You may have experienced this before: you put on your headphones, turn up the volume, and all of a sudden they stop working. You try to look for any signs that something is wrong with them but it’s not there. The wires are still intact and when you plug in another pair of headphones into your device, they work just fine. What could be happening?
The most common problem with headphones is getting them to work again after they are blown out. There are a few different methods that one can use to fix the problem, and this article will go over some of these options so you can get your favorite music back on.
In order for this process to be successful, though, it is important that you have lots of patience and don’t try too many things at once because if you do not take time to identify the issue then there is no chance of correcting it successfully.
How can you fix a Blown Headphone?
Fixing blown headphones can be a bit tricky and you may need some specific tools to do it properly.
- The first thing you should try is using compressed air on the ear buds. The reason you should use compressed air is because it will get rid of any fluff or debris that may have gotten into the jack due to being dropped, moved around in your pocket or by other means of transportation. Compressed air comes in a can and when sprayed outwards creates this huge force which makes it ideal for getting all this excess fluff out of your headphone jack. If there is too much build up then there may be times where the music either skips or it stops playing altogether.
- Another method that I like to use is blowing into the jack (like you would blow a flute). This is handy because it allows you to remove any moisture that may have gotten trapped inside and started rusting some of the components. It’s not as good as compressed air, but if you don’t have access to one then this will do just fine.
If the above methods fail you then there are two other options: having the headphones professionally repaired or buying an entirely new pair altogether.
- The first option is going to require some patience on your part because it might take anywhere from 2 weeks up to 6 months in order for them to actually repair these headphones. The reason they take so long is because they have several customers waiting in line and a limited amount of repairmen doing the actual work. The best thing you can do is contact them in advance of needing these headphones repaired and see how long it would take to have them returned to you.
- The second option, which I recommend if you cannot wait that long, is buying a new pair of headphones altogether because there are just so many different kinds and brands that they will be able to help you out. I personally prefer Sony brand but it’s all up to your own personal preference. Good luck with fixing those headphones.
