QC35 Series 1 Battery and Update Issues
I recently purchases the QC35 Series 1 headphones and have run into a couple of issues already. The sound and noise cancelling is great, but there are a few issues I'm surprised to find in such expensive headsphones. I really want to like these headphones but the issues are making me think I should return them.
The first problem is the battery drains even when the power is off. For example, I charged them to 100% last night, turned them off, and when I checked this morning the battery was already down to 80%. This happens every time. The previous charge drained to 50% after 3 days of sitting idle with the power off. Is this normal? Is there something I can do to fix this? Calibrating the power meter didn't help.
And speaking of fixes, I tried to update to the latest firmware using the Bose connect app, and even though it says it updated the headphones to the latest version, the Bose Update site says different. I plugged them in with a usb cable, ran the Bose software updater, and it showed they were downlevel and installed the same update (1.3.4) I thought the app had installed. Maybe I missed something, but I don't think so.
Last but not least, the power switch seems to be very poor quality. It takes a lot of effort to move the switch and I'm afraid to push too hard as I've read many posts from others about the switch easily breaking.
Are these common issues or did I just get stuck with headphones that need exchanged?
