Best to call and speak to a person.
Was my 2nd pair so I paid the difference and got the qC35s as a replacement.

Re: Rubber Cover on QuietControl 30

It seems even you got replacement, the problem will still remains. I suggested that we can send it to some repair expert like EEVBlog or David Rossmann on Youtube, see if they have some good suggestions that can help us and other Bose fans to permantly fix this issue. How do you think?

Re: Rubber Cover on QuietControl 30

It seems to be a problem with the silicone rubber cover. It absorbs sweat and salt from your body and swells. Nikon and Canon used to have the same problem with the same material on their camera body covers and they have since substitued a much harder rubber or plactic that no longer deteriorates. I believe that Bose has thousands of these and will not replace them because of the cost. It's cheaper to just keep replacing the headphone than to re-engineer the entire headphone covers. You can be sure on the Ver. 2.0 the material will be hard plastic.
