Check the Cable and Charger:

Ensure that the USB cable and wall charger you are using are both in good working condition. You can test them by using them to charge another device to see if they work properly.

Look for any visible signs of wear, tear, or damage on the cable and the connectors. Damaged or faulty cables can prevent your headphones from charging properly.

Inspect the Headphone Charging Port:

Examine the charging port on your Bose QuietComfort 700 headphones for any debris, dust, or foreign objects that might obstruct the connection.

Clean the port carefully. Use a dry, soft-bristled brush or a can of compressed air to gently remove any debris from the charging port.

Reset the Headphones:

  1. Turn Off the Headphones: Make sure your headphones are turned off. You can do this by pressing the power button until you hear the power-down tone or see the power light turn off.
  2. Connect to Power: Plug the headphones into a USB power source using the charging cable. This could be a computer USB port, a wall charger, or any other USB charging port. Make sure the power source is on and functioning.
  3. Wait and Disconnect: Leave the headphones connected to the power source for at least 5 seconds. This short period allows the headphones to register the power connection, which is necessary for the reset process.
  4. Unplug the Headphones: After waiting for at least 5 seconds, disconnect the charging cable from the headphones. This step is crucial as it initiates the internal reset process.
  5. Leave Them Off: Once you’ve disconnected the charging cable, leave the headphones turned off for 1 minute. During this time, the headphones will go through a reset process internally, clearing any temporary glitches or issues.
  6. Turn the Headphones On Again: After waiting for a minute, turn the headphones back on by pressing the power button. You should hear the start-up tone or see the power light, indicating that the headphones are turning on.
  7. Test the Headphones: Finally, test the headphones to see if the reset has resolved the charging issue. Try charging them again or check if any previous operational issues have been fixed.

Resetting your Bose QuietComfort 700 headphones doesn’t erase any of your settings or paired devices. It’s a safe process to refresh the system and resolve minor glitches. If the problem persists after the reset, further troubleshooting or contacting Bose support may be necessary.

Try a Different Power Source:

    • Do not turn off your headphones or disconnect them from the app during the update process.
  6. Completion and Restart:
    • After the firmware update is complete, the headphones may restart automatically.
    • The app should indicate that the update has been successfully installed.
