After debuting its first attempt at noise-masking earbuds to wear overnight in 2018, Bose is back today with a second iteration. The new Sleepbuds II deliver plenty of upgrades compared to its predecessor, and it looks to tackle the battery issues that ultimately lead to the first generation being discontinued. But there’s also a new design and other alterations this time around as well. Head below for all the details on the new Bose Sleepbuds II, as well as information on pricing and availability.
Bose has been a dominant player in the audio market for a long time now. The company has a variety of beloved products, but few can rival the popularity of its QuietComfort lineup. For many, they’ve served as the gold standard alongside Sony’s XM series. Until now, Bose has always steered clear of the gaming market, but that has changed. An all-new Bose gaming headset has debuted and it lets QuietComfort 35 II live on. Continue reading to learn more.
At the end of August, we saw rumors circulating that Bose was primed and ready to launch new smart glasses thanks to an FCC filing. Well, today, Bose launched three new Frames offering unique designs that each have their own style. From the Frames Tempo, that delivers a design engineered specifically for outdoor workouts, to the Tenor and Soprano that are built to be used every day, you’ll enjoy the Open Ear Audio technology that Bose is so well-known for.
Today Bose is expanding its stable of home theater audio accessories with an all-new AirPlay 2-enabled offering. The Soundbar 300 debuts with a compelling feature set for the price to take on other mid-ranged competitors from brands like Sonos and more. Head below for all the details on Bose Soundbar 300, including pricing and pre-order information.
Despite the fact that Bose appears to have largely given up on Frames, a fresh FCC listing leads us to potentially think otherwise. It showcases what could be a new take on its AR-focused wearables. We spent time wearing Bose Frames and came away impressed with its audio capabilities but somewhat underwhelmed by the company’s implementation of augmented reality. Could the company have come up with a new approach to make Bose Frames 2 a worthwhile venture? Continue reading to learn more.

Today Bose officially confirmed that it would be stepping into the wearable business with a pair of new Augmented Reality glasses fit for consumers. The new audio-based Frames sunglasses offer a different take on face-worn devices. Bose announced that it was working on a pair of AR wearables earlier in the year.
Back in March the audio company committed itself to releasing an AR-equipped wearable, but there wasn’t much in the way of details. Or even if the product would see a wide-spread release. Now to close out the year, Bose has debuted its new Frames.
Bose has today announced its latest smart speakers, or more specifically, one smart speaker and two smart soundbars. With Alexa voice control built-in, support coming for Google Assistant, and AirPlay 2 arriving next year, Bose is looking to better compete with Amazon, Google, and Apple.
Bose took to crowdfunding site Indiegogo late last year in a somewhat odd move for the iconic audio company. It was looking for testers on a new set of Noise-Masking Sleepbuds designed to help you, as the name suggests, get a better night’s rest. In fact, the company ended up selling about 3,000 pairs of prototypes to a lucky few, but now it looks like the Noise-Making Sleepbuds are going prime time.

Today, Bose announced a series of new audio products and software enhancements to its SoundTouch Wi-Fi music line. Not only are we getting hardware in the form of new one-piece and home theater/stereo systems, but also enhanced app and music service support.
The previously European-only Deezer music service made its way to the Sonos platform last month, and now it will be joining Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora on Bose systems. The Bose mobile app updates come in the way of simplified mobile set-ups, enhanced song search and customizable frequency control among other things.
Head below for more details on the new app integration and what Bose calls “the most comprehensive Wi-Fi music system line available” with as many as 10 new SoundTouch Wi-Fi music systems:
It weighs just 1.25 pounds, and measures 5” wide, 2.1” deep and 5.3” high to fit easily into a handbag, knapsack or the palm of your hand. Bose combined exclusive dual-opposing passive radiators with two high-efficiency transducers for full-range sound, including deep, low-note performance. With its size and performance, the SoundLink Color speaker is a small wonder, making out-loud listening undeniably portable, powerful and fun.
The SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones deliver all the audio performance of a Bose wired headphone. Bose Active Equalization and TriPort technology combine for smoother, more balanced sound. Mid-high frequencies are natural, and low-frequencies are detailed and full. Yet, there are no cords or cables, so you can take calls, or enjoy a video, movie or music freely.The headphones let you hear and be heard, wherever you are. A new two-microphone system rejects distractions like wind, so callers can hear what you’re saying more, and the sounds around you less.
The Soundlink Headphones are on sale today and the speaker begins shipping September 25th.

The QC 15s are considered by their maker as “the best Bose around-ear headphones, period.” That is a bold statement from a company that makes critically-acclaimed audio gear and right now you can pick them up from Amazon for just $269, their lowest price ever. This deal matches the recent Apple Store promotion but is a bit better thanks to Amazon Prime benefits and potential tax savings at the time of purchase.
The Bose Quiet Comfort 15 headphones feature a comfortable around-the-ear fit, remote / mic with full compatibility for Apple devices, and an average battery life of 25 hours on two AAA batteries. Perhaps the most important feature of these headphones is the ability to reduce noise across a wide spectrum of frequencies. Bose details how they are able to achieve this:
Within every pair of QC15 headphones, advanced electronics use microphones inside and outside each earcup to sense the sounds around you-and reduce the noise. Proprietary ear cushion technology blocks some of the noise before it even reaches your ears. Together, these Bose innovations add up to a more enjoyable listening experience.
Reviewers tend to agree with Bose that these headphones are amazing, rating them an outstanding 4.5 stars.
