Bose QuietComfort 35 II Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones— Wireless Reviews

I give it five stars. My wife hates them she would give it 1. I put them on and that’s it. I can’t hear her any more.

I purchased these and the Sony WH1000XM2 to compare the two. Cnet says they both have a "9" for sound quality. I would agree, they both sound excellent. The Bose won the test for its noise cancellation, performance talking to people on the phone, comfort on my head, and sound processing.Phone performance:I compared how the Bose and the Sony sounded when recording and playing back my voice with a fan running in the background. The Bose sounded like I was holding an old fashioned handset and talking in a quiet room – intimate and zero background noise. The Sony sounded like I was on speaker phone, and I could hear some background noise. (As a control I also recorded using neither and it sounded like I was on speaker but also I could hear more background noise.) This feature is important to me since I spend a lot of time on the phone and prefer my clients to not hear any background noise.Sound qualityThe Bose and Sony both have excellent sound quality for playing music. I personally prefer the sound the Sony produces. The Sony iphone app lets you choose your levels on an equalizer, and I like that. However, the Bose hears what type of music you’re playing and automatically optimizes the sound, and it does a really good job. While I would prefer to be able to set the levels if I so choose, I also appreciate that Bose is making it all easy for me, so I can truly listen to my music on random and not have to fuss with levels. The Bose iphone app doesn’t do very much at all. It does let you "find your headset" similar to the "find my phone" app, and it will apply firmware. (I’m hoping Bose will add an equalizer into its app in the future.)Noise cancellationThe Sony occasionally made me aware that noise cancellation was going on (with a whitenoise effect). The Bose on the other hand just stops the noise. There is no delay, no white noise, just quiet and your music.ControlsThe Bose controls are intuitive to find and to use. I like that the on-off control is a switch to flip on and off (rather than a button to find). Also, you can use this button to switch between devices, for example between your phone and ipad and your TV amplifier. The right earcup has three small buttons in a row together, and they control a lot of things. Volume, pause, and skip, rewind, answer/decline calls, etc. The left earcup only has the google assistant button, which I programmed to instead control the amount of noise cancellation (high, low, off). Song playback sounds much better with noise cancellation on high, and I don’t think that has to do with noise (I was in a quiet environment); the bass sounds enhanced with noise cancellation on for some reason. (In comparison, the Sony lets you swipe the earcup itself to control volume, pause, play, skip, etc. This seems great in theory, but in practice if I bumped the earcup adjusting my glasses or whatever, the music would pause. I found the Sony to be somewhat buggy in that regard. It would stop playing at times and I had to pick up my phone to get the music re-started, which is annoying.) I found the Bose controls to be more intuitive and consistent. Also, when you switch them on a voice tells you how much battery you have left, which is handy.ComfortThe Bose QuietComfort truly is comfortable. The earcups are soft, there is not a lot of clamping, and the top band is padded so it’s less annoying on the top of the head. (In comparison, the Sony do have more clamping which was uncomfortable over glasses.) I am a pilot and wear a similar headset, so I’m familiar with how headphones feel after a few hours. On-ear are not going to be as comfortable for long term wear as earbuds would be, but I was wiling to make that trade-off to get superior sound quality.StyleThe Bose are more streamlined to my head. the Sony are bulky and look geeky.ConclusionEven though the Sony produces superior sound, the litany of other features (superior noise cancellation, intuitive controls, comfort, style, & phone performance) won me over to the Bose.

These are amazing and Bose is great! I purchased these headphones for their noise-cancellation abilities. I am an application developer and wear them at work because I am easily distracted. I don’t even listen to music with them… they just cancel just about all background noise, including random chatter from the annoying marketing department. I also use them for WebEx and Skype calls with clients. The built-in microphone is great and the noise-cancellation is helpful during those calls as well. Battery life is extremely good. I can go an entire week without having to charge the headset. It comes with an 1/8" cable that will allow you to listen to music even when the batteries are dead. An added feature is that the bluetooth feature will allow you to connect to and hear audio from two sources at the same time. This is great if you want to connect to your iPhone and laptop at the same time.After a month of use, the headphones button would no longer work to pair to a new device. It would still power on and off, just the pairing didn’t function. Bose support was difficult to deal with. At first the support technician didn’t think there was anything wrong with the headset. After a frustrating conversation, he relented and sent me instructions for sending them back to the manufacturer. This would mean that I would be without my precious headphones for at least two weeks. The next day prior to dropping the headphones at UPS I came across The Bose Store at Tysons Corner Mall. I had the headphones with me so I decided to speak to one of the employees there. After a very brief conversation, and even though I purchased these through Amazon, he walks over to a display, gets me a brand new set of headphones and proceeds to exchange my defective ones for the new set. No other questions asked. He just said "We like to take care of our customers". I wish customer support would have been as easy to deal with… but, things worked out.

I have had the liberty of owning both headphones. The Bose QC35 Series 2 and the brand new Sony WH-1000XM3. I have used both for walking, aeroplane travel, travel on the underground in London and and general stuff like walking and around the house.The Sony’s – Greatly improves over the series 2 version of the headphones. They are a right fitting headphone, very loud and impressive base. You can fiddle with the base, treble and noise cancellation until your hearts content as it’s all adjustable via the app. The best thing about these is the noise cancellation. It is the market leader and has overtaken the Bose in this area. They are comfortable and made to high standards. You can even adjust the noise cancellation at different altitudes such as in the aeroplane and this works well. I actually fell asleep with them on recently which was a first as I hate flying. Wearing them and walking I did feel a bit weird for some reason. I think it was the noise cancelling software, perhaps it’s a little too good?The Bose’s – They feel lighter, easier to live with, more roomy than the Sony’s and not as tight a fit which I think makes the more comfortable. The noise cancellation is excellent and you can set them to high, low and off levels. The noise cancellation works very well, however not quite as good as the Sony’s, which you can fiddle with until your hearts content with the app. The sound quality is brilliant, you do get more mid level sound with the Bose, though the Sony’s were definitely louder with more richer base. I wish you could adjust the base and treble but you can’t or at least I can’t find out how you do it. You can adjust these setting with the Sony’s in the app.The winner for me was the Bose. When I began looking for noise cancelling headphones I first began looking for the ‘best cancelling’ on the market but there are many other factors you need to consider when making a buying decision. For me that issue was comfort and ensuring they are ‘fit for the purpose of the wearer.If like me you could end up wearing headphones for 2-6+hrs per day I would choose the Bose over the Sony’s in a heartbeat. They are lighter, your ears don’t get hot or sweaty when wearing them and they have more room. Yes the noise cancellation is very slightly substandard to the Sony’s when side by side testing (though still pretty amazing) and they aren’t as loud, but they are the best for all day wearers. If I only wanted to use my headphones for an hour or two per day, the Sony’s would win hands down (although I found them a little tight for my big head).I advise you to try both pairs, but consider the anount of time you’ll wear them for each day as comfort is really important when you have to live with these headphones. Consider the weight you like to have on your head, comfort around your ears such as the fit and tightness. Comfort becomes more important than being able to fiddle with sounds such as base and noise cancellation when you don’t actually like the things in your head. So please buy the most comfortable and then everything else will fall into ace and you’ll love your decision between these two amazing brands.Last point. If you go into a busy airport and watch the commuters in London you’ll quickly notice most people are wearing one brand in particular. You can guess which it is.

Vengo de diferentes auriculares con funciones similares: el Beats Studio 3 y el Sony wh-1000xm2.Voy a explicar un poco el funcionamiento y una pequeña comparativa con sus rivales.- SONIDO. Estos Bose me han sorprendido gratamente en cuanto al sonido y potencia. El sonido es muy claro, equilibrado y con unos bajos potentes. Escucho todo tipo de música, desde clásica, jazz hasta pop, rock y electrónica. La música electrónica suena muy bien gracias a los potentes bajos. Los medios son correctos y los agudos me parecen equilibrados respecto al resto. El resto de estilos que escucho suenan muy bien aunque en la música sinfónica tengo que ecualizar para que los bajos destaquen un poco más con el resto de frecuencias.- CANCELACIÓN DE RUIDO. El sistema de cancelación es muy bueno. Reduce prácticamente a nada el ruido exterior pero hay elementos como voces cercanas que sí pasan. Hay aspectos que parecen como de magia. Es realmente bueno e indicado para aislarte del exterior y escuchar música sin distracciones y además a un volumen inferior (nuestros oídos lo agradecerán). Tiene tres niveles: alto, medio y desactivado. Se puede cambiar cómodamente desde el botón habilitado para ello en el auricular izquierdo (también sirve para el Google Assistant). Con respecto a sus rivales, la cancelación de los Beats es muy inferior pero la de los Sony a mi me pareció superior a estos.- MATERIALES. Como todo en la vida tiene pros y contras. El material principal usado en su construcción es el plástico y en principio solo veo en metal un refuerzo de la diadema. Con ello, el peso es muy bajo, haciéndolos ligeros y prácticos. La parte que apoya en la cabeza está hecho de una especie de piel sintética y la superior también. Ambas son muy agradables al tacto. Los auriculares están muy bien acolchados y con tacto muy suave. Las bisagras están reforzadas con tornillos metálicos. Esto me da sensación de mejor durabilidad (los Beats pierden mucho en este aspecto).- COMODIDAD. Son realmente muy cómodos. La disposición de las orejeras en oblicuo ayudan a que las orejas no toquen en ningún momento las paredes. Doy constancia de ello porque no es que tenga unas orejas pequeñas, más bien pecan de grandes. Los puedes llevar durante horas y no te vas a sentir agobiado (los Beats me apretaban un poco demasiado y a veces me dolía la cabeza y los Sony no me resultaron tan cómodos como estos).- BATERÍA. La batería no está mal. El fabricante dice hasta 20 horas pero sus rivales en este aspecto tienen batería de mayor durabilidad. Los Sony me ha durado más la batería que en estos. Los Beats también tienen mejor batería. A su favor, tienen carga rápida y en unos pocos minutos tienes 3 horas de autonomía. La carga total de la batería se consigue en poco más de dos horas (comprobado).- CONECTIVIDAD. Se conecta muy rápido con los aparatos, en unos pocos segundos. Que recuerde dos dispositivos al mismo tiempo te facilita mucho la vida para coger llamadas (las cuales se escuchan genial y te oyen muuuucho mejor que en los Sony, que me oían fatal en las llamadas). El que tengan made for iphone y ipad garantiza que la compatibilidad con Apple sea total, rápida y eficaz. No he perdido la conexión en ningún momento. Es una conexión de momento muy buena, rápida y estable.- APP. Desde la app se puede cambiar el nombre del dispositivo, ajustar la cancelación de ruido y también cambiar de un dispositivo a otro sin necesidad de tener que entrar a los ajustes. Podrás cambiar la configuración del botón del auricular izquierdo entre dos opciones: cancelación del ruido o bien el Google Assistant. Las opciones de la App es muy justita, pero lo básico y necesario lo puedes manejar. La app de Sony es muy superior y más configurable.- GOOGLE ASSISTANT. Es la diferencia entre este modelo y el anterior. Debes instalar la App de Google en tu dispositivo iOS. Una vez instalado, configuras muy fácilmente tus auriculares. Luego manteniendo presionado el botón le puedes pedir cosas al asistente. La diferencia principal con Siri es que te dice cosas. Por ejemplo le pides las últimas noticias y te las canta perfectamente por los auriculares. En este aspecto una pasada, es como si tuvieras un noticiario personalizado en todo momento. Algo para seguir jugueteando. Sus rivales, esto no lo tienen.- DISEÑO. Yo me he comprado los plateados. Me parecen mucho más bonitos que los negros. Estos últimos son algo más discretos. No son excesivamente grandes aunque. Los Sony me dio la sensación de ser mucho más grandes y eso me hacía verme un cabezón más grande de lo habitual.- ACCESORIOS. Viene con un estuche negro rígido muy cholo y fiable para la seguridad del producto. En el interior viene un cable jack a jack muy sencillo y sin micrófono y un cable usb para la carga. Los cables podrían incorporar el micrófono y ser de mayor calidad. El modelo anterior incluía en el estuche el adaptador para el info-entretenimiento del avión. En este modelo se lo han cargado y ya no lo incluyen. Lástima porque debe ser muy barato de fabricar y tenerlo en el estuche vendría bien a la hora de coger un avión.En resumen es un producto caro pero si inviertes muchas horas escuchando música, viendo series y quieres estar tranquilo sin ser molestado por el exterior, es una muy buena opción a tener en cuenta. Lo malo es el precio, es caro, aunque viendo a sus rivales, lo veo relación calidad precio por encima. Estoy contento con su sonido agradable y equilibrado y su comodidad que es excelente. Así que entre todos los que he probado, sin dudarlo me quedo con estos.
