Our commitment to you

Bose takes pride in designing each product with the goal of providing the highest-accuracy musical performance possible in its price range. We strive to reproduce musical sounds as closely as possible to the original performance—and to avoid flashy sounds such as those associated with accentuated bass and treble frequencies.

Our reputation rests on our steadfast pursuit of this policy in researching, designing and building our products. We use only the highest quality parts and the latest assembly and quality control techniques to ensure the reliability and long life of our products.

Bose supports research that continually gives rise to new technologies for improving sound reproduction. When you purchase any product from Bose, we encourage you to compare it, as we do, to competitive products for musical accuracy. We believe this process will enhance your appreciation of the product you select.

Privacy for the Bose® payment plan

The Privacy Policy for the Bose® payment plan applies to current and former individual United States customers of Bose Corporation who have financed their purchase with us. Please note that we may amend this Policy at any time‚ and will inform you of any changes to this Policy as required by law.

Bose product limited warranty

Bose products purchased by consumers directly from Bose carry our limited warranty:

Who is covered:

This warranty is extended only to the original end-use purchaser or the person receiving the product as a gift, and shall not be extended to any other person or transferee.

What is covered/For how long:

Unless a different warranty period is stated in the owner's guide provided with your Bose product, for a period of 1 year (2 years EU) [5 years for any non-powered speakers that may be incorporated into this product] from the date of retail purchase by the original end-use purchaser, Bose warrants that this product, when delivered to you in new condition, in original packaging, from a Bose authorized reseller and used in normal conditions, is free from any defects in manufacturing, materials and workmanship.

What is not covered:

This warranty does not cover defects resulting from improper or unreasonable use or maintenance; failure to follow operating instructions; accident; excess moisture; insects; lightning; power surges; connections to improper voltage supply; unauthorized alteration or modification of original condition; damages caused by inadequate packing or shipping procedures; loss of, damage to or corruption of stored data; damages caused by use with non-Bose products; product that requires modification or adaptation to enable it to operate in any country other than the country for which it was designed, manufactured, approved and/or authorized, or repair of products damaged by these modifications; and products purchased from unauthorized dealers.

What we will do:

During the warranty period, we will, at our sole option, repair or replace (using new or refurbished replacement parts) any defective parts within a reasonable period of time and free of charge.

What we will not do:

Pay shipping, insurance or transportation charges from you to us, or any import fees, duties and taxes.

What you must do to obtain Limited Warranty Service:

Return product, with proof of purchase from an authorized Bose dealer, using the following procedures:

  1. Contact the Bose organization in your country/region (visit Global.Bose.com for Bose contact information in your country/region) for specific return and shipping instructions;
  2. Label and ship the product, freight prepaid, to the address provided by the Bose organization in your country; and
  3. Place any necessary return authorization number prominently on the outside of the carton. Cartons not bearing a return authorization number, where required, will be refused.

Other conditions:

THE PROVISIONS OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY ARE IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, WRITTEN OR ORAL, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. BOSE CORPORATION’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ACTUAL PURCHASE PRICE PAID BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCT. IN NO EVENT SHALL BOSE BE LIABLE FOR LOSS OF, DAMAGE TO OR CORRUPTION OF STORED DATA, OR FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES HOWSOEVER CAUSED INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY, AND ANY COSTS OF RECOVERING, PROGRAMMING OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA STORED IN OR USED WITH YOUR BOSE PRODUCT.

This warranty is void if the label bearing the serial number has been removed or defaced.

Other legal rights:

This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you also may have other rights that vary from state to state or country to country. Some places do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

Bose performance guarantee

Try your Bose product risk free. We're so confident you'll be delighted with it, we give you 30 days* to make sure it's right for you. If, for any reason, you're not satisfied with your purchase from Bose, simply return it within the trial period for a full refund. That's the Bose performance guarantee.
*45 days for L1® systems.

Be sure it's Bose

The only way to be sure you're buying a genuine Bose product is to buy directly from Bose or a Bose authorized dealer. Bose products purchased by consumers directly from Bose or an authorized dealer, whether online, by telephone, from a catalog or in a store are genuine and carry the Bose limited warranty.

Buying from unauthorized dealers can be risky. Unless the dealer provides a receipt showing purchase from an authorized dealer, the products carry no warranty from Bose. Moreover, products purchased from unauthorized dealers may be counterfeit or stolen goods, and if you attempt to resell such products, you may be subject to significant civil liability and/or criminal penalties.

Watch out for counterfeit products

There are growing numbers of counterfeit products in the marketplace. Bose has become aware of sales of counterfeits of most types of Bose® headphones, including IE2, MIE2/MIE2i, SIE2/SIE2i, QuietComfort® 3 and 15, OE2/OE2i, AE2/AE2i, and Bluetooth® headsets, as well as SoundLink® Mini speakers and older model in-ear and on-ear headphones and QuietComfort 2 headphones by unauthorized sellers on popular auction and other e-commerce websites, and in flea markets. In some cases, sellers located in China claim to be selling genuine "OEM" headphones, but these products are fake. Typically, these products are sold at lower prices than those offered by Bose and its authorized dealers, but the prices are often not low enough to cause buyers to suspect that the products are counterfeit. The counterfeit products do not meet the high standards of performance found in genuine Bose products.

The counterfeit products and their packaging are extremely close in appearance to genuine Bose products, but they do not meet the high standards of performance found in genuine Bose products. Counterfeiters go to great lengths to make their products look like genuine products. They include warranty registration cards in the packaging, and apply serial numbers to the products that copy genuine Bose serial numbers to make them look authentic. They have even copied the hologram sticker that Bose applies to its products to assist us in identifying fake products. It is extremely difficult to distinguish fake products from the real ones. If you believe that you may have purchased counterfeit Bose products, we encourage you to contact Report_Counterfeits@bose.com so that we may be able to assist you in determining whether the product is counterfeit.

Headphones and headsets are the Bose products that we have seen counterfeited most often, but we have also encountered counterfeit speakers, such as 101, 301, and 502A models, and, occasionally, the BOSE trademark is applied to products that are unlike any that we currently produce, such as karaoke microphones. In all cases, your best protection against buying fakes is to purchase from an authorized dealer.

Three ways to protect yourself from fraud:

  1. Buy direct from Bose, either online, by telephone or in Bose retail stores. Bose.com is the official Bose Corporation website for residents of the United States and its territories. If you wish to purchase a product now, be confident that you will receive a genuine Bose product.
  2. Look for the official Bose Authorized Dealer badge featured on some retailers' websites.* The badge links to a window explaining the advantages of buying from a Bose authorized dealer. The window's URL (in the address bar) should begin with "www.bose.com" to be valid. 
  3. Contact us to inquire whether a dealer is authorized. If you reside in the US, call 1-800-999-2673, or email us. If you reside outside the US, click here to find your country's contact information. A Bose representative will check the name of the dealer or website from which you are considering a purchase and let you know whether it's an authorized Bose dealer.

If you would like to report a suspected counterfeit Bose product, please send an email to report_counterfeits@bose.com. Bose appreciates your assistance in preventing the distribution of counterfeit products.

*Not all Bose authorized dealers display the badge at this time.

This privacy policy is specific to Bose Corporation customer operations in the US. As used within the context of this policy, "personal information" means personally identifiable non-public information—such as your name or email address—that is not otherwise publicly available. Answers to survey questions, comments and suggestions that do not identify you are not personal information, and Bose is free to use and distribute this information without obligation. However, any personal information you submit to us in connection with such surveys, comments or suggestions is subject to this privacy policy.

Online tracking

In order to make improvements to Bose.com and your online shopping experience, we automatically receive and record information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, Bose cookie information (see below), software and hardware attributes, and the pages you visit. To do this, we may use applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.

For example, we use "cookies" on our website. A cookie is a small amount of data, often including an anonymous unique identifier, sent to your browser from a website. If your browser's preferences are set to accept it, the cookie is stored on your computer's hard drive. Your browser will permit a website to access the cookies it has sent to you, but not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

Our cookies provide information that makes it easier for you to use our website. They enable you to make purchases on Bose.com and move uninterrupted between site areas. They collect information about your use of our site, your computer's operating system and browser type, your Internet service provider, domain name and IP address, and the website visited before our site and the link used to leave our site.

You can also set your browser to block cookies, or to notify you when you receive a cookie, allowing you to decide whether or not to accept it.

We may also use an application known as a "web beacon." A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be placed on a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include personal information. We may use web beacons, in conjunction with cookies, for a number of reasons, including:

  • To assist in tracking and analyzing advertising effectiveness

Specifically, a third-party provider may collect information to target some Bose advertisements. For information about this practice, including privacy and confidentiality, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website.

The use of any applications utilized by third parties and affiliates is subject to their own privacy policies, not the Bose.com privacy policy. If you prefer to prevent third parties and affiliates from setting and accessing cookies on your computer, and using web beacons in conjunction with them, you may set your browser to block cookies. Additionally, you may remove yourself from the targeted advertising of companies within the Network Advertising Initiative by opting out here.

Security on Bose.com

Bose Corporation realizes that security is a primary concern for our online customers.

The following is an overview of some of the security measures we take to protect personal information you submit on Bose.com during transactions and certain other submissions.

We use Akamai and Cybertrust digital security technology on certain Bose.com pages to help safeguard personal information. The Akamai site certificate icon appears on every Bose.com page that has a digital site certificate.

To view the site certificate, see instructions in your browser's "Help" section.

Encryption

We use encryption technology to facilitate the transmission of your information on all Bose.com pages that have an Akamai site certificate icon, and we only accept orders from browsers that communicate through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, with at least 128-bit key length encryption.

Passwords

When you create an account on Bose.com, you'll be asked to create a password. Your Bose password is case sensitive and must follow these guidelines:

  • Use a minimum of six characters

We recommend using a random combination of letters, numbers and cases to provide added protection for your personal information (e.g., Adg561z).

Once you've created an account, Bose stores information such as your name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number(s) and email address. Your password allows you to bypass re-entering this information each time you place an order on Bose.com.

Please note: You do not need to create an account to make a purchase on Bose.com.

Credit and debit card safety

When you place an order on Bose.com, your credit or debit card number is encrypted when transmitted and stored. Encryption is used for submission of credit and debit card numbers on every Bose.com page with a digital site certificate.

To verify, you can view the site certificate before submitting your credit or debit card number. For instructions on viewing the site certificate, see your browser's "Help" section.

Other personal information you submit may also be encrypted when being transmitted with the goal of protecting its confidentiality. See Encryption above for details.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act disclosure

Bose Corporation is dedicated to delivering products through a direct supply chain that respects human rights and the dignity of human labor. Bose has adopted Business Ethics and Conduct Guidelines which require, among other things, that employees know, understand and abide by the laws of the countries in which Bose operates. Bose will not knowingly do business with direct suppliers that treat workers improperly or unlawfully, including, without limitation, those that engage in human trafficking, child labor, slavery or other unlawful employment practices. By contract, Bose requires that its suppliers comply with all applicable laws including those prohibiting the use of slavery or human trafficking or other forced labor in the production of goods and services supplied to the company.

In addition, Bose is developing a training program for its employees and managers to help them identify warning signs for human trafficking and/or slavery in its direct supply chain, and steps they can take in working with suppliers to reduce the possibility that Bose Corporation is contracting with businesses that treat employees improperly or unlawfully. Bose does not currently engage in additional steps to verify the direct supply chain to evaluate and address the risks of human trafficking and/or slavery, nor does the company audit its suppliers to determine whether they are engaging in human trafficking and/or slavery.

Bose employees are expected to abide by all laws of the countries in which Bose does business, including those governing human trafficking and/or slavery. If an employee believes that the Business Ethics and Conduct Guidelines may have been violated, he or she must report that violation to Bose management. Bose will investigate any reports of human trafficking and slavery in its direct supply chain, and take appropriate action to remedy the situation. Any employee that knowingly contracts with such a supplier will be subject to discipline, which may include termination. Bose is committed to making a strong positive contribution to the societies and people served by the company and its employees.
