Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Ever since then, Bose engineers have focused on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the Bose QuietComfort 5i headphones.
About The Product
QuietComfort 15 headphones are made with improvements in noise reduction technology made by Bose, which means you’ll hear more of your films and music and less noise. In addition, they provide a durable and comfy fit, with the sound quality you’d expect from Bose, of course.
Bose technology in practice
Sophisticated technology in the microphones, which sit on the inside and outside of each ear cup, senses the ambient noise and minimises the sound level. Bose-own ear cushion technology absorbs some of the noise before you can even hear it. These innovations by Bose work together to create a more pleasurable listening experience.
Unwind with music - or without it
These small, lightweight earcups also feature Bose-own signal processing and TriPort acoustic headphone structure for more natural sound - including full low notes. Switch on QC headphones to minimise the noise around you, wherever you are, when you're not in the mood for music.
Take the call. Stay in control
QuietComfort 15 headphones come with a cable customised for certain Apple products. An inline microphone and remote allow you to answer calls on your iPhone and puts you in control of music functions on other Apple products. A mobile kit that allows your QC headphones to work with other mobile phones is also available.
Hear only what you want to hear
Imagine the roar of the engines fading to a murmur when you fly. Imagine listening to music at home or at work without outside noise getting between you and the music. Imagine being able to switch to calls at the press of a button. It’s all possible with QuietComfort 15 headphones. You will hear more of what you’d like to hear, and less of what you don't.
Bose-own innovations now use microphones on the inside and outside of both ear cups to pick up and cancel out more of the noise around you for major noise reduction over a broader range of frequencies. Bose’s proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure has small vents in the ear cups that deliver a tonally-balanced sound performance, with rich bass notes, from lightweight, on-ear headphones. The frequency response of the headphones is tuned electronically using active equalisation technology, to create an amazing sound performance. Two detachable audio cables are provided, for more ease-of-use than permanently connected Y-cables. This includes a cable for selected Apple products and a cable for general use. An inline microphone makes hands-free iPhone conversations possible, and allows access to various voice applications, like Voice Control and VoiceOver, for selected Apple devices. Switch between your music and calls, and stay in control of track selection, volume and voice applications on certain Apple devices with the inline three-button remote. Advanced ear cushions are engineered with innovative materials that create an all-important acoustic seal, which helps to cancel noise out, while fitting comfortably. Flat-folding ear cups swivel 90 degrees for convenient portability and storage in the included carrying case, which protects the headphone and your accessories when you’re on the go.
