Could your headphones be spying on you? A federal lawsuit filed Wednesday against Bose Corporation charges that the company tracks the audio content customers listen to through an app connected to their wireless headphones and sells that information without permission. Kyle Zak, who filed the lawsuit in Chicago, is seeking millions in damages for buyers of at least six different Bose wireless headphones and speakers and wants data collection to stop. The suit claims Bose tracks the music, podcasts and other audio customers listen to, and violates their privacy rights by selling the information without permission. Bose did not respond on Wednesday to requests for comment.
