  • You can charge your Bose headphones by connecting their USB cable from the headphones to a power source like a computer, wall charger, or power bank.

All wireless Bose headphones have a few things in common, like an integrated Lithium-ion battery and the need to stay charged. A Bose with a dead battery might still play if you plug it in with a physical AUX cable, but it won't be able to connect to Bluetooth, and its noise cancelling features won't work.

Whether you own Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II, QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones II, or even QuietControl 30 Wireless Headphones, they're all charged in the same way.

How to charge Bose headphones

1. Find the USB port on your headphones, usually on the right earcup (on neckband-style headphones, it'll be on the right side of the neckband). It will be a Micro USB connector for most headphones, though the new Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 use USB-C.

3. Plug the other end into a computer that's turned on, a USB power bank, or a USB wall charger.

4. Let the headphones charge until the power light on the headphones glows a steady color. It generally takes about two and a half hours to charge fully depleted headphones.

A few Bose models have quick-charge capability. The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, for example, will give you 3.5 hours of power after just a 15-minute charge.
