Question about Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones
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.

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

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.
