Shure 535 right subwoofer died then came back. Should I be concerned?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My shure 535 subwoofer driver (at least I think it was that) in the right ear died randomly while I was listening to music. I tried them on the next day and they worked fine and have been fine now for a week. Was it just a glitch or should I be concerned?

I wasn't aware that there was a driver for just subwoofer with just one crossover. Was it just the bass that went out on one side or the sound cut-out altogether or got real low?

It was hard to pin down but something clearly shut off, it was definitely one of the drivers. low frequencies seemed to be the most affected and the general sound got really low.

Get you a can of connection cleaner (like DeoxIT or something similar). Remove the earpiece from the cable and spray a little on the connections and inside the grooves of the earpiece. Wipe off the residue and make sure you hear a slap when you connection the earpiece back. Sometimes moisture causes a corrosive buildup like on the car battery posts.

Well they are more or less brand new.

More or less? Shure sent me an earpiece replacement and I had to clean it after I noticed a cut out problem a week after a got it. But if you don't think that is the problem, someone recently started a thread about a 535 sound-out problem having to do with the tip (I think). You can look for that thread and see how it was resolved.
