SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: wire has been cut

My wire was cut, and I made it worse trying to fix it....with several failed attempts... was becoming despondent, but gave it one last try, and was successful. First, each little tiny wire has two internal wires, one green (ground) and one gold (hot). At first, the green one looked like some fiber or filler and I cut it, connected the gold wires and nothing happened. On further inspection, with magnifying loopes, I determined the green fiber was in fact green wire. There was also a lot of clear fiber, which is insulation? filler?... I don't know, but I cut it out, leaving only the wires. From the internet, I determined that the wires had a thin layer of plastic on them for insulation, which I burned off lightly with a lighter, connected the green together, soldered it, wrapped in electrical tape, then connected the gold together, soldered it, and taped again....and to my suprise it worked. I used twist ties, and epoxy to strenthen the area and was done, my headphones are working again.

SOURCE: Wire broke right next to headphone jack; any easy way to fix?

if you are not handy, then no.
repair will require disassembly of the ear piece, splicing of the wire, and reassembly.

No sound


To answer this one, we'll need a lot more information. The following

1. Verify your cable. There's no way to post a picture so we'll try this in text. Looking at the 5-pin DIN (called P1) with the pins to the top, number them 1 through 5 from left to right (regardless of how they may be numbered on a connector as it is unmarked on the cable). Looking at the 8-pin mini DIN (called P2) with the key at the top, number the top row 1 through 3 (left to right in all cases), the middle row 4 through 6 (pin 6 will be the one separated by a gap from the other two), number the bottom row 7 and 8.

Now, make sure that continuity exists. This is how my cable was wired as follows: P1-1 to P2-7, P1-2 to P2-8, P1-3 and P1-4 to P2-6, P1-5 to P2-1. If you do not show that each wire is good, then you either have a damaged cable or audio is not being output by the Bose control unit or your system uses a different cable wiring, which means that you will need to verify that your cable connects each 5 pin DIN to some on the 8 pin mini DIN

2. Make sure that a headphone is not inserted in the headphone jack on the side. If it is, then sound in not connected to the rear ports. It may sound silly, but someone may have connected headphones and nobody realized that they're still connected.

3. Do you have an oscilloscope? If so, then you'll need to insert wires into the 8-pin mini DIN connector for the zone you're using. Using the pinouts from step one for the cable connector will create a mirror at the Bose jack as follows, left to right, top to bottom 3, 2, 1 - 6, (gap) 5, 4 - 8, 7.

Audio comes out at pins 7 and 8. So connect your scope at those points and ground the probe by clipping it to one the RCA shields. Turn the unit on and make sure that you have a source producing signal, such as a disc or a radio station and see if you see signal. The output at these pins appears rather low, so you set your scope sensitive enough.

My Bose produced audio, but also clicking at an increasing frequency and amplitude as the unit heated up, that results in a lot of noise. I verified the wiring and output with this method.

I have had the bose in-ear headphones for a year and they were great at first and then all of a sudden the left earpiece stops working. If I move the part that connects the headphones to the ipod then it...


If your headphones are in warranty (under a year old) Bose will repair or more likely replace them with a new pair. I am now on my forth pair or Bose in-ear headphones and experienced the same problem with an ear piece stop working. I have to say Bose customer service has been fantastic and has replaced each pair. Every new pair is then covered by a new full years warranty. Unfortunately my fourth pair has just gone wrong with the same connector problem. Bose again have said they will replace as they are in warranty. I have been told if they are out of warranty they will offer a new pair at a discount price of £50 instead of £80. However i think that if my new pair go wrong out of warranty i will have no option but to look at alternatives.A Pair of headphones that cost £80 should last more than a year!!!

Loose connection in Bose headphones


Cut the ******** and replace it with a new one. You will need to solder the wires on to the new one. Keep the old one, cut it open and it will tell you which wires go to which terminal.

Cord broke off at plug connection point Does Bose repair this? Does anyone repair this?


it certainly could be repaired. just requires a new connector and some soldering expertise. unsure of any 'store' or 'vendor' that one could walk into for such a repair. depening on how much they cost it may or may not be worth pursuing repair from the manufacturer. perhaps you have a friend who can solder? then you may be able to get the connector at a store such as radio shack.

alternative - it wont be pretty, but if you have a compatible connector from some other unused or broken headphones or cable - you could cut off that connector (keeping some length of wire to work with)
-separate the 2 wires (both from the new connector and from the headphones) and strip back the the insulation on them, about 1" or so.
-unwrap the shield and twist it to keep the stands together
-this should reveal another insulated wire - strip this one back about 0.5"
-join the matching wires from the 2 parts (4 total connections) take care to arrange the wires so that none of the bare wire parts touch each other - use tape (preferably electrical tape) to cover them individually to achieve this.
-test it out.

Regardless of the audio source I connect my Bose QuietComfort 3 Headphones to, I can hear a small amount of static, especially at lower volumes. I have used another pair of headphones to test the devices...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Yes Sir, as you have cross checked the audio so other possibilities have been ruled out, the only problem can be with your Head Phone unit, usually what happens is somewhere from inside the wire get cracked, or short resulting in noise or static, so the solution is to replace the wire, but the unit is a delicate thing so I'll never advice to D.I.Y.

I hope you have a clear picture now,
Regards, Waqar.

Jack / Cord problem


yes basically if you look at the jack end you should see where the join is it may unsrew then look at the wires in side and the looose one should be seen if not yu can get a new jack from most online electronics Maplin -RS- or any electronics supplier you will need to resolder the wires onto the new connector..make sure you keep the other snipped off connector for reference when resoldering new.. There are a few tips to soldering.. maker sure the wire is twisted before soldering and touch the wire to the solder tip then bring teh solder wire to the wire to tin (melt solder) the end then do the same with other wires. once the wires are tinned bring to plate on teh connector and touch wire to connector and then solder tip to where wire and connector are.. if you keep teh soldering iron on the connection to long you may melt the plastic jack surround so I usually use a metal jack type.. if it has three wires one is for left one for right and one earth..copy the old jack wiring and you should be ok.. Good Luck A

I lost the sound on the right ear of my bose around-ear head phones and I checked the lines and nothing is cut, the left ear is working perfectly. Please help!


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.
