I own a Bose AE2 and have replaced the ear cushions. I now need to replace the headband cushion. Where can I find a replacement piece that is close to the original and does not wrap around the old part with a zipper? Are the AE2 and QC35 headbands interchangeable? If they are that would make things a little easier.
Thanks for the help!
Hey Teddy Frant,
Thanks for reaching out via the Bose Community.
AE2 headbands are not designed to be user-replaceable. There are somewhat delicate wires that run along the band to send audio from one side to the other so we do not recommend making modifications to the headphones. If you are having issues with the product, I would recommend reaching out to local support to discuss options for service. Details can be found here.

My option appears to be to purchase a reconditioned replacement. Can I send these headphones off to someplace to have the headband material replaced, at my expense?
I'm sorry but we do not replace these parts, if you book in an exchange with us you will get a brand new pair of headphones.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.
