Want to replace PX100 wires

I want to replace my px100 wiring with the iphone 3g headphone wires that have the  mic and audio controls built in. Essentially, I just need to open the ear pieces to solder the iphone wires in place. Any advice on how to open and reseal?

Just be careful, maybe try to find a guide to dissasembling the PX-100's - I had a pair go bad that I tried to open up and I mangled them somewhat - of course I wasn't being super careful, nor were they in great condition at that point. There's a lot of you tube vides about replacing the ear buds with other ear buds - it should be straight forward, minus the extra care for taking the PX-100's apart. Any concerns about impedance matching for the wires? Could this represent a degradation of the PX-100's sound if the wires are diff. impedance?

Hi. Suddenly the volume controls for my Sennheiser i300 headphones for iPhone have stopped working. Any ideas? Thanks in advance Paz

I thought this was another example of the proprietary world of Apple, whereas any non-Apple made or certified headphones/headsets with mic and/or volume control will not work with an iPhone or iPad (I am not sure about iPod). It took me many headsets to figure out what was going on. However, your headphones seem to be made for iPhone and sold in Apple stores. If this is the case, I will go back to any Apple store and talk with the tech people there about your situation.

Ac-648 mic not working

Either you have connected to the wrong socket on your computer, or the controls on your computer have not been set up. For example the microphone circuit is switched off or set too low for recording.

I can hear my game and my friends but they cant hear me

This means your mic has a short in the wire or is broken somewhere. Im pretty sure the skull candy lowrider headphones don't have a built-in mic. If this is your problem than you need to buy a mic.

See my tip on headphones jack/cable problems. Also sometimes they put on a special coating on the wires. You have to scrape the wire or file it to remove it. Spit is also good at making the solder stick!

Headphones w/ built-in microphone. Can both work with one jack?

the simple answer is No. The long answer is your laptop/computers headphone output and mic input are completely separate on the sound card. Meaning there are no tie to the audio in on the heaphone lines, and vise versa on the mic/line in. Sorry to disappoint.

Headphones with mic model # na

Most headsets do not come with a volume control interface but your mic can be adjusted by going to Sound and audio devices via the control panel of your start menu. The volume can be accessed through the audio tab. Also, depending on the program you are using i.e. Skype, Team Speak or other, your volume settings can also be adjusted within that program as well. Hope this helps.
