Bose® Releases SoundSport Free™ Headphones, Updates QuietComfort™ 35


Bose® has updated its popular SoundSport™ wireless in-ear headphones with a new version, called the SoundSport Free, that does away with wires completely, leaving customers with two independent wireless ’buds that connect to computers and mobile devices via Bluetooth 4.1. They stay planted, thanks to StayHear+ eartips, also found on other Bose in-ear headphones, and three sizes are included to fit a wide range of ears. The SoundSport Free has a built-in microphone for phone calls, and integrated controls let you pause your music, adjust the volume, and skip tracks. IPX4 water resistance helps prevent interference from sweat or light rain. The included charging case has enough juice for two full charges, each of which is enough for up to five hours of playback.

Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones

The QuietComfort™ 35 has been updated to Series II, gaining a new button that connects users to Google Assistant on compatible devices. Alternatively, it can be used to adjust noise cancellation between Off, Full, and a Low setting that blocks some noise but helps you retain situational awareness. Otherwise, the Series II is just like the originals: 20 hours of battery life, Bluetooth connectivity with NFC pairing, as well as a wired option, Alcantara rotating earcups, and Bose’s famous active noise cancellation. The Series II is available in black or silver, while the SoundSport Free can be found in black or a Citron/navy dual-tone color.
