Bose® keeps the noise out with the QuietComfort® 3
An inside look at Bose's patented Acoustic Noise Cancelling® technology.
You can't always control your surroundings, but great noise cancelling headphones can help you escape when background sounds get distracting. The Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones are powerful enough to neutralize the annoying hum of an aircraft while unleashing the sonic beauty of your music. These comfortable, lightweight headphones use Bose's patented Acoustic Noise Cancelling® technology to keep unwanted sounds at bay while delivering deep bass and rich detail. Slip away from your surroundings and into your favorite tunes.
Minimize external distractions so you can relax.
Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology
Bose's Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphone technology employs microphones in the earcups to monitor the difference between internal and external sound. A "correcting" signal is sent to each earcup to dramatically reduce unwanted background noise, keeping distractions at bay and allowing you to hear your music more clearly.
Control your iPhone® remotely
Own an iPhone? Keep it in your pocket without losing control. The QuietComfort 3 headphones come with two detachable cords, including one with an in-line three-button remote for use with your iPhone, iPod® or iPad®. Answer calls and control music playback — or adjust the volume for either — with the push of a button. Don't worry about dozing off and dropping your iPhone while listening on the plane. Keep it stowed away and let the remote take care of it.
Perfect for a long flight, noisy office or just relaxing at home, the QuietComfort 3 headphones feature cushioned, comfortable earcups, ensuring you can keep them on for hours. Even without music playing, the noise cancelling circuitry can be activated to block out the world so you can relax. The built-in battery provides up to 25 hours of listening or noise cancelling time and is easily rechargeable with the supplied wall charger. Take these headphones near and far by folding them up and stashing them in the zip-up carrying case for great sound on the go.
