This is caused by microscopic wax build up in one ear. You'll probably have to send the earphones to Shure for replacement.

When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.

If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.

I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.


I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.

Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.

Tip

Taking Care of your Kid's Ears


Ears aren't very high maintenence but there some things you should know about ear care that will help ensure healthy, happy ears.

What's the story with earwax?
Do you need to clean it out or should you leave it alone? Alot of kids don't realize that earwax is really helpful as it is there to protect the ear.
In general ear wax doesn't need removing as it makes it's own way to the entrance of the ear and comes out by itself.
although ear buds are really popular, they are actually damaging to the ear as it pushes the wax deeper in and can damdage the ear drum.
So don't stick anything small in your kids' ears to clean out the wax. Let it just do it's own thing and come out when it's ready.
Is swimming a problem for ears?
Water and ears are generally ok but there is a condition called swimmer's ear. It's basically an infection in the outer ear that is caused by swimming water getting stuck in the ear canal.
Usually ear drops will help sort it out quickly. If you have a problem with persistant ear infections you can buy special ear plugs that help keep the water out while you're swimming.
Pierced Ears - Is there anything special that I need to do for them?
When you get your ears pierced you need to follow the instructions from the salon and not remove the earings for up to 6 weeks, otherwise the hole might close up.
Pierced ears can easily get infected, so use an alchohol rub if you start to see any redness or sores.
If it gets very badly infected you may need an anti biotic cream but don't panic, it's very common and should clear up quickly.
Be Well.

What is ear wax and do I need to get rid of it?


Ear wax always gets a really bad press but it's actually there to help the protect the ear. It's produced in the ear canal and then slowly makes its way to the opening. It should come out naturally by itself or with gentle daily washing. When you use ear buds you just push the wax deeper into the ear and ultimately that increases the risk of infection.

Should you clean out your ears with Q-Tips (cotton buds)? I always thought it was a good idea but someone told me you should just leave ears alone.


Although people like to use Q-tips to clean out their ear wax, they should just leave it alone as it's the ear's mechanism for self-cleaning. If you have a build up of wax you can see your doctor but otherwise you can just leave your ears to clean themselves.

I have lost sound in the left earpiece. Are they history?


i think i might have fixed the same problem i had with mine. I took off the gel cover thing and put a tack or saefty pin in the hole of the gray speaker cover. pull the cover out and clean all the ear wax off the speaker part. it works great now after i cleared the ear wax from the sound hole.

Sennheisser cx300 ear buds ..one channel has lost volume.


I have been having the same problem for the past week, I have just fixed it, reading your post gave me the idea to clean them and it actually worked

What i did was to "heat them up" with a hair dryer so that any wax from my ear that had gotten inside would "melt", then I cleaned them with alcohol and a q-tip and I made sure I let a bit of alcohol to get inside the ear bud, then I dryed it with the hair dryer again very carefully and tested to see the results and WHALA works just fine

Losing sound in my Shure ear buds, they are one year old.


the wire breaks after a while in ear buds ,and head phones due to the constant flexing,and moving.they probably need to be remade.by cutting out the bad part of the wire(usually close to the fitting)You can usually wiggle the wire and find where the breaks are that way.it can be a real pain re soldering ear buds.also check the plug end by wiggling the wire there.

My left earbuds on my JVC gummy earphones went out.


I have this problem all the time with my JVC earbuds. This may sound a little gross but it will work. I put the ear phone in my mouth and **** on the end of it pretty hard. What I have found is that sweat or even wax will plug the little hole and prevent the sound from coming out.

Sound very muffled in right ear bud


Yes, more than likely it is the wax build-up inside the screen of the earbuds. Take a tack and lightly pry the screen out. You will definitely see a noticeable amound of "gunk on the inside. Clean and you will hear a clearer and crisper sound. If you put the screens on flush and press them in they will stay.
