There is a broken wire in the lead. You can replace the cord or locate the broken wire/s break the lead at this point and rejoin the wires. Make sure the joins do not short against each other. This joint may look a bit untidy.

SOURCE: my technics headphones have


First, check if the headphones work with another audio source, just in case the device you have them plugged into is not working.

If no sound is heard with another device then check if the sound is missing in both ears or just in one.

If you can hear sound in one earpiece but not the other then it's likely that the wires have detached from the speaker inside the headphone. If you have a soldering iron, solder, and feel comfortable attempting it then you could disassemble the faulty earpiece and re-solder the wires (there should be 2 wires attached to the speaker - signal and ground).

If no sound is hear in either earpiece then the cable could be broken.

You can diagnose this by wearing the headphones and bending the cord, moving up the entire length. If you can hear a crackling then that would indicate the cord is broken.

Again you could possibly salvage the headphones by locating the break and cutting the cord above the break (closer to the earpieces) and soldering on a new jack plug.

Hope this helps

My technics headphones have just stopped working, is it probably a faulty chord?

Unusual to fail on both channels at the same time, however the most common cause is a break in the wire just above the 3.5mm plug.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Well i put music in the mp3 and the music sounds weird. the music dont sound like the music at all. like the sound was changed help!!

This device has fragile connectors in the headphone jack. Most of my headphones don't cause any trouble, but one of them always bends the contacts back so other headphones don't work properly.

Symptoms of this problem are: the sound becomes quiet; some frequencies are muffled or inaudible (especially vocals and mid-range); no stereo effect. To be certain that this problem is with the device and not the headphones, try it with a different set of headphones. If the problem remains, the device is damaged.

Unfortunately, the only solution is to open it up and bend the contacts back into the headphone jack so they can connect to the plug properly. This is an advanced maneuver, and you are very likely to break the device permanently if you attempt it. I've been doing this kind of thing for years, and this device was one of the most difficult to work with. Fixing it will be fun for bonafide hardware hackers, but everyone else will be better off just getting a new one. Give the old device to a kid who likes messing with electronics... they can probably re-purpose the battery and the case. :)

My line 6 spider iii30 30 watt amp works with

There is likely a switch contact on the headphone jack that routes the amp output to the speaker. These jacks on most music stuff are JUNK and the contact may not be closing.

If the spring contact is bent so it won't close you can bend it to contact BUT the springyness usually is gone and the contact will be marginal.

Hi my Marshal G15 is making an echoy twang when played loud (& open E chords). does this mean the reverb is broken?

I suspect the vibration when it is loud is vibrating a reverb tank within the unit.

Test this bylistening with headphones and see if you get same sound.

It may be the reverb has a resonance or the cabinet does that is sensitive to your E chords.

The shock mounting of the reverb may have failed to isolate the reverb tank from speaker vibrations... hence the headphone test.

If you wrap the headphone around your iPod, after a while, it may bend a pin in the headphone jack, causing no contact to be made, therefor one side of music. You can try to bend it back with a pin, or order a new ******** www.ifixitcom.

Headphone problems

sometimes when overplugging the headphones people tend to loosen what holds it in place i suggest you insert the headphones about halfway and rotate them when and if you hear sound completely insert them but be patient
