Bose SoundLink II Around-Ear Wireless Headphones

Today, Bose introduced the SoundLink around-ear wireless headphones II, which claim to combine the best sound quality of any wireless headphone available with a whole new kind of wireless experience: an amazing 15 hours of battery life, multi-point for connecting two devices, quick pairing with NFC technology, seamless audio/video sync, easy switching between music and calls, and intuitive controls and voice prompts that don’t leave you guessing. They’re made for mobile — built to last and light and comfortable for all day, everyday use.

Wireless Sound
The SoundLink around-ear wireless headphones II use proprietary technologies, including active equalization and new volume-optimized equalization, so your music is detailed and real at any volume. There are no manufactured boosts because they’re not needed for impact. What you hear is as close as possible to what was recorded, rather than re-created or altered.

For calls, the SoundLink around-ear headphones II use an advanced microphone system, HD voice and adaptive audio adjustment technology for wind or noise. Volume is changed automatically based on speech level and changing environments, letting you move from a quiet building to a busy street without missing a word or fumbling for controls.

Wireless Functionality
The SoundLink around-ear headphones II offer true wireless freedom. It starts with up to 15 hours of battery life on a single charge — 25% more than the industry standard. If you’re in a rush or on the go, a quick 15-minute charge will provide up to two hours of play time through the included USB cable. The experience gets better from there. With multi-point, you can stay simultaneously connected to two devices, making it possible to watch a movie or sports on your tablet, and take or make a call on your phone. And while conventional wireless headphones can have delays syncing audio and video, the SoundLink headphones’ connection is seamless for enjoying videos or using FaceTime. Pairing is more than easy, too. Tap the right earcup to pair for NFC-enabled devices, or just connect your Bluetooth device via the latest Bluetooth technology. To switch between music and calls, you don’t need your phone. There are smart, intuitive controls on the headphone’s earcup that are fool-proof and one touch away. The SoundLink headphones II also feature voice prompts (available in 11 different languages) to tell you who’s calling, what device you’re connected to, and how much battery life you have left.

Wireless Quality
SoundLink over-ear headphones were built and tested in Bose labs to survive drops, bumps and grabs. Their design is inspired by the QC25 headphones, and they use impact-resistant materials, glass-filled nylon and corrosion-resistant stainless steel. Despite being packed with technology, they’re light and comfortable — weighing a mere 7 ounces — with soft ear cushions and a contoured headband. And they fold flat for storage in a matching case.

“We believe when you give up wires, you shouldn’t have to compromise audio performance or convenience,” said Bernice Cramer, general manager of Bose Wireless Headphones. “So, we did more than make the SoundLink II the best-sounding wireless headphones out there. We made them the most hassle-free wireless headphones, too. You’ll notice how great your music sounds first, and then you’ll notice that we solved all the little and big problems that no one else has. That’s the power of great engineering — it makes the entire streaming music experience that much better.”

Pricing and Availability
The new Bose SoundLink around-ear wireless headphones II are available in black or white for $279.95, beginning September 2, 2015.

The Bose SoundLink on-ear wireless headphones will remain available for $249.95.
