Separate the noise from the music
Leave the noise behind, and get the most from your music. QuietComfort 3 headphones offer a proven combination of Bose noise reduction and audio performance with a comfortable on-ear fit. These award-winning headphones deliver clear, lifelike sound, making listening a pleasure just about anywhere.
Advanced noise reduction and a comfortable fit let you enjoy hours of easy listening.
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 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.
Take calls. Take control
QC3 headphones come with a cable customized for select Apple products. A three-button remote and microphone let you take calls on your iPhone and control music functions on other Apple devices. You can also purchase a mobile kit that lets your QC headphones work with other cell phones, too.
QC3 headphones make an ideal travel companion, effectively reducing the noise around you to create a more tranquil environment.
Fine traveling companions
QC3 headphones come with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and convenient wall charger. You can expect 25 hours of use from a fully charged battery, with a lifespan of approximately 500 charging cycles. An airline adapter plug and protective carrying case are also included. Earcups fold flat for easy storage in the slim case.
