Default Earphone component help

Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and I am excited to be a part of a new common interest. A little background: I used to be a djay and that's where i enhanced my passion for listening to all types of music. I am currently having a technical problem with one pair of headphones I have. I have a pair of V Moda Vibe Duo's and I (along with everyone else) have a problem with one earbud not transmitting sound. Post inspection, I have narrowed it down to the (connector?) because of the wire sheathing is fraying in that area. The piece that I speak of is the connector that has each earbud wire go in one side and has the wire going down to the headphone jack coming out the other end. The aforementioned piece refers to the accompanied picture below. It is the 2 to 1 wire connector that is silver in the picture. (sorry guys it's so large) And I am having trouble locating a similar or variant of the piece. I don't even know what it's called! I would like to know where I can purchase the above said piece and what it's called as well! I tried Markertek already and they said they don't have it. Please Chime in and give me some pointers. Thanks. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/MaryJoy/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]Click the image to open in full size.

Hello Normanio,

I think that the silver item is just a cover. Inside the cover the single cable splits into two cables (i.e. a junction). The silver cover protects the junction.

I would...
remove the cover
repair the damage
protect each repair with heat-shrink sleeving or a small piece of tape
add heatshrink overall to protect the junction (instead of the silver item)

Note: inside the silver item the wires are going to be very fine / thin. It requires you to be "slow with finesse" (!) to make a good repair. (Perhaps you can practice on some junk wires first?)
