Bose QuietComfort 25: Classic Noise-Cancelling Cans Finally Get an Update

By Mario Aguilar on at

Bose's noise-cancelling headphones are an iconic staple worn by the balding dude in business class. Finally the company is updating its classic QuietComfort 15 headphones, and ditching that stale grey design for something a little more attractive.

According to Bose, the £269.95 QuietComfort 25 headphones cancel more sound than before, and have improved active EQ for better sound. The information is a little thin, but what really jumps out at you is the new look, which is sleeker and more modern. For £269.95, you'll be able to customise the look of the headphones with "a nearly limitless combination of colours."

The QuietComofort 25s are available for pre-order today. They ship in November. We've always been fans of the Bose's QuietComfort line for their flat sound and comfortable fit. Still, in a world full of flashy headphones they're pretty drab. It's nice to see Bose try to keep up with the times, even if the new design remains pretty conservative. [Bose]
