YES! I’ve updated the firmware to the lastest version.
YES! I’ve attempted the reset instructions that Bose has suggesteds
I emailed Bose to get service options. Was the firmware updated? Yes. Did I do a reset? Yes. Have I taken delicate care of my product? Yes - these were babied and used exclusively indoors. But the problem still persisted into May 2018. A quick Google search and looking at Amazon reviews show this is a frequent issue among users.
So I called Bose and asked for a replacement due to this common defect. They refused, quoting the expired warranty and offered to replace with QC35 II at a discounted price of $250. I protested the price to which I negotiated to $150 because if you look at the QC 35 II, it's the same button design that failed. Am I expected to shell out $250 every year to have functioning headphones?
I ultimately refused their service because I no longer have confidence in their quality. This will be the LAST Bose product I will buy. You would expect a $350 flagship product to last more than 1.5 years, right? And if the issue is happening at a high rate, one would expect Bose to take responsibility and provide affordable or free repairs - especially for their flagship model. Do a quick search on "QC35 turning on by itself" and you will see many posts with the same complaint.
I also own the QC25 which had its right earpiece fail a year after purchase - this was also a common issue with reports all over the internet. I'm disappointed in Bose and can no longer recommend them to you or my family and friends due to this history of poor quality.
1. Representatives should first listen to what has been attempted by the caller. I understand that there is likely a guide/flowchart for resolution, but having to explain to the representative "Nope, I can't do that due to the issue I've been attempting to explain" is frustrating (Rep: "Slide the switch towards the bluetooth symbol for 10 seconds". Me: "I've told you that doesn't work, but I'm doing it." Rep: "Now you should be hearing the confirmation." Me: "Nope." Rep: "Just slide the switch to the bluetooth setting for 10 seconds." Me: "I am and I have." Rep: "You should be hearing the confirmation." Me: "Nope. Because it's not working. That's why I called." Rep: "Are you sliding the correct switch <explains switch location>?" Me: "Yes." Rep: "Are you holding it for 10 seconds?" Me: "Yes." Rep: "It sounds like there may be a problem with the switch on the headphones. Please hold while I attempt to find a way to resolve this problem."
2. Representatives/Bose Support should not utilize and even use as a troubleshooting referral/tool the Community Support area on the Bose website if they are going to discredit the information given in that site. When I indicated that the bluetooth switch not working on some models of the QC 35, citing the Bose website, I was told "No, that issue does not exist for these headphones." If one reads the community support that Bose encourages users to utilize it is clear that this is a problem. If Bose Support does not think the information on the Community Support site is valid, then don't refer customers to it.
3. After paying over $350 for a luxury product, I think it was inappropriate to then ask for me, the customer who was supplied with a defective item, to then be required to give my credit card information and pay for shipping. When this happened, I actually double checked that I had contacted the correct Bose support phone number as I thought I had perhaps stumbled into a scam.
4. I was told by the representative the amount that I would be charged for shipping. When the first email was received, I was actually charged more. So not only was I required to give my credit card number, and get charged for shipping a defective product, I was not even given the correct charge. Did I stumble into a scam after all?
5. The support emails that were sent had dead image links (making it look even more like a scam) and were in two parts. The information about the "Return #" was not mentioned during the call and was not mentioned in the first email until the very end. That information should have been clear and at the beginning of the email. The second email, the one that actually had the shipping label, did not mention at all that a Return number was needed. It simply had instructions for attaching the shipping label. In short, don't split shipping instructions across two emails, make sure that relevant information is presented first, and fix your image links.
6. The emails that were sent have also indicated that I am required to now insure the headphones being returned for their $350 value. This is yet another charge to insure a product that no longer even works properly. Your returns policy is not fair and is misleading.
7. The survey asks if I would refer family or friends and simply gives a 1-10 Likert scale for likely/unlikely. I want to make clear that, based upon this experience, I will actively discourage others from buying a Bose product until the problems outlined above have been addressed. I also intend to publish this information at the site where the purchase was made.
To add insult to injury, after taking the time to complete the survey, the Bose website experienced a "Runtime" error due to a configuration problem that actually presents a security risk (the customErrors tag does not appear to have been turned off, and configuration information is presented - a "no no"). Attempts to try and resubmit simply result in the same error. Their survey tool is broken.
To be clear, the Bose Community Support site has multiple posts seeming to indicate that the latest Firmware update breaks the functionality of the bluetooth pairing feature. One can still use the Bose Connection app to delete devices and connect, but 1) only on IOS and Android devices (not Windows, Linux, etc.) 2) can only connect to one device at a time, deleting the previously paired device and adding the new one [the headphones are advertised as being able to connect to more than one device], and 3) the bluetooth pairing feature on the headphones themselves remains broken.
I will be attempting to return the headphones today. Customer support indicated that after the headphones are received, it can take 10 days to verify the receipt, several more days to process, and then another week or two for shipping the replacement. Approximately 3-6 weeks from the sound of it. I carefully took pictures to show how I shipped the item back, including the RMA on 3 surfaces of the outside of the box as well as another copy inside the plastic bag that contain the headphones. And, of course, the shipping label for which I had to pay. I'll try to update how long it takes and if any further difficulties are experienced.

Je n'avais pas lu les reviews avant sur le net grosse erreur, j'y reviendrai. Reçu le 20 Juillet 2018
Au déballage pas de surprise, je le mets sur la tête sans musique et 1er effet: je ne m'entends même pas parler!
Mon fils s'en sert ensuite pour écouter de la musique. Le lendemain, j'installe le soft pour voir si il y a une mise à jour, il la trouve et l'installe.
Le casque était en version 1.xx et il me trouve une version 2.xx. Je me dis bon plan, ça va être encore mieux.
Grosse erreur! Dès la màj finie, je retente l'expérience et là je m'entends parler, même si il ya désormais plusieurs niveaux d'atténuation via software.
Mais même à fond c'est très en dessous de la version originale. Donc grosse déception.
Surtout qu'après de nombreuses recherches j'ai vu que le problème et bien connu (et nié par Bose) donc si vous avez la chance de recevoir un casque en version originale 1.xx qui atténue très fort SURTOUT ne l'upgradez pas, il n'y a pas de retour en arrière.
I work in an open office environment and using these are a delight to remove almost all background noise and makes you feel like you locked in a little quiet bubble. I don’t have a bad thing to say about these the battery lasts ages and charges quickly just 15mins charge will give you 2.5hrs use. The headphones come with a charging lead, dual phono adapter for using on flights and also a single jack lead to use in the event of total battery failure you can still use and listen to music just without the noise cancelling (NC) functionality.
I have found one specific limitation: I wear them at work in noise calling mode to better focus in our open plan setup. I decided one day to try them on a Skype conference call. They worked really well for me, but my colleague who sits opposite me and was on the same call complained that he could hear his own voice echo back at him all the time. It’s either the microphone that is so good, or its positioning (or both), but I had to switch back to my usual Skype headset which he said was much better.
If only companies still had real offices...
The Bluetooth connectivity range is quite short which can sometimes be annoying but it doesn't deflect from the purpose of the headphones at all.
Battery life is generously long and the charging time is surprisingly quick too!
There is leakage however, maybe due to how loud I play my music so if you're in a quiet environment it might be a problem but outdoors, practically unnoticeable I'm sure!
Not usually being the person to spend much on headphones, I was tempted to the QC35s and have not looked back since! The build quality is outstanding, the sound quality is superb and the noise cancelling is incredible.
I use these headphones both to commute to/from work on the train, and whilst at work. I work for a digital agency so the office is (naturally) fairly noisy (computers, talk and other music), but these headphones have worked wonders in improving my listening pleasure and thought process when I'm trying to concentrate.
The wireless connectivity has never faulted since day one (not experienced any dropouts) and it flips between phone and computer effortlessly. I really can't see myself going back to wired headphones after using these!
For the first time ever, I was also able to comfortably enjoy a film on a flight as the QC35s come with an adaptor for the audio socket on planes. No engine sounds coming through, yet could hear sufficiently through them when I was being talked to. I'm sure, on long haul, they might even help to reduce the level of jet lag you experience as constant engine noise is now thought to be a contributing factor.
If you're on the fence, go for it. Your music, and ears, deserve it!
These Bose headphones have absolutely outstanding noise cancellation. I compared this with some of the top headphones and these come top. When you take them off you can’t believe how much background noise they block out. So peaceful!
On the other hand, I really wish I could pause and stop the ANC by touch like Sony implemented and also the ANC should be a hardware switch, not needing a phone to turn it off.
I can honestly say I was not disappointed! The noise cancellation alone works wonders for drowning out general background & ambient noise to the point that I only need to play music at a very low volume to be immersed in my own little world... away from the chaos around me!
Most comfortable pair of headphones I've ever worn, light and soft - barely know they are on my head.
General FYI - I suffer from vertigo and was worried the noise cancellation would set it off... it does not. It can create a pressure difference in the ears feeling like they need to pop initially but you get used to it after a few seconds.
Then in their corporate wisdom, there was a firmware upgrade that, for various reasons we applied and suddenly they are almost useless on noise cancelling. Went backwards and forwards with BOSE, who reupplyied new units with what they claimed were the original firmware (they were not).
Look at the BOSE forums where there were 1000's (literally) of people complaining of the same issues. BOSE response was that users need to supply them with before and after examples with sound files (really!) - clearly impossible to do after an upgrade and ridiculous to expect their customers to undertake their product evaluation.
You can tell that they know about this, are embarrassed about it but not going to do anything (for inexplicable reasons) as they have closed down every single thread on their website on this subject.
How is it such a great brand (I have loads of other BOSE) can handle this so badly, and still have the opinion-former reviewers claiming brilliance for the product. Perhaps because they get freebies or get paid? Don't waste your money as these are nothing better than a decent pair of cans, unless you can get an "original" pair on ebay.
I have flown a lot with them (Sweden to Australia, Thailand etc) and they are awesome for cutting out the airplane drone, babies crying and general people noise ;-) Finally I can watch a movie and actually hear everything properly. They ship with a cable and aircraft adapter that lets you plug in to the in-flight media instead of having to use the crappy little headphones they hand out on the aircraft. This is a huge deal if you fly a lot or even just now and then.
For every day use they are also fantastic. The sound is really amazing and the battery life is not even something I ever worry about. I need to charge them a few times a week depending on how often I use them. I use them on my daily commute on the train to work (40 mins each way) and listen to music or a podcast and don't get disturbed at all by the train noises. Then during the day for listening to music while blocking out the surrounding work area sounds.
You can have them connected over bluetooth to 2 devices at once to easily switch between your iPhone and iPad for example.
I connect them over bluetooth to my Apple TV when I watch movies in order to not disturb sleeping kids. Same thing when I'm playing games. If I don't want to disturb people while playing I just plug in with the cable to my PS4 control.
The only negative thing I have to say is that the ear cups are starting to "fall apart". The soft, rounded cup that goes over the ears has started to drop little pieces of plastic. The inside of the right cup has lost some of the stitching so that the foam under the cup is now visible. I guess this is to be expected after almost 2 years of daily use. I've ordered new ear cups now so hopefully they will last at least as long as the originals.
Nonetheless they are still good headphones. If blocking out your surroundings is your aim then they will do the job perfectly as I can barely hear any sound on the tube and on an aeroplane, and am very surprised how much noise is cancelled out when I take them off.
Other than the lack of bass I think these headphones sound great are comfortable and block out sound extremely well. 4/5 stars
The sound quality is certainly very good and I have found the battery life to be very good too.
The noise cancelling seems to do its job best when listening to something rather than trying to create a silent environment. I have these for use in the home and garden, not for use in-flight. They certainly mask the sound of background traffic, neighbours using strimmers, other neighbours playing their own music obnoxiously loudly. All the things I wanted them to do.
The only problem I have found is to try to find a Bluetooth transmitter to use with the headphone jack on my elderly amplifier. The quality of the available Bluetooth transmitters seems to be poor and aimed at speech/phone calls rather than hi-fi music.
After posting this I noticed all the reviews stating that the noise cancellation is diminished following a firmware upgrade. It's true, I now seem to be able to hear sounds that were almost inaudible when I first owned these headphones. But, on checking the firmware level on mine it is still as it was out of the box. i.e. the version before people perceived a problem. I wonder if, for me, it is a function of the brain cleverly taking the sound input from the ears and boosting the relative levels back to what it thinks is "normal". In any case, the headphones still work fine when listening to music, but now I daren't update the firmware, just in case everyone is right.
