Bose debuts new technology uniquely tuned for personalized performance and leading noise cancellation with the QuietComfort Earbuds II.
When we think of Bose we think of powerful home sound systems, car audio setups and even over-ear headphones that effectively block out the world around us. However, the brand has also made serious inroads into the earbud scene and its newest release, the QuietComfort Earbuds II, come packed with performance and features.
The brand that invented noise-cancelling headphones has upped the ante with the QuietComfort Earbuds II, which boast Bose CustomTune sound calibration technology, allowing for intelligently personalised audio and noise cancellation performance to the unique shape of every ear.
This pioneering innovation is triggered every time the buds are removed from their case and placed in your ears. A proprietary tone is played, and a microphone inside the earbud measures your ear canal’s acoustic response. That information is then used to precisely tailor both audio and noise cancellation performance especially for you — all within less than half a second.
For audio, CustomTune fully optimizes the sound frequency profile to the unique properties of every ear, so the sound that reaches the eardrum is just as the artist intended — lifelike, balanced audio with nuance, clarity, and depth. For more powerful noise cancellation, CustomTune also calibrates the noise reduction signal to your ears, enabling a significant performance improvement. It targets frequencies that were previously difficult to reduce — like voices of nearby coworkers, screaming babies on the bus or family distractions in your home office — so now they fade away without you ever knowing they were there. And CustomTune continuously adapts to changing noise in your environment, ensuring the best level of noise cancellation is maintained.
In addition, the QC Earbuds II use four microphones in each bud — one on the inside and three on the outside — to sense, measure, and send unwanted noise to a proprietary electronic chip loaded with an exclusive algorithm. Together with tiny transducers, the system responds with a precise, equal, and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond. The result is dramatic and exclusive to Bose.
Featuring an all-new design, each bud is about one-third smaller than its predecessor, weighs less than 7 grams, and comes in a pocketable charging case. For further personalization, they also include an ear tip Fit Kit featuring a new two-piece system with interchangeable stability bands and ear tips, delivering all-day comfort and wearability.
The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II are compatible with both Apple and Android devices. They feature improved voice pickup enabled by an updated noise removal algorithm and include Bluetooth 5.3 capability, have an IPX4 rating for sweat and water resistance, and work with a mobile device’s built-in voice assistant. Initially available in Triple Black, a Soapstone colour variant will also be available later this year.
