QC3 headphones feature Bose® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® technology to electronically identify, then dramatically reduce, the noise around you. You're left with the music you love—or the simple serenity you desire. Proprietary signal processing and audio reproduction technology also provide lifelike performance across the full range of sound—including deep low tones—from small and lightweight on-ear headphones.
Create a comfortable escape
Think of your noisy office, or the bustling activity in train stations and other public places. At the flip of a switch, that background noise is reduced to a whisper. That's when the high quality sound these headphones provide becomes even more apparent. You'll hear more of your music—without having to turn up your music. And the soft-cushioned, easy-on-the-ears fit lets you listen comfortably for hours.
Hear the difference for yourself
Wear QC®3 headphones when you fly, and you'll notice a dramatic reduction in engine noise the moment you turn them on. And when it's time for some music, simply plug the cable into your portable player, tablet or the inflight entertainment system. The cable fits directly into most any portable device.
Take calls. Take control.
QC3 headphones come with an additional cable customized for select Apple® products. A three-button remote and inline microphone let you take calls on your iPhone and manage music on other Apple devices. You can control volume, track selection and voice applications, plus easily switch between calls and music. You can also purchase a mobile kit that lets your QC headphones work with other cell phones, too.
QC3 rechargeable li-ion battery
A rechargeable lithium-ion battery and convenient wall charger are included with your headphones. You can expect 25 hours of use from a fully charged battery.
QC3 fold-flat earcups
Fold-flat earcups rotate 90 degrees for easy storage and portability in the included case.
