Bose announces new line of noise-canceling headphones and earbuds
The Noise Canceling Headphones 700 offers the same premium feature as the QC35 II, which are still selling for $350, and adds some new ones, but they're more expensive. Customers can now pre-order the Noise Canceling Headphone 700 right now for no less than $400.
Besides the brand new design, the 700 feature Bose AR, the world's first audio augmented reality platform, which will allow users to hear and be heard like never before. They include an adaptive mic system for superior voice pickup, and support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa through the Bose Music app. Both services can be activated from the button on the right earcup.
The Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 includes 11 levels of noise cancellation that you can choose from. Also, for quick interruptions, you'll be able to press a button for Conversation mode to pause the music and let the surrounding noise in.
Next, the Bose Earbuds 500 are an updated version of the SoundSport Free earbuds, but they're smaller and sleeker. They feature touch controls to access Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, but they include Bose AR, just like the more expensive Noise Canceling Headphones 700.
They haven't been priced yet as Bose announced the Earbuds 500 will only be available for purchase in late 2019, so there's still time to decide on the price.
Last but not least, the Bose Noise Canceling Earbuds 700 will only be launched in 2020. Just like the other two pair of headphones announced today, these will come with Bose AR, intuitive touch controls, a choice of virtual assistant and a portable charging case that will power the earbuds when they're not used.
