New NC 700: Bluetooth Disconnects More Than it Connects
New NC 700 headphones arrived yesterday. Setup seemed to work perfectly, and I was able to connect to two devices (iPhone and MacBook Pro). The app immediately began an update, and I plugged the 'phones in to charge overnight.
This morning the app said the 700 was not available, and it wouldn't connect to either device. I deleted it from both devices, cleared it using the button on the headphones, and set up both devices again. I figured the update had broken the connections. No big deal.
Then I went to lunch. When I came back, the 700 was just inert. No connections to either device, unavailable again in the app, and pressing the Bluetooth/Power button makes the blue light flash briefly but there are no voice prompts. Neither device can connect to the headphones.
It works well when it works, but I bought it to use in my home office, and when someone calls me I don't have the luxury of saying "Hang on, give me ten minutes to get this thing reconnected." If this keeps up, I'm sending these back as duds.
Also: when I first powered these up after overnight charging, the voice prompt told me that the charge was low. I am not impressed.
Anyone have any thoughts before I box this thing up?
