Separate the noise from the music

Proven performance
advanced noise reduction
Advanced noise reduction and a comfortable fit let you enjoy hours of easy listening.

QC3 headphones feature Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology to electronically identify, then dramatically reduce, the noise around you. You're left with the music you love—or the simple serenity you desire. Proprietary signal processing and audio reproduction technology also provide lifelike performance across the full range of sound—including deep low tones—from small and lightweight headphones.

Create a comfortable escape

Think of your noisy office, or the bustling activity in train stations and other public places. At the flip of a switch, that background noise is reduced to a whisper. That’s when the high quality sound these headphones provide becomes even more apparent. You’ll hear more of your music—without having to turn up your music. And the soft-cushioned, easy-on-the-ears fit lets you listen comfortably for hours.

Take calls. Take control

QC3 headphones come with a cable customized for select Apple products. A three-button remote and microphone let you take calls on your iPhone and control music functions on other Apple devices. You can also purchase a mobile kit that lets your QC headphones work with other cell phones, too.

Bose QC3 headphones advanced noise reduction
QC3 headphones make an ideal travel companion, effectively reducing the noise around you to create a more tranquil environment.
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.

  • Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphone technology, a proprietary Bose innovation, electronically identifies and reduces noise while faithfully preserving the audio or tranquility you desire.
  • Compact on-ear design with proprietary soft cushions that establish a critical acoustical seal - helping to further reduce noise while providing a comfortable fit.
  • TriPort® acoustic headphone structure, another Bose exclusive, features tiny vents in the earcups to enable a tonally-balanced audio performance - including reproduction of deep, low notes - from relatively small and lightweight headphones.
  • Active equalization electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.
  • QC3 Inline Microphone
    Inline microphone and remote for select Apple products
  • Rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides an average of 25 hours of reliable use per charge. Small wall charger also included.
  • Interchangeable audio cables, one for general use, and one just for select Apple products, offer greater convenience than permanently connected Y-cables.
  • Inline microphone allows for hands-free iPhone conversation and access to certain voice applications, such as VoiceOver and Voice Control, in other Apple products.
  • Inline three-button remote switches between calls and music, and controls volume, track selection and voice applications on select Apple products.
  • Fold-flat earcups rotate 90 degrees for easy storage and portability in the included case.
  • Slim carrying case helps protect headphones and accessories during travel.
