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.

Bose Headphones QC 35II won't turn on Bluetooth when plug into computer

I am trying to get my headphones to sync to my computer, and have them attached via the cable, but when they are connected to the cable I can't get the Bluetooth discover-able light to turn on.  When I unplug the cable it works.  I need to get these synced to the computer.

Hey Famiv, 


Thank you for posting and welcome to the Bose Community. 


When connecting to the PC via the aux cable, you don't need to also pair it with Bluetooth for the connection to work.


Also when connecting an aux cable to the headset this will disable Bluetooth, meaning that you won't be able to perform the action you are trying too. 


If you have any further questions, please do let us know.
