Earbud 500 and 700 release dates?

Do we have spec's or release date on the earbuds 500 or 700?  I was going to purchase the new Sony noise canceling WF-1000mx and read about the new earbuds.  If they are coming our soon would hold off.  I have older versions of the wireless in ear bose and found that the base was lacking.  Heard the newer true wireless over the weekend and the base is better but with the new ones pending would like to hold off if they are out soon.  I prefer an in ear headphone with an excellent base response.  I find the over the ear headphones uncomfortable.

Re: Earbud 500 and 700 release dates?

Hi there @dpr613 and thanks for your interest in our products!

 

At the current time, both the earbuds 500 and 700 are forecast to arrive during 2020, although I cannot provide any more information on release dates at this time.

You can find a little information about our new breed of headphones, including both these types and the NC700's from our site here.

 

I understand that this may be further away than you would like, and ultimately the decision of what to purchase is yours to make!

In my personal opinion, of the in-ear headphones we currently have, you might find interest in our QuietControl 30 headphones which give you a lot of freedom with audio control using the noise-cancellation feature 😊.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions at all!

Nope...
I am starting to lose hope,

Considering NOTHING was announced at CES it'll probably be 2021 or later

Im liking the looks of the klipsch t5 sport, (summer-fall)

As long as these don't go too deep deep in the ear im going to try them out (unless bose gets there act together lol)

SIde note even the moderator retired LOL

Re: Earbud 500 and 700

AGREED!!  I was really hoping to come to the website to find that I'd simply missed the release date announcement.  I'm ready to stop waiting for these.  I have the Soundsports, and I'm hoping the issues I have them, will be fixed on the 500's or 700's.  It would be a shame to wait for these new ones, and they turn out to be just as flawed.  If it wasn't for the comfort and security of the StayHear tips, I probably would've moved on already.

I Don't like the way the soundsport free buds stick out of the ears.. The new ones look more flush from the youtube video from cnet... Attached is the link for thse that haven't seen it.

Re: Earbud 500 and 700 release dates?

we still have hope for the earbuds to be released in 2020, since the NC700 were announced one month before the launch date

Re: Earbud 500 and 700 release dates?

Sadly no news yet... I currently own QC20 but hate the cable, would never go for QC30 since they look foolish. I did purchase SoundSport Free, but these earpods really suck, phone voice only on one earbud, syncing issues with two parallel devices, syncing issues with left earphone.. They do sound great tho.. well, I sold them.


For the time being I will go with the Airpods Pro, since there is no other alternative... Sennheiser are close, but the noise cancellation sucks.

Really sorry no news for the new 500, but we have to understand, development, testing and production cycles take a lot of time. Also since Bose products are manufactured in China, there is a problem with Chinese New Year vacation.

I just saw this video on Bose youtube channel... At 17 seconds you'll see the Bose Earbuds.

Apparently they were at CES 2020
