    The tip of the mini jack on my Shure headphones broke off. Is there a way to replace just that part without having to get a whole new pair? If so, where should I go to buy/? It's gold-plated shown below:

    A plug like this one from Radio-Shack may work for you. The wires used in some headphone cables are very fine and you may run into problems stripping them and attaching them to the plug. The diameter of the body looks like it is larger than the original plug.
