Bose Ups The Ante On Noise-Canceling With These True Wireless Earbuds

Bose is already one of the most trusted names within the audio space, and their accessories have taken on an identity of their own as the premiere noise-canceling example for enthusiastic listeners. Now, the brand has upgraded its already-robust lineup with the Quietcomfort (and Quietcomfort Sport) — the most effective noise-canceling earbuds to date.

The Bose Quietcomfort Earbud is a truly-wireless offering that capitalizes on the company’s ultra-slim in-ear design. Although the flagship model has been around for over 20 years, the most recent generation offers yet another dramatic increase in quality, courtesy of its proprietary noise-canceling technology, StayHear Max tips, and an exclusive algorithm that utilizes data sent from the headphone’s built-in transducers to create an opposing audio frequency. In effect, the earbud’s natural noise reduction is complemented by cutting-edge noise masking, turning traffic, voices, and disruptive external audio sources into a thing of the past. Boasting over 18 hours of total listening time, these sleek, in-ear variants are the most capable Quietcomfort generation yet. There’s also a Sport version — which utilizes a high-efficiency driver, proprietary port design, optimized EQ, and “locking” tips — for the more athletically-inclined. Head to the Bose website to pick up your own for $280.
