Bose by Black!?

Saw this yesterday and though it absolutely tantalizing...both for its irony and potential.
To be truthful, I don't quite know what to think. Check out the video below.

(BTW, Bose already does have the QC25 in Triple Black.)

Jack Black would sell a ton of Bose Triple Black QC25!

Celebrity headphones are yesterday's news. I think people have learned that they have been burned by buying into that. Craigslist is full of used Beats going cheap.

Bose headphones are fantastic noise cancelers. And they sound okay.

But what if BOSE could make this "BOSE Black" headphone sound better?

By better, I mean an incremental, but noticeable/appreciable difference in sound quality compared to the rest if their line. I this happened, BOSE could use this headphone to flex the growing muscle and talent they have in engineering. A better driver = better sound.

A wider range of consumers would then be intrigued (including audiophiles). BOSE would become even more successful as a result.

I haven't bought a BOSE headphone yet, and probably won't - until they start sounding better.

Bose went for big time exposure, (and no doubt big $$$$ advertising), by being the official headphone of the NFL. That doesn't inspire me to buy Bose headphones. Celebrity endorsements don't inspire me to buy anything. You have a good point in saying that a competitive sounding set of cans, other than their noise cancelling units, would do wonders to making Bose a name in and of itself as a quality headphone maker. It could happen. Not holding my breath.

And the answer is none. None more black.

Why does everyone act like Beats and Bose are the only two headphones..... :( Why not a special Sennheiser momentum or a B&O H6.
