European Union Rules That All Phones Sold in the Region Should Come With USB Type-C Chargers

Published

on

European Union officials have agreed on new rules requiring a uniform charging cord for smartphones and other devices, a move that would make life easier for consumers fed up with rummaging through a tangle of cables for the right one. EU negotiators said they inked a provisional agreement on a “single charging solution,” part of a wider effort to make products sold in the 27-nation bloc more sustainable and cut down on electronic waste.

The new rules, which will take effect by fall 2024, mean EU consumers will only need to use a common USB Type-C cable for small and medium-sized rechargeable, portable electronic devices. The devices covered include mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, earbuds, digital cameras, headphones and headsets, handheld videogame consoles, and portable speakers.

Laptops also are covered, but manufacturers will have extra time to comply. While many electronics makers have started adopting USB-C sockets into their devices, Apple has been one of the main holdouts. Apple had previously said it’s concerned the rules would limit innovation and hurt consumers. The company’s iPhones come with their own Lightning charging port, though newer models include cables that can be plugged into a USB-C socket.

The EU rules also outline standards for fast charging technology and give consumers the right to choose whether to buy new devices with or without a charger, which the EU estimates will save consumers 250 million euros ($266 million) a year. Reducing electronic waste is another goal. The EU estimates disposed or unused chargers account for 11,000 metric tons of e-waste in Europe every year.

Review: Bose QuietComfort 45 Noise Cancelling Smart Headphones

Published

on

Bose’s new QuietComfort 45 headphones replace the successful QuietComfort 35 II. The new pair of headphones come with noise cancellation features, and a new “Aware” Mode to lets you listen to your environment through your headphones when you want to. It also offers voice isolation for easier conversations and 24-hour battery life on a single charge.

In terms of design, the QC 45 is very similar to its predecessor, the QC 35 II. According to Bose, it also uses the same audio drivers, and the buttons are also in the same place. There are a few differences, though. The QC 45 comes with a USB-C port, instead of the micro USB seen on the QC 35 II.

The QC 45 also comes with six microphones, four of which are beamforming and used for voice. The QC 35 II, meanwhile, had a total of four, two of which were used for voice. Like most headphones in the QuietComfort range, the QC 45 is also very comfortable to wear over the ear. The fit of the headphones is also very good, which translates into it being a perfect pair of headphones, for longer listening sessions.

The headphones also come with the new “Aware” mode, which we briefly mentioned earlier. This setting passes ambient sound from the headphones’ external microphones through to the headphones so you can hear what’s going on around you without having to remove the headphones. Bose has also upgraded the Bluetooth version of the headphones from 4.1 to 5.1.

In terms of design and build quality, the QC 45 is top-notch. The headphones are really well made and they are very comfortable to wear for extended periods. Bose also includes physical control buttons on the QC 45. This includes the sliding power switch on the outside of the right earcup, while there are three buttons on the underside of the cup, that handle music and call controls.

The center button has multiple functions – a single press plays or pauses audio; a double press skips to the next track; a triple-press skips back a track and holding it down summons your phone’s voice assistant. These are small nice touches Bose has added to the headphones. You also get a 2.5mm audio jack and Bose bundles a 2.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable in the box.

The battery life of the QC 45 is rated at 24 hours on a single charge. In real-world tests, we were able to clock 18 hours of music listening sessions, before the headphones needed to be recharged.

The Bose QuietComfort 45 excels at audio quality. Lows, mids, and highs were perfect while the bass performance was on point. The guitar strings sounded very lively in Charlie Puth’s “We Don’t Talk Anymore”. Listening to The Piano Guys’ rendition of Adele’s “Hello” was truly mind-blowing. Avicii’s “Waiting For Love” sounded magical on the Bose QuietComfort 45.

Priced at AED 1349, the Bose QuietComfort 45 is right up there among the most expensive ANC headphones. However, you really need to listen to your favourite music tracks wearing the Bose QuietComfort 45 to truly appreciate the sound quality. And at that, the QC 45 really excels. The Bose QuietComfort 45 thus walks away with the Gadget Voize Editors’ Choice award!

Price: AED 1349
