Feature drop, which is basically a thing of Google with its pixel series, is really an amazing thing. It brings more functionality to the existing devices and makes the users get more from them.
Well, the Bose QuietComfort EarBuds II has just joined the feature drop train. Its new firmware update has just introduced new functionality. So, what does the new update bring to the table?
It enables the users to use either of the two earbuds independently. Before this update, you could only use the right earbud on its own, not the left. That means you will be able to pop either one of them from the charging case to take a quick phone call.
Yes, it is not a game-changer update. But the new functionality that the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II has just gained will make the buds much more user-friendly.
You will have more flexibility when using the buds in a mono-output mode. In addition, the update makes you gain twice the battery life from charging both buds for a single time. How so?
Well, if you use them in a mono output mode, both the buds playing time will add up. And you can get double run time out of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II.
Now, if you are unfamiliar with the QuietComfort Earbuds II, it is a pair of great wireless earbuds. The buds can offer excellent sound quality.
And most importantly, its Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) performance is top-notch. Moreover, the buds excel in terms of comfort.
The design is highly ergonomic, and you can wear the buds for prolonged hours without facing any discomfort.
That said, this is not the only update that Bose is planning for the QuietComfort Earbuds II. The buds are compatible with Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound.
And it also has support for aptX Lossless Bluetooth codec. That will offer CD-quality sound from the buds. And that was pretty much what the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II has been missing all this time.
Hopefully, Bose will work on the firmware and roll it out for the QuietComfort Earbuds II soon. And because more and more phones are getting support for these platforms, Bose fans are looking forward to the aptX Lossless Bluetooth codec.
Now, if you have not yet updated your Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II yet, you should check for an update on the Bose Music App.
You will find the app for iOS and Android devices. Install it and check for the update. It has rolled out already. So, your buds should get it.
