Bose headphones are junk
Ok, time to vent. I bought two pairs of Bose headphones last year, one QuietComfort 35, one pair of SoundSport wireless. The wireless headset lasted about 4 months of not terribly heavy use before something broke in the volume control that connects the two earpieces. I lost the left channel, but I could make it come back if I pushed the cable ends into the volume controller. I replaced them with a set of Jaybird X3's, and so far, so good.
The QuietComforts lasted from October 2017 until last week, when they started turning themselves on. Now they won't turn off unless they're plugged into a MicroUSB cable. As soon as I unplug them, they turn on. When I switch them off, they play the power off sound and then turn right back on.
I love the noise reduction and fit of the QC35's, but they are overpriced crap at this point.
Oh, Bose's support site is down, so firmware updates (if any for my phones) are unavailable.
