Bose. It's a name that has been associated with high-end speaker setups, home cinemas and headphones for years. Some people aren't much on the company's tactics (like reserving the specifications from the box), but some swear by the brand. One thing that Bose hasn't really done over the years is branch out; they've done audio, audio and more audio. But now, they're doing something a little different. Years after the HDTV explosion swept over America, Bose is just now deciding to produce their very own television. The VideoWave entertainment system was just introduced, offering a home theater sound system, 46" 1080p LCD HDTV and a music playback system. It's billed as one single product, but it's...

If you think PC gamers have an expensive hobby, well, you're right, but holy moly do those $150 headphones feel like Blue Light specials compared to the new Bose A20 Aviation Headset, the latest pair of earbuds aimed at pilots. These things run $1,095, or $995 without the the Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity feature thrown into the mix. So what does this have to do with PCs? Nothing really, but we're suckers for technology, and the A20s have that in spades. And if we're to believe Bose, the A20 is the "most advanced aviation headset ever." Ever!? Part of the reason Bose makes that claim is because the A20s come equipped a new way of battling noise reduction. As Bose explains it, a proprietary... Read more...
Bose has never been a company to shy away from the high-end luxury market, despite what the pundits may say. Some slam the company for not publishing very many specifications about their products, but the trick--as they say--is in the sound. The company has today introduced a new Lifestyle V-Class and T-Class product line, two home theater sound systems that combine 5.1 channel audio with Bose's new intelligent integration system. That new tech enables the systems to "overcome much of the growing complexity of setting up and using HT systems." Basically, Bose is making it easier than ever to actually set up a true 5.1 system, which has generally been a huge pain in the past. The Unify technology... Read more...
"Bose" and "budget" just don't go in the same sentence together, and that fact has never been more true with the introduction of the company's latest iPod music system. As families across the world look for ways to cut back, Bose is helping you find new ways to splurge, as the SoundDock 10 is right up there with the most expensive iPod accessories known to man.We never expected a device to make B&W's Zeppelin Mini look inexpensive, but the large MSRP here sure had that effect. Packing a traditional Bose design, this one-piece speaker system is considered a "premium" device and was designed specifically for Apple's runaway hit, the iPod. Measuring approximately 9" high, 17" wide and 10" deep,... Read more...
The greatest name in sound? The only name in sound? Yeah, something like that. Whatever Bose's slogan happens to be these days, the company is doing itself proud by introducing yet another glorified set of cans designed to help you tune out mortar fire and crumbling buildings, not to mention airplane noise and rowdy children.Dubbed the "quietest Bose headphones ever," the fresh QuietComfort 15 acoustic noise-cancelling headphones are said to be the company's best performing, ever. While details are scant on the product itself, Bose tells us that the QC 15s "offer more attenuation in louder environments and across a wider range of frequencies -- without compromising the audio quality and comfortable...

Love 'em or hate 'em, Bose has been making music for years now, and it doesn't sound like the company is planning on slowing down anytime soon. While it has seemingly been quiet on the consumer electronics front of late (after it got done with all of its Apple-related wares), the outfit is introducing an all new system today that should catch the attention of those who store all of their music on their PC, but wish to listen to it elsewhere. The simple-yet-effective SoundLink is a two-piece system that is comprised of a USB dongle and a flat-faced stereo. But simply, users just plug the USB dongle into their machine, and if you're within a reasonable distance (not surprisingly, Bose doesn't mention... Read more...
