QuietComfort® 25 headphones are re-engineered to sound better, be more comfortable and easier to take with you. Put them on, and suddenly everything changes. Your music is deep, powerful and balanced, and so quiet that every note sounds clearer. Even air travel becomes enjoyable, as engine roar gently fades away. No matter how noisy the world is, it’s just you and your music—or simply peace and quiet.
We completely redesigned our industry-leading headphones, with higher-quality materials and finishes. They’re lightweight, and ear cups rotate even more for a better fit. The headband sits closer to your head, with luxurious suede-like material underneath for extra comfort. If the AAA battery runs out, you can still enjoy music without noise reduction. And the ear cups pivot to fit in a compact case that’s easy to carry.
QC®25 headphones let you focus on what matters—your music, movies and videos. And block out what you don’t want to hear. Like a crowded city street. Cabin noise inside an airplane. Or a busy office. Advanced noise reduction technology and unique electronics make it happen. Even the ear cushions give you an extra level of quiet by sealing out the world around you.
Many of our engineers are also musicians, with a passion for music. So when you wear these headphones, you’ll hear ringing guitars. Soaring vocals as the chorus kicks in. Deep bass and crisp drums drive the beat forward. Bose® Active EQ and TriPort® technology deliver performance so compelling, you’ll want to listen for hours. And the fit’s designed so you can.
Our noise cancelling headphones are designed specifically for use with your iPhone and other Apple devices, so the inline microphone/remote puts music and call controls at your fingertips. Many features are also compatible with today's most popular phones.
Do QC®25 headphones use batteries?
Yes. QC®25 headphones run on a single AAA battery, included in the box. You can expect an average of 35 hours of use per battery.
Can I listen to music even if the battery has run out?
Yes. QC®25 headphones are still able to play audio if the battery is depleted. Without power, however, noise cancelling and Active EQ, which electronically provides more lifelike audio reproduction, are disabled. These technologies need power to operate.
Which Apple devices are compatible with QC®25 headphones?
QC®25 headphones are designed specifically for use with iPhone and other Apple devices. The inline microphone/remote puts all controls at your fingertips. Switch easily between music and calls, and adjust volume, play or pause, skip songs, fast forward or rewind, even change playlists.
Do QC®25 headphones work with other smartphones?
Yes. These headphones are compatible with most Android, Windows and BlackBerry smartphones. Many features of the inline microphone/remote will work with today’s most popular phones. You can also use QC®25 headphones with mobile and home audio devices that have a standard 3.5 mm jack.
Are QC®25 headphones waterproof?
No. They are not designed to be used in wet environments.
Are these Bluetooth® audio headphones?
No. QC®25 headphones are not Bluetooth®-enabled, but they can be used without a cable for noise cancellation. For wireless convenience and Bose® quality sound, please consider our wireless headphones.
Why is an extra adapter included with QC®25 headphones?
You can use the airline adapter plug to connect to in-flight entertainment systems that have dual output connectors.
