Re: Feature Requests

I look forward to truly wireless /Soundsport Free version of Hearphones, hopefully with mono mode, for my single sided deafness. Battery life could be compromised to some extent.

If the cables were a light gray they'd be MUCH less noticeable.

Noise Canceling Microphone

 

Bose has the best noise canceling technology in the world, bar none.

 

But, in all your consumer products, you don't have noise canceling built-in to the microphone! So, in a noisy environment, I can hear callers great, but they can't hear me.

 

Think convertible cars, other noisy cars, extremely loud crowds, concerts, auto races, standing on the side of the freeway when my car has broken down, emergencies where people are yelling...and many more.

 

Your mic works fine in quiet or moderately noisy environments, but that's it. You have the technology, your professional and military products have it. Many of your consumer competitors have it. Every cell phone on earth has it, why not you?

Re: Feature Requests

I hope something like this can be improved in a firmware update. It is extremely important. How can we have the best active noise canceling headphones in the world so we can everything, but somebody we call can't hear us in a noisy environment? It's in every cell phone in the world, and in most BT ANC earbuds.

 

Bose has consistently left this out of all your products that incorporate a mic...why?

Re: Feature Requests

Please! Why does Bose resist this in all their products?

Re: Function while charging (Feature Request)

I like the idea of being able to use while charging. Getting a longer cord is easy; go to any drugstore, office supply, electronics store, Amazon, whatever, and simply get a USB to micro USB charging cord. I've seen them in lengths up to ten feet.

Re: Feature Requests

I noticed, as have you and others, the high pitched squealing when removing the earbuds. I quickly realized it was feedback from the noise of my fingers rubbing the earbuds. The solution was to turn down the world volume boost before removing them. I would like to see an automatic feature that does that when the earbuds are removed, but that might kick in when they are simply being repositioned.
