Headphone wire repair. Is there a better solution than cutting off the plug and splicing a new one?

My favorite set of headphones (Sennheiser PX100) has a internal wire break near the mini plug. Bending it at the strain relief will temporary restore stereo, otherwise I only get sound from one side.
The wire is not removable. The headphones are glued together where the wire comes out, so I rather not touch that.
Before I cut the connector off and sacrifice one off another set of earbuds, is there better way? I am just planing to splice the wires then use some heat shrink to protect it.
