Calls dropping regardless if incoming or outgoing

When I am on a call, I begin to hear the other person sounding like they are talking underwater, then a cracking feedback sound, and then the call completely goes blank. I switch to speaker phone and then back, and the call does the same thing, only quicker. Music and audio books function flawlessly.

Re: Calls dropping regardless if incoming or outgoing

Hello 1775R,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community! 

 

I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your Soundwear Companion Wearable speaker, I would be more than happy to help you with this today. Firstly, I would recommend trying a product reset, you can find steps to do this below:
 

(Note: A factory reset clears connected devices and language settings from your speaker and returns it to the original factory settings.)

  1. Turn the speaker on
  2. Press and hold the Multi-function button and Volume - buttons for 10 seconds
  3. Once complete, the Bluetooth® indicator flashes blue and a voice prompt prompts to select a language

Secondly, I would also recommend clearing the pairing list of the speaker and reboot the Bluetooth device you are using, please see the steps below to reset the speaker:

  1. Power on your product
  2. Press and hold the Bluetooth button for about 10 seconds until you hear a tone

Could you tell me if this happens on all calls or just on particular calls? I would also suggest trying another device with the speaker if you have one available?

 

I hope this helps, let me know how you get on!

 

Kindest regards,

Re: Calls dropping regardless if incoming or outgoing

Zoe, First off, thank you for the detailed response. I accomplished each thing you sent and the issue continues to exist. Even when I lose the call, I switch to speaker phone, then back to the Bose Soundware, and I lose the call quicker on the second time, as was the case before... What is next? I would like to exchange this for another Bose Soundware. How can we accomplish this? Thank you....
