    that looks like a regular solder pad to me, or did the copper fell off?

    If I am not wrong, its a headphone speaker. Do one thing. Apply enough flux to the left solder point of the damaged portion and solder the required wire there and it will be back in action.

    Do you think it is redeemable?

    I mean all I did was solder the pad by mistake and incorrectly removed the solder in the first place?

    I'm not sure - on one end the copper is shiny, on this end it is submerged by black material. I don't know if it's burnt or it's fell off? Any ideas? Solutions?

    It is easy. Even I did these mistakes when I was young. The solder pad was overheated and the adhesive failed to bond it to the board so it went away.

    Here you go.

    @awan: I think it will work if you solder a wire on that area because it does not matter what is the color of the point the more important thing is the electrical contact and moreover when you try to solder the wire, this black layer would dissolve in the solder and you have the good electrical contact.
