    It didn't copy the whole website, so use this one.

    http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/shop...

    select your noise canceling headphones, and order them. If this whole link doesn't copy over then just go to their website and near the bottom of the page there is a link to QuietComfort accessories. Its under that link

Could be possibly dirt in Ipad headphone jack (common prob) - put a drop of isopropyl alcohol in Ipad jack - just a drop. You might also check headphones in a computer jack to verify if it is possibly the headphones.

One side of my Bose quiet comfort on ear headphones isn't working...can you help?


This is a problem that has to do with the wiring of the headset and any attempt to open it up to work with it may damage your headphone further.
It might require you to open up the part that doesn't function and ensure that the wires are properly connected and to make sure they are not jamming one another as this can cause failure in the speakers.
If you are able to go through the wiring and there is nothing wrong, it is therefore the speaker at that part of the headset that is not working and has probably exceeded it's lifespan and needs to be changed.
If you do not want to go through all these stress, you can send it to a technician.
please comment if you need more information.

Need repair on connector


The connector is called a 3.5mm stereo plug. You can purchase these plugs from electronic shops or Digi-key. It will require some careful soldering with a small soldering Iron. The outer tip is Right, the sleeve is Left and the large back sleeve is the ground.
Inside the headphone cable there are four wires. Two will be likely bronze in colour. These connect to the Ground. One wire is gren. This will connect to the middle sleeve. The last red wire will connect to the tip.
These are 'Litz' wire and contain a cotton fill for support. it can be a bit tough to solder.

Tdk mp100 headphone jack


Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.

Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing

Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.

Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.

  • You need to plan a way to relieve the pulling stress on the solder joints where the two headphone cords enter your replacement headphone jack.
  • Try shrink tubing if you have it.
  • If you have some thermal shrink tubing, slide a piece over the headphone cord end before stripping the wires.
  • Slide the headphone jack casing over the headphone cord also.
Strip each headphone cord 5/8" using the 18 gage setting of your wire stripper..

Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.

Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.

Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.

Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
  • Plan where you can crimp the headphone cord. Crimp it when ready.
  • The green == left channel wire goes to the tip of the 3.5mm jack.
  • The red==right channel wire goes to the middle of the 3.5 mm jack
  • The copper colored wires go to the ground of the jack..
  • Measure resistance, 31 ohms per earpiece.
  • Screw the jack cover on and finish the strain relief craftsmanship.

My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones


Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.
