One of many few complaints I had in my review of Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds was that they lacked onboard quantity controls. Effectively, just a few weeks after they went on sale, the corporate has now resolved that.
Within the newest replace of the Bose Music app out today on iOS, there’s a brand new quantity management choice in settings. (Presumably this will probably be coming to the Android app imminently, as nicely.) When you toggle it on, you’ll have the ability to swipe up and down on the fitting earbud to regulate how loud the audio is. This characteristic is out there for each the QuietComfort Earbuds and cheaper Sport Earbuds. It’s one thing that was noticed in early consumer manuals for the earbuds however was eliminated earlier than they shipped. I’m glad Bose has rapidly moved so as to add this performance, because it makes the premium earbuds extra well-rounded on the subject of controls. And for Sport Earbuds house owners, this implies you received’t need to mess along with your cellphone (or Siri or Google Assistant) in the midst of a exercise or run if that you must change the amount.
Bose has additionally added an (elective) Spotify shortcut to its Noise Canceling Headphones 700. Now you can set the headphones to launch Spotify in your cell system with a faucet and maintain on the fitting ear cup. Different headphone makers, together with Samsung, have beforehand added related quick-access shortcuts to the favored streaming music service.
