This looks like an interesting option.
Unfortunately snug, lol.Is the end rattling around loose in there, or is the jack holding it snug? Might be able to shake it out if you wedge a toothpick under each jack contact and jiggle the unit a bit, as Mr. Fender suggested.
I have used them to get tips of keys out of locks and other objects out of tight places for decades. The four thin wires on the left are just that, thin wires with a little barb at the end. I think if you slid one in on one side of the broken tip with the barb obviously pointing inward (so as not to scuff up the jack walls) and another on the other side it would get the job done.This looks like an interesting option.
I had a customer this week who had a similar accidents with his Axe-Fx III headphone out. We resolve with a long screw. Insert the screw, try to tight it then pull it off.

If I couldn't grab with small pliers or a hook, I'd be trying to stick something to it (yes, a bit more risky).
Either a soldering iron with a thin tip.
I'd put a dab of solder on the tip, put it in (against the piece of metal from your cable), then turn the iron off.
If it's metal, the solder should stick to it when it cools.
Or the flat side of a nail with a drop of 2 part epoxy on it.
I've been know to do dumb things though.
You’re right. Never had any problem like that with my own items but IMHO it’s not a problem of “Made in…” but many brands decided to lower quality of their item…Man, a reality check that for the most part gone are the days of “Made in the USA” of the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s & part of the 70’s!
Global economy! Consumerism!
“All the World’s a Stage” …for the elites.
I have a few items made in the USA back then! Including headphones.
Built like tanks! Including the plugs!
For sure!You’re right. Never had any problem like that with my own items but IMHO it’s not a problem of “Made in…” but many brands decided to lower quality of their item…
Make sure very thin and not dripping. 😬
Could you maybe put a tiny dab of loctite on the part of the cable that is out and slide it back in to make contact with the stuck piece? 20-30 seconds should bond it back together and then you should be able to pull it out. Obviously, don't over do it with the loctite.Support got back to me, looks like theres no special trick, and i'll have to make this happen myself somehow, or send it in. (eye roll)
Clever....saw a similar discussion somewhere, and the person used a plastic straw of correct diameter (large enough to match the inside diameter of the jack). The idea was to push the straw into the jack and surround the broken off tip, then slowly pulling the straw out with the unit/jack tilted downward so that gravity helps it to come out with the straw.
