The QuietComfort Earbuds will offer “the world’s most effective noise cancelling” backed by crisp audio with deep bass, thanks to “breakthrough acoustic innovations. ” This is the sort of language that Bose always uses for new products, but there’s no company more closely tied to noise cancellation technology than Bose.
Bose has apparently reconsidered its branding choices and is reverting back to its signature “QuietComfort” series: the Noise Canceling Headphones 700 are now simply called the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds.
Last year, a spokesperson told me that the Noise Canceling Earbuds 700 “will use proprietary Bose active noise-cancellation, and will have better performance than the Echo Buds.
Last year, Bose said it was readying two sets of new earbuds — the Noise Canceling Earbuds 500 and 700, still listed on this website — and a new video suggests the launch of at least one of those could be imminent.
Bose hasn’t been out of the game entirely since releasing the SoundSport Free; the company collaborated with Amazon on the Echo Buds, which feature Bose’s active noise reduction technology.
Bose did make big strides in voice quality with the Noise Canceling Headphones 700, so I’m looking forward to seeing how those have carried over to earbuds.
Bose hasn’t released a pair of true wireless earbuds since the SoundSport Free in 2017, but it seems the company is about to make up for lost time.
Bose’s video tells us a lot about the QuietComfort Earbuds and shows both black-and-white and silver color options, but it stops short of revealing how much they’ll cost or when they’ll be available.
