Unfortunately, the quality of Technics seems to be going down, and the issues seem to be going up. We are an authorized Technics service center, and we have more issues with these headphones then we know what to do with. We won't even work on these anymore, because they are so badly made. They break easily, and it's a **** shoot everytime you buy one. Some work good, others barely work.
Hopefully it is a 'burn in' issue, but I can tell you from experience, these are just crappy made headphones. I hate to say it, as I am a LONG TIME Technics fan - still am - which is why this hurts sooo much.
Take a look at SkullCandy headphones. Company includes a LIFETIME warranty with them, even if you break them! All the other DJ brands - SONY, PIONEER, STANTON, etc have the same issues as the Technics. They all break easily, and then you have to buy new ones, because these companies don't make the parts available, or they make their warranty's last for only 30 or 60 days. Sennheiser are also good, but their warranty is only for 90 days on headphones. I don't like the way SkullCandy's look - too 'bright' for me, but the quality is excellent. (Just wish they would make some simple headphones for DJs!)

There are a lot of "knock-off" versions of these headphones (they say Pioneer on them and everything) look on eBay, you'll see the difference in the pics. Make sure you only buy from an authorized dealer....

Also if mp3 files are cd files made smaller so they can fit in your mp3 player CD's have the best qaulity of sound so when its converted you lose some qaulity and the bit rate is lowered

seven4cthe intermittent reception is probably trouble with the transmitter board in the sending unit. SennheiserUSA can fix it reasonably and quickly. just contact them by email. great company.

If you don't hear any sound on your PC but on laptop, make sure to eject any output jack from your sound card and only connect headphone to proper output. Headphone doesn't work with desktop speakers cocurrently.

Guest, your issue is likely caused by a "switch" that will enable or disable the headphone jack. Check your volume settings and see if there is anything there to flip the switch. It may also be under a sound properties dialog

As for your headphones not working on the PC, make sure you are plugging them into the soundcard, not the CD player. Also, check the computer volume settings.

Or maybe your brother is listening from a better source. IE. you're using an onboard soundcard, and he's using a m-audio etc. try comparing them by running them on the exact same source.

The left speaker on my headphones always has a loud humming sound. What gives?

Sometimes you need to "burn in" your headphones. Used headphones usually produce a better sound than new ones. Simply let it play some music continuously. I usually burn in my headphones with some AM/FM static. After a while, the sound should improve. Good luck!

I have lost the charging cable for the cordless headphones.
Is there any sample of the jacks as i'm in the midst of searching the cable.
