The new lineup features Bose's leading noise-cancelling technology and promises extended battery life.
(CCM) — On Monday, audio equipment manufacturer Bose unveiled its latest line of noise-canceling headphones with one new, noticeable feature: wireless technology. The lineup includes two additions to the brand’s "Quiet" collection, including the QuietComfort 35 around-ear headphones, and the QuietControl 30 in-ear neckbuds. Both models boast the latest in Bose's noise-cancelling technology, with added breakthrough features that put noise control into the user's hands. Also unveiled were two all-new SoundSport headphones, which are designed to accommodate even the most vigorous levels of training. With the promise to "make wireless training better," the water and sweat-resistant SoundSport and SoundSport Pulse earbuds feature a soft, flexible silicone that ensures security and comfort during exercise. The SoundSport Pulse headphones also feature a built-in heart monitor and fitness app compatibility, enabling athletes to monitor and optimize performance without losing focus. All products in Bose's new lineup feature NFC technology, intuitive controls for music and calls, voice prompts, extended battery life, and compatibility with Bose's Connect app.
Until now, Bose has been noticeably absent from the wireless sector, focusing instead on improving and perfecting its famed noise-cancelling technology. The company now joins the competitive ranks of companies such as Apple, Harman, LG, and Sony, whose offerings have already built a strong reputation in the market. The QuietComfort 35 and SoundSport headphones were released on June 5, and are priced at $349.95 and $199.95, respectively. The QC30 and SoundSport Pulse models will release in September at price points of $299.95 and $199.95.
