So my headphones broke off inside my iPod . I decided to try the Q-tip & super glue trick . The Q-tip wouldn't stick to the metal enough for me to remove it , and being EXTREMELY careless , I got another piece that broke off , put about 3 drops of super glue on it , and stuck in inside the headphone jack. I thought I would then remove both pieces with something else .Turns out I put too much super glue , and now BOTH pieces are stuck inside my headphone jack , but with super glue . I have no idea what to do & if I should just go to an Apple store or if I can do something myself. If I do have to go to an Apple store , does anyone know how much they would charge me ?

iPod touch, iOS 6.1.2
