Question about Sennheiser HD 600 Consumer Headphones
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?
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.
