Bose QuietComfort Earbuds and Sport Earbuds now support swipe controls to adjust volume after a firmware update for the Bose Music app added the feature. Users of Bose’s two premium true wireless headsets can now control the volume directly from the headset, a feature previously unsupported. While it will be a while after the launch of the true wireless earphones, this feature will be a welcome addition to users of the two true wireless headsets from Bose.
The addition of swipe volume controls for the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds and Sport Earbuds was reported by The Verge, who states that the latest update to the Bose Music app for iOS adds the ability to set a new ‘Volume Control’ option in the settings in to switch. When enabled, users can swipe up or down on the touch sensitive portion of the right earbud of the two headsets to adjust the volume.
The update is likely also coming to the Android version of the Bose Music app, making touch controls much more detailed and useful. The report also states that the Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 can now quickly launch Spotify directly from the headset using a tap-and-hold gesture on the right. However, this is optional and can be controlled through the specific settings for the headset in the Bose Music app.
Bose launched the QuietComfort Earbuds and Sport Earbuds globally in September this year, while pricing and availability in India were announced in October. Priced at Rs. 26,990 and Rs. 17,990, the true wireless earphones take on the competition from Apple, Sony and Sennheiser in the premium segment.
