Updated to 3.1.8 from 2.5.1 yesterday, using the Bose Updater app on my Macbook. Noticed a few things afterwards:
- It lost connection with my iPhone. It looked connected, but music didn't play through to QC 35 II.
- When connected to my Macbook, QC 35 II is playing music in mono, not stereo. I compared it with my wired headphone connected to the same laptop. Listening to some music that shifts between the left and right channels (like "Grandmaster Jam Session" from Thor Ragnarok), that shifting effect is completely gone in QC 35 II, and the audio fidelity is lower too. Almost looks like my Mac is seeing QC 35 II as a hands-free device (like for phone conversation).
- The middle "action button" is not functional. I used to set it to change ANC level, but now it is not doing anything when I press it.
