Usage correction: that's not the jack. That's the plug you're fixing. Jack refers to the receptacle (female) into which one inserts the plug (male.)

British say plug rest say jack

Or even jack plug. Then the female receptacle becomes the socket. Got to love the Brits!

Can someone please tell me how to fix the Jack (metal part that actually plugs into your phone) if it has broken off from the wire it was originally connected too. My car aux isn't working because the stupid wire broke off from the little metal piece (I guess the Jack) so it won't work. There's no reason to have the hole wire replaced if I can figure out how to reconnect the wire to the Jack or the metal part that goes into your phone for sound. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

The hole you use for headphones - Socket (referred to as Jack since Apple removed the headphone jack from its phones) or as the Female receptacle because… yeah

What you connect to the socket - Plug or connector

My beats by dre headphones only one side works at a time now since I removed the sellotape to stop the wires from touching metal.There are 2 inputs on my particular type of beats.One on the left and 1 on the right.But only one input is needed to make both ears work.When i plug in right side it goes but not the left and vice versa when i plug in to the left.Before i had this problem of only one side playing the 3 wires all use to touch each other so I’m wondering whats wrong are there two wires not supposed to be touching or is it because one wire not earthing or what.Also when i take the aux cord out of my phone everything works fine???
