How can I fix my headphones, without buying a new pair?

I broke the jack on my nice headphones. :( Is there some way to fix them?

The jack size is (I believe) 1/4", the one that basically fits most iPods and PCs/laptops. I've already tried soldering a new jack, but I think that I also damaged the cable somewhere along the line so that didn't work. What I'm wondering is - is there a store or anyone that sells cables with already soldered jack on one side, and exposed wires on the other end that I can solder directly onto my headphones? Basically a readymade headphone cable without the headphones. Maybe there's an easier way to do this as well?
Here's some pics of the opened headphones, if that helps:
