Bose Corporation Key Developments

Bose to Shut Monaghan Plant, 140 Jobs Go; to Transfer its Operations to the Far East

Bose reported it is to close its factory in Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan, with the loss of around 140 jobs. The plants operations will transfer to the Far East as part of a global rationalization and cost-saving plan by the group.

Bose Corporation to Close its Columbia Operations and Eliminate 300 Positions

Bose Corporation will close its Columbia operations this fall and eliminate all 300 positions at the plant. The closing is part of an effort by the company to streamline its global supply chain, and will also include closing the company's Carrickmacross, Ireland facility. Operations at the South Carolina plant will cease in September while operations at the Ireland facility will cease in April 2015. In the meantime, work will slowly wind down in both facilities.

Bose Introduces QuietComfort(R) 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling(R) Headphones

Bose Corporation introduced the QuietComfort(R) 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling(R) headphones, the next generation of its category-defining QuietComfort headphones. The new QuietComfort 25 headphones feature an entirely new design, combining better noise reduction and audio performance with a stunning new look and greater portability. They replace the legendary QC(R) 15 headphones and will be available beginning September 3, 2014. The QuietComfort 25 headphones benefit from over 30 years of ongoing research, cancelling more noise than any other Bose consumer headphone in history -- especially at low frequencies. Bose engineers placed microphones both inside and outside the earcup to better sense and measure unwanted sounds. The measurements are then sent to a digital electronic chip, exclusive to Bose, that calculates a more precise equal and opposite noise cancellation signal -- within a fraction of a millisecond. So powerful, the Bose chip reduces the footprint of the headphone's electronics, while delivering a new level of quiet for around-ear headphones. Distractions instantly fade away, even in the most demanding environments.
