The QC25 – JAPAN CONCEPT MODEL, is a new model of BOSE’s head phone. It’s a limited edition with a motif of traditional Japanese colors. It has a high  performance as a head phone with a high quality noise cancelling function and has a deep and clear tone color.


“MAKI-E” is based on the image of a Makie, gold lacquer, is a traditional Japanese decoration technique that uses lacquer to create a glossy black color. Gold and silver add an accent to the back base.


“SUMI” is based on the image of a traditional Asian inc made of soot of oil and pine leaves combined by glue. Its color is plain black, but the contrast and combination of matte and gloss realizes a high quality design.
