The QuietComfort 35 from Bose are one of the most popular wireless headphones. If you are using public transport or are a frequent flyer you will most certainly see them all the time. But the question is: Are these really worth your money at the end of the day. Let’s look at sound quality, noise cancellation, construction and design.
Sound Quality. BOSE is known for excellent sound and I can attest to that after I started using them daily about a year ago. While they are not necessarily catered for musicians and beatmakers, they are more than capable of being your go-to headphones. These high quality headphones produce exceptionally clear sound. They don’t quite reach the flat sound of my mastering headphones from AIAIAI, but you won’t miss any detail and feel every tune and beat. The soundstage is amazing and so is the instrument separation. As for bass, the bose quietcomfort 35 wireless headphones picks up bass pretty well too. It’s not as bass heavy as their Beats counterparts, but it’s definitely deep and rich, without sounding muddy or all overwhelming.
Noise Cancellation. The QuietComfort series is all about noise cancelling, so it’s no surprise that this is where they leave the competition in the dust. It is in fact so good at shutting out external noises and sounds, that you can easily lose yourself in your music in a busy rush hour train ride or a bumpy flight across the Atlantic…
Construction and Design The QuietComfort 35 are Bluetooth and NFC powered – in other words they are wireless headphones. However, you still get a cable in case it runs out of charge. Speaking of which, these can go up to 20 hours of wireless use. The headband and ear cups are well padded and fit onto your head and ears snuggly. The structure is furthermore so perfectly set that it doesn’t squeeze your head which could eventually lead to aches. The headphones are also surprisingly light-weight. It comes in a solid matte body with the same finish on the buttons.
Who Are The Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones For?
Anyone and everyone who believes in the power of isolation. If you tend to commute a lot – on foot, subway or train – then you know how bloody chaotic and loud it can get. The horns, the screaming school kids, the construction drills; it can be very tiring and exhausting. And the Bose QuietComfort 35 noise cancellation is perfect for this. We see this headphone becoming a staple for public transport users like commuters and frequent flyers. Even in the office – if you work around unwanted and unpleasant noises a lot, then these headphones are your best bet for some quiet time. No one does noise cancelling better than the Bose, and we have heard and reviewed a lot! There is no white sound, no hissing and cracking. Just put them on and switch off the world around you.
What Do We Think?
Putting aside everything and judging from the features and specs and the promise of the product, we say the Bose QuietComfort 35 are totally worth it! Yes, they are crazy expensive, but once you have them, you will never leave the house without it!
