Bose 700 noise-cancelling headphones

The new Bose 700 series headphones come with a new voice interface that redefines mobile communication the way Bose noise cancellation redefined mobile audio, the company claims.

Bose's proprietary innovation enables the headphones to isolate a user’s voice from 360 degrees of unwanted sound.  With this, Bose 700 owners can have noise-free conversations during rush-hour traffic, and even in loud subway platforms. They can be assured of crystal clear calls to home and work, and unprecedented accuracy from VPA (Virtual Personal Assistant)s.  Bose 700 supports Apple iOS and Google's Android platform. With this, Bose 700 users can summon Siri on iPhones, the Google Assistant on Android mobiles and also  Amazon Alexa via mobile app.

Also, it comes with a new acoustic and electronics package, new digital signal processing, and a new eight microphone system to offer enhanced user experience.  Six microphones can cancel noise, so it doesn’t reach the users' ears.  Two of those microphones combine with two others to dramatically improve voice pickup, the company claims.

The beamform-array isolates the user's speech, suppressing everything else that’s audible.  A rejection-array adds a second line of defense, tracking then blocking the most disruptive remaining sound — from a coffee grinder to other dialogue nearby.  It all happens in real-time — adapting as you move, turn your head, and your environment changes, the company claims.  

It works with any VPA, any phone paired to the 700s, or any phone or phone/headphone combination on the far-end.   And it works from anywhere, whether you’re talking to people or machines.  On audio and video calls, the person on the other end can hear what the user is saying — not the TV or a person behind him or her, Bose added. It comes in black and silver colour options for Rs 34,500.
