King of Noise Cancelling- The Bose 700 Review
Updated: Oct 15, 2020
These headphones are a delight to use. There are a few issues that are found with these that I’ll get into, but overall the experience with the Bose Noise Cancelling headphones 700 is just great. They’re lightweight, easy to use, well-built, and I’d say are very beautiful. Whether or not you think they’re worth the price , they’re one of best pair of Bluetooth headphones as of today.
The Bose 700 have a soft rubberized plastic built quality, and the ear-cups rotate a full 90 degrees, so you can rest these around your neck when not in use. Like most headphones that can adjust the head band, that type of function adjustment has been swapped out for one that lets you slide the ear-cups into place instead. Unfortunately these don’t have hinges for folding, so expect to make use of the included hard shell referring case if you want to keep these safe with you at all times. The headband has a metal construction that will make it much harder to accidentally break, making these an excellent pair of comfortable Bluetooth headphones.
There are a total of 3 buttons on the headphones, and 2 of them don’t have any icons or labels of any kind, which I personally don’t mind since you can’t really see the labels when you’re wearing them. Only the power/Bluetooth pairing button on the right ear-cup has a small Bluetooth logo so you can tell it apart from the other 2 when turning them on. You won’t find any playback buttons here as they’ve been replaced with a touch-sensitive gesture pad on the right ear-cup.
Bose claims only 20 hours of battery life, but you might be able to squeeze some more battery juice if you lower the ANC. In the app, you can also set a timer to have the headphones automatically turn off after a pre-designated amount of time. If you take advantage of that too, you should be able to go a long time before you need to throw these back on the charger which is, thankfully, USB-C this time around.
The noise-cancelling features in the Bose 700 is slightly improved over the noise-cancelling compared to the Quiet Comfort 35 II, and its noise-cancelling performance is neck-and-neck with the Sony's WH-1000XM3. Depending on the type of noise you're encountering, you may find one a tad more effective than the other, but again, it's very close. If you're more sensitive to the pressure feeling of noise-cancellation technology, the Bose 700 allows you to adjust the level of noise cancellation. In conclusion to the Noise Cancelling, these do a fantastic Job on cancelling loud air conditioning vent sounds. Whether you're walking in busy streets in New York, or simply need peace and quiet at the office, these will bring relief to your problem.
The Bose 700 sound a little better than the QuietComfort 35 II. The Bose aren't as loud as other headphones, but they are more precise, delivering a wide sound-stage, with balanced highs, mids and lows.The Bose 700 headphones do a good job with low end ambient sounds. If you are looking for a pair of Bluetooth Headphones that offer excellent sound quality, these are the ones you are looking for.
Should I buy the Bose 700?
If you only care about owning the headphones that have the best active noise cancellation, then you should just get the Sony WH-1000XM3 because technically, they are a bit better. There are also the AKG N700NC headphones worth considering as well. That said, at least to me, the Bose 700 are clearly the more desirable product. With 20hrs of battery juice on a single charge, and with excellent Noise cancellation, these are surely one of the top Bluetooth headphones in the market as of today.
