Question about Sony MDR-NC6 Consumer Headphones
The audio in the right speaker has died. The noise cancelling still works on both speakers. There is no visible wire stress, breaking or otherwise, and the casing appears all intact. Any ideas?
Sony's repair charge is equal to getting a refurbished pair. I could probably take it apart if that is suggested.
In the off chance someone (like me) was hoping to resurrect their set of MDR-NC6 headphones, I'm going to echo what slon_vitaliy discovered in his/her solution - the right speaker died. Unlike some of the other posters here who said they had no sound but they did have noise cancellation, I had neither. I disassembled the right cup and started testing the wire connections. All were fine. I finally narrowed it down to the speaker wires and then the speaker itself. Like slon_vitaliy, I ran a second spare speaker in parallel with it. The second speaker started playing music.
I also have no idea where to get a replacement speaker. Time to treat myself to some new headphones...

I think I have it. I've only had a chance to listen to a couple of songs till the brand new headset's right ear died. I took it apart and found that when I hook up another speaker in parallel with the dead one, it works, which can only mean that the circuit is fine and the 'dead' speaker is really dead. No idea where to get a replacement though.

Take Apart at left Headphone can and resolder new wire. Find a double guage .24 wire complete with jack of choice and feed wire through aperture. Write down where remnant wires are, what color are,Solder new lead on, test close up can as you opened and ready.

I developed the same problem after 3 years of use. I took the thing apart and checked the continuity of all internal cables. In my case, I had no audio from the right cup, but could hear the white noise whtn I turned the NR on with no audio source connected. Here what I found.
The 4 conductor wire which goes from LEFT to the RIGHT cup is very flimsy. Usually the black wire or the green wire takes a lot of stess and breaks (where the cup slides in the headband). There is unfortunately no simple way to fix it. You have to take the whole thing apart, de-solder the cable, find a replacement cable (difficult) and re-solder all 4 (red, green, black, ground). I plan to drilling a small hole to run a diffrent cable to fix my problem,
