The Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones have been one of our favorite ANC headphone options to hit the market. Since then, there have been a few others that eventually rose to fame as well. However, Bose still holds a solid position in the market and continues to push on with the new generation model: The Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones.
It looks as though the QC 45 mostly takes on the same look and feel as the QC 35 models. What changed is on the inside. Where you used to have two modes of noise-cancellation to choose from, the company has now opted for either being enabled (“Quiet Mode”) or the new “Aware Mode”, which brings in the sound around you so you can listen in without taking off your headphones.
Then you have noise-cancellation that is brought into your phone calls as well. Focusing on your voice and canceling out the noise around you. Resulting in crisp/clear conversations.
They also provide up to 24 hours worth of listening, which makes for some great battery life. Of course, you have fast charging as well using a USB-C port, the ability to take them wired (cable included), and a nice case to store them in.
MSRP is $329, and they will be available in both Black and White Smoke color options. They will begin shipping on September 23rd and you have the option of pre-ordering them right now.
