Question about Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Consumer Headphones
The best person to answer this was the professional who examined it.
Without the same opportunity I can only offer you educated guesses based on experience. The most likely cause is a fractured wire or a break where a flexible conductor meets a component. Unfortunately these are often non-repairable on modern headphones. Less common is that a speaker drive unit fails, but on units like yours the cost of these may also mean that the unit is uneconomic to repair.
Depending upon which country you bought them in, Bose headphones will usually have anywhere between a one and five year manufacturer warranty. If the headphones show no signs externally or internally of unauthorised repair attempts then contact Bose for after-sales support. Like many manufacturers they probably don't attempt to repair problems like these but just replace the item.
Note that if you're in the UK then the Sale of Goods Act means that the seller is liable for up to six years for any faulty products. Although you wouldn't expect a £8 set of earbuds to last six years, you'd certainly reasonably expect a £200 set of Bose 'phones like yours to last a fair proportion of that time limit if used non-professionally and if looked after as per manufacturer's instructions.
