Question about Bose On-Ear Headphones
If twisting and jiggling the connection to your music player produces no results, then you're probably going to have to replace them.
CHECK FOR A WARRANTY even if you didn't buy an extra one, they came with one from the manufacturer.
However, assuming your warranty is expired and you don't mind cutting the cords, you CAN check to see if there's a short in the wire somewhere. You would need a multi-meter to test connectivity, a pair of wire strippers (or a sharp knife and steady hand), and electrical tape just in case you get lucky.
You would basically cut the wire connecting the right ear to the 1/8" jack, leaving at least a good 6-8 inches between your cut and the ends of the wire (so you have something you can splice back later). Then you use the multi-meter (set to test resistance) to check the section you cut out for connectivity: place the red terminal at one end of the wire and the black at the other. If the needle moves, the wire is fine. If not, then you've found the problem.
If you have enough wire left after cutting out the damaged part, then you can just splice it back together and tape it up. (It won't be pretty no matter what.) If not, the easiest thing to do would be cannibalize part of a cord from another pair of cruddy headphones.
BUT, let me say again: There is very little chance of this working. You may just end up cutting them to pieces and wasting time. Only attempt this if you are sure they are trash otherwise.

most head phones there two wires. those are the two that you most likly put together. if there is any metel mesh covering the wires. that has to be connected also.
