Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - Reduced Battery Life Announcement

Just got my NC 700 on Friday. Download the Music App (3.3.4). when I first connected the NC700 had 5 hr of battery life. Charge over night went up to 16hr. Did the reset process and now I can get it to 17hr after charging over night again. on Saturday I check for software on my NC700, they are up to date. Friday night they charged in the case and on Saturday straight to the wall. Sunday i did the double reset and still just got 17 hr.

 

Will I ever get my 20 hrs?

Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - Reduced Battery Life Announcement

hi,

to all that are thinking to switch to Sony over the Bose.

 

I am with Bose because of the way better sound quality the others hear when I use it for voice calls (on phone), meetings (phone or laptop), especially in noisy environments.

just because the 8 mic system that copes with surrounding noise.

now with the minimal Equalizer included, I'm good as well on audition.

 

Bose NC700 is one of the few that had dual simultaneous BT connection to devices (phone and laptop for me) and automatically switch the audio source based on utilization.  I own a Plantronics that make the same but uses a docking for BT to the laptop. Sony cannot manage dual simultaneous BT connection.

 

as per software issues.

Garmin Fenix, GoPro all have at one point some not too happy releases. in time will be solved.

 

and for all.... yes we "see" this 14-18 h battery report...is this only a false report or indeed the battery last only 14-18h? did somebody test it?

 

just me,

robert

Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - Reduced Battery Life Announcement

Hi Guys

 

Recently my headphones charge up to 16 hours only. I'm starting to get worried that the battery lifespan is not going to last for long, and because it doesnt work while charging its going to be a dud after a few months more. Can anyone provide some assistance or guidelines? is there possibility for repair or replacement of the battery?

@lindsaysaintsur 

The Sony WH-1000XM3 is even worse. Good choice. I’ve returned 6 pairs within 2 months.  Good luck with them, you’ll need it!

Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - Reduced Battery Life Announcement

Yet another problem with Bose headphones. this company used to be the best in the business and now its becoming a laughing matter. you guys really to sort stuff out and get new quality control people in as this proves they aren't doing there jobs to the best of their ability. Apple are going to get a lot of customers when they release their new over ear headphones and I can't see Bose recovering which is really sad. I love you guys but his is getting too much from the old QC35II, to the sleep buds and now your new headphones. I hope you guys can sort our problems out otherwise its going to a hard road onwards.

When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?

Any troubleshooting steps you took and effets, if any.

1. Disconnect all cables from the headphones.

2. Connect one end of the USB cable to a USB-A wall charger or computer that is powered on.

3. Press and hold the Power/Bluetooth button while connecting the small end of the USB cable into the USB-C port on the right earcup.

4, Release the Power/Bluetooth button when the Bluetooth light blinks blue.

Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - Reduced Battery Life Announcement

I also have the same issue which my Bose nch700 battery life wont exceed 16 hours and 42 minutes no matter how long I charged.The Bose product firmware update is version 1.4.12 and the Bose music app is up to date too.i tried to reboot it several times but it does not seem to work.Both my iPhone 7 and iPad mini 4 shows that the battery life won’t be fully charged.I am also sure that the following problem occurred after updating to this version.I am very pleased by the sound and eq Bose brought to us but the battery life needs to be fixed ASAP. I wish u guys can take this problem seriously.

The issue began a few days ago after an update, as the battery status never went past 20+ hours, only now it has gotten 2 hours lower to 16, sometimes 17, sometime 15+.
• Any troubleshooting steps you took and effects, if any.

Restarted headphones and wiping the device list, deleting bose music app and reinstalling, etc, basically all of the ones that I've seen so far

Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - Reduced Battery Life Announcement

While i appreciate the fact your your engineers are looking into the issue caused by the update that they approved in the first place it would be a good idea to offer a path back.  Like create an update that beings us back to a pre-updated firmware version.  it would be real easy, just take the previous firmware version and renumber it to be the next interim release so that we don't have to pay the price for the inadvertent reduction in battery life.  please let your engineers slog through their process on their own time and not ours.

NOT A GOOD WAY TO RUN A BUSINESS!
