QuietComfort® 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones

* On-ear fit: Earcups rest gently on your ears
* Bose® noise reduction and quality sound for travel, work and home
* Comfortable, lightweight headphone design
* Rechargeable lithium-ion battery: 25 hours average use per charge
* Fold-flat earcups for easy storage in slim carrying case

The next step in Bose noise reduction headphones. A smaller, lighter on-ear design - delivering the same levels of acclaimed performance as our around-ear QuietComfort 2 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones. You enjoy the same total noise reduction and audio quality, with an equally comfortable fit.

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

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 them into your portable player or the inflight entertainment system.

Use them at home or at work and you should find distractions fading softly into the background. You can pair QC3 headphones with most music-enabled mobile phones too, using our optional mobile communications kit.

Hear the difference for yourself

Our full-spectrum noise reduction fades background distractions and dramatically decreases engine roar on planes. Quality Bose sound reveals audio nuances you might have missed. And a lightweight, on-ear fit provides hours of comfortable listening.

Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphone technology in QC3 headphones electronically identifies, then dramatically reduces noise, while preserving the audio or tranquility you desire. Proprietary signal processing and TriPort® acoustic headphone structure also assure quality audio performance - and deep low tones - from these small, lightweight headphones.

It's a unique combination of benefits and technologies available only from Bose.


Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphone technology is a proprietary Bose® innovation that electronically identifies and reduces noise while faithfully preserving the audio or tranquility you desire.

TriPort® acoustic headphone structure, available only from Bose, features tiny vents in the earcups to produce a tonally-balanced audio performance from small, lightweight headphones.

Compact, on-ear design with Bose innovations that enable QC3 headphones to deliver the same level of acclaimed performance as our around-ear QC2 headphones.

Custom rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 25 hours of reliable run time. Small wall-socket charger also included.

Single, detachable audio cable offers greater convenience than standard dual-cable designs. Use headphones without the cable for noise reduction only. To add audio, simply connect the cable to inflight entertainment systems, computers, portable players and home systems.

QuietComfort® ear cushions use a proprietary soft-cushion design to establish a critical acoustical seal between the earcups and your ears. This enhances the benefits of our noise reduction headphone technology and helps deliver a quality audio performance.

Fold-flat earcups rotate 90 degrees for easy storage and portability in slim carrying case.

Portable carrying case protects your headphones and accessories.

Active equalization electronically tunes the frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.
