Intermittent audio from product
If the sound played from your product cuts in and out, plays inconsistently or is choppy-sounding, try the following:
Clear your Bose product memory of previously-connected Bluetooth® devices.
Your Bose product remembers the last several devices it connected to so it can quickly reconnect to them. In case there is an issue with the device memory, clear it and then try to reconnect the device. For more info, see Clearing the product memory of paired Bluetooth® devices and Connecting a Bluetooth® device.
On the Bluetooth® device, remove all entries of your Bose product from the Bluetooth menu. Then, try connecting again.
In the Bluetooth menu of the Bluetooth device, you'll find a list of Bluetooth products that have been previously connected. Your Bose product might show up one or more times in the list (i.e. it might be listed a second time with "LE" in the name). Select each entry for your product and remove it by selecting Forget, Unpair, Delete or something similar. After, try connecting again. For more info, see Connecting a Bluetooth® device.
Try a different app.
If the issue only occurs with a particular app, it is likely related to the app or app settings.
Reset your product.
Much like rebooting a smartphone, your product might need to be reset on occasion to correct minor issues. For more info, see Resetting your product.
Reboot the connected device.
Electronics might need to be reset from time-to-time—much like rebooting a computer. Power off the device, then power it back on and try again.
Check for sources of wireless interference.
It's possible that interference from other wireless devices are affecting the wireless functionality of your product. Check for other wireless devices in the area of your product (i.e. another router, cordless phone, wireless printer, smart TV, etc.). To determine if a device might be interfering, try unplugging its power cord or disabling Wi-Fi on the device. If the issue is resolved when a particular device is removed, try placing that device farther away from your product, if possible. Additionally, if the device has a wireless channel setting, try a different channel.
Try disconnecting other nearby wireless devices that might interfere with Bluetooth® signal.
Some wireless devices can cause interference with a Bluetooth signal. If there are other wireless devices nearby (i.e., 2.4 GHz router or cordless phone, wireless speaker adapters, home security motion sensors, fluorescent lights, microwaves, etc.), disconnect one at a time and check if the issue improves. If so, consider relocating your product or the device.
