Bose announced the new QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise-Cancelling headphones that is the “quietest Bose headphones ever.” The QuietComfort 15 features an around-ear design and a single ercup cable can be detached untethered noise reduction. When the cable is removed, users just flip a switch on the right earcup to activate the Acoustic Noise-Cancelling technology.
The Bose QC 15 includes also new ear cushion technology for additional passive attenuation. It runs on a single AAA battery that offers up to 35 hours of use.
The QuietComfort 15 headphones debut a more sophisticated, proprietary electronics approach to active noise reduction, placing microphones both inside and outside the earcup. This electronics system better senses the sound in almost any environment and then more effectively measures, compares and reacts to the noise –- instant by instant –- to produce an opposing cancellation signal.
