Since we're now a year later and this option is still not available. Maybe a default thing would be remember the last setting it was on before turning it off?

I totally agree. I use it mostly without noise canceling or on low settings. This default behavior doesn't make sense at all, I can't imagine any use case when this is better than having the last used settings or noise canceling off when you turn it on.

Is this feature in development? I just got a pair of QC headphones and need to change the setting nearly every time I turn them on. I will return them if this is not something that Bose intends to fix.
I agree that simply allowing the last setting to be sticky would be sufficient.

Thanks for the post. We do appreciate the input and understand the frustration. I can confirm that our engineering dept is aware of users requests for persistent noise cancelation. If and when we have more news on this subject we will post it here in the community!

"Control Active Noise Cancellation from Your Headphones
When the QC35s first came out, there was no way to adjust the ANC options when you were in wireless mode. They eventually came out with a firmware update so you could turn ANC off but you had to manually do it through the Bose Connect app. Now with the QC35 IIs, you can control the ANC levels with a press of the Action Button and cycle between high, low and off."
