Did the sound level get muted or anything? Don't know much about Logitech headsets (Or headsets in general...), but you asked...

Sounds like you might have broken the wire between the jack and the speakers. You could splice a new wire in if the break is actually in the wire, rather than in the jack or earpieces. You could also replace the jack if that's where it's broken. Not a big deal really. They make the wires entirely too flimsy for my liking. :)

Don't buy crappy logitech headphones. I went through so many of those things because of that very problem. Now I use a set of Sennheiser headphones (with a seperate mic that I bought for like...twelve bucks). They are made so that the cord is detachable from the headphones (so if the cord itself breaks, you can just replace it and it's less likely to mess up in the first place). They're decently made, but I've had them for close to two years now probably. The only problem I've had is that on one of the ear thingies, the fake leather type covering on the cushion thingy has pulled away on the inside. It doesn't affect anything at all and I don't notice it. The sound quality is pretty darned good, though...'course I think I paid $70 for these. :P I figured that if these would last long enough, then it'd be worth it...so far it's looking like it'll be cost effective since I was going through Logitechs three times a year, practically.

I'd recommend a pair of Plantronics headsets if you can find one at a local Best Buy. They are great and sound quality is loud and clear. Loving my own pair. Cost me about $40 and lasted me about a whole year. My second headset too. The first was some lame Altec Lansing one, and the difference when I made the switch was amazing.

I wouldn't suggest Plantronics. In my experience they only last a year. I would go Sennheiser or Zalman.

I like logitech for the price and quality

I've still got my BF2 headphones somewhere...never used them, but I figured I'd keep them as spares just in case.
