Question about Skull Candy KB Electronics Skullcandy ( SCE-NF ) Stereo Earbuds Headset

Cut Skullcandy cord and confusing splicing process.

I accidentally cut the cord leading to the left speaker of my Skullcandy lowriders with a pair of scissors. I've tried to splice the wires but the innards are different from what I've seen. There are two separate 'clusters' of wires, one cluster is red, the other is gold, and then they're separated by a plastic 'shield' molded right around the wires. I attempted to connect the gold with gold and red with red but it didn't work, so I assumed that it was because the red and gold were touching somehow but no matter what I did it wouldn't work.

Anyway, any idea on how to repair a clean cut Skullcandy cord? I really miss these expensive headphones.

Buy a new cord and replace the old cord then you will not have a splice and it will look better.

My skullcandy agent headphones are only working on the left side,,,,,its blank on the left side


Sounds like there may be a problem with the cord.
Try plugging in your headphones and playing some music and moving the cord around. If the sound cuts in and out then you have a lose connection and will need to replace your headphones.

Left ear doesnt give out sound


there are two reasons for which your left ear head phone is not working:
1.If the insulation between the wires(copper leads inside the cord) fails....the two leads gets short circuited and it will stop working...OR some times the cord ll be looking good but inside one of the leads got cut then one of the headphones fails...
the solution for the above problem is dont wrap the cord...this ll lead to cut or insulation failure....
2.the speaker in the left head phone got failed...
dont forget to rate me...
good luck...

SKullcandy lowrider headphones cut wire


Take it to someone familiar with electronics. SOME of the wire types are very hard to solder. These are kind of "tinsel" wires for flexibility.

They likely can be repaired and some shrinkfit tubing put over the splices.

I can't seem to hear anything from my left ear in my Skullcandy Lowrider headphones. Is there anyway to get them fixed with out needing to get a new pair as they were a present??


If you have used the headphones a lot then your wires probably broke. I had the same thing happen to me, and also on a pair of expensive sony earphones. So it's not the brand. It just happens over time when use headphones/earphones a lot.

I have Altec Lansing 221, good sounding speakers but the connection cable from the speaker to computer shorts out. Any idea for a replacement cable? Thanks


I would disconnect the power before doing anything! then go to radio shack and buy a cable with the correct plug on it. Then i would cut off as much as possible of the old cable to the speaker, but leave enough room for splicing effectively. Then i would cut open the radio-shack cable and connect the wires of that cable to the remaining wires of the old cable still attached to the speaker. red is left, black is right, and the un-cased wire is negative. Try to figure out what is what on your old wire so that you can splice everything together accordingly. I hope this is not too confusing!! Good Luck!!

Loose Wire, please help


You will have to buy a replace ment jack and solder the connections. These cords seem to have different colors between manufacturers but start by soldering the green or blue (left) to the tip of the plug, the next ring to the red(right) wire and the base to the copper(ground) wire. Try to get a plug with a metal shield that unscrews and make sure you thread the cable through the shield right way around( threads towards plug before you solder.

I cant use my microphone on my skullcandy lowrider headphones


OK OK OK, the lowriders use dolby digital with WMA playback, and there is a setting in ur xbox settings where u can change that. BUT UR NOT DONE YET. press the Xbox button, go to settings go to prefrences, go to mic and check the box that sais "play through both." and now u can hear the ppl and talk. however, what they dont tell u is that the mic interfears with the WMA, so all u need to do is just buy an inline volume adjuster at walmart (wally world) for like 3 bux (the one that coems with it is regualted by FDA or wtvr and has no sound which is verry unlike skull candy). THESE headsetes arnt cheaply made at all 2 tell the truth, they shooda came with instructions, but once u get em going, they r insane! i have a pair of turtle beach x5s and its nice, but not as good asthe lowriders. and anotehr feture they dont tell u, if u get a volume adjuster with the "base gain" swicth, it works on the lowriders, so u can add a little rumble and umph to ur headset.

Wire has been cut


My wire was cut, and I made it worse trying to fix it....with several failed attempts... was becoming despondent, but gave it one last try, and was successful. First, each little tiny wire has two internal wires, one green (ground) and one gold (hot). At first, the green one looked like some fiber or filler and I cut it, connected the gold wires and nothing happened. On further inspection, with magnifying loopes, I determined the green fiber was in fact green wire. There was also a lot of clear fiber, which is insulation? filler?... I don't know, but I cut it out, leaving only the wires. From the internet, I determined that the wires had a thin layer of plastic on them for insulation, which I burned off lightly with a lighter, connected the green together, soldered it, wrapped in electrical tape, then connected the gold together, soldered it, and taped again....and to my suprise it worked. I used twist ties, and epoxy to strenthen the area and was done, my headphones are working again.
