Sockets of sennheiser hd600 broken

Hi,

I tried replacing the cable for my HD600s because I was having problems with sketchy/broken up sound as if there was a bad connection between the cable and headphones.

However, it hasn't done anything, so I assume it's to do with the socket itself (like the metal of the socket has been pushed back or something). Is there anything I can do about that, or do I need to just replace them with some new ones now?

Cheers

I've discovered the solution to the problem, I think. What has probably happened is that while wearing the head phone you have probably caught the cable any number of times on door knobs, under your heal, or perhaps around the feet of a passing dog. The cable is very long and very strong — it's Kevlar reinforced.

All this jostling has tended to bend the pins and probably the sockets they plug into. Using a delicate pair of jewelers pliers, preferably smooth-jawed, gently bend the pins outward (maybe even inward) so that they once again make a firm contact in their sockets. It's worked for me pretty well so far.

The fact that some people get no improvement from cable replacement suggests that the problem is with the internal cable sockets. The solution is still the same. I notice after doing a tweek that the plugs feel tight again.

MY sennheiser 205 headphones stopped working overnight. I can hear everything fine, the only thing is that i can barely hear the vocals. I did switch devices to see if that was the problem and it was not....


1) You are turning up the volume too much. Headphones, especially non-top of the line headphones, are not meant to be listened to at very loud levels. In this case, the crackling you are hearing is the speaker trying to reproduce a bass sound that is "clipping", or exceeding the maximum output level for that system. Remember - headphone speakers are very small; they have a harder time producing low sounds accurately. The solution is to just turn them down a little.
2) Assuming problem 1 is not the problem, the other likely issue is that they came with some sort of mechanical defect built in. If you are not playing them loudly, but you are still getting a crackle, especially if it is only on one speaker, they probably are broken. It is probably the jack itself, or the wiring leading up to the earpieces. Either way, it is not a terribly hard fix if you have some electrical know-how, but if you don't, there are plenty of people who can rewire them for much cheaper than it would be to buy a new set. However, if this has been happening since you got them, I would call the manufacturer first and see if they will replace them. Sennheiser tends to pride themselves in the quality of their equipment, so I would not be surprised if they sent you a replacement set.
Hope this helps!

It's likely the groud connection in the cable is broken. Possibly at the plug, it would mean no centre focus and no bass as the headphones get only out of phase sounds. I'm guessing you've tried them in another device - a faulty sockey would do the same.

HD600 no sound in one ear


Go inside and test the speaker with a small low power battery, connect it quickly (just a quick touch) to the terminals of the speaker, it should pop! If it doesn't it's gone.
If the Sennheiser don't have replacements, then it's bin time!

One speaker element may be blown or wiring may have internal break. It may be cheaper to relace the phones rather than having them serviced, unless they are still under warranty

Need instructions for replacement of headband and ear cushions.


It should be easy - I just eased mine out by pulling on the top and bottom parts of the headphone cushion/pad.

Hope that helps
