MDR-7506 - No sound on right side

Hi,

All of a sudden no sound whatsoever from the right side. Took the covers off both sides and the wiring looks sound. Tried wiggling the input (the gold stereo input to my laptop) to no avail. Tried wiggling other wires too. Any ideas? Could my right side speaker (driver?) be blown? Or maybe the input is damaged?

It sounds like the pin cracked. If this is the case, you'll need to soldier a new jack on it. Here's how, assuming you already know how to soldier a new 1/8" TRS phono plug.

Cut and strip the cord. There should be two copper wires and (on Sony headphones, at least) a red and a green strand. On a new 1/8" jack, there should be three connections. The middle one is left, and is where the green one goes. The short one on the side is right, and is where the red one goes. The long bit is the common, and is where the copper one goes. Before you solder, however, remember which strand is which, because you have to sand or burn off the colored enamel. (Use a fine grain paper, or use a standard lighter or stick match- anything else might damage or melt the wire)

I find that most headphones have to be opened up by going in through the part that fits to your ear. You might have use force to remove the foam covering, with that gone you should see a few screws.

test the connections repeatedly with portable tester... if the connections are not broken then try to detached the connecting vires trough its mini speaker then test again those two speakers by using portable tester, if the connection is cut then try to find some mini speaker to replace it. solder it gently but avoid the soldering iron touch the headphone speaker so long... a friendly reminder from hater_oyen@yahoo.com

Sony 7506 Headphone Replacement Drivers


One of the channels on my MDR-7506 gets a little fuzzy in the bass intermittently, too. It's got a sound like there's just some hair or something in there; it doesn't sound like an electrical noise. This is not a very professional solution, but I found the problem goes away if I give it a good tap with my finger, right on the driver (the part that faces your ear). No need to remove the covers or anything. The delicate parts of the driver are well protected from something as blunt as your finger. As long as you're not pounding on it or jamming things into it, there's no danger of doing more damage. In mine the symptom is a minor inconvenience, so I'm not inclined to buy new ones yet. I heard that special ordering each driver from Sony costs almost as much as a whole new unit, so repair isn't cost-effective if the driver really needs to be replaced.

As for replacement, well, for durable, multi-purpose headphones with great range at a reasonable price, the MDR-7506 can't be beat. Some people say they think the high end is too bright on these, and the low as well, but if you've got normal patterns of hearing loss, you probably need the slight boosts, IMHO. Just don't switch to anything else without testing them out with your own music first; if you go shopping for something different, go to a store that lets you test the phones and bring some CDs and/or a portable player with music you're familiar with.

By the time you buy a driver from Sony for $78 you may as well just buy a whole new set for $94.

On my MDR-7506, there are 4 screws, not one. Slip the ear pads off (they should pull off intact; don't worry) and the screws should be visible on the face of the driver housing. Remove the screws and you'll gain access to the wiring behind the drivers. You'll see the right side driver's 2 wires attached to the back of the left driver. I believe the ground wire is gold and the signal wire is red. In my case, my right driver is the one that's gone silent on me, and the culprit appears to be a frayed ground wire over on the left side. It's frayed right where the 'bare' (micro-insulated) wire leading from the left driver enters the protective black tubing that leads to the right. There might be just enough slack to cut and resolder it, but there's no margin for error. Does anybody have tips for working with these very fine wires?

A service "manual" (really more of a parts list / exploded view) is here (for now).
