KOSS UR 30 Headphone noise Empty KOSS UR 30 Headphone noise

Good evening all.
On my last trip out here in WA my KOSS headphones were found to be crackling and had noise reduction when I bent down to inspect a possible target. The sound from the headphones would drop when I bent down to dig but when I stood up the sound at the headphones would return to normal. On inspection of the cable all looks good but at the plug end there is a molded connection between the cable and the plug the moulded connection around the cable has cracked which. Can the plug be replaced and or do I have to replace the headset?
I would be happy to hear from anyone who has suffered a similar situation and or solution. Cheers Captain

Hi krazycaptain,

What you described is a common fault with moulded plastic plugs...they flex and the internal wires eventually develop a crack in them and create intermittent problems.

Get the plastic plug replaced with a metal shelled plug...they cost less than $5 to buy...Jaycar electronics sell them.

cheers

Hi Krazycaptain
I just fixed one with the same fault,there's nylon inside which goes hard in the cold mornings and cracks pulling the wires part,just put a good quality plug on and your away.The manual has the connection details.

Good afternoon Steve,
Thanks for the picture. Was very handy when I was purchasing the new phone jacks from Jaycar Busselton.
Will fit when I return to Kookynie. Thanks
John
