Bose Unveils Noise Cancelling Headphones
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have 11 levels of noise cancellation.

(CCM) — Bose has taken the wraps off new noise cancelling headphones which replace its hugely popular QuietComfort 35 product.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 sport a completely new design compared to the QuietComfort cans, and inside they offer 11 levels of noise cancellation to minimize outside noise distractions to varying degrees. There is also a button-activated Conversation Mode which pauses music and turns off noise cancellation altogether, allowing the wearer to interact with other people – for example to order a cup of coffee.

The headphones also pack a four microphone system which the company says will pick up and isolate the wearer's voice while cancelling the noise nearby, enabling them to make clear voice calls even in noisy environments.

Another button on the right ear cup activates the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, and there are also touch controls for managing music, volume, and phone calls.

Finally, the headphones also have motion sensors embedded in them which can detect head orientation and body movement. This is use by Bose AR (augmented reality) enhanced apps to provide audio input based on where the wearer is and what they are doing, the company says.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are available for pre-order now, priced at $399.95.
