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

• Bose product model : Bose NC 700 headphones
• Bose product firmware version : 1.4.12.6283.9f658fd
• Bose app version : 3.3.4
• Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce: Headphones battery level is no longer going above 17Hr 30mins although the headphones were left to charge all night. The app shows as full charge. Realised that 17hr 30mins level lasted for 3 hours of usage (it didn't drop) and then suddenly my headphones shown 12hr of charge left. Last night, headphones displayed as having 45mins of charge left which ended up lasting for around 3 hours. After the first charge, my LED indicator no longer changes colour. It remains solid white from "full" charge to when apparently the headphones need charging although the bose manual shows that the LED should act differently depending on the amount of battery left. I have reset the headphones on multiple occasions following the instructions provided. Allowed the headphones to fully drain as I was hoping this would reset all the issues
• Where do you run into the issue? Where and when did it first occur? Received headphones 5 days ago, after first charge (3 days ago) I am having constant issues ever since. 
• What services are you using that were affected and what version are they on? (E.g. iPad Pro on iOS 12.9)  Huawei P20 Pro on Android version 9 (EMUI version 9.1.0)
• When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously? Issues started 3 days ago after the first complete charge. When the headphones arrived and I used them using the charge already in the headphones, no issues occurred.
• Any troubleshooting steps you took and effets, if any. Did reset of headphones following the instructions provided, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, checked for headphone updates on bose to ensure I had the latest version. Nothing has changed.

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

When I turn on the headphones I now get a single "boing" sound rather than the amount of battery left (max. 17 hours). This is since the last firmware update. Is anyone else getting this annoying sound or do you still get the initial battery level announcement? I can get the announcement via the touch pad in the usual way but not when they're turned on.

   - Experienced this after first full charge.  Previous version worked fine.

  - Tried resetting as instructed in thread? Description to connect USB-A while as pressing Bluetooth/Power button confusing? See step 3 below.

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: Bose 700 noise cancelling headphones charging issue

I have purchased this headphone weeks ago and charging it for the first time and it didn’t fully charged even after leaving it on Charing for nearly 8hours 

when I checked the headphone after eight hours it was charged only 18 hours and not 20 hours

Re: Bose 700 noise cancelling headphones charging issue

Does it means the specifications are wrongs stating 20 hours charge time 

when I charged my headset for nearly eight hours it shown 18 hours charges and when I started to use it I got voice message saying I have 17 hours battey remaining 

 

is it a fault if so can I exchange it now as I do have 7 days out of 14 days return policy 

 

thanks
