GLUE.<br />
I HOPE THIS DID HELP YOU TO CONTINUE TO LISTEN YOUR MUSIC WITH YOUR SURE E3g EARPHONE
You could try a strong superglue. Sometimes you can melt it together with a small soldering iron. If you do, use eye protection and do it in a well vented room. You might need a small piece of plastic to melt, to reinforce it. Something like the plastic of the headphones. Such as "Airfix" bits or a pen top!
The only other solution is to find a cheap pair of headphones that uses the same size speakers as yours and take the old ones out and fit in your speakers. For more info on this see my tip on headphones by clicking my username.
yes sure you can take apart the headphones and solder in a new wire or fix the old one possibly, note that it will not be as good as it was from the factory, you might end up having to replace the headphones if it keeps breaking over and over again.
You can try to re-solder it but make sure you use a heat-sink and flux. The problem with small earphones is that it's a wire within a wire - for visual purposes picture it like the coax cable that goes in the back of your TV. If the inner wire is missing you can't just strip the wire to get it out because you need to keep the two from touching. If you don't mind spending a small amount of money take it to your local electronics repair store and they'll reconnect it for a small fee.
The person above has no idea what he is talking about. I've tried it all: Super glue, gorilla glue, all kinds of bonds but nothing works. The problem is that eveytime you use it the plastic is strained and it flexes to match the size of your head and it will give way where it is weak (i.e. the part where it snapped) My dad just melted the plastic with stove fire and smeared the liquified plastic with a heated screwdriver. It's been fine so far. But please do be careful. You might want to ask a person who is good with their hands to do this kind of job. Good luck.
I'm not sure if what part came off but if the wires were broke then. I would like to to give you something. It's the gift of time. The time that you are going to spend on attempting to repair your earphones. I'm not sure how much experiences you have with taking things apart and putting back together but, I've been doing it all my life. I have a hot air pencil and a awesome soldering station. I also have two pair of Shure brand earphone. At about $200.00 a pair I was highly motivated to fix them. Although I was somewhat successful, they never did sound quite right again. Needless to say I spent way to much time trying. There is just too many things you have to get right inside them. Now if it's just the plastic section then it's an easy fix.
