Bose Planning Successor To QuietComfort Headphones
Bose is planning a follow-up to its popular QuietComfort 35 II noise-cancelling headphones, according to a filing with the US Federal Communications Commission.
While not much is known yet beyond the current name, QuietComfort 45, images obtained by WinFuture and The Verge do show a similar design to the other headphones in the QuietComfort range, though the micro-USB charging port has been swapped out for USB-C.
The headphones appear to retain the physical buttons seen on their predecessors, eschewing the touch controls favoured by Sony’s competing WH-1000XM4 cans as well as Bose’s own Noise Cancelling Headphones 700.
The QuietComfort 45 headphones would be the first in the QuietComfort range since the QC 35 II were released in 2017 as an update to the previous year’s QC 35, though Bose did last year release the QC 35 II gaming – essentially the QC 35 II with the addition of a gaming mic.
Release date and pricing have yet to be officially announced.
