Hi there . please help me as i love these headphones. the sound from one speaker died. by withdrawing the lead one step back the sound comes through both speakers but its not the same tone as before ,...
You're absolutely right, in case the earth cable (the common one from both headphones) is cut, the sound is mono and less bright than the original. You must locate the point of the cable with the problem, cut the cable at this point and connect it at a new headphones jack. In case you can't use a soldering tool for the connections, I suggest to use another cable with the headphones jack already connected, cut it about 20 cm from the jack and connect these leads at the leads you cut before. About the wiring the common rule is that the black cable goes to the grownd of the jack (it's the common cable) and the other two are for the two rest leads. In order to give more details post me back how you are going to handle it (with soldering tool or just cables) in order to give you more details and schematics. A good idea is to clarify the color of the existing cable leads and if possible the availability of a multimeter.
In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
Thanks and regards
