Question about Sennheiser CX 300 Consumer Headphones

Open Question

Hey there, I have had my Sennheiser CX 300ii earphones for more than a year, and sound has been superb until today when the left earphone stopped playing music! I have had a read over some answers and many suggest to remove the mesh which might have earwax in them... i really doubt that is the case because it looks very clean, and i have a mate whose headphones i can clearly say had earwax in them... i tried pulling and pressing the left wife in the V shaped part that seperates the headphone into two. it produces the sound when doing this for a second and then stops! Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you! Jo

SOURCE: unable to listen to my wireless

They need a minimum level of signal to switch on the transmitter.
Verify if it works on yet another system.
Make sure you have the right output on your Samsung.
Try to increase the output level of your Samsung...(up the volume, but it may be a fixed output..)

SOURCE: only one earphone works

that means that the programing of your ipod is only on head phone or you did not insert the wire in correctly

SOURCE: Sennheiser Wireless Headphone Stops transmitting signal

I had the same problem when I plugged it into a new HDTV. The problem was that the sound on the TV was set too low. The transmitter has a feature that automatically turns off when the signal is off or too low. Try turning up the TV volume to a high/higher level and it should solve your problem. Using the headphone jack with the white input allows you to use the headphones while bypassing the TV speakers.

I inserted a drill bit that fits the exact size of the aperture and twisted it around a few turns and it is working better.

There's no sound coming out from left earphone

Try your headphones in a different audio device. If the problem persists than the headphones have a split in the wiring for the left earbud. If you are under warranty then Sennheiser will happily repair your headphones.

My earphones have stopped playing music. It just started in the left ear, now it doesnt play in either. Can this be fixed?

try using other headphones to your unit, if it plays, the problem is in the CX400 indeed. usually caused by unintentional yanking & other factors, the internal of the wires were broken, it can be fixed yes, with patience and some soldering skills, just find the appropriate cable for that particular model, with imagination you can even use other headphone cables, ;-)

It's likely the groud connection in the cable is broken. Possibly at the plug, it would mean no centre focus and no bass as the headphones get only out of phase sounds. I'm guessing you've tried them in another device - a faulty sockey would do the same.

My right earphone has stopped working but works when the volume control is held in a certain way any clues to what is wrong?

There is a break in the potentiometer ( volume controller) of the headset. Your carbon track or the contact sweeper is losing touch with the carbon track.
Replacement of the controller potentiometer is needed.

Sennheiser mm200 totally dead

Well I have had the same problem as well, twice really. The first one got replaced by Sennheiser, very good service. Unfortunately about a year later the same problem, I am waiting now what they will do with this. I really like the little earphones but I need them to work. Untill now I have had great service which of course comes with the quality of the name.
