Bose returns to form as it faces more competition than ever before

Pros
  • Superb noise cancellation
  • The best voice calls you’ll experience on any headphones
  • Can connect to two devices simultaneously

  • Not quite as feathery light and comfortable as QC35 IIs
  • Bose Music app in dire need of fixes
  • Accidental button presses are common

The successor to the QuietComfort 35 II cost $50 more and have an all-new design. We put them head to head with the Sony WH-1000XM3.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are decent for mixed usage. They're comfortable and have an outstanding noise isolation performance that makes them ideal for listening to music during your commute or in a noisy office. However, their sound profile is suitable for lots of audio content, but it may be too bass-heavy for neutral sound, and they aren't stable enough to wear during your workouts.

Pros
  • Comfortable fit.
  • Outstanding noise isolation.
Cons
  • Bulky design.

These brilliant Bose headphones pip the competition in terms of noise-cancelation, but they don't beat the Sony WH-1000XM3's sound quality.

Pros
  • Outstanding noise cancelation
  • Fun, lively sound
  • Stunning design
Cons
  • Battery life could be better
  • More expensive than the Sony WH-1000XM3s

  • Excellent microphone clarity.
  • Powerful bass depth.
  • Comfortable.
Cons
  • Expensive.
  • Sculpted audio not for purists.
  • No EQ (yet).

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are meant to replace the vaunted QC 35 II. We dig into the Bose 700’s new look and sound to find out if they succeeded.

Pros
  • Excellent noise canceling
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Remarkable voice clarity for calls and voice assistants
  • Connect to multiple devices at once.
  • USB-C brings convenient quick-charging
Cons
  • Boost to lower treble comes off as harsh
  • Requires Bose Music App to control many functions

Bose strikes back in the noise cancelling wars with the Headphones 700. But if you come for the king you best not miss, and app irritations stop these from claiming Sony's crown.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 just fall short of the best, but still boast excellent audio, noise cancellation and look great

Pros
  • Very comfortable
  • Very good noise cancellation
  • Easy to use app
  • Great looks
  • Neutral sounding character
Cons
  • Can't fold
  • Audio could use a little more organisation
  • 20-hours battery not massive
