Hi, I have a pair of earphones with a broken jack (http://tinyurl.com/pystet3) and since I don't own soldering equipment and also because of my limited skills in soldering I started searching for alternative methods to fixing my earphones when I came upon this (http://tinyurl.com/nbwrczm).

But I can't find this jack anywhere locally and neither can I find it online.
So if anyone knows where I can find solder less headphone jack plug then please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Hi! Welcome to Pristine Note forum. The cables used for most of the present headphones and earphones are multicore wire, usually placed on the same jacket with insulation on the individual wires. To augment more strength they do add up stray cables. The advantage of this setup is that the wires tend to be thin and save production costs. These wires are not ideally suited for solderless joint ... Why?

Because the total strand of wires are very thin and small. They will not be able to take the strain of the locking screw and will fail soon.

I would suggest that you buy a stereo cable adapter, go to a local radio, TV or any electronics repair shop.... for a price not more than rupees 10 he will solder it for you. As you have not soldered before, its not a bad idea to get an iron , some flux and solder. There are plenty of video tutorials on youtube on these. The only problem being, the common flux that you will get in the market is wax type and you will get Lead/Tin solders. Both of them are good enough for the job you are looking for...

Just to make sure the longevity of the solder, make sure that you attach a strain relief on the cable. Your local solder guy can help you out.

We here at Pristine Note, would do it for free for you , but the shipping cost will add up your repair cost. Let me know how it goes...
To add more, Solderless jack will cost you at least 5 to 10 times more than a normal common jack. If you still have problems .... you could come down to our warehouse one day (with a prior appointment). .... Smile
