Hi there thobe47!
Please test the pair with a different audio device and see if the problem goes away first!

Firstly, make sure you are pressing the plug all the way into your audio device jack. Most are designed with two tiers, so only one ear will sound if only one tier of the electrical connection is fully established. Once you've tried that, continue!

Most earbuds are created with very small working parts with equally small electrical connections. If you have lost sound in one side, the most likely cause is a loose connection somewhere.
If it still doesn't work, your options are sort of limited. I would recommend first gently "jimmying" the wire leading to the bad earbud around while it is in your ear and music is playing. If you manage to get the sound to be restored, wrap sticky tape tightly around the wire and the tapered part of the bottom of the earbud in an attempt to maintain the new connection. It is not a permanent fix but might buy you a bit of time with the pair.
If you can't get it to work in that way, your remaining options are pretty much to either open the earbud and attempt to reestablish the connection (difficult, small parts, and could damage the earbuds if you don't know what you are doing), or to buy a new pair. You can get some pretty nice earbuds for under $5 at most megastores, and anybody who could fix them and would charge you will charge you much more.

If you must try to open the earbud (I don't recommend it!), I have a generic set of steps here. I take no responsibility for damage of your earbuds or devices that may follow!
Gently peel back the gelly cover of the earbud, starting under the top seam and pulling it off.
Unscrew or "pop off" the portion of the earbud that has the small grating. There may be an inner retaining system involving more plastic rings. Just keep these safe and remember the order in which you took them apart.
You will now probably be seeing the speaker of the earbud, looking like what you might see on an uncovered subwoofer speaker (just much smaller!)
Being careful to not touch the flat portion of this disk and avoiding anything magnetic (including your laptop / desktop), see if you can pinch it by the sides and gently pull it out of the casing -- probably less than a quarter centimeter. If you can, look for any severed connections between the solder points on the bottom of the speaker and the wires coming from the bottom of the bud. Soldering these would be extremely difficult, but you can attempt to fix them with small pieces of tape.
Nestle the speaker back into the housing, replace any retaining disks in the correct order, screw/pop the outer clip back on, and slide the gelly back into place.


Hope this helps!

My samsung s4 has a problem when i call someone they can hear me but i cant hear them .i tried testing my ear piece by pressing *#0*# and tested its working fine. After testing it would work...


Do you have the correct type of ear buds for the Samsung? When I first got my Samsung phone I only had ear buds for the iPhone, but they are wired different than ear buds made for the Samsung. I went online and bought ear buds for the Samsung and now all is copacetic.

Try plugging in ear buds with a built in microphone and call someone to see if they hear you while you speak into the mic. If they can hear you then there must be a problem with the ear bud or head phone input. Some times the connector inside the female plug gets stuck and it fixes itself when you plug a jack into it then pull it out.

When you pull the wire up does it increase the right ear bud volume/ sound? If it does, then it means the right side ear bud has a short within the head phones circuit which is aka the wire that leads to the musical device in which the ear buds branch off from.

If the right side ear bud does not produce an increased volume for sound by picking the wire up or pulling it in towards you or to the left side of your body or musical device then it means that the right speaker is blown.

I know that all head phones come spiced together aka they are stuck together and have to be pulled apart in order to get both head phones seperated from each other so that they can be worn in the ears. If you pulled the wire apart to much or too quickly then that is what ruined the right head phone.


I suggest that regardless if the ear phones begin to work by pulling the wire up,side ways, or into towards your body that you return them back to the store since after awhile the problem will eventually continue to happen causing the right ear bud to completely blow. Once you return the ear phones be cautious with the new set when you seperate the ear buds from each other since they are very touchy and have to be handled with delicateness when seperation is taking place.

Please let me know how it works out for you. I have had many ear buds and I tell ya something; they are very easy to blow one side when seperating. I had to learn after a few pairs that I was ruining the speakers by the way I was seperating my wires. I kept thinking for the first 3 pairs that the store was selling blown ear buds until I began having same problems with another few stores so I said to myself "well the solution is to figure out what I am doing wrong in order to blow one side of my ear buds every time". After few seconds it was not that obvious that all I had to do for assembly was to pull the wires apart in order to get both ear buds to go into my ears.

I can't hear people but people can hear me


It could be a speaker issue. Try using you phone on speaker phone, or ear buds with with built in MIC or blue tooth headset. If it works with these options then its an issue with the speaker. If it doesnt work even with other options then its a more serious issue

When i put my ear monitors on i only hear on one side i bought a nother pair of ears but now when i sing the music in my ear cuts out?


You may have bought "noise cancelling" ear buds and those cancel out local noise... NOT the type you want for this application !!!

The wires to earbuds are really tender and easily damaged... Make sure the replacement earbuds are the right type for use with your wireless... if necessary, call the vendor to verify.

Sound very muffled in right ear bud


Yes, more than likely it is the wax build-up inside the screen of the earbuds. Take a tack and lightly pry the screen out. You will definitely see a noticeable amound of "gunk on the inside. Clean and you will hear a clearer and crisper sound. If you put the screens on flush and press them in they will stay.
