Question about Yamaha YST-MSW10 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Y connector The stereo works on the headphones. And I gave you the wrong description -- it's the metla, band, metal, band and then metal that plugs into the back of the PC, 1/8" plug. I hpope I'm not confusing you. The two Y connectors are all metal. Thanks, Bill

    I'm using a Y plug because that's what the subwoofer has installed on its back side -- a left and a right for stereo. I'm running a 1/8" stereo plug from the PC to the two plug-in outlets on the back of the Yamaha speaker. Now we're back to where we started. No sound.

Ok the only issue i see causing the problem if stereo headphones work directly on the laptop is that you are running stereo to mono and maybe back again. it did occur to me as well... why are you using a Y plug.

Why do I only hear static


Hi Cathy.. it sounds like you might be connected to the wrong jacks instead of the output that the headphones need.

Most high quality stereo headphones have a single 1/4" stereo plug that would readily plug into a 1/4" jack on the front of the stereo labeled "PHONES" or HEADPHONES".

Many lower quality "computer headphones" or headsets have two 1/8" plugs. One is often black or red and is for an included microphone that may be a boom type (shown below) connected to one of the speakers or an "in-line" type built into the cord itself. The headphone speakers in the headset get their signal from the other plug - which is usually green; but could be any color really. There should be 3 metal parts on the stereo headphone plug. The tip, the middle ring and the bottom ring. Many times the mic is mono (not stereo) and only has only a tip and a bottom ring on the plug. You can see stereo headphone and microphone plugs he picture below:

Computer Headphones or "Headset" with mic and phone plugs.

Your Yamaha stereo will probably NOT have 1/8" jacks to directly plug the headphone into. You can buy an adapter that you would plug your headphones into and then plug the adapter into the 1/4" jack on the stereo. One is pictured below:

I hope this helps & good luck!

I receieved a pair of Koss SB145 headphones without the instruction manual. It has two connectors and I am clueless how to record things etc..


I suspect that you actually have the Koss multimedia headphone/microphone model SB/45 as shown on the right earcup, not SB145.

If this is the case, the 3.5mm connector with the black plastic (contains a headphone symbol molded into the plastic) and red insulation bands separating the conductors is for the stereo headphones. The other 3.5mm connector with the tan plastic (contains a microphone symbol molded into the plastic) and black insulation bands is for the microphone.

You need to plug these into the microphone input and headphone output connectors on your computer or whatever device you are recording with. Then adjust the microphone input audio level and headphone output audio level on your recording device. Consult your manual for your recording device to locate the correct connectors and for instructions to adjust the audio levels.

Also, be sure to check and adjust the volume level control on the headphone cord if you don't hear anything after correctly connecting them to your recording device and adjusting the levels.

My DT-770 headphones work when plugged into my computer, but when plugged into my Presonus Firewire Studio with 1/4" plug, only the left headphone works. Any ideas on how to fix this? I use them...


Make sure the 1/4" plug you are using is a TRS connector, which has 3 separate partitions on the terminal plug. This looks like the following connector:

If you are using a Stereo TRS connector with your headphones, and it is an adapter, make sure the input of the adapter is also stereo, and not a mono 1/8" to stereo 1/4" adapter.

Else, you may have a bad terminal or corroded/dirty terminal on your Firewire Studio.

My tascam us144mk2 works great only problem is my headphones only play in left ear i have a pair with 1/8" plug so i bought a 1/4" adapter and only have sound in one ear i've tried multiple...


Double check that the adapter you bought is designed for stereo. The easiest way to check this is count the number of metal bands you can see on the adapter, stereo headphones will have 3 metal bands separated by 2 plastic bands, whereas mono will have 2 metal bands separated by a plastic band.
If you accidentally bought a mono adapter, this will cause sound to only play in one ear.

I PLUGGED THE GUITAR INTO THE GUITAR INPUT AND PLUGGED ANOTHER JACK INTO THE SEND UNIT TO MY AMPLIFIER BUT CAN'T HEAR ANY SOUND EVEN THOUGH I GET A READING THAT SHOWS SOUND IS HAPPENING. THE OL LIGHT IS...


try this: plug a stereo headphone into send & check if you get something on one side of the headphones (should be left side) if yes check the cable you use, it's possible that a mono plug (as used for guitars) is disabling the send output, using a stereo plug & adaptors may work (especially if you get the sound in the right side of you headphones check also the manual you may find a description how to connect/insert a guitar effect when recording or live mix

My headphones won't work!


look at the headphone jack, if it has 3 band, it is a stereo jack. the computer is mono.
you need a 2 band jack.
if you look at the jack on the computer, you will see blue(left) and green (right). you canna try to use the green jack.
go to any electroic shop and get a stereo to mono converter.
