Question about Bose On-Ear Headphones
I got these Bose on-ear headphones about half a year ago off of craigslist. They worked perfectly fine until about two weeks ago, when the right jugg stopped working. I messed with the headphone for a while and found, that it worked every once and then, depending on the positions, and angle in which it was in. So now, I am relatively sure that it is a wire problem on the inside!! I've tried opening them, but thats were my problem is. I can get past the foam cushion and open the two small screws, but the plastic cover is still attached somehow. I have tried sticking a needle into the small hole (it was my only idea) but nothing happened. Can someone please help me?? Also, I don't want to get them fixed or repaired since the headphones only cost me 60$. On top of that, I am currently in japan and the shipping would be too expensive

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..

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.

There are four screws that hold the cup together. Two at the top and two under the foam that goes between the ear pad and the plastic cup. Once I removed the four screws the cup and speaker came apart with no problem. Of course I did not see any issues with the soldering, so I have a bigger problem.

Try putting the output reciever into your ****.. Then put the earphones on. If you dont hear anything you might want to bring it back to the retailer and explain that your test proved them that it dont work.
