Bose is seemingly preparing to launch a new pair of QuietComfort-branded noise-canceling wireless headphones. Called QuietComfort 45, the device has reached the FCC for necessary approval ahead of launch. It will arrive as the successor to the company’s popular QuietComfort 35 headphones launched way back in 2016.
The FCC filing includes live images of the Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones. They show an identical design to the previous model, which isn’t really a bad thing as the QC 35 has a very comfortable and lightweight design. The new device also gets the same set of physical control buttons, positioned similarly. After all, touch controls aren’t always as responsive as hardware controls. Touch controls might help streamline the design, but for big over-the-ear headphones, that doesn’t matter much.
Bose is though replacing the old school micro USB port with the modern USB Type-C port for good. The fact that QC 35 featured a micro USB port shows how long it has been since it arrived.
There might also be several other changes on the inside. Of course, the QC 45 will retain ANC (active noise cancellation). But apart from that, no information is available about other key features and specifications. The device will be competing against the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM4. So perhaps it’ll introduce something like the Speak-To-Chat feature found on Sony’s offering. It automatically pauses music and turns off NFC when you enter a conversation with someone. Bose could also improve in other areas, including adding more noise-canceling modes.
Bose isn’t done with the QuietComfort lineup
Following the launch of the QuietComfort 35 in June 2016, Bose launched the QuietComfort 35 II in October 2017. It was a minor upgrade that added a dedicated Google Assistant button. Though the company kept selling the headphones, it didn’t launch a follow-up model, suggesting it’s the end of the QuietComfort lineup.
In the meantime, the Massachusetts-based audio brand launched a more premium Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 in 2019. And while the QC 35 existed as an affordable alternative, there was no hope of getting a newer model in this series. But years later, here we are. Seemingly months away from seeing a brand new pair of QuietComfort noise-canceling wireless headphones from Bose.
There’s no information available about the launch date or price of the upcoming Bose headphones. But with the device already appearing in the FCC database, it might not be very long before it goes official. You can expect to hear more about the Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones in the coming weeks and months.
