Bose's new QuietComfort 45 is a small, but welcome upgrade to the QuietComfort 35 II

Bose has just introduced a new QuietComfort headset to its lineup. Named QuietComfort 45, the new headset will be an upgrade over its predecessor, offering improved battery life and voice isolation and two new listening modes to choose from: quiet, which turns on noise cancellation, and aware, to turn it back off.

Since the launch of the original QuietComfort 35, the popularity of Bose’s QuietComfort series has increased significantly, featuring some of the most popular wireless headsets out there. After the launch of the QC35, the company upgraded them and released the QuietComfort 35 II, which later received the gaming treatment to include a detachable microphone module.

Now, Bose is further upgrading the QuietComfort series with the new QuietComfort 45. Compared to its predecessors, the design remains mostly the same, with few changes. Some of these changes are the removal of soft materials and modifications to make the gaps between components feel smoother.

To better adapt to the environment, the Bose QuietComfort 45 has two listening modes. When quiet mode is enabled, the noise cancellation system kicks in, analyzing the outside noise and cancelling it. In aware mode, noise cancellation is turned off to offer full sound transparency.

Users may utilise the four buttons on the right earcup to turn on the device, manage volume, link via Bluetooth, answer and finish calls, play and pause music, and access virtual assistants. On the left earcup, there’s a button that allows you to choose between the two modes or silence the microphone.

When compared to the QC 35 II, battery life has increased to up to 24 hours. The headset must be charged for two hours to be fully charged, and a 15-minute charge can provide three hours of playback. A USB-C port is used to charge the headset. Another new feature coming with the QC45 is sharing noise cancellation on calls, isolating the user’s voice and avoiding outside noise from being picked up for clearer communication.
