Introduction

If your Monster DNA headphones are playing noise out of only one side then it is likely that there is a loose wire and this will need to be soldered. This happens frequently because small tensions on the wire can loosen the solder joints easily. To do so, you must disassemble the earpiece and reattach the wires.

  1. Take off the ear cushions by pulling on the sides.

I broke the plate which holds the ear muffs on, by following these directions.

On Step 3, you have the spudger in the wrong location. You are supposed to put the prying bar or spudger before or after the silver ring which acts as a spacer for the speaker housing. I like to pry in the space between the silver ring and the audio jack.

Pics look good but you will have replace the one in step 3 showing the correct location to pry from. Others too will brake the same ring I did hence your warning about damage to the headphones if applying too much pressure.
