Hi Vicky_W, I followed your suggestion and updated the firmware. For the first time, the headphone can be connected to the app. Thank you very much.
Now, there is a new problem. Before the update, I was able to connect it to my Samsung TV and had sound. After the firmware update, although the TV shows that it is connected to the 700 and the 700 is selected as the sound output, there is no sound from the headphone even I increased the volumn to max. What shall I do?
@boss2boss, please could you create a separate thread for this issue? This will allow us to keep posts of the same nature together? I am so glad that your headphones are now paired with the app.
Before I bought the headphone, I heard many complaints about such issue. I hesitated to buy it but I decided to give it a try. I almost returned it because of this issue. I think your company should make it clear on the product page that this widely complained app connection issue has been resolved.

Received a brand new Bose NC700 Headphones as a gift. Out of the box, i tried to connect the headphones via the Bose Music app on the iPhone. Went into a loop of "can't connect, try again later" for several hours. Almost gave up.
Then, I thought of updating the headphone's firmware and found this: http://btu.bose.com Make sure to use the provided USB-C cable that came with the headphones.
Lo and behold, the headphone connected automatically to the Bose Music app with no hassle...hope this helps. Enjoy all the features on the app.
This didn't work for me. What did work was downloading the Bose updater, connecting my Bose 700 headphones to my computer and uploading the firmware update. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled the Bose Music app. After that, I was able to connect my headphones.

I am also having the issue. I have
- reset the app
- forgotten the device
- reset the app
- cleared the Bluetooth history.
I can connect and get to the point where I am completing the secure connection but then I am asked to pair Le Bose nc 700. If a cancel it will not go any further and if I pair with this the setup fails
