Question about Bose QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones

3 Answers

Silence when chewing something crunchy??

I know this sounds crazy, but I have found that if I chew something crrunch (say almonds or carrot sticks), my headphones go silent for like a second and then click back on. As I listen all day at work, and am quite a grazer, this is problematic.

You paid good money for a noise-cancelling headset and it is just trying to do that; cancel noise.
The pickups used to find the level of noise and cancel it, don't really care if they are picking up crunching carrots or someone hammering nails; they cancel.
At the risk of sounding facetious, do you keep your mouth closed while chewing like our moms taught us? <grin>

Can I replace the jack that my puppy chewed off

The puppy probably chewed off the plug. If the plug was molded on, it may be more practical to replace the entire cord assembly.

No sound in right speaker.

Strip the rubber off both broken ends very carefully, then off the 2 wires in each end, so you can see the metal in the wires. Connect one metal part of each end to one metal part of the other end, twist them to lock them to each other. Do same for the other metal part. Make sure the wires do not have their metal parts touching each other.

My dog chewed my headphones and one is hanging by a wire, but still works nicely. Is there a company that repairs earbuds?

Headphones in general are not repaired but replaced, even if you found one the cost would be on the high side, probably more than what you paid for them. I would use them as long as they will last and hunt for a new one.

yes but it is tricky and would be easier to buy new ones. You have to strip and reconnect each wire and then cover it in electrical tape. It will look bad and may never have the same quality.

My dog chewed on earphone and the sound is all crackly. Is it possible to get one fixed and what would it cost?

HI. If your dog chewed on the actual hardware and wire strands, this will not be repairable. The strands that carry the actual sound data stream have been compromised and separated from the main strand that runs through the ear piece. This type of trauma cannot be repaired, unfortunately. You will need to replace the entire ear piece set. I can understand that you want to repair and not replace, but this will be the only option in your case. You will need to replace the entire ear piece set or deal with that deteriorating sound quality.

My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones

Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.

Hi Meanmama

Is there still enough cable left from the headphones to the chewed end for comfortable use? If not you might have to replace the whole cable length.

If not, you can just fit a stereo mini jack (3.5 mm diameter) on the chewed end.

For this you will need a soldering iron and some basic soldering skills.

Are you able to solder a plug onto a lead?
