SOURCE: My TR.140 headphones have broken

Those are nice sennheisers. Happy with them?

If you are out of warranty (they obviously broke at a QC defect point) then you may be out of luck. I am not aware of parts being available for the refurbishment of these products.

To fix it yourself, if you are handy with tools at all, you could get a thin strip of a pliable metal (the kind I see at my day job is used by ductwork installers) and fastening it to each 'half' across the top with glue and claps or with 4 or 6 tiny screws (that terminate into the headband padding). This is a 'low profile' fix that looks much better than a whole bunch of tape.

You might have another option if you bought them with a credit card: my visa covers anything I buy with a 'break-it-or-lose-it' replacement warranty on all consumer electronics for the life of the warranty of 1 or 2 years, I forget. This is a common benefit of many VISA cards, that just about everybody doesn't have a clue about. You may find it in the tiny print of your CC agreement, or just call VISA and ask them.

I hope those options help.

SOURCE: I have Sennheiser HD 570

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.

SOURCE: raven01@Hi, The left hand speaker has

No, Bose doesn't cover any damage done to products that is any fault of the buyer. You might be able to if you contact a Bose retailer and special order it through them. Just a note, it will cost you more for the new speaker due to it being a special order. Probably around the lines of 40-50% of the original sales price (which is outrageous). If I were in your shoes, I'd try to find the same unit on craigslist or Ebay.

Headset earpiece assembly has become detached from headband assembly. The post does not want to go back into the hole on the earpiece assembly bracket. What do I do?

The headband post can only be inserted into the earpiece when the earpiece has been sufficiently rotated. (Note that the hole and post are a 'D' shape, not round.) The installed ear cushion is preventing you from rotating the earpiece sufficiently.

Remove the ear cushion from the earpiece by carefully pulling it off so you do not damage the clips that hold it on or the gasket material between the cushion and the earpiece. There are six clips, three on each side.

Now you can rotate the earpiece into the position where the headband post can be inserted into the earpiece.

Carefully reinstall the ear cushion by pressing it onto the plastic clips. Note that it can only be installed one way with the internal plastic support towards the headband.

Broken headband

You can try to strip a little bit of the jacket off the wires and twist them together securely. Then use a little bit of electrical tape to wrap the bare wire. After, you can tape the head piece back together...... or you could buy some new headphones.

I have 2 sets of Sony MDR-RF970R Wireless Headphones. On set works O.K. The other loses contact with the base intermittantly. Sometimes it reconnects and other times when I operate the headband switch...

Are you using the rechargeable battery that was supplied or have you ever replaced it?

If you're still using the same rechargeable battery then it's probably worth trying a decent set of AAA alkaline batteries or other rechargeable batteries.

If this doesn't solve your problem then you're probably right in the fact that there's a fault or loose connection in the automatic headband switch. The only real repair solution would be to have a look at them yourself as taking them anywhere for repair wouldn't be cost effective.

My DR-BT21G headset has developed a fault: When charging, unless I fold the headband, the 'pink' charging light integrated into the right ear-piece does not light. My guess is that the wiring continuity in...

Most things these days are not meant to be repaired.
If you can get a replacement from Sony, that would be the way to go. Wires can be soldered. Printed circuit wires can be wired around. It would mean attaching wires externally or opening up the insulation and glueing it back. Not a good look, but it would function if you can do that kind of work.

I need a headband for my headset

The only place you will find replacement parts is from the manufacturer. That is a high end assembly go directly to HP check on price and availability. If it's a current model HP might be able to provide the parts.
Usually they won't be available because HP wants to sell you a new product to replace it with. Try for those parts anyway.

Complete silence on HDR 130 headset - probably in discharged state for some time, now charged for 48 hours

I had complete silence on an HDR 130 headset (no beeps, nothing), but I solved this problem using a solution posted on another thread. Unplug the base, take out the batteries and wait 30 seconds. Reconnect it all and listen. Mine started working immediately!
