iPhone fans may cry foul when reading rumors about Apple’s intention to remove the 3.5mm headset jack from the upcoming iPhone 7 models. But headphone makers like Bose won’t care about Apple’s feelings regarding the audio jack. Bose is one of the companies that know how to offer a high-end audio experience, and it just announced new headphones, neckbuds, and earbuds that will all work with the iPhone 7 wirelessly.
Make no mistake, Bose’s wireless headsets are still expensive, and they still mean business. Just because they won’t be tethered to your smartphone with a wire, it doesn’t mean they won’t offer a high-end experience.
The QuietComfort 35, already available for purchase at $350, is similar to previous designs, and it will offer you a noise-cancelling listening experience. But it can connect via Bluetooth to devices in addition to a wire. The headphones offer 20 hours of battery life on a charge – even longer if you use the included cable.
The QuietControl 30s is a new pair of new neckbuds that also offer noise cancellation and battery life of up to 10 hours. This Bose product is also rather pricey, as you’ll have to pay $300 for it when it launches in September.
Finally, Bose has a couple of earbuds for your sporting session, the SoundSport Wireless ($149) and the SoundSport Wireless Pulse ($199). Neither model comes with noise cancelling technology, but the most expensive option will get you a heart rate monitor built right into the earbuds. The cheaper model can be bought right now, while the more expensive ones will be available in summer or fall.
