    I have an old wireless headset, the Plantronics CS50-USB. The headset worked fine until part of the cable starting having issues. On the picture I've uploaded you can see where I have to bend the cable in order for it to work. I have to use tape to keep it in place but that's just a temporary solution. I don't know what kind of connection is has but I'd like to know if I can fix it before having to buy an upgrade

    I've not seen any user replaceable USB connectors. With that said, the cable is just 2 or 4 pair twisted cable. You could conceivably, simply cut the old cable/connector off, and solder/splice a new cable with connector.

    Thank you. I didn't want to do that but it seems that I have no choice.
