Top critical review
Doesn't work. Not as advertised. I cannot recommend anyone buy this.
on 8 April 2016
I would ask for a return and refund, but this is not an option Amazon seems to offer after buying only two months ago. Neither could I find an option on my order to contact the seller, Amazon EU SARL to raise this with them.
Compared with an original Bose cable for which this is claimed to be a genuine spare:
- cable is thinner
- plug does not have Bose stamped into it
- wobbly fit gives left or right hand channel, but not both at the same time
Amazon claims it only supplies genuine Bose. Me, I'm heading to the High Street to try before I buy from a bricks and mortar Bose retailer (like the headphones themselves) and would advise anyone else considering this item to, too. Amazon's returns limit seems ludicrously short - so short I find it difficult to see how it complies with the Consumer Rights Act, 2015. I've bought a huge amount from Amazon but will think very carefully about doing so again. A couple of ££ and I'll take a chance, but for a tenner and up we all deserve better, especially when the claim is 'genuine Bose'. I'll happily review again should Amazon's customer service contact me about a refund, but so far I haven't found an obvious way to ask them from my order summary.
