It’s come to my attention that Bose will soon launch the next entrant into their QuietComfort range of noise cancelling headsets. However, unlike the current QC 15 and QC 3, the incoming QuietComfort 20 moves to an in-ear design. While I’d have preferred an update to the on-ear or around-ear models, I’m told the QC20 have redesigned tips that are über comfortable and imagine the frequent flier set will eat up these up despite the $300 price point (and battery/controller appendage that sits about 2″ from the plug).
In other unreleased Bose product news, it appears the SoundLink Bluetooth speaker will be revised with two new models — following in the footsteps of Jambox, by releasing both a handheld Mini ($200) and a larger unit to replace the existing model ($300). And, speaking of Bluetooth, we’re told future iterations of the Bose home theater lines will incorporate streaming capabilities. But the time horizon on those is a bit longer… and probably won’t satisfy my immediate need for enhanced TV sound in our new home.
