Question about Sony MDR-XB500 Extra Bass Headphone - Connectivity: Wired - Stereo - Over-the-head MDRXB500

1 Answer

I'm getting a high pitched, permanent whistle with my Sony MDR -XB500 headphones while plugged into my laptop.

Appears to be whenever plugged into any device, no visible damage, occasionally used at full volume but usually looked after. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: ear pad replacement instructions for Sony MDR-V6 Headphones

Hello to all who have exhausted all avenues seeking instructions on how to remove and replace Ear Pads on Sony MDR-V6 Headphones.... All that is required is a little patience maybe some fingernails... The Pads simply slip on and off by pinching ends of cuff that is nearest the plastic backing of The Headphones by pulling them from their seat/flange .. i found it easiest to just roll the cuff off using my thumb w/rolling motion away from the plastic backing/housing of the headphones.. no tools required.. they are installed exactally like one would place a tire on a rim.. exact same motion is required as when removing a tire.. i can give no better illustruction than comparrison to tire removal and replacement. Be careful to make sure one end in completely set deeply into one side before attempting to pull opposing side over its side/flange..start on top and work way around to bottom or vise versa.. To get an idea of what you are attempting to do take a close look at new headphone pad rear and you will see the small flap of leather on rear .. there is a small overlap that fits perfectly over the flange.. dont try to force it as you may tear them...

SOURCE: How to Rewire Sony MDR-7506 headphones

Okay, cut and strip the cord. There should be two copper wires and (on Sony headphones, at least) a red and a green strand. On a new 1/8" jack, there should be three connections. The middle one is left, and is where the green one goes. The short one on the side is right, and is where the red one goes. The long bit is the common, and is where the copper one goes. Before you solder, however, remember which strand is which, because you have to sand or burn off the colored enamel. (Use a fine grain paper, or use a standard lighter or stick match- anything else might damage or melt the wire)

There is a horrible echo whenever i try to record and then there's a loud noice that sounds like a very high-pitched whistle and i don't know what to do.


This type of audio feedback loop can happen on any mic if you are playing back audio at a loud volume on speakers that are close to the mic while the mic is on - which tends to happen on Skype calls. Try lowering your speaker volume or using headphones to hear the audio, then speak into mic, and the feedback should be reduced.

I'm hearing a high frequency electrical "whirring"


COuld be a grounding issue. Place a ground plug on your computer where it plugs into the wall outlet. You can get these at almost any store for about a $1.
Otherwise, you might try using a battery backup system.

We just bought a viore 19" class lcd and can't figure out how to hook up our new sony wireless MDR-RF925RK RF headphones so that one person can hear the tv and no one else can hear the sound.


After doing some searching for the TV you mentioned, it appears it doesn't have any outputs to plug the headphones. Website says it only has inputs. You would need a monitor or a fixed audio out for this to function as you wish. Sorry.

My screen is making a high pitch whistle. it is a sony vaio pcg-z1xsp.


If the high pitch sound comes from the bottom of the screen, then most likely the inverter is faulty.
you can get inverters from this WEB site.

Sony mdr-v700dj Headphones needs new cord! The cord was sliced in half in the middle. The headphones are practically brand new. Is there a way to replace the cord?


All you need to do is solder a new plug on to the end of the remains of the cable coming out of the headphones, then buy an extension lead. It will be much easier than replacing the entire lead, as getting into headphones is a very tricky thing to do.
