The Bose QuietComfort 35 noise cancelling headphones may have recently saved one of my favorite past times. And that past time is sitting in my favorite coffee shop, listening to good music, while writing about anything from cancer, to Bitcoin, to even aliens.
Up until a month ago, I’d been using the regular ol’ headphones that came with my smartphone. You know the ones that have the long annoying white chord? The chord that you accidentally rip out of the jack if you turn your head too fast while working out. It’s always a great feeling to have those little earbuds yanked from your ears.
Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise Cancelling Headphones: The First Time
Over the years I’ve “clearly” heard that anything made by Bose was beyond incredible. I first had the opportunity of trying out a pair of the Bose QuietComfort 35 noise cancelling headphones a few years back, while at work. They were amazing. There were several things I noticed right away about the headphones.
- Comfort. When I first tried out the Bose QuietComfort 35 noise cancelling headphones, I immediately noticed just how comfortable they were. They might look big and bulky to some, but they are actually very lightweight with plush headphones. To me the design of a headphone that goes around the ear instead of inside of it makes better sense.
- Only the good stuff will be heard when wearing Bose noise cancelling headphones. It’s like you put these things on and there is no more real world. For example, in the coffee shop. Now, I’m no longer forced against my will, to hear about someone’s overly-expensive wedding plans, their multiple relationship failures, or hear anyone blow off political steam while I’m simply trying to write an article about “why a person should believe in the future of Bitcoin“. I can now simply listen to my “Mood” (not to be confused with moody) playlist on Spotify, clearly, even as the world falls apart around me.
- Clarity. Other than being comfortable and allowing me to shut out the entire world in just a few moments, my Bose QuietComfort 35 noise cancelling headphones literally offer some of the best sound quality of any headphone I’ve ever known. I can honestly say that my experience with Bose has greatly exceeded my expectations. Imagine, blocking out any of the distracting noises around you and only being able to hear your favorite music, crystal clear.
What the Experts Say About Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
When many people research a tech item, they start with something like Consumer Reports. And as you might imagine, Consumer Reports gives Bose smashing reviews on their headphones.
Bose essentially invented the category more than a decade ago. With other brands entering this specialized arena, though, you may be wondering whether the newest Bose models—including the QuietComfort 25, $300, and the wireless QuietComfort 35, $350—are still top dogs. And more to the point, whether they’re really worth the money.
Based on our testing of noise-canceling models from Bose and other leading brands, the answer to both questions appears to be yes, provided that you want premier-quality noise cancellation.” – Consumer Reports
