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.

SOURCE: Less sound on one ear than the other

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.

SOURCE: I lost the sound on the right ear of my bose

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.

Rattling in left earcup


Sounds like you have blown out the cone on the speaker. Have you removed the covering to see if the speaker in that earphone is intact?

Severe squelch in left ear phone


The design of these headphones includes a microphone on the outside and on the inside of each earcup. The outside microphone detects outside noise. The inside microphone monitors what you are hearing and when it detects that the outside noise is present inside, the active noise-canceling circuits remove that noise. This happens fast enough that you perceive a significant reduction in the outside noise getting to your ears.

The airspace inside the earcup is a tuned chamber defined by the shape of the foam in the ear cushion. This is important because with the inside microphone in close proximity, but at a 90-degree angle to the speaker, the circuit must be designed to eliminate the normal feedback that occurs.

If the foam in the ear cushion has weakened/deteriorated to the point that it no longer has it's original shape, (in particular the lower half of the ear cushion), the size and shape of the air chamber inside of the earcup is directing more of the speaker sound toward the microphone than the design can compensate for causing audio feedback to occur. You are hearing that feedback.

On my QC-3 headphones, I can cause the feedback squeal in both earcups, with the left earcup being more sensitive to the shape change than the right.

It is probably time to replace the ear cushions. If so, they are available from Bose for $35/pair.

How to replace ear cushion on bose QC 3 headphone


The ear cushions are held on the earcup with six snap fasteners, three on each side. To remove the ear cushion, simply pull it away from the earcup carefully so that you do not break the plastic snap tabs.

It should not be necessary to pry the ear cushion off with a sharp object, but if you do, be careful. There is also a thin gasket seal between the earcup and the ear cushion, take care not to damage it.

If you need to replace the ear cushions with new ones, they are available from Bose for $35/pair.

Bose quietcomfort 15 right headphone stopped working


My guess is that the flimsy wire connection inside broke. I have worked on Bose earphones that do not even have any strain relief provisions.

Static in the left ear, feels like a bad connection


Hi.

First test if the problem occurs using different output devices. Also ensure there is no earthing problem with the wall socket. In that case you will get the problem even when playing from speakers.

If the problem depends on the speakers, then it is a bad connection. The headphones are not supposed to be disassembled and must be replaced.

Call Bose to sort out the problem.

Only left earphone is working


You should return them to the place you bought them. They should be able to sought the problem out. You might need the sales ticket. Or visit the Bose website. They should have telephone number helpline.

A Bose headset is buzzing


The speaker in that Ear Cup may be blown. You should consider replacing the set with a newer one.

If you listen to this with that static noise you risk serious injury to your ear.
