Sennheiser HD201 headphones. Left hand cable completely broken about 3" below earpiece, so only get sound from right hand side. Have tried connecting with connector block, which does not work. Would...

there will be 2 wires in different colors inside the cable,

these wires are enamel coated and sennheiser has best quality coating over the wires, so soldering this could be a bit messy - this is the procedure to do so

first take out these wire leads out for about a centimeter from both the ends, try to loosen the leads and yo will find small clustered strands of fiber wound between the leads try to remove those fibers (only the visible ones) completely from both the ends of the exposed leads.
take a blade and try to wipe out the enamel coatings from the wires (make sure that the 2 leads does not touch each other after removing the enamel) now connect (solder) both the ends of the wire with their respective leads (eg. red with red or green with green as applicable) now you should be good to go

Please understand this is a delicate job and require atmost attention use cello tapes wherever applicable and tie knots at correct places to avoid further damages

My Sennheiser HD 205 suddenly had a problem with its jack. You have to move its top, nearest to the cord, to get a sound on the other ear, probably it was pulled and something went loose. I spliced it open...

The two copper wires on your headphones are independent grounds for each channel. Twist them together and attach them to the ground cable ( black) of the new plug. The colored wires of the headphone correspond to the live wires of each channel, and the plug should have the same colors. Wiring together the grounds will not affect in any way the stereo separation, it is just that each ear needs its own ground. Cheaper headsets just transfer the ground from one ear to the other one through the metal headband.

I am trying to replace the jack on my PX100's. I have a replacement jack and have worked out which colour wires to connect to the various pins. Problem is resin cored solder suitable for other electronic...

See my tip on headphones jack/cable problems. Also sometimes they put on a special coating on the wires. You have to scrape the wire or file it to remove it. Spit is also good at making the solder stick!

My headphone jack has snapped off, can it be repaired?

Yes simply cutt the old one off and buy a new plug. Most hadphones are fitted with a 3.5mm jack. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

Replacement connector for Sennheiser PX 250 doesn't work...

The bare copper conductor wire is the screening/common earth to the two signal wires of green and red. The important connection is the copper wire which goes to the jack plug earth which is the section furthest from the tip. The other two are the left and right signal connections. If you get these the wrong way round you will just have to swap them over. Check if they are the right way round by using the balance control on your amplifier or whatever. Have you checked that the problem is not with the headphone amplifier within your equipment? Don't rely on OK sound from loudspeakers as the headphones may be fed from separate op-amp output chip. Try another pair of cheap and cheerful headphones to make sure.

Replacing headphone connector

The impedance or resistance of the two different sets of wires might be different. The higher the impedance the less signal. If your cable is long enough you are better off spending the five or so dollars for a new plug. Red is right, green or blue is left and copper is ground.( Usually) Unfortunately not all manufacturers agree. Also what could have happened is a short between the wires that you soldered.Make sure they are physically separated from each other and insulated.

Sennheiser rs-126 connection

Yes, you may. RCA connections are universal, just don't connect an input lead to an output jack: you might damage the jack.

Cahnging plug

The standard HD25SP cable's 1/4" jack screws over the mini-jack. There's no reason for you to do any soldering. If you have a few inches of cord left from where you cut the plug off you may want to re-splice the cable back together to their corresponding colours. Then unscrew the 1/4" ******** to reveal the mini-jack.
