I've noticed a second or two of silence when bumping the headphone. In my case the battery was low and a fresh battery fixed this particular problem. Or maybe you have a poor connection.

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.

This may be your headphone jack (what you use to connect it to your
ipod or speakers ect.). check the connection there, and if you see the
wire became loose near it, that is most likely the problem. You can fix
it! With a new headphone jack (available at the Source or Radioshack or
other stores like that), and with some manual soldering (it's not too
hard, I fixed my myself and I havn't soldered before.) you'll get those
headphone to be as good as new. here are the steps to fix this problem.
1. cut your old headphone ******** and strip the wires. you should see two wires; one copper wire and one coloured wire (green or Red) on each cord. there is a total of 4 wires, two per cord.
2. Tin coat the wires. this means to burn the wires a bit (with the soldering iron) and put solder over them. this gets rid of the coating that is on the wires to stop them from shorting out in the cord and helps conductivity when soldering them onto your headphone jack.
3. there should be three holes on your new headphone jack. there should be two prongs left and right of the part you plug into the machine, and there should be one connected to the part that holds the wires once done.
4. connect the coloured wires (red and green) to the left and right prongs of the new jack and secure with solder. These are called the live (or hot) wires because they are the ones that send the signal that makes the sound.
5. connect both of the copper wires to the other hole and secure with solder. these wire are both ground wires, which are very important.
6. by the end, you should have connected four wires. two to the seperate prongs, and two to the third ground hole.
7. test your connection by trying to use your headphones. if it does not work (which may happen, don't get discouraged!) check your soldering. if it is touching any metal it shouldn't be, that means you have created a short circuit. simply burn off the solder (with the soldering iron) and try again.
8. keep trying until you get sound. good luck!
9. Once you get sound, you may want to secure the soldering job. you can either use two part epoxy and put this over your work, or you can tie a knot before you put the cover on you headphone jack. either will work just fine. Also, there sometimes are two metal protrusions that you can bend with plyers to help hold your chord in place.
10. enjoy your fixed, good as new headphones! Enoy hope this helped.
