1. There is cracking sound while I connected the headphone to both iPhone and my windows 10 PC. It happens pretty often, which annoys me. There is no cracking sound when I only connect to the phone.
2. The voice assistant for Google and Alexa doesn't work when my phone lanaguage is Chinese even I live in US and my account location also sets to US. (it says these two are not available according to my location. I mean WHAT?)
3. I am unable to connect to the voice assistant even Google assistant detected my headphone. It says "Can't connect".
4. The bootup and shut down sound are pretty loud. Please provide a setting to disable them.
Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community.
I'm sorry to hear that you are having these problems with your Noise Cancelling Headphones 700's. I will do my best to support you with this matter.
Does the crackling happen when you are only connected to your Windows 10 PC? Also, does this occur when connected via the audio cable?
Although you may be in the US, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are not available in Chinese. As your phone language is set to Chinese, this is most likely the reason the assistant is stating it is not available.
I'll also be happy to send a feature request to have these tones disabled to our development team.
@huck5 Thank you for your input.
Are you just connected to your Windows 10 PC? Or plus another device?

Thanks for getting back to us.
I'm sorry to hear of the continued issues that you've had here. This sounds like there are either intermittent connection issues, or issues with interference.
As this is only happening when connected to the two devices through Bluetooth, what audio is being played when you hear this crackling? Is this crackling heard intermittently, or in specific circumstances? Do you hear this crackling audio when you are listening to the audio from the PC, audio from the mobile device, or when changing between these?
With regards to interference, can I ask if there is another Bluetooth device in this setup that may be transmitting a wireless interference, such as a Bluetooth Mouse/Keyboard, a nearby Wireless Router/Access point, or a Radio?
Please return to me when you can so I can follow up and ensure that this is resolved!

The cracking sound happened even there is nothing playing. If the music is playing, the cracking sound will out-play the music, which is more annoying. The cracking happened whenever both devices have application having sound or something. Some applications start on my pc also cause the cracking. And I don't think other device beside those 2 devices will affect this issue. It might be just a software issue.
