Faulty 'Power/Wireless' switch
I'm interested in whether what I'm experiencing is more likely a faulty hardware issue or a software issue. In short, the headphones function normally for a few minutes, and then seek to pair to another device, and then wipe the bluetooth device list.
I initially suspected a hardware issue as it is as if the 'Power/Bluetooth' switch is being slid over to Bluetooth. In other words, for a few minutes the headphones work fine, then I hear voice prompts to the effect of "Pairing to another device" and then "Bluetooth Device List Cleared". (I have updated the firmware, and done a factory reset.). The real frustration is that once the bluetooth device list is cleared, I am disconnected from my device and then need to complete the arduous process of reconnecting. This involves forgetting the earlier connected device, etc.
It seems as if the headphones have become faulty whereby the 'Power/Bluetooth' switch is no longer able to remain in the neutral position? However, a similar issue has been described as a possible software issue (see the post: https://community.bose.com/t5/Around-On-Ear-Headphones/QC35-Keeps-Clearing-Bluetooth-List/td-p/20755...)?
Be grateful to hear if anyone else has had the same issue and, if so, how they were able to resolve it.
