Are these the best noise cancelling in the market?
The Bose QuietComfort 2 has been one of the most popular headphones nowadays, whether during travel, online gaming, and some in the Zen mode. Though these headphones are no longer new in the market, many have also been scouring the internet to find comprehensive details about it. And some of you might want to purchase it, but you just need that push to do so. Well, we heard you and we are here to give you that push or pull in purchasing one.
Bose has been drawing the attention for releasing noise cancellation headphones in the market. Even Sony has been catching up with the trend set by Bose for techy headphones. However, Bose has been aiming to give their consumers the comfort that they want to have by creating the quietest headphones. Being labeled as the ANC trendsetter is just a bonus for that vision.
To start with the review treatment, let’s go over with each specifications one by one:
I’m quite torn in between loving and hating the design. The bulky and plastic design is quite disappointing. Though the matte plastic coat does not affect its durability, and it feels lighter than other headphones, it looks like a cheap one per se. The only good thing with the design is that it’s like any other headphones you can avoid people talking to you and the added noise cancelling features greatly helps on that matter. The Bose QuietComfort 2 is good for the introverted ones.
Sound and Mic Quality:
In terms of its sound quality, the QuietComfort 2 did an excellent job in blocking unwanted noise, even not turning on the ANC. This makes a valid proof that their ear pad design is effective. As I have played different music genres, I concluded that the tonal balance is neutral and sound is soft to the ears. This means that the dynamic range is limited and dull. The soundstage is just average compared to the Sony MDR-1000x. Battery life is around 20 hours with moderate usage and turned on ANC. Bose is not well known for having great bass, so when you want to hear big disco with these headphones expect that you can’t dance along with it.
As for the call quality, the Bose QC35 2’s mic is not wind resistant, making my voice sound muffled and unclear.
The Bottom line:
Overall, the Bose QC35 II is enticing to travelers, commuters, and students who prefer alone time. These headphones are reliable for noise cancelling headphones, battery life, and with the google assistant easy to control headphones. This Bose QC35 II is also one of the most affordable headphones in the market today.
