The new SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones deliver a new level of performance for Bluetooth headphones. They feature crisp, powerful sound, new features, and a design that’s lighter and more comfortable than conventional Bluetooth headphones.

The SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones deliver all the audio performance of a Bose wired headphone. Bose Active Equalization and TriPort technology combine for smoother, more balanced sound. Mid-high frequencies are natural, and low-frequencies are detailed and full. Yet, there are no cords or cables, so you can take calls, or enjoy a video, movie or music freely.

The SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones let you hear and be heard, wherever you are. A new two-microphone system rejects distractions like wind, so callers can hear what you’re saying more, and the sounds around you less. Adaptive Audio Adjustment technology automatically changes volume based on speech level and ambient noise, letting you move from a quiet building to a busy street without missing a word.

Now, new offerings join the family: the SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker is the most affordable and lightest speaker option, and SoundLink Bluetooth headphones extend the line for wireless personal listening.

The SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones debut new functionality and are so intuitive, anyone can use them. They connect up to two devices at a time and let you switch between each, so you can watch a video from your tablet while staying connected to your smartphone. Simple voice prompts identify who’s calling, battery status and source connection. With commands on the earcup, you’re in control: turn it on and off, answer and end a call, adjust volume, play/pause, or control tracks, without using your phone.

The SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones were precisely engineered for a busy life. They use rugged, impact-resistant materials, glass-filled nylon, and non-corrosive stainless steel — yet they weigh only 5.5 ounces. Designed to be worn comfortably for hours, they feature soft ear cushions and a headband pad made of fabric used in high-end automotive applications. To stow away, they fold smoothly for compact storage in a matching case. The SoundLink Bluetooth headphones come in Black or White, and charge easily with an included USB cable for up to 15 hours of listening, or up to two hours after a mere 15-minute charge.
