Bose 700 Wireless Headphones

Review Date 10/23/19

Welcome to the world of "audio AR." What is audio AR, you ask? According to Bose it's "helping you stay connected to your digital world and stay engaged in the physical world at the same time." OK, but how you ask? Welp, Bose says, "Bose AR-enabled products have motion sensors embedded inside that can detect your head orientation and body movement while you wear them. Bose AR-enhanced apps can then use this information along with location data from your mobile device to offer you audio content tailored to where you are and what you're doing." Yeah, that sounds kinda creepy? Or maybe not?

What could happen if something went wrong

It's possible Bose could scoop up your information when you use these headphones and share it with others without your knowledge or consent. Bose currently is fighting a class action lawsuit for doing just that. Also, if you choose to use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant with these headphones, know too that Google and Amazon are also tracking your data.
