Question about Sony Fontopia MDR-EX81LP/B Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

Earphones output is mono when plugged into a computer.

Brand new earphones. Work fine on ipod, however when plugged into computer sound only comes out of one earphone. I am not that savvy with computers so I have no idea where I would go to fix this, but they should just be plug and play right?
Cheers

You're right - they should just plug in and work.

Some possibilities:

1. Open Volume Control on your computer - if you don't know any easier way, you'll get it from Start_All Programs_Accessories_Entertainment (in XP, at least). Once that's open, check that all the Balance sliders are in the middle of their travel.

2. See if matters improve if you fiddle with the plug - pulling it out a millimetre or two sometimes makes a difference, as can wiggling it from side to side.

3. Try other headphones on the computer - it may be that the sound card is faulty.

I plugged my earphones into my ipod and laptop to play music, and the music comes out of my left earphone, but not the right


Hello,
This could the way the music is been recorded if it is strero or mono, also do confirm the earphone if one side of the earphone is faulty or not, if bad replace with the exact type and if not the media itself is faulty, you can take it the an electronics repair shop for them to diagonised the appliances... Hope this will help in solving.......

Try them in another device. If still the same contact the place where you bought them. If they work in another device, it could be your ipod socket is damaged.

The sound is coming out perfectly in the right earphone but it is barely coming out in the left earphone


Then you need to adjust the earphones plug in, adjust it gently and it will sound right on both earphone. It is the plug that is causing the problem. Adjusting it will solve the problem for you.

Sound only comes out of one earphone on ipod touch. earphones work well with other appliances and no problem with ipod.


I guess the connector on the iPod touch could be faulty. Some cheaper headphones might have a slightly wrong plug so it does not connect right, but I don't think this is the case in your setup. Try another headphone on your iPod and see if you still have one speaker to know for sure.

One earbud stopped working


what happens is inside the cord where you have your ear phones connecting to your ipod, there is a thin wire that can easily brake. it happens if u for example, rap your ear phones around your ipod. if your rap the chords to tight, the wire can break. it can even brake when you move the cord too much. such as spinning it, shaking it and such.
the wire that breaks connects to one side or both sides of your earphones, which produces the sound. if you can hear only on one side, the cord is damaged and cant be fixed.

i would go and buy new ear phones
i perfer skullcandy in-ear earphones because the wire is secrurly wrapped, and doesnt brake easily such as other producers. the skullcandy ear phones are in my mind are much better then other earphones. you actually feel like your in the room or at a live show.

A earphone quieter than the other


I've had two pairs of the Philips Swarovski Active Crystal earphones & neither have worked. Both sets sounded 'mono' rather than stereo. I can't get anyone at Philips to help with them. They have been discontinued globally - obviously because they weren't very good.

Right headphone goes in and out


Unfortunately, you'll probably have to send the earphones to Shure for repair/replacement.
