Question about Bose QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

My QC2 right headphone starts to buzz, like a vibrating sound

I can't seem to pinpoint when it happens. Sometimes when there is a lot of bass and other times when the volume is very low. I thought maybe the material that covers the speakers was touching. Not quite sure what to do. They are only 6 months old.

It is a blown woofer in the headphones that is causing the vibrating. Because when a woofer is blown is will develop a small tear, this tear will get bigger over time and cause that "vibrating" sound that you hear. Lucky for you joenfrancis your headphones are still under warranty so they will replace the headphones for free. Hope this helped!

Why are my headphones making a vibrating sound on the left side, when there is a lot of bass.


Each speaker works independently from each other. One speaker may use more low frequency tones than the other one.. Low frequency tones create a lot more noticeable vibration than higher frequency tones. You can reduce it by turning the volume down a little on the left speaker. It is possible that nuts came loose on the speaker.

I get a random buzz when I play music. First I thought it was my external hard drive failing, but have recently downloaded fresh music from amazon and that has a random buzz in most tracks. Replay the buzz...


I would have suggested it could have been to much bass as that can make some laptop speakers buzz sometimes but if the buzz is changeing place in random songs....,
The best way to test it is to use some headphones or external speakers through the headphone port if the buzz has gone it is an issue with the speakers themselves and could be dust or dirt on them or could be damage that needs them to be replaced.

Bass treble adjustments


I have the Toshiba Satellite C55-A5300.

I'm not sure about before the update, but after the windows 8.1 update my audio was pretty bad and had no bass at all.

In Control Panel ---> Hardware and Sound I found "Realtek HD Audio Manager" which has a tab named "DTS"

Once I hit the Launch buton I was able to apply settings for headphones and external speakers including bass boost.

My audio is now much better.

Hope this helps.

My ipod nano has songs but no sounds


Step 1:
Since entering the marketplace and revolutionizing the way people experienced personal audio, Apple's iPod has become the unquestioned leader in MP3 players. Available in several different models and versions including the original iPod, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Touch the iPod allows people to listen to any number of songs with just the click of the button. However, as is the case with numerous electronics, certain iPod users encounter issues with their device, particularly sound issues. These issues range from buzzing sounds through the headphones to low volume quality to no sound at all. Fortunately, there are ways to attempt to remedy these sound issues.

Volume and Song Selection Oftentimes, those iPod users listening to heavier music (such as rock or hip-hop) will encounter a buzzing noise when playing their device at maximum or near-maximum volume. Try lowering the volume a bit, as this will most likely remedy your buzzing issues. Also, try playing a different song from a different artist at the same volume to ensure sound quality is optimal across the board. Check the Headphones Before attempting to diagnose an iPod's sound issues, ensure the iPod itself (and not the headphones) are the culprit for these sound issues. Do so by disconnecting headphones from the iPod and playing them on another device, such as another iPod, a PC or laptop. If the quality is still not optimal, the headphones (not the iPod) are likely the reason for low sound quality. Also try connecting an iPod to an iPod listening dock. If the sound quality is optimal, but not so when connected to headphones, that would also indicate headphones as the cause of low sound quality. b> Reset the iPod Sometimes, simply resetting an electronic device such as an iPod, digital cable box or video game system will remedy the solution, as it gives the device a chance to reboot. Try resetting the iPod to remedy whatever sound problem you may be encountering, whether it's no sound or less-than-optimal sound. Not all iPods are reset the same way, so consult the user manual (either paper form or through Apple.com support) to learn how to reset a particular type of iPod. Adjust Sound Settings If sound quality is less than optimal, including too much bass, not enough bass, poor acoustics or any number of other issues, try altering an iPod's system settings to correct the issue. Do so by going to the "Settings" key on the main iPod menu, then going to "EQ." From there, test certain settings to see if they may correct the iPod's issue. EQ settings allow users to set their music to a certain type of genre (in terms of how the music is delivered), as well as lowering bass, increasing bass and altering acoustics. b> Make Sure Headphones Are Fully Connected As simple as it sounds, sometimes the reason iPods have no sound at all is because their headphones become somewhat detached from the device. Such is the case with physical activities such as exercising or doing yard work. If no sound comes through the iPod, make sure the headphones are plugged in all the way to ensure the lack of sound is not a simple oversight. Consult Apple Support Whatever the sound issue, if iPod users have tried everything possible to remedy the problem with no results, they can call Apple support or visit an Apple retailer to help further diagnose the issue. The issue could be a simple fix or might be so severe that purchasing a new iPod is the best course to travel.

Sounds like you blew out the sub-woofer in the headphones. You could replace them, or if you've only had them for a year (or less) you can use the warranty included and have them fix it. All you have to do is call them up and ship the headphones to them.

I have a Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass thats makes this really really loud buzzing earthy sound. It seems to happen spontaneously, in fits and starts, but particularly if the cable input on the bass is...


This sounds like either a bad guitar cable or a bad jack in the guitar. Possibly your friend is not as qualified to find these intermittent problems as needed? These jacks are really junky and often have riveting of the barrel come undone... especially if the retaining nut is overtightened. The LONG barrel like jacks are notorious for failing. You have all the information you need to solve this problem. First try a different guitar cable... (often they are broken or intermittent at the end where they flex). If that doesn't fix it, replace the jack in the guitar. Also verify that the conductive coating paint within the guitar is grounded. Sometimes the contact to it is destroyed when the volume control shafts or jacks become loose and they depend upon the shaft barrel to ground the paint.

LG flat screen TV speakers make a vibrating noise


I have this problem with my 37LG30.
They all seem to have the same factory flaw.
The plastic bezel and rear is vibrating against itself I have found.

Tonight, just now, I just took all the front bezel screws out,(from the back) loosened the other 4 big screws in the rear center(I don't recommend removing them)and loosened the stand screws also and tried separating the bezel from the back as I went around the set. This did not really help much except around the bottom where the noise/vibrating comes from-the speaker area.
The two plastic pieces are vibrating against one another.
The vibrating was coming from the speaker area without doubt.
The next thing was to try separating at the bottom where the speakers are with my fingers and a stiff metal nail file carefully..fingers seemed to work best for me.
As I separated the front bezel from the rear housing (at the speaker location)most if not all the buzzing/vibrating /distortion went away.
I then inserted small pieces of cotton (you can use felt, or similar I suppose) and buttoned it all back up;put the screws in
Almost all the distortion and speaker buzz/vibratingis gone except on very low frequencies.
good luck!

Sound vibrates


Test it by moving the bass and treble up and down. If the buzzing seems disappear at lower volumes with little bass and appears from one side only, it is probably a blown speaker on that side.

If the buzzing is apparent even at very low volumes or from both sides, it is probably an audio board issue. I am not certain if your model has a separate audio board or that functionality resides on the main board.

Maytag gas dryer noise when burner comes on


The noise you are describing is coming from the gas valve solenoid coil assembly. This is usually indicative of weak coil.
If this is a warranty situation, request a factory authorized certified technician to replace the solenoid assy. at no charge.
If you want to fix it yourself, be sure and ask us for instructions on replacing the part safely.
