    I  think the internal wiring has come loose.  At first the problem was intermittent.  Now it's dead.  No red light and no sound.   Has anyone figured out how to take the headset apart?

    After I left the headphone on for a while it started making a loud short noises. I switched it off. Later when I wanted to use my QC2 headphone it was working intermittently, i.e. 2 seconds on 3 seconds off. Does this device have a battery or a fuse? If so how can I fix it. Anoosh

I've noticed a second or two of silence when bumping the headphone. In my case the battery was low and a fresh battery fixed this particular problem. Or maybe you have a poor connection.

Does it keep turning on for a second or two then off for a second or two? Mine have been doing that, and I think it is in the left headphone when it gets bumped, but i don't know why.

How won't my new headphones connect with my I pod through bluetooth


In most cases this is because the new owner didn't read the instructions.

When you turn on Bluetooth on the iPod and click Search, you have to press something on the other piece of equipment to send the signal TO the iPod. Once they find each other, they connect automatically after that.

However, we have a problem. Your headphones Bose Quietcomfort Qc15 don't appear to be Bluetooth enabled! You have to connect with a lead.

Rattling in left earcup


Sounds like you have blown out the cone on the speaker. Have you removed the covering to see if the speaker in that earphone is intact?

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.

Only left earphone is working


You should return them to the place you bought them. They should be able to sought the problem out. You might need the sales ticket. Or visit the Bose website. They should have telephone number helpline.

Regardless of the audio source I connect my Bose QuietComfort 3 Headphones to, I can hear a small amount of static, especially at lower volumes. I have used another pair of headphones to test the devices...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Yes Sir, as you have cross checked the audio so other possibilities have been ruled out, the only problem can be with your Head Phone unit, usually what happens is somewhere from inside the wire get cracked, or short resulting in noise or static, so the solution is to replace the wire, but the unit is a delicate thing so I'll never advice to D.I.Y.

I hope you have a clear picture now,
Regards, Waqar.

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.

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.
