Re: NC 700 disable noise cancel using hardware button

Is it possible to set up a long press to turn all ANC off?

Re: NC 700 disable noise cancel using hardware button

Bumping this thread. Just bought these headphones. Would like to be able to turn off NC.

 

Used to have the PXC 550 and they had this feature. Think I may return these headphones with hopes they will add this feature in the future

I would love to see this feature in the app, for example as an option for the configurable button.

Re: NC 700 disable noise cancel using hardware button

Recently got the NC 700s, and I have one major feature request.

 

I am one of those that never use ANC when listening to music.

It's what I use whenever I listen to anything else, but with music I always turn it off.

And I do mean the actual "Noise Cancellation" feature in the Bose Music app, not setting ANC to 0.

 

The current way to do this is way more cumbersome than it needs to be.

When using bluetooth:

Going from off to on is fine enough, with a tap or two with the left button.

When I want to turn it off again, you have to dig into the Bose Music settings and kill it in there.

 

Wired mode is absolutely horrible:

When going from off to on, the procedure is the same as bluetooth.

When turning it off again, you need to disconnect it from the wired source, have it connect to your phone over bluetooth, and turn it off in the app.

 

This makes me almost never use ANC ever, since getting if off again is usually a nuance at best, and a hassle at worst. This is truly a shame, since that's a huge part of this product.

 

A way to physically turn off ANC is really wanted.

Either include it in the list of "favorites" in the ANC settings, or let us double/triple-click one of the physical buttons.

 

Besides this, the 700s is a great set of headphones that I love to use.

By the way, there is one more annoying thing: even if you disable the NC, it will be enabled back when you restart the headphones, despite “remember noise cancellation” being enabled.

I'm really counting on the implementation of this feature. It would make this headphones much more enjoyable.

Re: NC 700 disable noise cancel using hardware button

I agree.  This needs to be a feature that can be changed through physical buttons on the headphones themselves.  Perhaps a long press of the ANC button.  Press the button quickly to cycle through favorites, long press to enable/disable ANC.

Re: NC 700 disable noise cancel using hardware button

I would also like to weigh in my support for this feature. I get listing fatigue when using ANC for too long. It's especially not needed when in a quiet bedroom or hotel room at night. Should be able to change a setting to enable you turn off the ANC with a hardware button and keep that as default when turning the headphones off and on.
