There are 3 wires.A ground,usually a braid on the outside under the plastic covering and 2 other wires, one for left and one for right.the size of plug is a 1/8 phone jack.the wires are very thin and you have to make sure to trim just enough plastic to solder it on.too much peeled plastic will create a short,and you have to be good at soldering to do it.

The jack broke off of my skull candy skull crushers, and i was wondering how i can fix this problem?

There isn't really a way to fix it if that happened. Lucky you, though, you have Skull Candies! Skull Candy has a lifetime replacement program that will replace your headphones for free if you say you broke them from an accident or just from eventual wear and tear. If they were broken from obvious aggressive use, Skull Candy will still give you 50% off a replacement pair.

Requesting replacements is easy. You just answer a few questions about them, such as around when did you buy them and a short explanation of what happened, then they will send you a special box. You mail them the box back with your headphones in them, and they will send you the replacement pair!

****. My right earphone has stopped working. If I knew so many people had this problem, i'd never have bought skull candy. Dudes, you guys are loosing demand. This is **** P.S. Mine are pink and white

as i can see you already know skull c head phones are doing this all over the world the reason is poor cable and soldering from the manufacture the only way to fix it is to hope the break is at the phone plug you can have another replaced for around $ 25 at an electronics repair shop

The top extendable cushioned area snapped

This may be not the answer your looking for but I would recommend not buying Skull Candy headphones. The quality of the headphones are really bad and they have a very short life span. I am an audiophile with a tight budget and my headphones have lasted for a long time in many conditions. I have Sennheiser HD212Pro Headphones and there amazing. Trust me, I used to have Skull Candy headphones and there nothing compared to the Sennheiser HD212Pro's.

Sh=kull Candy Headphones not working...

there is a possibility that the plug is not going all the way in, in the Ipod. Have you tried using other headphones on Ipod? Sometimes the plug can become unscrewed and and doesnt fit properly. It will work on some receptacles and not in others, due to differences in tolerances.

Skull Candy Headphone problem

The wires can easily break inside the insulation without showing it outside. The good news I'm about 99% sure it isn't in the headset or at least one would work.

So, can you see any markings where it got caught in the door? If so I would cut the cable a couple of inches towards the headset from there and install a new plug . The plug is wired as follows: bare coppers both go to the contact that leads to the large sleeve on the plug. The other two wires each go to one ot the other two contacts. A little solder and you're on your way again.
