Hello, I've had my VC02 for maybe a year or more now, at the time of purchase they had really great sound for the price ($~35) and if you like neutral sound signatures they're excellent I really like them :).
However, just recently one of the drivers has stopped working reliably. It sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, fades in and out, starts/stops working if you wiggle it enough.
The other driver works completely fine.
I glued them together so I can't swap the cable and the driver.
However what I did do was detach the removable cable and the driver that's not working and cleaned the contacts. Also when it was working I checked by sliding the contacts in and out, and it seems like that part is completely fine.
I opened up the driver that's not working and it looks like the wires are connected solidly. It does start/stop working if I just wiggle it a bit but AFAIK there is no correlation between wire positioning or if the wires are touching or not. I don't think the insulation wore off and is shorting.
I can't think of what else it could be unless the sound driver itself is dying. I hope that's not the case :(
Thanks for reading.
