Bose Hear App is not compatible w/ my 5-year-old Samsung Note 4?

I received the phones 3 days ago.

  • There was no "Bose Hear" app in the Google Play Store, but there is "Bose Connect" app, so I did that.
  • I turned on HearPhones, and saw a picture. "Hey, we have a better app for that" so I click install. 
  • "Your device isn't compatible with this version"
  • Note: My phone was arguably the #1 flagship Android phone 5 years ago. 

So maybe I will load the app on my wife's 2-year-old Samsung and see if the Hearphones help. 


If they do, I will probably wait to see if Bose actually starts to support Hearphone. They seem to be pretty much discontinued - search Bose.com does not find them. 


I am REALLY disappointed. The audiologist identified them as the best solution for me. 


I have had a lot of Bose audio equipment, I've respected their reputation, but "the APP doesn't work" and "discontinued" really nails your coffin.

Hi Hobkirk,

Thank you for joining the Bose Hear Community.


I'm sorry you are disappointed. If you look at Google Play Store - Bose Hearphones page

you will see that it requires Android 7.0 released August 2016.  Can you upgrade your phone to a later version of Android? If not, if your wife's 2-year-old Samsung is running Android 7.0 or later, Bose Hear should run.
