Bose is expected to announce the QuietComfort Earbuds II earphones soon, and their design has been outed in a series of images published by WinFuture. The renders show the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II look a little different to the original QuietComfort Earbuds, with a design that will likely stick out from the ear significantly less.
The official-looking images supplied by leaker Roland Quandt suggest that the QuietComfort Earbuds 2 could arrive in a few weeks time as the successor to the company’s highly-rated original QuietComfort Earbuds. Although there’s no official announcement from Bose just yet about a QuietComfort Earbuds successor.
Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II Design & Specifications
In the QuietComfort Earbuds II, the silicone support sits more directly on the earpiece body. The shape of the earpieces themselves hasn’t changed dramatically, but the fresh style may make it seem as if it has. A flattened, more clearly delineated outer part gives more a sense of there being a section that points down from the main body.
The leak highlights that the QuietComfort Earbuds II will offer up to six hours of battery life on a single charge, but it’s not clear if this battery life spec is with ANC or not. Based on the battery life rating for the previous model, we believe that the QuietComfort Earbuds II will last up to six hours with ANC off unless Bose offers significantly larger batteries in the earbuds.
Presumably, this manufacturer battery life estimate only applies with ANC disabled. Also, the QuietComfort Earbuds II feature touch-sensitive areas for making multi-touch gestures. Moreover, the earbuds will have equaliser support via the Bose app, available on Android and iOS.
The company should offer the QuietComfort Earbuds II in two colors: black and white. WinFuture claims the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II will cost $299, $20 more than the original version, and that the earpieces’ batteries will last up to six hours off a charge. Bose will likely announce the earbuds in the coming weeks and we’ll make sure to share more details as soon as they become available.
