I have tried many types of glue and the action of taking them off and on just puts too much strain on the joint.
The best thing I can suggest is to either find a cheap headphone that uses the same size speakers as your Bose and fit yours in them.
Alternativly melt the joint (once you have joined it with super glue) using a soldering iron not greater then 25 watts. You might have to melt some other plastic on to the joint such as a pen top. I should warn you to use safety glasses and do it in a well vented room. You need the glasses for the smoke that comes off, it will go in your eyes and it's not nice!
Even then you have to handle them carefully and not put too much strain on the repair.

How won't my new headphones connect with my I pod through bluetooth

In most cases this is because the new owner didn't read the instructions.

When you turn on Bluetooth on the iPod and click Search, you have to press something on the other piece of equipment to send the signal TO the iPod. Once they find each other, they connect automatically after that.

However, we have a problem. Your headphones Bose Quietcomfort Qc15 don't appear to be Bluetooth enabled! You have to connect with a lead.

Bose qc15 right side not working

If the cup itself is not cracked or broken, you can carefully detach the "snap on" cushion to expose the inner workings. There may be an inner cover which also can be carefully detached to expose the wire connections. After making repairs, reverse the disassembly process.

Just recieved a pair of qc15's after the first use the right ear cup will crackle intermittantly, building up then dropping out, it does it randomly

It's the EQ of your ipod or itunes that is tripping them up. Apparently there is a 'perfect' EQ to run them on but I'm not familiar with it. Running them with the EQ 'flat' should fix the problem. Hope this helps...

Bose qc15 no sound

Try the headphones in another stereo and if it still has no sounds the the headphone cord or plug is faulty.

My Bose QC15 won't turn on, I've already tried replacing the battery. What could be the problem?

Mine did this as well, totally frustrated I kept on rapidly switching them on and off, and eventually it just switched on!

Snapped at the top.. anyway of fixing it?

The person above has no idea what he is talking about. I've tried it all: Super glue, gorilla glue, all kinds of bonds but nothing works. The problem is that eveytime you use it the plastic is strained and it flexes to match the size of your head and it will give way where it is weak (i.e. the part where it snapped) My dad just melted the plastic with stove fire and smeared the liquified plastic with a heated screwdriver. It's been fine so far. But please do be careful. You might want to ask a person who is good with their hands to do this kind of job. Good luck.

Bose triport ear cups padding burst open how can i fix themcan iget new ear cups?

May be a little late for you, but both of my pads burst open, and after trying in vain to tell Bose how **** their products were (because they are) I decided to fix them myself rather than give Bose more money, allowing me to keep using my headphones until I buy another pair (from another manufacturer). Anyway, you can buy new pads off eBay, there seem to be a few on there, or, to fix yourself as I did, you can just pop the pads off (they clip on), then take a needle and thread and stitch the pads back together at the seam. This is a bit tedious, and you obviously have to jam the foam in there while you're doing it, but mine are now better than new (because my threads are stronger than the apparent **** glue that Bose uses). Takes a little time if you're not a big sewer (which I am not) but it's well worth the effort in my opinion. Gives you a great like-new pair of headphones...until the next thing breaks, and trust me, something will, it's Bose!
