Question about Sennheiser HD 497 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

HD 497 cords that connect headphones to computer

My grandchildren accidently ripped out the cords that fit into the headset and ruined them. The headset is fine, I just need to know if these cords can be ordered and replaced, or do I need to replace the whole set?
Many thanks in advance for your help.

If you know how to solder wires then the cord is certainly replaceable. My cat chewed through the cord on my BeyerDynamic headphones, but I was able to order a replacement from them, take the earcups apart, remove the old leads and solder in the new cord lines.

You could try calling the customer service line for Sennheiser and see if they can send you a replacement, or you could just pick up a generic cord from Radio Shack or an electronic parts supplier.

Connect sony dr-tn200 bluetooth headset to samsung mx-h620 hifi


Bluetooth is a short-range (33 feet/10 meters) wireless technology that allows two Bluetooth-enabled devices to connect wirelessly and communicate between them. If your son's Samsung MX-H620 HIFI is not Bluetooth-enabled, the two devices will not be able to connect in any way. If the headset were corded (it is not because it is Bluetooth) you could plug its cord into the headphone (LINE/AUX IN) jack on the Samsung. if the Samsung system is not Bluetooth, the only option is to find a suitable Bluetooth adapter to make it Bluetooth-enabled. However, you can use the Sony headset to listen to music or make phone calls from Bluetooth-enabled devices that you own such as phone, tablet, iPod, iPad.

My Sennheiser HD 205 suddenly had a problem with its jack. You have to move its top, nearest to the cord, to get a sound on the other ear, probably it was pulled and something went loose. I spliced it open...


The two copper wires on your headphones are independent grounds for each channel. Twist them together and attach them to the ground cable ( black) of the new plug. The colored wires of the headphone correspond to the live wires of each channel, and the plug should have the same colors. Wiring together the grounds will not affect in any way the stereo separation, it is just that each ear needs its own ground. Cheaper headsets just transfer the ground from one ear to the other one through the metal headband.

I cant fit alot of music on my mp3 player


It all depends on how you ripped them to your computer. Are they all the same form, mp3, wna, acc... And the other part is how big are they? If you ripped the songs at 128kbs it is alot smaller than 256kbs. the 128kbs doesn't have as much info but with earbuds you really can't tell if you are missing anyhting. i can only get 497 songs on mine.

RCA wireless headphones


Hey, my rca whp141 is incredibly quiet. Go ahead and turn the volume up on the TV.
If that doesn't work make sure
  • The headphones and headset are on the same channel (like 1).
  • the transmitter is on and working (Power: GREEN LIGHT)
  • the headset is on and working (GREEN LIGHT)
  • the headset is receiving a signal (St: GREEN LIGHT).
Hope this helps.

Skull Candy Headphone problem


The wires can easily break inside the insulation without showing it outside. The good news I'm about 99% sure it isn't in the headset or at least one would work.

So, can you see any markings where it got caught in the door? If so I would cut the cable a couple of inches towards the headset from there and install a new plug . The plug is wired as follows: bare coppers both go to the contact that leads to the large sleeve on the plug. The other two wires each go to one ot the other two contacts. A little solder and you're on your way again.
