You can try taking to a electronic repair shop to check if the cable is broken somewhere, if so, it can be repaired, if thats not the case bad luck. always take care of the headphones cables, never tie them tight always keep them loose.

It depends if the earpieces are faulty or if it is just a simple case of the cable being open-circuit (or a broken internal wire). It should not be too expensive to replace the cable if it is the problem, and you have an idea of the orientation of the wiring to the earpieces in it. Otherwise, since headphones are relatively cheap enough to buy, simply throw the broken ones out and buy a new set.

Always maintain proper care of these and other accessories when not in use - and never use chemicals or detergents to clean them.

Bose qc15 right side not working


If the cup itself is not cracked or broken, you can carefully detach the "snap on" cushion to expose the inner workings. There may be an inner cover which also can be carefully detached to expose the wire connections. After making repairs, reverse the disassembly process.

I've experience this issue on a different set of headphones and unfortunately it means that there is a split in the wiring in the headphone cables. The only option I found is to contact Bose for a repair. If you are under warranty then this is a quick and easy process, otherwise they request that you pay for the repairs to the headphones. Good luck and have a nice day!

I'm looking for stereo headphones for iphone but not Apple production. Which ones are best for it?


It really depends. There are many brands out there that compromise sound quality for its price. On the other hand, there are those brands that do the exact opposite by overpricing their products while having decent sound quality. I'd say that headphones somewhere in the middle of the two are the best as long as you not an audiophile.
I've had good experiences with the Sennheiser CX series. It's not overpriced and has decent sound quality.

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!!!

No sound from left ear been to professional told me not ecomonical repair, what is the problem do you think?


The best person to answer this was the professional who examined it.

Without the same opportunity I can only offer you educated guesses based on experience. The most likely cause is a fractured wire or a break where a flexible conductor meets a component. Unfortunately these are often non-repairable on modern headphones. Less common is that a speaker drive unit fails, but on units like yours the cost of these may also mean that the unit is uneconomic to repair.

Depending upon which country you bought them in, Bose headphones will usually have anywhere between a one and five year manufacturer warranty. If the headphones show no signs externally or internally of unauthorised repair attempts then contact Bose for after-sales support. Like many manufacturers they probably don't attempt to repair problems like these but just replace the item.

Note that if you're in the UK then the Sale of Goods Act means that the seller is liable for up to six years for any faulty products. Although you wouldn't expect a £8 set of earbuds to last six years, you'd certainly reasonably expect a £200 set of Bose 'phones like yours to last a fair proportion of that time limit if used non-professionally and if looked after as per manufacturer's instructions.
