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.

Use when flying 700
I bought these to use on the plane for some long flights I have planned, my first to Hawaii 6 hours, and when I went to use them with the 3.5 mm cord, they didn't work!! Which was the reason I bought them, I have owned three Bose headphones and they all worked fine!
Doing some research on line I found out you need a $75 (bought at the airport $$$$) transmitter to plug into the plane so you can use blue tooth to connect to your headphones.
I really don't know what to say other than I am very disappointed with the engineering at Bose that to use them you need to have this additional unit (something more to keep track of and charged)
Very disappointed
If you planning to use these on the plane I would not recommend these.
Why spend the extra money to make them work

Awesome headphones!
Bought these for myself. My son recommended them to me and I couldn't be happier. They're comfortable, easy to use and the sound is for REAL!

Great headphones
These headphones were a gift so I was surprised that they worked so well. The battery life could be better but other then that, they're perfect!

Great noise cancellation and sound
I got this as a present a month ago, and they have the best sound of any headphones that I've had. Great noise cancellation that blocks out most loud sounds.

In love with these headphones
I am no expert on headphone quality, but these headphones are very comfortable resting on my head and over my ears (I have pierced helixes). The audio input is very smooth, and the output is very normal. These headphones have good features like, quiet mode & aware mode, skip & backtrack/replay, and the obvious play & pause. Warning these headphones charge with a USB C port and the wired feature has a smaller port than normal headphones so don't lose the wire they give you.

Mostly Good
I received the QC45's a few days ago and while I loved so much about them, did not find that they were that much of an improvement over my QC15's. I listen to mostly classical music and was hoping to hear full base and highs. And even with some fiddling with the EQ (which helped much) they just didn't measure up. So, I traded up to the NC700's hoping that they will fill the bill. I've always loved Bose products for their professional quality of build and sound, so I wanted the 45s to work. Still, I have high hopes for the 700s.

Overall Great set of headphones
I tried a couple different brands of headphones. These were one of the lightest and most comfortable. Noise cancelling is great with the option for aware mode.

I love my headphones
I got the quiet comfort 45 headphones and they're amazing. One thing that I don't like though is that you can't use them while they're charging, but they don't take long to charge so it's okay. The noise cancellation is AMAZING and they're so comfortable to wear.
