One of my earpieces has stopped functioning, why?

There are several causes for the everyday (yet absurdly nauseating) phenomenon. Usually, however, it is simply due to a loose wire which enable it to frequently be set by pushing the wire towards the radio earpiece and, if needs be, fixing it into place with a small electrical tape, super glue, or other adhesive.

Occasionally, if ever the headphones have an inline volume turn, that can be the source. That one is a bit difficult to mend, but you could possibly always try the ‘wire trick’ mentioned above and see if it works. If not, then open the volume wheel and re-solder the cables into place (be warned, this can invalidate most warranties, so if the ‘phones remain covered, just send ‘em back and find replacements).

Avoiding stuff like this occouring in the future, it is highly recommended to wrap your cables cautiously and avoiding stressing your headphones. No, I do not mean you should give Motorhead a rest and just play floaty, soothing New-Agey music on them, I mean you shouldn’t have them inside your back pocket if you sit down and you should detach them warily from your ears after use (this will sound obvious, and you’d be astounded how many people simply rip ‘em out).

Another thing to take care for could be the jack, if the cable is fraying/wearing around the jack, then that may also be a problem. Fortunately, like so many everything in life, a bit of electrical strip can really come in useful, just ensure that the copper wiring is tightly bound and it should go back to normal usage in no time.

From time to time, however, it is simply a sign that the earpieces are knackered and no amount of clever tinkering can fix them. Typically, in these cases, the issue is inside. This particular variant on the trouble also attacks earpieces of any price range, be they Poundland specials or your year old Sennheiser Eargasm headset. I am reminded of a Shakespeare quote from Hamlet, something about a king plus the guts of an beggar, but I can not be bothered to look the entire thing up right now. You get the point I’m trying to make though, everything dies eventually, no matter what it cost you.
