Only works in one ear, very quiet unless I bend the cord a certain way
I got EarPods with my iPhone a while ago and I had them stored away, but when I tried to use them, only one ear worked but it was very quiet unless I bent the cord a certain way. This isn't the device, I used it on my iPhone, Mac and iPad. It's the headphones.
Is there any way I can fix this? My cat chews through most of my headphones but they look practically brand new, so I know she hasn't touched them.
I don't wanna spend $30 on a new pair of headphones, especially if there's a fix for this.
