    Default ah i wrecked my sennheiser hd25s, any advice on some diy repairs?

    a shelf with my krks, my laptop and a computer monitor came loose from my wall and of course fell square on my 25s. cosmetically theyre fine but now i only get audio out of the left ear (the wired side). anyone know any links to some helpful info? figure it should be as simple as cracking them open and resoldering whatever came loose

    you mean like whatever theyre connected too? yeah i tested them on 3 different device outputs, i was expecting that it was just my busted ass phone and not my 25s. i checked the visible cables and nothing is externally loose

    Virtually every single part of HD-25s are available and replaceable to some means. It's just a matter of tracing what broke and ordering that. Do a complete disassembly (within your ability) and see what doesn't look not broken.

    so i did a complete disassembly and some basic tests. i unplugged the busted can and the good can, and i swapped plugs - no change. so its not the cables. opened up the bad can all the way down to the drivers - both red wires seem intact. gently used my screwdriver to see if they felt secure. plugged in the plug to see if the prongs were making contact with the springs. sure looks like it, ive got one of those desktop craft lamps with the magnifying glass and it looks right.

    i dont know, nothing really seems out of place yet im getting no sound. i just bought these early this year so its not even like theyre old

    are the casings visibly scuffed / marked, if the're tidy just take them back to the store and say they stopped weorking and you want a replacement, if they're under warranty

    Put up photos of the disassembly, maybe someone will see something.
