Question about Shure SCL3 Headphones

1 Answer

Losing sound in my Shure ear buds, they are one year old.

Cleaned excess wax etc do not see any plugging. Problem is definitely within the buds and not the ipod as the same issue occurs when I plug into other hosts. Sometimes the sound will completely die in one ear or the other.

The wire breaks after a while in ear buds ,and head phones due to the constant flexing,and moving.they probably need to be remade.by cutting out the bad part of the wire(usually close to the fitting)You can usually wiggle the wire and find where the breaks are that way.it can be a real pain re soldering ear buds.also check the plug end by wiggling the wire there.

    Have had two sets go down on me in this way. Both sets are one to two years old and not used very hard. Left phone is fine, but right phone is barely audible. Both are clean.

    A real bummer. Shures have great sound but very poor reliability especially for cost. Can anyone recommend equivalent sound and better reliability outside of the Shure brand?

    I have the exact same issue. Right channel OK, left channel no signal. This is my second pair of Shure in-ears, the first one got binned because of cabling issues too.

    Apparently, their new SE315 offers replacable cables, so they recognize the problem, but I'm still in doubt wether to bite the bullet and get me a pair. This has cost me so much money already...

I have only used my Shure psm 200 one time and I had trouble with highs. When I would belt out a high note the sound would distort or go away completely. I hope you can help, I'm really hoping to love the...


Brief research didn't turn up "protection" circuitry that could possibly cause your audio "go away completely" but I will assume that the distortion issue is just because the system is set up incorrectly. In-ear systems can be tricky to adjust as too much volume can distort the tiny "ear-bud" type earphones, and damage your hearing. Check online for your model as I found a manual that specifically addresses safe volume levels at the beginning of the owners manual, followed by operational settings, etc.

What is ear wax and do I need to get rid of it?


Ear wax always gets a really bad press but it's actually there to help the protect the ear. It's produced in the ear canal and then slowly makes its way to the opening. It should come out naturally by itself or with gentle daily washing. When you use ear buds you just push the wax deeper into the ear and ultimately that increases the risk of infection.

Lh earphone of my Shure se210 volume is very low. Have cleaned the earpiece multiple time using the supplied tool. It sounds louder in the rear of the earpiece than inside of the ear. Any suggestions?


The dirt is clogged in the front end if the sound is clear at the rear. So it will be needed to clean the earpiece once again taking care to see that there is no dirt/ear wax clogging the sound vent.
If possible use fine bristles to brush out or clear the openings till the clarity improves since you mentioned the earpiece is working well when heard at the rear, if not the LH can be weak.

I have lost sound in the left earpiece. Are they history?


i think i might have fixed the same problem i had with mine. I took off the gel cover thing and put a tack or saefty pin in the hole of the gray speaker cover. pull the cover out and clean all the ear wax off the speaker part. it works great now after i cleared the ear wax from the sound hole.

One ear bud does not have full sound, i think it might be ear wax any way to safely clean with out damaging the speaker?


This is caused by microscopic wax build up in one ear. You'll probably have to send the earphones to Shure for replacement.

Sennheisser cx300 ear buds ..one channel has lost volume.


I have been having the same problem for the past week, I have just fixed it, reading your post gave me the idea to clean them and it actually worked

What i did was to "heat them up" with a hair dryer so that any wax from my ear that had gotten inside would "melt", then I cleaned them with alcohol and a q-tip and I made sure I let a bit of alcohol to get inside the ear bud, then I dryed it with the hair dryer again very carefully and tested to see the results and WHALA works just fine

Sound very muffled in right ear bud


Yes, more than likely it is the wax build-up inside the screen of the earbuds. Take a tack and lightly pry the screen out. You will definitely see a noticeable amound of "gunk on the inside. Clean and you will hear a clearer and crisper sound. If you put the screens on flush and press them in they will stay.
