Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Where can I get a replacement swivel for AKG K 490NC headphones? The plastic broke right at the end that attaches to one of the earpieces.

The plastic piece broke right at the connection to the earpiece. I'm pretty sure I can repair it if I can find the replacement part. The headphones are less than a year old.

SOURCE: Shure E4C headphone failure

I just found out how to open the E4's.

What you do is, unscrew the metal cap that holds the angled earbud tube in place. Note that the tube itself can't be turned.

Then remove the metal ring behind it as well as the small rubber ring.

There is a 'hinge' at the cord end of the earbud, so what you should do is take a very sharp knife (I used a scalpel) and pry the top off the earbud from the end that had the ring mounted by inserting the knife between the top piece and the metal element. Note that it's attached with a little glue, so it will take some coaxing to get off.

How can i open my AKG k141 studio headphone to repair it ?

I had a problem with my AKG K141 Studio headset. The right side stopped working. Hard to believe but one of the leads to the ear speaker was disconneted from the solder lug. To disassemble, pry the gold AKG emblem using a jeweler's screw driver. You can pry it without damage by locating a small notch on the black plastic rim at the 6 o'clock position. Then unscrew ththe tiny phillips screw and remove black disc. You will see two leads (red and white) feeding through a hole. Disassemble removing a larger screw. This will give you accesss to the solder lugs.

I have AKG 141 studio headphones and the right hand side earpiece wont make any sound, i believe it is faulty wiring because if you move it around you can make it work.

take away the glued brandmark with a sharp tool (knife , little screwdriver) and you will find a screw. loosen it and open it. there you will see some cables witch probably have one loose. fix it by solding it.

Left ear bud lost all sound- no cord damage-only 5 months it worth getting fixed by professional or is there something I can do to fix it ? H

The cords are sealed into the earphone. You can take a multimeter and test the continutity of the either earpieces, once you are convinced that the left side is faulty, first of all use a small thin needle as the probe, use your multimeter in the continuity range, holding one end of the meter probe to the jack , inset the pin like an ijection into the wires to obtain the connection, it there is no connection out of the headphone jack, I think you can replace with a new one to be soldered. If not proceed to the earpiece to confirm, then open the sealed unit and be lucky if the earpiece is not damaged but only the wires. Good Day

Can I take apart the logitech A-00006 headphones easily.

The padding comes of easily, hook your finger under from the inside and push out gently. Once removed reviles 2 philips screws. Once they are removed you have to pry the 2 plastic disks that form the swiveling ear piece apart. Then you have access to the speaker, which is glued down with a still very sticky substance but will come up quite easilly, then remove the screw from directly under the center of the speaker, then you can pop off the swiveling earpiece that is on a kind of ball and socket joint, this took quite a bit of force. This is as far as i'm going as I now have access to the damaged part of the wire! And also the 4 screws mentioned in the original question. Hope this helps.

Wiring code for the jack?

You're right on the code, with the exception of the right and left. I'm an AKG dealer and spoke to their service department. Here goes:


To confirm this, I used a multimeter in continuity mode and tested them. This code is 100% correct.
