I really like my new Sound Sport Free headphones.
As far as I can tell the only possibility to turn off the headphones is to place them in the case.
I have already set the standby timer to 5 mins. As suggested in this archived thread:
For me it is really important to have a way to turn them off manually. Bose can't expect users to always have the very bulky charging case at hand. At least for me that is not the case.
@boseare there any plans to provide such functionallity in the near future?
I guess it should not be that hard to implement via a firmware update. Or if that should not be possible then at least give us an option to turn them off via the app.
