Question about Bose QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones
About three months ago I got a pair of Bose headphones (not the buds). They worked great, and two weeks ago I had to get the wire replaced, but then they worked fine for a while.
Whenever I tried to play music, I couldn't hear out of my right ear.
I was wondering if its something that I can fix (and if so how) or am I going to have to buy another pair of $160 headphones?
Sound not coming out of one side of the headphone is an indication of connection failure, so that means you have to see where its 'broken' from, either inside the headphone on on the wire somewhere. Usually it happens at the jack, especially if you use an ipod as it tends to get moved alot in pockets, etc..
If this is the case, you could try to cut the wire from where you suspect its broken, and get a 3.5mm (or whatever the original size is) replacement (Do-it-yourself) jack from Radio shack or electronics store.
THen you would have to cut the wire, strip the the rubber coating off, and then if applicable, carefully strip the very thin layer of further insulation thats on the wire it self. Otherwise you would directly connect the cables to the prongs/connections located on the replacement jack. And depending on the jack you would screw it in place or soldier it with soldier and soldiering gun.
If its broken in the headphone or at the headphone, thats much harder to do as you would have to open the head/earphone case and soldier it that way and get it back together in one piece.
Next time don't buy bose headphones and by something cheaper, bose isn't that great, skullcandy is pretty good too. Sennheiser is the best though in my opinion. albieit its expensive too..
