Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

"In Call" Glitch for Desktop Games with Voice Chat - Bose 700

I've been using the Bose 700 wireless headphones with my PC, which has been really nice for the most part, but I keep running into this issue, which has been REALLY bugging me. Whenever I launch games that have built in team communication, such as Destiny 2 or Starcraft 2, the headphones will instantly swap to the "in call" feature, similar to how it does when you answer your phone.

 

First the noise will swap from the "Headphones" Channel into a "Headset Channel," so you have to swap over to that to even hear anything (and I mean anything from any app, because it blocks out ALL other sounds) and it lets some of the sound bleed through the noise canceling. The audio quality drops to what you would expect out of some of the first TV systems, kind of static-ey and muffled, with a really low htz range.

 

I've attempted to force the apps to use the main channel, but still no sound comes through. The only work around I've found so far is to use the audio jack, but the thing is like 3-4 ft. long, so just long enough to reach the audio connector on the front of my computer, then I'm left with the problem of not being able to move without damaging the port or yanking the cord out. (Plus cords are really obnoxious)

 

Does anyone else know of a way around this? I really want to keep using my headphones on my desktop because the sound is great and I don't want to drop another $400 on a good headset if I can avoid it.
