Bose will be launching its second-gen QuietComfort Earbuds in a number of days and is promising some noticeable enhancements that come with them. the new buds (Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II) will be equipped with the latest noise cancellation technology that the company refers to as “CustomTune”.
The new noise cancelation tech is said to send a chime into your ear canal that bounces back into built-in microphones, allowing it to determine the unique shape of your ear. It will then auto-adjust the noise cancellation and sound performance based on this data.
Between the buds and the app, you’ll get adjustable “Quiet” (noise cancellation) and “Aware” (aka transparency) modes, along with adjustable EQ. Along with simple touch controls for music, accepting calls, or adjusting volume.
You’ll get up to 6 hours of battery life with these as well as an additional 18 hours using the travel charging case they come with. Allowing for a total of up to 24 hours of listening or talking. The case supports quick charge, giving yo up to 2 hours of use with just 20 minutes of charge.
The buds will come in two different color options, including Triple Black and Soapstone (which is a slightly grayish white). MSRP is $299, and they will begin to ship the Triple Black model on September 15th. It looks like the Soapstone model has a bit of a delay as it won’t be seen until early November for whatever reasons and won’t be available for pre-order, unlike the Triple Black.
However, the Triple Black can be pre-ordered right now via Bose’s website. Soon after, you will see them become available at select retailers for an extended release pre-order campaign (or so it appears).
