Broken headphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My audio-technica A700's have been acting up lately. There is a horrible staticy, vibrating noise coming out of the left speaker. I opened them up to see what the problem was, and there is a sheet of plastic between the mesh that covers the speaker. This picture illustrates it:



The plastic is vibrating against something. Anyone have any ideas?

I think they have a good warranty on their products. May be able to send em back for repair. Also im sure replacement parts are available. I had a 2 year old par of senns that I ripped the cable out of and I was able to send them in and get them fixed for about 25 bux.

It's hard to tell from your picture. You could try to take the driver housing apart to remove the plastic, but you may end u p doing more damage. Your best bet would be to try to get them replaced under warranty. If they are not covered then venture a DIY.
