Question about Skull Candy Lowrider Headphones
If you are good with a soldering iron yes is the answer.
Make certain it is the jack plug first, by moving the cable around at various points.
Here's what to do, buy a stereo headphone jack plug, gold type are best. Cut the old plug off. On the new plug you will see two small terminals and a long metal one with two flanges on the end. Strip the cable just enough, so that the thickest part just sits where the two flanges are. The striped cable will have two coloured wires (the R & L channels) and some earth wires. The plastic barrel of the plug should be put on the cable before you attach the wires. The left and right wires go on the two smaller terminals, you will have to work out which one is which, by testing the sound. It won't hurt the speakers or your amp if you get them wrong way round, just reverse them. The earths all go on the long shaft. When you have soldered them on, bend the two flanges together so it grips the cable.
PS don't short terminals with either of the channels or the earths.
If you think they might short (touch) insulate them, say with tape. Then put the barrel cover over the end. If the sound is spaced out the earths are not connected good.
If it is not the plug but the wire further up, cut it at that point and fit the plug there. You can get an extension lead for headphones to solve the short cable problem.
