For those who prefer a compact on-ear design and a rechargeable battery, QuietComfort 3 headphones offer a proven combination of Bose® noise reduction, audio performance and comfortable fit. Proprietary Bose technologies deliver quality sound from these award-winning headphones•making listening a pleasure just about anywhere. Leave the noise behind and get the most from your music.

Hear the difference for yourself

Wear QC®3 headphones when you fly, and you'll notice a dramatic reduction in engine noise the moment you turn them on. For quality audio, simply plug the cable into your portable player or the inflight entertainment system.

Use QC3 headphones at home or at work and distractions fade softly into the background. An optional communications kit lets you use QC3 headphones with many popular mobile phones, too.

No headphones will eliminate all noise. But the Bose technologies in QuietComfort 3 headphones work together to make almost any listening experience more rewarding.

Proven performance
QC3 headphones feature Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology that electronically identifies, then dramatically reduces the noise around you, while preserving the audio or tranquility you desire. Proprietary signal processing and audio reproduction technology also provide lifelike audio across the full range of sound”including deep low tones”from relatively small and lightweight headphones.

With ambient noise reduced, the high-quality sound these headphones provide becomes even more apparent. You may hear nuances in your favorite tracks that you've never noticed before. And the soft-cushioned, easy-on-the-ears fit lets you listen comfortably for hours.

Fine traveling companions
QC3 headphones come with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and convenient wall charger. You can expect 25 hours of use from a fully charged battery, with a lifespan of approximately 500 charging cycles. An airline adapter plug and protective carrying case are also included. Earcups fold flat for easy storage in the slim case.

FYI, TIME Magazine named Bose Noise Cancelling headphones one of the ALL-TIME 100 Gadgets.
