Question about JBL Reference 210 Earphones (Black) Headphones

1 Answer

Touchy Sound The sound to right earphone randomly cuts out and returns, though it always seems longer when its gone, there are no nicks, cuts, or major stress points on the cables. This happens when used with any device I've tried; laptop, iriver, and an ipod. These are less than 6 months old. Thanks.

Insignia Wireless headphones Model NS-WHP314 own for 1 1/2 years.Left earphone no longer transmits sound. Connected to a Samsung TV. When I tap on earphone, it will transmit for only a minute & stop.

Take it to a professional to get it looked at.It could be a lose wire on the battery but even the smallest mistake and you will destroy it completely

I can't get sound to come out of the right earphone

Hi. Try to check if it is properly connected to the sound source. If it is, check for the wires. Look for damaged parts especially near the ends. If all these look fine then the earphone speaker itself is defective and that means you need a new pair.

The sound is coming out perfectly in the right earphone but it is barely coming out in the left earphone

Then you need to adjust the earphones plug in, adjust it gently and it will sound right on both earphone. It is the plug that is causing the problem. Adjusting it will solve the problem for you.

Left earphone has lower volume than right

Maybe you can try adjusting the plug, or the wire within the left earphone is rusted, or change the sound effects on a computer.

Headphone problem

Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

Please try with another pair of earphones and see if it works :O)

If it works with the another earphones, then you have to check yours :

1.See if the cable and connectors are ok
2.Try to move the cable a little bit all the way (you can move it up and down)
3.Then be sure that it is inserted the whole way in, some times you can connect the earphone nearly in to the product, that means one of the right/left side will not play.
If is still not working please return here again

Hope it helps

Have a nice time over there

Please rate my answer

No sound coming out of right ear

Since these are just a month or so old, it is probably a warranty issue and should be able to resolved by the manufacturer - or in some cases by the store if they accept returns inside of the time you've own them.

If you no longer have the sales slip or are unable to provide documentation for warranty work, you might be able to make a repair your self if you can do some simple soldering. Locate to point on the cable where when disturbed, the sound cuts in and out. This is a likely point of a damaged or broken wire. Cut the cord just above the point of damage - closer to the ear buds. Use a meter or test light to determine which wire goes to which part of the old plug (you might have to cut the end of the cable a little shorter so that you are not trying to test through the broken wires). Buy a replacement plug that matches the original at a Radio Shack or similar type store and reconnect to match the original set up (as determined by the testing earlier) If it the ear bud cable is too short, you could purchase an extension cable that has a match plug on one end and jack on the other.

Of course you could always just cut the "bad part" of the cable out (an inch or two should probably do it) and reconnect and cover the wires in a method of your own choosing and be done, too.

Philips SHE9550 right earphone is louder

Your current solution to solve the difference in volume (the piece of paper) is not far from the problem.
Your problem is earwax. I have the same earphones and had the same trouble. I checked cable and plug but they were all fine. So then I checked for earwax. It didn't look like I had too much on the rubber plugs - removed that. The problem was what was on the nets. There was some visible, I tried my best to remove that with a sharp knife but the problem remained. I tried to remove some more and found that you can remove the nets easily with a sharp item - just pull them upwards.
There was quite some on the inside of the nets. I thoroughly scraped it all off with the same knife. There can very well be better ways to remove it but this worked perfectly for me.
When all was gone, I tried the earphones and was shocked at how much the volume had gone down in both ears (more in one) before the cleaning.
I hope this helps.
