Great sound!
by Mimimon0917 on 2019/12/11 15:30
I love Bose! The sound is amazing! One suggestion is to note in a prominent place that phone calls only use the right earbud. I kept thinking that there was a problem with my left earbud. Thanks!!

What a joke and a waste
by Tech24073 on 2019/12/11 04:58
I have never been a Bose fan, after buying Bose Glasses, I am done with Bose forever. The connection is unstable and I am stuck in an update loop that is killing both the battery in my phone and the glasses. When they work, they sound okay, not as good as a set of earbuds, I assumed this going in, but their inability to build a working system in the Bose I remember. Don’t waste your money on Bose stuff.
Wish it had ambient noise reduction
by TLEJE on 2019/12/11 01:50
Great product, noise cancellation is amazing, Alexa voice control great. I do wish there was a setting to control ambient noise while on phone call. My Apple AirPods do a much better job at reducing ambient noise. So I use the Bose for phone calls only if in quiet surroundings. I wear the Bose when running my chop saw or air nailer because it doubles as hearing protection, can answer calls and listen to jams.

Bose stereo mode On the app
by Dr haldy on 2019/12/10 06:19
I have two Bose revolve speakers. The stereo mode is awesome. But. Why doesn’t it hook them up together in stereo mode when I turn them on and hook up the blue tooth. All that find the other speaker and have to turn on stereo mode is way below Bose standards. Get that fixed. Then your app would Rock. Thks

Landscape orientation support for iPad
by TofuNatto on 2019/12/08 18:32
What would make this app even better is landscape orientation for the iPad version. While using the iPad in landscape mode and switching over to the Bose app to swap my audio from iPhone to iPad, the Bose app opens up sideways due to not supporting landscape. I can manage with it sideways I suppose, but when I go back to my other apps, now they are switched to portrait mode, and thus show up sideways. And I have to rotate the iPad from landscape orientation to portrait, then back to landscape. Maybe it’s just me. Oh, and even with background refresh on, when coming back to this app from other apps, it always seems to have to refresh. It doesn’t just stay open. iPhone 11/iPad Pro 10.5. Otherwise, this is a great app! Im not sure if this hard to do, but please consider this as a feature!
Super Easy!

Boss Connect
by Funky wet shaving foam on 2019/12/08 09:01
Love this app to connect with my headphones and especially love the find my buds option as my youngest (4 year old) loves to use my headphones and dumps them wherever he decides he’s done using them and they’re great in helping find them. The amount of times he’s left them at my in-laws, day-care and also the car are beyond measure and being able to find them is a relief.
Good but missing some things
by qwertyuiopqawsedrftgyhujikolp on 2019/12/08 02:55

I love the quality for the highs and lows and the mid range is super sharp. Something really strange happen because I carry 2 phones and after my earphones were connected to both phones. After the last update I can connect to 1 phone at a time.The wired Soundsport allows 2 connections at the same time. A little annoying tethering back and forth.

Missing EQ
by cali_guy_0024 on 2019/12/05 01:13
Compared to Sony’s app for noise canceling headphone, this app, Bose in general, lacks the ability to adjust EQ. Major let down. Makes Sony’s headphones sound better (with EQ in their app), even though Bose headphones feel better and sound better without EQ.

Issues with Find my Buds, very frustrating.
by Benjilios on 2019/12/02 20:34
If you lose your wireless headphones and accidentally turn off the location services within the app you will lose your headphones on the app. I didn’t have an account created (thought I had previously done it) so now my headphones are lost and unrecoverable on the app. I think it is pretty frustrating that this app couldn’t save my headphones that I have connected multiple times on it. Sure I made the mistake of turning off the location on the app and turned it on, but for the app not to save my headphones without an account is ridiculous. Hopefully I can find my headphones or that’s 200 dollars down the drain. I’ll replace them with air pods since this app is mediocre.
Used to be good
by dschillinger53 on 2019/12/02 18:03
When I first got my Soundlink speakers and this app, it worked well (though setting it up to play in stereo is unnecessarily complicated). Since the last app update, the streaming has deteriorated to the point of being useless. It constantly skips, jumps and freezes. Please restore the old version.

My Bose Quiet Comfort II has been working fine for a year, but has been having problems the last few versions of this app. I use all Apple products to connect. I have other cheaper Bluetooth devices that connect on a much more consistent basis. I do not recommend.

EQ OPTIONS???
by ZackDaMac on 2019/11/29 21:20
Let’s have an EQ option built in so we can manually adjust the audio ourselves! That would make this app so much not enjoyable in my opinion. I want to increase the amount of bass in my music. This is the only feature this app needs at the moment and I will give it 5 stars. Qqqqqqqqqqqqqqq I want your Feedback!

Difficulty connecting
by rjeudydjsjwj on 2019/11/26 05:11
Party mode is always difficult to set up between Mobile device not found and mobile device lost. Aggravated
Low volume after update.
by USInfantry75 on 2019/11/25 21:04
Headphones worked perfectly and sounded great. After an update, the sound decreased so much that when the volume was n the middle, it was almost a whisper and at max volume I could have a conversation with another person, hearing them perfectly. There was no fix and no way to reverse the firmware upgrade, even with all of the various methods on the internet and Bose community chat rooms. Wired headphones and other headphones worked and sounded perfectly when tested and the Bose Soundsport headphones did not. DO NOT UPDATE your headphones. There is no way to downgrade to a previous firmware version anymore. On the plus side, I contacted Bose and they are replacing my headphones free of charge and including a new one year warranty, which is completely unexpected and nice. My previous pair was about three years old.
Unreliable at best
by seriouslyareyoudoingthis on 2019/11/25 18:16
Sometimes connects, often not on first try. Currently party mode just gives me a whoops error, citing battery (FULL) or distance (.5 meters), so more worthlessness. If it did work, I’d mention the unneeded extra touches you require to turn party mode on. Super lame, in a brand new iPhone pro, very disappointed by this app.
Adjustable equalizer?
by tonyleche on 2019/11/25 02:41
Needs an adjustable equalizer and I feel these could be even better. Please include in an update for the app
New App ZERO iPone XR function AGAIN and AGAIN!!
by W3MQJ on 2019/11/25 01:46
Two years, at least five or six upgrades, and this pathetic piece of crap application still does not work with my S1 PRO speakers. I don’t think it’s possible for you to be insulted at all! I have called you everything but white! I have never been able to get this lousy piece of software to work with your speakers and my iPhone X which has always had the latest update. You can take this current upgrade and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine… Doesn’t this bother you at all? Funny thing… My iPhone 5 SE works perfectly with your speakers… And then I got an iPhone 8. Then the sound would be on one speaker for a few seconds, and then turn off and come back on the other speaker. Back and forth. I finally got the iPhone X, in the hope that you certainly would have worked to make sure you stuff would work now! NOPE! Worse... sound out of one speaker at a time. I am thinking that with the new iPhone 11 it will not work at all! But you have not lifted a single appendage on your pathetic little pencil neck bodies to try to fix or address the problem that you know you have with iPhone X operating the speakers in stereo mode with your Stupid speakers. I can pair to both speakers, no thanks to your app, but music only comes out of one speaker at a time! Who designed your crap Bluetooth hardware? So I mindlessly loaded your new rev! I also have updated the speaker firmware. Still crap as of 11-22-19! All the sales people at Best Buy know how lousy your pairing is and tell customer to stay away from Bose! I hope you are proud of that. The people in your own stores are all useless. They can’t even try to do this themselves because you are too cheap to let the have more than one of the S1 Pros on the floor at a time to demo. I guess I need to expose you on YouTube with a demo of how your stuff does not work, alone with the rest of my story. You need a form to address out here who take the time and tell you our issues. This form is useless with out feed back from you! At least it warns people that you are not supporting people buying you most expensive product, when using it with the latest smartphone technology.

Phone doesn’t always work as it should when making phone calls if headphones are on and nearby even when it is NOT connected to my phone. I also declined to share usage data with Bose but still people on receiving end of phone calls can’t always hear me if my Bose headphones are on and nearby even when disconnected and it doesn’t matter if I unplugged the wire or disconnect Bluetooth. After deleting app, phone still doesn’t work as should but only when headphones are on. Update 11/22/19 I reinstalled app because I’m no longer able to connect headset without the app. Now I’m being forced to agree to let Bose collect my personal data in order to even use app. After I reinstalled app, I also noticed that they still had my previous device information even though at the time I first deleted app it said “Deleting this app will also delete it’s data”. For your information, Bose still keeps your data even after deleting app. Like I said in the title Creepy!...

I am an older professional male who has own a previous model of BOSE headphones and I took it for granted that other manufactures had similar products......so I tried to own and enjoy the SONY 1000 series headphones. After one day of use I was relieved that it had troubles connecting to my iPhone because I was able to return them without a restocking fee. Here is why I was relieved. The 1000 series Sony have HORRIBLE sound when making or receiving phone calls. BOSE connected immediately and allowed me freedom to walk away from iPhone so I didn’t worry about becoming untethered at work by walks up to 20 feet away. This is a BIG thing for me since I wear them all the time during calls. Yes microphones are in the headset so I can continue conversations with my phone left on my desk. The connection to SERI (sp?) is also on the head set and it also allows me access to the internet while away from my hand held iPhone. THAT IS HUGE. I even choose to pay extra for the Rose colored headphone since it is readily identifiable...for obvious reason regarding sticky fingers. Tone is fantastic. Relieved/grateful is my word to the engineers who designed these units.
Now that’s an APP
by FatherGuido on 2019/10/17 04:29
When it comes to headphones, there’s no question that Bose knows their product. When it comes to diversity of that product, maybe there’s a bit too much at times. The saving grace is that the BOSE iPad app does make it aa easier task to find what you need. In my situation, I had purchased the noise cancelling around-ear version back in 2017, and after using them pretty much daily for that period of time, the ear cushion on the right side had gone to ruin, with a hole and general deterioration. I tried looking online for any info at all but without luck. About to go online, I happened to glance at my iPad and saw the BOSE app and thought what the heck, who knows what might be found - like maybe an address for contacting product support. Well, there in the app I found pretty much everything I needed and more, from ear buds to speakers, new and refurbs, AND the parts I needed for my headphones as well as how to install them. It took very little time to get the parts ordered and hopefully, on their way to me. Thanks for creating this app, Bose, because I’d about given up.
Works Pretty Good
by Jacksonlat on 2018/10/19 09:33
The Bose App works as intended. If you have noise cancelling headphones like the Quiet Control 30 it is especially nice because you can easily dial up or down the level of noise cancellation and see a visual graph. You also use this app for firmware updates. This area needs improvement because the process is very slow. Firmware update needs to be redesigned because you have to have the app up and running plus the headphone turned on and in range for the app to transfer the data into the phone. After data transfer to the phone is complete, update to the headphone is fast. What needs to happen is once the data starts transferring to the phone you should be able to turn off the headphones and the data should keep downloading to the phone until complete. Then the next time you turn on the headphone the data should transfer from the phone to the headphone. Currently you have to leave the headphone on for the data to download to the phone. This is a slow process and a pain in the you know where. If you turn the headphone off during this process the data stops downloading to the phone. It will pick back up when you turn the headphone on.
Glitchy App
by DDay41 on 2017/10/08 02:39
This review is for the October 2017 update. I update the app, which is required with Bose QC30 Bluetooth ear pieces, after each update so my one star review isn't unfair. Problem with the app is that function has steadily gotten worse not better. Boses latest update reduced the frequency of one problem only to create another. Around half of the time the sound in the headphones will spontaneously rise until a shrill warning beep sounds 2-3X per second which won’t shut off. The latest problem is a voice command telling me to select English goes off; it can't be turned off until the unit powers down. There is no way to get either of the glitches to stop. Push buttons, disconnect the Bluetooth, charge it, nothing. The volume spontaneously rises or falls and the sound is either earsplitting or non existent. None of the button functions work. If i switch to Apple phones the problems go away. Uninstalling used the app used to correct the problem for a day or so, now it doesn't . The app won’t allow itself to be turned off if BT function is on so you can’t install in on two devices. When running the phone can’t be carried in a pocket, because it keeps turning the screen on resulting in garbled sound. Never a problem with $29 apple Headphones. The app needs serious work. Not recommended. One star for great audio quality, minus 4 for poor execution.
Great app but needs improvement
by Chela_Robles on 2019/04/01 00:28
There are some focus issues with voiceover for blind and visually impaired users using this app yes it is usable but when you are trying to go to the settings for your paired device it just focuses on the other tab for music automatically also a note about the Bose frames I’ve noticed that my voice can sometimes sound like there is static on my end and I’m wondering if you guys can come up with and update to not have that issue or alleviate or illuminate the static in one’s voice it sounds kind of crackly sometimes when I talk on certain applications like the phone or WhatsApp messenger or Facebook messenger or the messages app just to name a few. I am using the latest release of iOS which is 12.2 on an iPhone 8 Plus. Illuminating the static in the background of my voice would be great I know this is a Bluetooth thing but it would still be great to have everything come out even more clear. I mean eliminate, not eluminate.
Simple. Amazing
by chacha918 on 2018/10/08 08:08
I first got this app with my purchase of the Bose Sound Sport Free Earbuds. I instantly loved the interface & simple layout of the app. It was very easy for me to navigate through it and set up my device. I would give it five stars but there is ONE change/upgrade I would like to suggest. When I receive or make calls while using my Sport Free, the call is automatically processed through the phone’s sound system, not the earbuds (I need to manually click on the bluetooth button of my phone screen to continue the call with my earbuds). There isn’t a settings page in which I can change it to automatically connect with my device for calls. Also, the sound of the call is only accessible through the right earbud. It kind of threw me off when it first occurred, and still to this day whenever I make a call with my earbuds in, it feels awkward to have sound coming out of only one ear. I’ve used Bose earphones before and they didn’t process calls like this so it would be great if the Sports Free were also like that too. But with all that considered, it is still a great app for Bose users!
I LOVE THE APP BUT...
by Giancarlo1329 on 2018/12/28 02:49
I love the app but I am encountered an issue with the “find my buds” feature. I recently got myself a pair of Bose SoundSport Free with no problems except “find my buds”. The first time enabling the find my buds feature I was greeted with a pop-up notification asking if I would allow the app to using my location. I was given “Always”, “Only when using the app” and “Never”. I chose only when using the app restricting me from using the feature. When I try to click the “enable find my buds” it navigates me to the iOS settings of the Bose app with no option to enable location services. I’ve tried various ways of trying to fix this issue by deleting and downloading the app again. I’ve concluded, after a long time of testing and failing, that by disabling location services for all apps... -switching to the Bose connect app “enable location services” it brings be to the settings for the connect app with a grayed out option asking if I would enable location services. If a developer or someone with knowledge on this topic, kindly assist me in troubleshooting this issue.
Excellent for my TBI/hearing/migraine symptoms
by Pat burk on 2019/01/26 17:43
I can take the treble down. Reducing the triggers. I have searched since 2003 for pain and confusion relief. I found it with Bose products. Years ago, I sent many emails trying to explain what we need to their tech Dept. Thank you for my Bose 30. I can’t wait to try the new ‘Hearing model”. The poor reviews on these and your fabulous app are caused because they may not have an understanding of their specific tones or medical issues. If you get more specific with your Dr or Bose terrific customer service you could use different headphones and app ability to fine tune the products for your comfort. I hope this helps. I’m afraid they will not stay in the market long enough for me to purchase. It takes a long time to save for something this expensive when you have the costly expense of a TBI or hearing disability. Can Bose find a way to get Medicare to cover your products? For the disabled this would be awesome!
Couldn’t Be More Straightforward!
by Dgowland on 2018/01/13 08:34
This application makes using any Bose product incredibly easy. Effortless really. I have changed my mind on the style of headphones I’ve wanted from them a few times - I now own the QC 30 noise cancelling headphones (around the neck), the Bose Soundsport Wireless and the pair I’ve had for about 4 1/2 years being the QC 25 noise cancelling (over ears). All that said, as soon as the device is connected to your phone, the app knows exactly what device it is (rather than having to search for it) and guides you into properly using the product from the get go. I may not use the app every time I have my headphones on, but it’s very useful and maybe for an IPad or something with a larger screen it’d be more appropriate; but there is a “Now Playing” screen within the app for whatever you may be listening to that has great background pictures that changes with every change of song.
Great overall! Wished it had one additional feature!
by theajus on 2019/06/01 21:53
Overall the app is great! I love the option to turn off noise reduction via the app (sometimes using the noise reduction feature for long periods of time gives me a headache). I just wish they would add the ability to keep the noise cancelling feature off when you turn the headphones off. Right now, you need to have your phone with you (to access the app) in order to turn the noise reduction feature off, and when you power off the headphones, it automatically turns noise reduction back on the next time you turn the headphones on. It’s not a HUGE deal, especially if you always have your phone on you, but there have been times when I wanted to keep my phone in a different room (to prevent distraction while studying), so I couldn’t turn the noise reduction feature off. Again, I realize it’s not a huge deal, but I just wish they would add this feature or have the app available for download on laptops!
Motorcycle heaven.
by Phillip from Clovis on 2018/09/12 17:31
Everyone should wear ear plugs when motorcycle riding, but most do not for the need to hear traffic. The qc 30 is the best of both worlds. With handle bar mounted phone, i can easily adjust the amount of the world I need to ear. With out the app I would not be able to do that because the right side wire controls usually are not outside of my full face helmet. Just did a 770 mile weekend trip and on the open road I enjoyed a quite, peaceful ride while listening to music and hearing the navigation in total clarity. When going thru traffic I decrease the noice cancellation to about 50%. The long battery life of the qc30 is great. I have never worn them long enough to run out of a charge. I absolutely love these ear buds with the smooth non fatiguing sound and satisfying bass, and the in the ear wings keep them in place all day. Wonderful product and a useful app.
Works well, needs a few more features.
by davecgates on 2019/02/05 00:38
This app does fine for what it was designed to do. That said, I wish they would fill it out with features to benefit those of us who own more than one speaker. Specially, I’d like to be able to turn on both of my Revolve Soundlink speakers and have them automatically connect as a stereo pair. It’s not that big a deal to step through adding the second speaker in party mode then switching to stereo mode, but it doesn’t seem like it would be that hard to add an option to automatically place a certain pair of speakers in whatever mode their owner prefers. Also, I’d like to see an option to put them in “shut up” mode where the status change announcements can be turned off. It’s jarring sometimes after you gone to sleep listening to music only to be awakened by the speakers proclaiming their disconnect after your playlist has been over for a half hour.
Bose 30 connect
by Dr Mc2 on 2019/01/01 21:11
Great headphones. I’ve worn over the ear Bose headphones for years when I spend time in the city, AUSTIN, TX. I usually leave because of all the background noises that push me over the edge and I rush back to the surrounding countryside, Wimberley & San Marcos, TX. I always felt a little “obvious” when I would slip on my over the ear headphones as we walked into a loud restaurant or store. Now with my new in ear Bose I sit with the rest of the folks and eat calmly. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the “hearing headphones”. I’m sure my spouse would like to have conversations when we are out to dinner. During dinner my spouse and I agreed to eat and entertain ourselves with our iPhones and talk later on the way home. Keep my email, I’d gladly participate in any customer testing or evaluation of your “hear phones “. I use the app primarily to set the noise canceling level. It illustrates the level of noise canceling very well. I’m also a heavy user of audible and multiple podcast. I like having what I am listening to come up on the app. Much easier than switching between apps. I’ve never used an app with headphones before. I’m sure it will become part of my regular use from now on. Keep up the good work. Making your products technically better AND apps to make the customer experience better!
The app is pretty cool
by Merciless14 on 2019/05/04 16:54
I’ve had the Soundsport Free Buds for about a month with no regrets what so ever. The sound quality is spectacular, the battery life can easily last you all day, on top of that these headphones are extremely comfortable & light, (I forgot that I had them on once when I turned off the music). Finally the App, so the app turned out to be cooler than I thought. First off it has the ability of connecting itself to other Streaming Services such as Apple Music & Tune In, giving you access to both features in one app. It then has a built tracker in the Ear Buds, so if you lose an ear bud you can set off an alarm that screeches it’s location. Also you can find their location using a feature similar to find my IPhone. Over all it makes using the headphones fun.
Good but...
by Nonny17 on 2018/09/08 17:56
The good news: the app is easy, intuitive, and allows pairing of headphones to your phone within a minute or so. The bad news: it doesn’t do all that much. There are several relatively obvious functionalities that could be added to this app that would make it much more useful, such as a user-adjustable frequency equalizer (my favorite) or control of switching between Bluetooth sources. The programmable button on the left ear cup of Bose QC35 IIs (which is the ONLY button on the left ear cup, so should have an important function) has only two allowed uses, which are specified through the app: (1) call up Alexa or Google Assistant, or (2) set noise reduction level. First of all, I’m amazed that Siri isn’t included as an option given the number of iPhones out there. Second, if you do use an iPhone, why have such a prominent button be used to control noise reduction level, since the vast majority of users of the QC35 II’s will forever leave that set on ‘high’? Instead, how about allowing it to be used for one of the functions that are crammed onto the center button of the RIGHT ear cup, so the user doesn’t have to memorize the list of short/long button press combinations that are currently assigned to that button? So overall, right now Bose Connect is a souped up way to connect your phone to Bose headphones. It could be much more, while at the same time making the QC35 II headphones more attractive.

2 Revolve+ in stereo mode rock. Slightly hard to connect .
by Kevilicious1 on 2018/05/27 21:58
Just one Revolve+ sounds awesome. Sound quality to include bass is fantastic. Volume is more than enough. 360 degree sound is a really good feature, indoors and out. When you add a second one, in party mode using the Bose app, it is just another feeling of being further blown away. Then switch on stereo mode. ....magic. That is all I can say. Zero buyer’s remorse. And let’s be honest- they are not cheap. No complaints about the speakers. The fast that they are portable is great because although I live in a very good neighborhood, there can always be someone’s kids around who would be tempted to steal a good set of Bose speakers from my outdoor pavilion. Only irritation, is with the App itself, in that it often takes 2 to 4 attempts to get both speakers working together. No a huge hassle, just wish they would make this work maybe 90% + on the first try. Enjoy.
Superb hardware; lousy app
by Ted in NC on 2018/12/08 02:42
OK; I’m a Bose nut. Have lots of Bose stuff. But as excellent as the QC II headphones are, this Bose Connect app is as bad. And the app is the main gateway to learn how to use the hardware. (If you’re lucky enough to hit the correct button with the headphones on (when you can’t actually see the buttons), the voice prompt is simply to download this app.) I think if I read ALL of the quick tips in the app, I’ll know how most stuff works on the hardware and all this thing can do. But search the app for something as simple as “Standby Timer”, one of the 11 topics under the Settings menu, and be prepared for . . . nothing. Nada. Just a long list of other quick tips, the titles of none of which give remote hope of an actual answer. Is this reason enough to avoid the hardware? Prob not. But why do we put up with this malfeasance and cluelessness in what should be so simple and helpful? Bose: please assign thinking adults to this task. Apple: why do I have to give this 1 of 5 stars to be able to post this review? Why can’t I post giving it 0 stars??
Sound and stability
by Clearstorm forever on 2018/10/28 15:53
I have a company that requires me to answer calls while engaging in very physical and strenuous work and having a way to answer my phone with ease while moving around so aggressively is very important. So losing my wireless device from my ears or not having great connection and sound clarity is something that I cannot afford. That’s why I love my Bose wireless sports! They move with me and stay locked in place, their sound quality is amazing and I can answer all my calls with a push of a button without taking both hands off my work. I love them but the only downside is... when calls come through, it only comes through one ear bud instead of both so calls are a little hard to hear. Music however, that’s always loud and clear.
A seamless sound sensation!
by wibbage on 2019/09/18 12:38
The Bose SoundSports earbuds are my favorite go to whether traveling by plane, riding my bike or lounging around at home. They are a great companion while on my long walks or at the gym when I want to create my own vibe. SoundSports have phenomenal sound quality from the lowest base to highest treble. One button on/off. I prefer their wireless portability. Most of the time when talking on my cell I wear my earbuds because I get the feeling of being up close and personal and I can hear all the nuances plus these include a built in microphone so Im not tethered to my cell. I can do other things like talk while I’m cooking in the kitchen and still feel totally involved in the conversation and much better than using ones speakerphone. First it has longer range for walking around your home or from anywhere. Secondly, they fit snugly in their round canvas type pouch which has an oversized strong metal clip to attach to one’s belt or bag. The SoundSports fit well in my ears without fatigue or the pressure felt by wearing headphones although I realize some wearers prefer headphones. It’s all good. Finally, I like the Bose connection app so I can seamlessly listen whether on my iPad, iPhone or using my tv remote app.
Good but missing a few features
by Aguyontheinternet on 2019/10/28 03:47
I’d really like to be able to edit and/or manage saved connections when the headset isn’t connected. For instance, our Fire Tv always wants to connect automatically when the QC35’s are turned on but that interrupts playback from those watching it when all I want to do is connect to my phone with the headset. Disabling the connection prior to connecting would resolve that. Another thing I want is more music EQ functionality. It doesn’t seem as if the QC35’s or the app support any sort of EQ function, something that Sennheiser sort of rules at. Would definitely like to see this and further functionality implemented already, we are on v.9.x at this point and all the app really does is allow one to see meager device stats and play Apple Music through it for whatever reason.
Love these in ear Bluetooth headphones
by blu_pll on 2019/01/02 23:31
The headphones has a lot more definition than the AirPods I have. There’s bass and these are a lot louder than I expected. I just received it today, so I have a lot more fiddling to do. But with music, it’s fantastic! The app is very useful too. I’m still downloading the firmware update so hopefully everything works out. I wish the app have a separate equalizer function to have more than options in different sounds but it’s very clear already, just as it came by default. I’m enjoying it so far. I think I’ll be listening to a lot music with this Bose Bluetooth sound sports free. I’ll definitely recommend it to anyone interested in buying a wireless in ear headphones. I love it so far!
Landscape orientation support for iPad
by TofuNatto on 2019/12/08 18:32
What would make this app even better is landscape orientation for the iPad version. While using the iPad in landscape mode and switching over to the Bose app to swap my audio from iPhone to iPad, the Bose app opens up sideways due to not supporting landscape. I can manage with it sideways I suppose, but when I go back to my other apps, now they are switched to portrait mode, and thus show up sideways. And I have to rotate the iPad from landscape orientation to portrait, then back to landscape. Maybe it’s just me. Oh, and even with background refresh on, when coming back to this app from other apps, it always seems to have to refresh. It doesn’t just stay open. iPhone 11/iPad Pro 10.5. Otherwise, this is a great app! Im not sure if this hard to do, but please consider this as a feature!
Lacks needed features
by koop1975 on 2018/12/18 05:05
Love the headphones but we need more control. First, we need a way to set nose cancelling to "low" as a the default setting. The high setting gives me headaches, yet I have to open the app every time I turn the headphones on and change it back to low. At times, the app can't find the headphones even though I'm on a call while using them, so I can't change it back and end up paying for it via a headache. The other thing is that it constant connects and disconnects to my other devices that are right next to me. I'm on a phone call not moving, and I keep hearing the ear piercing noise telling me that the headphones are connecting or losing connection to my iPad or MBP. The noise hurts my ears, but just like above, they is no way to turn it off! My QC 35's were going to get upgraded to series II since they have Alexa, but not unless these pain causing issues are addressed. I just want to use them to isolate myself when needed, not give myself headaches and tinitus!
Bluetooth not always easy to pair
by Kevin at ISU on 2019/09/01 06:56
The app works great most of the time! 20% of the time, BT pairing can become troublesome (momentary pairing then losing connection), but that issue is normally resolved by rebooting BT functions on the phone or rarely, killing and restarting the app as well. I have never had the app lose connection once initial pairing had been completed for the listening session. I own two speakers and make use of the stereo function, which gives the speakers a further depth and punch that belie their small construction. While Bose-skinned music controls are featured within the app, I do not use them as they are not required to maintain multi-speaker pairing when listening to music or watching video. App is easy to use, but BT problems are a bit frustrating and prevent a perfect rating.
Love the quality. Wish the came with an optional tether. That would be boss.
by gunpowderhooligan on 2019/07/28 07:31
I bought a different pair of headphones recently to get the fully wireless effect. Didn’t like ‘em. These are phenomenal. A little too much bass for my personal taste, but that’s fine. I’m sensitive to it. Can adjust the equalizer to fix it. Not too much treble, which turns me off more than anything. There’s also a small delay in iPhone text noises. Also overlook-able. But I do wish they had an optional attachment to keep them super over secure. Because at 199 dollars. That’s a hard loss. I’d buy them again, Bose, so, just make it happen. You won’t lose a customer. Also: definitely need dual headphone calling. There’s no reason not to have it, except I think you want us to buy more when you make that a feature.
Good product but poor volume
by AidanMac1 on 2018/11/05 01:46
Great sound quality. Comfortable fit even when sweating or jogging. They never fell out despite my best efforts during squats, jogging, sit ups, etc. Disappointing volume limitations with no ability to override in the app. I’m sure some of the reason is to prevent hearing damage and another component is to meet stated play times and extend battery life. I’d swap 3 hours of regular playback time for one solid intense hour of higher volume playback time. From everything I’ve read on the net about these headphones, my perception about the volume being the one major downside is identical to many others who have purchased this product. Perhaps an update could fix this. Hopefully someone from Bose is reading these reviews and paying attention.🙏 Cheers.
App probably needs update for the new IOS system
by Dr. Eddrick on 2019/10/24 00:31
I have the Quietcomfort 35 headphones and they are amazing. Love the noise canceling feature. Recently, Apple had this IOS update, and my Bose connect app doesn’t seem to be acting right. In my past experience with Apple products, patience is a virtue. The Bose app probably needs updating to work with the new operating system. Just thought I’d give you guys some positive feedback. Thanks Bose, love your products🙂. Update: Discovered I needed to go to Settings, scroll down to the Bose app, click on the > on the right and turn on Bluetooth there. Must be something new with the newest update. All is well now, hope this helps someone else with the same issue.
Best Complement for Your Bose Headphones.
by MusicFogHandler on 2018/05/03 11:47
This managing app for your BOSE headphones does what it needs to. Simple handling for the every day tasks. It connects with ease and allows you to switch between devices the same way. I do have to say that you eventually get used to going into the app to do changes if at some point you like having a certain level of noise cancellation. It would really benefit from small settings storage so that I don’t have to open the app every time to for example reduce noise canceling level as most of the time I’m at a medium level. Unfortunately every time you turn on your headphones that setting gets reset. Other than that, the app is so easy to navigate through that some times you wonder if there anything else you can do with it.
Pretty good so far.
by Sith Lives Matter on 2018/01/30 16:30
Mostly I’d give 5* but I’ve had these head phones less than a week and I’ve already noticed a couple issues. First one was at the Monster Truck show when those engines reved and popped the head phones couldn’t quite keep up with the noise canceling speed wise so the sound was also popping. Not that I’m around that type of noise a lot, but it doesn’t give me much hope for how they will handle at the shooting range. I guess time will tell. Second issue was on a phone conversation on a long drive. Out of the blue that same intermittent audio popping sound started for no reason and the person I was talking to said they could hardly hear me so I had to switch back to my sound link headphones. Aside from that it’s worked pretty well.
Good high 5 Joe_AES_co.
by Joe_AES_co. on 2018/10/25 20:51
Not really a review or I maybe mistaken since this can only due two devices it shouldn’t matter the master or slave device and also normally a person has two device at any given time is possible can you make it possible to have end user choose who will be the master I my self work at most time at least two places home and job site and sometimes if god given more than two job sites I would like my phone to be the master so when i leave it out of Bluetooth range will lock the device being used and will only open when I and the phone are in one place and prompt with my finger on my iPhones. Over all this app is good and a high five.
Convenient, easy to use app.
by LD or TB on 2018/05/20 02:28
Nice app to augment the features & benefits of my Bose sound tools aside from just connecting via bluetooth. Didn’t realize I could answer phone calls while listening to music on my Bose Revolve until I synced it via the app. Can also add some of my local radio stations as favorites in the app. Nice add-on features. Not an expert audiophile but love great sound & music. Really enjoy my Bose Revolve SoundLink as a portable single point sound system that provides much richer sound than you might expect. That was an awesome gift from my wife & kids. Also, just recently purchased the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones which i really enjoy for pure solitude music listening.
TERRIBLE update for the app
by FN annoyed on 2018/03/18 02:54
I think a lot people here forget that these App Store reviews are meant for the app, not the headphones. I love my headphones but the Bose Connect app is terrible. I honestly NEVER write reviews but I am so incredibly annoyed by this app that I thought maybe if I write a review they’ll do something (wishful thinking). The last update for this app made it so so so much worse. My headphones are now incredibly glitchy. I use my headphones mainly to study, which is like 90% of the time so this is getting on my nerves. The headphones sometimes appear to be connected to a device because I see the logo on the screen but it won’t play the audio. They spontaneously disconnect from my devices and connecting them back is a pain. The mic on the headphones randomly turns on and there is nothing I can do to turn it off except wait until it does so by itself. The updates are terrible. Period. They get worse every time.
Audio stutters
by drzero3 on 2018/03/30 14:01
I noticed that both my Quietcomfort and Soundsport Free have issues with audio. If I slightly turn away from the source then audio cuts out. It’s even worse with the Soundsport Free. I’m maybe about a couple of feet away and audio disconnects. This is in front of both my iPhone and computer. I’m a bit confused why an update could hurt my audio. The previous update was fine and maybe had some work but I really couldn't complain, it worked well! Please fix this ASAP! I don’t want audio stutter and also fix the update process! It’s slow and wastes battery cycles! How about allow the app to download software (this should not take half and hour) as soon as one is available, then allow me to install at my leisure. The install process takes seconds. See what’s wrong here? Give me quick, stable, and reliable headphones that Bose is known for!
Easy and convenient… Excellent!
by Russ’ toys on 2018/03/31 20:36
I am not only impressed with the app… But the speakers I bought two. I bought two Bose micro speakers that can now be in party mode or in left right stereo! They make it so easy it’s almost ridiculous :-) I have 2 Altec Lansing speakers that cost twice as much that were supposed to do the same, and they are garbage… They sound OK, but they’re at people have gotten a one star for years! You can’t even separate the left and right stereo anymore… Thank you Bose!!! The speaker quality is obviously those! Great job! Thank you again… I will never buy another all tech Lansing speaker again… Even when you called your company, they are rude and don’t help you!
Bose for the win on audio quality
by SonikDoom on 2019/01/18 04:46
I’m an audio engineer, and yes, I know Bose tends to catch some flak from our community, but I’ve yet to find a negative thing about any of their gear aside from price, lol... but totally worth the money. Use my SoundSport phones and AcoustiMass system to reference my final mixes. And they do the job BEAUTIFULLY. When I’m actually mixing my projects I use a Yamaha HS8 setup. Crappy speakers to mix through. Then play through my Bose gear to hear the end product. Night and day results. The audio is so well balanced and so rich no matter what I have playing through them. Hoping to snag a set of the SoundSport pods soon. Keep up the good work, Bose. You help keep audio sounding amazing.
Connect and Go
by Pin-Din7 on 2018/12/01 16:03
I have to admit the app works just fine. You know how you usually have a problem with apps and everybody's complaining even main users (I'm looking at you iTunes). That's not the case with Bose Connect does require a large amount space however that I'm not happy about because what if someone doesn't have a large amount of space on their phone from the beginning(5gb total for me) which is why I give it the 4 star. I received my soundlink Micro 2 days ago in the mail and even though setting up the firmware took awhile but at least it completed which is all that I care for there was no failed to install firmware notification. So no repeats. You can connect and move right along!
Nice headphones but..
by desaraev on 2017/12/31 03:10
Having a lot of trouble connecting to Google assistant. Also wish it had the keyword feature for ambient noise that some other headphones have so I can tell if people are talking to me or a horn is honked etc. I want to safely wear them in public. I have a q35 II. Also love the idea of hearphones, for as expensive as these are, would be cool to have headphones that offer everything. The app doesn't show how to shut off headphones. Would also like in app feedback and support. UX is fairly simple but could do more. Maybe overly simplified. Wish the Google assistant button could also manage noise cancelling at the same or have another button. Would also like to set my default music station and app if I just hit play.
Testing out the nose Qc35
by philcanchill on 2018/06/09 11:16
My wife just bought these for my birthday. After reading all the reviews about how they cancel out the noise around you I find mine are not working according to the reviews I have read. I’m sitting at the airport doing a trial with these and I’m beginning to wonder just how well they will do on the plane. If the results on the plane are no different than they are with me sitting here at the gate I will return them for another pair, these could be lemon. I have read too many reviews from other people having the same headphones to believe that they wouldn’t be better than what I’m experiencing. I have the noise reduction set on high as well.
Unhooked
by Daddy's girl 2011 on 2019/02/18 18:59
I really do like the sound quality of these earbuds. The only real problem I’ve found is that the hook used to hold the earbuds to my clothing is not dependable and since I spent over $100 on these, I’d really rather not lose them because of a detachable hook. I have gone through 4 hooks so far and I’ve had these earbuds less than a year. Thank goodness I was able to contact Bose and get extra hooks at no additional charge, (because they’re still under warranty). The hook allows the earbuds to come unattached to your clothes because it can be unattached. I’ve had my buds fall off my neck while walking/jogging and have even tripped over them once! Thank goodness I did or I might not have even realized they had fallen off. Definitely a designer flaw that should be revisited.
Auto-Shut Off Settings!
by Xalea on 2019/01/12 01:04
I was so annoyed because the headphones kept dying. I’d always forget to flip the switch. It seemed archaic that they didn’t come with an auto shut-off function. I’d been through the Settings in app and didn’t see it until just now. I almost wonder if it wasn’t there before.. similarly I kept trying to change the Assistant to Alexa. I eventually gave up because it would never appear as an option no matter what I did. Again just now, there it was. I strongly believe Bose must’ve updated this app recently and fixed some kind of bugs etc. At any rate, at least it’s working properly now!
It's decent, but still needs work.
by SnowflakeDancer360 on 2017/11/23 20:15
Personally, I LOVE Bose products itself. This app is well displayed and everything! However, I do not understand the purpose, considering you can do most of the features that are in the app, outside the app. Playing music can be done outside the app, as well as renaming the device, connecting to the device, etc. Connecting is hard to do inside the app, especially considering most of the steps need to be done outside the app. Though, there are some cool things that you can't do outside the app, such as party mode, which I actually really love considering you can have speakers everywhere in your house, and you can just use one device to play music on all of them. Overall, this app does have some downsides, but it's still pretty good.
Please add auto-noise cancellation off
by Subuv on 2017/12/15 21:23
It is a real pain to switch off noise cancellation after listening. Most times I forget and noise cancellation continues even after I have put down the headphones. Of course, the battery then runs out. It would be good if i noise cancellation turns off automatically after X minutes the music has stopped. I realize some folks want noise cancellation to continue even when not listening to music. That is fine. Just provide the option in your App Bose Connect - Turn noise cancellation off after X minutes or never. The user can choose. The default can be never which is current behavior.
Ron’s Delta Bose 30s
by Ron's Delta on 2019/05/11 16:15
I have had two pairs, my first pair I had to take back to store because the charging plug on the head set seem to be some sort of problem. Resulting in the Bose 30 not able to charge. I assure you on my end there was no abuse as far force or bounced off the floor kinda of thing. I was surprise to learn that was the problem myself. My second pair has been with me 3 months and had no problems. As for sound Bose 30 they are truly the best. I worked my way up to Bose 30s, trying out 3 other brands prior to these Bose 30s. I am truly happy about with my purchase. A total satisfaction for these Bose 30s is my option is the Best. Thank You Bose.
A feature needs fixed
by Devon123Bone on 2018/02/14 17:34
I see a lot of reviews are reviewing the Headphones, not the software within the headphones which can be updated and controlled by this app. Everything is wonderful except for the fact that the app rearranges connection priorities between devices. I always have it set to connect to my phone first, but sometimes it tries to connect to my computer first and when it can’t find it an endless attempt of trying to connect to the computer ensues. Then I have to manually go to the app, set the headphones to ready to pair, then connect to my phone. When I set the connection list, I want it to stay there so that it only connects to my computer when the computer is around. Fix this and everything will be flawless.
Exceptional sound And Great Fit
by Nabil . A on 2017/12/29 08:27
Doesn’t fall out of my ears and has exceptional sound. Noise Cancelation is excellent on this product. Love the wire free Bluetooth connection. Could have made the charging case a little smaller. The range on the Bluetooth connection isn’t too great you get about 10-12 feet. Pairing isn’t an issue as long you download the Bose connect app and pick up the right earphone first. I really like the find my buds feature and battery life is superb. Overall it’s a great product especially for folks who like to exercise and or like to enjoy the favorite music enhanced with exceptional sound and noise cancellation. Improvement areas include Bluetooth range, size of case, and bass treble custom options on the app.
Does any Bose engineer actually use this?
by ScottPNW on 2017/12/24 03:15
First I was required to update before using. That seems innocent enough, unless you are on an airplane when you try to use your headphones and get that message. It is really difficult or impossible to download an update on an airplane. It actually takes about 20-30 minutes even with good bandwidth because the Bluetooth update installation is so slow. And gee, I wonder if people buy them for airplanes? Too bad! Not for this flight! Now I’m being told to “allow new connections” in Control Panel or Settings. There is no Control Panel in an iPhone and there is no “allow new connections” in an iPhone’s Settings, Bluetooth as they attempt to illustrate in the app. So here I am again, unable to move forward or use the app. I think I have a success rate of about 2/5 flights now.
Good overall
by Emily015Z on 2017/12/19 00:59
Good overall. I have two Bose Soundlink Revolve+s and the app is able to remotely turn on the one closest to me and control the volume. I wish the app could turn on both of the speakers remotely and perhaps even shut them off remotely as well, but mostly just to turn both of them on remotely. Also I wish that the connection with Alexa was a lot smoother. Sometimes I will have to clear the Bluetooth list and start over in order to get Alexa to connect to the speakers. Also it would be nice if Alexa could connect to both of the speakers at the same time but that’s more of an Alexa issue rather than Bose. I like that the speakers get software updates through the app. Great products and good app.

What a joke and a waste
by Tech24073 on 2019/12/11 04:58
I have never been a Bose fan, after buying Bose Glasses, I am done with Bose forever. The connection is unstable and I am stuck in an update loop that is killing both the battery in my phone and the glasses. When they work, they sound okay, not as good as a set of earbuds, I assumed this going in, but their inability to build a working system in the Bose I remember. Don’t waste your money on Bose stuff.
Wish it had ambient noise reduction
by TLEJE on 2019/12/11 01:50
Great product, noise cancellation is amazing, Alexa voice control great. I do wish there was a setting to control ambient noise while on phone call. My Apple AirPods do a much better job at reducing ambient noise. So I use the Bose for phone calls only if in quiet surroundings. I wear the Bose when running my chop saw or air nailer because it doubles as hearing protection, can answer calls and listen to jams.

Bose stereo mode On the app
by Dr haldy on 2019/12/10 06:19
I have two Bose revolve speakers. The stereo mode is awesome. But. Why doesn’t it hook them up together in stereo mode when I turn them on and hook up the blue tooth. All that find the other speaker and have to turn on stereo mode is way below Bose standards. Get that fixed. Then your app would Rock. Thks

Landscape orientation support for iPad
by TofuNatto on 2019/12/08 18:32
What would make this app even better is landscape orientation for the iPad version. While using the iPad in landscape mode and switching over to the Bose app to swap my audio from iPhone to iPad, the Bose app opens up sideways due to not supporting landscape. I can manage with it sideways I suppose, but when I go back to my other apps, now they are switched to portrait mode, and thus show up sideways. And I have to rotate the iPad from landscape orientation to portrait, then back to landscape. Maybe it’s just me. Oh, and even with background refresh on, when coming back to this app from other apps, it always seems to have to refresh. It doesn’t just stay open. iPhone 11/iPad Pro 10.5. Otherwise, this is a great app! Im not sure if this hard to do, but please consider this as a feature!
Super Easy!
by kendallchanel on 2019/12/08 17:56

Boss Connect
by Funky wet shaving foam on 2019/12/08 09:01
Love this app to connect with my headphones and especially love the find my buds option as my youngest (4 year old) loves to use my headphones and dumps them wherever he decides he’s done using them and they’re great in helping find them. The amount of times he’s left them at my in-laws, day-care and also the car are beyond measure and being able to find them is a relief.
Good but missing some things
by qwertyuiopqawsedrftgyhujikolp on 2019/12/08 02:55

I love the quality for the highs and lows and the mid range is super sharp. Something really strange happen because I carry 2 phones and after my earphones were connected to both phones. After the last update I can connect to 1 phone at a time.The wired Soundsport allows 2 connections at the same time. A little annoying tethering back and forth.

Missing EQ
by cali_guy_0024 on 2019/12/05 01:13
Compared to Sony’s app for noise canceling headphone, this app, Bose in general, lacks the ability to adjust EQ. Major let down. Makes Sony’s headphones sound better (with EQ in their app), even though Bose headphones feel better and sound better without EQ.

Issues with Find my Buds, very frustrating.
by Benjilios on 2019/12/02 20:34
If you lose your wireless headphones and accidentally turn off the location services within the app you will lose your headphones on the app. I didn’t have an account created (thought I had previously done it) so now my headphones are lost and unrecoverable on the app. I think it is pretty frustrating that this app couldn’t save my headphones that I have connected multiple times on it. Sure I made the mistake of turning off the location on the app and turned it on, but for the app not to save my headphones without an account is ridiculous. Hopefully I can find my headphones or that’s 200 dollars down the drain. I’ll replace them with air pods since this app is mediocre.
Used to be good
by dschillinger53 on 2019/12/02 18:03
When I first got my Soundlink speakers and this app, it worked well (though setting it up to play in stereo is unnecessarily complicated). Since the last app update, the streaming has deteriorated to the point of being useless. It constantly skips, jumps and freezes. Please restore the old version.

My Bose Quiet Comfort II has been working fine for a year, but has been having problems the last few versions of this app. I use all Apple products to connect. I have other cheaper Bluetooth devices that connect on a much more consistent basis. I do not recommend.

Let’s have an EQ option built in so we can manually adjust the audio ourselves! That would make this app so much not enjoyable in my opinion. I want to increase the amount of bass in my music. This is the only feature this app needs at the moment and I will give it 5 stars. Qqqqqqqqqqqqqqq I want your Feedback!

Good app, but wish it connected to spotify
by morganreed17 on 2019/11/26 08:01
Works really well, I can connect to and control my speaker through the app. But I wish it could connect Spotify. At the moment I can only connect to Apple Music and the Tune In app.
Difficulty connecting

Party mode is always difficult to set up between Mobile device not found and mobile device lost. Aggravated
Low volume after update.
by USInfantry75 on 2019/11/25 21:04
Headphones worked perfectly and sounded great. After an update, the sound decreased so much that when the volume was n the middle, it was almost a whisper and at max volume I could have a conversation with another person, hearing them perfectly. There was no fix and no way to reverse the firmware upgrade, even with all of the various methods on the internet and Bose community chat rooms. Wired headphones and other headphones worked and sounded perfectly when tested and the Bose Soundsport headphones did not. DO NOT UPDATE your headphones. There is no way to downgrade to a previous firmware version anymore. On the plus side, I contacted Bose and they are replacing my headphones free of charge and including a new one year warranty, which is completely unexpected and nice. My previous pair was about three years old.
Unreliable at best
by seriouslyareyoudoingthis on 2019/11/25 18:16
Sometimes connects, often not on first try. Currently party mode just gives me a whoops error, citing battery (FULL) or distance (.5 meters), so more worthlessness. If it did work, I’d mention the unneeded extra touches you require to turn party mode on. Super lame, in a brand new iPhone pro, very disappointed by this app.
Adjustable equalizer?
by tonyleche on 2019/11/25 02:41
Needs an adjustable equalizer and I feel these could be even better. Please include in an update for the app
New App ZERO iPone XR function AGAIN and AGAIN!!
by W3MQJ on 2019/11/25 01:46
Two years, at least five or six upgrades, and this pathetic piece of crap application still does not work with my S1 PRO speakers. I don’t think it’s possible for you to be insulted at all! I have called you everything but white! I have never been able to get this lousy piece of software to work with your speakers and my iPhone X which has always had the latest update. You can take this current upgrade and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine… Doesn’t this bother you at all? Funny thing… My iPhone 5 SE works perfectly with your speakers… And then I got an iPhone 8. Then the sound would be on one speaker for a few seconds, and then turn off and come back on the other speaker. Back and forth. I finally got the iPhone X, in the hope that you certainly would have worked to make sure you stuff would work now! NOPE! Worse... sound out of one speaker at a time. I am thinking that with the new iPhone 11 it will not work at all! But you have not lifted a single appendage on your pathetic little pencil neck bodies to try to fix or address the problem that you know you have with iPhone X operating the speakers in stereo mode with your Stupid speakers. I can pair to both speakers, no thanks to your app, but music only comes out of one speaker at a time! Who designed your crap Bluetooth hardware? So I mindlessly loaded your new rev! I also have updated the speaker firmware. Still crap as of 11-22-19! All the sales people at Best Buy know how lousy your pairing is and tell customer to stay away from Bose! I hope you are proud of that. The people in your own stores are all useless. They can’t even try to do this themselves because you are too cheap to let the have more than one of the S1 Pros on the floor at a time to demo. I guess I need to expose you on YouTube with a demo of how your stuff does not work, alone with the rest of my story. You need a form to address out here who take the time and tell you our issues. This form is useless with out feed back from you! At least it warns people that you are not supporting people buying you most expensive product, when using it with the latest smartphone technology.

Love the app, easy to use and navigate. Find my Bose Buds is awesome.
Love it but would like EQ settings
by Goddessinas on 2019/11/24 20:46
That is my only issue is that I wish the app had built-in EQ settings to change the audio quality and distribution of treble/bass and whatnot. Otherwise it’s a helpful app.

Phone doesn’t always work as it should when making phone calls if headphones are on and nearby even when it is NOT connected to my phone. I also declined to share usage data with Bose but still people on receiving end of phone calls can’t always hear me if my Bose headphones are on and nearby even when disconnected and it doesn’t matter if I unplugged the wire or disconnect Bluetooth. After deleting app, phone still doesn’t work as should but only when headphones are on. Update 11/22/19 I reinstalled app because I’m no longer able to connect headset without the app. Now I’m being forced to agree to let Bose collect my personal data in order to even use app. After I reinstalled app, I also noticed that they still had my previous device information even though at the time I first deleted app it said “Deleting this app will also delete it’s data”. For your information, Bose still keeps your data even after deleting app. Like I said in the title Creepy!...

I am an older professional male who has own a previous model of BOSE headphones and I took it for granted that other manufactures had similar products......so I tried to own and enjoy the SONY 1000 series headphones. After one day of use I was relieved that it had troubles connecting to my iPhone because I was able to return them without a restocking fee. Here is why I was relieved. The 1000 series Sony have HORRIBLE sound when making or receiving phone calls. BOSE connected immediately and allowed me freedom to walk away from iPhone so I didn’t worry about becoming untethered at work by walks up to 20 feet away. This is a BIG thing for me since I wear them all the time during calls. Yes microphones are in the headset so I can continue conversations with my phone left on my desk. The connection to SERI (sp?) is also on the head set and it also allows me access to the internet while away from my hand held iPhone. THAT IS HUGE. I even choose to pay extra for the Rose colored headphone since it is readily identifiable...for obvious reason regarding sticky fingers. Tone is fantastic. Relieved/grateful is my word to the engineers who designed these units.
Now that’s an APP
by FatherGuido on 2019/10/17 04:29
When it comes to headphones, there’s no question that Bose knows their product. When it comes to diversity of that product, maybe there’s a bit too much at times. The saving grace is that the BOSE iPad app does make it aa easier task to find what you need. In my situation, I had purchased the noise cancelling around-ear version back in 2017, and after using them pretty much daily for that period of time, the ear cushion on the right side had gone to ruin, with a hole and general deterioration. I tried looking online for any info at all but without luck. About to go online, I happened to glance at my iPad and saw the BOSE app and thought what the heck, who knows what might be found - like maybe an address for contacting product support. Well, there in the app I found pretty much everything I needed and more, from ear buds to speakers, new and refurbs, AND the parts I needed for my headphones as well as how to install them. It took very little time to get the parts ordered and hopefully, on their way to me. Thanks for creating this app, Bose, because I’d about given up.
Works Pretty Good
by Jacksonlat on 2018/10/19 09:33
The Bose App works as intended. If you have noise cancelling headphones like the Quiet Control 30 it is especially nice because you can easily dial up or down the level of noise cancellation and see a visual graph. You also use this app for firmware updates. This area needs improvement because the process is very slow. Firmware update needs to be redesigned because you have to have the app up and running plus the headphone turned on and in range for the app to transfer the data into the phone. After data transfer to the phone is complete, update to the headphone is fast. What needs to happen is once the data starts transferring to the phone you should be able to turn off the headphones and the data should keep downloading to the phone until complete. Then the next time you turn on the headphone the data should transfer from the phone to the headphone. Currently you have to leave the headphone on for the data to download to the phone. This is a slow process and a pain in the you know where. If you turn the headphone off during this process the data stops downloading to the phone. It will pick back up when you turn the headphone on.
Glitchy App
by DDay41 on 2017/10/08 02:39
This review is for the October 2017 update. I update the app, which is required with Bose QC30 Bluetooth ear pieces, after each update so my one star review isn't unfair. Problem with the app is that function has steadily gotten worse not better. Boses latest update reduced the frequency of one problem only to create another. Around half of the time the sound in the headphones will spontaneously rise until a shrill warning beep sounds 2-3X per second which won’t shut off. The latest problem is a voice command telling me to select English goes off; it can't be turned off until the unit powers down. There is no way to get either of the glitches to stop. Push buttons, disconnect the Bluetooth, charge it, nothing. The volume spontaneously rises or falls and the sound is either earsplitting or non existent. None of the button functions work. If i switch to Apple phones the problems go away. Uninstalling used the app used to correct the problem for a day or so, now it doesn't . The app won’t allow itself to be turned off if BT function is on so you can’t install in on two devices. When running the phone can’t be carried in a pocket, because it keeps turning the screen on resulting in garbled sound. Never a problem with $29 apple Headphones. The app needs serious work. Not recommended. One star for great audio quality, minus 4 for poor execution.
Great app but needs improvement
by Chela_Robles on 2019/04/01 00:28
There are some focus issues with voiceover for blind and visually impaired users using this app yes it is usable but when you are trying to go to the settings for your paired device it just focuses on the other tab for music automatically also a note about the Bose frames I’ve noticed that my voice can sometimes sound like there is static on my end and I’m wondering if you guys can come up with and update to not have that issue or alleviate or illuminate the static in one’s voice it sounds kind of crackly sometimes when I talk on certain applications like the phone or WhatsApp messenger or Facebook messenger or the messages app just to name a few. I am using the latest release of iOS which is 12.2 on an iPhone 8 Plus. Illuminating the static in the background of my voice would be great I know this is a Bluetooth thing but it would still be great to have everything come out even more clear. I mean eliminate, not eluminate.
Simple. Amazing
by chacha918 on 2018/10/08 08:08
I first got this app with my purchase of the Bose Sound Sport Free Earbuds. I instantly loved the interface & simple layout of the app. It was very easy for me to navigate through it and set up my device. I would give it five stars but there is ONE change/upgrade I would like to suggest. When I receive or make calls while using my Sport Free, the call is automatically processed through the phone’s sound system, not the earbuds (I need to manually click on the bluetooth button of my phone screen to continue the call with my earbuds). There isn’t a settings page in which I can change it to automatically connect with my device for calls. Also, the sound of the call is only accessible through the right earbud. It kind of threw me off when it first occurred, and still to this day whenever I make a call with my earbuds in, it feels awkward to have sound coming out of only one ear. I’ve used Bose earphones before and they didn’t process calls like this so it would be great if the Sports Free were also like that too. But with all that considered, it is still a great app for Bose users!
I LOVE THE APP BUT...
by Giancarlo1329 on 2018/12/28 02:49
I love the app but I am encountered an issue with the “find my buds” feature. I recently got myself a pair of Bose SoundSport Free with no problems except “find my buds”. The first time enabling the find my buds feature I was greeted with a pop-up notification asking if I would allow the app to using my location. I was given “Always”, “Only when using the app” and “Never”. I chose only when using the app restricting me from using the feature. When I try to click the “enable find my buds” it navigates me to the iOS settings of the Bose app with no option to enable location services. I’ve tried various ways of trying to fix this issue by deleting and downloading the app again. I’ve concluded, after a long time of testing and failing, that by disabling location services for all apps... -switching to the Bose connect app “enable location services” it brings be to the settings for the connect app with a grayed out option asking if I would enable location services. If a developer or someone with knowledge on this topic, kindly assist me in troubleshooting this issue.
Excellent for my TBI/hearing/migraine symptoms
by Pat burk on 2019/01/26 17:43
I can take the treble down. Reducing the triggers. I have searched since 2003 for pain and confusion relief. I found it with Bose products. Years ago, I sent many emails trying to explain what we need to their tech Dept. Thank you for my Bose 30. I can’t wait to try the new ‘Hearing model”. The poor reviews on these and your fabulous app are caused because they may not have an understanding of their specific tones or medical issues. If you get more specific with your Dr or Bose terrific customer service you could use different headphones and app ability to fine tune the products for your comfort. I hope this helps. I’m afraid they will not stay in the market long enough for me to purchase. It takes a long time to save for something this expensive when you have the costly expense of a TBI or hearing disability. Can Bose find a way to get Medicare to cover your products? For the disabled this would be awesome!
Couldn’t Be More Straightforward!
by Dgowland on 2018/01/13 08:34
This application makes using any Bose product incredibly easy. Effortless really. I have changed my mind on the style of headphones I’ve wanted from them a few times - I now own the QC 30 noise cancelling headphones (around the neck), the Bose Soundsport Wireless and the pair I’ve had for about 4 1/2 years being the QC 25 noise cancelling (over ears). All that said, as soon as the device is connected to your phone, the app knows exactly what device it is (rather than having to search for it) and guides you into properly using the product from the get go. I may not use the app every time I have my headphones on, but it’s very useful and maybe for an IPad or something with a larger screen it’d be more appropriate; but there is a “Now Playing” screen within the app for whatever you may be listening to that has great background pictures that changes with every change of song.
Great overall! Wished it had one additional feature!
by theajus on 2019/06/01 21:53
Overall the app is great! I love the option to turn off noise reduction via the app (sometimes using the noise reduction feature for long periods of time gives me a headache). I just wish they would add the ability to keep the noise cancelling feature off when you turn the headphones off. Right now, you need to have your phone with you (to access the app) in order to turn the noise reduction feature off, and when you power off the headphones, it automatically turns noise reduction back on the next time you turn the headphones on. It’s not a HUGE deal, especially if you always have your phone on you, but there have been times when I wanted to keep my phone in a different room (to prevent distraction while studying), so I couldn’t turn the noise reduction feature off. Again, I realize it’s not a huge deal, but I just wish they would add this feature or have the app available for download on laptops!
Motorcycle heaven.
by Phillip from Clovis on 2018/09/12 17:31
Everyone should wear ear plugs when motorcycle riding, but most do not for the need to hear traffic. The qc 30 is the best of both worlds. With handle bar mounted phone, i can easily adjust the amount of the world I need to ear. With out the app I would not be able to do that because the right side wire controls usually are not outside of my full face helmet. Just did a 770 mile weekend trip and on the open road I enjoyed a quite, peaceful ride while listening to music and hearing the navigation in total clarity. When going thru traffic I decrease the noice cancellation to about 50%. The long battery life of the qc30 is great. I have never worn them long enough to run out of a charge. I absolutely love these ear buds with the smooth non fatiguing sound and satisfying bass, and the in the ear wings keep them in place all day. Wonderful product and a useful app.
Works well, needs a few more features.
by davecgates on 2019/02/05 00:38
This app does fine for what it was designed to do. That said, I wish they would fill it out with features to benefit those of us who own more than one speaker. Specially, I’d like to be able to turn on both of my Revolve Soundlink speakers and have them automatically connect as a stereo pair. It’s not that big a deal to step through adding the second speaker in party mode then switching to stereo mode, but it doesn’t seem like it would be that hard to add an option to automatically place a certain pair of speakers in whatever mode their owner prefers. Also, I’d like to see an option to put them in “shut up” mode where the status change announcements can be turned off. It’s jarring sometimes after you gone to sleep listening to music only to be awakened by the speakers proclaiming their disconnect after your playlist has been over for a half hour.
Bose 30 connect
by Dr Mc2 on 2019/01/01 21:11
Great headphones. I’ve worn over the ear Bose headphones for years when I spend time in the city, AUSTIN, TX. I usually leave because of all the background noises that push me over the edge and I rush back to the surrounding countryside, Wimberley & San Marcos, TX. I always felt a little “obvious” when I would slip on my over the ear headphones as we walked into a loud restaurant or store. Now with my new in ear Bose I sit with the rest of the folks and eat calmly. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the “hearing headphones”. I’m sure my spouse would like to have conversations when we are out to dinner. During dinner my spouse and I agreed to eat and entertain ourselves with our iPhones and talk later on the way home. Keep my email, I’d gladly participate in any customer testing or evaluation of your “hear phones “. I use the app primarily to set the noise canceling level. It illustrates the level of noise canceling very well. I’m also a heavy user of audible and multiple podcast. I like having what I am listening to come up on the app. Much easier than switching between apps. I’ve never used an app with headphones before. I’m sure it will become part of my regular use from now on. Keep up the good work. Making your products technically better AND apps to make the customer experience better!
The app is pretty cool
by Merciless14 on 2019/05/04 16:54
I’ve had the Soundsport Free Buds for about a month with no regrets what so ever. The sound quality is spectacular, the battery life can easily last you all day, on top of that these headphones are extremely comfortable & light, (I forgot that I had them on once when I turned off the music). Finally the App, so the app turned out to be cooler than I thought. First off it has the ability of connecting itself to other Streaming Services such as Apple Music & Tune In, giving you access to both features in one app. It then has a built tracker in the Ear Buds, so if you lose an ear bud you can set off an alarm that screeches it’s location. Also you can find their location using a feature similar to find my IPhone. Over all it makes using the headphones fun.
Good but...
by Nonny17 on 2018/09/08 17:56
The good news: the app is easy, intuitive, and allows pairing of headphones to your phone within a minute or so. The bad news: it doesn’t do all that much. There are several relatively obvious functionalities that could be added to this app that would make it much more useful, such as a user-adjustable frequency equalizer (my favorite) or control of switching between Bluetooth sources. The programmable button on the left ear cup of Bose QC35 IIs (which is the ONLY button on the left ear cup, so should have an important function) has only two allowed uses, which are specified through the app: (1) call up Alexa or Google Assistant, or (2) set noise reduction level. First of all, I’m amazed that Siri isn’t included as an option given the number of iPhones out there. Second, if you do use an iPhone, why have such a prominent button be used to control noise reduction level, since the vast majority of users of the QC35 II’s will forever leave that set on ‘high’? Instead, how about allowing it to be used for one of the functions that are crammed onto the center button of the RIGHT ear cup, so the user doesn’t have to memorize the list of short/long button press combinations that are currently assigned to that button? So overall, right now Bose Connect is a souped up way to connect your phone to Bose headphones. It could be much more, while at the same time making the QC35 II headphones more attractive.

2 Revolve+ in stereo mode rock. Slightly hard to connect .
by Kevilicious1 on 2018/05/27 21:58
Just one Revolve+ sounds awesome. Sound quality to include bass is fantastic. Volume is more than enough. 360 degree sound is a really good feature, indoors and out. When you add a second one, in party mode using the Bose app, it is just another feeling of being further blown away. Then switch on stereo mode. ....magic. That is all I can say. Zero buyer’s remorse. And let’s be honest- they are not cheap. No complaints about the speakers. The fast that they are portable is great because although I live in a very good neighborhood, there can always be someone’s kids around who would be tempted to steal a good set of Bose speakers from my outdoor pavilion. Only irritation, is with the App itself, in that it often takes 2 to 4 attempts to get both speakers working together. No a huge hassle, just wish they would make this work maybe 90% + on the first try. Enjoy.
Superb hardware; lousy app
by Ted in NC on 2018/12/08 02:42
OK; I’m a Bose nut. Have lots of Bose stuff. But as excellent as the QC II headphones are, this Bose Connect app is as bad. And the app is the main gateway to learn how to use the hardware. (If you’re lucky enough to hit the correct button with the headphones on (when you can’t actually see the buttons), the voice prompt is simply to download this app.) I think if I read ALL of the quick tips in the app, I’ll know how most stuff works on the hardware and all this thing can do. But search the app for something as simple as “Standby Timer”, one of the 11 topics under the Settings menu, and be prepared for . . . nothing. Nada. Just a long list of other quick tips, the titles of none of which give remote hope of an actual answer. Is this reason enough to avoid the hardware? Prob not. But why do we put up with this malfeasance and cluelessness in what should be so simple and helpful? Bose: please assign thinking adults to this task. Apple: why do I have to give this 1 of 5 stars to be able to post this review? Why can’t I post giving it 0 stars??
Sound and stability
by Clearstorm forever on 2018/10/28 15:53
I have a company that requires me to answer calls while engaging in very physical and strenuous work and having a way to answer my phone with ease while moving around so aggressively is very important. So losing my wireless device from my ears or not having great connection and sound clarity is something that I cannot afford. That’s why I love my Bose wireless sports! They move with me and stay locked in place, their sound quality is amazing and I can answer all my calls with a push of a button without taking both hands off my work. I love them but the only downside is... when calls come through, it only comes through one ear bud instead of both so calls are a little hard to hear. Music however, that’s always loud and clear.
A seamless sound sensation!
by wibbage on 2019/09/18 12:38
The Bose SoundSports earbuds are my favorite go to whether traveling by plane, riding my bike or lounging around at home. They are a great companion while on my long walks or at the gym when I want to create my own vibe. SoundSports have phenomenal sound quality from the lowest base to highest treble. One button on/off. I prefer their wireless portability. Most of the time when talking on my cell I wear my earbuds because I get the feeling of being up close and personal and I can hear all the nuances plus these include a built in microphone so Im not tethered to my cell. I can do other things like talk while I’m cooking in the kitchen and still feel totally involved in the conversation and much better than using ones speakerphone. First it has longer range for walking around your home or from anywhere. Secondly, they fit snugly in their round canvas type pouch which has an oversized strong metal clip to attach to one’s belt or bag. The SoundSports fit well in my ears without fatigue or the pressure felt by wearing headphones although I realize some wearers prefer headphones. It’s all good. Finally, I like the Bose connection app so I can seamlessly listen whether on my iPad, iPhone or using my tv remote app.
Good but missing a few features
by Aguyontheinternet on 2019/10/28 03:47
I’d really like to be able to edit and/or manage saved connections when the headset isn’t connected. For instance, our Fire Tv always wants to connect automatically when the QC35’s are turned on but that interrupts playback from those watching it when all I want to do is connect to my phone with the headset. Disabling the connection prior to connecting would resolve that. Another thing I want is more music EQ functionality. It doesn’t seem as if the QC35’s or the app support any sort of EQ function, something that Sennheiser sort of rules at. Would definitely like to see this and further functionality implemented already, we are on v.9.x at this point and all the app really does is allow one to see meager device stats and play Apple Music through it for whatever reason.
Love these in ear Bluetooth headphones
by blu_pll on 2019/01/02 23:31
The headphones has a lot more definition than the AirPods I have. There’s bass and these are a lot louder than I expected. I just received it today, so I have a lot more fiddling to do. But with music, it’s fantastic! The app is very useful too. I’m still downloading the firmware update so hopefully everything works out. I wish the app have a separate equalizer function to have more than options in different sounds but it’s very clear already, just as it came by default. I’m enjoying it so far. I think I’ll be listening to a lot music with this Bose Bluetooth sound sports free. I’ll definitely recommend it to anyone interested in buying a wireless in ear headphones. I love it so far!
Landscape orientation support for iPad
by TofuNatto on 2019/12/08 18:32
What would make this app even better is landscape orientation for the iPad version. While using the iPad in landscape mode and switching over to the Bose app to swap my audio from iPhone to iPad, the Bose app opens up sideways due to not supporting landscape. I can manage with it sideways I suppose, but when I go back to my other apps, now they are switched to portrait mode, and thus show up sideways. And I have to rotate the iPad from landscape orientation to portrait, then back to landscape. Maybe it’s just me. Oh, and even with background refresh on, when coming back to this app from other apps, it always seems to have to refresh. It doesn’t just stay open. iPhone 11/iPad Pro 10.5. Otherwise, this is a great app! Im not sure if this hard to do, but please consider this as a feature!
Lacks needed features
by koop1975 on 2018/12/18 05:05
Love the headphones but we need more control. First, we need a way to set nose cancelling to "low" as a the default setting. The high setting gives me headaches, yet I have to open the app every time I turn the headphones on and change it back to low. At times, the app can't find the headphones even though I'm on a call while using them, so I can't change it back and end up paying for it via a headache. The other thing is that it constant connects and disconnects to my other devices that are right next to me. I'm on a phone call not moving, and I keep hearing the ear piercing noise telling me that the headphones are connecting or losing connection to my iPad or MBP. The noise hurts my ears, but just like above, they is no way to turn it off! My QC 35's were going to get upgraded to series II since they have Alexa, but not unless these pain causing issues are addressed. I just want to use them to isolate myself when needed, not give myself headaches and tinitus!
Bluetooth not always easy to pair
by Kevin at ISU on 2019/09/01 06:56
The app works great most of the time! 20% of the time, BT pairing can become troublesome (momentary pairing then losing connection), but that issue is normally resolved by rebooting BT functions on the phone or rarely, killing and restarting the app as well. I have never had the app lose connection once initial pairing had been completed for the listening session. I own two speakers and make use of the stereo function, which gives the speakers a further depth and punch that belie their small construction. While Bose-skinned music controls are featured within the app, I do not use them as they are not required to maintain multi-speaker pairing when listening to music or watching video. App is easy to use, but BT problems are a bit frustrating and prevent a perfect rating.
Love the quality. Wish the came with an optional tether. That would be boss.
by gunpowderhooligan on 2019/07/28 07:31
I bought a different pair of headphones recently to get the fully wireless effect. Didn’t like ‘em. These are phenomenal. A little too much bass for my personal taste, but that’s fine. I’m sensitive to it. Can adjust the equalizer to fix it. Not too much treble, which turns me off more than anything. There’s also a small delay in iPhone text noises. Also overlook-able. But I do wish they had an optional attachment to keep them super over secure. Because at 199 dollars. That’s a hard loss. I’d buy them again, Bose, so, just make it happen. You won’t lose a customer. Also: definitely need dual headphone calling. There’s no reason not to have it, except I think you want us to buy more when you make that a feature.
Good product but poor volume
by AidanMac1 on 2018/11/05 01:46
Great sound quality. Comfortable fit even when sweating or jogging. They never fell out despite my best efforts during squats, jogging, sit ups, etc. Disappointing volume limitations with no ability to override in the app. I’m sure some of the reason is to prevent hearing damage and another component is to meet stated play times and extend battery life. I’d swap 3 hours of regular playback time for one solid intense hour of higher volume playback time. From everything I’ve read on the net about these headphones, my perception about the volume being the one major downside is identical to many others who have purchased this product. Perhaps an update could fix this. Hopefully someone from Bose is reading these reviews and paying attention.🙏 Cheers.
App probably needs update for the new IOS system
by Dr. Eddrick on 2019/10/24 00:31
I have the Quietcomfort 35 headphones and they are amazing. Love the noise canceling feature. Recently, Apple had this IOS update, and my Bose connect app doesn’t seem to be acting right. In my past experience with Apple products, patience is a virtue. The Bose app probably needs updating to work with the new operating system. Just thought I’d give you guys some positive feedback. Thanks Bose, love your products🙂. Update: Discovered I needed to go to Settings, scroll down to the Bose app, click on the > on the right and turn on Bluetooth there. Must be something new with the newest update. All is well now, hope this helps someone else with the same issue.
Best Complement for Your Bose Headphones.
by MusicFogHandler on 2018/05/03 11:47
This managing app for your BOSE headphones does what it needs to. Simple handling for the every day tasks. It connects with ease and allows you to switch between devices the same way. I do have to say that you eventually get used to going into the app to do changes if at some point you like having a certain level of noise cancellation. It would really benefit from small settings storage so that I don’t have to open the app every time to for example reduce noise canceling level as most of the time I’m at a medium level. Unfortunately every time you turn on your headphones that setting gets reset. Other than that, the app is so easy to navigate through that some times you wonder if there anything else you can do with it.
Pretty good so far.
by Sith Lives Matter on 2018/01/30 16:30
Mostly I’d give 5* but I’ve had these head phones less than a week and I’ve already noticed a couple issues. First one was at the Monster Truck show when those engines reved and popped the head phones couldn’t quite keep up with the noise canceling speed wise so the sound was also popping. Not that I’m around that type of noise a lot, but it doesn’t give me much hope for how they will handle at the shooting range. I guess time will tell. Second issue was on a phone conversation on a long drive. Out of the blue that same intermittent audio popping sound started for no reason and the person I was talking to said they could hardly hear me so I had to switch back to my sound link headphones. Aside from that it’s worked pretty well.
Good high 5 Joe_AES_co.
by Joe_AES_co. on 2018/10/25 20:51
Not really a review or I maybe mistaken since this can only due two devices it shouldn’t matter the master or slave device and also normally a person has two device at any given time is possible can you make it possible to have end user choose who will be the master I my self work at most time at least two places home and job site and sometimes if god given more than two job sites I would like my phone to be the master so when i leave it out of Bluetooth range will lock the device being used and will only open when I and the phone are in one place and prompt with my finger on my iPhones. Over all this app is good and a high five.
Convenient, easy to use app.
by LD or TB on 2018/05/20 02:28
Nice app to augment the features & benefits of my Bose sound tools aside from just connecting via bluetooth. Didn’t realize I could answer phone calls while listening to music on my Bose Revolve until I synced it via the app. Can also add some of my local radio stations as favorites in the app. Nice add-on features. Not an expert audiophile but love great sound & music. Really enjoy my Bose Revolve SoundLink as a portable single point sound system that provides much richer sound than you might expect. That was an awesome gift from my wife & kids. Also, just recently purchased the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones which i really enjoy for pure solitude music listening.
TERRIBLE update for the app
by FN annoyed on 2018/03/18 02:54
I think a lot people here forget that these App Store reviews are meant for the app, not the headphones. I love my headphones but the Bose Connect app is terrible. I honestly NEVER write reviews but I am so incredibly annoyed by this app that I thought maybe if I write a review they’ll do something (wishful thinking). The last update for this app made it so so so much worse. My headphones are now incredibly glitchy. I use my headphones mainly to study, which is like 90% of the time so this is getting on my nerves. The headphones sometimes appear to be connected to a device because I see the logo on the screen but it won’t play the audio. They spontaneously disconnect from my devices and connecting them back is a pain. The mic on the headphones randomly turns on and there is nothing I can do to turn it off except wait until it does so by itself. The updates are terrible. Period. They get worse every time.
Audio stutters
by drzero3 on 2018/03/30 14:01
I noticed that both my Quietcomfort and Soundsport Free have issues with audio. If I slightly turn away from the source then audio cuts out. It’s even worse with the Soundsport Free. I’m maybe about a couple of feet away and audio disconnects. This is in front of both my iPhone and computer. I’m a bit confused why an update could hurt my audio. The previous update was fine and maybe had some work but I really couldn't complain, it worked well! Please fix this ASAP! I don’t want audio stutter and also fix the update process! It’s slow and wastes battery cycles! How about allow the app to download software (this should not take half and hour) as soon as one is available, then allow me to install at my leisure. The install process takes seconds. See what’s wrong here? Give me quick, stable, and reliable headphones that Bose is known for!
Easy and convenient… Excellent!
by Russ’ toys on 2018/03/31 20:36
I am not only impressed with the app… But the speakers I bought two. I bought two Bose micro speakers that can now be in party mode or in left right stereo! They make it so easy it’s almost ridiculous :-) I have 2 Altec Lansing speakers that cost twice as much that were supposed to do the same, and they are garbage… They sound OK, but they’re at people have gotten a one star for years! You can’t even separate the left and right stereo anymore… Thank you Bose!!! The speaker quality is obviously those! Great job! Thank you again… I will never buy another all tech Lansing speaker again… Even when you called your company, they are rude and don’t help you!
Bose for the win on audio quality
by SonikDoom on 2019/01/18 04:46
I’m an audio engineer, and yes, I know Bose tends to catch some flak from our community, but I’ve yet to find a negative thing about any of their gear aside from price, lol... but totally worth the money. Use my SoundSport phones and AcoustiMass system to reference my final mixes. And they do the job BEAUTIFULLY. When I’m actually mixing my projects I use a Yamaha HS8 setup. Crappy speakers to mix through. Then play through my Bose gear to hear the end product. Night and day results. The audio is so well balanced and so rich no matter what I have playing through them. Hoping to snag a set of the SoundSport pods soon. Keep up the good work, Bose. You help keep audio sounding amazing.
Connect and Go
by Pin-Din7 on 2018/12/01 16:03
I have to admit the app works just fine. You know how you usually have a problem with apps and everybody's complaining even main users (I'm looking at you iTunes). That's not the case with Bose Connect does require a large amount space however that I'm not happy about because what if someone doesn't have a large amount of space on their phone from the beginning(5gb total for me) which is why I give it the 4 star. I received my soundlink Micro 2 days ago in the mail and even though setting up the firmware took awhile but at least it completed which is all that I care for there was no failed to install firmware notification. So no repeats. You can connect and move right along!
Nice headphones but..
by desaraev on 2017/12/31 03:10
Having a lot of trouble connecting to Google assistant. Also wish it had the keyword feature for ambient noise that some other headphones have so I can tell if people are talking to me or a horn is honked etc. I want to safely wear them in public. I have a q35 II. Also love the idea of hearphones, for as expensive as these are, would be cool to have headphones that offer everything. The app doesn't show how to shut off headphones. Would also like in app feedback and support. UX is fairly simple but could do more. Maybe overly simplified. Wish the Google assistant button could also manage noise cancelling at the same or have another button. Would also like to set my default music station and app if I just hit play.
Testing out the nose Qc35
by philcanchill on 2018/06/09 11:16
My wife just bought these for my birthday. After reading all the reviews about how they cancel out the noise around you I find mine are not working according to the reviews I have read. I’m sitting at the airport doing a trial with these and I’m beginning to wonder just how well they will do on the plane. If the results on the plane are no different than they are with me sitting here at the gate I will return them for another pair, these could be lemon. I have read too many reviews from other people having the same headphones to believe that they wouldn’t be better than what I’m experiencing. I have the noise reduction set on high as well.
Unhooked
by Daddy's girl 2011 on 2019/02/18 18:59
I really do like the sound quality of these earbuds. The only real problem I’ve found is that the hook used to hold the earbuds to my clothing is not dependable and since I spent over $100 on these, I’d really rather not lose them because of a detachable hook. I have gone through 4 hooks so far and I’ve had these earbuds less than a year. Thank goodness I was able to contact Bose and get extra hooks at no additional charge, (because they’re still under warranty). The hook allows the earbuds to come unattached to your clothes because it can be unattached. I’ve had my buds fall off my neck while walking/jogging and have even tripped over them once! Thank goodness I did or I might not have even realized they had fallen off. Definitely a designer flaw that should be revisited.
Auto-Shut Off Settings!
by Xalea on 2019/01/12 01:04
I was so annoyed because the headphones kept dying. I’d always forget to flip the switch. It seemed archaic that they didn’t come with an auto shut-off function. I’d been through the Settings in app and didn’t see it until just now. I almost wonder if it wasn’t there before.. similarly I kept trying to change the Assistant to Alexa. I eventually gave up because it would never appear as an option no matter what I did. Again just now, there it was. I strongly believe Bose must’ve updated this app recently and fixed some kind of bugs etc. At any rate, at least it’s working properly now!
It's decent, but still needs work.
by SnowflakeDancer360 on 2017/11/23 20:15
Personally, I LOVE Bose products itself. This app is well displayed and everything! However, I do not understand the purpose, considering you can do most of the features that are in the app, outside the app. Playing music can be done outside the app, as well as renaming the device, connecting to the device, etc. Connecting is hard to do inside the app, especially considering most of the steps need to be done outside the app. Though, there are some cool things that you can't do outside the app, such as party mode, which I actually really love considering you can have speakers everywhere in your house, and you can just use one device to play music on all of them. Overall, this app does have some downsides, but it's still pretty good.
Please add auto-noise cancellation off
by Subuv on 2017/12/15 21:23
It is a real pain to switch off noise cancellation after listening. Most times I forget and noise cancellation continues even after I have put down the headphones. Of course, the battery then runs out. It would be good if i noise cancellation turns off automatically after X minutes the music has stopped. I realize some folks want noise cancellation to continue even when not listening to music. That is fine. Just provide the option in your App Bose Connect - Turn noise cancellation off after X minutes or never. The user can choose. The default can be never which is current behavior.
Ron’s Delta Bose 30s
by Ron's Delta on 2019/05/11 16:15
I have had two pairs, my first pair I had to take back to store because the charging plug on the head set seem to be some sort of problem. Resulting in the Bose 30 not able to charge. I assure you on my end there was no abuse as far force or bounced off the floor kinda of thing. I was surprise to learn that was the problem myself. My second pair has been with me 3 months and had no problems. As for sound Bose 30 they are truly the best. I worked my way up to Bose 30s, trying out 3 other brands prior to these Bose 30s. I am truly happy about with my purchase. A total satisfaction for these Bose 30s is my option is the Best. Thank You Bose.
A feature needs fixed
by Devon123Bone on 2018/02/14 17:34
I see a lot of reviews are reviewing the Headphones, not the software within the headphones which can be updated and controlled by this app. Everything is wonderful except for the fact that the app rearranges connection priorities between devices. I always have it set to connect to my phone first, but sometimes it tries to connect to my computer first and when it can’t find it an endless attempt of trying to connect to the computer ensues. Then I have to manually go to the app, set the headphones to ready to pair, then connect to my phone. When I set the connection list, I want it to stay there so that it only connects to my computer when the computer is around. Fix this and everything will be flawless.
Exceptional sound And Great Fit
by Nabil . A on 2017/12/29 08:27
Doesn’t fall out of my ears and has exceptional sound. Noise Cancelation is excellent on this product. Love the wire free Bluetooth connection. Could have made the charging case a little smaller. The range on the Bluetooth connection isn’t too great you get about 10-12 feet. Pairing isn’t an issue as long you download the Bose connect app and pick up the right earphone first. I really like the find my buds feature and battery life is superb. Overall it’s a great product especially for folks who like to exercise and or like to enjoy the favorite music enhanced with exceptional sound and noise cancellation. Improvement areas include Bluetooth range, size of case, and bass treble custom options on the app.
Does any Bose engineer actually use this?
by ScottPNW on 2017/12/24 03:15
First I was required to update before using. That seems innocent enough, unless you are on an airplane when you try to use your headphones and get that message. It is really difficult or impossible to download an update on an airplane. It actually takes about 20-30 minutes even with good bandwidth because the Bluetooth update installation is so slow. And gee, I wonder if people buy them for airplanes? Too bad! Not for this flight! Now I’m being told to “allow new connections” in Control Panel or Settings. There is no Control Panel in an iPhone and there is no “allow new connections” in an iPhone’s Settings, Bluetooth as they attempt to illustrate in the app. So here I am again, unable to move forward or use the app. I think I have a success rate of about 2/5 flights now.
Good overall
by Emily015Z on 2017/12/19 00:59
Good overall. I have two Bose Soundlink Revolve+s and the app is able to remotely turn on the one closest to me and control the volume. I wish the app could turn on both of the speakers remotely and perhaps even shut them off remotely as well, but mostly just to turn both of them on remotely. Also I wish that the connection with Alexa was a lot smoother. Sometimes I will have to clear the Bluetooth list and start over in order to get Alexa to connect to the speakers. Also it would be nice if Alexa could connect to both of the speakers at the same time but that’s more of an Alexa issue rather than Bose. I like that the speakers get software updates through the app. Great products and good app.
