Pardon me, but could I ask you for a confirmation, or perhaps should I say a clarification?
I have a problem of damaged headphones wires (the sound’s randomly getting cut following random movements around an area that’s damaged). I can fix them (cut the damaged part, remove isolation, braid together the wires, tie together with a soldering iron or electrical duct tape, make sure it’s isolated again, OK), but there’s something I am not sure of…
With headphone audio wires, not digital but good old jack plug,
– is the sound “ALL OR NOTHING”, perfectly good sound, or no sound at all, and nothing in between
– or is there a possibility of poor sound quality being delivered, but still, sound is delivered
– And in that second case, in case of improper wire fixing, should the sound be very noticeably damaged, leaving clearly no room for doubt that it’s not the original sound that comes out
I searched far and wide and, blame my poor google-fu, I couldn’t find a proper answer.
It’s rather important to me, that would be the second time my headphone’s wire is fixed, but if it means there’s a risk I’ll get bad sound for the years to come, at this point I say fuck it and I get new headphones. However, if I can be confident I’ll get the “original” sound I should have gotten, then it’s great news, and I don’t care if there’s an abominable home-made fix in the middle of my wires
Thanks if someone can take pity and tell a newb like me
