Question about Altec Lansing (AHS-322) Headset

1 Answer

My mic is broken, so I tried to fix the headset by cutting the wires. Then I striped the wires. But I noticed that there were only 4 wires, yet there were 5 places to solder. Looking at the part, There are 3 connected wires that I have not cut off yet and there is 1 wire broken. That leaves 1 wire and 2 soldering spots unaccounted for. When I look at the 2 soldering places, they both have a small strand there, so I can not tell which one the wire broke off of. I tried searching online to find the blueprint of Altec Lansing AHS322, but I had no luck. I just need to see where the wires go. Does anyone have any ideas?

What i've done in similar situations is basically trail and error. You've got two spots for one wire, try them both out.

Some companies will use a generic piece for all their similar products. Maybe one of Altec's other headsets uses that 5th spot for something. Just try them both out and see what happens. Just dont solder them right away, stick them on with some electrical tape or something to save yourself some time. Then when you're sure you can solder away.

I have a telex airmen 850. I tried calling to see if it was still under warranty- with no help. It's $200 flat rate fee to ship it there... Is there somewhere else I can send it to be fixed? It was working...

Don't know why answers for different type of headsets shown up on a question about the Telex 850. Probably there is an issue with the cord. The cord has two shielded "double" wires on each pair. The ones for the mic are "white" and "light blue". May be one is cut preventing the mic to work. Look around for a local avionics shop, they should be able to fix it. Hope this helps ;)

Most people I try to talk to using the bluetooth complain that they can't hear me even whn I almost shout.

It could be that your mic is clogged up or dirty, or that you have a loose or broken wire. No way to know. If you try to clean the mic with a damp cloth, do not run it under water. Surgery drinks will leave crystals in the mic, which do not allow sound through. If it still won't work you may need to replace the headset.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Motorola mic no longer works. Any fixes?

This is probably a broken wire inside. the microphone piece moves back and forth to turn this unit off and on and the wires have broken because of it. there is a similiar problem with the H800 as the mic extends in and out to turn it on and off.

Left headphone stops working

Probably a broken wire, try to isolate where it is at & then cut the wire, strip it back & re-connect & tape it up. To isolate where the break is hook up your headphones & pull, push & twist the wire all the way up to the ear piece till you find a spot where it cuts out or comes on & there is your broken wire.
