Question about Skull Candy Lowrider Headphones

Loose Wire, please help

I have a pair of Skullcandy lowriders and I think there is a loose wire at the jack, sound only plays through one ear unless I twist and move the jack to a VERY precise angle. I do have a warranty to replace them..but i recently got them signed by my favourite band so I really dont want to part with them. Any advice to fix this?

You will have to buy a replace ment jack and solder the connections. These cords seem to have different colors between manufacturers but start by soldering the green or blue (left) to the tip of the plug, the next ring to the red(right) wire and the base to the copper(ground) wire. Try to get a plug with a metal shield that unscrews and make sure you thread the cable through the shield right way around( threads towards plug before you solder.

Headphone Repair


The cable that is used in the headphones is actually very low quality and very weak so easily broken, You may be able to remove the wiring from another pair of headphones and use it.
Unfortunately Skullcandy are not a high end brand so no spare parts are really available as they are made in china as you can see on the following link.

I have a pair of skullcandy ind'd headphones and


Hello,
don't feel alone this happens on lots of head phone set up. What happens sense the wire run through the top over to the other side and head phone are constantly put on , twisted, adjusted and so forth, the small little wires that are normally soldered to the two wires to each side get loose. Only thing you can do to attempt to fix it yourself, is to take off carefully the right side ear piece, and get to the exposed wires, you will then notice most likely it will be smashed or loose. If you or if you have a friend that knows how to solder, than, you would make sure wire is cleaned, stripped and re- solder it. Than problem will work. I am sure that is the problem, nothing else it could be. Thanks Mike ( premium expert from fixya)

Got my Skullcandy Lowrider Headphones 2 days ago, fine at the start, but then the music only played in one ear, unless I wiggled the headphone jack about a bit. Today, it got worse, with neither of them...


I suggest you take them back to the shop and see what they say, hope you kept the recit! Otherwise contact Skullcanday. Don't attemp to fix it yourself or you won't get your money back or any replacement, as you should under law.

My skullcandy earphones are busted


could be caused by the way you wrap them up the cords should never be wound tightly it causes a short and it just so happens that earphones are made of light weight wiring to make them seem to disapear when wearing them so what to do is instead of winding them when your done simply fold them loosely so to speak

Blown headphones


I'm also a stickler for sound I was devastated when my iPod touch headphone jack broke. I think it's impossible to find a pair of headphones that never blow. I'm using skullcandy lowriders at the minute and they are great except you can hear the sound coming out of the headphones from a mile away. I would reccomend sending your headphones back to Bose or wherever you brought it from. Most stores have a 1 year return guarantee on all products. Hope I was of help, Jess.

SKullcandy lowrider headphones cut wire


Take it to someone familiar with electronics. SOME of the wire types are very hard to solder. These are kind of "tinsel" wires for flexibility.

They likely can be repaired and some shrinkfit tubing put over the splices.

I can't seem to hear anything from my left ear in my Skullcandy Lowrider headphones. Is there anyway to get them fixed with out needing to get a new pair as they were a present??


If you have used the headphones a lot then your wires probably broke. I had the same thing happen to me, and also on a pair of expensive sony earphones. So it's not the brand. It just happens over time when use headphones/earphones a lot.

Lowrider 360 Skullcandy Headphones don't seem to work on my xbox.


The thing you need to realize is, the headphones are not defective. Headphones cannot choose to individually make voices/game noises/music louder or quieter. Either they play audio or they dont.
What your issue is, is configuration with the xbox (the soucre FEEDING the headphones) Only there can you choose the amount of voice/game noises/music and their respective levels.
Below is a link that headphone company has on their site for the settings you need to change in your xbox.
http://www.skullcandy.com/manuals-and-drivers.html (see the second section, second option doesn "xbox settings for lowriders")
Any further settings will need to be assisted by an xbox support person.

I cant use my microphone on my skullcandy lowrider headphones


OK OK OK, the lowriders use dolby digital with WMA playback, and there is a setting in ur xbox settings where u can change that. BUT UR NOT DONE YET. press the Xbox button, go to settings go to prefrences, go to mic and check the box that sais "play through both." and now u can hear the ppl and talk. however, what they dont tell u is that the mic interfears with the WMA, so all u need to do is just buy an inline volume adjuster at walmart (wally world) for like 3 bux (the one that coems with it is regualted by FDA or wtvr and has no sound which is verry unlike skull candy). THESE headsetes arnt cheaply made at all 2 tell the truth, they shooda came with instructions, but once u get em going, they r insane! i have a pair of turtle beach x5s and its nice, but not as good asthe lowriders. and anotehr feture they dont tell u, if u get a volume adjuster with the "base gain" swicth, it works on the lowriders, so u can add a little rumble and umph to ur headset.
