Which Clear Mic is for me?

Posted by Ashley D on 5th Jan 2021

Hey there! If you stumbled onto this article, you may be wondering, which headphones do I have or which Clear Mic do I need?

Let's start with the basics:

CM1502 - Bose QC15

CM2502 - Bose QC25

CM3504/CM3505 - Bose QC35 I, II, 700

CM3512 - Beats and other 3.5mm headphones

"How do I know which headphones I have?"

Well, you can look here on Bose's serial number lookup, which will tell you exactly what you have. The 17 digit (last four will identify) serial number is located underneath the upper-right portion of the scrim within the right ear cup. You may have to slightly lift the inner fabric to see the label.

Now that you know which headphones you have, it's time to determine which Clear Mic is for you. You probably have already figured it out but let's recap and then talk details!

"The built in mic on my Bose is fine, why do I need a Clear Mic?"

Thanks for asking! Our Clear Mic adds to the noise cancelling feature of the Bose headphones. You will be surprised at how much background noise is actually getting through without it! You are also able to answer/end calls, adjust volume levels, and mute mic with the toggle switch! Watch this YouTube video from Bryan demonstrating. 

Please Note: 

CM3511 and CM3504 are now discontinued. 

CM3505 is the NEW go-to mic for QC 35 headphones. 

CM3512 coming soon! 

I hope this helps you pick your Clear Mic!
