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 3 headphones.
Get more from your music – without the noisy background – with the QuietComfort 3 headphones. They have a compact, on-ear design with an award-winning combination of Bose-quality sound performance, noise reduction and a comfy fit. The QC3 headphones have a proven reputation for delivering high-end sound thanks to proprietary Bose technologies. Whether you're sitting at your desk, unwinding at home, or passing the time during a long-haul flight, with these headphones listening is a joy no matter where you are.
The headphones offer Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology, which electronically identifies, and then significantly reduces ambient noise, while delivering the sound or quietness you desire. Exclusive Bose signal processing and sound reproduction technologies deliver clear, lifelike sound. You’ll hear the full audio range – even the deepest, lowest tones – from headphones that are comparatively lightweight and small.
Imagine yourself in a bustling public place, such as a noisy train station or your busy office. Now imagine all that background noise fading away, so that you can enjoy the high-end sound of the QuietComfort 3 headphones. In fact, you’ll hear nuances in your favourite songs that you have never even noticed before. And you’ll be able to listen for hours, thanks to the softly cushioned, easy-on-the-ears fit of these comfortable headphones.
Wear these headphones on your next flight, and you will notice a remarkable reduction in engine noise the second you put them on. Want to listen to music? Just plug the cable into your portable player, tablet or the in-flight entertainment system. The cable of the QuietComfort 3 headphones fit directly into most portable devices.
There’s also a special cable for selected Apple devices. An inline microphone and three-button remote allow you to answer calls on your iPhone or manage the music on your other Apple devices. With the QuietComfort 3 headphones you’ll be in full control of the track selection, volume and voice applications, and you’ll be able to switch easily between your music and calls.
The headphones come with a handy wall charger and rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Expect over 25 hours of use from a fully-charged battery, and a lifespan of up to 500 charging cycles. The flat-folding ear cups can be easily and conveniently stored in the slim-line carrying case. QuietComfort 3 headphones also come with an airline adapter plug.
Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphone technology, a proprietary Bose innovation, electronically identifies and reduces ambient noise while faithfully preserving the sound or quietness you want. Proprietary Bose soft ear cushions feature a compact on-ear design that creates a vital acoustical seal and help to lessen unwanted noise, while offering a comfortable fit. The TriPort acoustic headphone structure produces a tonally-balanced audio performance thanks, in part, to tiny vents in the ear cups. You’ll be surprised to hear such deep, low notes from such small, light headphones. Superior sound performance is possible thanks to active equalisation technology, which electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response. Enjoy 25 hours of reliable use per charge. The headphones come with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a small wall-socket charger. The headphones include single, detachable and interchangeable audio cables: one for general use, and one for selected Apple devices. This offers more flexibility than permanently connected standard Y-cables. Thanks to the inline microphone you’ll be able to enjoy your iPhone conversations hands-free and have access to selected voice applications, such as Voice Control and VoiceOver, in other Apple devices. Switch between calls and music with the inline three-button remote, which also allows you to select tracks and control the volume and voice applications on some Apple devices. The flat-folding ear cups rotate 90 degrees for simple storage and portability in the sleek storage case, which will also protect your headphones and accessories while you’re on the go.
