right ear static and poor sound quality

Hi,

 

I bought QC35ii noise cancelling headphones through a retailer's online shop.  Since the beginning, the right ear emits static and has poor sound quality.  The static may reduce over 10 minutes or so nut it is still there and very noticeable. They also need to be within about 1-1.5m and line of sight to the device.  The quality is not close to the quality I had expected from a premium marque such as Bose.

 

I originally raised this with the retailer and they apparently contacted Bose and a firmware upgrade was suggested would resolve the issue.  It hasn't.  As it is, the limitations are so profound as to render the headphones close to useless.    Do you have any other suggestions?

Hi Marcsone, 

 

I am sorry to hear that you're getting poor audio from your headphones. I would love to do what I can to help. 

 

Have you ensured that the headphone cushions are securely connected?

 

Does this also occur when you use a cabled connection as well as a Bluetooth connection?

 

I would also suggest in rotating through the Noise Cancellation levels to see if this provides any improvements?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: right ear static and poor sound quality

Hi There Tegan,

 

The cushions appear to be attached securely, thanks for the tip.

 

I tried connecting with cable (so that it's not wireless) and thought for a moment this may have resolved the issue.  Sadly however the distortion, whilst lessened for a time was still there and increased with intensity from time to time.

 

I didn't get any change from different noise cancelling levels.  The interference has been so profound from time to time that my partner has heard it sitting next to me.   Given the different intensities of noise, perhaps there is a dry socket or similar on this one as other Bose products I have, have been excellent.

 

As they are still new, could I suggest replacement and you can test the headphones.
