Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - 1.7.0 - September 14th 2020

Still the same stuttering issue on 1.7.0? I'm thinking about buying another pair of 700 because they are so much comfortable than the Sony wh-1000xm4 but I'd like to know what's the status of this issue.. thanks

@fodaveg,

I have no stuttering issue after update to 1.7, but some users still complain about it.

I guess those who updated from 1.3 to 1.7 still have stuttering problem, while for those who updated from 1.5.1 the stuttering gone in 99%.

Also I noticed that sound signature is a bit different than on 1.5.1, is more bass, similar to Sony xm series. The middle sound/vocal seem more distant now.

 

1.7.0 - Battery 18 hrs 23min - 'Battery Full' 

1.5.1 - 17hrs - 20min after full charge.

@madbooba Thank you. I'll give them a try again. I hope they come with the 1.5.1 firmware by default and make an update to 1.7 with no stuttering.

@fodaveg There's no unit that comes with 1.5 from factory. They come with 1.3 or earlier.

 

I have the latest model, triple midnight (blue), and it came with 1.3. And I left them like that, they work flawlessly. Don't update them to 1.7 and you'll be fine and happy with your NC 700.

 

Wait for a new and stable firmware.

@cgg074,

Flawlessly? So, you're saying there is no stuttering issue on 1.3.1, and you can connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously?
Moreover no EQ.
Only one thing was good on 1.3.1 - NC.

Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - 1.7.0 - September 14th 2020

Recently I contacted Bose regarding connection issues with NC700 headphones and Samsung S10 after their latest firmware update. This update was automatic and cannot be reversed by the customer. The Bose community is plagued with connection issues since this update 1.7.  for me it resulted in a boot loop of headphone disconnecting and reconnecting, turning on and off, and unable to use any functions ie music or phone.

I have carried out extensive testing to resolve issue and arrived at the final conclusion. I can connect QC35 to S10 Android 10 no problem, I can connect NC700 to a different Android device no problem. But I cannot connect NC700 to Android 10 Samsung S10.

Bose contacted and their response “you will have to wait until phone updates to Android 11”.

You have to be joking right, We have to wait several months until a new version of Android is available to our devices before we can use our expensive high end headphones because of a firmware update that was forced onto us, apparently without exhaustive testing by Bose.

Bose can you please address this issue now by either rolling back your firmware or fixing the issue.

I for one am not impressed by Bose and for what I thought was a great pair of headphones would not consider buying another Bose product, customer support is real poor.

@madbooba Yes they work flawlessly out of the box. At least my brand new blue NC 700 do.

 

I must admit I do miss the EQ, but as I said, I will wait for a stable and reliable firmware before updating my headphones. I prefer having no EQ than having an unusable headset

@cgg074,

Good for you, enjoy. I have also no stuttering issue after update to 1.7 from 1.5.1, EQ and improved sound signature, which is more bass now, deeper 😜

 

1.7 is not so bad, just would be nice if Bose engineers could fix NC, because is a bit worse than on 1.3

How much do we have to wait for a reliable firmware? 🤔
