QC35 really low volume on Bluetooth!
I have a problem with my Bose QC35 and very low volume when connected via Bluetooth!
It happens both on my iPhone and my Macbook, when using Spotify, iTunes, Youtube, anything really.
I end up having to set my Macbook and iPhone to around 90% volume to listen properly, and this is inside my office with no background noise. I have my QC35 set to max (till I hear the beep). I am by no means deaf, in my Sennheiser I use my Macbook/iPhone at 40% volume max for the same level of sound. The difference is ridiculous.
My devices are:
- iPhone X with updated 12.0.1 iOS
- Macbook Pro with updated Mojave masOS
- Bose QC35 with updated firmware 2.5.3
- Bose Connect App on iPhone updated 6.3.1
- Spotify and iTunes are both set for max volume
- Bose QC35 are set for max volume with the cup keys (till I ear the beep)
Furthermore, after I have Spotify/iTunes open, both the QC35 cup buttons and the Macbook/iPhone volume keys are controlling the same volume, meaning I stop being able to control the volume of the QC35 and my device separately for some reason?
This drives me insane, on my other headphones I’m able to just always have the volume of the headphones themselves always set at maximum and then control the volume I want in the Macbook/iPhone volume keys accordingly. Here after I’m connected the volume on the Bose App, on the QC35 keys and on the iPhone/Macbook themselves are all the same and can’t change them separately.
So basically I’d like to know if there’s a way to see the actual volume of the QC35 themselves when connected to my iPhone/Macbook?
TL:DR - really low volume on QC35 with everything updated and at max volume!
