Has anyone else noticed the point when this problem started with their sleep buds? I suspect I'm not alone.. the issue happened with my sleep buds AFTER I updated them. I got the replacements, and as expected, the app says to update. I am hesitant to update them because that's when this all started in the first place. And without updating the new ones yet, they are working perfectly. Has this been the case for anyone else?
Is there any possibility to a resolution for this problem? Resetting the case with a paper clip does no good, updating the case through the computer app does no good. I got replacements but am terrified of when this will probably start happening again (I have read where people have gotten replacements more than once). This seems unreasonable..

New phenomenon today, both buds won’t charge beyond 58% !! App says 9 hours but it is no more than max 5 hours. Come on Bose sort this out quickly.

I posted a few weeks ago, now on my 3rd set. Sent the others back to bose (still awaiting a refund) bought most recent ones from Currys. Within a week the 58% bug has struck that's 3 times in less than 2 months and I'm £460 down with a poor quality product. I'm using an older phone with version 2.2.2 of the app but from what I read issues with the app have not been mentioned. Bose just keep referring people back to customer services for returns. Why don't they actually comment on the issue and propose a fix, have no faith in this now, especially hearing some people are on set number 5. Will have to mess about again getting another pair sorted out. Poor show from Bose!

I have also been experiencing the 58% bug for the past two weeks or so. My app build is version 2.2.1, build 1877 on an iPhone X running iOS 12.4. I believe my earbud firmware is up to date. I am unable to update my case firmware, though. Whenever I plug it into my computer with the updated running and go to the website, nothing happens.
I've found a very annoying workaround that I have to do every day. When I take my earbuds out of the case and connect them to my phone, I have the left one at 100% and the right one at 58%. I put them back in the case and reset the case. Then, BOTH bud's charging lights begin blinking. This has gotten my battery up to about 70%. Again, this is annoying because I have to do this every day, and I shouldn't have to do this at all. I will be requesting an exchange of my earbuds. Unfortunately this is the second time I've had to do this.
I was trying that for a while, but resetting the case wasn't helping at all. This shouldn't involve endless troubleshooting that doesn't work. I would love to hear if there is a possible solution to this.

So after 2 days of messing around with my phone and buds and not being able to connect to perform an update, I tried another make of phone and it instantly connected and updated.
so both buds working and charging to 100% so far so good.

Thanks to the Bose Customer Service!
I called in with the issue of my Sleepbuds charging to 58%.
The customer service representative went through the trouble shooting with me (which I had already done thanks to this forum!) and
still the Sleepbuds were not charging to 100%.
I found the CS agent to be helpful, courteous and expediant with my calll and concerns.
I am awaiting a replacement by mail.
This product has changed my ability to get a full night of rest. I am extremely happy to know a replacement is on the way and my sleep will once again go on for 8 hours uninterrupted!

My left bud has started doing the same thing. Won't charge beyond 58%. I get around it by charging the left bud by itself. Very annoying, but at least it will last the whole night. I think there is something fundamentally flawed with the product, which hopefully can be resolved in the next Gen of the product.

Seeing how Bose seems to fail miserably when it comes to solving this issue, I’d like to share a procedure that worked for me yesterday.
This solution comes from a member called Sleepman, I have no credit when it comes to solving this issue.
The solution is to “jumpstart” the malfuctioning bud. To do this plug in the charging case to AC power. Place the offending bud on the terminals for about 15 seconds. Then remove the bud and immediately place it back again. Do this for about 3 minutes. Alternatively instead of removing the bud you can reset the case every 15 seconds for about 3 minutes. This will “fix” the issue and sleep-buds should charge back to 100 percent on next charging cycle and keep their charge. As time goes by and buds go thru charging cycles they can go into lazy mode again. Repeat “jumpstart” procedure as needed.
I suggest y’all to try this and share your experiences with the group.
Bose, you owe this guy BIG TIME.
