Rule The Quiet
Better sound begins with better silence.
That's why we've engineered QuietComfort Earbuds with the world's most effective noise cancelling and high-fidelity audio, plus StayHear Max tips for extra comfort. Because when you eliminate distractions, your music takes centre stage, and so does your passion. Roller skating, street art, woodworking—and every other thing that makes you, you. It's an experience you won't find in any other wireless earbud.
Decades of research. Instant silence.
Our soft, silicone eartips passively block some noise. But the true quiet comes from our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology. Microphones hidden in the earbuds monitor environmental sounds and then produce the opposite signal to cancel that noise. It's tech we've spent decades researching. But you feel the benefit in a fraction of a second.
From Quiet to Aware. With just a double tap.
In Quiet Mode, our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology mutes the world around you, so you can better hear—and feel—every detail of your music. But there are circumstances when you need to be able to hear your surroundings. You can quickly switch to Aware Mode with a simple double tap of the left earbud.
QuietComfort Earbuds now feature Aware Mode with ActiveSense technology, which allows you to hear your music and your surroundings at the same time. And if those surroundings get too loud, ActiveSense automatically adjusts the amount of noise cancellation to turn the sounds around you down to a more comfortable level. The result is hearing everything you need to at a pleasant and balanced volume.
You'll love what you hear
QuietComfort Earbuds' breakthrough innovations and exclusive acoustic architecture let you hear everything you love in high-fidelity audio—no matter how loud or soft you play it. And that's no small thing. On most earbuds, bass disappears when you lower the volume, leaving your music sounding tinny and small. We solved this with our volume-optimised Active EQ. It boosts highs and lows for consistent balance no matter how loud or soft you listen.
Comfort. That stays put.
Every surface that touches your ear is made of soft silicone—not hard plastic. And when you move, StayHear Max tips (three sizes included) keep your earbuds in place. An umbrella-shaped nozzle spreads pressure evenly across your ear for comfort, stability and passive noise blocking. All while an extended fin tucks into the ridge of your ear for an even more secure fit.
Tap, touch, swipe controls.
Seamless capacitive gestures make it easy to control these advanced earbuds. Change the volume, flip between noise cancelling and Aware Mode, and answer calls. All with simple swipes and taps. When you're done listening, just pop them out. QuietComfort Earbuds sense the movement and pause your music automatically.
Clearer conversations. Wherever you have them.
Tiny mics, hidden in the right earbud, work together to reject noise and ensure you always sound clear—whether you're taking calls from a busy home or on the go outside. The mics focus on the sound of your voice, while filtering out most of the sounds and wind around you.
Rain or shine
We built QuietComfort Earbuds for life on the go. They earned an IPX4 rating for durability, with specially designed acoustic mesh in the ports to keep out moisture and debris.
Play, store, charge—repeat.
Listen for up to 6 hours on a single charge. Then when you're done, pop them in the case for an additional 2 full charges. And when it's time, recharge the case via the included USB-C or any Qi-certified wireless charging mat (not included).
