New from Bose!


This month of September has been very productive for Bose! Indeed, no less than 10 references enrich the already well-stocked catalog of the American manufacturer (not counting the color variations). On the program: noise reduction headphones, wireless speakers, sound tray, iPod/iPhone dock…

A few days ago, these new products still had code names: Rainier, Champ, Edwin Refresh, or even Moonraker… Nothing should leak out! These new features are available today, and we propose to present them to you here, in brief.

Certainly the most anticipated of the lot, the replacement for the QC15 takes up the fundamentals of its elder, while offering higher quality materials. This new closed-type circumaural headphones Bose QuietComfort 25 is equipped with an active noise reduction system (Noise Cancelling), a microphone and a remote control specially designed for iPod/iPad/iPhone. The microphone + remote control pair can also work with many Android/Windows/BlackBerry devices. Available in Black or White finish.

Another helmet, another concept. the Bose SoundLink On-Ear takes advantage of a supra-auricular architecture, and above all, wireless. Equipped with Bluetooth technology, it exhibits a very successful look and finish. Bose announces a weight of 156 grams, or 40% less than the competition (according to Bose). Of course, the acoustic design of the headphones and the integrated active equalizer guarantee powerful sound, suitable for all musical genres. Special mention for the autonomy of 15 hours (full recharge via USB in less than 1.5 hours)!

Do you prefer in-ear headphones? You will be served! Bose gives us a good batch of them, with in mind, the new intra with hydrophobic coating dedicated to the practice of sport, the Bose SoundSport. Two versions are available: one dedicated to Samsung Galaxy tablet smartphones (Bose SoundSport for Samsung), and the other to iPod/iPad/iPhone (Bose SoundSport for Apple). In order to ensure good support in the ear canal, the Bose SoundSport in-ear headphones benefit from the famous StayHear tips. Available in several colors.

Let’s stay on the intra, with the range Bose SoundTrue In-Ear, also available in several versions: a model Bose SoundTrue standard (without microphone or remote control), a Bose SoundTrue for Samsung, and one Bose SoundTrue for Apple. We find on all versions StayHear tips in 3 sizes, a storage pouch, and a cable clip. We will also note its low weight of only 18.5 grams, and its invigorating sound. Available in several colors.

Bose is also launching a new version of its Solo sound tray, the Bose Solo 15. Our neighbors across the Atlantic have opted for a new TrueSpace DSP here, and for a different acoustic design, particularly with regard to the number or placement of the loudspeakers. The Bose Solo 15 sound tray also brings greater compatibility with TVs, by offering a wider base: you can now place most TVs up to 46-50 “and weighing less than 34 Kg. A universal remote control is even provided!

Still in Home Cinema, the American manufacturer presents its speaker system Bose CineMate 15. It consists of an ultra-compact soundbar barely 23 cm wide, and an amplified Acoustimass module. TrueSpace technology is once again in the game. We first appreciate the discretion of the system, but also its simplicity of installation, and the sound it broadcasts… Very interesting for such a compact system! It comes with all the necessary cables, as well as a universal remote control.

Bose is not abandoning iPod/iPhone docks, with the launch of a docking station Bose SoundDock XT with a very successful two-tone design. Plug&play, all you have to do is plug it into a power outlet and dock your iPhone to enjoy your music! The iPod/iPhone connector used is of the Lightning type, making the station suitable for the most recent Apple devices (iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, iPad Air, iPod 7G, etc.). Ultra compact, this SoundDock XT has a mini-jack input to connect any portable music player.

Let’s end this “new” chapter with a portable wireless speaker, the Bose SoundLink Color. Bluetooth compatible, it has an autonomy of 8 hours thanks to its rechargeable battery via USB (or via the supplied mains charger). You will also appreciate the volume control, start-up, pairing, source management keys… Everything you need for user-friendly use! It is available in 5 colors: Red, Mint, Blue, Black and White. Make your choice…
