Question about Microsoft LifeChat™ LX-3000 Headset

1 Answer

The rubber casing of the wire in my headphones has came off slightly. How can I fix this? The headphones still work fine, however, im afraid that, with only partial cover, the headphones will overheat. I need to know how I can cover up the exposed wire without causing a fire hazard.

    Are you talking about one of the ends of the wire, that is, the one which connects to your computer or the one which is connected to the headphones, or just somewhere along the wire, between the ends?

    somewhere along the wire, not the ends.

Since it's somewhere between the ends of the wire, you can use a heat shrink. Here's a video explaining how to use it:

The left ear is louder and much clearer than the right ear


Tried the knife, made it 10% better but no wax to clean, bc a small rubber circle is under the net... 3 good hard plucks made mine work again. Don't be afraid to pluck it hard, I tried it before softer, which didn't work initially. Reassemble, twist it's neck counter clockwise (right ear) and pluck HARD.

Sound problem through headphone


Please give more details. If your laptop sounds fine without the headphones, and is only sounding bad through the headphones, there could be one of two problems. Most likely, your headphones have a faulty wire or wires, and are not transferring the audio signal to the earpieces. The less likely problem is that the headphone connector is faulty, in which case it will have to be replaced by a qualified technician.
Try the laptop with another pair of headphones and see how that works out.
Hope this helps.

I got these headphones and they were working perfectly but one day the right side just stopped working. even after plugging it into my ipod and laptop the right side still doesnt work. what should i do?


The wire carrying the signal to the right side has probably been damaged. You have to be careful with the wires and should not wind them up too tightly. Try seeing if you can get a sound by moving the wire close to the point where it enters the right earpiece. If you can, then it may be possible to resolder the broken connection to fix them otherwise, I'm afraid you'll have to get a new pair of headphones

It sounds like the wires around the jack have become frayed on the inside. If you were to open up the rubber casing around the wires, it would look exactly like that. This is normally caused by improperly wrapping the wires and by not being gentle when plugging them in and removing them. It could be caused by other things, such as electrical damage, but that is much more rare. If you have soldering experience and feel comfortable opening up the rubber casing and working on them, it's not too difficult. You would need to remove the bad portion of the wire and replace it. However, it is just as easy and cost-efficient to have them fixed at an audio repair shop. It should cost no more than $20. Hope this helps!

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.

The left side of my bose earphones is working perfectly but the right side just went completely dead is there any way to fix this?


in most cases this is a broken wire issue and it can not be fixed unless you know where the trouble is exactly ..The fix will be to locate the break ..and tide it back ..but if it is a fine wire piece you will not be able to do much ..

Headphones only work if it is in a certain direction


You can fix this with some soldering skill and a lot of tinkering. its not terribly hard but can damage your ipod or what ever your listening to if you do it incorrectly. On the flip side im looking for a pair of the ear buds with out a cord for a new life in a project. If you need more help or may be interested in working out something email me. n_raven99(at)hotmail.com

My right earphone won't play


Sound not coming out of one side of the headphone is an indication of connection failure, so that means you have to see where its 'broken' from, either inside the headphone on on the wire somewhere. Usually it happens at the jack, especially if you use an ipod as it tends to get moved alot in pockets, etc..

If this is the case, you could try to cut the wire from where you suspect its broken, and get a 3.5mm (or whatever the original size is) replacement (Do-it-yourself) jack from Radio shack or electronics store.

THen you would have to cut the wire, strip the the rubber coating off, and then if applicable, carefully strip the very thin layer of further insulation thats on the wire it self. Otherwise you would directly connect the cables to the prongs/connections located on the replacement jack. And depending on the jack you would screw it in place or soldier it with soldier and soldiering gun.

If its broken in the headphone or at the headphone, thats much harder to do as you would have to open the head/earphone case and soldier it that way and get it back together in one piece.

Next time don't buy bose headphones and by something cheaper, bose isn't that great, skullcandy is pretty good too. Sennheiser is the best though in my opinion. albieit its expensive too..
