Hear the difference Bose technology makes
QC®2 headphones' proprietary Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphone technology results from decades of Bose research and refinement. These award-winning headphones electronically identify and dramatically reduce noise—while preserving the sound or tranquility you desire.
They also feature proprietary signal processing and TriPort® acoustic headphone structure for quality audio performance—including deep low notes―from small, lightweight earcups.
For travel, work and home
QC headphones were originally designed for airplane travel, and you'll notice a dramatic decrease in jet engine noise when you fly. Simply connect them to the inflight entertainment system or your portable player to hear quality Bose sound.
Wear QC2 headphones on buses, trains, in the office and at home. You should notice a decrease in background distractions—and sparkling audio reproduction. Pair QC2 headphones with most music-enabled mobile phones too, using our optional mobile communications kit.
Comfortable and convenient
At just under seven ounces, QC2 headphones have a lightweight fit for hours of enjoyable listening. They gently surround your ears with a proprietary, soft-cushion design. And when you're on the move, they fold flat for convenient storage in a slim carrying case.
Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphone technology is a proprietary Bose® innovation that electronically identifies and reduces noise while faithfully preserving the audio or tranquility you desire.
TriPort® acoustic headphone structure, available only from Bose, features tiny vents in the earcups to produce a tonally-balanced audio performance from small, lightweight headphones.
Single, detachable audio cable for greater convenience than standard dual-cable designs. Use Bose QC2 headphones without the cable for noise reduction only. To add audio, simply connect the cable to inflight entertainment systems, computers, portable players and home systems.
QuietComfort ear cushions use a proprietary soft-cushion design to establish a critical acoustical seal between the earcups and your head. This enhances the benefits of our noise reduction headphone technology and helps deliver a quality audio performance.
Fold-flat earcups rotate 90 degrees for easy storage and portability in slim carrying case.
Portable carrying case protects your headphones and accessories.
Active equalization electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.

Are QuietComfort 2 headphones noise canceling?
Yes. Proprietary Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphone technology electronically identifies and dramatically reduces noise—while preserving the audio or tranquility you desire.
Do QC®2 headphones use batteries?
Yes. QC2 headphones run on a single AAA battery, included in the box. You can expect an average of 40 hours of use per battery.
Will they work with my MP3 player?
Yes. The QC2 audio cable fits directly into most MP3 players, including Apple® iPhone™ and most iPod® models.*
* Bose headphones are not recommended for use with the third-generation iPod shuffle. However, Bose headphones are compatible with all other Apple iPod and iPhone products.
Do they provide the same audio quality and noise reduction as QC3 headphones?
Yes. You enjoy the same quality Bose® sound and same total noise reduction offered by QC3 headphones. The most obvious difference between the two models is the fit. QC3 headphones have a smaller, on-ear design; QC2 headphones fit around the ear.
Are these headphones wireless?
Not in the conventional sense. The included cable must be used to hear audio from portable media players, home stereos, laptops and the like. If you simply want to use the headphones to reduce background noise, however, no audio cable is needed.
Do the headphones need to be turned on to listen to an audio source?
Yes. Turning on the power switch lets you hear your audio source and enjoy the added benefits of reduced background noise.
