Some might argue that Bose’s audio products are overpriced and that for those prices, you could get “better” sounding systems. However if there is an area that Bose is ahead of the competition in, it would be its noise-cancelling technology which is used in their QuietComfort lineup of headphones (although Sony seems to be catching up).
Now it seems that the company wants to take that technology and apply it to cars, resulting in the Bose QuietComfort Road Noise Control (RNC). According to the company, “Bose QuietComfort RNC efficiently solves a critical issue that car makers and consumers have dealt with for decades: how to minimize unwanted sound in the cabin caused by driving over rough roads, grooved concrete, and uneven pavement.”
Much like how noise-cancelling tech in our headphones relies on microphones to try and tune out outside noises, there will be similar tech found in the RNC. However it will be bolstered by other sensors such as accelerometers, signal-processing software, the car’s audio system, and more. Now we haven’t tested the RNC out for ourselves so we can’t speak to how effective it might be, but if a smooth and quiet ride is something you’re after, you can look forward to seeing Bose’s tech in cars in the future.
