QC35 connecting to multiple devices - PC and iphone

I didn't realize when I purchased these recently that it would be a hassle to switch devices between the iphone and the pc. From what I can tell, I have to completely remove the bluetooth connection to the headphones from one device before I can connect it with the other device.

 

Is there any easy workaround this? It's a real nuisance, as my need for the headphones goes between these two frequently.

 

I know already that there's no Bose Connect on Windows.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: QC35 connecting to multiple devices - PC and iphone

You shouldn't have that hassel, but I've sometimes seen issues depending on the PC settings.

 

The headphones remember the last 8 devices it's connected to and should automatically connect to the last 2 devices that are in range.  Best thing is to wear them when you turn them on and you should find out what two devices it's connected to.  To switch between the 8 stored devices you flick the on/off switch into the third position (move it up and it will rebound into the on position) and you'll hear it try to connect to a previous device.

 

The idea is you can be watching a video on your ipad, and if your phone rings, you can just answer without switching.  It will pause the video while you're on the call and resume when you hang up.

 

A couple of tips:

to switch between the two connected devices you just pause and sound on the phone, and play sound on the pc or vice-versa.  If it's already playing I don't think it switches to teh second source.

If you have multiple devices in range it may be best to use the app to select which two are connected.
