something that used to happen allot to my headphones and earbuds is that one of the ears (sides) would stop working!I found a quite simple solution that made my 1 year lasting earbuds into 3-4 year earbuds!on the connector end, wrap 1 inch of electrical tape around the wire (not on the metal though).that way it wont bend back and forth allot near the base.Hope this helps someone!
Headphones/earbuds are actually quite a bit more fragile then people think. Wrapping them up tightly and bending them excessively puts stress on the metal wire inside, and will eventually wear it down thin or break.
Two weeks doesn't really seem like a very long time, so they might have been defective from the factory. I would try returning them for an exchange.
Hope this helps! If it did, go ahead and rate me :)
They should come apart right where the metal meets the plastic, just below the buds themselves - be careful, one set like that I took apart were actually surface-mounted to the housing, there weren't any leads to repair...
It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be. Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.
