comment
" ...  Now for the annoyances: The on/off, Bluetooth, and volume up+ and down- buttons are harder to press than on the original. ... The thing that bugs me the most is that they are VERY poorly marked--the icons are pale and almost impossible to see, so you have to look hard at them when you want to adjust something, until you know their placement and can do it by memory!  ...  "
comment
" ...  You have to press and hold to turn the volume up or down. ... UPDATE: After having it for a few days, when you push on the volume up/down button, there is an indicator light that blinks ONCE for each level of increase/decrease of sound.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Hold power button no use. ... Press and hold power button ---> NOPE. ... Just the unit decided to die (completely non-responsive to power button) NO LIGHTS when connected to power. ... After pressing the Lazarus (3 dots) button then it came back to live. ... The power button should control power. ... There is something clearly missing from the user interface people. ... Hopefully the Lazarus button fixes most of the issues with this unit. ... Bose should consider making the power button into Lazarus button given that it is a software thing that can be fixed with a program.  ...  "
