The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Thanks for reaching out today and welcome to the Bose Community Forums.


I would love to assist you in getting this issue resolved, however, I really would need to know which specific headphones you have. You can use this page here to type in the serial number of your headphones. This will then tell you the specific name of your device.


I very much look forward to your response.

Re: BOSE Noise Cancelling Headphones - Audio Interruptions

@PMarkulin @Vicky_W (I do not work for Bose)

1. I may be wrong, but are you sure that it happens only with your particular Bose device.  I can't remember if I still get the announcement when a second call comes in while I am on a call.  I vaguely recollect getting it on both Bose speakers (Revolve) and headsets (QC35).

2. Do any 'experiment' and verify that it happens with just Bose products - do it by having someone call you while you are on call and do it with just the phone (no bluetooth at all) - try both internal speaker and the speaker phone.   If it does not happen on your phone - then it has something to do with the Bose

3. If you have an iPhone, make sure the speaker settings for the phone have "Announce Calls" set to "never"

4. If you determine it only happens when a Bose device is connected, I do not believe (unless Bose here states otherwise), that there is anything you can do about it since there is no option in the Bose Connect utility that has anything to do with incoming phone calls.
