Getting to the point, I woke up this morning, and as usual went to get my S500's so i could listen to some music while eating breakfast. Then I discovered that music was only coming out of the right ear confused.gif frown.gif  I have absolutely no experience with welding or anything so I have no chance of welding on a new wire or whatever. I opened them up and everything seems to be connected okay and should be working just fine (with one exception, see below) but again, no experience with wires. 

 

  

 

 

The only thing that I noticed was wrong is the little piece of copper wire that is not attached to the rest of the copper wire.

If anyone could help me with this problem, advice and tips would be greatly appreciated.

Getting a replacement driver from JVC would probably cost more than a new pair.

 

If you are going to toss them out them let me know, I could remove the CNT drivers and use the rest for a project.

Ic3M0nk3y - don't be too hasty; hard to tell from the pix, but i think these are repairable.  you need to determine where the broken wire connects and either re-solder or use some silver-based (or gold-) conductive epoxy.

At first it looked like the voice coil wire that attaches to the board has come unsoldered, but looking closer it appears to be the other end. Looks like the side on the solder pad might still be attached.

Better pictures would help, straight down with the solder board in the center. A meter could tell you right away if the driver was bad.

About time!!! Great CD,...I listen to it once a day. I do dislike about 3 songs, which isn't a bad average considering there are 13 tracks. Overall a winner!!! Now try the "Discovery" CD,...

Never saw the movie. And yeah, having the album play in the background, I noticed a few songs that weren't as good, but there were plenty of good ones.

The last song on R.A.M. is too loud to close out the CD,...that throws a monkey wrench in it for me. Still, I luv it.

Welcome to the Club!

 

1. Wear them and listen to the music that you like.

2. Sorry I cant answer this one, I like the stock pads for that true S500 sound. biggrin.gif

I've got one on the way as well...............can't wait to hear the JVC bass.  Need a portable solution so this may be it.
