Like I said... Use the search tool! Plenty of photos and instructions on this already.

Can't wait to buy these on Black Friday/Cyber Monday (assuming they're on the $95 sale). Obviously the TF10s sound great albeit the terrible cable, but I'm planning on getting the UE 900s... use the vi/control-talk with the 900s and the regular UE 900 cable with the TF10s as back up (if it will have the same fit) smily_headphones1.gif

hi guys, I am new here, few days ago I tried to pull out the cable from the left heaphone and the socket connecting cable with headphone went off, even worse I have lost the socket, now I have one headphone as this one from my photo below,

 

Any idea if I can buy somewhere this socket/plug? any links? and how should I solder it? any assistance will be gratful, Logitech said it is out of warranty and cannot be covered:(

Wow, That looks nasty...

 

Why would that not be covered under warranty?

 

Thanks, Jim

Thats exactly what happened to mine. I didn't lose the socket, but there was just no way I could fix it due to how small everything is. You would need really good magnification IMHO. Even my soldering iron tip was too big to do a proper job.

I'm guessing 12 AM Eastern time (9 PM if you live in Cali like me) on 22, 23, or 26 (Thanksgiving/Cyber Monday) but I'm not entirely sure. I'd just camp out to be sure I don't miss it.

I think it would be very difficult to solder the socket back even If u could find the replacement socket unless u have excellent dexterity.smily_headphones1.gif U might risk messing up ur drivers. Best option would be to send them for customs. Just my 2 cents. smily_headphones1.gif
post #7406 of 9069

Yeah I was going to suggest reshell as well.

Last year Amazon released about 10-30 Black Friday deals every hour. They often gave hints for the upcoming items, but the actual product was hidden it's until the deal was opened.

 

1) Get on Amazon early on Friday and learn how the Black Friday deals system works

2) Watch for hints indicating an upcoming item could be a headphone

3) Keep an eye on the "The IEM/Portable Headphones Deal Alerts Thread"

 

Maybe any more Black Fridday questions / comments could be on the Deal Alerts thread (so as to not derail this TF10 Appreciation thread).

Thanks for the hint man :-)

I purchased a pair on ebay with that problem. It was a nightmare. Your options are re-shelling them or selling them off as individual pieces or looking for another earpiece.


A quick note when changing cables with TF10.

When you remove the cable, don't pull straight up on the connector with any force because you're weakening the socket and it will most likely came away from the earpiece.. Instead hold the earpiece on a table or flat surface with one hand then with the other slowly (with as little pressure possible) pull up on the socket while wiggling very lightly left and right so the pins can wiggle their way out. If it doesn't work straight away, try again after having a rest.

It doesn't matter how long this takes though the amount of force used is crucial. You should see the connector start to raise away from the socket. again.....still do not pull straight up. Keep wiggling with little upward pressure until it comes away from the socket. It's a more a slow delicate process than a quick yank and snap away from each other.

Going along with this tip; I find it best to pull gently until you have a big enough gap to fit a fine tip flat head screw driver(precision drivers) small enough to fit between the pins, then use a rolling back and forth motion to pull the pins from the sockets.  This will do both, pull the pins away from the housing, and push down on the housing socket end simultaneously. Hope this helps some of you.
