By constantly bending the cable back and forth at the same place, you've created fatigue in the cable and caused one or more of the small individual wires inside it to break. The only way to get the headphones to work again is to access the wires just above and below the point of the break. You'll need to have enough of the wire to strip the insulation, solder them together and then insulate with tape or heat shrink tubing. Unfortunately, the resulting repair will not look very pretty, but will work and should work for a long time with proper care. if you can make this repair inside the headphone then the ugly looking splice / solder can be kept out of view and not be subjected to pull strains.
Since you didn't include the brand and model - I don't know which type headphones you have. You may have better luck simply replacing the entire cord, or shortening the existing cord to the point of the break and installing a new plug at that point. If it is too short, you can buy an extension cord for the headphones. This will be the best looking solution, and will work nicely - as long as you don't pull too ******* it - causing the plug to pull out of the jack.
Its pretty clear from your explanation that the internal wire inside the external cable must have cut. So if you can do it yourself, try to locate the exact point wher it cut, get a blade or something to cut it open. Locate the point, take off the bad side. Then apply the blade on the internal wires, smooth to make sure you can clearly see the copper, then join back (colour- colour). Get a cellotape to wrap each of them to make sure they dont bridge. Then finally cover everything together to have one single straight wire and there you go. But if you cannot do this, then you need to give it to a repairer. Goodluck.
You have to trace the wiring inside of your headphone because probably there is an open wire or short wire inside of your headset.You need a multitester to determine where is exactly the troubled wire. Have a nice day!
If the broken link is along the cable (not in the earphone) just cut the cable very close to the earphones and replace it with a new one (a stereo cable should contain at least 3 different wires inside). If the cable is broken inside the earphone itself, it is possible to solder it but because we are talking about a earphone it could be hard to open them and to closed them back in.
The wire connection inside the cable is broken. You can disassemble it, cut the wire past the broken point (usually where it makes a sharp bend) and re-solder it. If the wire is too short, you need to get an new wire or get the wire from a donor headphone and replace it.
Check for a loose connection in the wire. Wiggle (carefully) the wire around both the headset where it sits on your heat. Also, check the other end (plug) to see if there are any shorts. If this simple "wiggle" test shows nothing, there may be a problem with the driver (speaker) in the right channel in your headphone.
Another thing to check and this should be obvious: make sure your balance on your stereo/receiver is set to be in the middle and not to the left.
Based on your post/description, it would seem that the cable of your head phone developed an open circuit somewhere. I would assume it is pretty near the headset itself. On most occasion, it is at the very entry point where the cable goes into the headset.
Normal repair would involve opening the side casing where the cable enters the headset, cutting the cable about 3 inches from entry point, strip exposing the three or 4 wires and reconnecting inside the stripped ends. Effectively what you have done is trim the cable a bit shorter eliminating hopefully the intermittent section.
Hope this be of help/idea, Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
