    eh?

    How bent are talking? New headphones go for as cheap at 10 bucks and that's the likely situation for you.

    I recommend pliers. Or should that be puraiars.
    With a piece of cloth over the jaws of course.

    does it not work anymore? does it not fit in anything? how bent is it? if it's pretty badly bent, i don't think you can do anything about it. if you don't want it showing maybe you can buy a headphone extender (assuming the bent end still works). You could also solder a new jack on...

    Find someone who knows how to use a soldering iron.

    You can get a new plug for about $2 at Radio Shack. Then, you can cut the old plug off (right at the end of the wire), and solder the new plug onto the wire. It's simple. Should only take 5 minutes start to finish if the person is good with a soldering iron. Done lots of this myself.

    The problem, is that few people are experience with a soldering iron anymore. Repairing stuff has become a lost art for many. I repair stuff all the time. But, most people just throw stuff away.
