Headphone Connections
Hi guys

I need your help please. I have had some problems with my Dr.Dre detox headphones. Does anybody have a connection diagram?

My other query which is the main one is:
If I measure between ground and left channel the reading is 16ish ohms
If I measure between ground and right channel the reading is 16ish ohms
If I measure between left and right channel the reading is 32ish ohms
Is this correct?

On my senhieser phones if I measure between the channels there is no continuity.
Each set uses the normal three connection plug. The Detox are a little more complicated because there is a jack connection on each ear piece that means you can connect to the amp on either side or daisey chain another set of phones.
This ought to be straight forward really but for some reason its not obvious to me.

Many thanks for your help

Yes, this is correct

the total impedance are 16+16, that's becouse headphones uses a comom ground

Yes that was my thoughts exactly until I measured between left and right on my Senhiesers that use the same type of stereo jack plug. There is no continuity yet they work perfectly.
