Bose is ‘spying on headphone users’
HEADPHONES firm Bose has been using its products to spy on customers’ listening habits, a lawsuit claims.
Bose – whose QuietComfort 35 headphones, sell for around €380 – has been tracking and distributing customers’ data without telling them, according to the complaint filed in Chicago US District Court.
The suit claims the Bose Connect app does more than pair wireless headphones with phones, tablets or computers – it also shares the user’s listening history with third-party firms which collect data.
Bose has not commented on the lawsuit.
