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.

low volume in one ear bud



Bose product name

bose soundsport



Firmware Version


App Version


What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S21 Android 11

Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce

right ear volume is lower in all circumstances. even the built in voice commands


it seems like the speaker 'outlet' towards the back of the right ear bud is not producing any sound ( or very low volume). the main speaker outlet in the earbud centre is working. the overall effect is a reduced  tinny sound from the right ear bud


What environment do you experience the issue in? (e.g. noisy office, quiet kitchen, etc.)

all environments

When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?

about 1 week ago.  yes it has always worked prior to that

Any troubleshooting steps you took

* cleaned the ear buds

* updated Firmware

* connected to different devices

* listened to different types of Audio 

* tried other headphones to ensure the problem wasn't my ear!

* removed the rubber earbud fittings to see if they were blocking sound somehow

* fitted another unused set of rubber fittings
