Question about Creative Labs EP-630 Consumer Headphones

6 Answers

Right earbud plays really soft.

My ep-630 played fine for a while, but now my right earbud produces a very low volume, making it sound like all the music comes from the left side. The strange thing is that it does play my music, only a lot softer than the other one, so it couldnt be a breach in the cable or anything. (I think.) It doesn't have anything to do with the rubber buds, I checked that. The earbuds are pretty new, i have them 4 months now. anybody had the same problem or some advice?

    I have this very same problem. I have had the headphones for four months now, and two days ago the right speaker started playing very softly. I opened up the casing but everything is still soldered and the wires are not broken.

Here is a tip for people attempting to fix the mesh (which, as it happens, works great when done carefully)

use a set of nail clippers or small tweezers to grab the edge of the mesh and pull the mesh away from the earbuds. If you disconnect it completely, do not get upset. Use the tweezers to carefully scrape both sides of the mesh (try not to be surprised at the gunk that comes off)

Once you scrape them clean, carefully try to re-attach the mesh. if you pulled it off entirely and cant get it back on, you may have to be careful about your earwax buildup on the unit, as it can get deeper inside the earbud now that the mesh isnt protecting the interior. Otherwise, pop the bud's cover back on and enjoy your music!

Ive done this fix on two sets of earbuds since discovering it. One set had what I thought was a non-functional right earbud, but it turned out that the mesh was blocked and interfering with the sound! It was working like new moments later and I was very happy to not have to purchase new ones.

I found the problem with the right earphone. The meshing in front of the speaker cone which protects it from damage or earwax has been pushed in. The meshing and the cone were coming into contact and muffling the speaker.

I took a knife blade and pushed in on the edge of the meshing, which pushed the center of the meshing back out. So I still have a dent in my earphone, but it plays loudly again.

Thanks a lot for these solutions, saved me from buying a new set of ear phones.
An alternate way to fix this if you are worried about damaging it using tweezers etc, Stick a good quality tape or a sticker on the mesh and then pull it off, it will get fixed!However it'll work out only if the mesh is clean and isn't waxy, else the tape wont stick.

I had this same problem, too. Same side and everything. Seems to me like the company made a major flaw design. I did the thing with the knife, and the mesh completely collapsed, but the sound is back to normal. Now, how do I keep earwax out? lol

I found some pretty cool earphones... they are puregears purebeats headphones set. When I found them, the right earbud wouldn't make a sound unless I jiggled the wire by the speaker. And the left one...


The thin wire used in the leads breaks internally and there is no easy way to fix them, you could try to fit another cable to them but it is usually not very successful. Replacement is about the only option.

Sound is not maximum it give very low voice


Assuming that the device sound components are not malfucntioning only requires alteration of some buttons either to increase or decrease. Usually on the computer, the program from which the media is being played for example windows media player should provide the volume scroll buttons observable at the buttom of the screen for regulations. Also, asume that the windows media player volume is at maximum. The computer has a volume button that controls the entire sound from the speakers. Use the mouse to locate at the button right hand corner of screen the volume logo. Pointin the mouse arrow on the logo should receive a popup message requesting incrementation or reduction in volume controls of media being played. Increasing the computer button would produce much sound. However also, the computer speakers capacity should allow much sound. An external speaker connected to the computer may have adjsutable sound buttons that unless increased however would produce least sound. Observe an external speakers connected to the computer to see if volume bottons have be minimised.

Env2 vx9100 call volume soft


We have 3 ENV2's in our family. None of them have volume problem. The speaker phone is especially loud when used in indoor environment. It is so loud that I have to turn the volume way down when used with good quality ear set. You probably are right about the phone being defective.

Camera plays in fast forward-like speed


Though I don't know the details of your camera and the tape you are playing, one explanation could be that the tape was recorded in "extended play" EP rather than "standard play" SP. Some VCRs and some cameras are incapable of playing back in EP, a mode where the tape moves at half speed so you can record more on the same tape. The result is that the tape playing back at regular speed appears twice as fast and fast forward will be even faster.

Unfortunately, unless your machine can be manually set to play back in EP (usually it is automatic) the solution is to play it back in a machine that can handle EP.
