Can I solder broken wire back on using the old solder blob?

Hi! My headphones broke on one side. I can see the broken wire inside the ear cup and was wondering if I could just melt the solder that's there and push the wire back in. (after snipping the wire). I've never soldered before and don't know much about electronics.

Here's a picture, you can see where the wire's all broken.

Christian, as Shelton stated could be possible, but if you want a good clean trouble free repair at least get a little flux/rosin cored solder so you will have a clean soldered connection, saves from having to do it twice.

A small amount of rosin core solder can be purchased at most electronics stores and big box stores as well.

Below I will post a tutorial on soldering. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Should be possible, your picture isn't the clearest though. Before of your temp when soldering you don't want to melt anything. Maybe watch a few basic videos on youtube before you try.
