It could be a security setting on the computer, Cheryli. 

 

Try this please: 

 

- Click Start

- Open Settings

- Privacy 

- Microphone

 

From there, enable: "Allow apps to access your microphone" and enable the apps that are not working if they are disabled. 

 

I hope this helps!

Re: Bose Soundsport only working on some apps

Hi cheryli,

 

So I can provide the most accurate information on this, I do have a couple of questions to get a better idea of what exactly is happening with your headphones.

 

Which model of SoundSport headphones do you have? If you are unsure of the exact model, then you can double-check with the Find Your Product section on our support page HERE.

 

As you mentioned the headphones are working on some apps and not others, with calls, turbodial, and Spotify given as examples of apps that are not working, what are some apps are the headphones are working with correctly?

 

As the headphones stopped working with all apps yesterday, did you change anything in your setup when this started happening? Any updates to the iPhone, laptop, or headphones, or anything like this?

 

I look forward to hearing back from you!

Re: Bose Soundsport only working on some apps

Keith,

Thank you for your swift reply.

According to my receipt, I bought: Bose Soundsport Wireless Sports Earbuds

Model:761529-0010
SKU:5168600
BestBuy
 
It works on Zoom and I didn't try till now an iphone to iphone call and it works fine both inbound and outbound calls.
 
Yes, I ran a windows update yesterday. I don't know if my iphone ran an update overnight.
 
If I need to update the driver do you have a link with directions?
 
Thanks,
-C

Re: Bose Soundsport only working on some apps

Thanks, Cheryl. 

 

Have you tried unpairing the headphones from your devices, then established a new connection? To do this, press and hold the power button for around 10 seconds or until you hear the voice prompt confirming the device list has been cleared. On your smartphone and computer, go to settings > locate Bluetooth, then remove the headphones from the list. 

 

Please let me know if this helps. 

 

Thanks.

Re: Bose Soundsport only working on some apps

Brilliant! I'll tell my IT guy that I have now added to my IT list before I contact support: 1. Remove device and re-pair.

1. Is it plugged in?

2. Is the power turned on?

3. Did you reboot?

4. Remove device and re-pair

LOL

Thanks so much!

Re: Bose Soundsport only working on some apps

Drats. It's not working on Turbodial and it looks like the settings on the computer are right...and when I turn on the headset AFTER turbodial is turned on, it shows it is connected to the Bose but I can't hear anything. Ideas?
