If there is a short in your headphones and the cables need to be replaced it is better you get an expert to do it because usually the cables are very tiny therefore any little misadventure could damage the headset completely. You need to ensure that the right wires are procured to get the exact balance in sound production. Although i would advice that if you could afford it just purchase a new one. here are a couple of links to great deals

This is because after repairs the set can never produce excellent sounds as it used to.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Bass treble adjustments


I have the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300.

I'm not sure about before the update, but after the windows 8.1 update my audio was pretty bad and had no bass at all.

In Control Panel ---> Hardware and Sound I found "Realtek HD Audio Manager" which has a tab named "DTS"

Once I hit the Launch buton I was able to apply settings for headphones and external speakers including bass boost.

My audio is now much better.

Hope this helps.

Hello. With my HD205 headphones, in the left headphone it has a small crackling noise with certain songs.. I don't know if its meant to be like that? Its done it since I had them first - Happens to bass...


There are two likely causes for this. One is much, much easier to fix than the other.
1) You are turning up the volume too much. Headphones, especially non-top of the line headphones, are not meant to be listened to at very loud levels. In this case, the crackling you are hearing is the speaker trying to reproduce a bass sound that is "clipping", or exceeding the maximum output level for that system. Remember - headphone speakers are very small; they have a harder time producing low sounds accurately. The solution is to just turn them down a little.
2) Assuming problem 1 is not the problem, the other likely issue is that they came with some sort of mechanical defect built in. If you are not playing them loudly, but you are still getting a crackle, especially if it is only on one speaker, they probably are broken. It is probably the jack itself, or the wiring leading up to the earpieces. Either way, it is not a terribly hard fix if you have some electrical know-how, but if you don't, there are plenty of people who can rewire them for much cheaper than it would be to buy a new set. However, if this has been happening since you got them, I would call the manufacturer first and see if they will replace them. Sennheiser tends to pride themselves in the quality of their equipment, so I would not be surprised if they sent you a replacement set.
Hope this helps!

I have bought a pair of Shure SE210 headphones for my iphone but the sound is lacking all the low frequencies for most of the music or videos i try to play. The headphones work perfectly on any other...


No, there are no known issues. Typically a lack of bass response is due to a poor seal with the ear canal. The headphones use sealed ear canal is a resonant bass chamber. Thus, if there is not a good seal, the bass will be significantly lower.

Got the headphones jacked in. The problem is the speakers are 'on' at the same time and cant be shut off. Please help and thanks.


Your headphone jack's legs inside the jack are probably slightly sprung and still shorting to the speakers. Sometimes you can spray some compresses air into the jack to try to dislodge any lint, dust, etc. The only other thing you can try (without taking the computer apart) is to spray some electrical contact cleaner into the headphone jack, then work the headphone jack in and out a few times, hoping to clean the contacts inside. Other than those things, you will probably have to take the computer apart to replace the jack, or have it serviced. If you google the problem, you will find a lot of information about taking laptops apart.

Feedback overpowers amp output...I have fixed my guitars, fixed and replaced chords, tried other amps, tried other guitars, and nothing seems to fix the problem...If there a way to switch polarity on this...


Hi there. If there is still feedback with nothing plugged into the amp, the problem is internal to the amp. Probably worn input jack or intermittent connector internal. Try thumping on amp with nothing hooked up. (guitar)
Thanks

Toshiba A10 headphone jack problem


I think you are on the right track, if the headphone jack is worn and shorting out itll kill the speakers because it thinks headphones are plgged in, ebay would be a good start for parts, maybe even call toshiba and speak to their tech support.

Sound out of one speaker only


I think it's probably a damaged audio jack. If you're still in warranty, get it off to Apple. If not, you've got 3 choices;

1. Attempt to fix it yourself. I managed to get stereo again by opening the ipod up and inserting a staple in the bottom of the jack, to fit between the headphone and the ipod's audio input. This took some fiddling around, using tweezers, and will probably not last long if I take it out somewhere. I might attempt removing the audio jack and seeing if I can bend the metal connects for the right audio channel so they touch the headphone cable again. An alternative to this method would be to put some cardboard in the audio jack socket and adjusting it so that it brings the hardphones back into contact. Someone did this and posted the results on their blog, but I forgot the URL...

2. Buy a new audio jack and replace it yourself. There's an ipod repair wiki out there, and several of the replacement jack suppliers have detailed instructions. It's about 40 UK pounds for the replacement though....

3. Get someone to repair it. Expensive, about 60 quid, but perhaps worth it if you're scared of further damaging your precious beast.


Note though that there have also been issues with software updates and audio output, search the apple discussion boards for more details...
