Question about Philips (33-01-031) Headphones

1 Answer

Taking apart headphone cases

I have a pair of Philips SBC HP200 black headphones, which I have had for almost a year and am quite satisfied with the sound of. A little leaky perhaps, but broadly I'm pleased to wear them.
Some weeks ago in my bag the alice-band style piece that holds the speaker-parts to my head snapped in my bag, so I've removed it with the intention of attatching the speakers to a sweatbabd or similar and continuing to use them that way.
I'd like a mechanical connection to the band, rather than (or in addition to) a glue based one, so I think my best bet is to get the outermost section temporatially away from the headphones so as to drill through it and attatch some thick wires , a buckle or something else workable to them.
I don't know how to open the shells. They don't seem to unscrew, so I assume they were forced on, with a catching mechanism moulded into the plastic. I'm guessing some jummying will be involved, so if anyone would reccomend a way of doing do without damaging the headphones further I would be appreciative.

Re: Taking apart headphone cases

Carefully remove the padding/leather cover of the headphone and you will see that there are three screws there on the inside part of the casing. Unscrew them and the case will open. Do not try to force open the cases...

I have had the bose in-ear headphones for a year and they were great at first and then all of a sudden the left earpiece stops working. If I move the part that connects the headphones to the ipod then it...

If your headphones are in warranty (under a year old) Bose will repair or more likely replace them with a new pair. I am now on my forth pair or Bose in-ear headphones and experienced the same problem with an ear piece stop working. I have to say Bose customer service has been fantastic and has replaced each pair. Every new pair is then covered by a new full years warranty. Unfortunately my fourth pair has just gone wrong with the same connector problem. Bose again have said they will replace as they are in warranty. I have been told if they are out of warranty they will offer a new pair at a discount price of £50 instead of £80. However i think that if my new pair go wrong out of warranty i will have no option but to look at alternatives.A Pair of headphones that cost £80 should last more than a year!!!
