The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Plans to include previous track on Quietcomfort Earbuds



I wanted to get the Quitecomfort Earbuds, but some limitations are stopping me from getting one and wondering if anyone here has some idea about whether these limitations will be fixed in the near future. Or have an understanding of why these features are not available in the rather premium earbuds.


1. Inability to do Previous Track: This is probably the most basic feature when it comes to headphone control. I had 2 previous headphones from Bose and they both featured control for previous-track and it seems like a huge limitation for a premium product.


2. Limited function on the left earbud: Compared to the right bud, the left one seems to lack many features, such as volume control and mic during voice calls. This would mean that if I ever wanted to utilise one bud instead of two, it would mean that there will be a big difference in the experience between the two halves. Unless there are big hardware differences between the two halves, I would think that there should be options to assign identical controls between the two halves to use either interchangeably.
