Bose has announced two new truly wireless, or TWS, earbuds, and three audio sunglasses in India. The QuietComfort, or QC, earbuds are priced at Rs 26,990, while the Sport earbuds will be sold for Rs 17,990. The QC earbuds sport a gorgeous in-ear design and come with Active Noise Cancellation technology. Each bud measures over an inch long and weighs 8.5 grams. The QC earbuds come with 11 levels of noise control. As for music, the wearable avoids manufactured “boosts” in select frequencies, opting for faithful reproduction as close as possible to record itself.
The earbuds have 18 hours of total listening time — 6 hours fully charged and an additional 12 hours using the charging case. It has matte finish and gloss accents and is available in two colors – Triple Black and Soapstone.
As per Bose, the new Sports earbuds deliver better quality than their predecessor in about half their size. The company claims that the Sports earbuds were engineered from a clean sheet for better motivation, focus, and a better workout.
Each bud has an entirely new acoustic system using a high-efficiency driver, proprietary port design, and volume optimized EQ for clear, powerful performance.
The Sports earbuds “lock” in place for high-impact and low-impact exercise without hurting or budging.
The all-new Sport earbuds have up to 5 hours of battery life and a charging case that provides up to 10 hours of additional playback time. They are available in Triple Black, Baltic Blue, and Glacier White colors.
Both the QC Earbuds and Sport Earbuds are compatible with iOS devices, Android devices, and native VPAs. They use Bluetooth 5.1, precisely placed antennae, and a new data transfer method for fewer dropouts.
Both the earbuds are built to last with an IPX4 rating to resist sweat and water. Each has simple on-bud touch controls for the most common commands, including play and pause, answer and end calls, and access to a personal assistant.
