Question about V-Moda Bass Frequence Bling Bling Black Consumer Headphones
Ive been using these earphones for almost 9 months and all of a sudden the left bud is very very soft. i tried switching them around to make sure it wasnt just my ears but its definately the earbud itself. i took the rubber ear canal thing off and cleaned all of it but they just arent working right! i dont know what to do now
Same thing happened to me today, so i took out the mesh to see what was going on. Like solution 1, the mesh was the problem and i removed it with tweezers but i couldnt help bending the mesh a little. Its not that its a problem of the mesh touching the cone but that the adhesive that attached the mesh was covering the whole underside of the mesh along with some wax. I removed the silicone adhesive with the tweezers and washed out the wax with some peroxide. The trickiest part is getting the mesh back in. I put one side of the mesh in with the small lip facing down, slightly bent it so it made a bump on the top of the mesh and maintained its convex shape and then squeezed in the other side with trying to keep the lip in while doing so. Took me a few tries but after you get it in push the edges in so they don,t come out again and file down the edges if there are any sharp pieces of the mesh protruding. And your done. Solved my problem, hope it works for you.

The same happened to me, and the reason was rather surprising. The metal mesh on your earbuds is most likely coming into contact with the speaker cones inside the earbud. The most probable reason for this is the buildup of earwax in the tiny gaps in the mesh. The easiest (but not entirely attractive) solution would be to use a small grabbing tool, like a tweezer, to carefully pull out the mesh and clean out anything inside the cone tubing, and then carefully push the mesh back into place. Do not be afraid to scrape off any gunk buildup on the mesh itself on both sides before replacing. Be careful not to push it in too hard when you are done, as the cone could still be blocked by the mesh. Once you are done, put the rubber cone back on and enjoy your music at normal volumes again! I fixed two sets of earbuds like this that I originally thought had a dead right earbud but was delighted to have them both working beautifully again after cleaning! It beats paying 30 bucks for another pair, and now I have a spare pair to fall back on.

If you are good at DIY and you have the tools try opening the Left bud, remove the wires and resolder them back in place. If you want to save the hassle of all that I'd suggest that you get a new pair of ear phones. The ones you have have lived their lifetime.
