Estate sale score - Bose QC2 headphones

Went to an estate sale this weekend down the street. An elderly neighbor had passed away and her family were selling off her stuff before they put the house up for sale. Lots of tchotchkes and stuff you'd expect to be in a 90+ year-old woman's house. But I spied a Bose headphone case with a pair of Quiet Comfort 2 headphones in it. They looked horrible. I figure they'd sat for a long time, and the foam and the glue holding it had deteriorated. The ear cups and head padding were shot, and there was sticky black residue all over everything. But they were only $3.

So I took them home and ordered new ear cups and a neoprene cover for the head padding. Less than $25 on Amazon. Before replacing the ear cups, I got out the bottle of Goo-Gone and wiped it all down. Popped a AAA battery in them, and they're almost like new!

Bless you! I love recovering old tech, but this one seems extreme even for me...
