I've not exactly solved my question, but I have managed to track down a free number for Bose for me to phone. Hopefully they will assist me from there.

Thanks for your e-mail, though I do not expect to part with any £££ for advice, which you can always track down for free, or guided.

Once again, thanks for your response.

Much Love & Prayers.

I just removed mine, soaked them in rubbing alcohol and now they are sterile and ready to use again. Oh, I forgot to mention they are now devoid of that sweat-like animal odor and garden soil - I am an avid gardener and long distance runner living in a hot, humid climate. You can also replace any damaged or worn out foam with similar products found in old cushions etc.
Hope this helps.

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.

EAR CUSHION


Sony parts suppliers sell replacement ear pads. Part no 2-320-280-01 about US$16 each (not pair).
Old ear pads slip off - pull gently to stretch the part that sits in the groove of the headphones until one side slides out.

The creative sewer can remanufacture new pads from thin soft leather by following the pattern of the old ones.
No cost fix is to scrape off the remaining peeling urethane leaving the soft fabric backing. Headphones will still work but the soft earpads should absorb high frequencies.

Ear pads falling apart


Please follow the proper instructions below

Ear cushion reattachment
If the ear cushions come off your headphones,
reattach them as follows:
1. Fit the mounting flange inside the rim of the ear cup.
2. Make sure it attaches smoothly and uniformly within the entire ear cup. (Do not remove the ear cup lining material).

Ear cushions may need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. To order replacement ear cushions, call 1-888-865-2700.

I have had my headsets for 3 years, they work well, I have just noticed that the left ear pad is detaching from the base. How do I get fixed?


The ear cushions are attached to the earcup with plastic tabs that snap into the plastic in the earcup. The lower snaps may be unfastened. Try pressing the ear cushion firmly to the earcup around the lower edge to refasten the snaps. Do not press in the middle of the ear cushion - you may damage the internal microphone.

If this fails, you will need to remove the ear cushion by pulling it off the earcup and inspect for broken plastic where the tabs are on the ear cushion or where the tabs attach to the earcup. If a tab is broken on the earcup, replacement earcups are available from Bose for $35 per pair.

If the plastic in the earcup is broken, you can try to repair it or you can contact Bose about getting it repaired or replaced.

I have had the bose in-ear headphones for a year and they were great at first and then all of a sudden the left earpiece stops working. If I move the part that connects the headphones to the ipod then it...


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!!!

Bose triport ear cups padding burst open how can i fix themcan iget new ear cups?


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!

You can have Bose replace the headset for you (new w/ 1-year warranty), but if it's past it's current 1-year it will cost you $60.Unfortunately Bose doesn't supply parts for that headset, but you could try using plastic adhesive as a low-tech fix. First Google search result for plastic adhesive:http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Windows/Doors/Product-Information/Products/Adhesives/Plastic-Adhesive/ .

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.
