Question about JBL J33i Premium In-Ear Heaphones with Microphone White

2 Answers

The cord that goes into the right earbud is broken. But the problem with fixing it is that the break is right by the earbud where the cord goes through the metal piece.

I know exactly where the break is, it's just that putting electric tape when I'm done fixing it wouldn't work because of the location. So I am curious if there is any other way.

Well. to fix this you are going to have to cut the wire, slip on a piece of shrinkwrap tubing the same color, Then solder the two ends back together and then heat the shinkwrap to insulate and protect the repair. This is an unlikely repair unless you are really good at this type of thing and have the tools or really broke. Why broke? New pairs of these earbuds sell on ebay for $20. (I checked.) This would take some real dexterity and some specialized tools and probably 30 minutes of fidgeting to try and get it right. I would just get a new pair and forget about the broken pair. Your call...

Ear bud is glued so it can be cracked open with a razor but be careful ouch... the wires in headphones are hair thin so you have to be careful as there are 3-5 wires that have to be seperated then soldered..difficult. If its less than 1 year and major brand most are warranteed for a year call the manufacturer and ask.. But yes if you are good with solder then you can fix

My right side earbud stop working and it's a lg tech hbs 770


Only one earbud working means, most often, the thin cable that lead to right side earbud is broken inside.

Why i have to wiggle the headphone jack to get sound


Two possibilities:
1) either the earbud plug has a loose connection, or
2) a soldier joint in the player itself is cracked.

Have you tried different earbuds? If that fixes the problem, then yea!

If new earbuds don't fix the problem, the it's likely a cracked soldier joint. Cracked joints are easy to repair, IF you have the right soldiering iron and are a careful working who enjoys learning new skills.

Good luck.

Is there a way to fix my earbuds when only one side works, but when i move around the wire both sides work. Or do I need to get new earbuds?


This happens because on of the wires inside the cable that goes to the faulty earbud is broken so it makes contact just by accident. This is unfixable, you need new ones.

How do I fix skullcandy earphones? I think a wire is lose because the sound comes in and out when you move the earphone. How do you open the earphones up to fix the wires? Thank you for you time


I'm sorry to bring you bad news, but the most likely thing is that the copper conductor has become fractured inside the wire. The best you can do is to carefully identify which end of the wire has become broken (it usually happens at an end, where it goes in to an earbud, or a plug) and cut it back to the break, and then pry open the bud, cut back the insulation and re-solder the conductors. This is a pretty involved process, and to be honest, even with all the tools, I wouldn't attempt this. Oh, and plugs are usually moulded, so you can't do it, but if you try to buy a new plug in a store it will cost almost as much as new earbuds.

Audio is not coming out of the right earbud


Try this set on another player to be sure, but if this is the symptom you have a blown speaker or a broken wire in the cord somewhere. Replace as necessary

No sound coming out of right ear


Since these are just a month or so old, it is probably a warranty issue and should be able to resolved by the manufacturer - or in some cases by the store if they accept returns inside of the time you've own them.

If you no longer have the sales slip or are unable to provide documentation for warranty work, you might be able to make a repair your self if you can do some simple soldering. Locate to point on the cable where when disturbed, the sound cuts in and out. This is a likely point of a damaged or broken wire. Cut the cord just above the point of damage - closer to the ear buds. Use a meter or test light to determine which wire goes to which part of the old plug (you might have to cut the end of the cable a little shorter so that you are not trying to test through the broken wires). Buy a replacement plug that matches the original at a Radio Shack or similar type store and reconnect to match the original set up (as determined by the testing earlier) If it the ear bud cable is too short, you could purchase an extension cable that has a match plug on one end and jack on the other.

Of course you could always just cut the "bad part" of the cable out (an inch or two should probably do it) and reconnect and cover the wires in a method of your own choosing and be done, too.

Skullcandy earbuds one earbud not working


It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be. Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.
