You turn them on, and noise fades away. Your favorite songs soar to new heights, sounding so rich and clear it’s like you’re hearing them for the first time. It’s music to your ears — but it’s not magic. It’s the precise arrangement of microphones inside and outside the earcups. It’s proprietary electronics that continuously measure, compare, and react to outside noises. And, it’s the electronics sending an equal and opposite signal to the earcups’ speakers to cancel those noises. You want fullness and clarity for your music, regardless of how loud it gets. That’s why our drivers feature volume-optimized EQ for optimized performance. All so you can enjoy the music you love — or the silence you need.
It’s thought that battery life suffers with wireless headphones. Bose changed that way of thinking by customizing the size and shape of their lithium ion battery to optimize the space available in the earcup — all without compromising fit or comfort. You can enjoy up to 20 hours on one charge while using the headphones wirelessly. The included audio cable also gives you up to 40 hours of wired play time.
Materials matter. That’s why the headband on the Bose noise cancelling wireless headphones isn’t just soft, it’s luxurious. Wrapped in Alcantara — the soft covering material found in many high-end cars — it provides a welcoming comfort designed for all-day listening. The earcups are manufactured from synthetic protein leather and are sealed to the frame with a silicone bead for passive noise cancelling.
When you want to take your music everywhere, you need headphones that are built to keep up. The Bose noise cancelling wireless headphones use glass-filled nylon that provides a lightweight feel but has a high level of durability. And, stainless steel is used for the headband spring and pivots to ensure the headphones are durable enough for everyday use.
Specifications and Requirements
|Headphones||18 cm H x 17 cm W x 8.1 cm D (0.52 lb/234 g)|
|What is NFC?|
|Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that enables two NFC-enabled devices to communicate when they are placed in close proximity, typically less than 4 in (10 cm). For Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones, NFC is used to facilitate Bluetooth pairing. When an NFC-enabled device, such as a smartphone, is placed near the right earcup of the headphones, it pairs them to the device via Bluetooth. Placing the device near the earcup a second time will unpair the headphones.|
|Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones take calls?|
|Yes. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones have a dual-microphone system to allow you to use them during calls when connected to a smartphone that supports the Bluetooth® HFP profile. In addition to traditional calls, the headphones will work with many apps that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), such as Skype or FaceTime. The dual-mic system helps reject wind and background noise to ensure an exceptional far-end experience, while sidetone lets you hear your own voice so you sound natural when speaking on a call. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones headphones also support HD Voice.|
|How do I pair Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones with my mobile device?|
|For NFC-enabled phones, simply turn on the headphones by sliding the three-position power switch to the middle position and then tap the back side of your phone on the front of the right earcup where you see the embossed NFC logo, and follow the prompt to accept a connection. If you don’t have an NFC-enabled phone, first, make sure the headphones are turned on by sliding the three-position power switch to the middle position. Next, press the three-position power switch to the Bluetooth icon until the Bluetooth LED flashes blue or the voice-enhanced user interface gives you additional directions. Now, follow the directions within the smartphone’s Bluetooth menu to connect the headphones. Once the connection is made, the Bluetooth LED will turn white.|
|Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones simultaneously be connected to two mobile devices?|
|Yes. Multi-point technology allows Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones to maintain a connection to two devices at the same time—for example, an iPad and a smartphone. So while you’re watching video on the connected iPad, the headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call from the connected smartphone. When the call is finished, the headphones switch back to the video on the iPad.|
|What is the range of Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones?|
|Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones have a range of 33 feet (10 meters) from the source device. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room the user is in and the adjacent room. This range may be reduced by physical obstructions, such as walls and doors, or by interference from other electronic devices. Pops or a crackling noise may be heard if there’s interference with the Bluetooth® connection. If that happens, move away from wireless routers or microwaves and bring your headphones closer to the Bluetooth device.|
|How do I charge Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones?|
|Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones can be charged using the USB cable supplied in the box and plugging it into a USB port on a computer or a wall charger (sold separately). Allow up to 2.25 hours for the headphones to fully charge. Once it is fully charged, the battery indicator light will turn green. When a user doesn’t have time for a full charge, the fast-charge feature provides up to 2.5 hours of play time from a quick, 15-minute charge.|
|How long will the battery stay charged?|
|Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones use a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that stays powered for up to 20 hours while using the headphones wirelessly and up to 40 hours for wired use.|
|Can you listen to music when the battery runs down?|
|Yes. These headphones allow users to continue to listen to their source even if the battery power is depleted. Without power, neither active noise cancellation nor Active EQ is able to function.|
|Can I charge Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones from my PC/laptop?|
|Yes. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones come with a USB cable that allows the headphones to be charged from the user’s PC or laptop. Please note that the PC or laptop must be on and awake in order to charge over USB.|
|What are the buttons for on the back of the right earcup?|
|The larger middle button is the multi-function button. It initiates play/pause and other track controls for videos and music, answers and ends calls, and can also initiate voice commands such as Siri or voice dial. The buttons on either side of the multi-function button are volume +/- buttons. They allow you to easily adjust volume in an intuitive up/down vertical orientation.|
