Bose QuietControl 30 Wireless Earphones Adjust ANC

Bose QuietControl 30 Wireless Earphones on table

Bose today announced the QuietControl 30 (QC30) wireless in-ear headphones with variable noise cancelling. This Bose breakthrough puts active noise cancellation (ANC) in your hands, letting you adjust how much outside sound you block out or let in. These new Bluetooth headphones appear to be the improved, hands-free alternative to the Bose QuietComfort 20 in-ear (wired) headphones.

The QC30’s earbuds integrate a total of six microphones, and a neckband that houses the rest of the electronics system for take-anywhere performance. Turn its noise cancellation up or down, not on or off, and it adapts to the level you set without changing your music volume. To hear every note from your favorite tracks and artists, the QC30 uses a new EQ customized for its size and design.

The QC30 earphones offer up to 10 hours of battery life from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, lasting as long as a fully-charged phone or tablet. Simple buttons are on an in-line remote: music volume, play/pause, answer/end calls, and noise control. StayHear+ tips eliminate the pressure and aches of conventional ear tips for hours and hours of wear.

The QC30 also uses a dual-mic system to reject the annoying background sounds that interfere with talking. Text-to-speech accuracy is improved with Siri and other phone VPAs. Conversations are clearer, voices sound natural, and every word can be heard on both ends.

The free Bose Connect app adds more functionality. Users can connect and switch between Bluetooth devices, update software, personalize their voice prompt language, and adjust noise cancellation.
