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.

My ipod plays songs and i can hear the music but when i switch to radio there is no sound speakers do not work on radio..what is wrong????


Hi Fay
You need to clarify what you are saying....
Your iPod plays songs and you can hear music?
Where is sound coming from... Earphones?
How do you switch iPod to Radio....
Is there a cord connecting both together?
I would then suspect cord or connector type not matching up with radio input connector.
Connectors can be Sterio or Mono
Look at spacing on connector....
Earphone Adapter may help here

I have 2 different mp3 players that have been used in the car now I can't use the earphones as no sound comes out of them. They work fine in the car but I can't use them with earphones now.


If you used bluetooth to connect in the car, you may have to go back to the settings menu and reconfigure for audio jack output. If you used a direct plugin connection, try plugging your computer speakers in to the players and playing through them. If that works, your earphones may be bad.

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.......

There is a static noise coming from my ipods speakers and earphones


Thank you for your question.

It sounds like the jack on your iPod is a bit dirty inside causing static. Here are some things to try, assuming that your tracks are all stereo and none of them are mono tracks.

Try this:

  1. Power the unit off and the speakers off it they have a power switch.
  2. Get some rubbing alcohol and a paper towel.
  3. Pour a cap full of alcohol on the paper towel and grab the plug on your speakers.
  4. Twist the towel around tightly to clean the plug.
  5. Repeat this process on the earphone plug.
  6. Now take the speaker plug and push it in and out of the speaker jack about 20 times.
  7. Whatever you do, DO NOT pour any alcohol into the jack socket on the iPod itself.

If the problem continues, test your earphones and speakers with another product.

If they work fine, the jack in your iPod needs to be rewired.

If they don't work, then you may want to take your iPod, the speakers and earphones to your local Radio Shack store and show the Sales Associate what the problem is.

You may need to buy a stereo-to-mono audio adapter -OR- new headphones and new speakers.

If you still have problems after all of this, it may be time for a new iPod.

I have a Lanier Model VW-110 transcription machine. The plug to the earphones is only giving me sound in one side of the earphones. Is there something I can do to make a better connection? When I wiggle...


You are using stereo headset, but it is a mono output. So you need either mono headset or an adapter that will allow the mono sound to go to stereo output for a stereo headset.

Earphones on mono


You should make sure the headphone Jack is fully inserted with a firm push. It sounds basic, but it's happened to me several times.

No sound


Reset the player - double check the sound settings in the menu
if these methods fail, run the recovery method mentioned in the user's manual
if the recovery even fails, then it is a hardware issue with the headphone jacks and the player will have to be replaced
