Bose NCH 700 - Fast Forward function

Hello all,

 

Was wondering if Bose have any intention of bringing back the fast forward function that could be activated on the QC35 by double tap and hold or triple tap and hold.

 

This is a very useful function, especially for those of us that listen to audio books/podcasts.

 

best,

A

Hi Agora, 

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community! I appreciate the feedback on this function and I am glad to let you know that this is still a feature on the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. 

 

To skip forward simply swipe forwards on the right ear cup on the touch controls, to skip backward. If I have misunderstood and you are speaking about speeding through the track this isn't something that is currently available and I would love to raise this as a feature request for you. 

 

If any other users would also like to see this feature added to the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 please do let us know. 

 

Kind Regards,

Hector B - Community Support

Hi there,

 

Yes, I was in fact referring to being able to speed through a track - once/if available, could you please provide an estimate of when do you expect this function to be rolled out to the NCH700?

 

Thank you

Hello Agora,

 

The request has been forwarded to our development team, however, this does not guarantee that it will be implemented and I cannot provide any time scales.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Warm regards,

Charlotte G

Yes I'm also interested in this being implemented. Can we get a way to upvote features rather than having to get people to find a forum post and assent? Fast Forward is a staple feature of audio since the 8-Track player, it's sort of baffling it isn't standard and, realistically, likely won't be added.

Re: Bose NCH 700 - Fast Forward function

Many of the songs i listen to have long intros which i am no longer able to easily "fast forward" through as the forward swipe function simply skips the entire track. I am forced to pull out my phone and manually scrub forward through the track.

 

The QC35's had the ability to fast forward by double tapping and holding the middle button, but this is no longer possible on the NC 700's.

 

For reference the Sony WH-1000XM4 allow you to fast forward by swiping forward and holding your finger on the ear cup (rather than immediately lifting off).

 

This is also very useful for adjusting volume as the XM4's allow you to swipe up and hold to keep increasing the volume (rather than swiping up repeatedly to increase volume).

 

I will say that the NC 700's have a far superior touch pad that seems to be smoother and more responsive, so it gives me hope that Bose will be able to add additional gestures via an update.

 

Please implement this Bose!! Your new headphones shouldn't regress on features from their predecessors 😞
