In the in-ear space though, Bose has recently released its new QuietComfort Earbuds, said to be the most effective in-ear noise cancelling earbuds ever. Quite a bold claim. The buds debut proprietary advancements in hardware and software to continue the two decade legacy of QuietComfort headphones by introducing new StayHear Max tips that create a soft-yet-tight seal.
The buds use multiple microphones to sense, measure, and send any remaining noise to a chip loaded with a Bose exclusive new algorithm. Paired with tiny transducers, the system creates an opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond. And depending on the environment or personal taste, the Bose QC Earbuds have 11 levels of noise cancellation from “transparency” that keeps you aware of your surroundings, to full noise cancellation that lets you tune out completely or hear every detail from your content and conversations.
Each bud measures just over 2cm long and weighs 13 grams combined, the pair can give 18 hours of total listening time — 6 hours fully charged and an additional 12 using the charging case. The Bose QC Earbuds will be available from October 5th for £249.95 and can be pre-ordered below.
