Replacing minijack


I use a multimeter to check the connections to the ear pieces. I set it to the diode function. The meter's test probes also have a very low dc voltage and this causes a 'click' sound in the working earpiece. Some earphones have 3 wires, others have 4 wires. In the 3-wire setup, one wire is the common wire. It goes to the ground connection of the mini plug. The 'click' sound on the left ear piece should go to the tip of the connector. The 'click' sound that you get on the right ear piece should be soldered to the 'ring' of the mini plug. The 4-wire type of earphone/ headphones cable usually have two wires that are the same colour. These are the ground or common connections for both right and left. I hope that this helps. A multimeter or vom is a necessity. Len.

Technically there are 3 wires needed for audio for the ears. Left, Right, and ground, Then you can add the microphone wires and they are audio and ground. The grounds can be combined. It is rare for the speakers to be disconnected inside the speaker housing. The most common place for the failure is in the cable. Especially at the connections that are stressed. Without a meter or a test light it would be hard to diagnose these.

I just recently got a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-ANC27 headphones and I've noticed that when I touch the detachable cable the sound shorts out and plays through one side of the headphones.


There is a wire in the detachable cable that is broken inside so might have to cut and rejoin the broken part.Thats why when you touch the detachable cable you happen to move the wire so sound is only transmitted to one ear phone only.

Thanks and good luck

My dog chewed on earphone and the sound is all crackly. Is it possible to get one fixed and what would it cost?


HI. If your dog chewed on the actual hardware and wire strands, this will not be repairable. The strands that carry the actual sound data stream have been compromised and separated from the main strand that runs through the ear piece. This type of trauma cannot be repaired, unfortunately. You will need to replace the entire ear piece set. I can understand that you want to repair and not replace, but this will be the only option in your case. You will need to replace the entire ear piece set or deal with that deteriorating sound quality.

I have turned the tv on and in the top right hand corner there is a symbol for earphones and i cant get the normal sound back on


yoiu likely have a sound output selection in you setup menu .. or in some sets they sense the fact that ear phones are plugged in (switch in the ear phone jack) .. and that automatically shuts off the main speakers .. sometimes the ear phone jack gets damaged and the set thinks there is always an earphone plugged in .. if thats the case then the jack would have to be replaced or repaired ... or you could for the time being, run a cable from the ear phone jack to an external amplified speaker (like a computer speaker .. that would get your sound back at least until repairs can be made ..

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.

Left cable came out of ear piece too


It is a very fiddly job and would need some very fine soldering even if you could open it without damage as it is very likely sealed !

Best option is to bite the bullet and get a new pair..

Preferably a different make !

I cant hear the gameplay in the right ear


Have you tried using your X1 with an iPod or MP3 player? Try that, and if you hear sound through both sides of the headset from the MP3 player, then the problem is in the "Stereo Splitter Cable", which can be replaced. But if you only hear sound out of the left ear from the MP3 player, then the headset is probably broken and you should contact Turtle Beach tech support at support@turtlebeach.com.

No sound from headphone


Worse case scenario is that your left speaker is gone but usually what happens is a break in the cable someplace.Are you using the 1/8" plug or are you using them with the 1/4" adapter. The 1/4" adapter might be worn out but is easily purchased and replaced.The cabling from the plug runs into the left can and from there splits into left and right speakers. There will be a wire that follows the head band under the cushion from left to right. With these headphones there is a swivel above the can and the problem might be in there. Half the problem is getting at the wiring to test it. Usually the plate that the speakers are mounted on is screwed to the back cup and the screws can be reached by removing the earpad. You will need a volt ohm meter to test the wiring. You can also test the speakers with it. Unfortunately most plugs on headphones are molded onto the cable so you will have to start by testing from the plug to the left can. Inside the left can will be a junction point where the main cable feeds the right speaker. Test up to there for right and left and if the connections are good then test the speaker. Hope this helps.
