Question about Skull Candy 50/50 Headphones

Open Question

I hear this constant hissing sound on my 50/50 shoe blue skullcandy earplugs. It happens on my ipod touch and computer. It only happens when there is any sound available, like when I'm typing, listening to music, watching a video, or playing a game. The static hissing noise doesn't occur when I'm not doing anything on the ipod. Even when the volume is lowered all the way, I can still hear it. My earplugs are new, so I'm wondering what I should do to fix it. I really don't want the hissing sound to occur when I'm listening to music. Please help. Thanks!

SOURCE: Loose Wire, please help

You will have to buy a replace ment jack and solder the connections. These cords seem to have different colors between manufacturers but start by soldering the green or blue (left) to the tip of the plug, the next ring to the red(right) wire and the base to the copper(ground) wire. Try to get a plug with a metal shield that unscrews and make sure you thread the cable through the shield right way around( threads towards plug before you solder.

SOURCE: weird sound.

You will have to test the wiring from the plug to the speakers individually with a volt ohm meter. Wires this thickness break or go intermittent easily. Don't take them apart if they are still on warranty. Take them back to where you bought them and get replacements. Be sure to take the original packaging if you still have it and the sales receipt.

SOURCE: My skullcandy lowrider left headphone won't work on my iPod touch

Try messing with the plug a little. Otherwise the wires somewhere might be messed up. That happened to a pair of my earphones, some of the wires at the plug broke so I wasn't getting sound out of the left side.

My ipod will not turn on

This can be caused by many problems, it's a bit like saying my car won't start but here is a suggestion or two that might help.
your ipod might not have been used for a while, in which case the battery goes flat, big time.
I have repaired a few ipods in my time and what I do is plug a dead ipod into my computer and leave it connected for a while but make sure that the ipod does not get hot, slightly warm is ok.
while your battery is below an acceptable level the computer will not recognize you have connected your ipod.
give it about half an hour but keep an eye on the temperature of the ipod.
if you get a medium wave radio and tune it to a blank station and sit your ipod on top when you connect your ipod to the computer you should hear a continuous hissing, if you hear the hiss going on and off you might have a battery problem and it might need replacing.
if your ipod does start to come alive you will hear all kinds of sounds beeps whistles coming out of your radio just before the screen comes on telling you the battery is low and it is charging.

hope this helps

My Skullcandy Hesh headphones have messed up sound with my ipod

I would say that if they work fine with other devices then your input jack on your ipod is bad. First I would plug other headphones into your Ipod and see if the problem persists. If not the case then I would plug in your headphones into a known working device and wiggle the wire at the connection point to see if you can duplicate the problem. If this does happen then you need to replace the connector (1/8th inch stereo male plug) on your headphones.

I can only hear the music on my ipod when my earplugs are are plugged into it or when it is plugged into my ihome. Cant hear anything when its just by itself.

Turn off your iPod by pressing and holding the sleep/wake button on top (power button) until the red slider appears, then slide to power off, bring it up again by pressing and holding the power and home button together, let go of the buttons if the apple appears on the screen, this is a soft reset, turn off bluetooth if it's activated. Restoring your ipod with itunes will refresh and keeps your software updated and will isolate if it's a software or a hardware issue. Make sure to transfer purchases to your itunes library and back up your ipod touch data before restoring, if issue persist after restoring, consider a hardware repair. Hope this helps!

One earbud stopped working

what happens is inside the cord where you have your ear phones connecting to your ipod, there is a thin wire that can easily brake. it happens if u for example, rap your ear phones around your ipod. if your rap the chords to tight, the wire can break. it can even brake when you move the cord too much. such as spinning it, shaking it and such.
the wire that breaks connects to one side or both sides of your earphones, which produces the sound. if you can hear only on one side, the cord is damaged and cant be fixed.

i would go and buy new ear phones
i perfer skullcandy in-ear earphones because the wire is secrurly wrapped, and doesnt brake easily such as other producers. the skullcandy ear phones are in my mind are much better then other earphones. you actually feel like your in the room or at a live show.

Skullcandy earbuds one earbud not working

It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be. Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.
