Lost earbud

I’m sad to say that I talked to support today to ask if I could buy a replacement for a lost earbud (the dog may have eaten it!).  The answer was no and that with out 2 buds the one I still have will not work by itself.    I was told I could buy another set for near the retail price but mine are about a week old so that is not an option.  I would say to all to keep your buds on a leash.  They are expensive things to lose.  I couldn’t find in the literature where this was written about and to caution people about keeping the buds together.  It says you can use just one but doesn’t say that the other has to be nearby.   I’m not happy that I have wasted a ton of money on these.  I did like the way they were working before I lost the left one.  I expect more from Bose.

Re: Lost earbud

I feel your pain with your missing earbud. I thought I lost one too, but after an hour of searching I found it in the inside corner of a pillowcase. How it got there, is a complete and total mystery.  I with they had the tile app ability like the earbuds, so you can find them when lost. Then you’d really know if your dog ate it, or if it’s hidden somewhere

Re: Lost earbud

Good idea...I'll check again and underneath on the metal frame of the bed....who knows it could show up.  I don't think the dogs actually ate it.    Too bad the Bose people never responded !    🙂

Re: Lost earbud

I’m still waiting for a reply from the Bose people so I think the only answer is to buy 2 new ones but that isn’t in my budget.

Re: Lost earbud

The buds are paired, so you can't just get a replacement one to work with the one you still have.

 

If you get in contact with your local support (phone Bose in your country) most likely they will offer you the replacement they offer instead of out of warranty repairs.  So they will likely send you a new pair for a reduced price.
