    Same problem here :-(

    Glad to see it's a common thing, I've never experienced such a ridiculous problem with the many earphones i've experienced over the years.

    Based on the number of complaints, Bose in-ear headphones are obviously faulty.....AVOID THEM!

    Same here - I have to wiggle the lead near to the jack and the problem is becoming worse by the day.

    It seems to be a common fault - considering the cost of these headphones you would think they'd be problem free.

    The 2 year Bose warranty is only valid if you bought from an authorised seller which isn't great news for me!

No not really as the wires are extremely difficult to solder etc, best to contact bose for warrenty replacement or just have to go buy another pair.

The left side of my earphones randomly stopped working, can it be fixed?

Sounds like the wires are broken from stress or the mini jack is not inserted completely.

Only one side of my earphones works I would really like to know what is the problem and how to fix it I also have warranty

Always good to have a warranty. Usually one side will not work because the wires get grounded out or become disconnected internally due to the cord being bent near the headphone jack.

The sound/volume in my earphones is very low and the earphones are only two months old. is there any way to fix them?

Maybe you only have a bad stereo plug, this one can be replaced, if you have electronic soldering skills, you could do it by yourself, but also to discard stereo jack of your music source, test the headphones in another audio equipment.

How do you Fix earphone?

It could be the wire is broken inside, or more likely the jack is not fitting into the plug as well as it did when new. Have you tried it in another device to see if it works there?

One of the earphones doesn't always work you have to jiggle the wire near in the input plug and it will go on and off in the left earphone what's wrong and if possible how do i fix it

The wire in the plug or near it has broken. You can fix it if you know how to use a soldering iron. You will need to purchase a jack plug from your electronic shop. Determine where the break is and cut the cable below it. You will need to strip the end of the cable to get to the wires. There will be at least two coloured wires and two earths. Next with a sharp knife open the plastic barrell of the old plug. This should tell you where the wires connect on your new one. If in doubt remember that the earths will go together on the long metal piece of a 3.5mm plug. The two coloured wires (left & right) will go on the smaller lugs. If you get them wrong reverse them, but it will not hurt anything if you do. If the sound is spaced out after you have done connecting. Then a earth wire(s) is off. Make certain the wires only connect with the lugs they are supposed to and the solder doesn't short anything.

Only one earphone works, weird problem

there is a broken solder joint where it is on the pc is not the earbud itself,because when you pull it out,both sides work.the jack has 3 sections,the tip which is one side,the next piece,which is the other side,and the shank piece which is the ground.the ground connects to the outside ring of the headphone jack.there are 2 contact points inside for the two channels.what happens is the copper foil of the pc board fractures where the pins are soldered.scrape away some of the foil so that copper is exposed for the pins,and resolder it and it will work if you wiggle the jack,you will see the whole piece of circuit board move where it is cracked.after fixing it,put epoxy over the area to make it stronger.

Left side of stereo earphone does not work.

In side of your left wire there are two tiny coper wires (either blue/green/Red and gold) one of which is easily cut off.
Peel off the wire cover (Dont cut it off) near the earphone head (normally not more than an inch) to findout where one of the colored wire is cut off and fix it.
Note: Before you could join or fix this broken one firstly you need to burn up the color coded wire with fire for a SECOND so that all the color (green/Red...) are cleaned up.

If this dont fix Please tell me. Im here to help you

Good Luck!
