Intermittent audio from product

If the sound played from your product cuts in and out, plays inconsistently or is choppy-sounding, try the following:

Disconnect any secondary Bluetooth devices that may be connected to your Bose Product

When in multipoint, a secondary Bluetooth device could possibly receive a text/email notification and try to broadcast audio to your product. This could interrupt the primary Bluetooth connection/audio stream which effects Bluetooth bandwidth, causing intermittent audio or sporadic Bluetooth connections.

To eliminate any interruptions, we recommend turning off Bluetooth on your secondary device which is connected to your Bose product.

Clear your Bose product memory of previously-connected Bluetooth® devices.

Your Bose product remembers the last several devices it connected to so it can quickly reconnect to them. In case there is an issue with the device memory, clear it and then try to reconnect the device. For more info, see Clearing the product memory of paired Bluetooth® devices and Connecting a Bluetooth® device.

On the Bluetooth® device, remove all entries of your Bose product from the Bluetooth menu. Then, try connecting again.

In the Bluetooth menu of the Bluetooth device, you'll find a list of Bluetooth products that have been previously connected. Your Bose product might show up one or more times in the list (i.e. it might be listed a second time with "LE" in the name). Select each entry for your product and remove it by selecting Forget, UnpairDelete or something similar. After, try connecting again. For more info, see Connecting a Bluetooth® device.

Be sure your product is within 33 feet (10 meters) of the Bluetooth® device.

Bluetooth range is about 33' (10 m). This range can be reduced by obstacles (i.e. walls, doors, pockets, nearby Bluetooth devices, etc.). Try moving the device and product closer together.

Check the cellular reception of your phone.

A weak connection to the cell service could cause poor audio quality while on a call. Try the call again when the reception improves.

Try playing different types of media.

Different media types might produce different quality sound. For example, Podcasts, music stored locally on your phone, MP3s, streaming music services (Spotify, Pandora), videos on your device or stored in the cloud, etc. can all vary in quality. Try different media to determine if the issue is specific to certain media.

Try a different app.

If the issue only occurs with a particular app, it is likely related to the app or app settings.

Reset your product.

Much like rebooting a smartphone, your product might need to be reset on occasion to correct minor issues. For more info, see Resetting your product.

Try a different set of powered speakers.

If available, connect a different set of powered speakers. If the same issue occurs, the issue is with the computer or its audio settings.
