Bose’s Qui­etCom­fort QC25 noise-can­celling head­phones now come in two ver­sions: one for iPod, iPad and iPhone mod­els, and a newly avail­able ver­sion for most Sam­sung Galaxy smartphones/tablets and An­droid de­vices. Both mod­els have an in-line mi­cro­phone and re­mote con­trol to make it eas­ier to take calls and con­trol your mu­sic. Ac­cord­ing to Bose, its Qui­etCom­fort 25 head­phones cancel more noise than any other Bose con­sumer head­phone in his­tory—es­pe­cially at low fre­quen­cies—and have less cir­cuit ‘hiss’ than con­ven­tional ac­tive noise-can­celling head­phones. Their Ac­tive EQ cir­cuit also de­liv­ers a smoother fre­quency re­sponse than any other Bose head­phones, along with deep, de­tailed bass thanks to Bose’s TriPort tech­nol­ogy. ‘ Th­ese im­prove­ments can be heard and felt: ev­ery record­ing is re­pro­duced more nat­u­rally, re­gard­less of genre,’ said Sean Gar­rett, vice pres­i­dent of the Bose Noise Re­duc­tion Tech­nol­ogy Group. ‘ There is no dis­tor­tion or ex­ag­ger­a­tion of in­stru­ments or vo­cals. In­stead, the QC25 head­phones stay true to Bose’s 50-year pur­suit of re-cre­at­ing—rather than rein­vent­ing—a live per­for­mance.’ Un­like some early Bose mod­els, the Qui­etCom­fort 25s can be used as or­di­nary head­phones if the bat­tery goes flat. Bose claims the sin­gle AAA bat­tery is good for up to 35 hours of use. The head­band de­sign of the Qui­etCom­fort 25 is pro­pri­etary to Bose, and its earpads use an en­gi­neered fab­ric found in high-end au­to­mo­tive ap­pli­ca­tions. The ear cush­ions are made of pro­tein leather, and the earcups fea­ture a soft-touch TPE bumper and cast zinc pivot. The head­phones fold for porta­bil­ity and come with a car­ry­ing case that Bose claims is smaller than any in the in­dus­try. Avail­able now di­rect from Bose and Bose re­tail stores for $399 they will be­come avail­able from Bose au­tho­rised re­sellers in June, 2015.
