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.
When you turn the device on, it reports its battery state and what devices are currently active. You can pair it with numerous devices but it will only play audio from one device at a time. It has some kind of built-in logic to allow your phone to interrupt another device. For example, if you are listening to music on your laptop which is paired to the phones, they will switch to your phone if a call is coming in. (You can ignore a call by pressing and holding the "Multi-function" button on the headset, situated between the up- and down-volume buttons.
To turn on the headset, slide the power button to the central position. To put the headset into Bluetooth pairing mode, push the power button all the way to the right (it will spring back). The headset will then report to which devices it is currently connected.
I've already brought the QC35 on a couple of plane trips, and it has performed quite well, muting the dull roar of the engines down to almost complete silence. It's the only way to really enjoy a video or music on a flight without jacking up the volume to harmful levels in your ears. Now that the FAA has relaxed the electronics-off rules, you can leave this device turned on the entire flight, from take-off to landing.
Phone calls work well with the QC35; just put them on and pair once with your phone, and you are good to go. Once your call is under way, you can put your phone back in your pocket where it belongs, and talk wirelessly. It's also handy for playing games quietly on your phone or tablet. I enjoy watching Youtube or streaming movies in bed at night and this headset is comfortable for lying on a pillow, not true of all headphones.
Bose provides a free mobile app for both Android and Apple devices that lets you set some preferences on the headset, such as turning off the talking feature and enabling/disabling some paired devices. It's handy if you wish for example to force the headset to ignore a device such as a laptop that's emitting audio and make it instead work only with your phone. When a paired device emits audio, the Bose QC35 automatically makes it the active device on the list, which you usually want, but not always.
Back when I was working in a noisy office, I found noise canceling headphones very helpful for blocking out the world so I could concentrate. Working from home, with a noisy family in the background, I find them equally useful. They are so good that you literally might not hear someone addressing you until they tap you on the shoulder. You might not hear the microwave beeping that it's done. A phone call might be missed, unless your headset is connected to the phone. You might not hear the doorbell.
The battery seems to last a very long time; I haven't done a drainage test but they are rated 20 hours and I have yet to get them down below 60%. They charge up quickly on a typical micro-USB charger and you can take them on a pretty long plane ride and not worry about needing to recharge. Your phone will die a lot sooner than these headphones. They will work without battery charge, by the way, if you use the included cable, though of course you don't get the noise cancellation.
Note by the way that the battery is not user-serviceable. In other words, you can't change the battery, which distinguishes this model from the previous Bose QC 25 headset; that model runs on one AAA alkaline battery that lasts 35 hours, then requires replacement. It's a tradeoff that some may find unacceptable if they need the noise cancellation for long hours out in the field. If you routinely fly New York to Australia, for example, you're possibly going to prefer the QC25 to the QC35 because you can easily carry a few spare AAA's. On the other hand, you can also get an external phone charger battery that will top off your QC35 and still have enough juice to recharge your phone and other peripherals on a long flight.
The kit comes with a stereo cable to connect directly to a phone or other audio source. I have yet to use it. Bluetooth is ubiquitous today and if you have an audio device that lacks Bluetooth capability, you can add it by purchasing an inexpensive Bluetooth transmitter for around $20 and plugging it into the audio device's stereo headphone jack. I'm planning to get one for the digital piano in the living room, to get away from having a wire dragging off my head while practicing late at night.
Bose doesn't really have a monopoly anymore on sound cancellation; good noice cancelling headsets are made by many other top manufacturers such as Sony, Sennheiser, Bohm, AKG, and a host of Chinese knockoffs that range from OK-ish to very good, often for a fraction of the price. But Bose is still the state of the art in high end noise cancellation.
Second and most importantly, the sound. I listen to music all the time from Hip-Hop to Classical Piano, the sound on these headphones is deep, rich, layered and clear. Everything I listen to sounds beautifully orchestrated.
Third, a bonus feature is the battery is quick to charge and lasts a long time. I often forget to turn them off and the next day I still have battery life. Super great for a guy like me.
Overall, these are the best headphones money can buy! They can be used to your benefit in many ways. A great purchase, probably my best purchase of the year.

***EDIT***Three years later and my headphones are working brilliantly. You can't ask for better than that.
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.
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.
