Bose wireless headphones without a charging case are typically over-ear headphones instead of in-ear. Therefore, you will require a cable that they have provided to connect it to power.

  1. Locate the USB port on your Bose wireless headphones. For most Bose headphones, it will be a Micro USB opening that resembles a small trapezoid. If your Bose headphones have a USB-C port instead, the port will resemble a rectangle with rounded corners.
  2. Plug the small end of the cable into the headphones. The provided cable should fit seamlessly into the USB port. If you are having trouble connecting the two, try rotating the USB end to align with the port.
  3. Plug the larger end into a power source. The larger end of the cable is a USB type A. It is larger than the Micro USB or USB-C and has a defined rectangular shape. You can plug it into your computer, laptop, USB wall charger, or a power bank. Your options are almost endless.
  4. Leave the headphones to charge. A full charge will take up to 3 hours, whereas a 15-minute charge will suffice for approximately 2 hours of usage. Once your Bose wireless headphones are fully charged, the indicator should glow a steady green color.

Bose charging cases allow you to charge your earbuds wirelessly up to 2 times before charging the case itself. They are included in the package when you buy your earbuds; there is no extra purchase required.

If your charging case is not out-of-battery, you can charge your earbuds just by placing them in your case.

  1. Identify the left and right earbuds. The earbuds will not charge if you place the left earbud to the right charging slot or vice versa.
  2. Align the charging pins, respectively. The charging pins (on each earbud) are clear indicators of how to place your earbuds into the case.
  3. Place the earbuds into the charging slot. If the charging pins are aligned, and if the earbuds are input correctly, they should magnetically snap into place.
  4. Leave the earbuds to charge. A full charge will take up to 2 hours. Once fully charged, your earbuds will last for up to 5 hours.

In instances where both your charging case and earbuds are out-of-battery, you can charge both simultaneously by placing your earbuds in the charging case (steps above), then follow the instructions below. You will still need a cable to connect your charging case to a power source.

  1. Locate the USB port on your Bose charging case. It will be a Micro USB opening that resembles a small trapezoid.
  2. Plug the small end of the cable into the charging case. If you are having trouble connecting the two, try rotating the USB end to align with the port.
  3. Plug the larger end into a power source. The larger end of the cable is a USB type A. It is larger than the Micro USB or USB-C and has a defined rectangular shape. You can plug it into your computer, laptop, USB wall charger, or a power bank. Your options are almost endless.
  4. Leave the charging case to charge. Once your case is charged fully, every light indicator should glow a steady white color. It should take up to 2 hours. If you are simultaneously charging your earbud, the charging time will increase.

The indicator light color and scale may vary for each model of charging case. Once the case is fully charged, every indicator light will usually light up green or white. For example, with the charging case of the SoundSport Free wireless headphones, if one out of five indicators is lit up, the charging case is on a low battery. If all five are lit up, you can disconnect the case from the power source.

No matter what your Bose wireless headphone model is, hopefully, this tutorial on how to charge Bose wireless headphones served as a comprehensive guide to help you operate your device.
