Bose Qui­etCom­fort 3

Sound+Image - - Second Decade -

Not the first-ever noise can­cellers, and Bose had de­liv­ered pro­fes­sional noise-can­cellers be­fore, but the QC3 nailed that ex­ec­u­tive travel style which has de­fined con­sumer noise-can­celling head­phones ever since. On a Swis­sAir flight in 1978, when ear-tubes were be­ing re­placed by elec­tronic head­phones, Dr Amar Bose was so dis­ap­pointed by the back­ground noise of the plane that he had a notepad of equa­tions by the time he touched down on home soil. Much time and in­vest­ment later, the QC3’s com­bi­na­tion of sound qual­ity, ex­ec­u­tive style and pow­er­ful NC tech­nol­ogy brought buy­ers in droves.
