Can someone PLEASE explain to me

Why do headphones need an app? Are they some kind of special headphones that don't work if you plug them into the phone, or sync them via bluetooth (if they are wireless)

If I bought headphones and they told me to download an app, I'd ignore them, because I'd figure I've already got music playing apps on my phone and don't need a me-too from Bose. If I found it was required, I'd be returning the headphones without ever trying them out!
