Bose launches Quiet Comfort Earbuds Sport Earbuds and three new Frames

Adjustable Noise Control - A World-Volume Button at Your Fingertips The QC Earbuds come with 11 levels of noise control so you can choose how much of the world you let in or keep out. This means that unlike conventional earbuds, the bass on your favorite songs won't disappear or distort.

Thanks to a quartet of built-in microphones, the new QuietComfort earbuds will deliver the brand's signature sound no matter the content you're listening to, from playlists to podcasts to phone calls.

Bose has officially launched two new pairs of truly wireless earbuds - Bose QuietComfort Earbuds and Bose Sport Earbuds. They have a matte finish with metallic and gloss accents and come in two colors: Triple Black and Soapstone.

The QuietComfort Earbuds are equipped with a volume-optimised Active EQ technology that is said to adjust the highs and lows even when the volume is adjusted. They have a similar design to the QuietComfort Earbuds and we're expecting the sound experience to be almost identical. As a product designed for both intense and casual exercise, the earbuds should lock into your ears, preventing them from falling out, Bose says. And that's done without the typical trade-offs - like an irritating style pushed deep inside the ears or wrapped tightly around them. The product can also get an extra 12 hours when you place them inside the portable charging case for a total of 18 hours. They will be sold for $179 and will come in Triple Black, Baltic Blue and Glacier White.

Nearly a year ago Bose showcased its second-gen earbuds namely Earbuds 500 and Earbuds 700 and was expected to launch it last year itself but due to some issues the launch got pushed ahead to 2020 and we finally have these two new earbuds but with a new name and we even get the second generation of Bose Frames which launched last year. They use Bluetooth® 5.1, precisely placed antennae, and a new data transfer method for fewer dropouts. Other noticeable features include IPX4 water and sweat resistance and Bluetooth 5.1 with support for the SBC and AAC codecs. Each have simple on-bud touch controls for the most common commands like play and pause, answer and end calls, and access to your personal assistant.

Therefore, Bose is now trying to compete in other categories with the likes of Sony and Apple which is in the earbuds category.

The QC earbuds feature StayHear Max tips, which create a soft-yet-tight seal. If given a choice, would you go with the Airpods Pro or the Bose Earbuds?
