Try This: Do not click the iphone to close, let it time out (user setting). When you re-open the iphone it will go directly to app and it will be open and running!

Sometimes it opens straightaway into the Bose app in the last screen I viewed. However, more often, it opens the app as if it is opening from a fresh start. I'm still checking to see what is different when it does one vs the other.
So far the only thing I can tell is that if it has been more than about 30 minutes, the app starts fresh. I'll keep testing.

I experience this delay every time I click away from the app (leave it running) and click back on it. "Getting things ready" every time -- this is a delay that impacts the ability to change modes quickly and missed life events.
I can not answer nor can Bose. I brought up the issue 14 months ago. If you are using a iPhone you can add it to widgets, it seems to be faster.

I too am experiencing a delay. If I’m at a restaurant and need to adjust any of the settings the wait can mean the difference between understanding dialogue or missing out. This isn’t a deal breaker, but it would be great to avoid delays at critical moments. (iPhone 6).
Hi brandnewjames, Joss.
Please try adding Bose Hearphones to your widgets.
Here's a link that should help.
