Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • The Bose 700 headphones provide 11 levels of effective noise cancellation (compared to the 3 levels of Bose QC 35ii) for silent job seekers that can be selected via the Bose Music app available for iOS and Android
  • Bose also launched a professional version called “Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 UC”, which is certified for Microsoft Teams to provide the high-quality experience during conference calls and easily switch between audio sources
  • You can listen to real-time instructions (navigation or landmarks info) from the headphones as you walk the streets using Bose AR, the company's audio-based augmented reality platform
  • Bose 700 Noise Canceling Headphones support all the three major voice assistants: Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri
  • The Bose 700 is a step away from qc35ii's design language. The minimalist design which is available in three colors: Classic Black, Bright Metallic Silver and limited-edition Soapstone, makes the headphones look much more elegant
  • Their build quality feels better than QC 35ii, stainless steel headband and plastic ear cups with memory foam pads (that are completely replaceable) feel durable and high quality
  • They can be paired with two devices at the same time thanks to the multi-pairing functionality, which allows you to answer the phone call while watching a movie on a laptop or tablet
  • The Bose Music app is quite useful as it acts as an interactive equalizer, allows you to play white noise without music or creates any number of sound profiles
  • In addition to the updated look, the Bose 700 Bluetooth headphones also abandoned the micro-USB port to get an updated USB Type-C
  • Bose claims that these cans last up to 20 hours with continuous music streaming and noise cancellation activated all the time
  • With fast charging technology, these Bose 700 can offer music playback for up to 2 hours on a charge of just 15 minutes
  • Bose 700 are priced at $399.95, which is $50 more than the bestselling QuiteComfort 35ii headphones, and are sure to be another hit for Bose

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • According to Bose, the noise cancellation of the 700s is only a "subtle" improvement compared to the QC35ii, which is evident in some environments and not in others
  • To use all the functions of the headphones you need to download and register in the Bose app on your smartphone. Also, you need to grant lot of permissions such as location history, full-time microphone access etc.
  • The headphones have a new driver and "new acoustic design" but still sound familiar and similar to the Bose QuiteComfort 35ii
  • The Bose 700 wireless headphones still do not support the higher quality aptX and aptX HD codecs used by all new Android smartphones
  • There is no clever way to temporarily amplifying your surroundings, such as covering one of the earcups with your hand when you need it
  • Hands-free support only for Alexa voice commands, for Google Assistant or Siri you need to press the dedicated integrated button
  • Great pair for phone calls, but not so great for Teams or zoom video calls on laptops with Windows 10. You can't use them in stereo mode with the built-in microphone, so you need to use the laptop microphone for this or buy the professional version which is Microsoft Teams certified for conference calls
  • These Bose NCH 700 headphones are not foldable and come with a large carry-on protective case (larger than that of QC35ii), which can take up a lot of space in your bag
  • Because the Bose 700 headphones have a non-folding design, they cannot rest comfortably against your body when wrapped around your neck
  • Sony WH-1000XM3 is a strong competitor with more dynamic sound, better battery life, and better gesture support
  • Such headphones tend to accumulate heat due to their dense padding. It is important if you are already in a warm environment


  • The lightweight, wireless and upgraded stainless-steel head band with angled earcups provides a perfect and comfortable fit for daily hearing
  • Enhance the way you experience the world with Bose AR, an audio augmented reality platform
  • Signature Active EQ offers an immersive listening experience on any volume
  • The unrivaled adaptive system with four microphones isolates your voice from ambient noise so you can confidently answer a call or talk to your voice assistant in any environment
  • Access the virtual assistant of your choice. Just say “Alexa " or press the dedicated VPA button for Google or Siri
  • Choose from 11 levels of noise cancellation to avoid distractions or minimize noise canceling to hear everything around you
  • Thanks to the simple earcup controls, you stay connected without having to pick up your phone
  • Keep your phone in your pocket and stay up to date with voice control services for music, navigation, weather and more
  • Customize controls for quick and easy access to the features you use most often
  • The Bose Music app ensures that your Bose Smart products work together for a more personal experience
  • Get up to 20 hours of battery life and time-based power information
  • The Bose 700 only get better over time as future software updates will add new features
