I have owned several "stilleto" models, including the S100, S200, and the S50. I bought the protection plan through Circuit City (now useless), because I went through 3 of these units in as many months.
I am sorry to say but you are out of luck. The solder that binds your headphone jack to the circuit board has been compromised and the unit is an injection molded unit that makes it very difficult to disassemble and repair.
You may be able to find a local repair shop that still does this kind of work, and may be able to help you, but otherwise you have an expensive piece of junk on your hands. I have had heard of several reports of people contacting Sirius directly and complaining, and potentially getting a deal on a new unit, or even a free unit, due to a malfunctioning unit.

Your only other solution is to some how plug the headset in, and pull the cord in a direction that allows for both headsets to function. Once in the is position, keep it there by taping (or elastic banding) down the cord so the jack keeps pressure in that position.

For the last year, I have had to pull the cord in a direction that allows for both headsets to function and as of today, now only one headphone works. I was told by Sirius to take my radio to Best Buy or Radio Shack to be repaired. I am going to try using the antenna headphones, so to bybass my broken headphone jack.

    I just took my Stiletto apart, which wasn't that difficult, to find that the solder that binds your headphone jack to the circuit board was compromised. I re-soldered the headphone jack back onto the board, but I still have the problem, so I assume the jack is bad. I doubt I would have any luck with finding a replacement and/or undoing my soldering job to install a new jack, so I am stuck with my repair. Guess I will go to Radio Shack for a Y-Adapter so to be able to hear in one channel in both ears.

I had the same problem with my SL100/headphones...they are terrible. I purchased the newer, more comfortable Stilleto2 headphones from tssradio.com. After a short time, the same thing started happening so I called and emailed Sirius. After some complaining (and threats to cancel) Sirius sent me a refurbished SL100 unit with all of the parts. The newer headphones still did not work properly, so I contacted the manufacturer (AllTec Lansing) directly. They sent me a new set and everything is working great. My advice would be to call Sirius today. Hope this helps.

Has anything changed with your phone's software? Have you tried deleting and repairing headset?

If you open the boom and long press the multifunction button does the headset light glow steady blue?

My turtle beach x1 mic doesnt work when i speak into the mic...how can i fix the mic???


What happens if you try using your X1 with a PC? The X1's green plug goes to the green Line Out (or Front) jack on your PC, while the X1's pink plug goes to the pink Microphone jack on your PC. If the X1 mic works with your PC, then the problem is the chat/controller cable and replacing it should fix the problem. If the mic doesn't work, then the headset will need to be replaced. Turtle Beach should be able to do that for you...

When i recieve or make a call i can not hear anything?


1. Take the battery out to reset/reboot.
2. Once it powers up, plug a wired headset into it.
If you can hear through the headset fine -but not thru the ear speaker, well then its the ear speaker that has gone bad. (Hardware problem.. if its less than a year old or u have cell phone insurance, call your cell company and see if they will replace that under warranty)
You could also try speakerphone and see if that works.. if the ear speaker goes out - maybe the loud speaker will still work.

Try wearing the headset the "wrong way". The left side of the headset on your right ear & the right side of the headset on your left ear. I have the QC15 with the same problem and it worked for me. Good luck!

A Bose headset is buzzing


The speaker in that Ear Cup may be blown. You should consider replacing the set with a newer one.

If you listen to this with that static noise you risk serious injury to your ear.
