Re: NC 700 Without Sound on iPhone Calls

I've unpaired and re-paired the headphones. I've reset the phone. I've set the call audio to be received by the Bluetooth headset (via Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Call Audio Recording > Bluetooth Headset).  I only take and receive calls via my iPhone SE and not my iPad, so I can't speak to whether the issue is present on that device. I do know that it appears that several other users are having issues with the iPhone as well, at least based on the community posts I'm now seeing.

Thanks for updating us on this mcdonart22! 

 

This is strange to hear that even after you set the correct routing method, you are still unable to hear the call. 

 

Can you please let us know if the audio seems to be pushed to the iPhone or just isn't appearing anywhere at all? It would be great if you were able to locate a second device to attempt to make a call from. 

 

You could also test a Wi-Fi call with the iPad via a few different platforms if possible! 

 

We look forward to hearing back from you with further information.

Re: NC 700 Without Sound on iPhone Calls

I'm having the exact same issue with my iPhone Xs.  I've gone through the entire troubleshooting options given in Bose support.  I don't drop calls at all from my computer, but when I'm on my iPhone - forget about it.  I drop every one within a minute or two (I timed them, and it's random timing).  Even more strange, when I'm playing music - the synchronization between the iPhone and Bose 700 is flawless.

Re: NC 700 Without Sound on iPhone Calls

Per your request, I tried with a different, non-iPhone device. No issue connecting to a call. Once again, based on the responses I've seen, this seems to be a fairly widespread issue. Are there any plans to fix the issue?

Re: NC 700 Without Sound on iPhone Calls

I should also note that there are no issues playing audio on the phone whatsoever. Spotify, PocketCasts, Netflix, YouTube and YouTubeTV all play audio flawlessly. The issue is strictly with phone calls.

Tick, tock, Bose.  Why are there so many issues with the iPhone connection with phone calls?

Re: NC 700 Without Sound on iPhone Calls

I’m having the excact sale issue on an iPhone 12 running iOS 14.3. No phone calls possible at all. Please see details here and let us know what to do, it’s infuriating (as is silence on that thread, with toast moderated post saying “I’ll let you know if developers come back to me” 🤬https://community.bose.com/t5/Around-On-Ear-Headphones/No-sound-calls-iphone-NC-700/m-p/586133#M7447...
