I figured that that the earphones were pretty old, so if my 'repair' didn't work I would just replace them with new ones. There is a groove filled with acoustic foam that runs right around each earcup that terminates at the cord's entry point. After removing the headband yoke by carefully popping it out of each earcup I simply gripped both sides of the earcup and applied outward pressure until the front and back halves separated. Fortunately they are held together by plastic clips that snap apart. Once I had located the fault in the cable and repaired it the earcup halves easily snapped back into place. I now have a functioning set of headphones again!

Hi the wire has frayed and is exposed at the entry point into the earphones to My 5 Series Shure earphones. One earphone no longer works. Can this be rectified? Regards, Robert....


hi,you can fix it by opening the ear that is not working and check if the wire inside the earphone has not removed. If it has removed, you can use a soldering iron and a lead to fix it back.
But if the wire inside has not removed,that means the speaker inside is damaged and will need to be replaced.

In replacing the damaged speaker, you will need to go to any nearby repair store for replacement parts .

If you can not get a replacement speaker,you will have to get a new one.

And for the exposed wire,you can use a gum or a glue to cover it up...

Hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya.....

The cable on the headphone is broken, no music comes out anymore. Can I repair them / open the in ear headphones to resolder them ???


If the broken link is along the cable (not in the earphone) just cut the cable very close to the earphones and replace it with a new one (a stereo cable should contain at least 3 different wires inside). If the cable is broken inside the earphone itself, it is possible to solder it but because we are talking about a earphone it could be hard to open them and to closed them back in.

Product KOSS UR15C headhones. Problem: short in the cable which causes sound cutout when moved. Its right at the connection to the earphone. WHAT I NEED TO KNOW: How to take the earphone apart...


I'm afraid there's is no easy way of doing it, most headphones I have fixed needed force to get the pads of and for that matter to put them back on! It's just a case of taking great care and easing it off a bit at a time. If you encounter any foam that can be glued on afterwards with Bostik solvent free all purpose glue.

One of the earphones doesn't always work you have to jiggle the wire near in the input plug and it will go on and off in the left earphone what's wrong and if possible how do i fix it


The wire in the plug or near it has broken. You can fix it if you know how to use a soldering iron. You will need to purchase a jack plug from your electronic shop. Determine where the break is and cut the cable below it. You will need to strip the end of the cable to get to the wires. There will be at least two coloured wires and two earths. Next with a sharp knife open the plastic barrell of the old plug. This should tell you where the wires connect on your new one. If in doubt remember that the earths will go together on the long metal piece of a 3.5mm plug. The two coloured wires (left & right) will go on the smaller lugs. If you get them wrong reverse them, but it will not hurt anything if you do. If the sound is spaced out after you have done connecting. Then a earth wire(s) is off. Make certain the wires only connect with the lugs they are supposed to and the solder doesn't short anything.

I have the same problem with my UR30 which have not been used very much and this is the path I'm going to try. Good luck!

I purchased Koss earphones in November last year


Their limited lifetime warranty doesn't specify that original information needs to be sent in:

One earphone works


i had the same exact problem with mine. Reading around it seems to be a common problem with the Sansa line. I opened mine up and found that one of the solder points that holds the ear phone jack to the main board had come loose. I soldered it back and it works like a charm. Pretty easy too. If you have a soldering iron, just open it up and resolder the solder point that has broken off. You can read instructions for disassembly here: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/sandisk-sansa-c200-disassembled.php When you have it apart, looking at it from the side, with the jack to the right, the broken point should be the rear (closest to the circuitry) point. You will see a very small, not sure what to call it, chip on the board you have to solder a connection to. here is a diagram: http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e321/fuzzygoat/sansa-c200-disassembley-8.jpg Hope this helps.
