The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

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?


Thank you,

Hello RLT4, 


Welcome to the Bose Community. Sorry to hear that you are having some connection issues with your headset. 


Let's try to perform a reset on the headset to resolve this connection you are experiencing. To do this please follow these steps below: 

  • Disconnect all cables from your headphones
  • Connect the larger end of the USB charging cable to a wall charger or a computer that is powered on
  • On the headphones, press and hold the Power/Bluetooth button while connecting the smaller end of the USB cable to the right earcup. The Power LED should quickly blink twice
  • Once connected, release the Power/Bluetooth button after two seconds.

I would also like for you to connect to a few different devices to see if the same connection issue persists.


We look forward to hearing back from you with the result of these steps. 

Feel more. Do more. Be more.
