Hello jzhaony, 

 

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the forums. 

 

I am sorry to hear that you are facing this issue, it is strange. The steps you have tried so far to fix it though are great! Let's try thoroughly refreshing the headphones and connections and see if this helps:  

 

1. Perform a product reset, to do this:

       - Disconnect all cables from the headphones.

       - Connect one end of the USB cable to a USB-A wall charger or computer that is powered on.

       - Press and hold the Power/Bluetooth button while connecting the small end of the USB cable into the USB-C port on           the right earcup.

       - Release the Power/Bluetooth button after 2 seconds.

2. Clear the Bluetooth device list on the headset by pressing and holding the Bluetooth button until you hear 'Device list cleared'.

3. Delete the headphones from the Bose Music app.

4. Uninstall and then reinstall the app.

5. Pair the headphones to your phone manually via Bluetooth.

6. Reconnect the headphones to the Bose Music app.

 

 

Let me know how you get on!

After I tried to reboot one more time as instructed above, the headphone appears to be dead, can't turn on, even charging light doesn't turn of any more!.  Need to have it repaired!

Hi jzhaony,

 

If the headphones are not responding after you have just completed a reset, it is worth doing the reset process one more time as this can happen occasionally and another reset will bring the headphones back for you. If they don't work after a reset, then you should reach out to your local support team to look into the service options for the headphones. You can find the contact information for them at this link, by selecting your country/region and then the 'Contact Us' option at the bottom of the page.

 

As you mentioned that the sound will be interrupted while watching a movie on your iPad or iPhone, does the sound only get interrupted while watching movies? What app have you been using to watch the movies? Does it happen with any app or only certain apps?

 

Also, as this appears to have started after the headphones disconnected from your devices, I'd recommend clearing the pairing on both the headphones, and your iPad and iPhone, then reconnecting them. To clear the pairing from the headphones follow the steps shown HERE. You'll also want to forget the headphones from your iPhone and iPad by going to Settings > Bluetooth and tap the (i) icon next to your headphones in the list. It will then give you the option to forget the headphones. Once you've done that reconnect the headphones to your devices and let me know if the dropouts continue!
