Question about headphones.

11 0
Hi gang,

I just got myself a Bose Quiet Comfort 15 headphones. These headphones are great but Im afraid that the thin cable can brake. Do you have any suggestions on how to protect this cable?
Is there some kind of wrapper that I can buy to make original cable more durable? Or may be there another thicker cable available?

I'll just get thumbed down if I get in on this discussion about Bose so I will keep my comments to myself.

I use to work there, and have a set of those myself. I never usually saw any of the cables come in broken unless usually mistreated or stuck in something and 'yanked' free. I've seen people put electrical tape around a fraying cable, but nothing on it preemptively.
I haven't worked there in about 3 years and I don't think they've created a thicker cable for it.

If you are referring to the part of the cable where the mini-jack connects to a device, they tried to slim it down so that it could fit properly in to the recessed ipod/iphone. The original QC2 had the secured rubber braces you would normally expect on headphones and I guess you can check with your local store to see if they have any old cables to spare.

The attenuator itself costs about $10 unless the price has raised since I've been there.

@acidbaby True, I'll probably get downed for it too but it's not often I get to use this old old info I've got.

I wouldn't worry too much unless you start to see it coming apart.
