Headphones: the woes continue

I did it! I finally snipped off the jack from my headphones.

And it was all downhill from there...

Aside from the minor inconvenience of having no soldering experience, I have since discovered that the cable on my Sennheiser PX 100 headphones has wires that are notoriously difficult to solder. You can't just strip off rubber insulation: they insulate with a paint or lacquer coating that requires experience and determination to remove.

Any suggestions for a repair place in Melbourne?
