Buy a $4.00 1/8" jack replacement from Radio Shack - part # 274-0869, which has small screw connectors that don't need soldering.
Strip about 1" of the braided insulation at the old jack end, which will expose 4 very small wires: Blue, Green, Red, Copper.

Attach the Green & Copper wires to the tallest pin on the replacement jack.

Attach the Red to the shortest pin, and the Blue to the medium pin.

Remember to slide the jack cover onto the headphone cord before attaching any wires!

This works great, I just did it.

You will need to take it into your local electronics store for repair as the connections need to be soldered.

Take care!

My 30 millimeter jack brock aftrr 3 days! Help!


Skullcandy headphones are infamous for this happening. Luckily, there is a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. Or, if it's possible, I'd return the product to the place you purchased it to get a replacement.

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.

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.

Loose Wire, please help


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.

Weird sound.


You will have to test the wiring from the plug to the speakers individually with a volt ohm meter. Wires this thickness break or go intermittent easily. Don't take them apart if they are still on warranty. Take them back to where you bought them and get replacements. Be sure to take the original packaging if you still have it and the sales receipt.

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.
