Question about Sennheiser Evolution 100 G2 (SEN-EW152G2) Professional Headset

1 Answer

I have the sennheiser ew172, when i play my guitar through it everything sounds fine. good tone, signal, etc. but when i touch the metal casing on the bodypack it makes a scratching/popping noise almost like there is a short in the cable. but you can hold the body pack with a towel so your skin is not touching it and jiggle the cable and it is as quiet as a mouse. i have ran it through the mill with changing the input and output gain, and also changing the freq. several dozen times. what i need to know is: Is it possible that it could be a bad cable. Is there a way i can check ohm on the cable? is this a problem you have ever heard of? any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Do you have shoes on? Do you have grounding problems in this building?
It sounds like a lack of proper grounding ... try plugging the amplifier into a different power plug and see if the problem goes away or its characteristics change.
Put some shoes on if you are in bare feet. Sneakers. Something with a rubber sole.
It's not a bad cable from your description, it's an electrical pathway problem, where a poorly grounded connection is created when you touch the bodypack.
I am assuming you are merely "touching" the bodypack, as you describe ... not tapping on it ... if you are tapping on it to get the popping noise, then there could be something loose inside the bodypack, teensy weensy stuff.

No sound from my sennheiser 840s

Hi Suzanne, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you.
If you step back and look at this problem, there are two to three things that immediately come to mind: 1) have you hooked your headphone input to an output of another device like an amplifier or tv or ...? 2) Are you certain that the headphones are charged and the power to the base station is good 3) pairing the headphones to the base may be an issue.
Please clarify some things and anything else you can think of. Chad

Sennheiser mm200 totally dead

Well I have had the same problem as well, twice really. The first one got replaced by Sennheiser, very good service. Unfortunately about a year later the same problem, I am waiting now what they will do with this. I really like the little earphones but I need them to work. Untill now I have had great service which of course comes with the quality of the name.

No sound from RS130 headphones

I'm having the same problem with the RS140. Only a few weeks old, and no sound at all coming out (not even the beeps). Have replaced batteries and tried a different audio source. Base station lights are on and indicating it is receiving an audio signal, but nothing is going go the headphones.

Sennheiser MM 50 iPhone Mic & Button does not work

I had just the same problem and if you're lucky, the solution is very simple: due to the open headset-plug of the iPhone I had a lot of dust inside. Just try (carefully!) to get the dirt out of the jack with a pair of tweezers or a strong vacuum cleaner. In my case it solved the problem. Good luck!

Warranty? If not, open it up and look for unattached wires. If there's none, look for parts that look damaged, usually brown-ish. if there's any, they need to be replaced. Might get lucky and find parts
