I have been using the Bose Speaker 500 since last 7 months. But last few day it is being observed that some crackling noise is comming from the speaker. This speaker is running with latest version of firmware. Currently I do not have solution how to resolve this. Please help me to provide the solution.
Sorry you're getting some crackling audio from your speaker. I'd love to help.
So I can provide you with the most accurate information, is this in reference to the Home Speaker 500 or the Soundbar 500?
Do let us know so we can issue the most effective troubleshooting 😊
@bubai1985 Thanks for confirming this.
Does this crackling occur across all sources that are playing? For example, Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, AUX, Bose Music, etc.
Please perform a reset by removing the power for 30 seconds and then reconnecting.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
It is happening with all - AUX, Bluetooth, Alexa, etc.
I have already done all like - perform a reset by removing the power for 30 seconds and then reconnecting. But issue is not resolved.
@bubai1985 Thanks for letting us know! Could you confirm if your speaker is running the latest firmware? (v9.0.14)
If not, could you please make the update, either via the Bose Music app, or by visiting HERE.
Let us know if this changes the audio quality.
Thank you for trying that @bubai1985, sorry to hear things did not improve.
If you're still continuing to hear crackling audio, I think it's best if you reach out to local support to look into the service options available. The team will be more than happy to walk you through the process so your issue can be resolved. Let me know how you get on with that!
