If they are any bare leads in the connector then they are ground and can be put together. The other ones should match with color, but you might have to plug it in and mess with wire configurations to get it right. If this pair of headphones has a mic then it gets a little more complicated, but around the same. Just play around with the wires.

He is correct the bare wires are gound, the other wires are r+ and l+, which is which I don't know, but just try it and balance one side to the other to find out

i think it's time for a new pair of headphones... the only way to really do it properly is to replace the cable.

and I doubt the wire is actually bare... it probably has a clear enamel that needs to be burnt off. You need a solder pot to do this properly.

Bare copper wire's for ground are very common on lower end head phones, and as long as the problem in in the plug itself, it should be an easy repair, and yes you should solder them and use shrink tube.
