Re: Headphones power on automatically
An update from my side:
I have tried solving the problem myself. Disassembled my headphones as recommended here and reached the switch mechanism, but that was actually not the source of my problem like I assumed before. Although it actually gave me hope, because headphones worked after that for some reason. But it was a false hope. They died after 10-20 minutes. Also during this time I have realised battery was acting strangely - either failing or discharging really fast, went to 20%, then 10% and then died. Bose, is the battery meant to die after 10 recharge cycles? 😄
Also, a very smart solution to make the battery irreplaceable and only offer customers buying new headphones instead, great job :).
Sorry for using the wrong thread, but maybe this would help other people who also mistakenly assume their issue is because of the switch (my problem is that headphones wouldn't turn on at all, or would turn on and immediately switch off, so first I assumed it was the switch causing this).
Anyway never ever in my life me or any of my friends are going to buy any other Bose product. Very poor support and treatment of customers. Quality is probably good generally, but then so many small things fail, design flaws or quality issues, which make headphones basically useless. Technical support basically is being a sales point (?), not offering you a solution, but rather offering you to buy a new pair of headphones.
Sorry for complaining too much, just feels like money spent in the worst way possible 🙂
