At first it was intermittent but kept getting worse. I know most people online say it's the cable but there is something strange about mine. Wiggling the cable anywhere wasn't doing anything but if I slapped the right side with my palm once or twice it would come back to life. Also if I tested the jack with a multimeter set to Ohms 200 it would come back to life too. But it kept getting worse (stop working more frequently) and now neither slapping nor multimeter can bring it back to life any more. Only the left side is working. I looked inside the cup and couldn't see anything wrong there. What do you guys think? The fact that the multimeter was bringing it to life made me think that the problem could be something else (not the wire). I really like these headphone and would like to try and fix them. But don't know how to. Is there anything I can do to try find the fault and repair them?

btw it's Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro open cup
