The Headset Hack

Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset.

What a pity… Last year I have bought this one for watching movie and online conferencing. It was a good one as you can’t feel any pain after wearing it for two hours.

Not until last night did I realize that it was behaving weird. During a movie all the background sound is there but the speech of the main character is missing. I began to suspect there were some broken wires within. Instead of declaring it certified I decided to dissect it first and try to locate the problem. (Just as my daily job of debugging software, it is hardware this time).

You can click the above to see them closer in my flickr album. I was able to locate a nearly broken golden wire (I am not sure if it is the cause of problem). Unfortunately I don’t think I can fix it. Kinda fed up with the peripherals getting out of order one by one recently, yet again, it’s time for another replacement.
