Bose is acting shady with its headphones, lawsuit claims

Turns out headphones might be as good at picking up information as they are at sending music into your earholes. 

An Illinois man filed a class-action lawsuit on Tuesday that claims his Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless Bluetooth headphones — in conjunction with the corresponding Bose Connect app — collected the songs and other tracks he listened to and matched that information to an identification number linked to him. Bose then allegedly sent that information to a data miner known as Segment.io, according to the lawsuit. 

The lawsuit goes on to claim that other types of Bose headphones transmit the same data, and that this constitutes wiretapping.
