Question about Bose in-ear headphones - Black with black/white cord

1 Answer

My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones

The damage is between the jack and the spot where the two headphone wires combine. I cut out about six inches of badly chewed wire and attempted to splice the ends, but no sound comes through when I try to use them. Can they be repaired?

    Hi,

    I have about the same problem, but the break is between the right in ear headphone and the place where the two wires become one. I stripped off wire from both sides and connected them. I get sound from the left phone (no break), but no sound from the right phone. Any ideas?

    Thanks

Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.

It only works on on ear.


You may a poor mating of the jack and the plug. This could be an issue of size and shape or a bit of dirt or something making it not seat properly in the radio. A damaged wire would be also be a suspect; your hand would give a bit of conductivity around a break.

First, I'd check the audio device paperwork for the specs on the jack and make sure you have the right plug and try cleaning any dirt off/out of the jack. Since the Bose headphones do not have a swappable cord (at least the ones I have don't), if you suspect a broken cord, check if your unit is under warranty. If the headphones are out of warranty, you could consider opening up the unit and soldering in a new cord.

I hope this helps.

Cracked wires


I recommend getting some Shure headphones if you are into the in-ear style. In reality, better sound is achieved by larger older style headphones like a pair of Ultrasones or Sennheisers.

Fixed broken headphones but sound quality has plummeted


 it sounds as if the wires are wired wrong . yes it is best to solder the wires.all jacks are the same,yours will be stereo i believe. is the braid attached to the earth point, the two other wires attach to the centre of the plug and the other terminal point. these are right and left.
