These are on Amazon Germany for €220 and the 700s are €280. Both good prices I think.

I think the 700s are a bit ugly but their spec seems great.

In short - do you need a vpn to shop on Amazon.de?

No VPN required! Ordered my Galaxy S9+ from Amazon.de 2 years ago with no issues.

I have tried a couple of different guides online without any success..

They work well for music but would rather have both music and mic on the one unit. From my research it has something to do with the Low energy bluetooth (LE) that the Bose QC35 uses which Windows struggle to connect with.

on MS teams, i have to use the surface mic to speak and the headphones to listen. if i try to use the headphones mic, i can't hear.

so much for the convenience of one headset for multiple devices across applications.
only found out about it yesterday, but Bose brought out a firmware fix (for the 700s anyway) in May that seems to have resolved most issues. I used headphones today for spotify, teams and zoom calls with no issues...

700 faulty

Bought Bose 700s a few days ago from Amazon.de

Special offer: €259 including postage.

But they only charged to 13 hours' usage (instead of 20), even with firmware upgrade. Checked the Bose chat - they all have that fault, according to 200+ complaints.

Returned them for a full refund.

I'll stick to my Sony WH1000XM3s - they don't look as nice, but sound better and last for 30+ hours on 1 charge.

The fault is only in the reporting as far as I have tested, I haven't noticed any drop in battery performance on the latest firmware at least. They're a fantastic set, and at that money a complete steal. I've had mine for a few months and would highly recommend them, the added equaliser is a big bonus.

didn't hear about the battery issue - haven't noticed any drop in battery before or after the fw update.

The issue is that the headphones report being 80% full after a full charge on the latest firmware(on mine and others I've read about). But it's a reporting issue, rather than an actual drop in battery life. I seem to be getting more than the advertised 20 hours consistently on mine anyway.
