Bose Just Released Its Long-Awaited Answer to the Airpods Pro
One's a noise-cancelling wonder, the other's ideal for workouts
Since we frequently wear Bose headphones to make our flights quiet — which feels so six months ago, admittedly — there’s no reason not to show the same love for the brand’s new like-minded earbuds.
(Both releases ship on September 29th and are available for pre-order.)
The QuietComfort Earbuds share part of a name with our favorite noise-cancelling headphones, and Bose is calling these the “world’s most effective noise-cancelling earbuds.” They’ve combined active and passive noise reduction features, while also allowing you to personalize the amount of sound that comes in and out.
They’re also weather-resistant and feature touch controls in lieu of buttons — a positive for some people, an admitted drawback for others. The six hours of playtime is decent, and you can tack on another 12 with the case.
The Sport Earbuds add a bit of rare color for a Bose release; these sweat- and weather-resistant ‘buds are all about a comfy but secure fit (via the umbrella-shaped tip and the extended flexible wing) while promising a balanced sound … even if you crank them up, which you may need to do during, say, your workouts.
Featuring five hours of playtime per charge and a range of 30 feet, this is your elevated gym audio gear … or, sigh, your “workout at the park or at home from a safe distance” earbuds.
