Re: Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker

It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

What You Can Do:

1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

Good Luck,

- Jim

Re: Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker

OK, you will need super glue:

Bend the wire next to the stiffener wire thing need the headset, once you bend it against it, test the sound, if the sound returns, super glue it to the position it is at

realtech hd is your sound device. go into windows control panel and access the sound settings then navigate to voice settings click the volume button,your mic might be muted. also if you want the headphones to work plug them into the plug that your speakers are using (side-note: mics and head phones never need something installed to work as long as your sound device works and your definitely does work,only when the mic is a special interface like USB do you need to install software and/or drivers)

Cant get the pulsar 590 works with windows 7

I finally solved this problem. Buy a CSR v4.0 enabled bluetooth dongle on ebay, plug it in to a usb slot. Right click the bluetooth icon in system tray and select "Settings" and tick "Allow bluetooth devices to find this computer." Then click "add a device", turn on your bluetooth headphones and the headphones will show up in bluetooth devices. Add the device, then right click your speaker icon in the system tray, select playback devices. From the menu, select the headphones and set them as default. I did this and they work perfectly. Furthermore when I turn the headphones off, the sound goes back to normal speakers - no other adjustments made. Turn the headphones on again and the sound defaults to them. I noticed on an earlier failed install of the headphones when they did appear in Devices and Printers that the drivers were CSR something enabled. I did try some cheaper dongles and the actual Plantronics USB dongle(expensive) to no avail. Get a CSR 4.0 enabled device. Mine cost 6.00AU total.a199a342-df05-4c7a-89f7-c82a948f31c9.jpg

I do not have any volume in the headphones i dont know how to turn them on or something please help me on how i can hear stuff like youtube videos or something.

Did they ever work or are you trying them on a new computer? They don't need switching on you just plug the plug into the audio out of your sound card or motherboard, make sure the mute button isn't selected on the inline remote. Play an mp3 on your computer, make sure the volume on your computer is turned up, plug in another known working set of headphones or active speakers make sure you can hear the music, then plug out those speakers and then plug in the headphones. Do they work when you try that?

Simultaneous audio through headset and regular speakers?

This is not possible with Windows. You would need to purchase a mixer program of some sort. The USB headset is seen by the Operating System as a stand alone sound card. Windows will not mix two sound cards.

Hooking up wireless headphones into the tv

u have to split the signal by having both the tv and the headphones getting the input,as you're probably only have the audio cables going to the headphones.You need an audio splitting cable (it has 4 malle connections) so you can put 2 in the tv and 2 in the headphone base.

You use headsets to have conversations over the internet .. or to have a personalised audio equipment,.
You should have used the mic to start with, as you heard over the speaker your voice,

There are two pins. One for MIc and other for the headphones.
Use mic only when recording. other times keep it muted in control panel-> sound and audio...

you can use headphone for hearing when you don want the audio stream to be on speakers., TO use so, you have to take of the output from the CPU to the headphone pin after removing the speaker pin or configuring the audio controls control panel-> sound effect manager to have sound always in both theh speakers and headphones.

This requires you to have an appropriate configuration so that all 3 pins are aptly placed fot output from the CPU.
Hope you got what you asked for!

Hi There Try this, VOLUME Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one. CLEANING Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion. If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement.
