Bose Headphones and Earbuds Guide: Which One Should You Buy?

Bose is known for its sophisticated and stylish headphones and earbuds, but with so many on the market, it can be difficult to know which one to buy. We decided to go straight to the source and ask a Bose employee – Mehul Trivedi, category director, at Bose wearable audio. Moving on, Trivedi shares four of its product picks, outlining what makes each one unique and which one you would choose for each activity you most plan to do.

Bose’s most advanced headphones (and also the most expensive), the Headphones 700 have world-class adjustable noise cancellation, a sleek modern lightweight design with built-in voice controls and a battery that lasts up to 20 hours. The high-fidelity audio, capacitive touch control and reliable Bluetooth connectivity make these headphones ideal for your work/play environment.

What makes it unique?

The patented active noise canceling technology uses microphones, both inside and outside the earcups, to follow the sounds around you and immediately produce an opposing signal to neutralize them. With adjustable noise reduction you determine how much or how little of the outside world you hear. In addition, the talk mode allows you to simultaneously adjust the noise cancellation and pause your music for a quick chat.

Whether you’re running, working from home, or browsing the shops, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds are ideal for getting you in the zone. With a secure fit and comfortable design, the QuietComfort Earbuds are designed with effective noise cancellation and high-fidelity audio.

What makes it unique?

Made with Bose’s patented soft silicone StayHear Max tips, these earbuds stay in place and provide a better fit. An umbrella-shaped mouthpiece distributes pressure evenly across your ear for comfort, stability and passive noise cancellation.

“We spent a lot of time making sure our new QuietComfort Earbuds were the most effective noise-cancelling in-ear headphones ever,” says Trivedi. “But they also sound incredible and are a joy to wear and use.”

These headphones offer the best combination of noise-cancelling performance and premium comfort, plus patented acoustic technology for deep, clear sound with adjustable EQ so you can tune your music to your liking. They offer a perfect balance of peace, comfort and sound that you will enjoy all day long.

What makes it unique?

The QuietComfort 45 headphones give you 24 hours of playtime on a single charge. Enjoy Aware Mode as it brings the outside world in with microphones that pick up the sounds around you and play them naturally through the headphones.

“What started as a travel product became a product that makes every day better and easier for millions of people around the world,” says Trivedi.
