Re: Soundsport Free left side issue during call
I just got my SSF from Canada, having paid CAD 250 for these premium buds, I was excited to start using them. But as many users have mentioned the left bud just refuses to connect, even though while connecting there are beeps in both but the moment music is played the left goes silent. Though I primarily bought these for fitness and for music, it really is dumb that calls are only routed to the right ear. I have cheap $30 Chinese TWS buds which route calls to both ears and neither bud drops connection while playing music.
After reading a ton of online reviews I decided to go for the SSF, but now regret the decision due to regular connection drop of the left bud. I use these paired to my Galaxy Watch during fitness while not carrying the phone on person. And its a hassle just getting both buds working together, the buds need to be first connected to the Bose Connect App on phone, with the music playing at first there's no audio in the left year, toggling between the Galaxy Watch and then back to my One Plus 3 does connect both buds and then finally the connection can be shifted to the Galaxy Watch successfully, most of the time.
But imagine, in this day and age going through this rigmarole to connect to bluetooth headphones!!! This is just not acceptable. I too have a few other Bose products but this has been a terrible disappointment. Living in India I am now unable to even think about returning these as and replacements from the Bose service centers would have similar results as mentioned by various users on this forum.
And before you put forth any suggestiogs/ procedures, let me tell you, I have tried everyting mentioned in this forum without success. These are premium range buds and rather than putting out the same suggestions to everyone, I strongly feel Bose should come out with a practical and acceptable solution else face the wrath of ardent yet dissapointed Bose fans.
