My HD-25 SP has developed a problem where when the cable is moved then either of the ears will cut out until i move the cable a little bit at the connection to the ear.

It does not require much to get it to cut out, or more than a touch to get it back in. Originally I thought there was a short in the cable, but since then I have figured it is a problem with the connection to the ears.

Any ideas? I would think it was an unlucky glitch except it is happening with both ears. I am very gentle on my stuff so I do not feel that I have abused them.

Thanks

This was a pretty common problem on the 580/600/25 many years ago that has since been corrected. Senn can repair them under warranty or at your cost, hopefully they are new enough to be warrantied.

So I don't guess there is anything I can do myself? I doubt they are on any type of warranty. I bought them second hand off of ebay so I don't have a receipt or anything.

I had a similar intermittency problem with my HD-600 not long ago. It was due to the loosening of the spring connected to the driver. I managed to fix the problem myself. You may want to take a look of the repair photos below to have an idea.

Good luck!

thanks. that looks like it might help. Now, does anybody know how to get to the connection on the HD25? I take off the cushion and I cannot get any other part apart.
