    Yup, I'm an idiot. I stepped on the cord coming from my laptop, causing it to break off at the metal part which is now stuck inside the headphone jack. I could try to find a tiny screwdriver and take apart my macbook or is there an easier way to get it outta there? My friend suggested a very powerful magnet. What a moron!

    Very small tweezers should do the trick.

    If you can't do it yourself, then any jeweler that repairs watches should be able to pull it out quickly and easily.

    Good luck
