Bose is preparing to launch new open fit headphones, the Bose Open Sport Earbuds. In addition, the manufacturer has updated its previous models to allow sound volume management.
Bose has long been on the sidelines in the field of true wireless headphones. After the release of the Bose SoundSport Free in 2018, it took two years before the American manufacturer launched new models, with the QuietComfort Earbuds and the Sport Earbuds.
Now, it seems that the pace is picking up at Bose. As spotted by the American site The Verge, the firm seems to be preparing a new pair of completely wireless headphones, the Bose Sport Open Earbuds. These have been identified within a certification with the FCC, the American communications authority. Enough to discover photos of the headphones.
As their name suggests, the Sport Open Earbuds would not be in-ear headphones, but would adopt an open format, without any tips that fit into the ear canal. A way to reduce passive insulation to be more aware of your surroundings when running outdoors. In addition, they would benefit from a design in the ear, so as to offer a good support even in exercise. A button would be present on the lower part of the headphones. In addition, it seems that Bose has not planned a charging case, but a simple base with two magnetic hooks, like what can be found for connected watches. For now, it is still unclear when Bose intends to officially present these new Sport Open Earbuds.
Updated Sport Earbuds and QC Earbuds to handle volume
In addition to these headphones that may be released soon, Bose has also decided to update its noise-canceling true wireless headphones, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds, as well as its sports headphones, the Bose Sport Earbuds. This update, which is installed thanks to l’application Bose Music, addresses one of the main shortcomings of these headphones, namely the lack of volume management.
“On our new QuietComfort and Sport Earbuds, you can now swipe the right ear cup up and down to change the volume. All you have to do is activate the volume controls in the Settings menu, ”Bose said in the update notes for its application. Until now, the only controls allowed by these headphones have been pausing, changing tracks or modifying noise reduction, depending on the number or length of presses.
This update is already available for the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds and Sport Earbuds.
