Bose Headphone Patent Litigation Settled


Bose Corporation today announced that it has settled its litigation against Phitek Corporation at the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and U.S. District Court of Massachusetts.

Bose’s complaint charged that Phitek manufactured headphones for Audio-Technica and Creative Labs that infringe Bose U.S. patents protecting the active noise-reducing headphone technology found in Bose QuietComfort headphones.

As part of the settlement, Phitek has agreed to make certain changes to its headphones to be clear of the Bose patents at issue.

Bose has made significant investments in the research, development, engineering and design of the proprietary technologies found in its headphones. These patented Bose technologies enable the unique performance found in the QuietComfort 2 and QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones. Today, Bose headphone products are sold in the United States and throughout the world.

No further details of the settlement will be disclosed.
