Re: Right ear stopped working soundsport

Hey Zamyds,


Thank you for taking the time to post and welcome to the Bose Community. I'm sorry to hear you're encountering some issues using your SoundSport headphones, but I'd be happy to advise.


I appreciate you trying a range of troubleshooting that I would've recommended, as it helps narrow down the source of the issue. A product reset is key, and also clearing the pairing history of the buds (holding the Bluetooth button for ten seconds) and your phone will help. In regards to updating the firmware, are you saying the BTU site made it to 100%, but never fully completed? Or, the update completed but the right bud is still not turning on?


If so, then it may be worth reaching out to local support, to look further into the available service options. The team will be happy to walk you through the process to have your product replaced and have you listening to your music again in no time! Let us know how you get on, or if you have any other queries.
