Yeah, that is what I'm doing, but I connect to 4-5 devices, the app lets you choose which one to connect to.
But yeah, I'll live without the app then.
I have not used my QC 35 for a long time and updated from firmware 1.9.x (from memory, might not be exactly accurate but definitely version 1.x) straight to 3.0.3 and have now reverted to 2.5.5
All seems good again, I say seems good because like I said I haven't used them in a while.
I just wanted to add that you can of course keep using the app by either ignoring the update notification or by disabling it.

theres nothing to it.
download the bose updater if you havent already and run it.
on your taskbar therell be a bose icon, right click on it -> launch bose updater webpage.
if your fw version is below 3.03 you can only upgrade to 3.03.
if your fw is 3.03 youll have the option to downgrade to 2.55 (but nothing else - no earlier versions are available anymore).

I did not wait for that. I googled until I found a hacky way to do it and rolled waaaaay back to the start so I wasn't left with an expensive useless brick. Deleted the Bose connect app and will never hook it up ever again.

Never use my QC35 anymore, decided to update to 3.0.3. Maybe I'm lucky but I have no ANC issues at all, have it on High and couldn't even hear the water when washing my hands.

I have had firmware 3.0.3 for months and now my QC35 does not switch OFF.
Any idea how to fix this?
I thought the hardware switch should overwrite anything but it isn't.
Hi artyyeo - sorry to hear you're having difficulty switching your headphones off. Are you still setting the power LED when the switch is set to 'off'? If so, there could be an underlying issue. If the latest update didn't resolve this, I'd strongly recommend reaching out to local support to look into the service options available to get things working again!
