    I have a new pair of these and the sound is out in the right ear. I think its in the jack connection. This seems to be a common problem. Suggestion....dont buy these.

    Same problem here with the right earbud....

  • Anonymous Apr 10, 2009

    Mine is the left ear and sometimes the right. I have already sent one pair back for similar problem. Will try to send this pair back as well. If I had known this was such a problem, I would have thought harder and longer about whether to purchase these headphones in the first place. So sad, expected better product since my husband still uses a BOSE radio from pre-CD era.

    I have the EXACT same problem. I have sent one pair back because the left earbud cut in and out and now my replacement pair has begun doing the same thing. I LOVE these things because they are the only ones that fit comfortably in my ear. Luckily I didn't buy them myself, I won them as a door prize,

    As you turn them on, it sounds like a record being scratched in right ear only.

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.

I had mine for about 5 months and I was able to get a replacement from Bose in 4 days.

A quick fix is to just tie a small knot at the top of the wire where it meets the earbud. just loop the earbud over itself and the tension should keep it from cutting out.

I just brought mine into the Bose store, and they were surprised that the headphones gave me problems within 6 months of buying them; they gave me a new case, new headphone covers, a new pair of headphones, everything. The best part was when I told her I probably didn't have the receipt anymore, and it was no problem at all, perhaps because the problems started so soon; but how could she know? I could have found them on the street. Props to Bose.

Yeah I just started having the same problem. My left ear bud doesn't work at all, unless i'm holding the cord in a certain position. I'm not rought with it or anything, and it's really frustrating because they're pretty new.

I've experience this issue on a different set of headphones and unfortunately it means that there is a split in the wiring in the headphone cables. The only option I found is to contact Bose for a repair. If you are under warranty then this is a quick and easy process, otherwise they request that you pay for the repairs to the headphones. Good luck and have a nice day!

If your headphones are in warranty (under a year old) Bose will repair or more likely replace them with a new pair. I am now on my forth pair or Bose in-ear headphones and experienced the same problem with an ear piece stop working. I have to say Bose customer service has been fantastic and has replaced each pair. Every new pair is then covered by a new full years warranty. Unfortunately my fourth pair has just gone wrong with the same connector problem. Bose again have said they will replace as they are in warranty. I have been told if they are out of warranty they will offer a new pair at a discount price of £50 instead of £80. However i think that if my new pair go wrong out of warranty i will have no option but to look at alternatives.A Pair of headphones that cost £80 should last more than a year!!!

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.

My right earphone won't play


Sound not coming out of one side of the headphone is an indication of connection failure, so that means you have to see where its 'broken' from, either inside the headphone on on the wire somewhere. Usually it happens at the jack, especially if you use an ipod as it tends to get moved alot in pockets, etc..

If this is the case, you could try to cut the wire from where you suspect its broken, and get a 3.5mm (or whatever the original size is) replacement (Do-it-yourself) jack from Radio shack or electronics store.

THen you would have to cut the wire, strip the the rubber coating off, and then if applicable, carefully strip the very thin layer of further insulation thats on the wire it self. Otherwise you would directly connect the cables to the prongs/connections located on the replacement jack. And depending on the jack you would screw it in place or soldier it with soldier and soldiering gun.

If its broken in the headphone or at the headphone, thats much harder to do as you would have to open the head/earphone case and soldier it that way and get it back together in one piece.

Next time don't buy bose headphones and by something cheaper, bose isn't that great, skullcandy is pretty good too. Sennheiser is the best though in my opinion. albieit its expensive too..

Bad connection


It sounds like you have two problems. One is your ipod earphone plug ( phono plug ) needs replacing, and # two is your headphone plug needs replacing.
