Bose Worst purchase I’ve made

Bought a nose 900 soundbar. I’ve had problems from the start. Sound keeps going on and off. Talked to customer service told me it was defective. I had just bought it and they offered to fix it. I’ve always had respect for Bose . Considers them to be a solid company. But they should stand by there product. It was sold defective. It should be replaced. I’ll never purchase from them again. I really despise when companies take advantage of there customers

Recommendation: No bose for you

Bose Mixed Feelings About Bose Corporation

As I delve into the reviews of Bose Corporation, I find a mix of opinions that paint a varied picture of the brand. While some customers praise the high-quality sound and comfort of Bose products, others express frustration with issues like poor customer service, difficulties with returns, and product malfunctions. It seems that Bose's reputation is a double-edged sword, with both loyal fans and disappointed customers sharing their experiences. If you're considering Bose, it might be wise to weigh these contrasting viewpoints before making a decision.

Bose If you want to hear something

You can just about pick anyone of their surround systems. But get to the BIG DAWG and you feel bullets flying passed your ears and get rattled to the Bones. Oh then Turn it up!

Bose The best

The original if you ask me, very reliable, reasonably priced, good looking, non bassy headphones that actually sound amazing. I would say like how you hear with the human ear, it's that crisp.

Bose Quality beyond perfection

I bought Bose Qc25, and I'm in love with them. Design, quality, comfort, you name it, it's so perfect. The most impressive Thing to me was noise canceling, you just turn it on and enjoy. Really impressed, can't wait for a new release (35 i know, I want newer one)

Bose One of the easiest sites I use

I am an avid Bose customer and have made several purchases with them. The site is extremely intuitive and the ability to interact with customer service in real time online is excellent. I've made a few returns for various reasons and have been able to get through the process online with no hassle. They do everything they can for you with the exception of driving your return item to the UPS store for you. They are fantastic.

Bose Grab yourself a refurbished Bose headphone

I've been wanting to get headphones for a while now but didnt because I felt like they were too pricy for me. But when my earbuds broke I knew it was time...

I bought this one (linked below) for $249 refurbished rather than full price of $379 because it's basically the same thing https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/outlet/noise-cancelling-headphones-700-fr.html#v=noise_cancelling_headphones_700_fr_black

If you want to see comparison between the famous Sony XM4's and these Bose 700s check out these tiktoks I made :) or you can search up "justjoanne bose"

Bose The customer service is terrible

The customer service is terrible. When purchasing a warranty, make sure to read the refund policy. Also, be aware that the product and water *** will come in two separate payments, so double-check this. The equipment is not worth the money, as other companies offer similar products with different names. If you decide to buy from Bose, do thorough research beforehand. I purchased the Bose portable smart speaker and was not satisfied with it. Alexa would not respond to my voice unless I interacted with the device first. Additionally, it would automatically stop playing after 2 hours unless I interacted with it, which was very annoying.

I bought a Bose 700 soundbar home system with base module and surround sound speakers. I was under the impression that I was purchasing a good quality system with a no-hassle warranty and customer support. After 3 years with this product, I now realize this is the most regretful I've ever felt about purchasing a product. First of the remote control. It stained my white top grain leather sofas. I had to put away and find an alternative remote. Secondly, the base module which is suppose to work remotely/wirelessly never worked without the annoying crackling that so many have complained about. Even when I have the speaker 1 foot away the crackling happens. The issue that really got me to write this review is the dismal customer support I received when calling about the soundbar showing as "not connected" in the app. This issue has come up every few months and every few months I'd have to spend an hour or more trying to resolve it. On this last instance, the tech had me power off my router even after I insisted that I did not want to do that because of any issues that might arise from disconnecting my devices. Besides, what kind of product reset requires a router to be turned off? That's just ridiculous and nonsensical! I would expect that from a product of an unknown manufacturer or something off the black market but not from a well-known corporation! It's laughable. Well after I powered off the router and reset the soundbar with the remote (that's another nonsensical issue: why make a product that requires another product to reset it? Foolish design.) I powered the router back on and the wifi was connecting with no internet. When I told the rep he said he was going to talk to someone to try to resolve the issue. He had me on hold for over 15 minutes and then just hung up. He never came back on and he never dialed me back. Needless to say, I will never EVER buy another Bose product again.

I bought The Ato Frames in January *** for a replacement on May 3rd. May 12th i received an email saying they received my item and will be sending the replacements within 3-5 days and I will receive an email confirmation with confirmation number. Its now June 21,2022 and I still havent received an email or the product. Each time I speak to a representative (3 times) they say they will put in a request to find out whats going on and that I will hear back in 24hours. Im currently on hold with Bose as they are looking up my order once again. They just got on the line and said they sent the replacement to me on May 10th, which is not possible because they didnt receive my item at the service department until May 12th. Now they are going to reprocess the order for me but if I dont receive it again, this is a one time courtesy and the next time I will have to pay! It still shows On my account online that its processing, NOT SHIPPED! They never sent any kind of confirmation email or tracking Information saying it was shipped, so they did NOT ship it! If they make the same mistake this time and dont actually ship it or change the status of my online account and I DONT RECEIVE my item, I will have to pay for new ones. They still have the broken item at their warehouse, and I have nothing. Terrible customer service. NOT pleased.

Bose I recently had an experience with my order from last month that has significantly changed my opinion of the company

I recently had an experience with my order from last month that has significantly changed my opinion of the company. On their website, they had a promotion where you could send in an older pair of Bose quiet comfort headphones in exchange for a big discount on their QC45s. The price went down from nearly $300 to $200. I've had my older pair since around 2015 and I've had to replace the ear pads twice. Overall, I've spent about $60 on maintenance over the past 8 years. They have worked really well for me! So, I thought to myself, "Yes, I can buy a new pair at 2/3 of the original price." The idea of having headphones that could last me another 8 years was very appealing.

Today, I called customer service to understand why the status of my order was showing as "Waiting for Payment - please contact ***" when A) I had already paid for the new headphones upfront and B) I had already sent in the older headphones (they should have been received on 3/20/23). Since the robot chat support was not helpful, I called customer service for clarification. My first call was going well until I got disconnected while on hold. After waiting for two minutes for a callback, I called the main number again and finally received that call back. I hung up on the call I was on and answered the incoming call, but it hung up on me after two seconds. Then I called again, this time going through the phone menu and selecting the right option. They offered a callback service, which I accepted. They called me, but the call ended before I could respond or before the second ring. They called again, and this time I managed to answer, but they hung up. During my final call, I asked the representative not to put me on hold. She was fantastic and was able to resolve my issue. I am still waiting for confirmation that my new pair will be shipped. Honestly, it feels like the company took my money, took my old headphones, and now I am left without both money and headphones. I will update once I receive information about the new set.

Paid for services not rendered and money ($132.99) was not refunded. Sent *** Changer to Bose Corporation for repair. System was returned in the same condition and with no mention at that time, that it was not repairable. After I returned it to them a second time, I received this message:We regret to inform you that the product (Multi-Disc Changer) youve sent us for repair is not serviceable. As time goes on it has become increasingly more difficult to procure parts to repair certain products that were produced many years ago.We would like to inform you that we will return your product back to you in its current condition.Ive requested refund credit after being advised the system is not serviceable, but Im being told it was serviced, and I am sorry but the radio got repaired and that being reason amount can not be refunded.

BOSE HQ Consumer Support *** Dear Sir or MadameAugust 27/2021 We are incredibly disappointed in your company.Recently, we bought one of your BOSE HOME SPEAKER 300. It came with NO instructions, Not even how to turn it on.I contacted your chat support waited more than 25 minutes and spent over 35 minutes with one of your people. He would not even mail me a booklet with the details of how to set up and use the speaker.He told me he did not have the right. I said: I give you the right. However, one would think the request is enough. He then told me it was illegal to mail me the booklet. I also asked him to let me talk with his supervisors. He would not and when I insisted, he said he would have them call me later.Never heard anything and still have no instructions.What can I do to have help?Sincerely.*** Since this later went out and getting NO response I have tried to contact Consumer Reports who recommended this speaker and am in the process of reaching out to the BBB and other possible outlets.

I've always been a large fan of Bose products but today my headphones (Noise Cancelling Headphones 700) which are not cheap, have fully bricked on me. Instead of taking my word for it, they demand your serial number and run you through a set of steps to ensure you're not doing anything wrong. That part I take no issue with. The fact that they can't do anything at all if you can't access the serial number is a tad annoying as they're requesting I send them back before I can get a replacement regardless, so don't you think they would be able to secure my serial number upon receipt of the headphones? I digress. The serial number on these newer headphones are a little more difficult to find than I'd like to admit. Perhaps this is user error, I'll own up to that. Now we're here and I'm without the headphones required for my workday, presumably because they pushed a newer firmware and bricked my device? Not sure about this. Adding insult to injury it seems that they're aware of the problem and refuse to ship me headphones in advance with the caveat that they would charge me if I didn't fulfill my end of the bargain. This would be no problem to me. Additionally, now here I am looking to make a review on their website for the product that I've purchased and had a bad experience with, and there is nowhere to do so. This is very disheartening as I'd like people to know that this is a problem that they're aware of before they buy these headphones, as I would've liked to know. I'm aware that Bose isn't a accredited by the Better Business Bureau, but please feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call if you'd like to discuss.

I had an issue with my Bose QC earbuds. And they replaced them under warranty. Took a couple weeks. But I was astonished at the customer service they provided I havent had a company go above and beyond like that before. It was a bit hard to chat with the representative over chat (long response times) but with patience it didnt become an issue they were helpful and I got all the info I needed. No matter how long it took they still did respond back each time. Apple also had a chat that shows up in imessage when you talk to them thought it was cool. I also chose their earbuds because they had a sale for Black Friday. I had saved some money and got to choose between beats, Bose, *** and Jaybird (previously my favorite). I ended up choosing Bose because it had the over all best sound quality, balanced clear and honestly the best it gets for in ear earbuds. Like I said I was even more impressed, when they kept their word and stayed true to the warranty. I havent been disappointed with a Bose product so far. And it seems like this company cares. Ive seen some bad reviews but if you put in the time and do the work on your end. Compared to other companies there doing a pretty good job overall.

Due to Bose's lack of ethics with regard to the *** war/invasion of ***, I will no longer be purchasing products from Bose. If you would like to maintain my business, I hope that you will sanction *** and/or withdraw or suspend all business practices with ***. Until then I will not purchase Bose products.

I have never really been a Bose person through the years but have heard countless stories about their quality. When I work with other companies that charge a premium for their product they have taken good care of me whenever I have issues or the product breaks. This is not the case with Bose. You pay for a premium product to get sub-par service at best. This is the service I would expect on a $29 pair of headphones but not a several hundred dollar pair. I have owned the Bose SoundSport headphones which sound great but fell apart only after a year and a half. The customer service for those was dismal, just threw them away. Giving them another chance I purchased the QuietComfort ear buds to have the case latch break after a couple months. Every support option they give you on the website is for setup and software issues but nothing on breakage or poor quality. They relentlessly try and steer you through this pointless support model. When you do have to talk to someone, good luck. SMS is your best option. They are willing to exchange them but only after I mail mine back first; that lack of trust puts me without my ear buds for weeks. Sadly the product is great sounding and has nice functionality but I think I will have to settle for something lesser non-Bose on my next purchase.

I bought a pair of Bose Sound sport free, used twice, put them away in original packaging. Bought a new iPad, got them out after one year. The case charges but no power to the earbuds. I see this problem is ongoing with many customers. I think it is deplorable that they will exchange them for a $119 charge when they had been used twice. They dont sell these since 2020, most likely because of the problems with the product. BBB wont take a complaint because its been a year since purchase, but I want other consumers to be aware.

My Bose sport free buds do not hold a charge long enough for me to even use them in the gym! They worked great and I loved them for about 3 months until the gym's closed to the pandemic...now when fully charged they will turn off dead after about an hour and a half. I tried to get them to warranty them and they gave me an auto generated they aren't warrantied but you can purchase a new pair for $119...why would I do that? I have bought tons of Bose products and always thought I would. But these ear buds and the lack of customer service and Bose standing behind them when clearly there is a manufacturer defect has made me think I will never buy them again. Side note, I have a pair of beats ear buds that are a year and a half older then the Bose...were completely dead for over a year never used...I charged them up and they still hold charge for a month plus of 2 hours a day 6 days a week. Come on Bose be better.

Bose I bought a Bose QuietComfort 35 Headphone II from Bose on October 20, 2019 for a total of $373.13 through a third-party

I bought a Bose QuietComfort 35 Headphone II from Bose on October 20, 2019 for a total of $373.13 through a third-party service that allows customers to pay for products over time. The original product I purchased was defective because the noise cancelling feature was not working. It worked for about 3 weeks, and after contacting support, it was decided that I should return the product since it was still under warranty. I placed the return order on May 11th, 2019. The reason it took so long is that I wasn't using the headphones and was unaware that the issue would persist. I received the replacement during the week of May 25th. After using the product for about a month, I noticed that it also had an issue with the noise cancelling function. I went online to try and resolve the issue myself, but I found that many people had a similar problem. Since I couldn't fix it, I called customer support again. They asked me to follow several steps to try and resolve the issue, including downloading their software and testing different parts of the headphones, but nothing worked. I want to mention that sound quality is Bose's main selling point and the reason for the high price of their products. I told them that I either needed another working product or a refund. The person on the phone suggested a refund, and I agreed. A week passed and when I didn't receive a confirmation email, I called again, only to be told that I couldn't get a refund because the deadline had passed. That's fine, as I understand there is a return policy, but it is unacceptable for the Bose team to give me incorrect information. I asked to speak with a manager, and he told me that due to my situation, he would allow me to return the product for a refund. After receiving a return slip, I shipped the package on June 24th, and it was delivered on June 30th, 2020 at 10:22 am. On July 13th, I called the third-party service to check if the refund had been processed since I had already paid off the bill. They informed me that they had not received anything from Bose, so they decided to open an investigation. I called Bose on July 16th, and they confirmed that they had received the package on July 7th. I assumed that they were processing the return payment, but the person on the phone didn't explicitly say this. I told them that I would call the third-party service to ensure that the issue seemed to be resolved. On July 22nd, I called the third-party service again, and they informed me that the status was the same. They said that the return funds should come from Bose, and once they received the funds, they would refund me the full amount within 3-5 business days. However, they also mentioned that they had an active investigation until August 10th to understand why Bose had not processed the return. I expressed my frustration as I had neither received the product nor the refund. So, I called Bose again and was put on hold for over an hour. Finally, a representative named *** told me that he would process the return to my account in 10 days, even though I told him the refund should go to the third-party service. When I asked why Bose didn't process the return on July 7th when I spoke with the representative on that date, he couldn't give me a clear answer. I also asked if I could receive an email confirmation, and he said he would send it in 10 days. This is unacceptable. I want my money to be refunded. I have never experienced such a long delay in processing a refund once the item was received, and I don't have confidence that it will be refunded based solely on someone's word over the phone. If the company had been transparent, the representative from July 7th would have simply told me when they were going to process my return, as she understood that was the reason for my call. Instead, she didn't say anything, and I assumed that the issue would be resolved on the third-party service's end. If there is no resolution, I will also contact my bank and report Bose for fraud. But at this point, I just want the refund as promised by the company.

My soundbar often makes an extremely loud noisy sound when turned on, which scares my wife and pets. My wife is pregnant (in her third trimester) but now feeling extreme pain by being scared of this sound. This soundbar issue *** cause extreme consequences including miscarriage if this issue is not solved.I contacted Bose customer service multiple times, but this issue still exists, and they kept ignoring us.Since this issue is getting escalated to potential miscarriage on my wife, I am requesting an immediate resolution from the merchant - refund/exchange/store credit. I already contacted them many times, but the issue still exists today.

I have purchased two sets of Bose ear buds and neither of them work. Instead of offering to fix the headphones the company instead attempted to just talk me into buying another pair at good will discount. Its terrible customer service and the headphones from the most recent purchased should just be repaired or exchanged without me having to cough up another 200 dollars. I have already invested over 600 in Bose headphones and neither of them work properly.

Bose I recently made a purchase on the Bose website for replacement headphone pads

I recently made a purchase on the Bose website for replacement headphone pads. On the product page, there were reviews listed. After receiving my product, I tried to leave my own review by linking my purchase to an account with the same email address. However, I couldn't find a link to leave a review, so I contacted customer service through the online chat.

The person who assisted me provided incorrect information multiple times. I asked for a link or guidance on where to leave a review, and initially, they falsely claimed it would be on the checkout page in my cart. When I pointed out that it wasn't there, they tried to dismiss me by saying it was a website malfunction and that they would pass it along to the tech team, which was also untrue. They then sent me a link to a customer service survey, claiming it was the review page I was looking for, but it wasn't. Despite repeatedly asking for a supervisor, my requests were ignored.

Eventually, they provided me with an email address, assuring me that it would link my review to the website. However, this information was also false. I emailed the address to review the product, but the customer support team responded by suggesting that I buy new products instead. Finally, they gave me phone numbers for the customer service center as a solution.

In the meantime, I found some interesting information online. I discovered that Bose had previously stated in their forums that they send an email asking for a review once the product is received. However, I never received such an email, and I mentioned this in my email to the customer service review address provided in the chat. I also came across posts claiming that Bose has deleted negative reviews from customers about their products.

While going through the reviews on the product page, I noticed that Bose has misrepresented the nature of the reviews. The majority of the reviews are negative with one-star ratings, but they highlight a three-star review as their "most critical review," which is not accurate. Additionally, I found that the installation video for the product does not show anyone successfully installing it. The video stops before the difficult part of installing the last half of the headphone pad, and the comments for the video have been disabled. It's not surprising, as this product has been on the market for a while, and Bose is aware of its serious issues.

After a week, I received an email response to my request for a review link. The email stated that they have learned that email isn't the most efficient method of communication and provided options for purchasing, checking order status and returns, and technical support. They also mentioned registering products for updates and accessing online resources for questions or service orders. They provided contact information and hours of operation on the "Contact Us" page of the Bose website.

Sincerely,
Bose Customer Service

Hi, Upon accessing the Bose website for refurbished products, the Soprano and tenor shades were listed as $99. I wanted to purchase a few pairs. However, when you click the link, which indicates their $99 cost, the price changes to $169. Its misleading . When speaking with an agent she advise that *** could change the price without notice, as per their policy. While "changed" pricing is in marketing policy which is contradictory to marketing laws, the shades were and are still being marketed as $99. *** would not honor the advertised price.

Hello, I bought Bose surround sound speakers 700 and they were smaller than I thought so I returned them with the pre paid label Bose provided me with (tracking number: 1Z41773E9192976550). *** website states refund would take 5-7 business days after received. The *** tracking says the items were delivered on March 3rd. I waited 2 weeks and still no refund so I contacted *** and they said wait 48 more business hours as this has been escalated. I receive no email. I call back after the 48 hours and now they tell me I must wait 4 weeks from returned date since I paid with PayPal. No where on their website does it say PayPal refunds take additional time or anything. I contact *** again 4 weeks later and they now say they will be refunding me via check and it will come in 1-2 weeks because the amount is too high? It was a 700$ purchase and again this is said no where on their website. If this was said anywhere I would have just paid with my credit card. I have tore my ACL and do not want a cheque refund as i cannot deposit this check. I want *** to either change the name on the cheque so my husband can deposit it or I want them to refund me back via PayPal.

Bose offers a 90 day risk free guarantee. I returned the product well withing the 30 day time frame. I have confirmed with them twice that they have received the product. They keep saying it has been referred to another department. They received the product on January 30, 2023. It is already April 4th. I have contacted them numerous times with the same result. It is being handled by our finance department. I did not damage the product. I rarely used it. I just want my money refunded for the product. My most recent reference number is N057064928

Is Bose Legit?

Bose earns a trustworthiness rating of 91%

Highly recommended, but caution will not hurt.

Our conclusion: After a detailed review, ComplaintsBoard finds Bose to be a trustworthy company. Although there's a 0% resolution rate for customer complaints, which deserves attention, Bose is known for their high standards and safety. If you're thinking about dealing with Bose, it's wise to check how they handle complaints.

We found clear and detailed contact information for Bose. The company provides a physical address, 43 phone numbers, and 2 emails, as well as 5 social media accounts. This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

Bose has received 11 positive reviews on our site. This is a good sign and indicates a safe and reliable experience for customers who choose to work with the company.

Bose.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

Bose.com you are considering visiting, which is associated with Bose, is very old. Longevity often suggests that a website has consistently provided valuable content, products, or services over the years and has maintained a stable user base and a sustained online presence. This could be an indication of a very positive reputation.

Bose as a website that uses an external review system. While this can provide valuable feedback and insights, it's important to carefully evaluate the source of the reviews and take them with a grain of salt.

Bose website is deemed to be popular and indicating that it receives a high volume of traffic. It is important to be cautious when using a highly trafficked website, as it may be a target for cybercriminals looking to exploit vulnerabilities or steal personal information.

Bose.com appears to have online shopping features, it's important to know that the platform supports an extensive range of payment methods, making it convenient and easy to complete your transaction. The payment procedure on the website is also relatively simple and straightforward, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free experience for buyers.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While Bose has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 0% of 31 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • Bose protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.
  • We conducted a search on social media and found several negative reviews related to Bose. These reviews may indicate issues with the company's products, services, or customer support. It is important to thoroughly research the company and its offerings before making any purchases to avoid any potential risks.

Bose Warranty return of speaker

I sent in a base module in response to the recall notice. I received the module back as promised. However, I also received someone else's by mistake.

I have tried on several occasions to get a return shipping label in order to send it back. Spent an inordinate amount of time chatting or texting and getting nowhere. This is my last attempt to get the unit returned. Please send a shipping label. I have a container already. The serial no of the unit in question is:023933991970069A.

Please call or text with info.

Bose BOSE QC ll Earbuds

Please Help! I purchased the BOSE QC ll Earbuds because of the noise canceling technology and I have many BOSE product of which I am well pleased with. However, the BOSE QC ll earbuds have been a nightmare! Whenever I workout, I get loud static in the left earbud. I have had them replaced 5 times! and each time, there is static in the left earbud. I've tried calling customer service over a dozen times to speak with a supervisor or a stateside operator and each time, the person disconnects the call. I do not know what to do from here. So frustrated at this process and the equipment!

Desired outcome: I would truly appreciate (1) talking to a supervisor and (2) receiving a replacement that will actually work.

Bose Lensabl prescription sunglasses

In December 2022 I ordered a pair of Bose sunglasses with prescription lenses from the Bose website. In order to complete the prescription lense portion I was redirected to the Lensabl site where I was required to input my eye glass prescription including a picture of my face so that they could calculate pupil distance - lots of technical jargon. I completed their form and submitted it thinking that I would get lenses as per my full prescription. When I received my lenses I immediately realized that they were not as per my full prescription and I could not read my phone or a book in my hand. I contacted Lensabl immediately and they asked if I preferred distance or reading ability and I could have one or the other but not both. I responded that I needed reading glasses. They said they gave me distance glasses and if I wanted readers I would have to buy new lenses from them (at 30% off). I have also contacted Bose and they refuse to deal with the issue saying I have to deal with Lensabl.

I was never provided the product I wanted. Bose redirected me to Lensabl and will not assume any responsibility for their quality. Lensabl did not provide a lense that meets my needs and now wants more money in order to make new lenses. This is unacceptable.

Desired outcome: Provide a reader lense at 2.25 strength as is required at no extra cost to me

Bose Connect +

This app forgets paired speakers and tries to attach to unpowered speakers. Does not support multiple speakers beyond two. This is short-sighted. Once speakers are connected, why do I have to continue struggling to get the 2 speakers I had connected to re-connect when the power is turned back on. Does Bose care anything about what its customers want? I don't even think they know how to listen to suggestions.

Desired outcome: I should be able to connect as many speakers as I have available. The paired connections should be reloaded automatically. Each time the power is turned off, I have to go through the entire process, again.

Bose Customer service, follow up information to my phone calls

I am a long time user of Bose Lifestyle DVD surround sound home system as well as Bose Wave clock radio. In early April approx 4 weeks ago I called Bose to report problems occurring with the performance of my Wave Radio. Your service tech reviewed my model and serial number with attempting to correct the issues. It was determined that my radio could not be repaired due to its age of service. Your rep recommended a replacement and offered the Bose Wave IV at a quoted price of $350 + tax. I was very interested in making this final deal however, I requested to receive an email with the radio specs, a photo pic of the radio and the price quote of $350. Your rep agreed to this and registered the following file # [protected]. I was told that I would receive this within 24-48 hours timeframe. After 7 days or so I phoned for the second time and spoke to a gentlemen who told me that the email was sent onto me at [protected]@yahoo.com, however I never received it and had checked all spam and trash files to confirm non-received. He was not receptive in offering a second email transmission and told me to go on line look at the Wave IV. Not a very kind customer service rep in my opinion.
Last week I took the time to phone call the third time and I spoke to a young lady customer service rep who understood my concerns and problem and told me she would have a new email sent to me with the price quote and product pic and specs. This was on 4/27/21 and here we are today May 2nd and I have not received the email. It would appear to me one of two things have occurred at Bose Customer Service. The incompetent's of personnel to handle this request or maybe you just don't want me to purchase the Wave IV radio.

Please help me as I am a senior citizen and need help. This is not the first bose product I have purchased but will be my last. If this is the kind of customer service you give. Your employees get mad because I want answers and they say they don't have them. They tell me your process but after one month in a half they say you credit card has been processed but billing has to do their part. How hard is it to process a card and get the customer their product. The product is repaired in indiana and I live in kentucky but your customer service is in the philippines and they have no answers why I had to give my credit card different times. Still no customer satisfaction I expected better service from bose. Thanks for any help

Bose Unethical behaviour

Early November I connected my Bose lifestyle 650 system to my Samsung TV, I noticed after 20-25 mins my TV would shut down. I contacted Bose technical Department, and after describing my concern to the technician I was told the system cannot affect the TV because that was just an HDMI input. I then ask if the Bose sound bar can work with my system, without answering my question he told me they have a special with the sound bar. I return my complete lifestyle 650 system pay 1300.00. When I make the Payment they send me a shipping label. I send my system. After a couple of weeks I called Bose and ask when would my system be delivered. (sound bar, wireless rear speakers and sub woofer.) I was told they should be within a couple of days. After 2 weeks I called again and was told their warehouse does not have my stuff at this time. I called Bose second week in December and ask when would they have the stuff and don't know at this time, I then ask if they could sell me CD player at a discount price so I can have music for the Holidays but was denied. On January 8th I received an E mail that they can no longer fulfill my order N055832845 and my charges were dropped. I contacted Bose and requested they send back my system, I was told my defective system was destroyed, I reply according to your technical department its not defective, and why was I not inform before that the system was not in stock. On January 12 I received another Email stating Order N055832845 and they are billing me $ 1, 124.00 +99.75 tax total$ 1223.75. I contacted Bose and told the representative I'm not paying to get back my system because it was working it and your technical department told me so. My TV was eventually replaced by PC Richards because the TV itself was the problem. I did not keep dates for I never think it would end up like this. I purchased lots of stuff from Bose and never had any type of problem with them.

Desired outcome: i would like my system back ,they knew all along they did not have the items and lured me into the deal.

Bose bose wave 1 radio

My complaint is very simple and not complicated at all the directional book for this radio clearly states I can play my tuner or CD player with this specific radio. Nothing is malfunctioning and when the tuner is hooked up the radio doesn't have enough power to enjoy listening at volume 99 the music can be heard faintly. Since this is an older generation model I suspect Bose already knows of the problem and customer service tells me what I'm doing is not recommended even though the literature that came with radio clearly states I can.I feel Bose has misled the general public in this matter and I cannot seem to get any feedback due to a lack of care from bose Corp.

Bose bose wave touch tabletop radio/cd player

I purchased this product directly from Bose about 6 months ago, certainly far less than a year ago. A few days ago I was listening to a CD and it wouldn't eject. I followed online instructions and then the radio went completely dead. I contacted Bose and after three transfers spoke with a rep who told me he would email me a UPS shipping label so I could send the radio for repair. I told him my printer is not working and asked to be mailed a label. He told me he could not do so but I could take the boxed package to the store and I would be in the system and they would print the label. My store is unable to do this. I asked to be sent a shipping box and apparently Bose doesn't do this either. What kind of extremely expensive product is this? What kind of service is this? I now have a defective product I can't use until my printer is repaired. Outrageous!

Bose headphones

WRITING EMOTION + REAL FACTS ONLY FOR SUPPORT :

I had long been craving for :

The thing that i have bought on the seventh of this month
For which I was longed for a very vlong time

And besides this, your boss officials also knew very well.

I am writing for this because some times you are very deeply attached to some things

But here the issue is of two things...not the things specifically the two emotional factors one is my pet, my dog and another is my BOSE sound sport headphones ( those pics are attached )

I made my mind on sound sport aqua while shying away from qc 35 Because here I wanted to buy that product for myself according to my need and purpose only.

NEED & PURPOSE - THE HEADPHONES : ( what are my needs )

• HEALTH - I was losing weight for a long time And dedicatedly I wanted something to do to fit my body, Tried many times to encourage myself, AND To be good, it is important to have a good environment And when you start something new alone, you have to create your own environment with you itself and with your surrounding things ( so I have decided to buy it for my health )

• IELTS - I have been working for the past six years, When you are continuously working, and when the things came to my knowledge that the importance of your work is also in some other country so every human will try and I am trying too and Provided you have an Exemption Clearer and there is an speaking module that are to be clear first to reach over there
( so secondly have decided to buy it for my future perspective )

• EAGERNESS TOWARDS BOSE - This euphroria is not of today Whom I have been already confirmed at beginning If i ever have the headphones then they will be the bose only.

WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED WITH MY HEADPHONES :

• Did not even complete one day, When I started using it then suddenly an accident happened ..whom do I blame

Because that was happened between

MY PET (DOG) and MY HEADPHONES

• Phone comes from my office and I go out for a few moments
( from Where ! from my bedroom ) Because that day I was at my house

• It was not that he was tied or not...My dog ​​was well tied up...
And on the otherside... My headphones were at on the centre of the bed..When I came back to my room, seemed that the headphones were missing from the bed...I saw that my cherry had eaten it in naivety...

• I cried / Panicked seeing this scene, what would I do and the only things that comes in my mines and that was Whom to i speak ? Whom should I say ?

• Both were special to my heart and now one was destroyed !

I could not do anything even if I wanted to :

FIRST SUPPORT :

THEY OFFER ME BEGGING OF 25 % + HARASSMENT

- Mr. George This is the person who knows everything from the very first day...Even after knowing everything, they mislead about what they have done.

- He was the first person whom I told all the tales, He gave me a bluff and ridiculed my feelings by offering 25% And one day later when the bose officer Mr. Sahil present at the store tells me about it.

I am not angry at him but I am surprised that he knew my desperation and dedication towards product and all real facts about that...

MY REQUEST:

• Please replace it with new one :

1) It happened on the same day.
2) 24 hour did not even happened.
3) Could not use even one day.
4) My dog ​​(cherry) has no defects in it.
5) It was accidentally.
6) It was an accident.
7) I have written all that just because I have got a mental shock.
8) My hard earned money
9) Now I'm going to kneel in myself
10) My goal ( HEALTH + FUTURE IELTS + DESPERATION )

Please replace it's a humble request

For the sake of humanity
