Converting My Bose Noise Canceling Headphones into Bose Bluetooth Headphones

Hi,

Following a very long a noisy flight last year I was given a early birthday present of a pair of very comfortable Bose Noise Cancelling headphones.

The Bose Quiet headphones are a joy to wear and the sound quality is really very good.  But like all corded headphones they can be a bit of a pain when your stuck at the end of an aisle on a plane, train or bus and other people want to move around.  I don't know about you, but it also appears that the more time I put into sorting out the cable the more tangled it is makes itself when I try to move.

So I decide that I'd had enough if it and decided to use the 'Bluetooth Charm' against the cable snake and for only few pounds it works, on planes, trains, automobiles and even in bed.  At last no more strangling cable snake and the Bluetooth reception is fantastic loud over 10+ metres away.

The solution to convert my Bose Headphones to Bluetooth turned out to be remarkably cheap and simple and it really works great with hours and hours giving high quality sound from many bluetooth sources.  It works particularly well with my Bluetooth mobile sound players i.e. iPhone or iPad or any other Bluetooth Android Device or phone.

I've put together a really simple video of instructions, showing the bluetooth adapter and the specialist Bose replacement cable I used in this fixed1t fix.

Here is the Amazon UK link to the Bluetooth Adapter:



and for the Bose cable I used.



Please check make sure you purchase the cable for your particular Bose Headphones and that your Bose headphone cable is detachable.

He are the links to Amazon USA link for the Bluetooth Adapter:




and the link to Amazon USA link for the Bose replacement cable:



Again, please check make sure you purchase the cable for your particular Bose Headphones and that your Bose headphone cable is detachable.

With the video and the links above you should have your own Bose 'Bluetooth' Headphones within minutes of the bits arriving.

Here is the link to my youtube video:



If you don't fancy doing it yourself then you could always sell you current Bose headphones on Amazon and purchase the latest Official Bose Bluetooth headphones.






As you can imagine creating these useful videos takes time, so if you find this useful please consider making a small donation using the Donate button at the top of the right hand column. Even a few dollars really helps to justify to those indoors the time I spend on these 'it's a great excuse' :-).  But if you don't wish to donate thats fine but it would useful if you could give the fix a thumbs up and pop back to leave a message.

Many Thanks

Opening A NAVMAN S90i GPS And Replacing The Battery

Some time ago I did a popular youtube video showing people how to get into the NAVMAN S90i GPS Unit to replace the battery,

The Navman was a couple of years old but still worked well, and having the camera built into it with auto GPS marking was great for those trips when you wished you could remember exactly where you were when you took the photo.

A couple of users have had difficulties finding a battery so I've added a couple of links here for Amazon UK

Replacement Battery Navman S30. S50, S70, S80, S90, S90i

and for Amazon USA

Battery for Navman S30. S50 S70 S80 S90 S90i

Below is a link to the youtube video, if you haven't come here from youtube to get the battery links.

As always, the risk for all repairs is your own, ensure you have the time, the patience and tools to do this effectively and safely.

Music by FIXED1T the track is called:

" Flight of Fancy "

Replacing the internal CD drive on the Roland MV-8000 with a DVD drive

If you have an Roland MV-8000 thats still using an internal CD drive then you could be missing out on accessing thousands of DVD samples.  The whole job is really easy to do and took me around 15 - 20 mins with just a simple cross headed screw driver and a little care and patience.

One of my youtube users ask for an amazon link and I found this at amazon UK

Panasonic UJDA-770 DVD-Combo drive

and this at Amazon USA

Panasonic DVD/CDRW UJDA770 UJDA760 UJDA750 laptop drive

I hope you find these useful.  Here is the link to the youtube video.

This is a really simple upgrade, but as with all repairs there is a Danger Of Death to you and the machine if you open it up and start messing around inside. I'm fine doing this myself as my mother told me 'grow up stupid' so I did.

Doing this is your own decision and I take no responsibility for showing you how it can be done.

As it is, I'm really pleased with the result, cheap simple cheerful and satisfying for me.

The Ambient Music " Darwin " accompanying the piece is by me fixed1t.  If you want to listen to the whole piece there is a great little video here on youtube of the Galapagos to accompany the music.  The video and the volcanic scenes it shows is very primordial.  Please listen on a good system with bass, especially if your feeling a bit constipated, as the subsonic's can move a tank out of mud.
