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.
Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community.
I am sorry that you're experiencing a power issue with your QuietComfort 35 headphones. I would love to help.
When you say that they power on by themselves, is the Power switch in the off position? Or are the headphones on and are connecting to a Bluetooth source automatically?
If the switch is in the OFF position:
I would recommend resetting the headphones by following these steps:
1. Turn off the headphones and wait 30 seconds
2. Plug the headphones into a wall outlet using a USB charger, then wait 5 seconds
3. Unplug the USB cord from the headphones and wait 1 minute
4. Turn on the headphones
Additionally, please visit btu.bose.com on your computer and ensure that the latest firmware version is installed.
If the latter scenario, please let me know.

Thanks for your reply.
They come on when the power switch is off.
I have tried your fix to reset them, but still no luck.
These headphones are only 2 years old and I paid $350 to get Bose quality.
Thank you for trying that and letting us know, I'm sorry to hear it has not worked for you this time.
At this point, I would recommend getting in touch with your local support team, as they will be able to help you resolve this issue. You can find the contact information at this link, by selecting your country/region and then the 'Contact Us' option at the bottom of the page.
Let me know how you get on.
