Headphone repair?

Let's say you have a really nice pair of Bose headphones (not earbuds), and let's say an animal .... oh, say your kitten ... chews on the wire/cord in a few places.

It looks like in two of the places she didn't damage the wire, just the casing, but in the third spot, mangled the wire. So now the sound just comes through one ear.

Are there places that can replace headphone wire? I'm not even sure how that works - can headphones be repaired when the problem is just in the wire/cord?

When I was a kid and my headphones got mangled like that I would just cut off the bad section, take the coating off a little segment of wire, twist them back together, and tape 'em up. But those were with the cheapy head phones that always come with your walkman/discman.

I think kitten is in the dog house now.


I don't actually have any advice about fixing the headphones though. Sorry.

You're in Seattle, right?

Do you have any high-end stereo shops, preferably the more mom and pop the better?

You could try that, here's a quick Google search:

I don't know how much your Bose headphones go for, but it's probably cheaper to buy a new pair vs. paying for repair.

I think, due to an unexpected offer of help, I may have an answer. Thanks for the suggestions.

It's good to know there are shops that can do something like that - I didn't know if headphones could be repaired. Thanks, elfa.
