The FCC has revealed the design of the QuietComfort 45, Bose's long-awaited successor to the QC35 II. The QC45 features minor external changes compared to its predecessor, including removing micro-USB charging and a new colourway.

Bose has been selling its QuietComfort 35 II headphones for about three years, during which time it announced the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. The QC35 II arrived just a year after the QC35, which launched in 2016. The QC35 replaced the QC25, released in 2015, so it is high time that Bose announced a QC35 II successor.

While Bose has not teased a new QuietComfort model, the company has certified the QuietComfort 45 with the FCC. The US-based agency has published two photos of the QC45 too, which you can see below. Based on the photos provided, Bose has replaced the micro-USB port on the QC35 II with a USB Type-C port, a much-needed change in our opinion. However, the QC45 retains its predecessor's looks and even its multiple physical buttons.

The QC45 also has smoother ear pads than the QC35 II, mirroring the Sony WH-1000XM4. Additionally, the FCC's photos show that Bose will bring a new beige colour to its QuietComfort series, having relied on Black, Rose Gold and Silver for the QC35 II. Presumably, Bose will sell the QC45 in multiple colours, though.

Unfortunately, the FCC has not provided any information about when Bose will release the QC45. We imagine that the QC45 will offer better noise cancellation and sound quality compared to the QC35 II too; the FCC does not detail any changes in this department, either.
