Hey guys, I have a pair of ATH-AD700's and they've been sitting in my room for over a year and a half because a month after I got them, the left side of the headset stopped transmitting audio.
At first I thought it was a problem with the AUX jack so I replaced it myself which wasn't much of a trouble, and then when I tested it the problem persisted.
I have also taken the casing off on both sides of the headset to see if the soldering had dis attached from the board but I couldn't spot any lose wires so I'm not quite sure what the problem could be.
Leave a post below if you have an idea to what the problem could be, as I don't want to fork out another couple hundred on a headset if the problem could be fixed.

Yeah I should've returned them during the time I had warranty but it didn't cross my mind as I quit gaming and lost all interested for anything associated with it.
a month after I got them
You should have returned them.
I thought that too but I highly doubt it, I remember the night before I last used them they were working perfectly fine and then the next morning I put them on and the left side didn't work at all. I'm assuming there's a problem with the solder but I'm not putting my money on it.
the speaker itself might be fucked

when you get a bad solder join it creates a high resistance joint. in audio/video thats bad for quality.
you can try heating the solder on the connections on the speaker to get it to reset maybe.
you can try disconnecting the left speaker and testing it on the right channel to confirm the speaker still works
thats all i can really say to you man
