I recently bought the Bose 700 but I am having a lot of charging issues and other small bugs. I was hoping an update can help but if I go to the Bose Music App -> Settings -> Technical Info
It says "Your product is up to date; Firmware Version 184.108.40.206.9ca16c3"
I then tried going to https://btu.bose.com
And it does recognized the headphones when they are connected but it says
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
What can I do to update these??
According to this:
The latest software should be 1.2.11
I'm using windows and trying with chrome and edge. Any ideas?
Thanks for providing that additional information.

I have just got a set of Bose 700 headphones and they have an additional screw on the side which is not apparent on any other images. Anyone know what this is? Just above the USB-C charging port.

Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community. I am deeply sorry to hear that you are experiencing some strange issues with your headphones and would love to assist you further.
In regards to the new 1.2.11 update this is rolled out over 48 hours so no need to worry if you aren't immediately able to update your headphones. Please allow this amount of time and then attempt to update the headphones. For now, I would like to recommend that you perform a reset on the headphones by:
As well as charging the headphones via another outlet to ensure that this isn't the reason for your charging issues. If you are still experiencing these issues after the update and the reset then please do let us know via this thread.
If any other users are also having this update issue then please read the post above and allow 48 hours for this update to reach the headphones.

I tried that procedure since it is posted in a lot of other threads but it didn't help at all.
I also already tried 4 different cables and 4 different power sources and still have the same charging issues.
I don't think my version 90.0.9 is the one previous to 1.2.11, is it?
Thanks for posting and updating me on this. I am sorry to hear that your issue still persists.
Can you please attach an image of where you see 90.0? As this isn't a software version that I am aware of? The only software versions that are available for these headphones are 1.0.9, 1.1.4 and 1.2.11.
I look forward to hearing back from you in regards to this.
That's what I thought, it seems really weird that the updater gives me that message and the app shows the same.
I also tried to contact support and it told me my serial number shown in the Bose Music app was invalid, yet it shows the correct model name.
Please see the pictures showing the firmware version here:
Can I send you via private message with the pictures with the serial number uncensored?
EDIT: Here is what it shows at http://btu.bose.com/:
Thanks for this information, we would love to look into this a bit further with you via direct message. We shall reach out to you shortly.
We look forward to hearing from you.
