The biggest upgrade to the QuietComfort headphones is the ANC system that gets a new transparency mode. Users will get two modes — QUIET and AWARE. In QUIET Mode, the ANC system will cut off all the popular ambient noises around you, especially those typically found in commuter trains, busy office spaces, and cafés. “The now famous “whoosh” associated with Bose noise cancelling technology happens in a fraction of a millisecond”, says Bose.

In the AWARE Mode, the QC45 headphones switch to full transparency, where everything can be heard again.

For phone calls and commands, QC45 users can also have the noise cancellation effect. “A beam-form array isolates their voice, while a rejection array dampens and blocks the audible distractions around them — like a coffee grinder or barking dog — from being picked up and transmitted to whomever they're talking to,” says Bose.

The design of the QC45 builds on the iconic look of the QC35 2. While it looks similar, pleats and puckers have been removed from soft materials, gaps between components have been replaced with smooth transitions. The headphones are said to be more durable, lightweight, and versatile to store in a compact carrying case, which is included in the box. It is avaialble in triple Black and White Smoke, both with a matte finish.

The QC45 still offer four buttons on the right earcup – volume up, volume down, power, and Bluetooth pairing, and one to answer and end calls, play and pause music, and more. There's another button on the left earcup to toggle between ANC Modes and to mute the mic during calls.

Users will also get the Bose Music app to set it up and use. It is available for both Android and iOS devices. Lastly, the QC45 headphones claim up to 24 hours of battery life and can now charge via USB-C. Bose says it takes two hours for a full charge but a quick 15 minute charge can offer for three hours of playback.
