    i got a pair of ok headphones, nothing special and some computer speakers, same deal.

    Both have fuct up cables.
    Baicially, I need to replace the wires for both.

    This really that possible?
    where would I get the cable/ends?

    Cuz the cable is so small i can see issues arising

    thoughts OT?

    If they are cheap headphones and speakers, probably not worth it to try to replace the cables. Just buy nicer headphones and speakers. Start saving.

    so even a couple hundred $ is a sold chunk to me hah

    but would you just in theory solder new wire on to the speaker contacts.?

    A couple hundred can get you something real nice off eBay. Even $100 will go far on eBay for something modest. But yes, if they for some reason break, you can use some very thin gauge wire and solder it. Just use some heat shrink tubing or electrical tape around it and you'll be set. I'm a college student to btw.
