Soundsport Free does not charge

I'm having a real problem with my Bose Sound free. the case does not charge them and even if I keep the headphones inside the case and charge the case they still won't charge.

I am grossly disappointed with this purchase. This problem began almost immediately after the purchase of the headphones.

I have updated the earbuds to the latest software but I'm thinking the problem is in the case.

please advise me what can I do. I'm really frustrated. 

 

Chen.

Re: Soundsport Free does not charge

Hey Chen D, 

 

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Bose Community Forums. 

 

I am sorry that you are having this issue and I would love to see if I can assist you. To start with we need to make sure that the metal pins on the headphones are aligned with those in the case to ensure charging. We also need to make sure that the case is getting the right power to it when charging. You will need to be using an input power os 5 VDC, 0.8 A.

 

I would also ensure that you are using the Bose charging cable provided. 

 

I look forward to hearing back from you. 

 

Kind Regards, 

Vicky W - Community Support

Hi, yes, I'm using the charging cable provided, I can't see any problems in the mental pins and the power is as described.

 

Thank u for your answer,

Chen.

Hi Chen D, 

 

Thanks for confirming this. I'm sorry to hear you are still having issues with the headphones. 

 

If the metal contacts are free of debris, and you are still unsuccessfully charging, then I would recommend reaching out to local support in your region to discuss your options for service. Details can be found here.

 

Kind regards, 

 

Jeff G

Charging issues with Soundsport free wireless

I’ve had mine for a few months and I haven’t dropped them or damaged them in any way, but about a month ago they stopped connecting to my phone but I got it fixed. Now they won’t charge in the case but they will if the case is plugged into a wall. I’m not sure why this is happening, I’ve tried looking up ways to fix them but nothing has worked and I’m not taking them apart to do anything.

Re: Charging issues with Soundsport free wireless

I am having the same problem!  For awhile, the issue was that they wouldn't charge more than 80% when in the case, even when the case was fully charged.  But now they're in the case and, even when the case is plugged in, they just won't take a charge.
