Re: QC 35-I is Turning On By Itself
So, I was one of the guys who were able to fix the QC35 by bending the switch prongs back. After that, I was still keeping the headphones in my backpack with pressure on it, the only change I make was that I was putting them in the case reversed, as seen in this picture:
This way I was able to keep all the cables in the case, but prevent them from pressing against the switch. And it worked, for about 5 months, then the QC35 stared to develop the same issue again. As i'm gathering some experience in fixing the switch (for myself and a few others others..) I fixed it in a few minutes, but I see that the prongs are getting very weak, so they'll most probably break if I'll have to fix this one more time. So putting them in the case like above is apparently not sufficient if you keep them in the backpack with constant pressure on them. So I had another idea:
I had some IKEA FIXA stick-on floor protectors laying around (originally meant to be sticked on table legs to protect them from scratching the floor), so I took two big ones, cut a circle out from the middle, and sticked them on top of each other and into the case like above. So far so good... It keeps the case away from the switch even if I apply pressure on it.
Also, I did some research about the swich, in case I'd need to replace it, it's a C&K JS207011SCQNR switch: https://www.ckswitches.com/media/1422/js.pdf It seems Digi-Key and Mouser has them in stock, so in case it breaks or the tiny spring falls out etc. you can order a replacement.
