Bose Quiet Comfort headset- one earphone rattles

I have to position the headphones exactly right and orient my head so that I do not hear the "rattling' or "rumbling" in the right earphone. Also If I wear my glasses the rumbling is worse. It seems that the earphone cushion has to be very specifically placed in order to not rattle. I have had the headset for a few years and this is somethign that has developed and was not present when they were new.

Go to support on the Bose website. Enter your model number and click on trouble-shooting. They should have your solution there.

SOURCE: Bose in-ear headphones sounds cuts in and out

Well, here's a temporary fix until you guys can get new ones. Pull the plastic stopper about halfway up the phones. Then loop the bottom of the entire headphones through the circle that the plastic stoppers create. When you have a tiny loop, pull the upper stopper down and tighten it. People said that they needed to angle the cable in a certain way, right? Well, this fixed mine for now. Just keep it in that position until you can get a replacement or they come up with a permanent fix.

SOURCE: My right earphone won't play

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..

Sounds like you have blown out the cone on the speaker. Have you removed the covering to see if the speaker in that earphone is intact?

One side of my Bose quiet comfort on ear headphones isn't working...can you help?


This is a problem that has to do with the wiring of the headset and any attempt to open it up to work with it may damage your headphone further.
It might require you to open up the part that doesn't function and ensure that the wires are properly connected and to make sure they are not jamming one another as this can cause failure in the speakers.
If you are able to go through the wiring and there is nothing wrong, it is therefore the speaker at that part of the headset that is not working and has probably exceeded it's lifespan and needs to be changed.
If you do not want to go through all these stress, you can send it to a technician.
please comment if you need more information.

You should return them to the place you bought them. They should be able to sought the problem out. You might need the sales ticket. Or visit the Bose website. They should have telephone number helpline.

The left speaker for my quiet comfort 2 headphones is starting to give this static sound. I've unplugged all the cords so I know it's the speakers fault. It also sounds like it's coming from the noise...


My right speaker went out so I took it apart and the speaker is bad, so I'm going to try to replace it with this one from Digikey (Part #GF0401M-ND) for $3.28. Looks identical and is identical in size. I'll try to post the results, but I will probably forget to, which is why I'm at least posting the part number which I think is an exact match.

Left earphone just stopped working -


I just solved my problem. My left earphone wasn't working or would work some of the time with it cutting in and out depending on my head position or if I moved quickly. What I did follows:
1. Took ear pad off
2. Took black liner off of the inside of earphones. Glued on 2 spots.
3. Below the silver band of material is a clear plastic lining that covers the speaker.
4. I pressed that clear liner to see if it helped make the left earphone work and it did.
5. I had to fiddle with it to get it perfect but it worked for me.
I'm sure this would void any warranty and work on your own headphones at your own risk.
