Shure in-ear phone

The wire connected to the jack that goes into the mp3 player has apparently gotten loose because the sound goes off and on depending how the wire is held. Can this be repaired.

I plugged the earphones in another mp3 player and they worked fine. So the interruption of sound must be in the connection between the Mp3 and earphone plug. So the earphone wiring gets a verdict of not guilty. I will do some experiments involving the female plug on the original mp3 player. That is where the problem is.

One of my ear phones is not working


Check the cable at both ends, at the connection to the headphones and the jack. Try jiggling it around a bit while you have music playing to see if you have a loose connection. If this is the problem a temporary fix is to tape the cable up in the position where the wires inside are connected.

14 month old Ultimate Ears 700s and the jack has turned faulty. I can wiggle it around to get both phones to work, but, once I remove my hand from the jack, the right phone goes out. Is this fixable? ...


It is for sure that the wires have come out of the jack connection. This normally happens as the wires are always moved around as your plug and change.
The easy way out for you is to approach any electronics service center who can easily splice off the wires and put in a NEW jack which must be soldered.
This job can be done if you are able to handle a soldering iron and get to solder the jack with the connection on either terminals- just any tech will guide you to do this very easily.

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.

No, there are no known issues. Typically a lack of bass response is due to a poor seal with the ear canal. The headphones use sealed ear canal is a resonant bass chamber. Thus, if there is not a good seal, the bass will be significantly lower.

Only one earphone works, weird problem


there is a broken solder joint where it is on the pc board.it is not the earbud itself,because when you pull it out,both sides work.the jack has 3 sections,the tip which is one side,the next piece,which is the other side,and the shank piece which is the ground.the ground connects to the outside ring of the headphone jack.there are 2 contact points inside for the two channels.what happens is the copper foil of the pc board fractures where the pins are soldered.scrape away some of the foil so that copper is exposed for the pins,and resolder it and it will work if you wiggle the jack,you will see the whole piece of circuit board move where it is cracked.after fixing it,put epoxy over the area to make it stronger.

The sound comes and goes from right part of headset


The left/right problem could be a bad connection on the red/white XBOX cables. Check to see that they're plugged in properly and not loose. You can also try plugging an MP3 player into the red/white jacks to see if the problem is with the headset or the XBOX. If it works ok with your MP3 player, then the headset is working fine.

You can get a new headset controller cable on our web site. Click on Replacement Parts in the left menu for the headset model you own (X1, X3, or X4).

I lost the sound on the right ear of my bose around-ear head phones and I checked the lines and nothing is cut, the left ear is working perfectly. Please help!


This may be your headphone jack (what you use to connect it to your ipod or speakers ect.). check the connection there, and if you see the wire became loose near it, that is most likely the problem. You can fix it! With a new headphone jack (available at the Source or Radioshack or other stores like that), and with some manual soldering (it's not too hard, I fixed my myself and I havn't soldered before.) you'll get those headphone to be as good as new. here are the steps to fix this problem.
1. cut your old headphone ******** and strip the wires. you should see two wires; one copper wire and one coloured wire (green or Red) on each cord. there is a total of 4 wires, two per cord.

2. Tin coat the wires. this means to burn the wires a bit (with the soldering iron) and put solder over them. this gets rid of the coating that is on the wires to stop them from shorting out in the cord and helps conductivity when soldering them onto your headphone jack.

3. there should be three holes on your new headphone jack. there should be two prongs left and right of the part you plug into the machine, and there should be one connected to the part that holds the wires once done.

4. connect the coloured wires (red and green) to the left and right prongs of the new jack and secure with solder. These are called the live (or hot) wires because they are the ones that send the signal that makes the sound.

5. connect both of the copper wires to the other hole and secure with solder. these wire are both ground wires, which are very important.

6. by the end, you should have connected four wires. two to the seperate prongs, and two to the third ground hole.

7. test your connection by trying to use your headphones. if it does not work (which may happen, don't get discouraged!) check your soldering. if it is touching any metal it shouldn't be, that means you have created a short circuit. simply burn off the solder (with the soldering iron) and try again.

8. keep trying until you get sound. good luck!

9. Once you get sound, you may want to secure the soldering job. you can either use two part epoxy and put this over your work, or you can tie a knot before you put the cover on you headphone jack. either will work just fine. Also, there sometimes are two metal protrusions that you can bend with plyers to help hold your chord in place.

10. enjoy your fixed, good as new headphones! Enoy hope this helped.

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.
