Bose QuietComfort2 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones not working

All of a sudden, my headphones stopped working; the red battery light does not go on at all when I switch the headphones on. I have cleaned all the contacts and the battery compartment and tested a number of batteries which work in other appliances.

Can bose QC3 work without noisecancelling/battery?

No, the audio input must go through the active noise-canceling circuits that drive the speakers in each earcup. The noise-canceling circuits require a charged battery to operate. Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass these circuits and drive the audio input directly to the speakers.

Red light flickers for a few seconds on Bose headphones. They have been charged overnight, and were working well yesterday? I've cleaned the removable plug, and if I jiggle them sometimes they'll connect...

How old are they? It seems like 3 years is the life expectancy for any electronics these days whether it be notebooks, mp3's etc. Someone said call Bose and they will send you new ones for $75. Mine are doing the same exact thing yours are. Im calling tomorrow!

Bose Headphones only works on left side.

Have same problem. Play with the plug in the socket. I'll bet it you can occasionally get both working. Not a solution since it probably won't stay working. I have an old plug and it fails too. I'm afraid they did't make their plugs to the right tolerances. Used to work once. Annoying for this expensive a headphone.

Only the left earcup works, even if i change the wire, its the same. but noise cancelling works on both.

They will give you a new pair for $100, even if it has been longer than a year...

Noise concelling head hpones

Same here, my QC 3's stopped working, bought a new battery and nothing happened. Called Bose 1-877-210-3782 followed the prompts for "english" and "headphones". My QC 3's are 3 years old and out of warranty. Bose agreed to replace the headphones for $75 with free shipping. Better than paying a few hundred. Replacement set will have 1 year warranty.
