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.

Hi Morgan,

It sounds like there is broken wiring or a bad connection. Try to isolate where the problem is by bending a section of the wire while holding the rest still.

If you are comfortable using a soldering iron for electrical repairs, you can search on Google for detailed repair instructions.

Otherwise, you can give these ideas a try:

If it is near the Earpod, a temporary fix may be to use a hot glue gun to reinforce and prevent the wire from pulling. If it is anywhere along the wire, you can try to make a "stent" by taping part of a toothpick against the trouble spot to reinforce and relieve strain.

Good luck and happy repairs!

Try putting the plug in the ear phone jack and if it’s bent put them in up to where it’s still straight and bend it back to place
