Well, I went ahead and broke away from my Bose loyalty for the first time in about 6-7 years. I bought AirPods - they do exactly what I want them to when it comes to calls, meetings, etc... I guess my SoudSports will be strictly for working out now..

Has Bose responded to any of this? Are they planning on doing some kind of update to allow calls to come through both earbuds, or are they simply moving on and allowing us to "deal with it" after purchasing expensive earbuds? I am somewhat shocked at the moment to be honest.

SO the answer to the original question is NO we cant provide call audio in both ears?
Can you please advise if you ever will fix this or if i should return my Bose headphones and go with a different brand who can offer this (seemingly basic) ability? I am comfortable having minutely inferior sound quality to be able to hear calls from both ears.
Appreciate you will run with the whole better sound quality (agreed), comfort (irrelevant), fit (irrelevant), and convenience (irrelevant) but that does not provide any real validation as to why it was not included as a standard feature when other brands offer this and are still comfortable, fit fine and are equally as convenient.
I highly doubt they will be fixing or addressing this issue. I'm sure it's causing some backlash from loyal consumers. It's pretty sad to see a bose product have 3.5 stars on amazon and I'm confident that will continue to plummet. Really wish you guys would address this issue head on and fix this.

I was very excited to get them as soon as they were available. I never dreamed they would limit the call capability to the right ear. It didn't take me very long to return them. I will happily make a trip back to the Bose store if you correct this issue. Until then, it's a hard pass for me.
