Westone 3 Cable Repair?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I bought my pair of Westone 3 many years ago, so basically I don't have the warranty anymore. Recently, I noticed that there was a slight rip in the cable, (location of which circled in the following image), and I'm wondering if it's absolutely necessary that I send it back to Westone for repairs, or would it be okay for someone else to do it. The cable has teared in such a way that there's now a connectivity issue, so sometimes I don't actually hear anything in the earphone with the tear. (ie. I'd have to position the earphone in a certain way so that the wires are touching).

I know if the repair isn't done correctly that there might be some noise problem due to maybe poor soldering or something like that. However, if it isn't too big of an issue, I suppose a local repair shop would be much more convenient if they could get the same job done.


I'm from the Vancouver, BC, so if anyone could recommend me a repair shop somewhere in the Lower Mainland (Burnaby, Richmond, Downtown, North Van ideally) then that' be great.

 

Thanks!

Depending on where you live and how much you want to spend there's a couple of options.

 

There's

who can put sockets into the iems so you can use your own choice of cables.

 

Or


You can do a "reshell" of the 3's and get them turned into customs.  Plenty of threads on this process.

 

Cheers
