Re: QC35 on Windows 10 - Showed only as paired, not connected

Dear Jeff,


thanks again in your eagerness to solve my problem. I do not have any another Windows PC right now at hand, I will ask around. The Mac was not booting Windows 10.


However, I have connected successfully a pair of QC35 II to my PC. I could listen to music as well. What was special about it - the headphones were actually identified as Audio... my headphones are those not as previously already stated...



My headphones appear always as other device and not as an audio device...


PS: LE stands for low energy... and my headphones are only recognized via this bluetooth connection...

Hello joker313, 


Thanks for testing an alternative pair of QC35 II's. 


This does seem to be specific to your QC35's. It is strange that can connect to your phone but not to your Windows 10 PC or Laptop. With this in mind, I would have to recommend that you contact your local support center to explore service options.

Re: QC35 on Windows 10 - Showed only as paired, not connected

Hi guys,


I had the exact same problem and I solved it, so I thought you might be interested in the solution. The reason for this is that the QC35 is connected to too many devices. You have to clear the list of devices connected to your QC35:


Slide the power switch to the Bluetooth® symbol and hold for 10 seconds until you hear “Bluetooth device list cleared.” 2- Delete your qc35 headphones from the bluetooth list on your device. All bluetooth devices are cleared and the bose qc35 are ready to connect å new device


Hope this helps.


Kind rgds,
