I've noticed a second or two of silence when bumping the headphone. In my case the battery was low and a fresh battery fixed this particular problem. Or maybe you have a poor connection.

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

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.

You will have to strip back enough wire length on the wires and also on the jack (or a good new and used jack with wires coming out of it) and wrap or solder them together, then wrap them in tape or coat with nail polish, and tape when they dry. Sometimes it just won't work, sometimes it can, just depends. Since the wires are usually multiwired and lacquer-coated, it is tricky and very hard. You have to separate the thin cloth fibers used for strength, and then scrape the lacquer off with an exacto knife, scraping the ends repeatedly. It's a delicate and hard operation. After the lacquer is off, wrap the ends together, or carefully solder if you can. Be careful soldering, since it's easy to burn up the super thin wires with too much heat.
These items are not designed or built to be fixed, or serviced, but sometimes you can get lucky. I used to do it, but it's a **** shoot whether it will really work, is tedious and takes awhile, and then there's no guarantee how long .
Good luck, wish there was better or easier news.

Severe squelch in left ear phone


The design of these headphones includes a microphone on the outside and on the inside of each earcup. The outside microphone detects outside noise. The inside microphone monitors what you are hearing and when it detects that the outside noise is present inside, the active noise-canceling circuits remove that noise. This happens fast enough that you perceive a significant reduction in the outside noise getting to your ears.

The airspace inside the earcup is a tuned chamber defined by the shape of the foam in the ear cushion. This is important because with the inside microphone in close proximity, but at a 90-degree angle to the speaker, the circuit must be designed to eliminate the normal feedback that occurs.

If the foam in the ear cushion has weakened/deteriorated to the point that it no longer has it's original shape, (in particular the lower half of the ear cushion), the size and shape of the air chamber inside of the earcup is directing more of the speaker sound toward the microphone than the design can compensate for causing audio feedback to occur. You are hearing that feedback.

On my QC-3 headphones, I can cause the feedback squeal in both earcups, with the left earcup being more sensitive to the shape change than the right.

It is probably time to replace the ear cushions. If so, they are available from Bose for $35/pair.

How to replace ear cushion on bose QC 3 headphone


The ear cushions are held on the earcup with six snap fasteners, three on each side. To remove the ear cushion, simply pull it away from the earcup carefully so that you do not break the plastic snap tabs.

It should not be necessary to pry the ear cushion off with a sharp object, but if you do, be careful. There is also a thin gasket seal between the earcup and the ear cushion, take care not to damage it.

If you need to replace the ear cushions with new ones, they are available from Bose for $35/pair.

Bose QC 2 Noise Cancelling Headphones the red light is on. Should there be a green light if they are working?


No green light for QC2, just red. If it's constant the battery is charged, powering the noise cancellation, and, if connected to an audio device, conducting sound. If the red light is blinking, the battery is losing its charge.

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!

Less sound on one ear than the other


Yeah, based on all of your problems, i would safely say that you have a blown speaker. Call up Bose at 1-800-999-2673. If the headphones are under warranty (1 year) they will replace them for free. If now, they will charge you $100 for a replacement pair, which is quite a deal considering that the headphones cost $300.
