    So a friend's Friend broke the jack on her Headset. It's split clean from where the cable meets the jack.

    Solution is to find a suitable 3.5mm jack, and get it soldered on. However the kinds available are the cheap 15-20 rs ones in the market, which are not good quality, and the dimensions, specifications are at best questionable.

    Is there any shop/site that keeps such items in stock for high end audio equipment?

    Thanks in Advance.

    For high end stuff .. I think you will find full cables.

    So you essentially re solder it at the speaker in the headphone?

    I would suggest getting a high end complete cable from a dedicated audio shop where you can get good quality amps, mixers, etc sort of equipment and then it is your choice where you want to solder it. I would do it at the speaker end.

    Some old audio technica headset. Din't try opening it yet. Current plan is to get a regular 3.5mm jack and get that soldered onto it.
