Help Fixing ATH-M50s

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Long story short, I damaged the jack on my ATH-M50S by tripping over the cord and nearly yanking it out of my PC. I did this at an angle however, which bent the entire jack to the side. When I plug them in, I only get one channel. The jack has a hole near the bottom (pic related, though not clear), which I assume is the cause.

Is it worth attempting to fix this by attaching a new jack (or replacing the entire cable), or should I just try to sell them and pick up a new (different) pair of headphones? I'm not entirely happy with these headphones anyway.

TL;DR fix headphones or sell to someone who will?

The fix is easy if you feel like doing it. If you don't like the headphones, could always sell to someone with the pretense that they need to record them first.
