Steelseries Siberia V2 sudden sound problem.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This morning I have woken up with a nasty surprise, the music was being played through only the right cup of the Siberia V2. Unplugged it a few times and it still had the same problem. After half an hour of debugging, I figured that if I twisted the cable at the end of the 3.5mm plug, the sound would be played differently (right cup, left cup, low sound, high sound, low quality, high quality, buzzing etc).
The problem is that it is impossible to maintain the "mod" in the preferred position.

I have searched on the Internet and came up with the solution that said I had to manually resolder the joints between the cable and the plug. Now it is not a viable option to send for RMA because I am in Vietnam, bought the headset in France and shipping costs could come up with around the price for a new headset.

Is there any alternative solutions to these ?

And if it somehow kills the entire headphone, will you buy me another one ? rolleyes.gif

EDIT : I'm just asking if there is a possibility to repair this and not damage the entire headset if somehow the soldering goes wrong.

The soldering will only go wrong if done by some1 who does not know what he/she is doing... rolleyes.gif
You can have the easy solution that most people use, buy new ones.
