Re: No sound in right ear

I am online looking for a fix for the same problem.

The right ear goes out when i have the headphones set to the smallest head size.

When i open a little there is a spot when there is some statik then the right ear works... but goes out pretty easy.... thinking it is a loose wire on the connection to the speaker...

How do i get inside? I have unscrewed all the tiny screws on the frame... but i think i need to get into the drum area.

looking for a broken out diagram online...

Re: No sound in right ear

I had the same problem and noticed that after opening them, the wire connecting the right to the left was old, dry, and partially disconnected. Still trying figure out how to fix it because the wire is so thin.

Re: No sound in right ear

Check for a loose connection in the wire. Wiggle (carefully) the wire around both the headset where it sits on your heat. Also, check the other end (plug) to see if there are any shorts. If this simple "wiggle" test shows nothing, there may be a problem with the driver (speaker) in the right channel in your headphone.

Another thing to check and this should be obvious: make sure your balance on your stereo/receiver is set to be in the middle and not to the left.

Why no more sound in left side? the right side is fine. i moved the left side like a seesaw, then i found where the sound occur. is it the wire connection problem inside the left side? what to do?

Opened up one of the earcups and dont ask me how it was just by force. The cable that connects the 2.5 to the speaker is frail and there is quite a bit of shielded cable that can rub against each other over time. I fixed it by removing the cable and soldering in two separate cables of similar size.

I recently bought Ear Pollution over the head headphones and they just stopped working for no reason

It sounds like you have a break in the wires. They make the wires stranded and they are finer than hair but will break if bent back and forth enough or if pulled on hard enough

Only the right ear is getting sound on my brand new HD 428s. I've tried other audio programs and other headphones, and all work fine.

You have to trace the wiring inside of your headphone because probably there is an open wire or short wire inside of your headset.You need a multitester to determine where is exactly the troubled wire. Have a nice day!

My left ear headset does not work. the right one is fine and the battery is charged,

sounds as if you have a short in the left ear. solution would be to send in to manufacture. Or return to the store.

One of my headphones only makes noise when pressed on with force

Sounds like the conductive cable is about to go bye-bye.

My previous in-ear started to behave like this after about a year and a half of use.At first,if I pressed or moved its body around may solved it.But about a week later,the right ear went completely silent regardless how I fussed on it.

If the symptom gets worse and worse as time goes by,you'd better look for the new earphones.

Headphones only work if it is in a certain direction

You can fix this with some soldering skill and a lot of tinkering. its not terribly hard but can damage your ipod or what ever your listening to if you do it incorrectly. On the flip side im looking for a pair of the ear buds with out a cord for a new life in a project. If you need more help or may be interested in working out something email me. n_raven99(at)

Bad connection

It sounds like you have two problems. One is your ipod earphone plug ( phono plug ) needs replacing, and # two is your headphone plug needs replacing.
