BOSE HEAR MOBILE APP

Hearphones™ can be controlled with the buttons on the headset but they are designed to be used with the Bose Hear app for the best experience.  In fact, there are several ways the app makes live listening better:

World Volume.  Turn real-world sound up or down based on where you are.  Hearphones™ reduce noise or amplify softer sounds.

Bass and Treble.  Optimize real-world sound by making everything you hear brighter or deeper - your choice.

Directivity.  Microphone arrays on each earbud make conversation clearer from the direction you want.  So you can focus on the sounds in front of you or the sounds all around you.

Music and Call Boost.  It also lets you emphasize the high frequencies to hear your Bluetooth® content more clearly.  Music, podcasts – even phone calls.

Ear Balance.  You can individually adjust each earbud to what sounds best – even turn one off.

Modes.  Modes provide an easy way to store device settings for common device uses.
