Really terrible. Very surprising that something this bad comes from Bose. You can be in the same room with both Revolve speakers and it won't find them. Or it will find them and refuse to connect.
Very Useful 5/5
I haven't used my headphone in a while suddenly I use the app cause I decided to start using them again and it asks and then the apps asks for an update on the headphones! I just thought it was very neat and extremely easy to use as it was helping me.
Firmware update failure 4/5
The app worked fine connecting to my soundsport earbuds. But the app says "preparing update" with a 30-minute timer. At the end of 30 minutes, nothing happens...it just restarts the timer for another 30 minutes! Very irritating. Please Bose, either fix the problem or turn the timer off for God's sake.
UPDATE: Bose fixed the issues I was having. Works great now. Thank you Bose.
Update takes forever 1/5
Firmware Update takes for ever. Worst app
Notifications are too loud 3/5
I agree with review below allow us to control volume of the notifications - it's way too loud
By IM THE B0$$
I can't update my product (quiet comfort 35)
Will never buy Bose headphones again. Steer clear of Bose.
Don't make me add apps to my phone 1/5
By Owen Starkiller
I use these headphones for my computer. Why should I have to download firmware through my phone.
Best headphones ever 5/5
By Frisco Castro
Very good quality. Expensive but great quality
Great overall 5/5
By Jawad Afzal
Loved it, good sound and great fit
Firmware update loop 1/5
I have the auto shutoff timer be "never" so I'm sure the device didn't shut off or lose connection, but the 30 minute update "download" keeps repeating itself over and over again but didn't actually update the firmware. Please fix this and include it in the next release note!
Absolutely worthless App. It showed my QC 35s and like instructed I dragged the headphone image to pair. Showed "connecting" Then headphones audio said: "mobile device not found" no connection. Tried it a dozen times, then paired through my iPad's normal Bluetooth control page; instantly connected and works great. Thanks for wasting my time bose.
Loud notifications sound 1/5
I'm about to stop using this app because the sound are pretty loud, this thing can make you go death. There should be an option to lower the volume or turn it off like Voice Prompts
Love Bose 5/5
By Brandon McCracken
Great app helps a lot and I love all my Bose products
I downloaded the app for my soundsport wireless headphones. Not sure what the pint of it all is? Not much else to say.
Updates take forever 1/5
Why does it take half an hour or more to download one update for one pair of headphones? My internet is fast, 100mbps, connection strong, but the update process is super slow.
Ok app 3/5
Main use I found is swing the battery life and firmware updates which is actually really nice. But, I really wish Bose had an equalizer part of the app that would make it better then the jaybirds. Come on Bose you can do it I believe
Great app 5/5
By Sickle v
Find very useful and works well
Notifications too loud 1/5
Please please please add a way to disable notifications entirely or to reduce their volume. Right now you can only select voice or tone notifications, and they are extremely loud, even if you're listening to something very quietly.
There's also an extremely poor design choice of screaming in your ear when one of two devices is disconnected, even if that device isn't delivering the audio... you're listening to a podcast on your phone and walk away from your computer "MACBOOK PRO DISCONNECTED!!!!" Great, thanks for needlessly deafening me for a useless notification.
Bose please please fix this and allow users to control the volume of notifications or mute them entirely. Your hardware is great but the poor software makes these very expensive headphones unusable.
QC 35 Custom Edition....... 5/5
This Is My 2nd Pair Of QC35's.
I'm Sorry For Anyone Experiencing Problems With The Upgrade. The Only Thing Irritating About The UpdateWith The Sound Cancelling Control Is. why Didn't Bose Do It Sooner? I Was A Tad Spooked Being Home Alone Trying To Utilize Them, Not Knowing If Someone Could Be In My House And I'd Never Know!!!!
However Now I Can Hear Outer Surrounding Noise And Still Enjoy My Music. When I Want Full Sound Cancelling I Have That Option As Well. And Linking My Headphones Together With My Girls QC35's While We Are In The Gym Is Stellar Keep It Up🏋🏾🏃🏿♀️🎧👏🏿.........
For those of you with perpetual updating 3/5
Make sure that the auto shutoff timer is set to something greater than 20 minutes or just listen to the device for the full 30 minutes that's it is updating, or else it will shut off and restart!
App works fine 5/5
I really don't see the problem with the app, it does what it's supposed to do
Great app! Barebones but it works
First, I don't know how could I have lived any portion of my life without the Bose Bluetooth earphones!!!!! I mean, THEY KNOOOOOOWWWW!!!!
This app is the cherry on top! I mean, cherry, strawberry, whatever!!!!
The sound quality is ABSURDLY GOOD!!!!
Garbage app 1/5
By LAN Guy
Crashes frequently. Fails to connect to headphones. Mostly useless.
Be careful with this app. Bose is collecting your usage data (including serial number) so they can tie your usage to you specifically. I'm not sure I trust Bose any longer, but you can opt out on the privacy tab of the app. Probably doesn't do anything, but it's worth to a try.
Bose, how does knowing what songs I play improve your product? It can't possibly. It can, however, make you money when you sell it to anybody who wants it.
Great headphones - very frustrating to use. 3/5
I don't like this app or the interface - it doesn't work well - I'm 80% of the way to returning these headphones.
They sound great though and noise cancel pretty well.
Good speaker, not great. Like the jaybirds app I would like to have seen an eq setting. Otherwise it would have been a 5 🌟
Quite incomplete 1/5
By islands in the sun
Gives the first step of help and then? Nothing follows!
App is perfect 5/5
By Aces 109
App is cleaned up, not nearly as glitchy. Helps switching and managing devices! Easiest set of wireless headphones I've ever had
App will not connect to Soundlink speaker 1/5
Very frustrating. All of a sudden I cannot longer connect the app to the Soundlink speaker.
It plays music from iPhone fine, but app does not recognize speaker and keeps
telling me to pair it even though already paired. None of the app features are therefore available. Needs fixing!!
Perpetually updating 1/5
I installed the app after I purchased the headphones. It began downloading an update, which took over 30 minutes. After the download was complete, the restarted the download again. I have gone through 5 downloads, noticing that the app version stays the same. I finally gave up and deleted the app. The Bose headphones are great, but unfortunately the app doesn't uphold the same quality standards as their hardware.
Not very impressive 3/5
Why are you limiting the party function to revolve+ speakers only? Being software driven, just add the functionality to connect to all of my Bose speakers. Rip-off.
Apple Watch switcher? 5/5
Please make an Apple Watch companion app that lets you switch Bluetooth connections on and off.
Would be fantastic not to have to find my phone to do that.
Hocus pocus garbage
Best in class software updates 5/5
I'm amazed every time I have an update from Bose. Having new features on your headphones makes the whole product a delight. Keep up the good work!
It's Amazing 5/5
By Gab Perú
I like this App
Great, keep it going ! 5/5
Extremely happy with the adjustable noise cancellation. Works really well, when outside or under a fan. A couple things I hope could be fixed is its Bluetooth capabilities, maybe a farther range ?
Sound link Color ll 5/5
My wife and I love the app. Easy as 1-2-3 and it works! That's what we want.
Don't update firmware 1/5
Dooooon't dooooo it
Bluetooth connection hasn't worked since
Can be better 2/5
This app can be better
Cannot load the manual and the help
Please fix this problem 3/5
I love my
SOUNDSPORT, but the only thing that would make me sell it is, that ringing sound when I call someone is too high but the voice after the call is answered is normal and the hang up and the hanging up noise com up is too loud please adjust the calling sound level as the same as the ringer level my ear started to hurt
Noice cancellation now adjustable 5/5
With a firmware update to your headset, you can control noise cancellation amount in this app. Best feature ever!
Works great for me 5/5
I just got a pair of qc35s last week. They worked great, then the app updated the firmware, and they still work great! It's nice being able to adjust the noise cancellation level. I'd prefer a continuous control instead of just having 3 levels, but this is better than I expected.
Waste of time 1/5
Never connected to my AE2
Adjustable Noise Cancellation 5/5
Exactly what I've been wanting on the QC35s... 3 levels of noise cancellation: high, low and off. Great job, Bose!
Lousy connectivity 2/5
6/22 revision: DO NOT UPDATE QC35 to firmware version 1.3.2 (contained within 4.2 app update). Total Bluetooth failure, will not pair or connect afterwards. This is not an isolated incident, other reviewers are having similar experiences. Not worth it.
Old review: More often than not just generally fails to connect to my Bose products. Have to constantly power cycle them to get it to work, if it ever does!
By Natasha L
This app is terrible. It has been updating forever and the update still has not happened
Good but, 3/5
The noise cancelling settings get reset every time you turn off the headphones!
I would like to see this be saved
Simple, simple, simple. Entirely too simple!
Noise Canceling 4/5
I thought I would never use the new option that makes possible to disable the noise canceling feature on my QC35, but turns out that it can be useful sometimes! I'm enjoying this new capability!
