Outbalanced earphones

  1. Mar 22, 2008 #1
    I have many earphones of which only one earpiece works. For some it's the right earpiece.. for some it's the left. What causes it to be outbalanced? Most of the outbalanced ones are Made-in-China type of cheap stuff i bought [or stole] from various places.

    Is there anything i can do to restore its functionality?

    Usually the wire got pulled out - it happens to which ever ear has the weakest connection. You could try pushing the wire near where it joins the earpiece and adding a drop of superglue.
