Yes I suppose you could fix it yourself, but I do recommend getting a original replacement for it.

The microphone is very simple device, there are 2 maybe 3 cables that you need to wire and connect to the connector in the right spots. You would need to test the old cable to see which wire connects to what.

    I had a look at the microphone and it has 2 wires inside the cable,



    Ground and signal.



    This is a very easy fix really..

    Rewire the two wires inside the cable and connect the two cables to the plug, thats it.

    when I was 7 my father had me down in the garage with him fixing hes cars. I could probably have fixed your mic back when I was 7 so really this is very easy. the type of wire you use may effect the quality, maybe ask a local shop for a professional opinion on what wire to use on it.

  • Ekse Jul 18, 2008

    if this is your mic






    I can see the connector has 2 wires inside judging from the connector head. if the old connector is broken, get some good quality wire and a good plug for it from a local shop, you can fix it yourself.

My sennhauser 110 only work on left speaker ,nothing ,no sound on right?????headphones


The first thing to do is to disconnect the Sennheiser wireless unit and try another headphone, preferably a cable type and see if both channels work. If the sound is OK on both channels, the fault is within the headphones. If you are lucky it will be the wireless unit plug or the cable and can easily be tested and repaired by somebody familiar with electronics. Otherwise you will probably need to have it repaired by a service shop or a technician. I hope the guarantee is stilll valid.

You can reuse the oring from the old cylinder. Easy to install. The cylinder will break when the driver bends or breaks. If the driver looks good, dont worry about anything. Remove nails. Slip the driver into the cylinder and push driver and cylinder into body of the gun. Replace head.

Hi, Ian, If you have soldering experience, you might be able to replace it by yourself. If you remove the portion of the wire that is frayed and replace it with new wiring, it might work. If you feel comfortable doing this, I would say go ahead. However, it might be just as cost-effective to take it to a local audio-repair shop and have them do it. I have had multiple sets rewired myself, and it has cost less than $20 each time. Either way, it should be a relatively easy and cheap fix.

Transmission distance problem on Sennheiser G2 wireless


I regularly use G2 ew100+300 systems, which have a manual squelch adjustment on the reciever. Squelch is difficult to explain but here we go: a squelch adjustment gives you the options LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH these settings effect transmission distance and interference rejection. for example: a HIGH squelch is less prone to interference but has a shorter transmittion distance. A LOW squelch is more prone to interferance but allows for a longer transmission distance. For most applications, a MID squelch is fine. If this does not help- the next option would be to swap arials between units and see if the problem moves. The G2 series are a 30mw transmittion which has an effective range of about 50m
hope this helps.

Sockets of sennheiser hd600 broken


I've discovered the solution to the problem, I think. What has probably happened is that while wearing the head phone you have probably caught the cable any number of times on door knobs, under your heal, or perhaps around the feet of a passing dog. The cable is very long and very strong — it's Kevlar reinforced.

All this jostling has tended to bend the pins and probably the sockets they plug into. Using a delicate pair of jewelers pliers, preferably smooth-jawed, gently bend the pins outward (maybe even inward) so that they once again make a firm contact in their sockets. It's worked for me pretty well so far.

The fact that some people get no improvement from cable replacement suggests that the problem is with the internal cable sockets. The solution is still the same. I notice after doing a tweek that the plugs feel tight again.
