Should I Buy Bose’s New Wireless Earbuds?
According to Gizmodo, the QuietComfort Earbuds are noise-canceling buds, with StayHear Max earbud tips that stop outside noise from entering your ears. The new buds also have 11 levels of noise cancellation. You can adjust the StayHear Max tips to get the noise-canceling level you want.
In terms of battery, the QuietComfort buds give you around six hours of listening on a single charge. Extend that to 18 hours with the charging case. On the other hand, the AirPods Pro give you five hours on a single charge. If you use the charging case, you can get 24 hours of listening time on the AirPods.
Like the QuietComfort buds, the Sport Earbuds also use the StayHear Max tips. If you’re an active person, these buds are for you. The StayHear tips keep the buds in your ear while you do a long-distance run or just work out.
How Much Are These New Bose Earbuds?
The Sport Earbuds cost $179, while the QuietComfort buds cost $279. Stay ahead of the crowd by pre-ordering the buds starting Thursday, ahead of their official launch on September 29.
