:( Sorry to hear about your audio inconvenience during the holidays. I'd contact either the vendor (even if you bought it privately after original purchase) or Head-Direct first thing tomorrow morning. Best of luck to you. 

 

If I may ask, what is your HiFiMANs doing/not doing (symptom)?

Check the cable first. Disconnect the left cable and check for continuity with a multimeter.

The multimeter is good idea , but try reversing the connector at the headphones first. . The ones that screw on , these connectors are very small and delicat to a point start there first.

You can also check for continuity on the diaphragm if there's a break in the voicecoil.

Which amp at what volume? My question is not solution driven but one of pure interest.

:popcorn:

Tomorrow, I fully expect you to learn they'll have your back.

i hope so. was the speaker amp, i turned it a little loud, but not more than usual. was weird that it just died like that.

I found this pic on-line. You have to open it and check for continuity between those two wires.

If you don't want to or can't open it, you can also check the cable first for continuity. If the cable is good then reconnect it then check it again. That should tell you that there might be a break inside.

They he6 comes with two cables , did you try the other cable.?? If not the cable and under warrantee , I would email who you bought the item from and find out how it's repaired . Unless you are sure how to or capable of making repair , I would not open it up. Just giving advice

oh i see... seems easy, now all i need is a working multimeter, mine is broken :(

post #10963 of 19726
the cable is definitely good. im just gonna have to email hifiman and hope their service is as good as audeze or beyerdynamic.

Wow I did not know it was you dub step. Funny I was going to say pm dub step as I have read you play it very loud some where and ask you. Lol sorry to hear it's you.

You can break the voicecoil by too much excursion of the diaphragm from playing it very loud. Or you can also fry the voicecoil from too much current.
