See if you can remove the ear pad from the can. There is usually screws on the speaker plate holding it to the cup back. Hope this helps

Stop a dog from biting people


To avoid a potentially life-changing law suit, I think a muzzle might be a good solution.

If the dog barks in advance of biting, you might try a special collar:

One side is working normally, I believe the other one may have a short of some sort in it, what would cause this?


Most probably the problem lies in the cord leading from your PC to the main speakerbox. This should be a standard DIN plugs stereo cable. Try wiggling this cable a bit and see if there are any changes, just to make sure that it is this cable. But even if there isn't any change, the probability of anything else going wrong is highly unlikely. If your PC gives normal stereo sound on headphones (eliminating the PC as a problem) then there's 99% chance that this cable feeding the audio signal is bad. You'll need to replace it with a standard DIN plugs stereo cable.
If however your PC does not give a stereo sound to headphones then double-click the speaker icon in the right lower corner of your screen, and see the output settings and output balance. The balance should be set to 50/50 so both left and right channels get the standard volume level, and that the output is set to standard stereo output.

The cable on the headphone is broken, no music comes out anymore. Can I repair them / open the in ear headphones to resolder them ???


If the broken link is along the cable (not in the earphone) just cut the cable very close to the earphones and replace it with a new one (a stereo cable should contain at least 3 different wires inside). If the cable is broken inside the earphone itself, it is possible to solder it but because we are talking about a earphone it could be hard to open them and to closed them back in.

Dog chew cable in half on my skull candy headphones. Can cable be splice?


Yes there are ways to splice cables together, This depends on the extent you would like to go to. if splice needs replaced near end replacement end can be bought at radio shack. You can splice wires together by striping the wires back and reconnecting them together making sure all wires are connected together and not touching one another, Twist red to red white to white and ground to ground, wrap with electrical tape each by them self use heat shrink to make it look a lot better.

Left cable came out of ear piece too


It is a very fiddly job and would need some very fine soldering even if you could open it without damage as it is very likely sealed !

Best option is to bite the bullet and get a new pair..

Preferably a different make !

Hi Meanmama

Is there still enough cable left from the headphones to the chewed end for comfortable use? If not you might have to replace the whole cable length.

If not, you can just fit a stereo mini jack (3.5 mm diameter) on the chewed end.

For this you will need a soldering iron and some basic soldering skills.

Are you able to solder a plug onto a lead?

Sound completely out in mono mode, distorted in stereo mode.


Assuming that you've tried plugging the headphones into a different device to check it's them, not the CD/MP3/whatever, that's at fault, then the most likely problem is a break in the screen of the headphones' cable. If you have a multimeter, you could confirm this by measuring resistances. If you look at the jack plug, you'll see it has three conductors to it called (reading from the end) tip, ring and sleeve. With the headphones set to stereo, you ought to see a few tens of ohms between sleeve and tip; the same between sleeve and ring; double that between tip and ring. My guess is that in your case, you'll only get a reading between tip and ring, with the two readings involving sleeve both showing open circuit. If you can see gross damage on the outside of the cable (where one of the children has ridden over it with a office chair again), you probably need to replace the whole cable. If there's no visible damage, the failure is usually just at the point where the cable goes into the jack plug (all the stresses when you move about are concentrated there). You can often prove this fault by wiggling the cable around while pushing it into the plug and seeing whether sound is intermittently restored. Solution here is to cut the last couple of inches off and fit a new jack plug. You will be able to buy lightweight screened stereo cable (if you need it) and a stereo jack plug of suitable size (the standard sizes are 3.5 mm and 1/4" - referring to the diameter of the sleeve) fairly cheaply from a hobby electronics shop (is Tandy/Radio Shack still on the go out there?) If you have to change the cable, use the way the old one is fitted as your guide to fitting the new one to the headphones. Either way, you'll need to fit the new jack plug. Don't forget to put the cover over the cable before you start to wire up the main terminals. Jack plugs usually come with solder tags. Of the two in the middle, the one on top is connected to tip, and the one underneath is connected to ring. The tag for sleeve is combined with a cable clamp usually just as a single hole halfway up the clamp. Strip the cable so that the insulated wires will reach the tip and ring solder tags, the bare screen(s) will reach the solder hole on the clamp, and the crimp grip at the top of the clamp will work on the sleeve of the cable. Double-check that the cover for the plug is already on the wire. Solder the red wire to the tag for ring (the lower of the two in the middle) Solder the other coloured wire (usually blue) to the tag for tip (the upper one in the middle) Solder the bare wire screen (both of them if there are two) to the cable clamp at the point where the hole is drilled through it. After all your soldering has cooled, use a pair of pliers to bend the arms at the top of the canble clamp around the sleeve of the cable and crimp to secure it all. Screw the cover onto the top of the plug. That should do it. A.
