Relying: Psychomed ***** Not just a piece of wire, a personal statement. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 April 2018 Colour: Black Verified Purchase Not just a piece of wire, a personal statement. As dedicated followers of my Amazon reviews will be aware, I am a) tight and b) can't throw anything away, particularly if it has wires. So, naturally, when my 7 year old's headphones packed up, I saw this as an opportunity to broaden his education and challenge his perception of the world as a place of transient consumerism. "Anything can be fixed" is my motto. "Let's just chuck them and buy a new pair, they only cost 拢15, 2 years ago", said my wife. Well, personally I'm not going to chuck 拢15 in the bin. I wouldn't chuck 15 p in the bin. And why add to the mountain of plastic clogging up the oceans and throttling pandas? We have to think about our children, and our children's children. And our children's children's children. But not our children's children's children's children. For goodness' sake, it's time they took some responsibility for themselves and stopped relying on their great great great great grandparents. Anyway, by then they'll all be flying around with solar powered jet packs wearing futuristic lycra jump suits. Or possibly wandering round a post apocalyptic wilderness trying to dodge the packs of ravenous crazed polar bears. Either way, I shouldn't think they'll give a toss about a pair of broken headphones. And why do they break anyway? It's the wire, always the wire. They're put together with stuff with the width of a spiders back leg. I don't know how they get a single electron along it , never mind a whole song. Makes me long for the days when the old radiogram was connected up with a length of woven flex you could use to lasso a young steer and bring it to the ground. Getting in was comparatively easy. The main battle is psychological. You have to believe that something can be taken apart and fixed, when all around you, including the manufacturers, are telling you it's impossible. Somewhere, under the layers of plastic, there will be a screw, then it's a simple matter of undoing it and watching as hundreds of tiny components slip through your fingers and roll under the sofa. Two practical matters. Firstly, you probably don't need the microphone on the lead for a set of headphones, although I suppose you might if it were for a telephone. If not, you only need the 3 pole jack, not 4 pole. Secondly, unless you are uncommonly dexterous in the digital department, don't try and solder up a tiny jack plug; buy one like this ready made. Even for this you need three things:- patience, a steady hand, sharp eyesight, and a powerful but small soldering iron. I have none of these personal attributes, and I got my soldering iron from a man who used to patch up holes in the hull of the Ark Royal. The only thing I have is my resolve not to throw anything away, regardless of personal cost and marital breakdown. Success was mine, eventually, and I had again a fully functioning pair of child's headphones. Triumphantly, I rose from the kitchen table, to a cold, still, silent house. In the distance, an owl hooted, not something you often hear in Bermondsey. ^ Read less Spent hours looking for some earphone cable replacements. Found this instead...
