You can use a hand held meter to find out which is which. If you put one lead on the jack, and the other lead on the bare wire.

Phasing,The headphones sound as if they are phasing and only playing Hi end frequencies.


If they sound tinny or spaced out you could have a faulty earth connection on the wire or in the jack plug.
For a solution see my tip on replacing jacks and cables on headphones.

It only works on on ear.


You may a poor mating of the jack and the plug. This could be an issue of size and shape or a bit of dirt or something making it not seat properly in the radio. A damaged wire would be also be a suspect; your hand would give a bit of conductivity around a break.

First, I'd check the audio device paperwork for the specs on the jack and make sure you have the right plug and try cleaning any dirt off/out of the jack. Since the Bose headphones do not have a swappable cord (at least the ones I have don't), if you suspect a broken cord, check if your unit is under warranty. If the headphones are out of warranty, you could consider opening up the unit and soldering in a new cord.

I hope this helps.

My skull candy skullcrushers's audio jack fell out.


Simply cutt what is left of the old plug off and buy a new plug. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

Wire broke right next to headphone jack; any easy way to fix?


if you are not handy, then no.
repair will require disassembly of the ear piece, splicing of the wire, and reassembly.

Jack / Cord problem


yes basically if you look at the jack end you should see where the join is it may unsrew then look at the wires in side and the looose one should be seen if not yu can get a new jack from most online electronics Maplin -RS- or any electronics supplier you will need to resolder the wires onto the new connector..make sure you keep the other snipped off connector for reference when resoldering new.. There are a few tips to soldering.. maker sure the wire is twisted before soldering and touch the wire to the solder tip then bring teh solder wire to the wire to tin (melt solder) the end then do the same with other wires. once the wires are tinned bring to plate on teh connector and touch wire to connector and then solder tip to where wire and connector are.. if you keep teh soldering iron on the connection to long you may melt the plastic jack surround so I usually use a metal jack type.. if it has three wires one is for left one for right and one earth..copy the old jack wiring and you should be ok.. Good Luck A

Fixed broken headphones but sound quality has plummeted


 it sounds as if the wires are wired wrong . yes it is best to solder the wires.all jacks are the same,yours will be stereo i believe. is the braid attached to the earth point, the two other wires attach to the centre of the plug and the other terminal point. these are right and left.

My right earphone won't play


Sound not coming out of one side of the headphone is an indication of connection failure, so that means you have to see where its 'broken' from, either inside the headphone on on the wire somewhere. Usually it happens at the jack, especially if you use an ipod as it tends to get moved alot in pockets, etc..

If this is the case, you could try to cut the wire from where you suspect its broken, and get a 3.5mm (or whatever the original size is) replacement (Do-it-yourself) jack from Radio shack or electronics store.

THen you would have to cut the wire, strip the the rubber coating off, and then if applicable, carefully strip the very thin layer of further insulation thats on the wire it self. Otherwise you would directly connect the cables to the prongs/connections located on the replacement jack. And depending on the jack you would screw it in place or soldier it with soldier and soldiering gun.

If its broken in the headphone or at the headphone, thats much harder to do as you would have to open the head/earphone case and soldier it that way and get it back together in one piece.

Next time don't buy bose headphones and by something cheaper, bose isn't that great, skullcandy is pretty good too. Sennheiser is the best though in my opinion. albieit its expensive too..
