Major Headphones Problem (cutting off vocals, background music when moving wire)

Headphones: Tecware Q5

 

My headphones have been having this problem since about 3 days ago. The vocals would cut out if I moved the wire or audio would just disappear completely. Right now I just have a part of the wire coiled on top of my headphone mic and it's working fine. Although, any major movement to the wire causes the vocals to be cut out again. Any help?
 

(sorry if i didnt use some terms correctly. im not really well versed in audio)

It might be a problem with the cable inside the headphones, over time the cables wear out on the inside and in some cases cables even snap on the inside. then again it could be what port your plugging them into, try blowing the port with compressed air, if that doesn't work, swap port, if that doesn't work, your f*cked. if anyone else has any ideas, please post them because this has happened a lot to me in the past and I can't really figure out what the problem is

Yeah, it happened to me. If its not the port then you'd have to replace the broken section of the cable or even the jack. I had to do that uncountable times...

I wouldn't be able to tell you what is the electrical cause of this but I suspect that the hot wires (the ones who carry the audio signal) break and short to ground or something. Anyway most posible cause is broke wire.

It's called phase cancellation, if the left and right side short audio that is identical on both sides cancels out, because vocals are almost always panned centre they disappear.

 

This is likely due to a faulty port or a break in the cable somewhere, try cleaning out the port with 99% isopropanol and if that doesn't fix it you don't really have any other options.
