Assuming the cord just does like any standard audio cable and transmits sound one way from the 3.5mm jack to the headphones then you could get some wire and solder it in at either end, then just use some stage tape to wrap around the join.

Were they normal headphones I'd just suggest some new ones, but noise cancelling are expensive IIRC.

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.

Headphones drop out


Cord is probably broken internally. If you are not good with wires and soldering and it is out of warranty, find someone who is or buy new headphones. You can manipulate the wire until it works and tape it in that position for a temp fix, otherwise the cord is shot.

Jvc headphones retractable cord


The JVC HA-NC250s are a new version of their previous model 100, and JVC claims that they will cancel up to 85% of ambient noise, coupled with better sound. In this case, JVC claims up to 16.5 db reduction at 150 kHz. These on-the-ear headphones are very lightweight at 5.3 ounces and are extremely comfortable. The head band has a reasonable amount of sliding expansion for bigger heads, and the oblong ear pieces themselves rotate and fold flat for storage. JVC uses memory foam on the earpieces, as well as double housing, for extra noise isolation. The earpieces have 40 mm neodymium drivers, which are the same size and type that the Creative Aurvanas offer.The JVC HA-NC250 noise canceling headphones. Note the ear-cushion instruction tab that explains how to replace the hidden battery.

The NC250s come in a semi-rigid black case with a dual airline-plug adapter, a mini-to-RCA phono plug adapter and a 4' detachable headphone cord. JVC includes one AAA battery, which should last approximately 50 hours. A simple sliding switch on the right side turns the noise reduction on along with a small red LED. Learning how to add the battery to the headphones required that I study JVC's user manual. The process involves having to remove the earpiece covering to get to the battery compartment, which isn't at all obvious.

Riley, it could be that the membrane on the cone of the speaker is damaged, if that were the case, then you will have to replace the headset with a new one; also check the wiring to the speaker there may be a bad connection to the speaker, if that is the problem, it can be solved by soldering the connection back to the the speaker. you can also squeeze the cord starting from the bottom and slide your fingers up the cord, listen through the headphones for any break inn signal, if that happens,cut the wire and re-splice the wire and tape the wiring with electrical tape. good luck.

One of the wires inside the cord must be broken since both channels can be heard only when manipulating the connection on the source end. Any fix?


Buy a new plug at Radio shack (for instance) and solder it on to your headphone, just cut the old/broken plug off at the base as to save the most lengt of your wire. Make sure to 'burn' the ends of the wires you are about to attach(1 or 2 second flame from a lighter) they are coated, but its hard to see, burning them removes this coat making the wires able to transmit the electrical current(music, in this case :P)....IF YOU DON'T WANT TO/KNOW HOPW to solder, then I would buy the cheapest headphones you can buy(Dollar store), cut the cord off somehwere halfway and reattach that to the cord on your headphones. MAKE SURE TO "BURN" the coating off the wires for this procedure to, or they will be together, but they wont make any contact!...I've done this many times and it has always worked great fror me!...Good luck.

Sound will only play through one ear at a time. I can jiggle the cord just right and get sound through both. Do I just need a new cord or headphone repair?


You should try a new cord or just check and see if the cable has become disconnected inside the cable. They should be able to fix this any were they have people that can do mico-soldering

If I jiggle the cord in the stereo outliet, the sound switches from left to right earpiece and has to be just right in the outlet to get both earpieces working at the same time.


If you plug the headphones into another device do they stay on solid?
The problem can be the cord/plug (headphones) or the socket which your plugging into. Socket might need re-soldered or replaced.

Noise concelling head hpones


Same here, my QC 3's stopped working, bought a new battery and nothing happened. Called Bose 1-877-210-3782 followed the prompts for "english" and "headphones". My QC 3's are 3 years old and out of warranty. Bose agreed to replace the headphones for $75 with free shipping. Better than paying a few hundred. Replacement set will have 1 year warranty.
