TL;DR
  • A new leak has revealed an updated design for the next generation of Bose’s premium noise-cancelling earbuds.
  • The QuietComfort Earbuds II could come with six hours of battery life.
  • The leak claims the QuietComfort Earbuds II will sell for $299.

Back in 2020, Bose released its premium noise-cancelling QuietComfort Earbuds. A lot of time has passed since then and we’ve been patiently waiting to see what Bose would do next with this line. Thanks to recent leaks, we now may know what’s in store for the QuietComfort Earbuds II.

Based on the images obtained by known industry leaker Roland Quandt (via WinFuture), the new iteration of the QuietComfort Earbuds will come in two colors: white and black. It also appears the earbuds will have a slightly different look than their predecessor while maintaining a similar form factor.

According to WinFuture, these new earbuds will be significantly more compact and will protrude from the ear less this time around. A welcomed change as the first generation is large compared to many of today’s earbuds.

 

In addition to the images, the leak offers details suggesting that battery life should be around six hours. It’s unknown if this number accounts for active noise cancellation. And, as usual for most wireless earbuds these days, the QuietComfort Earbuds II will come with a charging case that uses a USB-C port.

As for price, the leak claims that the QuietComfort Earbuds II will be available in the next few weeks for $299. With that price tag, Bose is immediately putting itself up against the likes of Apple and Sony. That being said, if the price range is to be believed, that would make Bose’s earbuds about $50 more expensive than Sony’s WF-1000XM4 and Apple’s AirPods Pro.
