Has anybody had success in getting a replacement on /off switch for the QC35?
Getting through to customer support (in UK) in any way has proved impossible. Whatsapp is not responded to

That's a hardware issue.
Option #1... Return it to the retailer NOW. Get a cash refund and repurchase a new unit so that the retailer's return policy starts from scratch. If the new unit has the same problem, take it back again and purchase a different product.
Option #2... Follow the advice on this forum until the retailer will no longer accept a return. Then ship it to Bose for a repair. Wait six weeks (like I did for a Wave system) to get your QC35 back. Confirm that the problem is still present.
Thanks for the post. That does not sound great. Appears like it could be a loose power switch? Your best bet would be to get in touch with your local Bose Support for the best available options at this point.
Here is a link for contact info if you need it
Please update us on how everything goes?

I'm having the same exact problem on my QC35. Switching to the OFF position and waiting a few seconds will turn on and pair automatically. I cannot turn it off.
@esemthew sorry to hear you are having the same issue. We do recommend that you contact your local Bose Support by clicking here. We'd like to know how it goes so do update us when you can.

I've been using the QC35 for almost a year now, and for some reason as of lately whenever I turn them off (the power button to the off position), they power themselves back on, tried to update them to the latest version, did not seem to help.
Any advice before I turn to activate the warrenty?

Thanks for the message. Sorry to hear that. Could we ask does the switch seem loose at all? Its possible that the switch is defective. If you find that the switch doesn't engage properly, we would recommend contacting your local Bose support HERE. Click on your country, scroll down to "Contact Us"
Hope that helped

I have the very same problem on my QC35. They switch on even with the on/off button on the off position. The button seems to be Operating fine. The headphones they switch off but after 4-5 seconds they switch on again and the power light gets green.
i'm in Portugal and have no local Bose Service Center. How can I get by headphones serviced?
Thanks in advance for your support.
