US AUDIO GIANT Bose has taken the wraps off a new pair of in-ear headphones with the most powerful noise-cancelling tech you’ve ever heard.
At an event in New York on Thursday, the firm unveiled the QuietComfort Earbuds II, taking on Apple, who just launched the AirPods Pro 2.
The earphones block out sounds on a whole new level, and thankfully, The Sun was in town to give them a try.
In a live demo, the brand showed off how the buds can be switched to “quiet mode” with the flick of a finger to drown out a whole host of external sounds, such as people and traffic.
The company even played a video of a tube carriage complete with loud screeching noises and the QuietComfort Earbuds II were able to block out the sounds entirely.
Bose says this improved noise-cancellation tech has been made possible thanks to something called CustomTune, a brand new sound calibration technology that is able to personalise the earbuds’ audio and noise-cancellation to the unique shape of a person’s ear.

CustomTune works by calibrating the noise reduction signal to your ears and targeting frequencies that were previously difficult to reduce, such as the voices of people on public transport.
The tech also constantly adapts to noises as your environment changes, making sure it’s always working in the best possible way.
The QuietComfort Earbuds II have also undergone a design overhaul since their predecessor, which was released two years ago. They’re now less bulky and way more slimline, fitting in the ear comfortably without sticking out.
This is because the earbuds have been designed to ensure they’re not just a small update over previous earphones created in the past.
