Bose introduces QuietComfort Earbuds II, featuring personalised performance and optimal noise cancellation technology.

Bose has announced the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II, with Bose CustomTune sound calibration technology, personalised audio and noise cancellation.

CustomTune is triggered every time the buds are removed from their case and placed in your ears. A proprietary tone is played, and a microphone measures your ear canal’s acoustic response to tailor both audio and noise cancellation performance.

CustomTune fully optimises the sound frequency profile to the unique properties of every ear, so the sound that reaches the eardrum is just as the artist intended.

Each bud is one-third smaller than its predecessor, weighs just six grams and comes in a pocketable charging case. There are four microphones in each bud to sense, measure and send unwanted noise to a proprietary electronic chip. And they embrace a twopiece system: a stability band and an umbrella-shaped silicone eartip to create a firm seal. A Bose Fit Kit supplies three sizes of eartips and three sizes of stability bands — allowing nine customisation options for each bud.

The new buds are compatible with Apple and Android devices, feature improved voice pickup, include Bluetooth 5.3 capability, have an IPX4 rating for sweat and water resistance, and work with a mobile device’s built-in voice assistant. Enjoy six hours of battery with three additional charges. The case can fully charge the buds in one hour, while 20 minutes provides up to two hours of playback. The case itself fully recharges in three hours.

Capacitive touch controls on both the left and right earbuds provide access to common commands. Additionally, the Bose Music app provides shortcut settings, noise cancellation modes and adjustable EQ.

The buds are available in Triple Black and the Soapstone colour variant will also be available later this year. ✤
