You don't need a model number to fix the wire. Any stereo headphone wire will work to replace the old one. Just be sure to check to see which wire is hooked where on your speaker. You need to put the ground wire in the same place the ground wire is on your speaker, the same applying to the hot wire. If you get the two wires backward you reverse the polarity going to the speaker and it will not sound right.

Make and Model information of the head set would help.
As for an idea it would be power line hum being picked up by the audio cord. I am assuming this because you turn it on and I then assumed it has ab internal amplifier. Short all three pins together and the buzzing should go away unless there is a broken ground wire.
Cord is probably broken internally. If you are not good with wires and soldering and it is out of warranty, find someone who is or buy new headphones. You can manipulate the wire until it works and tape it in that position for a temp fix, otherwise the cord is shot.
Do you have any idea how could I change the whole cord in fact the rubber black and white became sticky and it is broken :/ after 4 years of using. If you have any advice please let me know. Kbrudz@gmail.com
If the cord is broken at the plug, most standard sub-mini,mini phone plugs can be replaced by someone with a little skill at soldering ( a ohm meter also helps). Get a replacement stereo plug like the old one (often at Radio shack or any electronic parts store). Cut off the old plug and carefully strip off the outside insulation back about 1/4". Note there is 3 conductors. The webbing around the 2 wires goes to the outside back end of the plug. This is the ground or common wire for both sides. This wire may have a non conducting coating on it which needs to be stripped off before you solder it to the plug. There is 2 other wires in the cord. one (often red) is the right channel and the other is the left. You can check which channel is the right side with a meter or a AA battery. DON'T try to check with the earphones on your head!! The right 'hot' side will go to the tip of the plug and the left side goes to the ring next to the tip. Don't forget to strip off the insulation of the wires by gently scraping them with a sharp knife or razer blade. Also don't do like I sometimes do and forget to put the collar or back piece on the wire before you solder the wires on the plug.
Hope this helps.
there are two reasons for which your left ear head phone is not working:
1.If the insulation between the wires(copper leads inside the cord) fails....the two leads gets short circuited and it will stop working...OR some times the cord ll be looking good but inside one of the leads got cut then one of the headphones fails...
the solution for the above problem is dont wrap the cord...this ll lead to cut or insulation failure....
2.the speaker in the left head phone got failed...
dont forget to rate me...
Your broken wire could be any place from the plug end to the place where the cord enters the headphones or at either speaker. The easiest way to test is with a volt ohm meter if you have one.Another way that is harder and will probably take some help from someone else is by using a battery. a double A or a flashlight battery will work . You will need a wire from each end of the battery(strip the insulation off both ends of each wire first and then connect one end of each to the battery) You will either have to hold them or tape them in place. Using the other bare ends of the wires you can touch the wires in your headphones and you will get a click sound. Start at the speakers and work your way to the plug. When you stop getting the click you will know where the break is.You will need to replace some parts and here is a link to how to do it:http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1045725/how_to_solder_how_to_repair_headphones/ I always mention this link because there is a better video and info there than I can provide. Please let me know if this helps.
Have you tried them in another audio source. Head phone wires like to break at the strain relief of the main plug. Try moving the cord on the plug side of the phones. If it cuts in and out its time for a new set. Head phone wires are difficult to repair and it may be more trouble then its worth.
Yes they can be fixed. Hopefully the break is inside and not somewhere in the cord. Remove the foam pad being careful not to tear it. Look for small "phillips head" screws which holds the two halves together. Sometimes the halves snap together. Gentally pry apart. Simply resolder the wires, and put halves back together. You may have to "re-strip" the wires. If you do they are very small gauge wires and delicate. Use a small tip soldering iron.
