Issues with the NC700 (drop outs, music app bugs)
A note to Bose engineers & software developers -
As leading edge as the features of this model are, there are some problems. Most of these issues occur when the headphones are connected to more than 1 device. Since this model employs bluetooth v5, it should be able to handle the multiple device connections pretty seemlessly.
Issues with the NC700:
- Frequently cuts out during music playback when connected to more than 1 device (Macbook Pro 2019 + iPhone 11 pro max with music playing from the iphone). Very annoying.
- Bose music app doesn't always connect despite headphones clearly connected to the phone via bluetooth (iPhone 11 Pro Max). This happens especially when more than 1 device is connected (iPhone + MacBook Pro 2019).
- On a windows PC, if the headphones were previously paired, they don't always automatically connect when powered on. I have had to repeatedly enter pairing mode to reconnect them. The PC was built less than a year ago and is equipped with bluetooth v5.
It seems as though a firmware update could solve at least 2 of the 3 issues.
