"The headphones showed 90 percent recovery, with only mild volume loss overall and approximately four cm of cord shortening, Skalski added in his report."
New York, July 20 - This may sound bizarre but a US doctor has used X-ray machine to fix his broken headphone after diagnosing a tiny break in the cords.

To find what infected the right earphone, he X-rayed different parts of the cords and found a four-mm tear in the wires, right next to the splitter.

Matt Skalski, a radiology resident at Southern California University of Health Sciences, damaged his headphones when shifting office.

Closed fracture of a speaker wire within its rubber/plastic sleeve is a rare headphone injury, usually due to a traction trauma, Skalski wrote in his report on Radiopaedia.org, a Wikipedia-like platform for radiologists.

He spliced it out and put it all back together.

The headphones showed 90 percent recovery, with only mild volume loss overall and approximately four cm of cord shortening, Skalski added in his report.

Moreover, the surgery cost Skalski just $1 and was over in 30 minutes.
