Bose announces a software upgrade that enhances the performance and features of its QuietComfort® Earbuds.
It also includes new modes for specialized activities, fast gratification with Spotify Tap, audio preference tweaks, and easier multi-device connections—all while keeping the legendary noise canceling and sound quality of QC Earbuds.
It combines the power of Bose AWARE Mode with revolutionary ActiveSenseTM technology to allow the world to be heard clearly and naturally—reducing noisy distractions as they occur and return to full transparency once they have passed.
The 2.0.7 software update is now available in the Bose Music app, compatible with iOS and Android, and free for both existing and new users.
The QC Earbuds now keep you more in the moment. There are still noise cancelling levels ranging from 0-10, but with the software update, the highest and lowest are automatic defaults, both renamed for clarity: 10 is QUIET for maximum noise cancellation; 0 is AWARE to hear yourself, others, and everything else like there’s nothing in your ears.
New ActiveSense, New Modes Keep You More in the Moment
That benefit gets even better when paired with new Bose ActiveSense technology, which uses digital signal processing and the QC microphones to let surroundings pass through the earbuds, only quieting the world when harsh sounds occur, and only for as long as they last.
There are no manual adjustments to hear your music or podcast over a city bus or passing train — or hear your surroundings again when they’re gone. It all happens dynamically, wherever you are, wherever you go.
For “always on” noise cancellation, the Bose Music app now lets you match noise cancelling levels to new modes for specific activities or places: Commute, Focus, Home, Music, Outdoor, Relax, Run, Walk, Work, and Workout. Two can be added as shortcuts, so QUIET, AWARE, and your own personal choices are all accessible with double-taps on the left earbud, supported by voice prompts that confirm the mode you’re in as you toggle and switch. Spotify Tap, New Audio Controls for Music Lovers
For music lovers, Spotify Tap has been integrated, giving Spotify users instant access to their last session or personalized playlists with a simple tap and hold — also on the left earbud. To adjust bass, mid-, and treble frequencies, selectable EQ is now an option — also new in the app. Multiple Devices, Fewer Steps
The 2.0.7 software update improves how QC Earbuds work with multiple devices. They remember the last seven connections and seamlessly change from one to the other without the need to manually disconnect first. About the QuietComfort Earbuds
The QuietComfort Earbuds were introduced in September 2020, setting an entirely new standard in the category for noise cancellation, audio quality, and all-day comfort and stability. For content, calls, or tuning-out, QC Earbuds redefined what’s possible from a tiny, personal audio wearable. They combine soft-yet-tight StayHear™ Max eartips to physically block sound with multiple microphones that sense, measure, and send any remaining distractions to a proprietary electronic chip — loaded with an exclusive algorithm.
Together with micro transducers, the system responds with a precise, equal, and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond. The result is dramatic, unmatched, and creates a blank canvas for listening to music with depth and detail previously unavailable.
