Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 leaked, and it’s the design I’ve been waiting for

We’ll get straight to it: German news portal WinFuture (opens in new tab) has posted 13 good-quality images of the as-yet-unofficial Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II. Should these images prove legit – and they certainly look genuine – the second iteration of the original and best-in-class Bose QuietComfort Earbuds could have plenty shaved off their bulky driver housings, if not their price-tag.

Refreshingly for a leak (which should still be treated as such, irrespective of picture quality), the images come with a fair bit of information, including a $ 299 price tag (around £ 250, AU $ 430), which is $ 19 more expensive than the $ 279 / £ 249 / AU $ 399 launch price of their September 2020-issue older siblings.
