Bose headphones are a popular choice for people who enjoy listening to music or watching videos on their device. The comfort that they provide is unmatched by any other brand of headphone, which is why so many people choose them. Unfortunately, the battery life in Bose headphones isn’t as long as some might hope it would be. After about six hours of use, your battery will probably die out and you’ll need to change it with another one. This blog post will show how you can do just that.
If you notice that your headphones are swelling, take appropriate precautions. For safety’s sake do not disassemble the device below 25% capacity before taking care of it because there is a chance of dangerous thermal events if something goes wrong during repair work.
This guide will show you How to change Bose headphones battery with the use of an I Opener, but if it is too difficult for yourself then we recommend using a hairdryer or heat gun. You’ll need replacement adhesive and solder iron in order break down parts during disassembly and reattach them when reassembling your device again; make sure not to damage any wires together while doing this.
Here are following step you can change your Bose headphones battery life.
- Before you can slip off the left ear cup, grab it by its cushion and gently pull. This will release a clip from within which holds firm contact between your phone and enclosure for safekeeping.
- With the cushion held in place with clips, you need to repeat this procedure for all of them.
- To remove the left ear cup cushion, use a pen or any other thin object to gently pry up on one side while pushing down on another. The popped part of leather should detach easily from remaining straps with little force needed.
- Carefully peel off the protective covering to reveal your earbuds. Careful not to damage them in any way, carefully remove thin layer of cloth that covers on interior foam cushions for great sound quality.
- Remove the earbud using a hairdryer or heat gun by placing it on low to medium setting for around 15 seconds. After this, you should be able to get access to the screws underneath.
- After removing these screws carefully press down on plastic ring which holds earbuds in place. This will pop off the left side of your headphones, allowing you to access battery compartment underneath this piece.
- Now it’s time to remove the old battery by gently prying it with a small screwdriver.
- Turn the headphones over.
- Insert a pick into the gap between the plastic cover and the ear cup frame.
- The plastic cover of an ear cup can be removed. To do so, use the opening pick to pry up on it and then pull off gently in one motion or tug at different spots until you release it fully.
- Remove the plastic cover.
- You need to cut out a cardboard so that it covers the inside of your ear cup, but leaves room for batteries.
- Place the ear cup cover inside your left headphone.
It is important to start with low heat when opening the battery cover and slowly raise it up if necessary. For best results, we recommend 100 degrees Celsius or lower.
A heat gun is a great tool for soldering or shrinking plastic. When using it, make sure that you don’t aim the nozzle vertically onto an edge but only at an angle facing what would be its flat side so as not to melt anything inside of your device’s battery cover.
- The adhesive on your old battery is of the devil. Heat it up with a heat gun and you can get this thing off in no time.

- To remove your old battery, use an opening tool to pry up on the corner of its cover. This should be done slowly and with pressure so as not break any delicate parts.
- When you’re ready to remove your battery cover, slide the opening tool along its edge and loosen any adhesive underneath. This will create a small gap for removal of individual components like straps or modules.
- To remove and replace batteries, first use the spudger to gently pry up on one side of battery cover. This will disengage adhesive from bottom corners so you can slide out old ones easily without damaging it in any way; then apply pressure evenly all around until they fall off or pop free as demonstrated here:
- To remove the ear cups, use a spudger to carefully pry up on them and then slide them away from each other. Try not to push down too hard or you might end up destroying your battery.
- Carefully peel back the plastic cover from one earpiece and then gently disconnect it.
- In the final stage of de-soldering, you will remove any solder from around and on top of each individual wire. In this last step we’ll disengage every single pin with a disordering tool before removing it completely so there’s no chance for shorting out when handling your project again.
- To remove the battery cables from their terminals, use a soldering iron to melt them free. The best way is by heating up each solder joint and tugging on one side until it comes off easily with no resistance – just take caution not too near any metal pins or edges.
- To remove a stuck battery, insert the flat end of a spudger between its terminals and apply gentle pressure. This should release any residue on or around it that could prevent removal; once free, wipe off excess liquid with an old cotton towel until only dry paper towels remain visible before replacing in device for storage if necessary.
- In order to remove the battery, you must first carefully pry it out with a Utility knife or similar tool.
- To get rid of a battery, remove it from the device and then throw away in the trash. The first step is to hold down both sides on each side until you hear two clicks or see an orange light come up next to “Remove.” This will release tension so that when pushing upwards while still holding these buttons firmly together with one hand – voila! You should feel some give before removing your grip altogether which means there are no more catches preventing its removal yet another sign this methodology works well if done correctly every single time.
