My Honest Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds Review

Pros: -Excellent noise cancellation, comparable to Sony and Bose over-the-ear headphones.

-Excellent sound quality;-Very light and comfy in the ears, particularly given their size;-Ear tip design holds the ear buds in place and aids noise cancellation.

Cons: Currently, touch controls are fairly restricted. There is no choice for volume adjustments, and the previous track is not available. See the list below.

The Bose Music app works well, although it might be better designed.

-A Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds is little hefty and clumsy, but reasonably necessary for noise cancellation technology.

-Unable to connect to a new device without the charging case, and unable to pair a new device if the charging case’s battery is depleted.

After my Sony WF1000XM3 earbuds perished after 1.5 years of use, I waited many weeks for these Bose Noise Cancelling headphones to arrive. I eventually found them in stock at a nearby Best Buy last week and grabbed them on my way to the gym, where I utilized them for the first time. WOW was my initial impression, the noise cancellation and sound quality are fantastic! When I initially put them in and the noise canceling kicked in, I had to do a double take since I thought I was going to pass out.

Another surprise came when I pulled them out and the air conditioning started on. I had previously assumed that this level of noise cancellation and sound quality could only be obtained with over-the-ear headphones such as the Sony WH or Bose Quiet Comfort 35, but I can confidently state that the noise cancellation and sound quality of these are only a small step below that of the Sony WH1000XM3 over-the-ear headphones, which I also own. It’s astonishing for earbuds to be able to compete with the NC and sound of over-the-ear headphones.

When compared to the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds, I would say that Bose QuietComfort Earbuds perform far better in terms of sound and noise cancellation. These are somewhat larger in size, yet they are very light for their size. I was able to wear them on a treadmill while keeping them safe in my ear, although I know this may vary from person to person. There were three ear tip sizes provided in the package, which may restrict some people’s ability to select the optimum fit. The Sonys come with roughly 7 tips, ranging in size from 3 to 4.

My main beef with these earphones at the moment is that the touch control features leave a lot to be desired. On day one, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds only offers personalization of a single command: the touch-and-hold left earbud, which permits either “next track” or “hear battery level.” Touch-and-hold on the right earbud, double tap on the right earbud, and double tap on the left earbud are all designated for Siri (on iPhone), play/pause, and cycling through noise-canceling settings. I don’t use Siri or voice commands, and I couldn’t care less about cycling through the noise canceling settings (which you can set 3 favorites on the app and cycle through them). I just use completely noise-canceling headphones or don’t use them at all. So three of the four controls are either incomplete or useless to me. This is a significant constraint that, luckily, may be addressed with firmware/software upgrades in the very near future.

Another little problem I encountered a few days ago was that the charging case needed some power in order to link the earbuds with a fresh smartphone. I was in the gym and wanted to connect my headphones to my iPad (I had previously paired them only with my iPhone). That’s when I noticed the Bluetooth connection button was on the case itself, and since the case was dead, I couldn’t pair the ear buds with a new device.

The Bose QuietComfort earbuds still had half a charge, so I could have used them. As far as I can tell, the only method to link a new device right now is via the Bluetooth pairing button on the case, and if the case isn’t charged, you’re out of luck till you charge it. This is an odd and inconvenient operational choice. With the Sony WF, I could enter a Bluetooth connection by touching and holding both earphones for 8 seconds. This is also something that can be fixed in the future with a software/firmware upgrade.

Overall, I am quite pleased with the sound and noise cancellation capabilities of these ear buds. I was able to hear background noise and music while at the gym with a podcast or music playing and full noise cancellation enabled with the Sony WF. The noise canceling alone (without anything playing) removes practically all spoken and music background noise and entirely eliminates deep bass sounds like air conditioning or a car wash in the parking lot using these Bose ear buds. While music is playing, all sounds are muffled. I can focus on the podcast better than any earbuds I’ve used in the past, and nearly as well as an over-the-ear headset like the Sony WH or Bose QC 35 while listening to podcasts with spoken words.

For the high price, the Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling earbuds don’t provide much better value than the Sony WF, which is presently on sale for 178 USD, or the Apple AirPods Pro, which is currently on sale for 199 USD. I would buy these Bose ear buds without hesitation at their usual retail pricing of $228 and $249, respectively, but at the sale rates, it’s probably along the lines of “you get what you pay for,” meaning a proportionally better quality for a proportionately higher cost.
