Needs an Apple Watch App

This would be so much more useful with an Apple Watch App. It should have have an equalizer built in.
Keeps dropping speaker in party modus
by soulsirup on 2020/09/22 12:21
Dear Bose, I really wanted to like this app, especially for the option to have two Bluetooth speakers connected and use them for example in two rooms or as stereo speakers. Unfortunately the app is glitchy, first it takes some attempts to get two speakers connected and once they are, it takes just to change the volume to have them drop again. So i am down to not using this app and in single speaker modus. For a company that produces audio devices of such a high quality i would really expect the same quality app. I‘ve been using Bose poducts for many years and very satisfied. Please fix this app! Thank you
Love these!!!! Best gift ever!!!!

This a really pretty app, useless too!
by dowd.88 on 2020/09/21 19:48
I have two S1 pros and this app is nearly useless to access and connect them. The updates through the app are less than a joke even, the stereo mode is arduous and doesn’t work half the time. I can’t even get the app to connect to either $600 speaker, even though I can play music through them. Just a joke Bose. Get your stuff together.

They rock!
by MichaelWidener on 2020/09/19 18:54
These headphones are better than Apple’s AirPods. They feature an in-ear locking feature. It’s strange at first. Because to put them in you place the bus in your ear, almost on the right angle then, here’s the strange part, you twist away from yourself. Yes. As if you’re gonna take them out. And for some engineering reason only Bose knows, they just sink into your ear. And lock! My girlfriend, who’s mother was a piano teacher and taught her since she was three said “Excuse me I was just a concert!” when I gave them to her and let her hear them for the first time. Not stop and think about that. She plays piano. So she has a great ear. She plays Mozart and Beethoven. So yeah she knows crappy sound from great sound. I love Apple but those AirPods just fall out. I have then still but I’m not wearing them while I have these. These lock in. Invest in better sound. It’s worth it.

Functional & Intuitive
by OluBO on 2020/09/19 12:52
Very well laid out and designed with the user in mind. I prioritize effectiveness and ease of use of my audio products alongside audio quality. Controlling your speaker(s) is simple. The key features I appreciate, - turning on speaker via the phone - connecting multiple Bose speakers together for party mode - find my buds feature that allows you to locate your earphones Lastly, the very clean, simple and intuitive layout makes it user friendly. I actually purchased a Bose speaker versus another premium speaker after trying out both apps.
It’s great

“Internet radio stations disappeared in app”
by Songtide on 2020/09/15 21:30
I love the sound of Bose products! Purchased the mini Soundlink a few weeks ago. Was enjoying the internet radio stations which suddenly disappeared from the connect app. Followed troubleshooting tips in the Bose community but still not working.

by Shail0210 on 2020/09/15 04:54
One of the worst connectivity app ever. This one has single job to find Bose devices and it fails at that every now and then once you have more than 2 devices and you start turning them on and off from the app as needed. Really how hard is it to simply maintain a list of devices and connect based on the ise action/selection. Really a dumb code, I must say.
Great it gives you more options on how you control your tunes. 👍🏽🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Buy it, treat yo self
by AlehFlo on 2020/09/14 22:51
I’ve had this speaker for about seven months now and I’m so glad I bought it. It is light and compact so I carry it around the house whenever I want to listen to music. I use it in the shower so now my neighbors get a free concert everyday from yours truly, and even though it is waterproof, I try not to get it directly under the water. Still, there have been instances where I’ve gotten water on it and, as expected, no damage. The strap on the back is like a military knot: so easy to undo when you want to, but super secure once it’s on (not actually a knot lol just a strap with a clip at the end). The volume goes high enough that my partner has teasingly compared me to a teenager blasting music. I am no audio connoisseur but the sound is great on this little speaker. Good bass too. I’ve used the Mini Bose speaker before — the rectangular one that kind of looks like a brick — and I honestly think this one sounds better. Doesn’t take long to charge, and I like that it tells me how much battery is left as soon as it comes on and also through the tiny lights at the top. Love that I can connect it from the app on my phone without having to go up to the speaker to turn it on. Two clicks on the middle button to skip, three clicks to go back. I’m not sure what else someone considering it would want to know but as a regular degular girl who just likes to blast music sometimes and appreciates a good bass, I’ll say this is one of the best purchases I’ve made this year so far.
Awesome

Great app!
by rzsatx on 2020/09/14 16:00
The app works really well for both the Bluetooth and the ear buds. What I do recommend is a way to ask a question regarding the Bluetooth and/or maybe the ear buds. I seem to have trouble with the Bluetooth and charging it. Most of the time, all is good. Twice so far the Bluetooth does not charge while plugged into a wall outlet. The Bluetooth is up to date according to the app so I am at a stand still. How to I charge a Bluetooth that doesn’t reflect its charging? I’ve had it plugged it since 7:30 am and it’s now 11 am and Bluetooth tells me it’s losing power. I can’t charge it so not sure what I can or can’t do.
Product is buggy

Latest version (13.0) is a step back in terms of bugs
by E-mano on 2020/09/14 13:48
Version 13 was stated as a fix to bugs but in my use has been MUCH more buggy in terms of connections. I have it paired to iPhone and laptop. And the number of times the connection is now not made when headphones turned on is unacceptable! It will even sometimes prompt me to “pair” the headphones to iPhone when it’s already paired. For use with laptop, almost every time I have to turn off connection and turn back on to actually have sound come through the headphones. The previous versions weren’t perfect but were SIGNIFICANTLY better that maintaining connections and switching between paired sources. PLEASE fix soon

Excellent sound as usual from Bose. Probably needs to be a bit lighter for future versions, as it starts to feel a bit heavy as a collar after wearing for a while for work meetings.
App and Device Do Not Communicate
by pb15212 on 2020/09/11 17:35
The Bose Connect “sees” my device but does not know that it’s already connected to Bluetooth. I’ve “forgotten” the device, rebooted, reloaded and in general, have tried every remedy but the app still asks me to pair the speaker to my device. It just can’t figure out that it’s already paired. Maddening circle jerk with Bose tech for an hour. I am told there are control features in the app so I desperately want it to work, it just doesn’t.

by chris9799 on 2020/09/10 10:29
Awesome help with set up. Can easily remove old phones and other devices so the headphones don’t still try to connect. Best of all, it can track your earbuds Incase lost! Only downside is if you only use one headphone (the right) and not the left as often it’ll register the lefts location at the last place you actually used the earbud. But that’s for the product review the app is awesome!

Unnecessary App
by Kholdjin on 2020/09/09 14:34
Unnecessary app. Your device can install and configure the BT earpieces on it’s own. But the app apparently works, so +3 stars for that, -2 stars for being as useful as a screen door on a submarine.
Great app but no landscape support
by Tiarala on 2020/09/09 14:26
The app is a really convenient way to control my headphones but the continued lack of support for landscape orientation on iPad Pro seems like laziness. I’d happily give back the missing 2 stars if orientation were respected on iPad/iPad Pro.
Weak signal
by Thundakat26 on 2020/09/09 09:38

“Party Mode”
by ddernotlad on 2020/09/07 23:55
Entering “Party Mode” in the app, and connecting two compatible speakers together, is the most unreliable function I have ever encountered in any IOS app. As far as the rest of the app you might ask? I ask; what else is the app good for? When the speaker is powered on it announces its battery level to everyone therefore eliminating the need to open the app to check battery level. Oh and each speaker has a colored battery indicator on it. ZERO STARS!
LOVE this speaker and App.

Speakers are amazing, App/Software is trash
by dubsea4 on 2020/09/07 19:33
I purchased 2 Bose revolve pluses a year or so ago. The speakers sound amazing, but the app is terrible. It never connects the first time and when I try to pair/party mode them it always fails. This issue has been there since I first got the speakers, actually it may have got worse. Bose if you guys are going to charge $300 for a Bluetooth speaker then make the app just as good. One can’t work without the other.

Better to simply connect via Bluetooth and ignore this app. The only thing this app provides is to make it more difficult to connect Bose should be ashamed producing software like this.
Real Buggy App

by Parache787 on 2020/09/04 06:35
In my case I’m a music producer and I hace been a fan of that unique and clear sound that Bose can bring to a mix. I don’t know if they are pre equalized so you can hear the music or the sound in certain way. But it's noise cancelation technology is very impressive too. I‘m making some good quality mixes in my songs and I can see some difference between this and other headphones. Let’s say this are not the best headphone on the market but they have quality.
Great interface, very user friendly!

by GG-DC on 2020/09/03 14:25
I love my Sound Control Bose headphone. I’ve had them for a couple years now and I use some still frequently and they still look and feel brand new. The durability is great they’ve traveled with me around the world multiple times. What I don’t love about this is that when the sound control is on high the pressure is unbearable on my eardrums. It’s very uncomfortable and almost painful. I have to go in and manually turn it down to low every time I use them so that I can tolerate the pressure.I wish there was a setting that would just allow it to stay in the low setting every time I turn them on so I don’t have to take my time to do it manually. Otherwise it’s a great product!
Hot Garbage
by Tyrueogpj on 2020/09/03 11:57

Designed for the Netscape Generation
by musiverse on 2020/09/02 04:30
Given the price point and the average 4.8 rating (among 174k), it’s highly likely that the average age of the Bose app user is 55 and up. — The app doesn’t allow landscape view. You load the app and it will force a portrait view. (At least on iPads.) Yet, no one seems to mind. — UX can be streamlined so that the app opens and goes directly to essential functions like noise-canceling levels. Instead, it opens to a glamour shot of your headphones.
Ok controls, ridiculously slow UI
by Herr Wiersdorf on 2020/09/01 21:56
This app does a decent job of exposing controls unavailable on the headphones themselves. However, it is so slow when connecting. I have to wait three seconds for the splash screen to play, and then another two to five seconds just to get to the controls. I wish they could speed this up. It should be instant. Also: why can’t I set a default sound canceling level? I don’t need max canceling for most of the time. I wish I could set a default. Finally: get rid of the splash screen. It’s annoying and doesn’t seem necessary. UPDATE: maybe it’s just the headphones, but my headphones are not working and this app is no help.

Middling at best
by kizziesings on 2020/08/29 00:30
I was never fully impressed with this app but functionally all I really needed was a way to control connectivity with the app and it did that...mosy. I don’t know if the software has worsened over time or if I’m just discovering these flaws as of late, but it’s all problematic and just way too many issues to give more than 1 star. I also can’t tell what’s a speaker issue vs an app issue, it all kind of blends into each other, so I’m just going to list all the problems I’m having. — THE BAD — Doesn’t Work With Do Not Disturb!! 😡: This alone gives this whole setup a 1 star for me. Everything else could be going well, but this condemns it. I have Do Not Disturb scheduled to stay on until my daughter wakes. My Phone was connected to the speaker and playing her sleep playlist. Set to Do Not Disturb. And yet, because my phone was connected to this speaker, a call came through and woke my sleeping baby. This had me ready to dump this thing in the trash. Seriously!! Why on earth would this thing override my Do Not Disturb!?? I am NEVER using this thing for my child again. I’ll use it for myself, sure, but I have a newborn. There are few scenarios where I’ll be using this just for me. Phone Calls &amp; Audio Switching: - Calls come in super soft with the speaker. If I switch to my iPhone audio, after a few moments the speaker hijacks the sound. So I have to disconnect or power off the speaker. - If my phone is connected to the speaker and I switch my audio to the phone speakers, after a few minutes, the Bose speaker randomly hijacks the sound. So I have to disconnect or power off the speaker. Distinguishing Between Bose Products: Example: If my iPad is connected to the speaker and I power on my Bose headphones to connect to my phone, the sound from my iPad automatically switches to my headphones. Nonsense. Audio Play With Two Devices Connected: Faulty. Just straight up faulty. When two devices are connected and I’m playing sound on one, the audio is choppy on one and won’t play at all on the other. I have to disconnect the unused device to restore the sound on the other. Which makes having two devices connected simultaneously all the more ridiculous. I would definitely prefer the extra device not connect at all. There should be a prompt when connecting asking ME which device to connect to. Automatic Connection To Two Devices: So the device auto-connects to the most recent two devices, which I don’t care for but I understand this feature. But if either of those devices can’t be found, the speaker searches for ANY other device it previously connected to and just arbitrarily picks a device. SO....WHACK! Again, having a sleeping child this makes for a HORRIBLE scenario. Cuz see, this can only be considered to work well if the speaker doesn’t glitch and for whatever reason can’t connect to the most recent device. This happens sometimes. My phone is always the most recent device, it’s right next to the speaker and yet the speaker doesn’t connect. So it gives up and goes searching for the next device it can find. So one night trying to put my child down for the night, I call myself connecting to play her sleep playlist, and instead of connecting to my phone, it latches on to my husband&#39;s phone and blasts at full volume some video he was watching in the other room! 😡 NOT the most recent device, NOT my two computers or iPad, it picks my husband’s phone. Connectivity Issues: Sometimes the speaker just won’t connect. Sometimes the app can’t even detect the speaker. All very random. Not a distance issue. Connection Announcement: — REVISED: I recently discovered you can actually turn this off, so this doesn’t count towards the negative review. Still going to mention for those who may not know that it is something that can be turned off in the Settings of the app. This does not however affect my rating. — *I NEVER liked this feature. When I connect a device, a voice announces out loud, at whatever the volume was set to before, “Connected to [Device Name]”. Super annoying when I’m trying to foster a quiet environment and play soft music, like say for my sleeping newborn. So there is no quiet way of switching devices. I have to listen to “[Device Name] disconnected” and “Connected to [Device Name]” one after the other and lay on that volume down button like a ninja to keep the speaker from blasting it. I can understand the value this feature might have to others, but there needs to AT LEAST be an ability to turn this feature off. Or at least just signal it with some soft beeps like when the speaker powers off. I can confirm in my settings whether or not it successfully connected, I don’t need that voice.* Bose App Connection Only: The app only works if the device is connected to the speaker. This is beyond frustrating. So if I want to use my phone app to control the speaker which is connected to my iPad, I have to connect my phone to the speaker first. This is pretty ridiculous. I have to interrupt playback in say YouTube (that doesn’t play in multi-tasking) on the iPad in order to operate the Bose app. The app should be able to just work despite the device I’m on. UI: I should just be able to tap the device I want to connect to my Bose, instead of having to swipe the little switch on the right. Swipe it away or tap and hold if I want to disconnect. Simple. This whole graphic of the headphones and swiping it down to connect, it’s pretty and all but it’s overkill. If the graphic is a must, just let it be a visual representation of ALL Bose devices detected and have a list of connectable devices below it that I can choose from. To clarify: If there are two Bose products detected, they should both appear on the screen giving me the option to select which one I want to connect to. Simple and clean. — THE GOOD — Great quality sound from such a teeny speaker. Same with headphones though their pretty ugly and bulky, but that’s feedback for another space.
No complaints

Too buggy and frustrating
by promyk on 2020/08/26 01:14
I “can’t” connect the speaker to get inside the app even though I’m connected and paired. Keeps asking me to go to settings. Or to press the Bluetooth if I forget the device. I wanted to use this app to see if it would help with yet another problem with these speakers. They are too temperamental. Sometimes they will play music, other times (most often) they won’t. Even though they are paired and connected in setting and the speaker does say I’m connected. Too frustrating!

I had seen reviews that mentioned that it was hard to link your phone and Bluetooth speaker. At 67, I am not electronically savvy, but I found it extremely easy to link and start using.

Bose Connect
by Lilita823 on 2020/08/22 22:57
Me gusta 100% mi Bose Connect. Se me había perdido el anterior a este y no podía adaptarme a otro audífono. Me hizo mucha falta por lo cual compré otro. Es muy útil porque puedo moverme en mis tareas en mi casa con facilidad y el sonido es perfecto. Ahora vuelvo a ser feliz.

Great when they actually work. Problem is they routinely do not connect unless I plug them in. Defeats purpose of wireless speakers. 😡

Area of Opportunity
by Secret Shopper on a Mission on 2020/08/20 13:29
Why does this app take 92 button clicks just to play 2 speakers in stereo mode? 1 out of 25 times it functions correctly. The other 24 times I have reconnect over and over. I don’t understand how a company with such great speakers can have such a bad app. What happened to the good old days when you pressed the power button and music played? So very, very, very frustrating. I will gladly revise my review if one of the app developers can spend some time fixing all the bugs. Original Review: I like the app. Would like it better if I could link more than 2 SoundLink Revolve speakers. I would fill my house with these speakers if the app allowed more than 2. I’ve never seen a company that actively dissuades consumers from buying their product like Bose. I’m trying to give them money, but I guess they don’t need it, lol. I’ve called tech support multiple times and they could honestly care less about this. Oh well.
Does Not Work
by Fonzel on 2020/08/20 01:01
Don’t know what to tell you other than it doesn’t work. Installed on iPhone 11 Pro, 256 Gb (plenty of space). Tried to get it to pair via Bluetooth with my Bose QuietComfort II headphones and app refused to “see” them. Repeatedly. Removed from memory, restarted app - no diff. After multiple attempts, gave up, went directly to iOS Bluetooth settings, there the headphones were, connected in two seconds. Why have a useless app that doesn’t work on your phone?

Greatness
by Noegood on 2019/09/11 16:58
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.
Connection issues
by Richelle21 on 2019/12/29 01:58
I do love my Bose QC35 II headphones. They’ve been a lifesaver on airplanes. The problem though, is connecting to devices can be finicky. Sometimes it can find the device and other times it cannot. I have to turn off the head phone and turn them back on. Sometimes I have to do this multiple times before it finds the device. It’s very frustrating. Then, the volume is turned all the way down, every time, so I have to up the volume. Otherwise the TV volume is on 100. I have cheap Bluetooth devices that connect right away with no issues. You would think Bose would be better for as long as they have been around, and as much as you spend. I have tried other brand Bluetooth headphones on the fire TV and iPad. They always connect. They don’t drop out or cut in and out. However they don’t have the noise Canceling or quality that the Bose do. Please fix the Poor Bluetooth performance. My theory is it has to do with the feature that allows you to connect to two devices at once. The other headphones don’t have that option. The app may have a hard time determining which device it should be sending audio from. Even if my iPhone is not doing anything, it may be ignoring the Tv, thinking that it should be sending audio from the phone, for some strange reason. Also, if I turn Bluetooth off on my phone, I have issues with sound on the Tv.
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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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 &amp; 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!
Maybe I’m missing something?
by Pennyish on 2020/06/26 04:05
I hate the notifications I get while I’m on one device, that another device is not connected (or trying to connect). I mean, if I am listening on a device, if I can hear the notification, why should it matter if another device is trying to or not at all connecting. And if it wasn’t connecting to the device I was trying to listen to, I would know this without the dumb voice telling me so. It is incredibly annoying to hear this voice telling me it’s trying to connect to my iPad every 10 seconds while I’m trying to listen to something on my iPhone! I know that the app is supposed to show you the devices it’s connected to, and you can unconnect this way, but in my experience, this part of the part app disappears and is no where to be found most of the time. That is one problem which I think is probably an update issue, but the real issue IMO is the device notification: does anyone really need to know what devices are connected at all times when you’re listening to the device you want to listen to? Please allow the app to disable notifications about every device you own that at one point or other have been connected to the headphones.
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.
Easy to use and effective, but needs one thing
by App_User995 on 2020/06/26 19:30
The app is very easy to use the Bose Connect app with the QC35 ii headphones—it makes setting up the headphones like setting up an iPhone for the first time, but faster. It is not gimmicky; I am mostly pleasantly surprised. The one thing the app needs is an option to disable the dynamic range compression and other sound processing algorithms that come with the QC35 ii headset (similar to how it allows the user to disable voice prompts). I see why dynamic range compression can be a nice feature, but it dramatically reduces the listener’s ability to distinguish between the extreme differences in dynamic that are the emotional highlights of a superb classical music recording (and never mind any subtle differences, because those are simply inaudible with the sound processing). Because the noise cancelling is so incredibly good on these headphones, having an option to let the headphones produce exactly what the recording engineers intended for us to hear, quiets and louds and all, would be phenomenal. The QC25 headphones were much better at this.
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!
What’s the point?
by Andyinor on 2020/05/20 23:30
What is the point of having an extra app to connect to Bluetooth? What I find is that it blares in my ear “connecting to my iPad connecting to my iPad connecting to my iPad” when it’s already connected to my phone. If multiple devices are registered and one isn’t within range, good luck because it will continue to blabber on about not being able to connect to the other device. If you don’t have your credentials for the Bose app and you’re trying to stop the stupid thing from connecting to a device that isn’t even in the house, good luck. When I’m listening to music already and then interrupts to say it’s connected to another device, what good is that? I had removed it but because the headphones can’t connect multiple devices there are situations where I have to reload it, I totally don’t see what this app gives me beyond that. A good “Bluetooth connection app“ (if there is such a thing) should be seen, not heard. I am writing this review in a fit of frustration from having just missed an entire song listening to nothing but “connecting to my iPad“ which is 200 miles away.
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!
Undeniably one of the best headphones out there
by BoSE HEADPHOnES: Da bomb.com on 2019/12/29 06:57
AirPods are just a fancy name without wires. I tried having one and almost even three out my Bose headphones which btw would have been a HUGE mistake like many of the reviews the distance away you can be from your phone is unbelievable. The creators obviously know what they’re doing unlike the AirPod creators. I could barely hear any sound and apparently you have to go through a five-step process JUST TO CONNECT your phone. But I had overlooked that fact because the case of the AirPods was going to look so sophisticated but boy am I glad that I didn’t waste money on a case. Literally the only thing you can not do with the state of the art headphones that is always worth the price no matter what price it may be, is get a case for it. Now I am an “aesthetic person” but quality should come before anything when buying a product.
Biking
by Aceoflords on 2020/02/10 12:07
As a teen I would Manhattan with my Panasonic or Sony, not huge boom box but something I can carry comfortably usually that would reach from elbow to my hand. Also quality of sound ranges was important with a enhance base tone. I love salsa and the base key to all other instruments including the conga high and low. Bose product is awesome you just strap in on belt or bike, pole etc and you got everything you played for. I do long distance on bike and I turn back if I didn’t bring my Bose. Another good thing is I brought my dauther one for Christmas and I can pair in the house in stero and it sound great. I usually practice conga, bongo and if need be take my cajon bongo and Bose speaker’s to park and play. I do it for personal joy but I noticed I created a following when playing in public without looking for one. Great product. Only thing I wish it had is outlets specially one for ear plugs. I use it everyday.
They rock!
by MichaelWidener on 2020/09/19 18:54
These headphones are better than Apple’s AirPods. They feature an in-ear locking feature. It’s strange at first. Because to put them in you place the bus in your ear, almost on the right angle then, here’s the strange part, you twist away from yourself. Yes. As if you’re gonna take them out. And for some engineering reason only Bose knows, they just sink into your ear. And lock! My girlfriend, who’s mother was a piano teacher and taught her since she was three said “Excuse me I was just a concert!” when I gave them to her and let her hear them for the first time. Not stop and think about that. She plays piano. So she has a great ear. She plays Mozart and Beethoven. So yeah she knows crappy sound from great sound. I love Apple but those AirPods just fall out. I have then still but I’m not wearing them while I have these. These lock in. Invest in better sound. It’s worth it.
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.
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.
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 &amp; 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!
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.
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.
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.

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.
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??
Much Easier than On-Speaker Controls
by Clawfford on 2020/01/04 16:48
The software is much easier to use than trying to set up my Revolve+ speakers via the controls on top. I don’t change things very often, so remembering what the button icons mean (or what button COMBOS I need to press) often requires a search for instructions. MUCH easier just to use this software. There is one feature I’d like to see implemented if possible... when pairing two speakers in STEREO MODE, the software seems to decide almost at random which one it locates first to be the left channel. As often as not, it detects the wrong speaker first. The easiest fix instead if battling software is usually to physically move the speakers to get the L/R orientation corrected. It would be nice to have a simple toggle button for “Swap Stereo Channels (Left/Right)” so that I don’t have to go through the unplug-move-replug routine.
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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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.
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.

sound sport pulse i love the way they rest in ear canal the best i have owned and i have had everything from air pods to other Bose and my pulse are my favorite and im not one who is gentle on any thing or any one and if i can have a product last 6 months with me it is worth having and ruged because like i said i am not the type who coddles things no matter what they cost i have had my pulse for over a year and the only problem i am now starting to encounter is the power button is getting to where it dont want to turn on or off but the sound is still that beautiful Bose sound i love you Bose thank you for giving me every thing i would expect from the best sounding wireless headphones on the market and with the added bonus of incredible durability
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.
Bose is Boss
by Dizzoness on 2020/04/23 18:28
Bose Soundwear is my boss and I’ve made a career out of using their products exclusively. The price you pay is reasonable and the benefits are great! (Notice my corny wordplay lol). Overall I gave Bose Soundwear a 5 star rating because everything from start to finish was a smooth experience, from the online buying process to finally giving your new device a name as you place that puppy on your shoulders. The sound quality won’t disappoint especially if you love bass. It doesn’t need much volume to really feel immersed in whatever you listen to. Most of all it is quite comfortable and you could easily forget that you are wearing it. I recommend buying this for anyone who are feeling hesitant to pull the trigger. It really follows through with their promises. Go for it!
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!
Seriously Bose?
by keylime.com on 2020/01/27 03:42
I&#39;m a long-time fan of Bose. Currently I have a number of their products scattered around my home, the hardware is hard to equal. This review is specifically in regard to this app and its interface with my iPad Pro and two Bose SoundLink Revolve speakers. First off, the app stays in portrait mode, a iPad is ALWAYS in landscape mode. This should not be. I started with one Revolve speaker just to bump up the volume when putzing around in the kitchen, but I discovered that an additional Revolve could be added, giving the option for ”party” or ”stereo” modes. Excellent! The linking of the two speakers is absolute frustration. The seemingly simple (sideways, remember portrait-mode only) graphics are futile. I have yet to follow the instructions with success on the first attempt, sometimes it takes up to 5-minutes of rebooting the app, restarting the speakers, ”searching” for speakers that are sitting inches away from the iPad and each other. This particular features abysmal. I expect so much more from you Bose.
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 &#34;low&#34; 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&#39;t find the headphones even though I&#39;m on a call while using them, so I can&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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!
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 &gt; 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.
Soundlink micro rarely links to other.?WORTHLESS!!!
by seriouslyareyoudoingthis on 2020/03/30 02:53
This software is unreliable, and the last thing I wanna see after a failure is a WHOOPS screen. I expected far more from Bose, but clearly not a software company. IPad Pro wouldn’t mind a proper app too... what is the problem here? I bought these speakers only for the stereo mode, which almost never works. Your app wastes a lot of clicks too, should be far easier to operate, when/if it works. To go into stereo mode you first have to slide a photo of the speaker down, whereafter there is an animation that makes it seem that it’s doing something. Sometimes it connects to the first speaker, sometimes not. Often it asks you to pair the speaker, but this rarely solves anything, as it was already paired. Getting the second speaker to work is a bit more hit or miss, and stupid tedious... you press the double speaker icon, which brings you to what I can only assume is a marketing screen, which requires another click to actually do anything (this screen should be removed). If it actually connects, it’s still not in stereo mode... it’s in PARTY MODE. Now, just one more click... what looks like a switch, and Voila... WHOOPS (at least 1/3 the time. Nobody else is getting this??. Very disappointing. Redesign, hire somebody competent, rework the speakers. Worthless, ruins good speakers when you cannot reliably connect.
Update: Great App Could use Additional Features
by iDrive55 on 2020/01/22 16:20
When using two Revolves in stereo mode the left channel crackles and cuts in and out. I love the sound of the Revolve. So much so I bought two. I also love the ability to pair the two together through this app. However, there are a couple of features that I would like to see in future update. One, I would really like to see a landscape view on the iPad. Two, it would be nice if the app remembered the last setting. Example: I paired my two Revolves to ‘Party Mode (stereo). Now every time I reconnect, I have to go through Party Mode pairing procedure (again). It would be nice if the app would resume from the last setting.
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&#39;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!
Better than Samsung-Fact. TP-RN
by BHTYW on 2019/12/29 13:28
Bought Samsung best last week. LEFT BUD wouldn’t play at all AFTER the 2nd charge or work. When attempting to Charge fully for the 2nd use, LEFT RED BUD LIGHT came on &amp; ONLY RIGHT BUD LIGHT GREEN came on &amp; fully charged. After charging only RIGHT BUD WOULD only function. Other wise the quality of sound was great for the price. Good thing this happened. Researched on Internet &amp; found others had same problem. Took back to Wal*art &amp; exchanged for these. When I called SAMSUNG’s CUSTOM SERVICE to report, the Rep. was border line rude as if they had heard this frequently. And I didn’t research head &amp; found out after I got home. The software IS NOT USE-ABLE on Apple anything. I wouldn’t have bought them if I had known that. I got to have &amp; depend on the AP software on IS any wireless Bluetooth, I think Samsung intended this for marketing/SALES OF SAMSUNG’s PRODUCTS. “HEY SAMSUNG”, if that was planned for sales of any of your products, it actually hurt your marketing. Just bought a 65” flat screen” SAMSUNG O or Q LED I think it’s called.- 3 weeks ago &amp; it has some restrictions to be used only ON SAMSUNG on their merchant.
Convenient, easy to use app.
by LD or TB on 2018/05/20 02:28
Nice app to augment the features &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; kids. Also, just recently purchased the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones which i really enjoy for pure solitude music listening.

Needs an Apple Watch App
by C. Lucas on 2020/09/23 03:29
This would be so much more useful with an Apple Watch App. It should have have an equalizer built in.
Keeps dropping speaker in party modus
by soulsirup on 2020/09/22 12:21
Dear Bose, I really wanted to like this app, especially for the option to have two Bluetooth speakers connected and use them for example in two rooms or as stereo speakers. Unfortunately the app is glitchy, first it takes some attempts to get two speakers connected and once they are, it takes just to change the volume to have them drop again. So i am down to not using this app and in single speaker modus. For a company that produces audio devices of such a high quality i would really expect the same quality app. I‘ve been using Bose poducts for many years and very satisfied. Please fix this app! Thank you
Love these!!!! Best gift ever!!!!

This a really pretty app, useless too!
by dowd.88 on 2020/09/21 19:48
I have two S1 pros and this app is nearly useless to access and connect them. The updates through the app are less than a joke even, the stereo mode is arduous and doesn’t work half the time. I can’t even get the app to connect to either $600 speaker, even though I can play music through them. Just a joke Bose. Get your stuff together.

Although I enjoi the shape of the older soundlink (rectangular) I do love the Revolve! It’s comfortable and has a great weight. Sound is perfect as usual. No complaints besides it’s too smart for its own good! Thanks Bose!

Easy to use
They rock!
by MichaelWidener on 2020/09/19 18:54
These headphones are better than Apple’s AirPods. They feature an in-ear locking feature. It’s strange at first. Because to put them in you place the bus in your ear, almost on the right angle then, here’s the strange part, you twist away from yourself. Yes. As if you’re gonna take them out. And for some engineering reason only Bose knows, they just sink into your ear. And lock! My girlfriend, who’s mother was a piano teacher and taught her since she was three said “Excuse me I was just a concert!” when I gave them to her and let her hear them for the first time. Not stop and think about that. She plays piano. So she has a great ear. She plays Mozart and Beethoven. So yeah she knows crappy sound from great sound. I love Apple but those AirPods just fall out. I have then still but I’m not wearing them while I have these. These lock in. Invest in better sound. It’s worth it.

App is crap
by Theprinster on 2020/09/19 13:11
Like other Bose apps this one is crap. Despite following directions the app never sees the player. My phone does, the app does not. Uninstalled and reinstalled and no luck.
Functional & Intuitive
by OluBO on 2020/09/19 12:52
Very well laid out and designed with the user in mind. I prioritize effectiveness and ease of use of my audio products alongside audio quality. Controlling your speaker(s) is simple. The key features I appreciate, - turning on speaker via the phone - connecting multiple Bose speakers together for party mode - find my buds feature that allows you to locate your earphones Lastly, the very clean, simple and intuitive layout makes it user friendly. I actually purchased a Bose speaker versus another premium speaker after trying out both apps.
It’s great

“Internet radio stations disappeared in app”
by Songtide on 2020/09/15 21:30
I love the sound of Bose products! Purchased the mini Soundlink a few weeks ago. Was enjoying the internet radio stations which suddenly disappeared from the connect app. Followed troubleshooting tips in the Bose community but still not working.

One of the worst connectivity app ever. This one has single job to find Bose devices and it fails at that every now and then once you have more than 2 devices and you start turning them on and off from the app as needed. Really how hard is it to simply maintain a list of devices and connect based on the ise action/selection. Really a dumb code, I must say.
Great it gives you more options on how you control your tunes. 👍🏽🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Buy it, treat yo self
by AlehFlo on 2020/09/14 22:51
I’ve had this speaker for about seven months now and I’m so glad I bought it. It is light and compact so I carry it around the house whenever I want to listen to music. I use it in the shower so now my neighbors get a free concert everyday from yours truly, and even though it is waterproof, I try not to get it directly under the water. Still, there have been instances where I’ve gotten water on it and, as expected, no damage. The strap on the back is like a military knot: so easy to undo when you want to, but super secure once it’s on (not actually a knot lol just a strap with a clip at the end). The volume goes high enough that my partner has teasingly compared me to a teenager blasting music. I am no audio connoisseur but the sound is great on this little speaker. Good bass too. I’ve used the Mini Bose speaker before — the rectangular one that kind of looks like a brick — and I honestly think this one sounds better. Doesn’t take long to charge, and I like that it tells me how much battery is left as soon as it comes on and also through the tiny lights at the top. Love that I can connect it from the app on my phone without having to go up to the speaker to turn it on. Two clicks on the middle button to skip, three clicks to go back. I’m not sure what else someone considering it would want to know but as a regular degular girl who just likes to blast music sometimes and appreciates a good bass, I’ll say this is one of the best purchases I’ve made this year so far.
Awesome

Great app!
by rzsatx on 2020/09/14 16:00
The app works really well for both the Bluetooth and the ear buds. What I do recommend is a way to ask a question regarding the Bluetooth and/or maybe the ear buds. I seem to have trouble with the Bluetooth and charging it. Most of the time, all is good. Twice so far the Bluetooth does not charge while plugged into a wall outlet. The Bluetooth is up to date according to the app so I am at a stand still. How to I charge a Bluetooth that doesn’t reflect its charging? I’ve had it plugged it since 7:30 am and it’s now 11 am and Bluetooth tells me it’s losing power. I can’t charge it so not sure what I can or can’t do.
Product is buggy
by razorsharpone on 2020/09/14 15:38
Volume on unit drops to zero and starts beeping uncontrollably. Maybe phone issue but product unusable as it is
Latest version (13.0) is a step back in terms of bugs
by E-mano on 2020/09/14 13:48
Version 13 was stated as a fix to bugs but in my use has been MUCH more buggy in terms of connections. I have it paired to iPhone and laptop. And the number of times the connection is now not made when headphones turned on is unacceptable! It will even sometimes prompt me to “pair” the headphones to iPhone when it’s already paired. For use with laptop, almost every time I have to turn off connection and turn back on to actually have sound come through the headphones. The previous versions weren’t perfect but were SIGNIFICANTLY better that maintaining connections and switching between paired sources. PLEASE fix soon

Excellent sound as usual from Bose. Probably needs to be a bit lighter for future versions, as it starts to feel a bit heavy as a collar after wearing for a while for work meetings.
App and Device Do Not Communicate
by pb15212 on 2020/09/11 17:35
The Bose Connect “sees” my device but does not know that it’s already connected to Bluetooth. I’ve “forgotten” the device, rebooted, reloaded and in general, have tried every remedy but the app still asks me to pair the speaker to my device. It just can’t figure out that it’s already paired. Maddening circle jerk with Bose tech for an hour. I am told there are control features in the app so I desperately want it to work, it just doesn’t.

Awesome help with setup
by chris9799 on 2020/09/10 10:29
Awesome help with set up. Can easily remove old phones and other devices so the headphones don’t still try to connect. Best of all, it can track your earbuds Incase lost! Only downside is if you only use one headphone (the right) and not the left as often it’ll register the lefts location at the last place you actually used the earbud. But that’s for the product review the app is awesome!

Unnecessary App
by Kholdjin on 2020/09/09 14:34
Unnecessary app. Your device can install and configure the BT earpieces on it’s own. But the app apparently works, so +3 stars for that, -2 stars for being as useful as a screen door on a submarine.
Great app but no landscape support
by Tiarala on 2020/09/09 14:26
The app is a really convenient way to control my headphones but the continued lack of support for landscape orientation on iPad Pro seems like laziness. I’d happily give back the missing 2 stars if orientation were respected on iPad/iPad Pro.
Weak signal
by Thundakat26 on 2020/09/09 09:38
I love these headphones. Only problem I have with it is that the signal breaks down at times, even if I have my phone close by. Other than that, I have no issues. It’s very durable.

“Party Mode”
by ddernotlad on 2020/09/07 23:55
Entering “Party Mode” in the app, and connecting two compatible speakers together, is the most unreliable function I have ever encountered in any IOS app. As far as the rest of the app you might ask? I ask; what else is the app good for? When the speaker is powered on it announces its battery level to everyone therefore eliminating the need to open the app to check battery level. Oh and each speaker has a colored battery indicator on it. ZERO STARS!
LOVE this speaker and App.

Speakers are amazing, App/Software is trash
by dubsea4 on 2020/09/07 19:33
I purchased 2 Bose revolve pluses a year or so ago. The speakers sound amazing, but the app is terrible. It never connects the first time and when I try to pair/party mode them it always fails. This issue has been there since I first got the speakers, actually it may have got worse. Bose if you guys are going to charge $300 for a Bluetooth speaker then make the app just as good. One can’t work without the other.

Better to simply connect via Bluetooth and ignore this app. The only thing this app provides is to make it more difficult to connect Bose should be ashamed producing software like this.
Real Buggy App
by Jose Poncho James on 2020/09/05 19:41
Worked well at first. Doesn’t seem to work at all anymore. I have uninstalled and reinstalled speakers and app; it is hit or miss getting both speakers linked. I know have to link using the speakers themselves which works great. I have ditched this app.

by Parache787 on 2020/09/04 06:35
In my case I’m a music producer and I hace been a fan of that unique and clear sound that Bose can bring to a mix. I don’t know if they are pre equalized so you can hear the music or the sound in certain way. But it&#39;s noise cancelation technology is very impressive too. I‘m making some good quality mixes in my songs and I can see some difference between this and other headphones. Let’s say this are not the best headphone on the market but they have quality.
Great interface, very user friendly!

Almost perfect
by GG-DC on 2020/09/03 14:25
I love my Sound Control Bose headphone. I’ve had them for a couple years now and I use some still frequently and they still look and feel brand new. The durability is great they’ve traveled with me around the world multiple times. What I don’t love about this is that when the sound control is on high the pressure is unbearable on my eardrums. It’s very uncomfortable and almost painful. I have to go in and manually turn it down to low every time I use them so that I can tolerate the pressure.I wish there was a setting that would just allow it to stay in the low setting every time I turn them on so I don’t have to take my time to do it manually. Otherwise it’s a great product!
Hot Garbage
by Tyrueogpj on 2020/09/03 11:57

Designed for the Netscape Generation
by musiverse on 2020/09/02 04:30
Given the price point and the average 4.8 rating (among 174k), it’s highly likely that the average age of the Bose app user is 55 and up. — The app doesn’t allow landscape view. You load the app and it will force a portrait view. (At least on iPads.) Yet, no one seems to mind. — UX can be streamlined so that the app opens and goes directly to essential functions like noise-canceling levels. Instead, it opens to a glamour shot of your headphones.
Ok controls, ridiculously slow UI
by Herr Wiersdorf on 2020/09/01 21:56
This app does a decent job of exposing controls unavailable on the headphones themselves. However, it is so slow when connecting. I have to wait three seconds for the splash screen to play, and then another two to five seconds just to get to the controls. I wish they could speed this up. It should be instant. Also: why can’t I set a default sound canceling level? I don’t need max canceling for most of the time. I wish I could set a default. Finally: get rid of the splash screen. It’s annoying and doesn’t seem necessary. UPDATE: maybe it’s just the headphones, but my headphones are not working and this app is no help.

Middling at best
by kizziesings on 2020/08/29 00:30
I was never fully impressed with this app but functionally all I really needed was a way to control connectivity with the app and it did that...mosy. I don’t know if the software has worsened over time or if I’m just discovering these flaws as of late, but it’s all problematic and just way too many issues to give more than 1 star. I also can’t tell what’s a speaker issue vs an app issue, it all kind of blends into each other, so I’m just going to list all the problems I’m having. — THE BAD — Doesn’t Work With Do Not Disturb!! 😡: This alone gives this whole setup a 1 star for me. Everything else could be going well, but this condemns it. I have Do Not Disturb scheduled to stay on until my daughter wakes. My Phone was connected to the speaker and playing her sleep playlist. Set to Do Not Disturb. And yet, because my phone was connected to this speaker, a call came through and woke my sleeping baby. This had me ready to dump this thing in the trash. Seriously!! Why on earth would this thing override my Do Not Disturb!?? I am NEVER using this thing for my child again. I’ll use it for myself, sure, but I have a newborn. There are few scenarios where I’ll be using this just for me. Phone Calls &amp; Audio Switching: - Calls come in super soft with the speaker. If I switch to my iPhone audio, after a few moments the speaker hijacks the sound. So I have to disconnect or power off the speaker. - If my phone is connected to the speaker and I switch my audio to the phone speakers, after a few minutes, the Bose speaker randomly hijacks the sound. So I have to disconnect or power off the speaker. Distinguishing Between Bose Products: Example: If my iPad is connected to the speaker and I power on my Bose headphones to connect to my phone, the sound from my iPad automatically switches to my headphones. Nonsense. Audio Play With Two Devices Connected: Faulty. Just straight up faulty. When two devices are connected and I’m playing sound on one, the audio is choppy on one and won’t play at all on the other. I have to disconnect the unused device to restore the sound on the other. Which makes having two devices connected simultaneously all the more ridiculous. I would definitely prefer the extra device not connect at all. There should be a prompt when connecting asking ME which device to connect to. Automatic Connection To Two Devices: So the device auto-connects to the most recent two devices, which I don’t care for but I understand this feature. But if either of those devices can’t be found, the speaker searches for ANY other device it previously connected to and just arbitrarily picks a device. SO....WHACK! Again, having a sleeping child this makes for a HORRIBLE scenario. Cuz see, this can only be considered to work well if the speaker doesn’t glitch and for whatever reason can’t connect to the most recent device. This happens sometimes. My phone is always the most recent device, it’s right next to the speaker and yet the speaker doesn’t connect. So it gives up and goes searching for the next device it can find. So one night trying to put my child down for the night, I call myself connecting to play her sleep playlist, and instead of connecting to my phone, it latches on to my husband&#39;s phone and blasts at full volume some video he was watching in the other room! 😡 NOT the most recent device, NOT my two computers or iPad, it picks my husband’s phone. Connectivity Issues: Sometimes the speaker just won’t connect. Sometimes the app can’t even detect the speaker. All very random. Not a distance issue. Connection Announcement: — REVISED: I recently discovered you can actually turn this off, so this doesn’t count towards the negative review. Still going to mention for those who may not know that it is something that can be turned off in the Settings of the app. This does not however affect my rating. — *I NEVER liked this feature. When I connect a device, a voice announces out loud, at whatever the volume was set to before, “Connected to [Device Name]”. Super annoying when I’m trying to foster a quiet environment and play soft music, like say for my sleeping newborn. So there is no quiet way of switching devices. I have to listen to “[Device Name] disconnected” and “Connected to [Device Name]” one after the other and lay on that volume down button like a ninja to keep the speaker from blasting it. I can understand the value this feature might have to others, but there needs to AT LEAST be an ability to turn this feature off. Or at least just signal it with some soft beeps like when the speaker powers off. I can confirm in my settings whether or not it successfully connected, I don’t need that voice.* Bose App Connection Only: The app only works if the device is connected to the speaker. This is beyond frustrating. So if I want to use my phone app to control the speaker which is connected to my iPad, I have to connect my phone to the speaker first. This is pretty ridiculous. I have to interrupt playback in say YouTube (that doesn’t play in multi-tasking) on the iPad in order to operate the Bose app. The app should be able to just work despite the device I’m on. UI: I should just be able to tap the device I want to connect to my Bose, instead of having to swipe the little switch on the right. Swipe it away or tap and hold if I want to disconnect. Simple. This whole graphic of the headphones and swiping it down to connect, it’s pretty and all but it’s overkill. If the graphic is a must, just let it be a visual representation of ALL Bose devices detected and have a list of connectable devices below it that I can choose from. To clarify: If there are two Bose products detected, they should both appear on the screen giving me the option to select which one I want to connect to. Simple and clean. — THE GOOD — Great quality sound from such a teeny speaker. Same with headphones though their pretty ugly and bulky, but that’s feedback for another space.

Too buggy and frustrating
by promyk on 2020/08/26 01:14
I “can’t” connect the speaker to get inside the app even though I’m connected and paired. Keeps asking me to go to settings. Or to press the Bluetooth if I forget the device. I wanted to use this app to see if it would help with yet another problem with these speakers. They are too temperamental. Sometimes they will play music, other times (most often) they won’t. Even though they are paired and connected in setting and the speaker does say I’m connected. Too frustrating!

Area of Opportunity
by Secret Shopper on a Mission on 2020/08/20 13:29
Why does this app take 92 button clicks just to play 2 speakers in stereo mode? 1 out of 25 times it functions correctly. The other 24 times I have reconnect over and over. I don’t understand how a company with such great speakers can have such a bad app. What happened to the good old days when you pressed the power button and music played? So very, very, very frustrating. I will gladly revise my review if one of the app developers can spend some time fixing all the bugs. Original Review: I like the app. Would like it better if I could link more than 2 SoundLink Revolve speakers. I would fill my house with these speakers if the app allowed more than 2. I’ve never seen a company that actively dissuades consumers from buying their product like Bose. I’m trying to give them money, but I guess they don’t need it, lol. I’ve called tech support multiple times and they could honestly care less about this. Oh well.
Does Not Work
by Fonzel on 2020/08/20 01:01
Don’t know what to tell you other than it doesn’t work. Installed on iPhone 11 Pro, 256 Gb (plenty of space). Tried to get it to pair via Bluetooth with my Bose QuietComfort II headphones and app refused to “see” them. Repeatedly. Removed from memory, restarted app - no diff. After multiple attempts, gave up, went directly to iOS Bluetooth settings, there the headphones were, connected in two seconds. Why have a useless app that doesn’t work on your phone?

by Noegood on 2019/09/11 16:58
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.
Connection issues
by Richelle21 on 2019/12/29 01:58
I do love my Bose QC35 II headphones. They’ve been a lifesaver on airplanes. The problem though, is connecting to devices can be finicky. Sometimes it can find the device and other times it cannot. I have to turn off the head phone and turn them back on. Sometimes I have to do this multiple times before it finds the device. It’s very frustrating. Then, the volume is turned all the way down, every time, so I have to up the volume. Otherwise the TV volume is on 100. I have cheap Bluetooth devices that connect right away with no issues. You would think Bose would be better for as long as they have been around, and as much as you spend. I have tried other brand Bluetooth headphones on the fire TV and iPad. They always connect. They don’t drop out or cut in and out. However they don’t have the noise Canceling or quality that the Bose do. Please fix the Poor Bluetooth performance. My theory is it has to do with the feature that allows you to connect to two devices at once. The other headphones don’t have that option. The app may have a hard time determining which device it should be sending audio from. Even if my iPhone is not doing anything, it may be ignoring the Tv, thinking that it should be sending audio from the phone, for some strange reason. Also, if I turn Bluetooth off on my phone, I have issues with sound on the Tv.
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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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 &amp; 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!
Maybe I’m missing something?
by Pennyish on 2020/06/26 04:05
I hate the notifications I get while I’m on one device, that another device is not connected (or trying to connect). I mean, if I am listening on a device, if I can hear the notification, why should it matter if another device is trying to or not at all connecting. And if it wasn’t connecting to the device I was trying to listen to, I would know this without the dumb voice telling me so. It is incredibly annoying to hear this voice telling me it’s trying to connect to my iPad every 10 seconds while I’m trying to listen to something on my iPhone! I know that the app is supposed to show you the devices it’s connected to, and you can unconnect this way, but in my experience, this part of the part app disappears and is no where to be found most of the time. That is one problem which I think is probably an update issue, but the real issue IMO is the device notification: does anyone really need to know what devices are connected at all times when you’re listening to the device you want to listen to? Please allow the app to disable notifications about every device you own that at one point or other have been connected to the headphones.
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.
Easy to use and effective, but needs one thing
by App_User995 on 2020/06/26 19:30
The app is very easy to use the Bose Connect app with the QC35 ii headphones—it makes setting up the headphones like setting up an iPhone for the first time, but faster. It is not gimmicky; I am mostly pleasantly surprised. The one thing the app needs is an option to disable the dynamic range compression and other sound processing algorithms that come with the QC35 ii headset (similar to how it allows the user to disable voice prompts). I see why dynamic range compression can be a nice feature, but it dramatically reduces the listener’s ability to distinguish between the extreme differences in dynamic that are the emotional highlights of a superb classical music recording (and never mind any subtle differences, because those are simply inaudible with the sound processing). Because the noise cancelling is so incredibly good on these headphones, having an option to let the headphones produce exactly what the recording engineers intended for us to hear, quiets and louds and all, would be phenomenal. The QC25 headphones were much better at this.
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!
What’s the point?
by Andyinor on 2020/05/20 23:30
What is the point of having an extra app to connect to Bluetooth? What I find is that it blares in my ear “connecting to my iPad connecting to my iPad connecting to my iPad” when it’s already connected to my phone. If multiple devices are registered and one isn’t within range, good luck because it will continue to blabber on about not being able to connect to the other device. If you don’t have your credentials for the Bose app and you’re trying to stop the stupid thing from connecting to a device that isn’t even in the house, good luck. When I’m listening to music already and then interrupts to say it’s connected to another device, what good is that? I had removed it but because the headphones can’t connect multiple devices there are situations where I have to reload it, I totally don’t see what this app gives me beyond that. A good “Bluetooth connection app“ (if there is such a thing) should be seen, not heard. I am writing this review in a fit of frustration from having just missed an entire song listening to nothing but “connecting to my iPad“ which is 200 miles away.
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!
Undeniably one of the best headphones out there
by BoSE HEADPHOnES: Da bomb.com on 2019/12/29 06:57
AirPods are just a fancy name without wires. I tried having one and almost even three out my Bose headphones which btw would have been a HUGE mistake like many of the reviews the distance away you can be from your phone is unbelievable. The creators obviously know what they’re doing unlike the AirPod creators. I could barely hear any sound and apparently you have to go through a five-step process JUST TO CONNECT your phone. But I had overlooked that fact because the case of the AirPods was going to look so sophisticated but boy am I glad that I didn’t waste money on a case. Literally the only thing you can not do with the state of the art headphones that is always worth the price no matter what price it may be, is get a case for it. Now I am an “aesthetic person” but quality should come before anything when buying a product.
Biking
by Aceoflords on 2020/02/10 12:07
As a teen I would Manhattan with my Panasonic or Sony, not huge boom box but something I can carry comfortably usually that would reach from elbow to my hand. Also quality of sound ranges was important with a enhance base tone. I love salsa and the base key to all other instruments including the conga high and low. Bose product is awesome you just strap in on belt or bike, pole etc and you got everything you played for. I do long distance on bike and I turn back if I didn’t bring my Bose. Another good thing is I brought my dauther one for Christmas and I can pair in the house in stero and it sound great. I usually practice conga, bongo and if need be take my cajon bongo and Bose speaker’s to park and play. I do it for personal joy but I noticed I created a following when playing in public without looking for one. Great product. Only thing I wish it had is outlets specially one for ear plugs. I use it everyday.
They rock!
by MichaelWidener on 2020/09/19 18:54
These headphones are better than Apple’s AirPods. They feature an in-ear locking feature. It’s strange at first. Because to put them in you place the bus in your ear, almost on the right angle then, here’s the strange part, you twist away from yourself. Yes. As if you’re gonna take them out. And for some engineering reason only Bose knows, they just sink into your ear. And lock! My girlfriend, who’s mother was a piano teacher and taught her since she was three said “Excuse me I was just a concert!” when I gave them to her and let her hear them for the first time. Not stop and think about that. She plays piano. So she has a great ear. She plays Mozart and Beethoven. So yeah she knows crappy sound from great sound. I love Apple but those AirPods just fall out. I have then still but I’m not wearing them while I have these. These lock in. Invest in better sound. It’s worth it.
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.
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.
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 &amp; 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!
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.
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.
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.

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??
Much Easier than On-Speaker Controls
by Clawfford on 2020/01/04 16:48
The software is much easier to use than trying to set up my Revolve+ speakers via the controls on top. I don’t change things very often, so remembering what the button icons mean (or what button COMBOS I need to press) often requires a search for instructions. MUCH easier just to use this software. There is one feature I’d like to see implemented if possible... when pairing two speakers in STEREO MODE, the software seems to decide almost at random which one it locates first to be the left channel. As often as not, it detects the wrong speaker first. The easiest fix instead if battling software is usually to physically move the speakers to get the L/R orientation corrected. It would be nice to have a simple toggle button for “Swap Stereo Channels (Left/Right)” so that I don’t have to go through the unplug-move-replug routine.
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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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.
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.

sound sport pulse i love the way they rest in ear canal the best i have owned and i have had everything from air pods to other Bose and my pulse are my favorite and im not one who is gentle on any thing or any one and if i can have a product last 6 months with me it is worth having and ruged because like i said i am not the type who coddles things no matter what they cost i have had my pulse for over a year and the only problem i am now starting to encounter is the power button is getting to where it dont want to turn on or off but the sound is still that beautiful Bose sound i love you Bose thank you for giving me every thing i would expect from the best sounding wireless headphones on the market and with the added bonus of incredible durability
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.
Bose is Boss
by Dizzoness on 2020/04/23 18:28
Bose Soundwear is my boss and I’ve made a career out of using their products exclusively. The price you pay is reasonable and the benefits are great! (Notice my corny wordplay lol). Overall I gave Bose Soundwear a 5 star rating because everything from start to finish was a smooth experience, from the online buying process to finally giving your new device a name as you place that puppy on your shoulders. The sound quality won’t disappoint especially if you love bass. It doesn’t need much volume to really feel immersed in whatever you listen to. Most of all it is quite comfortable and you could easily forget that you are wearing it. I recommend buying this for anyone who are feeling hesitant to pull the trigger. It really follows through with their promises. Go for it!
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!
Seriously Bose?
by keylime.com on 2020/01/27 03:42
I&#39;m a long-time fan of Bose. Currently I have a number of their products scattered around my home, the hardware is hard to equal. This review is specifically in regard to this app and its interface with my iPad Pro and two Bose SoundLink Revolve speakers. First off, the app stays in portrait mode, a iPad is ALWAYS in landscape mode. This should not be. I started with one Revolve speaker just to bump up the volume when putzing around in the kitchen, but I discovered that an additional Revolve could be added, giving the option for ”party” or ”stereo” modes. Excellent! The linking of the two speakers is absolute frustration. The seemingly simple (sideways, remember portrait-mode only) graphics are futile. I have yet to follow the instructions with success on the first attempt, sometimes it takes up to 5-minutes of rebooting the app, restarting the speakers, ”searching” for speakers that are sitting inches away from the iPad and each other. This particular features abysmal. I expect so much more from you Bose.
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 &#34;low&#34; 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&#39;t find the headphones even though I&#39;m on a call while using them, so I can&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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!
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 &gt; 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.
Soundlink micro rarely links to other.?WORTHLESS!!!
by seriouslyareyoudoingthis on 2020/03/30 02:53
This software is unreliable, and the last thing I wanna see after a failure is a WHOOPS screen. I expected far more from Bose, but clearly not a software company. IPad Pro wouldn’t mind a proper app too... what is the problem here? I bought these speakers only for the stereo mode, which almost never works. Your app wastes a lot of clicks too, should be far easier to operate, when/if it works. To go into stereo mode you first have to slide a photo of the speaker down, whereafter there is an animation that makes it seem that it’s doing something. Sometimes it connects to the first speaker, sometimes not. Often it asks you to pair the speaker, but this rarely solves anything, as it was already paired. Getting the second speaker to work is a bit more hit or miss, and stupid tedious... you press the double speaker icon, which brings you to what I can only assume is a marketing screen, which requires another click to actually do anything (this screen should be removed). If it actually connects, it’s still not in stereo mode... it’s in PARTY MODE. Now, just one more click... what looks like a switch, and Voila... WHOOPS (at least 1/3 the time. Nobody else is getting this??. Very disappointing. Redesign, hire somebody competent, rework the speakers. Worthless, ruins good speakers when you cannot reliably connect.
Update: Great App Could use Additional Features
by iDrive55 on 2020/01/22 16:20
When using two Revolves in stereo mode the left channel crackles and cuts in and out. I love the sound of the Revolve. So much so I bought two. I also love the ability to pair the two together through this app. However, there are a couple of features that I would like to see in future update. One, I would really like to see a landscape view on the iPad. Two, it would be nice if the app remembered the last setting. Example: I paired my two Revolves to ‘Party Mode (stereo). Now every time I reconnect, I have to go through Party Mode pairing procedure (again). It would be nice if the app would resume from the last setting.
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&#39;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!
Better than Samsung-Fact. TP-RN
by BHTYW on 2019/12/29 13:28
Bought Samsung best last week. LEFT BUD wouldn’t play at all AFTER the 2nd charge or work. When attempting to Charge fully for the 2nd use, LEFT RED BUD LIGHT came on &amp; ONLY RIGHT BUD LIGHT GREEN came on &amp; fully charged. After charging only RIGHT BUD WOULD only function. Other wise the quality of sound was great for the price. Good thing this happened. Researched on Internet &amp; found others had same problem. Took back to Wal*art &amp; exchanged for these. When I called SAMSUNG’s CUSTOM SERVICE to report, the Rep. was border line rude as if they had heard this frequently. And I didn’t research head &amp; found out after I got home. The software IS NOT USE-ABLE on Apple anything. I wouldn’t have bought them if I had known that. I got to have &amp; depend on the AP software on IS any wireless Bluetooth, I think Samsung intended this for marketing/SALES OF SAMSUNG’s PRODUCTS. “HEY SAMSUNG”, if that was planned for sales of any of your products, it actually hurt your marketing. Just bought a 65” flat screen” SAMSUNG O or Q LED I think it’s called.- 3 weeks ago &amp; it has some restrictions to be used only ON SAMSUNG on their merchant.
Convenient, easy to use app.
by LD or TB on 2018/05/20 02:28
Nice app to augment the features &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; kids. Also, just recently purchased the Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones which i really enjoy for pure solitude music listening.
