Bose’s Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones
Welcome to a Quieter World
Bose released the third iteration in its QuietComfort series of headphones. When it comes to noise cancelling headphones, I can’t find a better choice. Bose went back to the drawing board and designed a more compact, sleek and streamlined model with the QuietComfort 3 headphones. The design overhaul also includes a new feature. The Whether or not you think they're overpriced, Bose's luxuriously designed QuietComfort models have set the standard for premium noise-canceling headphones. As their model number indicates, the $349 QuietComfort 3s are the third iteration of these popular headphones, and for this go-round, the folks at Bose set out to make a smaller pair of headphones that would sound just as good as the QuietComfort 2s, which remain on the market at $299.
The Bose QuietComfort 3s are indeed significantly smaller their predecessors, and they feature an on-ear (supra-aural) rather than the over-the-ear (circumaural) design of the QuietComfort 2s. Impressively …
The deisn overhaul also inclusedon-the-ear (supra aural) fit is the next level over the circumaural (over the ear) fit. The design doesn’t stop there. These headphones are nothing short of impressive. There is memory foam on the inside of the headphones and the fit is so snug that no sound creeps in or out of the headset.
The Bose QuietComfort 3s flat design has a built in noise reducing circuitry. They come with their own little posh carrying case that’s protects the hardware. When you’re travelling by plane there is a two prong adapter and long cord that adds to the overall comfort and convenience.
The last part of the Bose redesign is the lithium-ion battery. It comes with a small travel charger to make sure you can plug up where ever you may be. The battery life is approximately 20 hours. You can purchase another battery for $50. The downside is that when your battery life is low a regular AAA cell won’t do the trick for a temporary fix.
