While the tech industry is poised to ditch 3.5 mm analogue audio jack in mobile devices, Bose has also geared up to this and announced new headphones in its QuietComfort range and also launched a new range of sports headphones in India. The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones are priced at Rs. 29,363 in India.
These are Bose’s first headsets that feature both wireless and noise-cancelling technology, unlike the earlier models which used to have either of the technology. The QuietComfort 35 headphones come with digital noise cancellation technology. The headphones utilise reverse sound waves based on the ambient noise to cancel it out.
The updated equaliser in the QC35 also balances sound according to the volume level. The around-ear headphones will be available to buy from today itself. It is available in black and silver colours.
Bose also launched QuietControl 30 in-ear noise-cancelling headphones priced at Rs. 26,438 and SoundSport Wireless priced at Rs. 13,275 and Rs. 17,663 SoundSport Wireless Pulse for Rs. 17,663.
The highlight of QuitControl 30, an in-ear headphone, is that it houses a controllable noise cancellation module which is slightly different from its costlier sibling QuitControl 35. It allows the user to control the level of noise depending on the ambience. The QC30 can deliver backup up to 10 hours. The in-ear headphone will be available to buy from September this year. It will be available in black colour.
SoundSport Wireless and SoundSport Wireless Pulse are aimed at fitness enthusiasts. These are sweat and water resistant, also have a heart-rate monitor built into the earbuds for the Pulse model. The QC30 and Pulse headphones will be launched in September 2015, while the QC35 and Soundsport Wireless are launching immediately.
