Using the buttons and touch controls

Your headphones include both touch control and physical buttons. Use touch control by swiping or tapping the touch surface of the headphones. With touch control, you can play or pause audio, skip forward or backwards, change the volume, and perform basic call functions. Buttons have default functionality such as noise cancellation levels and voice assistant, but can also be customized in the Bose app.

Using the controls on your headphones:

The touch surface is located on the front of the right earcup.

Media and volume controls

Play/Pause: Double-tap to play or pause audio Skip forward: Swipe forward to skip to the next track Skip back: Swipe backward to skip to the previous track Change the volume: Swipe up to increase, down to decrease

Call controls

Answer/End a call: Double-tap to answer or end a call Decline an incoming call: Tap and hold for 1 second Mute a call: While on a call, press and release the Voice Assistant button to mute the microphone on the headset. This will work for any type of call, including Internet calls, like Zoom, Teams, and others.

Keep voice prompts on to be alerted when the headset is muted. Muting the headset this way only mutes your headset microphone; it does not mute the microphone on the connected device, so the microphone icon on the device will not show it is muted.
