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.

Bose 700 Headphones Wired Connection Extremely low sound quality

Hi team,


Does any one has any idea why Bose 700 ANC headphone sounds low quality on wired cable (No or very little Bass) compared to wireless connection? Is that meant to be that quality or is that faulty with some units only?

Hi Sudeep.


Welcome to the Community! Thank you for your post.

It is estrange that you are experiencing the issue. Please try the following:


- Check if the cable is seated on ports from the headphone's and the source's side.


-Try different sources and see if it happens to all.


-Try using other cable.

Re: Bose 700 Headphones Wired Connection Extremely low sound quality

The other question I would ask is: When using the cable are the headphones turned on?


The reason I ask, is that the headphones still work passively (meaning not powered) over cable, but will lose the Noise cancelling and equaliser, meaning that they will sound worse than when they are powered.
