Notice

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.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Bose 700 switch off start-up/shutdown sounds

Looking to see if there is a way to turn off/turn down the startup/shutdown and connect/disconnect sounds with Voice Prompts OFF.

They are pretty obnoxiously loud.

Thanks, nothing is more jarring than to have a loud "shutdown" sound jolt you out of the tranquil 700 experience.

I'm pretty used to the QC35s.

Re: Bose 700 switch off start-up/shutdown sounds

Please do pass on this annoyance; it's too loud for comfort and the min volume setting 'reached' 'bong' is deafening and infuriating.

This price range product should give the owner better personalisation and prevent 'user-anxiety'.

Re: Bose 700 switch off start-up/shutdown sounds

I realy like this headphones,

but as said, the shutdown/startup/connection sound is to loud.

I would preffer the option to change the sounds and to chande the loudness.

 

Hopefully Bose will add this feature in the next update

Re: Bose 700 switch off start-up/shutdown sounds

Yes, the startup and shutdown sounds are ridiculously loud and jarring. Major design flaw! Come on Bose, what are you thinking? How did this pass your quality control checks? Please quickly implement an option to switch this off (or at least lower the level). It ruins an otherwise very solid product.

 

six months since this was requested in the post above and still no action? Raise your game Bose software development team! Not impressed with slow turnaround.
