A little known fact among many people is that nearly every part of your headphones can be replaced. More importantly, replacing parts as they wear out is a great way
to save tons of money. Headphone replacement parts are far cheaper than buying an entire brand new set of headphones. This is especially true because, in most cases, when you are having problems with your headphones,
it is simply one part that has worn out or broken while the rest of your headphones are still functioning just fine.
The cable is the piece that runs from the jack to the headphones themselves. It is a collection of wires coated in rubber
or another non-conducting material. Its job is to carry the electrical signal from your device to your speakers.
Due to its length and flexibility, it is highly prone to breakage. The more the wires inside are twisted or bent, the more likely they are to fray or splinter. This fraying and breakage will interrupt the electrical signal. The most frequent problem caused by a frayed or broken cable is hearing sound come out of only one side. Proper storage of your cable can go a long way toward preventing this fraying and breakage. When the cable does start to lose its integrity, you should replace it before it significantly impacts the sound quality. Replacing the cable is not the simplest project so it may be preferable to have this done professionally. However, if you are pretty handy with a soldering iron and other tools, you can probably just buy the part and replace it yourself
is the small hard piece
at the end of your cable that connects to the device you are listening cuto music from. It is responsible for picking up the electrical signal from your device and sending it on up the wires in your cable. In essence, it is completing the circuit between the hardware in your device and the hardware in your headphones.
It is pretty sturdy but can bend or break with rough usage. The most common problem, however, is frayed or broken wires right at the point where the jack meets the cable. While you could just get a full cable replacement that comes with a new jack already attached, you also have the option of just replacing the jack. This process is about the same level of difficulty as replacing the cable (aka, moderate but definitely not impossible). So if you are comfortable using a soldering iron, pliers, wire cutters, and so on, a wraps around the speaker box
. They provide comfort
, grip, and noise isolation. High quality ear cushions
are made with quality materials like memory foam
and protein leather coating.
But even the best headphone ear cushions will wear down eventually. The leather will start to crack, the foam will start to go flat, the buildup of sweat and dirt will turn it into a moldy haven for bacteria. So it’s important to look for quality replacement headphone pads. Luckily, headphone replacement pads are very affordable and very easy to install yourself. Putting on a new set of replacement ear cushions can often be done without any tools in less than 10 minutes!
The speakers are found inside the headphones behind the ear covers. They are responsible for translating that electrical signal travelling up the cable into crisp, clear and enjoyable sound.
This is still true even if you choose to have a professional do the replacement work (which is recommended for more complicated replacements like speakers). Paying for the part and the labor is STILL cheaper than buying a whole new headset And headset replacement parts are worth every penny because it will add years to the life of your high end headphones while making sure that they perform at optimal levels the entire time!
