I recently bought the Ifrogz earpollution cs40 headphones at walmart. I have been so far enjoying the headphones. However just days after I bought them, I found there was a problem in the jack. I think a...

It does sound as if the wire has been broken. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer to see if your product's damaged jack is covered under their warranty. They do have a limited warranty that covers defects in manufacturing and if this damage is something that just happened out of the blue and not from any other sort of activity that may have caused the issue, then you should be covered.

I have had my headsets for 3 years, they work well, I have just noticed that the left ear pad is detaching from the base. How do I get fixed?

The ear cushions are attached to the earcup with plastic tabs that snap into the plastic in the earcup. The lower snaps may be unfastened. Try pressing the ear cushion firmly to the earcup around the lower edge to refasten the snaps. Do not press in the middle of the ear cushion - you may damage the internal microphone.

If this fails, you will need to remove the ear cushion by pulling it off the earcup and inspect for broken plastic where the tabs are on the ear cushion or where the tabs attach to the earcup. If a tab is broken on the earcup, replacement earcups are available from Bose for $35 per pair.

If the plastic in the earcup is broken, you can try to repair it or you can contact Bose about getting it repaired or replaced.

No sound coming from left ear initially, now no sound at all.

Sorry, it's probably not fixable. The wires are either broken internally or have become detached from the solder fixings and the headphones are not designed to be repaired, nor are spare parts available.

The only exception is if the plug on the end is broken or has broken wires. Wiggle the wire at the plug end only whilst wearing the cans. If you get sound, then identify where the wire has broken and cut the plug off at that point. Strip the wires, correctly identify the left and right conductors and fit a replacement plug using soldered connections. Ensure that the screening sheath is correctly soldered to the casing (it's the earth connection for both conductors) and close the new plug casing.

In practice, it's fiddly, and only to be done if you're confident with a soldering iron. If not, just do as Philips intended and bin your old cans and buy new: it's not as if the SBCHP430/00 was an expensive model to start with.

The headphone just broke off...i was wondering if anyone would repair it...or what type of glue do I use?

You don't say which point it broke off. Which makes it harder to crack the problem. However looking at the picture shown here my bet would be the plastic "fork" like clips has snapped. The problem is they will get a lot of stress when you put them on and take them off your head. I have had many headphones with this problem and the two methods I will now tell you, I believe will only last a short while. First is to use a strong superglue. The next suggestion is to melt them together with a soldering iron. This will not look attractive but will hold for a while. As I have said these are not going to last a long time. They could be used till you have found a new set!
If you decide to melt them, please use eye protection and do it in a well ventilated room. The smoke will drift up to your eyes and will cause problems. You might need to find some kind of plastic to re-enforce it. Airfix plastic spurs or a pen top etc.
The only permant solution is to replace the case but keep the speakers. See my tip for further information on this idea. Click my name to find it.

Plastic connecting left headshell broke apart

If the tape holds it in place then I suggest a good brand of superglue might hold on for a time. The only other cause of action I can suggest is visiting a Pioneer service center and seeing if the part is still made.
If all else fails have a look at the bottom of my tip on repairing dodgy cables and plugs, there is a suggestion on what to do with a broken headshell.

The right wire came loose (i think) and the right headphone isn't working unless i fuss with the wire. is this fixable?

Depends where the break is in the cable, if middle to near the plug, you can cutt the cable and put a new plug on. But the closer you get to the headphones you will need a new cable and it will have to be fitted inside the shell.
If in the middle you can extend with an extension cable, after fitting a new plug. If you have to fit a whole new cable, to gain access take off the Ear Pad(s) and remove any foam, you should then see access screws.
If you don't know how to fit a new plug, let me know and I will explain.

Snapped at the top.. anyway of fixing it?

The person above has no idea what he is talking about. I've tried it all: Super glue, gorilla glue, all kinds of bonds but nothing works. The problem is that eveytime you use it the plastic is strained and it flexes to match the size of your head and it will give way where it is weak (i.e. the part where it snapped) My dad just melted the plastic with stove fire and smeared the liquified plastic with a heated screwdriver. It's been fine so far. But please do be careful. You might want to ask a person who is good with their hands to do this kind of job. Good luck.

I have the exact same problem

happened to me first time i bought them, but the ear was extended more so the break happened higher up on the extendor thing. I just taped it, and stuck it into the hole to stabalize it. About 3/4 of the life of my first skullcandys were spend broken. Then, somebody stole my backpack, took nothing out of it, and threw my skullcandys in the trash.
I sent in for a new pair, they've not broken for a much longer time but today, they have broken again. Because the break is much lower, the earpeice isnt held to my head and just dangles. Duct tape wont fix it so i'm gonna try hot glue. If that fails, i might sauter it.

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...
