Bose has launched two new wireless
noise cancelling headphones, the QuietComfort 35 around-ear
headphones and the QuietControl 30 in-ear headphones.
While the QC35 works in a similar way to
Bose’s wired QuietComfort headphones, the QC30 adds something new
- a feature that puts noise control in your hands, letting you
adjust how much surrounding sound you block out or let in.
The QC35 is already on sale for a RRP of US
$349.95, while the QC30 will be available beginning September 2016 for
Both the QC35 and QC30
include NFC for touch-to-pair convenience, intuitive
controls for music and calls, voice prompts for key information
including setup, caller ID and battery life, and the free Bose
Connect app for even more functionality.
The QuietComfort 35 headphones are available in
black and silver while
the QuietControl 30 headphones will be in black.
StayHear+ tips for the QC30 are included in three
sizes: small, medium and large.
microphones inside and outside the earcups, the QC35 senses,
measures and sends unwanted sounds to two proprietary digital
electronic chips -- one for each ear -- which respond with a
precise, equal and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a
millisecond. In an instant, the rumble of a subway car, plane
engine, or the commotion from rush hour all but disappear.
The QC35 has up to 20
hours of battery life from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery,
lasting longer than a flight from New York to Hong Kong. Simple
buttons are on the right earcup: on/off, music volume, play/pause,
and answer/end calls.
The QC30 headphones feature tiny earbuds that integrate a
total of six microphones, and a sleek neckband that houses the
rest of the advanced electronics system for take-anywhere
awareness on a busy sidewalk, to complete isolation for work, to
taking a call from home in a crowded cafe -- the QC30 is designed
to let owners
choose what they hear.
Turn the noise cancellation up or down, not
on or off, and it adapts to the level you set without changing
your music volume.
The QC30 has up to 10 hours of battery life from a
rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Simple buttons are on an in-line
remote: music volume, play/pause, answer/end calls, and noise
