Bose debuts the next generation of QuietComfort headphones, the QuietComfort 25

Bose has just announced the launch of the long-awaited successors to their legendary QuietComfort 15 headphones – the new QuietComfort 25 headphones.

Sean Garrett, vice president of the Bose Noise Reduction Technology Group says: “We weren’t going to replace the QC15 headphones unless we had something that was better and different – and the QC25 is both.” Well, it certainly seems that way as the QuietComfort 25 features greater noise reduction, more lifelike audio, a striking new design, and a new earcup pivot that allows it to fold up smaller.

Three decades of research have been put into the QuietComfort 25, with a more finely-tuned Active EQ for a smoother frequency response across the entire spectrum of sound, regardless of listening level. TriPort technology delivers a lower noise floor, reducing the hiss you might find on other active noise-cancelling headphones while delivering, deep, detailed bass. Bose says that the ideal is to perfectly recreate a live performance, so all the audio-tuning has been made to recreate recordings more naturally, regardless of genre.

Meanwhile, microphones have been placed both inside and outside the earcup to sense and measure unwanted sounds. These measurements are then sent to an electronic chip which calculates and produces more precise equal and opposite signals to cancel out those sounds – all within miliseconds! Unlike the QuietComfort 15, the QuietComfort 25 operates even when the batteries are drained, and a single AAA battery is good for up to 35 hours of use. An inline mic and remote is also supplied so you can take and make calls with supported smartphones.

The QuietComfort 25 now sport a fresh new look that Bose describes as “authentic, modern, and minimal”, with a proprietary headband design that allows the QuietComfort 25 to sit closer to the head. The headband pad uses an engineered fabric more commonly found in high-end automotive applications, while the earcups feature a soft-touch TPE bumper with cast zinc pivot, making them comfortable and light.

The new QuietComfort 25 headphones are available for pre-order online at the Atlas e-store or at the Atlas showrooms for S$529 starting today. Fulfilment for pre-orders will be on 30 September, Thursday.

Also, the first 100 customers to place their pre-orders will receive a complimentary $50 Atlas Sound & Vision voucher!
