Bose has launched the Bose QuietComfort 45 noise-canceling headphones. They are the successors to the QuietComfort 35 II, which were launched almost four years ago. While the company did introduce the Bose Noise Cancelling 700 headphones last year, they weren’t true successors to the QuietComfort 35 II. Compared to their predecessors, the Bose QuietComfort 45 offer a lot of improvements, including USB-C charging, a new mic setup for better voice pickup, and up to 24 hours of battery life. However, the design of the newer generation headphones has not changed a lot in terms of looks as they still resemble the QuietComfort 35 II.

These headphones compete with the likes of the Jabra Elite 85H, Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless, and the Sony WH-1000XM4.

Bose QuietComfort 45 Pricing, Availability

Bose QuietComfort 45 is priced at $329.95 (₹24,000). These headphones will be available in the US starting 23 September, 2021. Pre-booking can be done via and select retailers. The headphones come in black and white colour variants. As of now, Bose has not revealed the global availability and launch date of its new wireless headphones.

Bose QuietComfort 45 Specifications, Features


The Bose QuietComfort 45 offers a design that is similar to the QuietComfort 35 II in terms of looks. However, the company says that it has changed the joints and other internal components to reduce gaps and to improve build quality. The headphones are equipped with physical buttons that let you adjust the volume and control the music playback. The headphone also has a new TriPort acoustic architecture which lets you listen to deeper sounds with consistent bass. The QuietComfort 45 offers active noise cancelation in two modes: Aware and Quiet. The Aware mode can be activated with a button on the left earcup. The Quiet mode offers full noise canceling, whereas the Aware Mode lets in some of your surrounding noise.

The microUSB port has been replaced by a USB Type-C port. However, Bose still continues to offer a 2.5mm audio jack instead of the more universal 3.5 mm jack. Moreover, there is no 2.5mm cable in the box and you have to purchase one separately. You can adjust the audio settings and equalizer using the Bose Music app on Android and iOS. Connectivity-wise, the headphones feature a Bluetooth 5.1 chip. The QC 45 can last up to 24 hours of battery life on a single charge. The headphones can be charged in 2.5 hours. With the 15-minute charge, the QC 45 can deliver up to 2.5 hours of playtime.
