700 NC H.phones - negative experiences AND software/hardware feature requests/updates
- Negative experiences AND software/hardware feature requests/updates ONLY (not for pessimism; just to have a unified place where we can let Bose know what we EXACTLY dislike about the current state of these h.phones)
The body of this post was last updated on Sun, 7/6/19,
Have had these h.phones since 6/30,
Devices I use these h.phones with:
Late-2018 MacBook Pro (macOS Mojave version: 10.14.5),
latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro (iOS version: 12.3.1), AND
iPhone XS (iOS version: 12.3.1).
H.phones firmware version (according to the Bose Music iOS app.): 1.1.4-1144+be3bf4b,
Date of manufacture (according to the Bose Music iOS app.): 6/2/19,
Bose Music iOS app. version: 2.1.2,
My plan - keep updating the body of this post to reflect other users' input (if others comment on this post).
White noise while only ANC is in use,
Unstable Bose Music iOS app.:
shows h.phones not connected when they actually are,
flickering/unstable UI components, AND
many error banners in red.
Unstable bluetooth connection to iPhone XS and 2018 MacBook Pro,
iPhone XS "MY DEVICES" bluetooth list: both "H.phones Name" and "LE-H.phones Name" are listed. What are these and which should I select?
Underside rubber of headband slowly detaching from main headband metal frame (closer to the ear cups)
Scuffing/scratching of coating where the ear cups meet the headband metal frame due to adjustment
Thoughts/useful/common sense changes I would like to see:
no need for this to stay on after unplugging the h.phones from charge as:
it is easier to just hold the touch pad of the right ear cup to know how many hours of charge I have left than taking off the h.phones to look at the light to ESTIMATE the hours of charge left , AND
this uses energy. Please release a firmware update to only have the battery light on when the h.phones are charging.
should be solid white ONLY when the h.phones are FULLY charged (currently, according to the online manual, it is solid white when "medium to full charge").
charging cable (USB-C on both ends), AND
audio cable (3.5 mm on both ends).
A list of firmware versions and their release dates.
Adding the option to toggle between hours left and battery charge percentage left for the voice prompts/Bose Music iOS app. battery charge indicator. (currently, we are only told how many hours of charge are left in voice prompts and in the Bose Music iOS app.),
Simpler numerical firmware version designation
Adding the option to turn Voice Assistant off (currently, I can just select which of the 3 Voice Assistants I would like to use)
