Hello Ams97, 


Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Bose Community! 


I am so sorry you are having this issue. As this is a physical pain issue, the best option here would be to reach out to your local customer support center and talk this through with them. You can do this by clicking this link here, selecting your region, scrolling to the bottom of the page, and selecting contact us.


I am sorry we cannot help more via the forums.  


my wife just get from her work a nc700 (with firmware 1.3.1, and I told her to stick to it), and she tells she got headache.


I tried it, and indeed, within minutes, I also got headache.

I had never figured out this with the others NC700 I tried (regardless of other problems).


Does anybody also have this issue and is there a workaround (except sending back)
