I can only hear static through the headphones on my Fostex MR16. The recording sounds fine when I transfer to computer, but I can't hear myself playing.

They make headphone amps that will take a line level and boost it in volume until it can drive headphones. I'd get one of those, and plug it into any available "line out" or "rec out" on the back of your Fostex. Sounds like the D/A converter section that feeds the headphone output has gone bad, and my solution will get you around that.

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

Replacement foam for Beyerdynamic DT 531 Consumer Headphones

I have the same problem with a pair of Fostex Headphones. I have taken them apart and I have removed the rubber type ring that the foam fits over.
I am going to order a cheap pair of thin foam Headphone ear covers from Ebay. (They are available in various sizes) and stick the foam to the ring and follow that
by sticking the ring back in. Should work if the foam is thin enough. What do you think?
