Fix CS40 Headphone's wires to an audio plug

I can't get to fix those headphones by using a 3.5MM (1/8 INCHES) 3-CONDUCTOR PHONE PLUGS from The Source store. Those wires from the headphone itself are so much different than I normally thought which it makes even harder to fix it for me. Anyone can help me up here? Perhaps via a video or a set of pictures? Or suggest me a place somewhere in the Montreal area? Thanks. PS, It's driving me NUTS!!

SOURCE: I recently bought the Ifrogz

It does sound as if the wire has been broken. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer to see if your product's damaged jack is covered under their warranty. They do have a limited warranty that covers defects in manufacturing and if this damage is something that just happened out of the blue and not from any other sort of activity that may have caused the issue, then you should be covered.

Why is the sound in one ear only?

It's probably a broken wire.

First, make sure it happens with those headphones no matter what you plug them into. If you're using them on your computer, try plugging them into your phone or someone else's computer. If you're using the quarter-inch adapter, try plugging into something that will take the eight-inch plug (the picture I'm seeing of your headphones shows an eighth-inch plug with a quarter-inch adapter). If the problems goes away, then it's either the adapter or the audio jack on the original device. But a new quarter-inch adapter online or at your local Radio Shack. If that doesn't fix it, then the jack on your device is shot, and your best bet is probably to get a new device. (Before I spent the money on a new device, I'd borrow another set of headphones, just to be sure that the problem persists no matter what headphones you use.) If the device is a computer, then you can buy a USB sound card (which plugs into a USB port and has mike and headphone jacks on the other end) instead of replacing the whole computer.

But it's more likely that the problem will persist no matter what you plug into, and it's your headphones. It's probably a broken wire; sometimes if you jiggle the wires going into the dead earpiece, you'll get crackling to confirm this diagnosis. But it doesn't really matter why the headphones don't work; no matter what's broken, the repair is more expensive than replacement. Time for new headphones.

The above answer assumes that you are listening to a stereo sound source. In addition to trying your headphones on another device, you should make sure you're listening to a stereo sound.

Earpollution CS40's randomly stopped working

Ive gone through 2 pairs. Took first pair out of the box and they worked for 15 minutes and just stopped all of a sudden. Returned them and got a new pair thinking it was just a problem with the wiring from the factory. Got the second pair and worked great for one day and then same thing... im very dissappointed although they only cost 25 bucks. My suggestion is bring them back and buy something else with your money. Cs40s are junk!

No sound coming from iFrogz cs40 headphones Comfort series

No sound from yanked headphones:
Most likely cause is the litz wire has broken off internally from the loudspeaker of the corded entry side.
[1]: Remove ear cushions
[2]: Separate speaker-plate from headphone housing
[3]: Re-solder wire to speaker solder-tab.
The "Litz" wire may have broken behind its solderable bare copper part, in which case you mast clean the end before re-soldering.
The shellac varnish insulation can be scraped off a few mm with a craft knife, or flash-burnt with a flame.
If flash-burning, use pliers or dampened fingers to mask wire as varnish can flash back entire length.
Quite often, the leads are too short once broken, if manufacturer left little slack.
If this is the case, solder and insulate a short length of stranded intercom wire to extend the Litz.

How do i use my infared headphones and can i use them on my laptop

You should be able to use infrared headphones with your laptop. You don't give a brand or model, but they're all pretty much the same. The transmitter connects to an audio source (and to a power source as well, so you'll need an AC outlet nearby) with the appropriate cable, and you just put the headphone on and turn on the power. Some headphones take regular batteries, while others have a rechargeable battery like a cordless phone; those are recharged when you hang the headphones back on the transmitter.

The couple of infrared headphone systems I've used both had RCA input jacks. The headphone jack on a laptop takes a 1/8-inch mini-stereo plug, so you'll need an adapter with a regular stereo patch cord (RCA plugs at both ends) or a cable with the right plug on the computer end and RCA plugs at the other. Radio Shack sells both.

If you have questions about your headphones, you can usually find a downloadable manual at the manufacturer's website.

The 3.5mm audio plug broke off on my Beyerdynamic headphones. I need to replace the plug. There are four conductors but I don't know what type of plug to buy (4-pin?) or what the pinout is.

Two of the wires are ground (-) and two are hot/signal (+). You'll need a stereo 3.5mm mini plug (try your local RS...they also call them 1/8" plugs). The stereo plug will be divided into three separate connections called Tip, Ring and Sleeve. The Tip is right channel signal, the Ring is left channel signal and the two grounds should be connected to the Sleeve or ground connection.

If you get one side of your headphones backward (out of phase, plus and minus backwards) you'll know by the sound quality and so reverse the wires of only one side to correct.

Speakers are ok but headphone is not working

OK. Speaker works/headphones don't! Sultanrajia, what is refering to! Audio Amp, play-back record, computer, radio, TV, all communication equipment. what. It could be broken wire on the headphone jack plug or it could the headphone aren't working. Maybe some bad wire in the headphone cable, faulty plugs.

By the way, do have a Night Visison optic devise that it can take a look into the night. Also, how does the spearkers and headphone work with the Night Vision Optics? stewbison

My lg dare has no audio i cant hear or be heard, I cant even hear the dial tone, how can i fix it? I am having the same problem with my dare. I tried plugging in headphones but it didnt help. I can hear...

You probably plugged a headset that does not have a mic. after you unplug it your phone will think that the head set is still plugged in. these phones are stupid and after you unplug the headset it will still be looking for the mic. Plug in and out the headset rapidly and then your phone will give you a notice saying that there is no mic to the headset. this will fix your problem. P.S. keep insisting, this fixed my problem
