Setting the adjustable Active Noise Cancellation mode

The noise cancellation in your headphones can be set higher or lower. This is useful in environments where you want to hear more or less of the sound around you.

Using Noise Cancelling

Noise cancellation reduces unwanted noise, providing a clearer, more lifelike audio performance. By default, the headphones power on in Quiet mode - Noise cancellation is fully enabled.

Changing the Noise Cancellation settings

You can switch between preset noise cancellation settings by changing the mode. For information about modes, see Using Modes.


Using Noise Cancellation on a call

When you make or receive a call, the headphones remain at the current noise cancellation setting and self voice is activated. Self voice helps you hear yourself speak more naturally. To adjust noise cancellation while on a call, change the mode.

NOTE: To adjust self voice, use the Bose app icon. You can access this option from the Settings menu.


Using Noise Cancellation only

You can use noise cancellation only, without audio or interruptions from phone calls.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Disconnect your mobile device
    • Turn the Bluetooth feature off on your mobile device
  2. Press and hold the Multi-function button to change the mode. NOTE: To reconnect your mobile device, select the headphones from the Bluetooth list on your device.
