So, I have read the thread concerning the problem with the left ear on the QC35 II not working and the possible problems/fixes. I have determined that I will need to send mine in for repair. The issue I have, is that I live overseas, and would rather not send my headphones to the local repair facility. I am trying to get the cost of the repair as if I were still living in the States. Has anyone in the community gone through this experience? Would you be comfortable with sharing the amount of the shipping and repair? Also, would you mind sharing your overall experience? This would also help with my decision to either send them stateside or performing it here. We have access to a Diplomatic Post Office, so, it is just like living in the States, it just takes a little longer, but to save money I could wait. Thank you all.
