to fix or to dump it? this is the question

Hi all,

 

I have a pair of cheap (but great value) Sennheiser HD202 II that is past the official warranty time (3.5 years from purchase. only 2 years warr). 

Right side stopped playing. Left is fine. No tears or kinks and I opened the ear-piece - seemes un damaged inside too.

 

Is there a quick fix to that or it's not worth the time /money? (at this point, I guess it's a mixture of dissapointment and technical curiousity)

 

If we're on the topic - I'd live to get recommendations for good budget headphones to use with home stereo.

 

many thanks

HEADPHONES.

It is very likely a bad connection in the cable or the plug.

It is posible that the actual transducer of the headphone is bad, but it is not likely.

seems like it'll not be worth

seems like it'll not be worth (paying for ) fixing

 

any idea of a good pair of budget headphones?

 

many thanks

worth it

I find that one side going intermittent and then dead is a universal problem with headphones, after a good amount of time and use.  And can be easily fixed.  Contact Sennheiser.

How much do you mean when you say budget?
