Bose soundsport showing orange indicator then flashing green instantly with no charge

Hello. Whenever i plug

my headset into the charger it will flash orange a few times and automatically go to green. I know they aren’t fully charged but the app and iPhone shows it at 80-90 percent but instantly shoots down to 20 percent then eventually off. I have looked and tried all the steps in resetting my Bose soundsport headphones and I would like to know what is the fix if a reset doesn’t fix it. Thank you

Hi Tj_918, 

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community. I am deeply sorry to hear that you are having issues with your SoundSport Headphones and would love to assist you further. 

 

Firstly, can you please confirm if you have the SoundSport Wireless or the SoundSport Free Wireless so that I can provide you with the correct troubleshooting steps. I would highly recommend that you attempt to charge the headphones via a wall outlet or a different charging port to ensure that this is not the issue. 

 

If you are unsure of which product you have you can easily use our identifier here https://bose.life/2JOc45e. 

 

I look forward to hearing back from you regarding this. 

 

Kind Regards,

Hector B - Community Support

Hello Tj_918,

 

This is certainly unusual. Thank you for confirming the model of your headphones.

 

I would first like to suggest that you ensure your headphones are running the latest available firmware version. You can do this by visiting btu.bose.com on your computer and following the instructions.

 

Another recommendation is to reset your headphones. To do this, please follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the headset and wait 30 seconds
  2. Plug the headset into a wall outlet using a USB charger, then wait 5 seconds
  3. Unplug the USB cord from the headset and wait 1 minute
  4. Turn on the headset

 

Once you have completed these steps, please monitor the charging behavior and report back to us.

 

Warm regards,

Charlotte G

thank you for the tips, however it did not work. showing the same symptoms. Still automatically goes directly to green after going dead in my ears. I have also ensured that the firmware is updated to the latest through the bose connect app.

Would like to say this isn't that usual since this is the exact reason why I came to this forum.  Mine is doing the exact same thing.
