Audio equipment maker Bose is preparing to release an updated version of its premium noise-canceling QuietComfort Earbuds. Although the company hasn’t officially announced the QuietComfort Earbuds II, a new leak revealed their updated design and highlighted a few key details.
The leak in question comes from trusted leaker Roland Quandt (via WinFuture) and includes official versions of the QuietComfort Earbuds II in two colorways. As you can see from the attached images, the upcoming earphones have the same general shape as their predecessors, but the leak claims that the newer model is much more compact. You will also notice some minor design changes, but these are purely cosmetic and will not affect usability or performance.
The leak also highlights that the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II will offer up to six hours of battery life on a single charge, but it’s unclear if this battery life spec is with ANC or not. Based on the previous model’s battery life rating, we think the QuietComfort Earbuds II will last up to six hours with ANC turned off, unless Bose offers significantly larger batteries in the earbuds. Like previous models, the QuietComfort Earbuds II will offer capacitive touch controls and a charging case with a USB Type-C port.

Quandt further reveals that the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II will retail for $299 in the US, making them $20 more expensive than the previous model. At the moment, we have no further information about the upcoming headphones. But Bose is likely to announce the headphones in the coming weeks and we’ll be sure to share more details as soon as they’re available.
