Sennheiser HD600s - Loss of sound in left pan

I bought new cable and no change. Feels like its difficult to push cable connector pins in to pans too. Some sound when wiggled. What can I do - no longer under warranty?

I've discovered the solution to the problem, I think. What has probably happened is that while wearing the head phone you have probably caught the cable any number of times on door knobs, under your heal, or perhaps around the feet of a passing dog. The cable is very long and very strong — it's Kevlar reinforced.

All this jostling has tended to bend the pins and probably the sockets they plug into. Using a delicate pair of jewelers pliers, preferably smooth-jawed, gently bend the pins outward (maybe even inward) so that they once again make a firm contact in their sockets. It's worked for me pretty well so far.

The fact that some people get no improvement from cable replacement suggests that the problem is with the internal cable sockets. The solution is still the same. I notice after doing a tweek that the plugs feel tight again.

Sennheiser RS 126 left headphone -- no sound. Right headphone works OK.


HELLO I 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

Constant crackling/humming sound coming from both sides. Brand new product just installed a hour ago.


Poor connection to the source most likely.

See if seating or manipulating the connector affects it either way.

Next would be the cable itself. Again, manipulate it while listening.

Sennheiser HD201 headphones. Left hand cable completely broken about 3" below earpiece, so only get sound from right hand side. Have tried connecting with connector block, which does not work. Would...


there will be 2 wires in different colors inside the cable,

these wires are enamel coated and sennheiser has best quality coating over the wires, so soldering this could be a bit messy - this is the procedure to do so

first take out these wire leads out for about a centimeter from both the ends, try to loosen the leads and yo will find small clustered strands of fiber wound between the leads try to remove those fibers (only the visible ones) completely from both the ends of the exposed leads.
take a blade and try to wipe out the enamel coatings from the wires (make sure that the 2 leads does not touch each other after removing the enamel) now connect (solder) both the ends of the wire with their respective leads (eg. red with red or green with green as applicable) now you should be good to go

Please understand this is a delicate job and require atmost attention use cello tapes wherever applicable and tie knots at correct places to avoid further damages

They're very easy to open. You can pull the outer pads off by squeezing them at the bottom edge.
Inside, you can prize the speaker plate off the white plastic body with your fingers, and access the connectors if you need to.
The headphones all just clip back together.
Mine just stopped working in the right ear. I fixed them in about five minutes.

Replacing headphone connector


The impedance or resistance of the two different sets of wires might be different. The higher the impedance the less signal. If your cable is long enough you are better off spending the five or so dollars for a new plug. Red is right, green or blue is left and copper is ground.( Usually) Unfortunately not all manufacturers agree. Also what could have happened is a short between the wires that you soldered.Make sure they are physically separated from each other and insulated.

Cahnging plug


The standard HD25SP cable's 1/4" jack screws over the mini-jack. There's no reason for you to do any soldering. If you have a few inches of cord left from where you cut the plug off you may want to re-splice the cable back together to their corresponding colours. Then unscrew the 1/4" ******** to reveal the mini-jack.
