Apple to Remove All Bose Products From Its Stores?

Posted by · 12260 views · Translate

Following a deal with the NFL that bans players from wearing Apple Beats headphones on camera, Apple is preparing to remove all Bose products from its retail stores, reports MacRumors.

A 'reliable source' tells the site that the inventory change will begin early next week, with instructions for removal being sent to employees in the coming days.

The reasons behind this removal were not disclosed, but it is very likely tied to to Apple's recent acquisition of Beats Electronics. As part of this deal, Apple obtained the popular Beats headphone division as well as the company's subscription music streaming service. With Beats now featured prominently by Apple, either Bose or Apple may have decided to end their retail relationship.

Other reasons for the removal could involve the sponsorship deal Bose signed with the NFL that prevents players from wearing Beats headphones while on camera. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was recently fined $10,000 for wearing Betas headphones during a post-game press conference.

Additionally, Bose is suing Beats alleging that the company has infringed on five of its noise cancellation patents.

We are (we're) resellers to Bose until they banned the Beats Products to better get a handle on the headphone markets in the NFL. With this actions, Bose can go back to their little airport carts to sell their headphones. Billions lost, we win.

Apple has become a vengeful company. Remember that german magazine Computer Bild which apple has banned from all media events because they were investigating and trying to duplicate the bending issue? However, they are forced to swallow their pride and keep ordering from Samsung because Apple knows it needs Samsung.

You have became the most arrogant troll of any. Apple banned the german magazine because it's nothing but a misleading claim that could have reach Samsung to mock them again. Truth be told nothing is ever forced them to do anything nor ever had orders from Samsung. They were the ones who loved working with Apple in order to steal. That's why Samsung needed Apple in the beginning which clearly explains why Galaxy started the way iphone did, then windows, etc. btw you're choking on blind gimmicks.

You don't make any sense. Try reading what you write before commenting on someone's post.

Not as much as you. Smell the coffee and read comments twice and compare before spewing gullible rants immediately if you want to make a real comeback!
