Hey bhattomatic,

 

Thank you for confirming that. Have you tried using a different cable for charging the headphones, or a different power socket/outlet?

 

Also, if you haven't already, I'd recommend updating the product firmware HERE. Afterward, charge the headphones fully and let us know how many hours of battery life you receive.

I have changed the charging cable and updated the firmware, now the battery lasts for 3 hours instead of 1. I don't think it is still acceptable as a proper solution. 3 hours is just not sufficient. Sometimes during a meeting the battery goes off.

I just posted the same exact issue after a stupid firmware update. Now battery lasts about 50 minutes. Bose is doing a great job at screwing their customers and expect them to purchase a new one at a discounted price.
