I bought my NC700 on December 2019 and since then after trying all the steps here 100 times and contact Bose Support (that dropped the call after one hour, by the way and never got back), I still have this issue. Unbelievable that Bose would allow it’s flagship product with such bugs and poor support. I need a solution. Other Bose apps (iOS 13) throw me to Bose Music and this never registers my product.

App doesn't recognise my Bose on my iPhone 11. Although the headphones connects to the phone.
I'm assuming Bose outsourced the coding to some high school people from India.

Latest (strange) issue....
When I connect my headphones to my windows (Dell) laptop using the advice on here (i.e. via the app), my internet speed goes to almost zero. Disconnect the headphones... back to normal. WHAT is going on.

I am having significant issues connecting my Bose 700 headphones to my app on iOS. I have the most updated edition of both app and iOS. I read through this forum: https://community.bose.com/t5/Around-On-Ear-Headphones/UPDATE-Noise-Cancelling-Headphones-700-App-se...
I have done everything from this forum, and the app still will not connect to my headphones. While my headphones and phone (iPhone 8+) pair, I cannot get the app to allow me to manage my headphones. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Premium Product, Premium Price. Horrific Engineering. Notice I said engineering not support. The support folks are good they are just hamstrung by engineering. The twitter team said they had referred this to engineering and no update. I tried SMS support and they offered to replace the headphones. Clearly the issue is with the app since it can't connect to their cloud. The problem is 7 months old + and still no resolution. Hundreds of people with the identical issue. Cmon Bose you used to be better than this.

how do we initiate a refund? i'm actually tired of dealing with this garbage. i'd rather go back to my old wired headphones, they work ALL the time, and i can switch them to ANY device and not worry. You know since apparently these headphones are only supported with smart phones, and apparently not with a computer as well.....

Same thing here, so I add my voice to this thread. Finally managed to update to latest firmware (took so long!!!) but still impossible to connect the app reliably. It randomly reconnects though. Can't find the pattern. To switch from devices it seems like there are "ghost" devices connected and you need to disconnect them with a one-second bluetooth button pressing. Then in iPhone or MacBook I can manually connect to 700.

Very disappointed. I purchased these as I was told they were the best on the planet for calls. The call functions are good, no better than the predecessor version for clarity, and in my opinion the previous version is more comfortable. I bought them due to having my wife working downstairs and the CQ35II only working in one ear for volume another solid issue to have but at least I had those for two or three years. The APP is atrocious it says it is not connected 8.5 out of 10 times, maybe more, its unacceptable for the price point and I can't think of anything other than the case holder for the cords that is better in this edition than the last. How almost a year after launch is the app still atrocious??? I have calls come through Skype on my laptop to headphones and then also calls to my phone to my headphones, and it is a train wreck because the APP is always "unable to connect" its like aol dial up from 1997 the old version let you toggle between each just on the phone, now you need the APP which doesn't work... Hoping I am missing something as I have only had them for two days but very disappointed.

I am not sure why you need to keep using the app as I only used this in initial setup. My iPhone/ iPad / Mac pick up the Headphones when I turn them on and then just use the button to swop devices.
if you have set up correctly and have 2 separate Bluetooth connections registered on each device you should be fine. I think the poor Bose instructions for set up cause most of the issues and why they don’t rectify the issue beggars belief.
The button isn't a good option when you have more than 2 devices. Plus this is a feature I paid for. It should work.
