Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones hands-on test


We can say that Bose wants to compete with JBL and Philips, which have long been releasing wireless headsets with «Noise Cancelling» noise cancellation. One thing we can tell you right now: Bose headphones are the best.

Bose QuietComfort 35: surround, differentiated sound

As expected, the QuietComfort 35 test results were impressive. The bass is reproduced expressively and voluminously, the mids are detailed and differentiated, the highs are also very good. So Beth Orton’s rhythm-filled pop song «1973» sounds just as good as the rock song «RU Mine?» by Arctic Monkeys. Since the headphones have a very balanced sound, other genres will also please their owner: classical, jazz and hip-hop will make a good impression. The voice of the performers in these headphones also sounds excellent.

The noise cancellation hides disturbing frequencies, as expected from Bose, very well. This means: monotonous, low sounds are almost inaudible. Noise from the bus is leveled as well as the rumble of the train. Noise reduction will not remove voices, squeals or sirens, but they sound muffled. However, for people with sensitive ears, noise-cancelling headphones may be uncomfortable. They may feel a constant increase in air pressure. That is why we recommend that you definitely try these headphones before buying.

Comfortable and generously equipped

Bose QuietComfort 35As over-ear headphones, the Bose QuietComfort 35 sits on top of the ear. But thanks to the semi-open design, despite the summer heat, the ears do not overheat. This is facilitated by the coating of the ear pads, made of artificial leather. The workmanship is good, although the headphones are mostly made of plastic parts. Equipment deserves special attention.

In addition to a durable protective case, the package includes cables with 2.5 and 3.5 mm plugs, an adapter for using headphones on an airplane, and a micro-USB cable for charging. The headphones are connected to the playback device via Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX or NFC. In terms of battery endurance, however, this model is a little behind compared to competitors: the manufacturer indicates about 20 hours of battery life, but in practice we got only 17. But you can see information about the battery status of the headphones on the screen of your mobile phone .

Alternative: Sony MDR-100ABN

Let’s be honest, these Sony headphones don’t sound like the QuietComfort 35. Noise canceling works well too, but not as well as Bose. But the price really deserves attention. Their average cost is about 23 thousand rubles. If you’re willing to make a small compromise in terms of sound quality and don’t want to pay around £29,000 for the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones, then the MDR-100ABN is definitely a better choice.
