Bose announces a software upgrade that enhances the performance and features of its QuietComfort® Earbuds. It combines the power of Bose AWARE Mode with revolutionary ActiveSenseTM technology to allow the world to be heard clearly and naturally—reducing noisy distractions as they occur and return to full transparency once they have passed. It also includes new modes for specialized activities, fast gratification with Spotify Tap, audio preference tweaks, and easier multi-device connections—all while keeping the legendary noise canceling and sound quality of QC Earbuds. The 2.0.7 software update is now available in the Bose Music app, compatible with iOS and Android, and free for both existing and new users.
New ActiveSense, New Modes Keep You More in the Moment
The QC Earbuds now allow you to be more present at the moment. There are still noise-canceling levels ranging from 0 to 10, but with the software update, the highest and lowest are now automatic defaults, with the highest and lowest renamed for clarity: 10 is QUIET for maximum noise cancellation; 0 is AWARE to hear yourself, others, and everything else as if your ears were empty. This effect is amplified when combined with Bose ActiveSense technology, which combines digital signal processing and QC microphones to allow ambient noise to travel through the earbuds, only quieting the environment when unpleasant sounds occur and only for as long as they last. There are no manual modifications for hearing your music or podcast on a city bus or passing train or for hearing your surroundings after they’ve passed. It all happens in real-time, no matter where you are or where you go.
The Bose Music app now allows you to adjust noise cancellation levels to new modes for certain activities or places, such as Commute, Focus, Home, Music, Outdoor, Relax, Run, Walk, Work, and Workout enabling “always-on” noise cancellation. Two may be set as shortcuts, allowing you to access QUIET, AWARE, and your settings with double-taps on the left earbud, with audio cues confirming the mode you’re in as you toggle and switch.
Spotify Tap, New Audio Controls for Music Lovers
Spotify Tap, which gives Spotify users immediate access to their last session or tailored playlists with a simple tap and holds on the left earbud, has been integrated for music enthusiasts. Selectable EQ, which is also new in the app, may now be used to change bass, mid-, and treble frequencies.
Multiple Devices, Fewer Steps
The 2.0.7 software update increases the compatibility of QC Earbuds with a variety of devices. They remember the past seven connections and easily switch between them without having to disconnect manually first.
