Bose 700 Remote - Sensitivity

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to know if anyone else is having issues with the sensitivity of the Bose 700 remote.
It seems like when i press a button on the remote it double cliscks it. I have also made sure a few time to only press it once, but it registers it twice. 
I am not sure if this is just my remote or a production line issue. 

Any feedback would be great. 
(I am start to feel like Bose pushed out a product without fully completing the QC process. To many little isuues with the remote with no fix in sight)

Thank you everyone.

Hi Mr. Islander


Thanks for posting in the Community!  Sorry to hear about the remote troubles, but would be happy to help!


Were you able to pair a cable box to the remote and does the issue happen when controlling a third party device?

Have you tried power cycling the soundbar and removing the batteries from the remote?


Let us know so we can further assist!


Warm Regards,

Unfortuntatly, I dont have an answer, but wanted to comment in case it helps resolve the issue. 


I have the same issue. For instance, when I am watching a show through DVR, and I fast forward, I normally press the fast forward button three times.  One of those times, it will double click, and it will fast forward as if I pressed it four times.  Another instance is when I press the play/pause button to stop the fast forward, there are times it will play and other times it will pause. I assume when it pauses, it is double clicking, or it could be visa versa, either way it is inconsistant.
