Earphones went for a plunge -_-

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, today my earphones decided to go for a dive, my clumsiness caused my earphones to fall into a cup of water which was quite low but not all the way to the bottom, the right earphone works perfectly fine, the left one works but I've realized the volume has decreased a little and when set to medium or high volumes I can hear the vibrations, when the incident occurred I made sure I unplugged them, dried It out and tested It at a safe distance, I was surprised It was still working, but the vibrations in the left earphone Is annoying,

Is there anything I can do or resolve the vibration? the low volume is only a little bit lower than the right earphone so it's still useable and nowhere near quite.

Any help Is appreciated. Thanks

what happened probly was a bit of water got inside, causing an air pressure unbalance to occur which is holding back the speaker's driver and possibly bending it as a well, which would explain the volume and vibration/distortion.

Submerge it in a bag/container of rice for a day or two to try and evaporate any extra moisture.

I could be completely wrong, but its worth a shot right?>

Yeah thanks I'll try It out, this is the second psot in two days I've noticed which is about water and using rice which I never knew gets the job done haha, also the speaker bit of the earphone is stuck to the plastic, the R earphone I can remove easily but It seems what you said about a Air Pressure Unbalance is probably true, I'll give it a shot and see what the outcome is, i'll also try to report back.

Thanks They're about 8-£9 Sony earphones but they are really good, I can't be bothered to purchase another one from amazon and I love my music to much to postpone listening to it.

Hmm I think I'll just get another pair they're quite cheap, well I didn't get to try the rice as I didn't have any at home but I suppose they would have dried out over these two and a half days.
They stll sound the same and the speaker part of It is still stuck to the plastic which could be causing the problem.

I'll have to make sure I'm more careful next time, or get headphones as they are big and bulky and should be able to withstand damage, this is the first time I've accomplished to damage headphones.
