IF you are like me, you bought the MIE2 headphones a while back and misplaced the accompanying paperwork. Well now I need the serial number, and have run into two problems.
1. Where is the serial number?
2. Why wont the Bose site let me register?
To address the first problem, a quick search yielded nothing. I started poking around the Bose website and found the product selection page that has a small input field at the very bottom. Next t the input field is a link that will open a small popup window showing where the serial numbers for various devices are located. For the MIE2 and similar in-ear headphones, under the silicone ear tip (mine was under both) you will find a “4-digit date-of-manufacture code”. TADA!
On to the second issue. Registering the product on the Bose website proved to be another issue. Try as I may, it kept telling me that the serial number was invalid. back and forth to the little popup window to make sure i wasn’t missing anything, i noticed that all other serial numbers usually came in a 17 digit format. EUREKA! prepend 13 0’s to the serial number. voila, problem solved. Registration complete.
P.S. If you’re like me, you will need to replace the Silicone earbud tips when they get lost after washing the headphones, Amazon sells 3 pair for less than 5 bucks and you get free shipping on orders over $25!
