  • One of these is the new QuietComfort Earbuds
  • The new earbuds boast of the QuietComfort headphones' ANC in a smaller form

Bose recently released a slew of new devices, most notable of which is the new Bose QuietComfort Earbuds, a pair of true wireless earbuds featuring the company's legendary noise cancellation technology.

Various wireless earbuds from other companies, such as Apple and Sony, have offered noise cancellation features in an attempt to attract consumers. Apple's AirPods Pro appeal to iPhone and iPad users. Sony's popular WF-1000XM3 also offers great audio and ANC features and can be bought for less than the AirPods Pro's price at times. Indeed, the competition is tough.

Noise Cancellation

CNet, however, noted that Bose's new QuietComfort Earbuds offer better noise cancellation than the two mentioned above. Bose offers three customizable noise cancellation settings, and the “top-level” ANC allowed them to cancel a lot more noise compared to the AirPods Pro and WF-1000XM3.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds also feature a transparency mode that lets users hear important outside noise such as announcements, incoming cars and so on. This lets users listen to music while walking down the street or while waiting for announcements at the airport.

Sound Quality

Regarding sound quality, the QuietComfort Earbuds offer better sound than the AirPods Pro and is great for any type of music, including hip-hop and EDM. It sounds as good as Sennheiser's Momentum True Wireless 2, which sells for about $300.


The Verge noted that while the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds are good for taking and making calls, the AirPods Pro still win in terms of usability.

Still, Bose's device is able to remove ambient noise during calls, making it easy for users to hear what the other person is telling them even if it's noisy outside. It's just not as good as the company's pricier Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700.


The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds work even if users wear only one earbud. Bose designed the device so that the earbud that stays in the user's ear activates transparency more when the other earbud is removed. This results in a more natural blend of audio and ambient noise at the same time.

Battery Life And Other Details

Bose's QuietComfort Earbuds can last longer than the AirPods Pro – up to six hours on a single charge, Engadget noted. The charging case adds up to two charges. It is IPX4 rated for splash and sweat resistance, making it useful even when working out or walking in the rain.

Of course, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds has some downsides, such as a large charging case, per Engadget. The earbuds also slightly protrude from the ears. Those who don't mind, however, will like it.

Bose is selling the QuietComfort Earbuds for $279.95. It comes in Triple Black and Soapstone colors.
