Those high-dollar Bose headphones? A lawsuit filed in Chicago contends Bose has been spying on users via the Bose Connect app, which enables users to remotely control their Bose headphones, and violating their privacy rights by selling the information about what they listen to without permission. Furthermore, Kyle Zak accused Bose of illegal wiretapping.
The lawsuit claims the app also has a data miner called Segment.io; Segment, the company behind the data miner, advertises, “Collect all of your customer data and send it anywhere.”
