Are you kidding! This is ridiculous. My old one, you simply opened , slipped in a new AA and off you went. If this is the case with the battery on the new headphones, I may return them.

You must desolder it. There is now a partial teardown guide that includes how to access the battery. Bose QuietComfort 35 PARTIAL Teardown

I’m not sure what type of battery to replace it with though.

I found a battery.

It’s the wrong shape, but I made a small hole for the wires in the side of the battery compartment, and I hotglued it just outside the compartment.

Unfortunately the battery light still stays on even when the headset is off.

I think there must be something in the firmware which turns on when a battery reaches end of life, and I don’t know how to reset that despite installing the new battery.

However, the headset turns on now and seems to charge correctly.

I’m going to see if I can reset the firmware somehow.

There doesn't seem to be any way to solve the battery light issue. If anyone works out a fix please post. I'll just live with it for now, it's not that big a deal.


Turns out they drain a significant amount of power in this mode.
