Bose is ‘spy­ing on head­phone users’

Irish Daily Mail - - News -

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.
