Sound not loud enough

I am a medical transcriptionist and I just got a new pair of Bose IE2. I plugged them into my laptop and I just do not get a loud enough volume. I have checked and the volume on the computer is turned up as high as possible. This is the first pair of Bose I have used, I usually use Koss over-the-ear headphones and the sound is very loud in them, just not as good clarity. Any idea on how to make the sound louder?

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: 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

SOURCE: The left earbud of my Bose in-ear headphones doesn't have sound

You probably need to replace the stereo plug on the end that goes into the jack. Most of them are molded on unfortunately but it can be done with a new jack and some soldering skills. There have been lots of people with the same problem on this site so there are already some good explanations of how to do this on here.

Bose cinemate speaker system suddenly gets very loud why?


If the unit is around 5-6 years old or less, you have a bad Rotary Encoder. It is an input to the microprocessor IC(a computer within your Bose). If you would like to inquire about repairing your Bose, please visit me at my website, audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly from the site.

Iis there a volume control on toshiba tecra a2


If it's plugged into a external speaker system, doesn't the external speaker system have volume control? In the Tray Notification Area, right click or click on the Sound Icon, adjust volume OR open the Control Panel and select Sounds Icon. Laptop aren't known for great sound, I use this: http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/shop_online/digital_music_systems/sounddock_systems/sounddock_portable/index.jsp

$78 plus to replace via Amazon. Parts too expensive. Do it yourself fixes would not repair cosmetic damage. Young fellows like to look spiffy. And DIY takes time and may or may not work.

The internal speakers aren't loud enough for listening to movies.


This is somewhat common with laptop computers as the speakers are tiny and if there is much background noise, the sound is not loud enough to hear properly. I would recommend that you pick up a $10 pair of ear buds that you can plug in and put in your ears to hear the sound. These can be purchased at your local Walmart store.

Is there anyway to fix a blown Bose Speaker (201)?


The only 2 solutions are: 1. Just find an equivalent driver to replace. Re-wire new driver speakers into the enclosures. The old 201s may have had decent drivers (although probably paper cone) for back then, but now just about anything will sound as good in those particular cabinets.
2. Call Bose and exchange them for current 201 speakers (higher clarity more powerful). Bose will give you about 30-40% off I believe on a series 5 model. They now pay for inbound and outbound shipping as well.

Speakers only play cd's


Please look in your Start Menu, go to Control Panel, then into Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices. See near the left, and select Advanced Volume Control. Turn up the inputs for the other sounds that you want delivered out to those speakers. Later adjust the levels a little higher if at first the mix of the sounds is not quite loud enough from one or several of the sound sources. Also in Control Panel, Sounds, you can mute out or eliminate annoying unwanted system sounds such as sounds for minimize and maximize a computer window, and the click that occurs when the computer does Complete Navigation -which it does a lot. Go into Sounds and Audio Devices, and into the Sounds tab. Select the Windows Program event such as default beep and click pick NONE from the sound chooser scroll bar that is just below. Scroll up to NONE to eliminate that sound. Now your overall sound experience will be more pleasant, without unneeded sounds playing loudly, unexpectedly.

Horrific bone crunching sound from clock radio


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. Before you spend the big bucks on repair or a Bose "upgrade", you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.
