I just returned my Bose NC 700 headphones last week because my Bose Music app was not discovering my headphones. The problem was they were replacement headphones that I wanted over a week for because my originals had power problems. 


I'm now 2 weeks of trying to work from home with no headphones. It's so hard to get a hold of anyone that can support me. I used to brag about Bose support, but having to return the headphones and wait so long for replacement has made it really hard.


I've tried contacting support but they only provide canned responses and I have trouble hearing / understanding. 


Wane, can you help? Thank you. 


I had the app previously but just bought the 700 headphones. I updated the app to the newest version but can not access the EQ settings. Is there a way to solve this or is there going to be a big fix update sent soon???




Welcome to the community, thanks for reaching out. 


Please update the firmware of your headphones to update to 1.7.1 this should resolve your problem and you will be able to access the EQ. 


Any further questions, do let us know.
