Re: Sleep Timer and Alarm

Hi, 

 

I just wanted to reaffirm @Brandon_M and say that we have passed this suggestion along to our engineers for future development.

Re: Sleep Timer and Alarm

So Bose has consistently over the year replied with with the same non answer " will pass the suggestion on to engineers " when asked to supply a sleep timer on the Soundtouch app. Unfortunately that qualifies as a " non answer" to repeated requests on the same topic since it was first posted in 2016. Further Bose knows the value if a sleep timer as it was built into my first wave Bose product nearly a decade before. Why are we being put off for years (s) on this simple feature which Bose previously provided and Sonos now provides?

Re: Sleep Timer and Alarm

Exactly why I got rid of all my Soundtouch equipment and purchased multiple Sonos devices and subwoofers.    Clearly, Bose is dishonest and indifferent to the needs of their customers.  Accordingly, based on my Soundtouch experience coupled with their lack of honesty and/or concern, I will never purchase another Bose product in my lifetime.  BTW Bose, the sleep timer and bass and treble controls on my Sonos App work perfectly with my Sonos hardware!

Re: Sleep Timer and Alarm

No, the constant assurances that "it has been passed along to the engineers" are obviously hollow, and are quickly wearing thin. It seems a decision was made long ago that only SoundTouch Wave devices will ever have this feature. Apparently those of us who were too 'cheap' to have shelled out the extra $$ for a Wave device have been deliberately sidelined by Bose as some sort of cynical move to punish us.

Re: Sleep Timer and Alarm

Sometimes I'm wondering if Sonos and Bose aren't the same company, because a see so much people leaving bose for those little detail such as alarm clocks and sleep timer, and it doesn't seem they care about !
In fact, I'm hesitating a lot between the two brands at a point where details make the difference... And when I see that in two years of begging them, nothing happens... It's a pity...
Even though, I must admit that you guys have done a very big step ahead with the big update you did this year. Which is really good ! I would just suggest now to be more open to the critics of customers, because after all, that's how you make the difference ! 🙂

So let's us know if there is any news !
(actually within the two next days would be perfect so that I make my choice for Christmas) 😛

Best regards.

Dorian, "within the two next days would be perfect so that I make my choice for Christmas"
That brought a smile to my Bose-hardened lips - it would be a Christmas miracle!

Re: Sleep Timer and Alarm

I have one of the original version 1 ST systems. I have seen customers requesting this feature repeatedly and passionately on the Bose forums over the past 5 years. It's something I want too. Bose has made tons of improvements in the time I've owned it: more music services, skipping the step of plugging new systems into a pc to setup, a far better app, bluetooth, aux rebroadcast, Alexa. These are sweeping changes, and some took over a year to develop. Considering this history, I believe that this feature is never going to happen. Despite this recurring complaint, Bose has managed to sell plenty of systems without it . I guess it's not worth their development resources for this particular request.
