    Ive Been trying for the last hour to get my Senhheiser HD202's to work again, so i bought a new plug. Now i found some how-to guides on the waysd of doing this, i managed to get only the right phone working. Now after many attempts this is really starting to pi$$ me off, the wires are painted and i took upon the advice to burn off the paint, still no luck. Do i have to chuck out this S*****ty head phones ? im in no finnancial situation to get new ones and i dont settle for cheap sony buds as ive broken about 5 pairs.

    Have you thought about taking apart the old plug to see how it's connected and to see what you're doing differently? I will sometimes "reverse engineer" things like that if I can't figure it out.

    The cables for head phones are notoriously difficult to work with, since they have to be so flexible and yet quite strong. They're often more fibre than copper. Very tricky to solder.

    My Sennheisers (HD 570) have a detachable/exchangable cord. I'd never buy expensive head phones with fixed cables.
