If You Bought These Headphones, You Might Want To See This

If you've invested in a pair of noise-cancelling headphones from Bose, you may be interested in learning that there is a possibility their choice in audio content and listening habits have possibly been made available to third party companies. 

According to a lawsuit recently filed in Chicago, an app the headphone company refers it's customers to, Connect, works to spy on those who use the technology.

Attorneys argue that Bose was in violation of the federal Wire Tap Act, with the complaint listing such examples as LGBT podcasts and Muslim sermons to be among the kinds of content that can be shared, and ultimately, used to discriminate or target customers. 

Bose's QuietComfort 35, SoundSport Wireless, Sound Sport Pulse Wireless, QuietControl 30, SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II and SoundLink Color II are all named in the suit, which doesn't list the damages sought by the plaintiff, but does assert that the case is worth more than $5 million.
