Make sure this is isolated to the headphones by trying them with other devices/trying other headphones with the original item that caused the issue. Make sure you use different music files as well.
If it is still the headphones then it is a cable fault, the only place I know where to get them is direct from Bose so give them a call.

Raven01@Hi, The left hand speaker has snapped off the head band on my bose qc2. Also, the blacl plastic that hold the headband together above the right speaker is coming apart. Can I buy a replacement...

No, Bose doesn't cover any damage done to products that is any fault of the buyer. You might be able to if you contact a Bose retailer and special order it through them. Just a note, it will cost you more for the new speaker due to it being a special order. Probably around the lines of 40-50% of the original sales price (which is outrageous). If I were in your shoes, I'd try to find the same unit on craigslist or Ebay.

Hi My QC2 had the sound off ...No idea what happened. Is there anyway to fix it? Tks Lewis

There is no common fault with these headphones, the fact that both channels are off at the same time means it is highlyunlikely that the transducers h or a connection in the plug has failed. That leaves the battery, battery connections and the circuit board. Due to the construction of the board there are no user reviceable parts so if it isthe board bose will have to replace it, therefore all you can do is make sure the source is ok by using some other cans, use a fresh battery and make sure the battery contacts are reaching the battery. Finally it is possible that the switch has failed but if that was the case moving it around would cause th intermittentlye phones to operate If you checked all that and no joy i'm afraid it's back to bose.

Won't turn on after swapping battery for a new one, it had crackling in both earcups but now it's completely dead.

It sounds like a battery problem.
Check to see if the battery is installed correctly.
Take it out and put it in again, and see if it works.
Try a another battery that you know is good.
If you have any way of testing the battery do it.

If the crackling was happening before you changed the battery you may have another problem, otherwise a sick battery is more probable than the earphones dying at exactly that time.

Bose QC 2 Noise Cancelling Headphones the red light is on. Should there be a green light if they are working?

No green light for QC2, just red. If it's constant the battery is charged, powering the noise cancellation, and, if connected to an audio device, conducting sound. If the red light is blinking, the battery is losing its charge.

My QC2 right headphone starts to buzz, like a vibrating sound

It is a blown woofer in the headphones that is causing the vibrating. Because when a woofer is blown is will develop a small tear, this tear will get bigger over time and cause that "vibrating" sound that you hear. Lucky for you joenfrancis your headphones are still under warranty so they will replace the headphones for free. Hope this helped!

It may be a wheel bearing going bad. The A4 is known for wheel bearing issues, and the A6 shares many drivetrain parts with the A4.
