Bose Announces Two Updates to Headphone Line

Bose announced two updates to its headphone line. The truly wireless SoundSport Free headphones offer an entirely better way to workout with music - from just two amazing little earbuds. And the iconic QC 35 becomes the first headphone to offer seamless voice access to Google Assistant, and now comes with settings to control the noise around you. The new SoundSport Free headphones will be available in early October for $249.95, with pre-orders starting today. The new QC35 II headphones are available beginning, and their price remains at $349.95. The SoundSport Free headphones were engineered to strike a new balance between size, performance, power and stability – in a no-wire, made-for-exercise design. Each earbud weighs just 0.35 ounces and measures just 1.1" high x 1.2" deep. They house a new antennae system to maintain a strong and reliable connection between each other, and the phone or tablet they're paired to – whether the device is 30 feet away, in pocket, gym bag, or strapped to arm. Combined with a miniature acoustic package, including Bose digital signal processing, volume optimized EQ, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, SoundSport Free delivers up to 5 hours of powerful, clear music – without cracks, pops, or hisses. SoundSport Free headphones are engineered for intense, focused training. They use proprietary StayHear+ Sport tips for a secure, firm fit that's comfortable for hours. They're tough and built to last, with an IPX4 rating to resist water and sweat year-round, inside and outdoors. And they make it easy to use phone and VPA – just one button press on the right earbud. SoundSport Free headphones are ready to go and easy to track, with a stunning high-gloss finish. Their charging case magnetically holds each earbud in place, doubles as storage, and provides two additional full charges for up to 10 more hours of battery life. When not stowed away, a new ‘Find My Buds’ feature on the Bose Connect App displays the last time and place they were used to locate them quickly. The QC35 II noise cancelling headphones have all the performance and features of the original QC35. They deliver the same industry-defining noise cancellation, audio performance, and up to 20 hours of battery life. The same controls remain on the right earcup – audio volume, and the multi-function button for incoming calls and accessing Siri. And now, there's a new Action button on the left earcup to connect to Google Assistant - without having to grab phone, unlock it, and find the app.

Bose Corporation introduces Tiny New Bluetooth Speaker

Bose Corporation introduced the SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker. Measuring just 3.75 inches wide and deep, 1.5 inches high, and weighing a mere 0.64 pounds, the Micro is tiny-until user turn it on. With unmatched sound for its size, and tested beyond its IPX7 waterproof rating, the Micro lets user enjoy music, take and make calls, and access Siri or user Google Assistant -out loud and anywhere, like never before. The Micro is packed with technology. A new custom transducer, miniature dual-passive radiators, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery were engineered together – as a micro-system. Inch for inch, the Micro delivers a different kind of mobile audio -up to 6 hours of surprisingly loud-and-clear audio and low bass -from an enclosure that fits entirely in the palm of user hand. The Micro is tough. It will survive summer's extreme heat, winter's bitter cold, and more than the industry's IPX7 rating. Waterproof from the inside out, it was made and tested to withstand soapy water, chlorinated water, and salt water. In the rain or snow, dropped in the sink, pool, or ocean, the Micro will keep playing. Its soft silicone exterior protects it from scratches, dents, cracks, hits, falls, dust, dirt and sand. And an equally durable strap on its flip-side attaches easily to bags, backpacks, bikes, coolers, and other gear. The Micro is friendly. It uses simple voice prompts for Bluetooth pairing, has an integrated speakerphone, and a multi-purpose button to take calls, make them, and access user VPA with one push -without grabbing user phone. When used with the Bose Connect app, it can sync with other SoundLink speakers for Stereo Mode (left-right channel) or Party Mode (to play music simultaneously). Colors, Availability, Pricing: The new SoundLink Micro comes in black, midnight blue, and bright orange. It will be available beginning September 21, 2017 for $109.95 at Bose retail stores,, and authorized Bose dealers.
