How to take apart

My left headphone rarely works, the only time it might work is if the is tilted head set in a certain position, usually if i just tilt my head to the left the headphone will work to a certain extent. I do not know why this started happening. I took good care of the headphones, but one day this problem seemed to just randomly start. Could you tell me how to take apart the headset to try to repair the wires in side with out making the problem worse I have only had them 2 month and already a short in head set I am a women and have never tried this before but so tried of buying pair after pair thank you so much any info i would be grateful for
Have a great day

I figured out how to remove the headphone clip without causing cosmetic damage to the headphone casing. Unfortunately for me, this was after I had scratched up the casing already. Anyway, to avoid the cosmetic damage, use some kind of plastic tool, like a plastic spoon. After pulling off the headphone cushion, you will see the aforementioned 4 slots. Carefully slip the handle end of the spoon underneath one of the slots(not through them), and apply gentle pressure toward the center of the speaker. Do this for each of the 4 slots, and the tabs should easily come loose. Hope that helps.As for figuring out how to get the headphone to work, I'm waiting for that solution myself. The right headphone is out, but the left one works, none of the wires are loose, so the damage must be from my nephew being careless with the headset cable, and probably tugging on it once too often. Don't let your 15 year olds use your headsets, if they tend to be clumsy :)

On the side that has the wires going into it remove the Padded ear cushion. There is a Black Ring with 4 holes in it this is basically a clip you do have to pry a bit at it but it does come off and with some luck without snapping, luckily mine didnt. There are then 4 small screws exposed to dismantle. And thats it now all wires are exposed hope this helps.

I was facing this same issues around a week ago. Left speaker became inoperable, only periodicly playing sound. Just by that symptom I knew there was a short or a disconnect somewhere within the wires. I was just hoping that it wasn't somewhere in the plastic that the wires run. Here are the steps I to correct this flaw in my Logitech headset. (This will not work on the Logitech USB headset.) I removed the black padding that goes around the ear. This is pretty easy just needs a little bit of force. Dont be afraid to remove it. It is just a force clip, meaning it is just pressed between 2 pieces of plastic not fastened to any specific part. After the black padding is removed you will see a black ring with 4 screws. Remove the screws and pry the plastic ring off the silver headset. (I used an apple iPhone repair tool, but a simple guitar pick or thin credit card should be just fine.) After the black ring is removed you will have a series of wires paired by small solder sections in my case 2 soldered and 2 shrink wrapped. The problem lies within the 2 shrink wrapped pairs. They should be ("red and blue/green") I can tell these headphones were assembled in china or some other mass producing country because there is no care done with the shrink wrapping. Simply grab the black shrink wrap (black rubber sleeve) and pull it off. It should slide off rather easy. Once the shrink wrap has been removed from both pairs, check to make sure they are connected properly. (Note: These wires are extremely small and can not be stripped, they are dipped wires so if you need to remove some of the coating, take a common house lighter or match and wave it quickly over the wire. (PLEASE DON'T LET CHILDREN DO THIS. KEEP KIDS AND UNSUITABLE PEOPLE AWAY FROM LIGHTERS AND MATCHES ;) ) This method will crackle and pop the wire until the coating is gone. Twist the pair together. After both pairs are properly connected push the corresponding pairs (try each) onto the silver soder on the main speaker. (Listen to both speakers to test.) You should hear both speakers play loud and clear! Now you can tape the correct pair back to the soldered section of the headset (a small section maybe 3/16th of an inch was enough for me. May vary with each case.) Now your wires are correctly positioned. (BTW do not glue the wires to the soldered section as glue does not conduct electricity. Use electrical tape.) After everything is in place reassemble the headset plug in and BOOM! Better sound than the first day you bought them! I hope this helps someone! Have a great day and new year!

FIXED****
I had the same thing happen today, and I fixed it by taking it apart by the some of the tips on this page. After i got it open and apart, i plugged it in and starting testing to where the connection was being broken. It was right at the section where the headset and cord meet (there was actually a crease).
So I cut out a one inch section of that creased part of the cord. stripped the 2 ends (headset part/cord). I then matched up the wires (thin red, thin copper, thin blue, thick copper, thick white). After twisting the matching wires, i put a pin head of sodder on each connection and then wrapped a small piece of electrical tape over each one. (i tested it right here) I cut off the excess tape, fit all the new connections behind the speaker, screwed everything back together, put the pad over the black ring and viola! It works like new!
I love these headphones, this bummed me out, that it stopped working. But it totally made my day that I got them working again! Thanks for everyone input and I hope this help someone else!

SOURCE: Left headphone does not work properly

Hi,

Based on your post/description, it would seem that the cable of your head phone developed an open circuit somewhere. I would assume it is pretty near the headset itself. On most occasion, it is at the very entry point where the cable goes into the headset.

Normal repair would involve opening the side casing where the cable enters the headset, cutting the cable about 3 inches from entry point, strip exposing the three or 4 wires and reconnecting inside the stripped ends. Effectively what you have done is trim the cable a bit shorter eliminating hopefully the intermittent section.

Hope this be of help/idea, Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good l;uck and kind regards.

Left earphone just stopped working -


I just solved my problem. My left earphone wasn't working or would work some of the time with it cutting in and out depending on my head position or if I moved quickly. What I did follows:
1. Took ear pad off
2. Took black liner off of the inside of earphones. Glued on 2 spots.
3. Below the silver band of material is a clear plastic lining that covers the speaker.
4. I pressed that clear liner to see if it helped make the left earphone work and it did.
5. I had to fiddle with it to get it perfect but it worked for me.
I'm sure this would void any warranty and work on your own headphones at your own risk.

Unfortunately - that is a common problem with mp3 players - the headphone jack itself is damaged (check a 2nd set of headphones just to be sure). Philips does not sell the headphone jack by itself, so it looks like it's replacement time - I would call Philips and see how much it would cost to replace the whole player (won't be much more than 100$ even if out of warranty). If you wanted to try to work with the existing player, you could twist the headphones until you find a position where both sides work - then keep it in that place, and don't move around too much.

Bose in-ear headphones sounds cuts in and out


Well, here's a temporary fix until you guys can get new ones. Pull the plastic stopper about halfway up the phones. Then loop the bottom of the entire headphones through the circle that the plastic stoppers create. When you have a tiny loop, pull the upper stopper down and tighten it. People said that they needed to angle the cable in a certain way, right? Well, this fixed mine for now. Just keep it in that position until you can get a replacement or they come up with a permanent fix.

Ipod nano


have you checked the headphones on another device to see if they are broken cause if they are shorting it can drain your battery, secondly turn off that "clicker" that is used when you use the touch wheel. in the settings menu, and while you are there also look into the standby features and back light "lit" time. if this all fails restore the fact. setting. i am sure however you already tried to return it on warranty??!!

Opening Case for Repair, Defective Head Phone Port


I had the same problem with my SanDisk SDMX1 player. After you remove the battery you can slide down the two plastic endcaps of the MP3 player shell (one end has the headphones and microphone and the other end has the usb input). After you slide both of them off the player can be pulled apart into the two peices of the outer shell and the internal "guts." The spot to resolder was hard to get to with a conventional soldering iron. Since I didn't have one I just heated up a paper clip tip on the stove to red hot and pressed it to the area that needed soldering and rubbed on the solder. My MP3 player now works fine (I was amazed it worked) If you need more detail please ask.
