Re: NC 700 - No way to switch devices using the headphones
I've been a long term advocate of the Bose headphones. I adored my QC25s. My QC35s are the perfect device (still use them all the time). When the 700s came out, I immediately got them. I can't help but feel like Bose has dropped the ball at the software level.
Switching between audio devices on the qc35s is intuitive. Not so on the 700s. The pause/play method doesn't work for 700s most of the time. Often the 'active' device (i.e. computer) is not playing any sounds - confirmed from settings. Yet only through the app can I switch. Please look at the logic used within the QC35 and port it over. The different noise cancelling settings and ability to hear outside noise is nice, but the device just isn't as user friendly as the 35s. Removing hardware buttons is nice... but not at the expense of functionality. I feel like my 700s are a degraded product from the QC35.
Please improve them - I know a ton of R&D went into these new headphones. But you still have to nail the basics when it comes to bluetooth:
Intuitive device switching.
Easy Recognition of device on PCs.
These two flaws cause me to use my QC35 for work meetings, etc. I only pull my 700s when I need to hear outside surroundings, and don't mind fiddling with settings a bit.
