Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
I bought these cause they seem legit, 900Mhz wireless, nice quality design not flimsy, and they're Sony (which a lot of my items are). However, they ****... They have static at any range from the transmitter, even right next to it (2-5 inches away), unless I touch the headphones to the transmitter. Which basically defeats the purpose of wireless headphones...and it looks stupid doing that. Has anyone else figured out a solution or any trick to minimize the background noise? Obviously its radio waves and electronics polluting my signal cause when I move to certain area's it becomes less noticeable, but I don't want to stand in the kitchen when I'm watching Tv and the bathroom isn't the best place to hang out.. I don't have many things turned on while in use, just the stereo and the Tv, but they are hooked up to my stereo rather than my Tv. Perhaps I could make the change but then I would have to go behind the Tv every time I want to switch from stereo to headphones and thats a real pain for as often as I use both, everyday. I tried to move them behind the Tv (I know its not a good start), I tried them at eye level in front of the Tv, on the floor in front of the Tv setup, I tried them on the speaker on the side of the Tv and I even tried to put the transmitter on a little end table out of the path of the Tv about 2-3 feet to the side. If I use a longer cord for it I may as well just sell em' and buy wired headphones. I'm only 6-8 feet from the Tv unless I'm walking around, in which case it gets mixed results depending where I am. Any help would be AWESOME!!
There are ways to fix interference, but first you have to find where it is coming from. First, switch off appliances one at time, fridge, freezer, furnace, AC, anything with a motor in it.
then start with wifi, turn your router off, and then any audio units, and set top boxes not involved in the test. Disconnect speaker wires one at a time.
One of these things is miraculously going to make the noise stop. Then you find out why? It is often screening wires badly connected. Any wires involved with audio and power should be kept apart, especially ANYTHING to do with the wireless headphone transmitter.
Google Ferrite rings. Also use good quality, screened audio, and speaker leads.

Yeah, based on all of your problems, i would safely say that you have a blown speaker. Call up Bose at 1-800-999-2673. If the headphones are under warranty (1 year) they will replace them for free. If now, they will charge you $100 for a replacement pair, which is quite a deal considering that the headphones cost $300.

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!

You can fix this with some soldering skill and a lot of tinkering. its not terribly hard but can damage your ipod or what ever your listening to if you do it incorrectly. On the flip side im looking for a pair of the ear buds with out a cord for a new life in a project. If you need more help or may be interested in working out something email me. n_raven99(at)hotmail.com
