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.

Any way to stop Bose Smart Speaker from disconnecting Bose Soundlink headphones

I will be listening to an iPhone XR on Bose Soundlink headphones upstairs. Someone will power on the Bose Smart Speaker downstairs. Headphones will automatically disconnect and audio will switch to speaker. This is incredibly annoying. Anyway to prevent?

Hello dtrenaman, 

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to our Community. Sorry to read that you are running into a disconnecting issue with your speaker. 

 

This isn't something that can be prevented as this is the speaker connecting to the previous device. With the iPhone, you aren't able to disable this feature other than forgetting the speaker and re-connecting every time you wish to use it. 

 

You could possibly forget your device from the speaker and then connect it again, then the speaker will connect to the more recently connected devices first before attempting to connect to your phone. 

Feel more. Do more. Be more.

Wow that is really poor design. To be clear the auto connect is not the issue, the auto disconnect is. I hope Bose reconsiders this. In the meantime I will forget the speaker. Thanks.
