My only pair of headphones shorted out on me today neither ear bud works unless you push on the cord just right and then its only one of them. I wanted to know if anyone knew a way to fix them with out just replacing the all together?

How good are you with a soldering iron, a very small tip and magnified visors? Even then it's probably a roll of the dice. The connection inside the buds are breaking down

These type of items were never intended to be repairable by anyone.

Save your time and exasperation and just buy a new unit.
You could spend many hours trying to find the problem.
