The perfect balance of quiet, comfort, and sound.

The original noise-canceling headphones are back, now with better quiet (plus the new Aware Mode), shockingly light materials for premium comfort, and proprietary acoustic technology for deep, clear sound. It’s an icon reborn. Bose QuietComfort® 45 headphones. The perfect balance of quiet, comfort, and sound.

The noise-canceling headphones that started it all.

Acoustic Noise Cancelling™ — it started right here with the original QuietComfort® headphones. And now it’s better than ever. With an additional external microphone (for a total of six) and enhanced signal processing, QC45 headphones dramatically cancel out noise so it doesn’t reach your ears.  

More music. And awareness.

Aware Mode brings the outside world in with microphones that pick up the sounds around you and play them naturally through the headphones. It’s your music and your environment at the same time.

Bose innovations for high-fidelity audio.

Bose engineered QC45 headphones with exclusive audio technologies. TriPort acoustic architecture vents the earcups to add depth and fullness without increasing their size. And Volume-optimized Active EQ maintains balanced performance at any volume, so bass stays consistent when you turn it down and the music is still clear when you turn it up.

Comfort in the details.

Everything that made the original an icon is still here. Just refined. Like an updated design with smooth, pleatless cushions and earcup caps crafted from a single piece for a clean look. While luxuriously plush synthetic leather, impact-resistant glass-filled nylon, and custom cast-metal hinges were each meticulously selected for their exceptional comfort and durability. Add in minimal clamping force, and you’ll almost forget you’re wearing them — even after hours of listening.

More music from longer battery life.

QuietComfort® 45 headphones give you more playtime than their predecessor, with 24 hours on a single charge*. And they charge via USB-C® in up to 2.5 hours. A quick, 15-minute charge gives you up to 2.5 hours of playtime. Or plug in the included audio cable to listen for even longer in wired mode.

*Battery testing was conducted by Bose with active noise canceling on and in continuous audio playback at 50% volume. Battery runtime is based on typical use and may vary based on usage.

Clearer conversations than the competitors.

The improved voice pickup of QC45 headphones exceeds the competition. With the addition of a fourth microphone, the headphones better focus on your voice. Plus, a noise-rejecting algorithm filters out environmental sounds for clearer conversations.

Customized control.

The Bose Music app walks you through a guided setup, making it easy to get started. Plus, access all noise cancellation settings, manage your Bluetooth® connections, enable a shortcut, and more.

connection to other wireless products
I purchased a month ago and found that it was very difficult to link to my Samsung Smart TV. I had to get my daughters boyfriend, son does coding, to get it working for me.
I have had headphones in the past . I even had an older Bose headphone and did not have the problems that this one gave me… it might have been over engineered. I think in the future, Bose should use the KISS system for amateurs like me.

Q45 Bose Headphone's
I am in love with my new Bose Headphones. Crystal clear sound which takes me away to music heaven. A beautiful, serene listening experience. Ear pads are soft and pain free. Headphone buttons are easy to navigate and they fit on my head perfect. Perfect is the word to describe these headphones. Love would be another word. Thank you, Bose.

Bose QC45 is Awesome
My Bose QC45 headphones are Awesome. The noise cancelling headphones are well worth the cost. One downside is the headphones disconnect if charging, the SkullCady stays connected.

Quality item
Slighty disappointed with my headphones, as I can not initiate them. It turns that my iPad is too old to run the software needed to download the Bose App, to get the headphones working. A point which I feel should have been made clear at the point of purchase. However, I have managed to charge them up, and via a cable connection they are giving me a very good sound, and are comfortable to wear. I suspect it would be even better if they were fully fired up.

Cannot use them
I got these 2 weeks ago to wear when I do a radio show. I used them at home for really short periods of time and my ears didn't feel right when I took them off. The little hardwire that came with them wouldn't fit into anything at the station. I got lucky with Amazon and a couple of nights ago used them to do my show. It is something to do with the noise canceling feature that makes them extremely uncomfortable for me. It feels like a vacuum is sucking on my ears and it hurts. I used them at extremely low volume. My voice didn't come through right either. I use headphones twice a week for about 3 hours, professional headphones at the dtations and have never experienced this before.l, and returned them when I went to town yesterday. If you have never tried noise canceling headphones before I would suggest trying before buying. My ears sti?l hurt. They were also very uncomfortable, too tight, but when my head moved, they slipped. Also if you get near any metal when wearingnthem outside they will disconnect for a second. I was so excited to get Bose headphones and then so disappointed.

Seriously baffled at the silence
Bought this two weeks ago so I could work in the living room with my family, it is almost completely silent! A little background music and the outside world doesn't exist!
