Review: Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II

The earbuds debut new technology uniquely tuned for a personalised performance

Divsha Bhat

The Bose QuietComfort (QC) Earbuds II are the company’s newest generation of wireless noise-cancelling earbuds. With Bose CustomTune sound calibration technology, QC Earbuds II intelligently personalise audio and noise cancellation performance to the unique shape of every ear.

The QC Earbuds II have an all-new design. Each bud is about one-third smaller than its predecessor, weighs just 6g, and they come in a pocketable charging case. And for further personalisation, they also include an eartip Fit Kit featuring a new two-piece system with interchangeable stability bands and eartips.

CustomTune for improved audio
CustomTune sound calibration technology makes its debut in the QC Earbuds II. This innovation is triggered every time the buds are removed from their case and placed in the ears. A proprietary tone is played, and a microphone inside the earbud measures the ear canal’s acoustic response. That information is then used to precisely tailor both audio and noise cancellation performance.

The QC Earbuds II use four microphones in each bud – one on the inside and three on the outside – to sense, measure and send unwanted noise to a proprietary electronic chip loaded with an exclusive algorithm.

New eartip Fit Kit
A Bose Fit Kit included with the QC Earbuds II supplies three sizes of eartips and three sizes of stability bands – allowing for up to nine customisation options for each bud. Advanced materials and manufacturing techniques keep the stability bands and eartips soft and compliant, yet durable and easy to change.

Compatibility, connectivity and battery life
The QC Earbuds II are compatible with both Apple and Android devices. They feature improved voice pickup enabled by an updated noise removal algorithm and include Bluetooth 5.3 capability, have an IPX4 rating for sweat and water resistance, and work with a mobile device’s built-in voice assistant. The buds offer up to six hours of battery life with three additional charges provided by the case. The case can fully charge the buds in one hour, while a quick 20-minute charge provides up to two hours of playback. The case itself fully recharges in three hours via USB-C.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II are available in the UAE in triple black colour for Dhs1,199. A soapstone colour variant will also be available later this year.
