This may be your headphone jack (what you use to connect it to your ipod or speakers ect.). check the connection there, and if you see the wire became loose near it, that is most likely the problem. You can fix it! With a new headphone jack (available at the Source or Radioshack or other stores like that), and with some manual soldering (it's not too hard, I fixed my myself and I havn't soldered before.) you'll get those headphone to be as good as new. here are the steps to fix this problem.
1. cut your old headphone ******** and strip the wires. you should see two wires; one copper wire and one coloured wire (green or Red) on each cord. there is a total of 4 wires, two per cord.

2. Tin coat the wires. this means to burn the wires a bit (with the soldering iron) and put solder over them. this gets rid of the coating that is on the wires to stop them from shorting out in the cord and helps conductivity when soldering them onto your headphone jack.

3. there should be three holes on your new headphone jack. there should be two prongs left and right of the part you plug into the machine, and there should be one connected to the part that holds the wires once done.

4. connect the coloured wires (red and green) to the left and right prongs of the new jack and secure with solder. These are called the live (or hot) wires because they are the ones that send the signal that makes the sound.

5. connect both of the copper wires to the other hole and secure with solder. these wire are both ground wires, which are very important.

6. by the end, you should have connected four wires. two to the seperate prongs, and two to the third ground hole.

7. test your connection by trying to use your headphones. if it does not work (which may happen, don't get discouraged!) check your soldering. if it is touching any metal it shouldn't be, that means you have created a short circuit. simply burn off the solder (with the soldering iron) and try again.

8. keep trying until you get sound. good luck!

9. Once you get sound, you may want to secure the soldering job. you can either use two part epoxy and put this over your work, or you can tie a knot before you put the cover on you headphone jack. either will work just fine. Also, there sometimes are two metal protrusions that you can bend with plyers to help hold your chord in place.

10. enjoy your fixed, good as new headphones! Enoy hope this helped.

If this happens in more than 1 source, the only thing to do is call for a replacement. (unless you want to try to fix the cable) Bose will replace them with new ones for $60 if past warranty, or free if under warranty.

Left ear doesnt give out sound


there are two reasons for which your left ear head phone is not working:
1.If the insulation between the wires(copper leads inside the cord) fails....the two leads gets short circuited and it will stop working...OR some times the cord ll be looking good but inside one of the leads got cut then one of the headphones fails...
the solution for the above problem is dont wrap the cord...this ll lead to cut or insulation failure....
2.the speaker in the left head phone got failed...
dont forget to rate me...
good luck...

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.

Fixed broken headphones but sound quality has plummeted


 it sounds as if the wires are wired wrong . yes it is best to solder the wires.all jacks are the same,yours will be stereo i believe. is the braid attached to the earth point, the two other wires attach to the centre of the plug and the other terminal point. these are right and left.

My Bose QC2 make a weird noise when I move my head


I fixed the problem by putting the ear **** up against my face with my mouth inside of the ear piece, as if my mouth would've been listening to music. Make sure it is air tight around your mouth. I gently sucked air out of the air ****, and it fixed the problem!!! The speaker must of gotten dented in a little bit from to much pressure at some point or another by pressing up on the ear piece while they were on my head. The things are so air tight. Hope this works for you too. :)

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.
