Bose unveils QuietComfort 15 Noise-Cancelling headphones


Bose has introduced its new QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones, a replacement for the company’s aging QuietComfort 2 headphones. The QC 15s feature a newly-developed, more sophisticated approach to active noise reduction than their predecessors, placing microphones both inside and outside the earcup to better sense ambient sounds and produce an appropriate cancellation signal. Other features include new proprietary ear cushions for additional passive isolation, an around-the-ear design, the ability to run for roughly 35 hours on a single AAA battery, and the company’s TriPort acoustic headphone structure for stronger bass. The Bose QuietComfort 15 will be available in silver starting August 20th for $300.

One wonders if these new Bose headphones have the same structural weakness at the headband joint to the ear cup holders?  On my QC2, this plastic part snapped during normal use during a flight to LA.  I searched Google on this and it turned out to be a widely occurring problem.

Does Bose happily repair or replace the QC2 headphones? Perhaps. (In an alternate universe where unicorns gambol and fart rainbows). 


They provide the unfortunate owner of broken Bose QC2 headphones with the opportunity to trade in the broken headphones for new ones for the paltry sum of $100.00.

Let the buyer beware.
