Although not as popular in Nepal, Bose has quite a name for itself in the accessory market. Founded by Amar Bose in 1964, this company focuses mainly on audio equipment and are well known for their noise-canceling headphones and natural-sounding speakers. Though they come at a reasonably heavy price, they guarantee high-quality sound and durability that not many can boast. The new QuietComfort and Sport Earbuds, which have been launched recently, further go on to prove Bose’s quality promise, with the QuietComfort claiming itself to the world’s most effective noise-canceling earbuds. In this article, we will discuss both of these exciting products, whether they are worth the buck or not, and the expected price in Nepal.
Claiming itself to be the world’s most effective noise-canceling earbuds, the QuietComfort promises utter silence – nothing will stand between you and your music. The earbuds produce crisp, clear audio and rich, deep bass over a bed of virtual silence, allowing the listener to hear all kinds of details that typically get lost, like the singer breathing between words, percussion textures, etc.
Through a combination of patented active and passive noise cancellation innovations, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds bring all the noise-canceling performance of their best over-ear headphones in the TWS earbuds category. It uses both active noises canceling like internal and external microphones to cancel out sound using opposite sound waves, and passive noise canceling through its soft airtight ear nozzle.
The noise cancellation is highly adjustable, meaning you can adjust the amount of noise cancellation that you’re getting as per your requirement. If you’re chilling out on your couch or working out, you can drive the noise cancellation to the max, but if you were, say, walking on the street, you could lower the noise cancellation to be safe.
Bose Sport Earbuds:
The Sport earbuds promise more than a sportier design: these earbuds are designed, keeping in mind everything you want in a pair of workout earbuds. Seeing how TWS earbuds are becoming increasingly popular among fitness enthusiasts, the Sport Earbuds are uniquely designed to provide a quality sound experience even in the most challenging workout sets.
The Bose Sport Earbuds are specially designed in a way that allows the sleek earbuds to sit closer to your ears. They are built for comfort and snugly fit in the ear even in the most intense of exercises. The StayHear® Max tips create a tight seal with the ear canal, which is critical for hearing the deep low notes that add impact and emotion to your music and block the ambient noise around you so you can focus on your workout more intensely.
Although the Sport Earbuds come at a lower price than the QuietComfort ones, they don’t compromise on sound quality in the least. Using acoustic port design and premium, high-efficiency drivers, the earbuds delivers “big” sound-spacing and accurate frequencies. Using Bose’s signature Volume-optimized Active EQ, the earbud automatically boosts the lows and highs so that music, videos, and voices always sound balanced at any listening level.
Instead of buttons, Bose Sport Earbuds feature a capacitive touch interface. The button surface acts as a touch-screen, allowing users to start/stop music, answer or reject incoming calls, adjust volume, etc.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds and the Bose Sport Earbuds are available for pre-order at $279 and $179. The expected price in Nepal for these two audio beasts stands at Rs. 35,000 and Rs 23,000, respectively, although this can change due to various factors like shipping costs and taxes.
