Owners of Bose’s QuietComfort 45 noise canceling headphones can now adjust the bass, midrange and treble EQ settings to their liking. With a new firmware update released yesterday, the QC45s are no longer stuck with their standard, out-of-the-box tuning. You can enter your preferred settings or choose from a few of Bose’s own presets, including bass boost, treble reduction, and so on.
QC45 owners are already comparing the EQ tweaks on Reddit, with many ramping up the bass response a bit. I noted in my review of the otherwise excellent QC45s that it was disappointing to see them released without EQ tweaking, so I’m glad the company has managed to add it.
The latest QC45 firmware also “makes it easier to pair and connect to Windows PCs,” according to Bose’s release notes.
To install the latest update for the QC45s:
- Open the Bose Music app on your Android or iOS device
- Tap “install update” on the QC45 operation screen and follow the guided prompts
