What do commuting, going on a run and deep-cleaning your house all have in common? They’re all tedious actions made significantly less tedious by listening to music. Whether you’re blasting the latest Taylor Swift album or listening to a birdsong mix to find your zen, music is crucial to getting through the day with a little bit of sanity– as is a great pair of earphones. But what’s even better than a great pair of earphones? A stylish pair.

It goes without saying that sound quality is key when shopping for earbuds, but design is equally high stakes. After all, earphones (just like your handbag and sunglasses) are a consistent part of your daily uniform, meaning they need to do more than just sound good. They need to look good, too. That’s where Bose’s latest design comes in.

Unlike most earbuds currently available, the Bose Ultra Open Earbuds are uniquely built into a cuff-shaped earbud (just like a jewellery cuff) achieving what no other earbuds has so far, which is to create a wearable tech device that is actually stylish. Not only do they look like a (slightly avant-garde) piece of jewellery, but their revolutionary Bose OpenAudio technology allows the earbuds to deliver rich, private sound only you can hear, while leaving you open to the sounds of your surroundings. No more panic that you’ve missed an important train announcement or pausing to explain your (somewhat convoluted) coffee order; the new Bose earphones let you continue with your life, just with your favourite soundtrack in the background.

What’s more, the earbuds hook around the ear so gently that you can leave them on all day, meaning you’re always ready to listen to music or take a call without needing to dig through your endless carry-all to find them. The Bose Ultra Open Earbuds also bring you as close to a live show as possible without actually being there thanks to their in-built Bose Immersive Audio technology which spatialises the music, meaning you’re not only listening to your favourite song – you’re in it. And, with a playtime of up to 7.5 hours (or up to 4.5 hours with Immersive Audio)*, you can get through your day without the panic-inducing battery low warning.

Merging fashion and music, the Bose Ultra Open Earbuds below are one of a kind. And, as one of the only retailers that offers fashion and tech in equal share, you can shop Bose’s latest launch at John Lewis.
