SOURCE: how to replace the male plug of my icon skull candy headphone.

there are 3 wires.A ground,usually a braid on the outside under the plastic covering and 2 other wires, one for left and one for right.the size of plug is a 1/8 phone jack.the wires are very thin and you have to make sure to trim just enough plastic to solder it on.too much peeled plastic will create a short,and you have to be good at soldering to do it.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: skull candy double agent headphones wont turn on

I had the same problem and realized that it was because the SD card must be formatted as FAT16 not FAT32 or NTFS.

How do I pair my smokin buds to a new device?


When you turn on your earbuds with the on switch you do so by holding the power switch down for a few seconds (4 ascending tones are heard) KEEP HOLDING THAT BABY DOWN for a few more seconds and you will hear a single tone, it's now on the look out for a NEW device and should be discoverable.

My dad just got me these new skull candy earphones ive had them for about a month and a half at night i wrap them up neatly when in my pocket i wrap them around my ipod and now i dont know why but the left...


This is very common with Skull Candy headphones as the jacks are very poorly made. I went through 4 pairs of them within 4 months. Unless you want to buy a new pair every month, buy a reliable brand (Sony, Panasonic, etc.). You can however get them replaced with the same product by visiting:

I just bought my smokin buds and it sounds like theres cracking or water in the right side of the earbuds


Do your old ones work ok?
If so take the new ones back and see if they can provide you with a pair that does not have the problem.

The left side wont play music but the right side will play it completely


hi there, I had skull candy earbuds in the past. The problem is that the left side has a short in the speaker. It means that you need to get a new pair of earbuds as they are not fixable.

My skullcandy earphones are busted


could be caused by the way you wrap them up the cords should never be wound tightly it causes a short and it just so happens that earphones are made of light weight wiring to make them seem to disapear when wearing them so what to do is instead of winding them when your done simply fold them loosely so to speak

Warranty


if they are broken from just use the warranty is void but if it just died out then u can cut one of the earbuds send it to skullcandy and they will send u a new pair i find my to work really well snowboarding when im by myself but when im with a group i find it hard to hear them but i also have a hearing problem so that might be that reason. and sometime if you get the skullcandy smoking buds they have a warranty for even if they break because of use they will give u a new pair for half price. if its a big headset cut the plug or just go to the skull candy website and go to support and check that out. link to the site. hopefully this helps you :D
