I was happy how my earphones were the only not dying tech thingies.

Well ****, there goes that.

My left earphone only works when the wire is bent in a certain way.

Pro'ly no way to fix it or so, but any ideas?

I love my earphones ;-;

It could be the wire that's gone bad internally or a loose connection to the left driver of the earphone.

maybe the wire is bent so sound isn't full? That's what happened with my Sony headphones, but I bent the wire back

Does what I'm about to say destroy your theory?

If I bend the very lowest of the wire, so actually the thicker part before the plug-in (eh) thingy.. Then it works. Otherwise NO sound comes out of my left earbud.

Wire is broken, disconnected internally. If you know how to solder, or if the cables are detachable, you can fix/replace it.

If not, then the only fix is to get new ones.
