Amazingly Buggy Firmware which makes good sound useless!
Reviewed in India on 1 October 2018
Bought this device as I always wanted to buy Bose speakers. Speaker sound definitely justifies the brand.
However, the firmware will surely ruin it all. It's one of the most buggy software I have ever used.
In last year I have seen all these issues almost every month -
1) The speaker suddenly stops powering on. No matter what you do (including fw reset as specified on support), it will just not start. And then after a few days, it starts working like magic. Seen this trice in last one year.
2) Sometimes after (1), it powers on somehow but does not connect to any device.
3) Now the recent update has bought most amazing feature. The device doesn't turn off. Pressing any key (including power) results into device clearing it's bluetooth device list and then keeps saying 'Ready To Connect'. It has not powered off for last two days :-D
On top of this, support website is pure joke. Didn't even receive acknowledgement for the issue after posting it.
I always wanted to have Bose speaker and had their home theatre on my wishlist. But now I am no sure. If they can not write bug-free firmware for such a small speaker, home theatre is too tough job for them.
