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.

The Left speaker has stopped working and moving around the cable does not fix it, what can I do?


HELLO I ALSO HAVE HD238 AND I FIGURED WHY THE ONE SPEAKER PLAYS THATS BECAUSE THE COMPANY WANTS TO MAKE IT EASY TO BREAK-DAMAGE-DESTROYED
IF YOU OPEN THE ONE SPEAKER YOU WILL SEE THAT THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TO POLES IS WITH A HAIR OF A CABLE AND BY THAT WITH THE SIMPLEST DROP OF THE HEADPHONES CAN CUT.
NOW I AM TRYING TO PUT NEW WIRE "HAIR" BUT IT IS VERY DIFFICULT BECAUSE I WILL PROBABLY MELT THE PLASTIC OR DESTROY THE SPEAKER AN OPTION I PROPOSE IS TO STICK THE WIRE HAIR WITH GLUE

I am searching a sennheiser hd 238 spare cable but can't find it.... Any suggestions?


It appears that the 238 has a cable connected to one headphone only.
If this is the case, try your existing cable.
If both ends look identical and plug into your music player easily, you could try any audio cable with
3.5mm mini plugs on each end.

I have used such to drive low powered speakers, and discount the hype about audio cables.

If you look on eBay, entering "sennheiser hd cable", a number of sellers have cables, none specifically claimed to fit.
The cheapest among the first few entries advising the cable has a 3.5mm plug at one end and a 2.5 mm plug at the other. If my first suggestion is unworkable, this will probably work.

Alternatively you could try to find one locally, to test for fit before purchase.

Check the other sellers for a look at pictures and possibly details if I got it wrong at the start and your cable has 2 connectors at one end.

If all else fails, take your headphones to you local electronics supplier, get plugs that fit and get a good friend with a soldering iron to make you up a cable.

The right speaker of my sennheiser hd 435 is not working while the left one is working just fine. I checked the wires inside and found nothing amiss.


Hi, after checking the wire and no damaged,it means that the speaker itself is damaged.You can replace it if can get a spare around repair stores around you.


Thanks for using fixya...

I have Sennheiser HD 570 headphones. The plastic headband is broken where it attaches to the headphone. Can I order a new plastic headband and is difficult to replace?


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.
