Re: Bose Soundlink II around ear wireless: Microphone not working
Well I paired the headphone with both my iPhone 5 and iPhone Xr and I am still having the exact same mic problem on both devices. iPhone 5 comes with the older bluetooth 4.0 while iPhone Xr which came out less than a year ago comes with the latest bluetooth 5.0 technology. So i doubt it has anything to do with bluetooth version as it does not work with even the latest bluetooth version, unless someone is trying to argue that even the latest bluetooth version is not good enough for this pair of headphones
btw @r1zd1z your post above sounded a bit like victim blaming
Um...okay. My apologies. In no way was I attacking or blaming you for anything. The point still stands in that if the hardware does not support a lesser version, it won't work.
I can't say why it wouldn't work for the BT 5.0, because, in my experience, with any type of device that was less than BT 5.0, it would not work. As you may have read in my above posts, I did exchange my original and return the next pair of headphones, but it did not change my opinion of Bose that they don't make a good quality pair of headphones.
In my experience, the 5.0 worked. I may be wrong with this conclusion, but in the evidence and "data" I "collected", it proved to be true. I replied to this because I try to see that there is always a reason for things. No, the mic problem is not designed, but it could be an unfortunate side effect of more efficient design with the appropriate programming.
Yes, it is annoying, and yes, if I still had the problem, I might not have the headphones, although I did conclude that the comfort outweighed the mic flaw, that is also my own personal opinion and weighted decision. If you have a different opinion or are unable to figure out a solution for yourself, please be my guest and take them back.
Again, if I have offended you, I am sorry, it was not my intent. I was merely stating that technology changes and some devices eventually and simply cease to be compatible.
