Headphones on. World off.

QuietComfort® 25 headphones are engineered to sound better, be more comfortable and easier to take with you. Put them on, and suddenly everything changes. Your music is deep, powerful and balanced, and so quiet that every note sounds clearer. Even air travel becomes enjoyable, as engine roar gently fades away. No matter how noisy the world is, it's just you and your music—or simply peace and quiet.

These headphones are designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod models. A version is also available for Samsung and Android devices.

  • Significant noise reduction for travel, work and anywhere in between
  • Deep, powerful sound for the music you love
  • Lightweight around-ear fit you can wear all day long
  • Inline mic/remote for music and calls on Apple devices

Better by design

We've designed our industry-leading headphones with higher-quality materials and finishes. They're lightweight, and earcups rotate even more for a better fit. The headband sits closer to your head, with luxurious suede-like material underneath for extra comfort. If the AAA battery runs out, you can still enjoy music without noise reduction. And the earcups pivot to fit in a compact case that's easy to carry.

Less noise. More relaxing.

QC®25 headphones let you focus on what matters—your music, movies and videos. And they reduce what you don't want to hear. Like a crowded city street. Cabin noise inside an airplane. Or a busy office. Advanced noise reduction technology and unique electronics make it happen. Even the ear cushions give you an extra level of quiet by sealing out some of the world around you.

True-to-life sound

Many of our engineers are also musicians, with a passion for music. So when you wear these headphones, you'll hear ringing guitars. Soaring vocals as the chorus kicks in. Deep bass and crisp drums drive the beat forward. Bose® Active EQ and TriPort® technology deliver performance so compelling, you'll want to listen for hours. And the fit's designed so you can.

You're in control

The inline microphone/remote puts music and call controls at your fingertips. Many features are also compatible with today's most popular phones.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Bose een geschenk van god 2.5 jaar geleden op station haarlem een Bose koptelefoon gevonden, hier 2.5 jaar ontzettend hard van genoten. Tot afgelopen zaterdag, 10 uur sochtends onderuit gegaan met de scooter waarna de koptelefoon spijtig genoeg kapot is gegaan. Ik in de avond in de trein rii een feestje en rarara wat ik daar zie liggen? De bose quiet comfort 25... Niet echt meer een jongen van het menemen aangezien ik iets volwassener ben geworden maar dit kon ik in deze situatie dus echt niet laten liggen. Ook van deze koptelefoon is het geluid bijna niet te evenaren en ik ben er dan ook ontzettend blij mee! Hopen dat als deze kapot gaat er een derde op mijn pad komt, zoniet zal ik er toch echt eentje eindelijk zelf kopen.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Uitstekend geluid I.v.m. met een lange vliegreis in het verschiet, heb ik deze hoofdtelefoon gekocht. Uitstekende geluidskwaliteit. Zelfs zonder de Noise Cancelling ingeschakeld te hebben kan je muziek luisteren met deze hoofdtelefoon, al klinkt het dan wel wat blikkerig... Een groot pluspunt: het omgevingsgeluid wordt heel goed gedempt, ik hoor weinig geluid uit mijn directe omgeving (het lijkt van 'heel ver' te komen). Verder zit deze hoofdtelefoon uitstekend. Uitermate geschikt voor brildragers. Heb nu al veel plezier met deze hoofdtelefoon! Levering is snel en keurig, al mis ik wel een berichtgeving als het bestelde product is geleverd.

Yes. QC25 headphones run on a single AAA battery, included in the box. You can expect an average of 35 hours of use per battery.

Can I listen to music even if the battery has run out?

Yes. QC25 headphones are still able to play audio if the battery is depleted. Without power, however, noise cancelling and Active EQ, which electronically provides more lifelike audio reproduction, are disabled. These technologies need power to operate.

Do QC25 headphones work with other smartphones?

Yes. These headphones are compatible with most Android™, Windows® and BlackBerry® smartphones. Many features of the inline microphone/remote will work with today's most popular phones. You can also use QC25 headphones with mobile and home audio devices that have a standard 3.5 mm jack.

Are QC25 headphones waterproof?

No. They are not designed to be used in wet environments.

Are these Bluetooth® audio headphones?

No. QC25 headphones are not Bluetooth enabled, but they can be used without a cable for noise cancellation. For wireless convenience and Bose quality sound, please consider our wireless headphones.
