I just bought 2 pair of Bose QC35. I have my Problems with both of them. I started to test them out with standard Firmware coming with the headphones. 1.0.6 i think.
For your Information: My SmartPhone (Elephone P8000) and even my ASUS-Taichi31-Laptop works very nice and perfect soundquality with my 1 year-old Bose Soundlink Mini II and other Players via Bluetooth.
My Laptop ASUS Taichi31 connects with them without problems, but the Soundquality is very poor. Sounds like FM-Radio with bad Antennasignal. With all other bluetoothplayers and devices there is no problem at all. i dont think my Asus-Taichi31 is the problem.
But when i connect one of my QC35 to my Smartphone, i have alot of stopping for a short time and the speed of the music is accelerating and slowing some times.
Then i updated firmware to newest version, and im not getting any word out of music anymore now. its just doing some sounds and peaks, without any music. Now i cannot use my QC35 on my Smartphone anymore because there is no more music to hear since the firmware update 1.2.1 (?).
on the other side I got a Samsung S3 and some HTC M7 here working without any problems.
So in fact i have the same problem with 2 brandnew QC35.
I even bought a bluetooth-usb-stick for my computer to test them on the computer. they both work fine on my computer.
im not a technican or computer-expert but i think there is a problem with some of the bluetooth-versions or protocol?!
please help me out bose.
im owning the headphones almost 2 days and im very mad that they dont work correctly on my devices.
i dont wanna buy another smartphone to let my headphones work! even though my BOSE Soundlink works perfect with it.
