So I was stuck between last year’s M3 and the Bose 700. I saw these were coming out and wasn’t sure. I did more research and was leaning towards the 700’s to save money. I am primarily using these for WFH (music/calls) and the mic on the 700’s is said to be amazing. As I researched I googled around and found that Bose has been having weeks of software issues and didn’t want to get into that. I almost pre-ordered the M4’s but decided to sleep on it because it didn’t make a difference being in a queue. Finally one day, I found a YouTube video on the M4 and all my concerns were already addressed.

Review: Jack Sparrow

I’ve had these for about a week now, and I gotta say I’m totally in love. I’m amazed by the noise cancellation because I bought them despite everyone telling me they weren’t going to work for the purpose I was buying them for–i.e. my loud, noisy upstairs neighbors with their toddler who literally does laps for hours on the hardwood floors.

Although it doesn’t take away 100% of their noise, I would say there’s a good 80% reduction such that I definitely don’t have to blast my music in order to sleep (my ear drums are very thankful), and after so long I can actually have the audacity to sleep-in on the weekends.

So these are pretty big step up for me. I generally buy headphones in the $100 range and I can definitely tell the difference in overall build quality as well as sound. I somewhat like the twist to turn on feature but I worry it won’t last as some reviewers have said. The touch controls work great for volume and skip but not so well for play/pause. The over-ear fit and comfort are fantastic for me. I have pretty big ears and have no issues.

I was skeptical about the PX because I read great reviews everywhere but Amazon. I’ve owned the P5 and P7 as well as the B&O H8 and H9 as well as some Bose cans.

When I first received these they sounded very plain with the bass being extremely pale, however, the sound stage was phenomenal. I was ready to return these but kept forgetting to bring the box to the post office for about a week and boy I’m glad I didn’t.

Review: Daniel James

Packaging is simplistic and straight to the point with two peel back tabs that let you inside. From there, you will see the NCH 700’s case which was smaller than I thought because they don’t fold up like the QC35II’s. The case fits in my work bag just fine. However, I do have say it’s not as small overall as the QC35II’s case. The NCH 700 case has a little magnetic flap inside that stores the audio and USB-C cable. No airplane adapter. Thank you Bose for going USB-C with the NCH 700’s. What’s left is manuals and warranty cards.

There is an awful lot to like about the Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds. I will break down the good and the bad below but, suffice to say, these are possibly the most polarizing ear buds I have ever had on. I guess that makes it the perfect set of buds for 2020.

7. Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for Apple devices

Review: Nicole Mitchell

When I received the product it was amazing, sounded just as I expected. Within a couple months the left side of the headphones started giving trouble and eventually stopped working. When I contacted Bose they sent me a replacement but within a month the same problem occurred. When I contacted them and informed them about the issue they said that there was nothing they could do. I am very disappointed by the quality assurance and their customer service. I will not recommend anyone buy this product or any of their others.

I have a long commute to and from work every day via car, train, bus, and walking. I was looking for a set of headphones that would allow me to focus more on the music and podcast I’d be listening to while also saving my ears from being thrashed by being forced to max out the volume on my phone to get sufficient sound.

As a forward, I have only tried these for a few hours, so I will update this post if my opinions change at all.Some initial things to get out of the way, I am by no means an experienced audiophile. I do enjoy the many different aspects of audio though. I love the character of vinyl and have tried many different headphones over the years.

10. Bowers & Wilkins PX7

I own the Sony 1000XM3, Bose N700, the previous Bose QC35 II, the predecessor Bower and Wilkins PX. I also tested the new Sennheiser Momentum 3 and Master and Dynamic M65 for a few days. This is by far the best among all of them. I do not proclaim myself an audiophile (pretentious term if you ask me), but I do like a good pair of headphones that reproduces music the way it is meant to be heard.

Review: J. Karr

I use these all day long and have for the last month. Fit wise I like that they have slightly larger ear cups than several other similarly purposed headsets I own. They feel a little warmer more quickly on my ears than others, but not by much. And really after having these or any headset on my head for 6-8 hours straight it doesn’t really matter at that point. My ears are going to be warm regardless. I also like that these are super lightweight and fold up relatively small. I see myself using these as my traveling go-to headset once I’m traveling again.
