SOURCE: I have Sennheiser HD 570

That part isn't available from Sennheiser. But they are pretty maintainable, if you're good with mechanical things, and if you can come up with another set of the same headphones for parts.
If you've already replaced your headphones and want to rid yourself of the broken 570's, I'm looking for a set to scrounge for parts.

SOURCE: i've noticed that replacement inner

The ear padding is attached to and held in place by a plastic ring that fits into the speaker mount. Gently pull the ear padding outward so you can see the ring, then slip a flathead screwdriver or other object in (just a bit, you don't want to poke the speaker inside). Gently pry up , sliding your pry-bar along, and the pad should pop out quite easily.

SOURCE: Sennheiser Hd 205 headphones stopped working properly

the problem is the cable from one driver to the other suffers from fatigue due to the bending of the plastic frame as the headphone fits to your head, causing copper cables to disintegrate.

the solution is to take apart the headphones (mini and regular Phillips screwdriver ONLY required) and solder a new cable in. in my case i used a standard coaxial cable for replacement.

once you have split the end of the senheiser cable output from cup 1 into its two parts you need to attach it to the equivalent connections on cup 2 (which u also need to split, i suggest using a modeling knife)

the red wire is insulated with ceramic coating much the same way as an electromagnet winding, the other is standard copper. you must attach copper to copper red to red with YOUR OWN cable.

the most difficult part is removing the ceramic insulation coating on the red wire, which i removed with a blast from a cigarette lighter. simple.

problem is your cable probably will not fit in the slot designed for the previous cable so i drilled a small hole in the BACK of the cup (silver colored horse shoe shape) and ran the cable outside the plastic case. not pretty but it saved me £40 for 2 hours work, which is not bad.

i am a trained mechanical and electrical engineer so u can trust.

First thing is you need to have a signal going to the headphones for them to work.

If you are getting a signal the green light should be lit.

If only the red lamp is lit the headphones are not getting a signal.

If hooked into a television you should have them plugged into a Fixed Output not variable output..

If you only have a variable output then you must turn the speakers off on the television and then turn the volume up on the TV in order to send a signal to the headphones.

If you are using a amplifier make sure you are using the correct output. Tape Monitors generally will not work as this output is not amplified.

Lastly try using an rca to headphone adapter and plug them into a headphone jack.

My daughter bought new headphones in America two weeks ago but when she got home bad connection at jack making bad hearing sounds in one of the ears. When you play about with jack connection it improves...

Well, there are a few ways to solve this. The easy way would be either to call the manufacturer (At (860) 434-9190, more info here) and see if there is a warranty on the item. Second, you could just buy a new pair, which is probably not the best way. Third, you could actually splice a new jack onto the headphones with a little soldering skill. You'll need to: 1)Cut the ******** the end 2)Strip the wires off the jack (and the replacement jack) 3)Solder the wires together (Matching black to black, red to red, ground to ground, etc)
If you've never soldered before, see if you could get a friend to help. Here is a video tutorial of how to solder, if you wish to attempt this yourself.

Where exactly do you have to hold? If in the middle of wire somewhere, I have no idea what can be wrong. However, the problem is most likely in damaged wire or connection of it. Most likely its near the plug in part. If you know how to solder, just cut the wire few centimeters from damaged place. Best way to fix problems near plug is to cut it off and solder new one.

Sennheiser HD201 headphones. Left hand cable completely broken about 3" below earpiece, so only get sound from right hand side. Have tried connecting with connector block, which does not work. Would...

there will be 2 wires in different colors inside the cable,

these wires are enamel coated and sennheiser has best quality coating over the wires, so soldering this could be a bit messy - this is the procedure to do so

first take out these wire leads out for about a centimeter from both the ends, try to loosen the leads and yo will find small clustered strands of fiber wound between the leads try to remove those fibers (only the visible ones) completely from both the ends of the exposed leads.
take a blade and try to wipe out the enamel coatings from the wires (make sure that the 2 leads does not touch each other after removing the enamel) now connect (solder) both the ends of the wire with their respective leads (eg. red with red or green with green as applicable) now you should be good to go

Please understand this is a delicate job and require atmost attention use cello tapes wherever applicable and tie knots at correct places to avoid further damages

The fault is in the cable: you will have to dismantle the left speaker housing and start cutting from the cable until the break is removed then solder it back to the speaker - use an multimeter to check the continuity of the wires.

HD 497 cords that connect headphones to computer

If you know how to solder wires then the cord is certainly replaceable. My cat chewed through the cord on my BeyerDynamic headphones, but I was able to order a replacement from them, take the earcups apart, remove the old leads and solder in the new cord lines.

You could try calling the customer service line for Sennheiser and see if they can send you a replacement, or you could just pick up a generic cord from Radio Shack or an electronic parts supplier.
