I only use 1 ear for the cue so only just noticed that no sound comes out of my right side on my hd 25s. I've tried it on an mp3 played incase it was the mixer/needle but no luck.
Is there any way to fix this, by replacing the cable maybe? I don't want to fork out for spare parts if they won't help, but i'm going to use them for my mp3 player/laptop more so need both sides working

Maybe check the cables for any damage, if they've spent a lot of time being tangled or trodden on or whatever then could be the cables. Are the plugs loose at all?

i had the same issue. took them apart to see what was wrong with them. Turns out theres a microscopicaly thin wire that connects the cable to the cup and it had come free. i attempted to solder it back together (and i consider myself to be fairly proficient when it comes to electrical shit) and ended up completely fucking it. i now have to use shitty headphones as i cant afford new ones.

The opening and closing mechanism on the headband part of the HD 25 can cut into the wire when you close it. Have a look and see if there is any wear on the wires from this. I know my brother got his replaced because of this issue, but his new ones are the same. He just has to be careful.

Why dont you just buy the spare part? Beauty of HD25's is all parts are replaceable!

I was having a similar issue, I found the plugs that connect to the sockets in the cups was coming loose, just pressed it in really hard and its fine.
