BOSE NC 700 1.8.1 Crash, Crackle, Buzz, Restart. 1.3.1 is fine
Bose product name NC 700
Firmware Version 1.8.1
App Version ???
What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on
Everything that uses Bluetooth connections
Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce
Upgrade headphone firmware to 1.8.1, use any Bluetooth device
What environment do you experience the issue in?
When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?
Got worse ever since we departed from 1.3.1, errors and restarts more frequent. 1.8.1 unbearable, restart every time Bose Music android app tries to connect and every few minutes listening to music.
Any troubleshooting steps you took
Returned the old pair for repairs and got a new pair. Worked fine, then upgraded to latest 1.8.1 firmware and happens again. Downgraded to 1.3.1 and smooth as butter (Yes I know not supported and discouraged, but I want to be able to use my $400 investment)
Look, it's simple, firmware is a disaster. Been months now. Fix it. I didn't post any links or instructions to downgrade, so hope this post won't be deleted, otherwise I can only post my question on review sites.
Also, I know BOSE devs are thinking about taking away the ability to downgrade all together. If you do and force me to an unusable firmware, small claims court for sure. Don't do it unless you can produce a 'smooth as butter' firmware as it should be. Save the new features for NC 700 II or something if the current processor or ram can't handle it
