I caught my latest foster dog "tasting" my headphone cord. I thought I was careful enough. All cords are kept in my bedroom by day and tucked up on a shelf by night. Well, I guess the headphone cord fell off the shelf and my little dog had some fun while I was doing something else. I didn't notice it yesterday but today I saw the wires poking through. Darn. Those were good headphones too.
I searched for headphone cord repair online but I couldn't find my kind of headphones. These have tiny wires twisted with insulating fibers. I tried the usual twisting of the wires together but it didn't work. The best part about these headphones was that they have a volume control on the cord. I could turn the commercials very low and ignore them. Oh well, I have some free earbuds that I can try. I'd really like some speakers for my netbook since the built in speaker is so weak. I tried using my computer speakers but for some reason I couldn't get them to work. I have walkman speakers somewhere...if I could just find them in all of my stuff. Maybe I'll look for them tomorrow if I can stand the stifling heat.
