How do i repair the y cable on my sennheiser hd 212 pro headphones?

I'd like to repair the cable. both of the speakers work but both of the small jacks which are plugged into them don't work. I'd like to shorten the 3m cable and obviously fix the side that doesn't work. this jack is plugged into the headphone, not the audio device (laptop, ipod, etc.)

SOURCE: No sound output from rear speaker jack

Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.

SOURCE: headphone jack broken speakers wont work

Yes, since the Headphone pin is stuck in the Jack, you are not getting audio from Speakers.

You should have noticed that connecting the headphones to the Jack will block the audio coming from the Speakers and the same is the current situation.

You can either try removing the blocked part using a Tweaser or get it repaired.

If you are mechanically/technically incline, this link shows you how to open the MacBook Pro.
Maybe you can resolder the connector into place.

SOURCE: replacing headphone connector

The impedance or resistance of the two different sets of wires might be different. The higher the impedance the less signal. If your cable is long enough you are better off spending the five or so dollars for a new plug. Red is right, green or blue is left and copper is ground.( Usually) Unfortunately not all manufacturers agree. Also what could have happened is a short between the wires that you soldered.Make sure they are physically separated from each other and insulated.

SOURCE: headphone jack does not work, audio still plays from speakers

sound like the hardware supporting your headphones may have disconnected from its solder.This could have happened from dropping the notebook with the headphones plugged in and landing badly, or a strong or constant tug on the input. Otherwise, it could be a software configuration like you've tried

My sennhauser 110 only work on left speaker ,nothing ,no sound on right?????headphones


The first thing to do is to disconnect the Sennheiser wireless unit and try another headphone, preferably a cable type and see if both channels work. If the sound is OK on both channels, the fault is within the headphones. If you are lucky it will be the wireless unit plug or the cable and can easily be tested and repaired by somebody familiar with electronics. Otherwise you will probably need to have it repaired by a service shop or a technician. I hope the guarantee is stilll valid.

Left speaker not working


I don't believe it to be a cable or plug problem, so it sounds like it's a speaker problem. I look up the review of these and it could have some kind of circuit built into each side. If it does it could be that. As they are not cheap headphones by the look of it, perhaps worth repairing. But if the speaker has gone, it might be as much as a new pair.

Sound in one ear


I had the same problem, and it is a very simple fix, the cable connection can fall out of the speaker piece on the right side.

I have made a blog post with the steps for removing the cover on the Sennheiser HD570.

MY sennheiser 205 headphones stopped working overnight. I can hear everything fine, the only thing is that i can barely hear the vocals. I did switch devices to see if that was the problem and it was not....


1) You are turning up the volume too much. Headphones, especially non-top of the line headphones, are not meant to be listened to at very loud levels. In this case, the crackling you are hearing is the speaker trying to reproduce a bass sound that is "clipping", or exceeding the maximum output level for that system. Remember - headphone speakers are very small; they have a harder time producing low sounds accurately. The solution is to just turn them down a little.
2) Assuming problem 1 is not the problem, the other likely issue is that they came with some sort of mechanical defect built in. If you are not playing them loudly, but you are still getting a crackle, especially if it is only on one speaker, they probably are broken. It is probably the jack itself, or the wiring leading up to the earpieces. Either way, it is not a terribly hard fix if you have some electrical know-how, but if you don't, there are plenty of people who can rewire them for much cheaper than it would be to buy a new set. However, if this has been happening since you got them, I would call the manufacturer first and see if they will replace them. Sennheiser tends to pride themselves in the quality of their equipment, so I would not be surprised if they sent you a replacement set.
Hope this helps!

I am searching a sennheiser hd 238 spare cable but can't find it.... Any suggestions?


It appears that the 238 has a cable connected to one headphone only.
If this is the case, try your existing cable.
If both ends look identical and plug into your music player easily, you could try any audio cable with
3.5mm mini plugs on each end.

I have used such to drive low powered speakers, and discount the hype about audio cables.

If you look on eBay, entering "sennheiser hd cable", a number of sellers have cables, none specifically claimed to fit.
The cheapest among the first few entries advising the cable has a 3.5mm plug at one end and a 2.5 mm plug at the other. If my first suggestion is unworkable, this will probably work.

Alternatively you could try to find one locally, to test for fit before purchase.

Check the other sellers for a look at pictures and possibly details if I got it wrong at the start and your cable has 2 connectors at one end.

If all else fails, take your headphones to you local electronics supplier, get plugs that fit and get a good friend with a soldering iron to make you up a cable.

The right speaker of my sennheiser hd 435 is not working while the left one is working just fine. I checked the wires inside and found nothing amiss.


Hi, after checking the wire and no damaged,it means that the speaker itself is damaged.You can replace it if can get a spare around repair stores around you.


Thanks for using fixya...

HD600 no sound in one ear


Go inside and test the speaker with a small low power battery, connect it quickly (just a quick touch) to the terminals of the speaker, it should pop! If it doesn't it's gone.
If the Sennheiser don't have replacements, then it's bin time!
