Bose’s QuietComfort, better known as “QC”, headphoens are often considered to have one of the best active noise cancellation technologies, at least when it comes to consumer audio accessories. This, however, applies mainly to its larger products or headphones that, at least, have enough space for the electronics needed to make the ANC work. That’s why Bose is so proud of its new QuietComfort headphones that, for the first time, they bring their popular quality control technology to a shape that is as big as a room.
Sure, there are many truly wireless stereo or TWS headphones these days that offer active noise cancellation, but there is definitely something to be said for when one with Bose’s QC brand hits the market. Even more interesting, however, is the promise that it is loaded with almost the same ANC features that you would find on larger headphones.
Using a dedicated chip and algorithms, Bose QC headsets employ multiple microphones to measure and eliminate any remaining noise that has not been cut off by the StayHear Max ends of the buttons. In addition to a simple on / off button, however, the buttons offer 11 levels of noise control, allowing users to block the entire world or allow critical ambient noise to enter. All in tiny buttons that have 6 hours of battery life plus an additional 12 hours of their charging case.
Bose is also announcing an update to its sports headphones, revamped with new drivers for better audio output. Using StayHear Max tips, Bose promises that these buttons will stick to your ears, no matter how intense your workout is. Sports headphones last up to 5 hours on a full charge and another 10 hours with the case.
Available in Triple Black and Soapstone, Bose QuietComfort headphones will cost $ 279. Bose Sport headphones, on the other hand, will cost $ 179 and will come in Triple Black, Baltic Blue and Glacier White. Both are available for pre-order now, with shipping scheduled for September 29.
