Help me fix my headphones!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I own a Sennheiser PC350 headset which is currently half-broken. The mic does not work unless i hold the clip/switch section of the wire at a certain angle. I'm guessing that means the wiring is frayed (?)

I have sent an e-mail to Sennheiser asking how to safely open the switch without damaging anything else. they have not responded except to thank me for my e-mail.

What can I do to get my mic working again? I can provide pics, but they won't help since I have yet to crack open the darned thing.

Have you tried to open the switch?
If it's out of warranty, might as well open her up.

Nothing a soldering gun can't fix. As long as the chip itself isn't fried.
