Re: Bose QC 35 ii firmware 4.5.2
Just here to add my experience.
I have used Bose headphones for almost 5 years now. I have had about 2 or 3 pairs of QC25s, and two weeks ago I decided to switch over to the QC 35 ii's.
Somewhere down the line, my headphones also upgraded to the latest software. Currently running 4.5.2. Since then, the ANC has been horrendous. I can hear all the conversations around me in the office. There's also no difference between the High and Medium ANC modes.
The noise cancellation is significantly worse than my QC25s, so I will either be switching back or switching to another brand. I will be returning these headphones, because with the current ANC performance, these headphones are worthless to me. It's a shame, because I really enjoyed the wireless aspect of the QC35s.
I am honestly very disappointed in Bose for:
1) Not fixing this issue. It is very apparent that this is issue is real. And it's been here for over four months.
2) Not allowing users to downgrade to previous firmware issues.
This just makes me think this is all a ploy to get people to buy the NC700s. If that is the case, shame on you Bose.
