This may sound strange, but try slipping a piece of cotton on the area where the bare conductor runs through the plastic covering of the speaker (as suggested here). The left speaker of my - 39c682c9-7c92-4e14-963e-7b6eb35c074d.jpg

    I had the same problem, this worked great! Also very easy to do. Disappointed that these expensive headphones broke after less than 2 years

Hi,
This was caused by bad solder joints in the left speaker. You have to take it apart then re-solder the two wires connected to the speaker. That will solve your problem.
Thanks for visiting Fixya.

There is problem with wiring in one of your speaker... this usually happens to all of us...anyway the solution is to solder the wire properly back into the speaker if you are goos with soldering.....otherwise you could do it in Bose service center also. nothing much to worry about best luck!

Boss oethe left side of my headphone is stop working


Hi,

The most common cause for this, is a loose wire connection to that speaker (as opposed to the speaker being faulty).

Has anyone pulled the cord too tight or tripped on the cord? If yes, then the internal wire connecting that speaker has an internal break somewhere.

Try the following:

1) Plug headphones into music device and turn on.
2) Gently press the wire 'in' at the left earpiece (or wiggle at the earpiece end). If sound returns intermittently, then you have n internal wire break in that end of the cord.
3) Gently press the wire 'in' at the plug where it connects to your player (or wiggle the cord at the plug end). If sound returns, then there is an internal wire break at this end of the cord.

In the case of broken internal wires, it is possible to repair.

Although very fragile, it is possible to resolder these tiny wires (you'll have to burn off the enamel coating around these wires first) back onto their respective connections, or onto a new plug.

Good luck....

One of the auriculars isn't working


Hi, what makes the earpiece not working, is that the wire inside the speaker area where you put inside the ear is faulty.

Loose the head of that small speaker, you will see the wire that has removed, use a soldering iron and a lead to fix it back.After fixing back, you can start using it again.

have a nice day.

Left ear doesnt give out sound


there are two reasons for which your left ear head phone is not working:
1.If the insulation between the wires(copper leads inside the cord) fails....the two leads gets short circuited and it will stop working...OR some times the cord ll be looking good but inside one of the leads got cut then one of the headphones fails...
the solution for the above problem is dont wrap the cord...this ll lead to cut or insulation failure....
2.the speaker in the left head phone got failed...
dont forget to rate me...
good luck...

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!!!

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.

I lost the sound on the right ear of my bose around-ear head phones and I checked the lines and nothing is cut, the left ear is working perfectly. Please help!


This may be your headphone jack (what you use to connect it to your ipod or speakers ect.). check the connection there, and if you see the wire became loose near it, that is most likely the problem. You can fix it! With a new headphone jack (available at the Source or Radioshack or other stores like that), and with some manual soldering (it's not too hard, I fixed my myself and I havn't soldered before.) you'll get those headphone to be as good as new. here are the steps to fix this problem.
1. cut your old headphone ******** and strip the wires. you should see two wires; one copper wire and one coloured wire (green or Red) on each cord. there is a total of 4 wires, two per cord.

2. Tin coat the wires. this means to burn the wires a bit (with the soldering iron) and put solder over them. this gets rid of the coating that is on the wires to stop them from shorting out in the cord and helps conductivity when soldering them onto your headphone jack.

3. there should be three holes on your new headphone jack. there should be two prongs left and right of the part you plug into the machine, and there should be one connected to the part that holds the wires once done.

4. connect the coloured wires (red and green) to the left and right prongs of the new jack and secure with solder. These are called the live (or hot) wires because they are the ones that send the signal that makes the sound.

5. connect both of the copper wires to the other hole and secure with solder. these wire are both ground wires, which are very important.

6. by the end, you should have connected four wires. two to the seperate prongs, and two to the third ground hole.

7. test your connection by trying to use your headphones. if it does not work (which may happen, don't get discouraged!) check your soldering. if it is touching any metal it shouldn't be, that means you have created a short circuit. simply burn off the solder (with the soldering iron) and try again.

8. keep trying until you get sound. good luck!

9. Once you get sound, you may want to secure the soldering job. you can either use two part epoxy and put this over your work, or you can tie a knot before you put the cover on you headphone jack. either will work just fine. Also, there sometimes are two metal protrusions that you can bend with plyers to help hold your chord in place.

10. enjoy your fixed, good as new headphones! Enoy hope this helped.

My Bose QC2 make a weird noise when I move my head


I fixed the problem by putting the ear **** up against my face with my mouth inside of the ear piece, as if my mouth would've been listening to music. Make sure it is air tight around your mouth. I gently sucked air out of the air ****, and it fixed the problem!!! The speaker must of gotten dented in a little bit from to much pressure at some point or another by pressing up on the ear piece while they were on my head. The things are so air tight. Hope this works for you too. :)

Bad connection


It sounds like you have two problems. One is your ipod earphone plug ( phono plug ) needs replacing, and # two is your headphone plug needs replacing.

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.
