Question about Bose QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones

Open Question

Hi, I have philips SHM1900 headphone and today there was a sudden tenson on the wire. After a while I pluged it to the computer and tried to listen to it. But the sound comes just from the left side of it. The right side is soundless. I opened the sound control "place" in the wire of my headphone. And when I maintain a contact between the right and left side wires, I can hear sound in both sides. But I am sure that is not the right way of solving it? What can I do?? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Bose in-ear headphone cord cut

most head phones there two wires. those are the two that you most likly put together. if there is any metel mesh covering the wires. that has to be connected also.

Its likely a broken wire. You can take them apart if you are careful and re solder the wire if you have the tools and are ok with doing that. its a little tricky. if you need more help email me. n_raven99(at)hotmail.com

Why is the sound in one ear only?


It's probably a broken wire.

First, make sure it happens with those headphones no matter what you plug them into. If you're using them on your computer, try plugging them into your phone or someone else's computer. If you're using the quarter-inch adapter, try plugging into something that will take the eight-inch plug (the picture I'm seeing of your headphones shows an eighth-inch plug with a quarter-inch adapter). If the problems goes away, then it's either the adapter or the audio jack on the original device. But a new quarter-inch adapter online or at your local Radio Shack. If that doesn't fix it, then the jack on your device is shot, and your best bet is probably to get a new device. (Before I spent the money on a new device, I'd borrow another set of headphones, just to be sure that the problem persists no matter what headphones you use.) If the device is a computer, then you can buy a USB sound card (which plugs into a USB port and has mike and headphone jacks on the other end) instead of replacing the whole computer.

But it's more likely that the problem will persist no matter what you plug into, and it's your headphones. It's probably a broken wire; sometimes if you jiggle the wires going into the dead earpiece, you'll get crackling to confirm this diagnosis. But it doesn't really matter why the headphones don't work; no matter what's broken, the repair is more expensive than replacement. Time for new headphones.

The above answer assumes that you are listening to a stereo sound source. In addition to trying your headphones on another device, you should make sure you're listening to a stereo sound.

Hey there,

Headphones/earbuds are actually quite a bit more fragile then people think.
Wrapping them up tightly and bending them excessively puts stress on the metal wire inside, and will eventually wear it down thin or break.

Two weeks doesn't really seem like a very long time, so they might have been defective from the factory. I would try returning them for an exchange.

Hope this helps! If it did, go ahead and rate me :)

Cheers

It sounds like you have a faulty connection between the headphones and the music device. Try fiddling with the port of your computer, iPod, or whatever else you use to listen to music. If the headphones do this on more than one device, it's a problem with them. Fiddle with the cord while you listen and see if you can target the bad area of the cord. If you can manage to listen to the headphones successfully while tweaking the cord, you might be able to use them still, if not they're probably blown or dead. Hope this helps =]

My left earphone does not work and I just bought them today


Hi,

Unfortunately quite a common problem with all headphones this!

It is caused by a faulty wire in the headphone. It can be fixed by resoldering/replacing the wire.

However it is normally cheaper (and easier) to return the headphones to the shop you bought them from. Especially if they are new like yours are.

I would advise you to return the item to the shop as faulty and ask for a replacement.

The right ear has completely lost signal output. Anything I can do to save these awesome headphones?


check the wiring at the base of the right earphone .
try to put it on and giggle the wire around while listening to it .
the common problem with most head phones is the the wire is twisted too often and break at the base of the earphone .
If this is not the case , check the plug which could again be the same problem .
If the problem persist , the speaker could be faulty of one of the channels on the earphone output could be down .
