If this is our case, the first thing we should do is get a working Mini Jack connector. We can recycle this connector using an old headset or buying one in an electronics store, they are usually very cheap.

The next step is to take the headphones that we are going to repair, with a scissors we cut the part where the connector is together with the cable that is damaged. Leaving only the speakers with the cable that is still in good condition.

Now we take the end of the cable that we have just cut and with some small tweezers we strip about three centimeters of cable. We remove the enamel that covers it until the three filaments that the cable brings are exposed.

In the event that our hearing aids bring four internal filaments, we take the two gray cables and we join them in the form of a braid. Then we take the mini Jack connector that we bought and remove the thread that it brings.

We can see that it has three connectors. In each of these connectors we will place each of the cables that we previously stripped. If we have soldering iron we solder these cables a little to make them more secure, ready in this way we have successfully fixed our headphones.
