Bose rarely disappoints with the quality of audio they deliver and they’re all set to impress us yet again with the launch of the new Bose QuietComfort (QC) Earbuds, Sports Earbuds and three new Frames, revolutionary sunglasses that plays music.
Starting with the QC Earbuds, Bose says these earbuds are designed to deliver ‘the quiet of the Bose around-ear noise cancelling headphones’ in an in-ear design. Each earbud weighs less than 10 grams and they’re equipped with Bose’s proprietary noise cancellation system which is aided through StayHear Max tips and an electronic chip loaded with a new algorithm. The result is that even noisy environments are transformed into quiet spaces once these earbuds are put on. The QC Earbuds are equipped with 11 levels of noise control, ranging from ‘transparency’ mode – which keeps the users aware of their surroundings – to full noise cancellation. With the expected ability to thoroughly upgrade the audio quality, these QC Earbuds are also bolstered through a sharp microphone that pushes out the noise and focuses on the voice.
The QC Earbuds have a total battery life of 18 hours: 6 hours through the earbuds and 12 hours through the case. They are priced at Rs. 26,990.
The Sports Earbuds, on the other hand, are solely designed for ‘better motivation, better focus, and a better workout’. Bose claims that each bud is equipped with a new acoustic system using a high-efficiency driver, a proprietary port design, and volume-optimised EQ. The Sports Earbuds also have the StayHear Max tip that securely fit into the user’s ears without hurting or budging. The Sports Earbuds provide comfort and superior audio quality regardless of the workout, whether it’s HIIT, yoga, or a lifting session at the gym. The new Sport Earbuds have up to 5 hours of battery life and a charging case that provides up to 10 hours of additional playback time.
Bose’s Sports Earbuds are priced at Rs. 17,990. Both, the QC and the Sports Earbuds are IPX4 rated, making them resistant to water and sweat and utilise Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity.
Tempo, Tenor, and Soprano are the names of the three new Frames glasses. Utilising polarised lenses, each blocking up to 99% of the UV Rays and their stylish look makes them suitable for casual wear or for sports. Bose’s sleek audio system adds less than 50grams of additional weight and the system is well hidden. The Frames connect with smartphones to stream music and for call assistance. Like their predecessors, the new Frames provide superior audio quality which is directed to the user and isolated from others. All three Frames sunglasses have better voice pickup and a volume-optimised EQ.
The Frames Tempo sports sunglasses are made from TR90 and pack in a 22mm driver embedded in each temple. They are sweat, weather, scratch, and shatter-resistant and have a battery life of 8 hours.
The Frames Tenor is smaller and square-styled whereas the Soprano is subtly cat-eyed. Both house a 16mm driver, delivering better bass and a battery life of 5.5 hours. They both are scratch and shatter-resistant as well.
All three Frames are priced at Rs. 21,990 and interchangeable lenses cost Rs. 2,990 for the Tempo and start from Rs. 1,990 for Tenor and Soprano.
