Bose Debuts QuietComfort 3 Headphones

Bose Debuts QuietComfort 3 Headphones

Bose has rolled out a new set of noise-canceling headphones, incorporating the audio performance and noise reduction technologies from its previous on-ear headsets into a lighter, more comfortable and more portable design.

“We challenged ourselves when designing the QuietComfort 3 headphones,” said Sean Garrett, general manager of the Bose Noise Reduction Technology Group. “We engineered new innovations to offer performance never before achieved in an on-ear headphone. The QC3 headphones represent our design intent, as well as our commitment to research.”

Bose has increased effectiveness of the active noise reduction technologies in the QuietComfort 3 headphones in order to match the quality of noise reduction available in headphones which enclose the ear while still decreasing the overall size of the earcup. Bose also enhanced the ergonomic design of the headset so they’re more comfortable for long-term listening, including a new kind of cushion made from a memory foam cell structure which offers support while serving as an acoustic component of the headphone.

The QuietComfort 3 headphones also incorporate active equalization technology and Bose’s TriPort acoustic structure originally developed for aviation headsets
