Designed with sturdy, high-quality materials like impact-resistant, glass-filled nylon, these headphones are made to withstand all of the metaphorical and literal bumps that may come with this new chapter in life. Plus, each pair is equipped with a custom cast metal hinge at each pivot point to reinforce the strength of the design, making these a perfect expense without any regret.


Most post-grads aim to dive head-first into the working world with a new entry-level role, which can make money tight. For folks interested in a durable piece of technology, the QuietComfort 45 headphones will ensure that your money goes far.

Block out distractions with the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II

Post-grad life is all about opening yourself up to new journeys and experiences. For many post-grads, that could mean moving to a new city. Stripped of the soft comforts of life in a college town, the hustle and bustle of the city could jolt the temperaments of even the most confident transplant. That’s why products like our noise cancelling earbuds, such as QuietComfort Earbuds II can be a perfect solution for people making the post-college transition.

QuietComfort Earbuds II come equipped with two modes: Quiet and Aware. Quiet Mode provides maximum noise cancellation. That lack of distraction may be perfect for the new graduate hunkering down with job applications or preparing for major tests.


But for those who are interested in immersing themselves in the world, Aware Mode makes for a nice compromise. Unlike other headphones, which take the listener out of the action, the Aware Mode option in QuietComfort Earbuds II picks up some of the background surroundings and plays them naturally through your wireless headphones. This makes for a more authentic listening experience that keeps you aware of your new surroundings while still enjoying the content playing through your earbuds.


Wherever you may go in life, QuietComfort Earbuds II can be the perfect accompaniment.
