I received my Headphones yesterday but I struggling to get it to connect to Bose Musice App. Its able to find the product; asks for Accessory then spins and says Connection failed.
I am able to use the headphone with my iphone and mac but doesnt work with Music App.

Thank you again for your contributions to helping us locate the issues.
Me too. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, removing the 700's from my product list, forgetting Bluetooth, then reinstalling everything. It appears to add my 700's back just fine, I was able install firmware update, but when that finished it "loses connection" and then I'm not able to connect to the app again. Just says "failed- try again'
I hope someone from tech support can weigh in.
Ok found the solution.

This only fixed it temporarily for me. Once I tried to reconnect a second time it fails. The app is recognizing that the headphone is there, but it won't let me get it connected to it so that I can manage within the app. If I turn off the headset, the app says the headphones are "not available"; then when the headphones are powered on again, the "not available" text disappears than then it offers the option to "connect"- which fails.
Frustrating bugs so far!
Thanks for getting back in touch to let us know. Can I just confirm that you have tried the troubleshooting other users have suggested earlier in the thread? I would also recommend that you try a product reset, please follow the steps below:
Are you an Android user? If so you need to make sure you have location services enabled. I would also be curious to see if the headphones connect to another device, if you have one handy to test.
I hope this helps, please let me know how you get on!

I'm having this exact same issue. I did what Yashwant suggested as well mutliple times. After disconnecting in bluetooth and reconnecting, mutliples times, deleting the product from the Bose Music app and reconnecting it, I finally got it to connect. I then finally got through setup and it automatically started an update. Got all the way through the update and the headphones disconnected from the Bose Music app and sent me to the My Bose screen where it continues to tell me "Connection Failed. Please try again." This is unbelievably frustating.
So I attempted the reboot- which is tricky- if I even got it to work. (after holding a power button for a long time blue light never flashed)
I'm wondering if it's an ios issue- my ipad mini4 seems to work better with connection. My iphone XSMax (running 12.3.1) is having the most issues. Interesting, if I attempt to add another Bose device (+ sign in music app) and I skip all the screens to add the device, it goes back to the home screen with my headphones connected!
Btw, pausing one device and beginning playing on a second device is not functining without reactivating bluetooth button...
I may not be able to tolerate these bugs unless a fix comes SOON.
