May be a little late for you, but both of my pads burst open, and after trying in vain to tell Bose how **** their products were (because they are) I decided to fix them myself rather than give Bose more money, allowing me to keep using my headphones until I buy another pair (from another manufacturer). Anyway, you can buy new pads off eBay, there seem to be a few on there, or, to fix yourself as I did, you can just pop the pads off (they clip on), then take a needle and thread and stitch the pads back together at the seam. This is a bit tedious, and you obviously have to jam the foam in there while you're doing it, but mine are now better than new (because my threads are stronger than the apparent **** glue that Bose uses). Takes a little time if you're not a big sewer (which I am not) but it's well worth the effort in my opinion. Gives you a great like-new pair of headphones...until the next thing breaks, and trust me, something will, it's Bose!

Cable broken just as it enters the rubber grommet on the left headphone. On other brands of headphones, I could just feed the broken piece through and resolder. On the TriPorts, they seem to be crimped...

Never repaired Bose Triports specifically, so here's a generic guide:
First open the ear-cups to expose the left speaker, try wiggle the grommet out then feel where crimped part bulges, if a flat crimp, then squeeze it on the bulge to re-open the crimp and pull.
Otherwise your localized electronics component store should keep a suitable replacement cable and hopefully a new grommet.
If planning to dump the old cable anyway, try trim the old grommet away with a flat-nipper type of side-cutter .
You may even be able to re-use the cable.
Instead of exact grommet replacement you could try silicone sealant.

Stereo jack and speakers are usually standard.
Speaker right tab=signal (L or R)
Speaker left tab=common ground

I have the same problem. The first one that I bought last 1 year. I bought another one and the same problem has appeared today. I think this is because they are assembled in China. Cheap and low quality manufacturer that is sold at very high prices.

Try a bit of silcone grease in where it slides. You can get it from Maplin (UK) or Radioshack USA or that type of shop.
