Question about Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones

1 Answer

Left speaker not working

The left speaker of my Sennheiser 558 works only sometimes, like after a month or 2 of no use. I plug it in and use it and it works perfectly on low volumes, but once a decent amount of base kicks in, it dies out completely. My right speaker is perfectly fine though. Any help?

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.

SOURCE: Sennheiser HD201 headphones. Left hand cable

there will be 2 wires in different colors inside the cable,

these wires are enamel coated and sennheiser has best quality coating over the wires, so soldering this could be a bit messy - this is the procedure to do so

first take out these wire leads out for about a centimeter from both the ends, try to loosen the leads and yo will find small clustered strands of fiber wound between the leads try to remove those fibers (only the visible ones) completely from both the ends of the exposed leads.
take a blade and try to wipe out the enamel coatings from the wires (make sure that the 2 leads does not touch each other after removing the enamel) now connect (solder) both the ends of the wire with their respective leads (eg. red with red or green with green as applicable) now you should be good to go

Please understand this is a delicate job and require atmost attention use cello tapes wherever applicable and tie knots at correct places to avoid further damages

SOURCE: My left speaker has stopped working and gives no

This confirms that the wire is open on the inside and so the only job out for you to to have a close SURGERY to be done to rectify .
You must dissect the wire to see the inside layers, now as you tug the free state of the wire will confirm the position of the wire break. Cut and **** the wire sleeve to see the strands where it has come off, use a good soldering iron to solder after cleaning of the wires. Insulate the joints properly with tight taping and bind them together so that the fault will not recur.

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.

Why is there no sound even in bypass mode?


The bypass switch developes dry joints after some time. The earpad has to be removed and the speaker plate unscrewed and lifted back. The cct board connected to the switch will now be exposed so the switch legs can now be resoldered. Reassemble and you should be good to go.

My left cup has stopped working in my sennheiser pc 350 headset and I would like to know how to get it working again.


when one of the cups stop working it is a loose wire and you have to identify the wire cut and restore the connectivity ..Usually the cut is near the entry in the headset ..or in side on the mini-speaker ..
You will have to open them up and see where the wire is interrupted

I have Seinheiser HD 202 headphones that my dad bought me for Christmas about a year ago. About a few months ago the left earphone stopped working. I have tried messing with the jack but that didn't seem...


The fault is in the cable: you will have to dismantle the left speaker housing and start cutting from the cable until the break is removed then solder it back to the speaker - use an multimeter to check the continuity of the wires.

Sennheiser MM100 bluetooth not working


Yes I had the same problem. Under some circumstances the MM100 freezes (didn't figure out when just yet). It's a software issue inside. Solution: open left speaker (the side with the charge connector and hence the battery). Discharge the battery (or just short circuit for half a second) and it works again. Sennheiser should built a reset button on these things.

Both cans keep cutting out


Check the 1/4' stereo phone plug for broken wires if you can unscrew the shield. If that is not the problem, you will need to replace the plug and the cable up to the left can. I say left because there is another cable from the top of the left can to the right can carrying the right signal. You said left was mostly cutting out so that connecting cable is likely fine. Slip the foam ear pad off the left can and see if there are screws holding the speaker plate to the cup. Inside of the cup there should be a place where the main cord meets up with the other cord. Make note of the connections and the colors of the wires. You should be able to save the cable grommet by cutting the cable close to it and pulling the wiring out of the insulator and then peeling the insulator tubing out. The rest is parts, soldering and careful, patient work. Remember to solder in a ventilated area.

Right speaker doesnt have sound


1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)
