“These are so comfortable, sound high quality, and are great for noise cancelling - almost too good because my mom has snuck up on me a couple times now lol. There is also an awareness mode if you don’t want noise cancelling and switching between the 2 is just pressing a button. DISCLAIMER: I will say however, these things seem to be sensitive to… loud noise I guess? Not sure exactly what it is, maybe it’s metallic sounds, I just know when I load the dishwasher while wearing these there is uncomfortable feedback when the silverware clanks together so I’ve learned to be careful about that now. I wear these at the gym when I’m doing cardio, but I probably wouldn’t wear them when weightlifting because of the noise issue. This is the only reason I didn’t give it a 5-star review. Everything else I love”

“I used to always buy cheap headphones and earbuds, only to have to buy another pair every few months. I decided to invest in a nicer set and I'm very happy I went with these. I compared these Bose headphones to Sony and other brands, but ended up buying these because they went on sale for $100 off. The use I get out of these is very much worth a couple hundred dollars. I use these headphones every day for the gym (weightlifting), listening to music, and for watching shows. They're very comfortable and I like that they have two modes: Quiet (noise-cancelling) and Aware (you can hear things around you more easily, I like this for walks outside). The souns quality is great, battery life is great, they look sleek, and I highly recommend :)”

“I bought these six months ago. These are the best headphones I have ever owned. My ears are really sensitive so I wanted something that would be comfy to wear for long periods of time. The padding on these are perfect. The noise canceling is really great as well, especially on airplanes. Charge lasts forever, I usually charge it for an hour and then use it for a few days before charging it again.”

“High quality sounding speakers and the noise cancelation is great on them.
Pros - Speakers quality great
noise canceling function works great
Cons - Price
Cheap plastic even feels cheap
Comes with the shortest charger I've ever seen in my life along with a very short aux cord attachment
Again the headset itself feels very cheap so you have to handle it with extreme care in my opinion
But these are all simply my opinions do what you will with the information.”

“These are so comfortable. The music quality is pretty good for the price. The battery life is great. I wear these to the gym and I also wear them on my runs. If it weren’t for the size they would probably be my #1 headphones. I say that because I can’t picture myself wearing these to the grocery store without looking goofy lol. Ear buds are still my go to for that. To my surprise they don’t slip off during exercise. The ANC is great. Put these on, listen to brown noise, and enjoy them.”

“What I really like about these headphones is the ability to change the bass in the app. If you want a lot for working out you can turn it up and then turn it back down when you’re. I also really like the fact that they have noice cancelation while also having a transparency mode. I’ve been using these for the gym and haven’t have much problem at all with how they stay on even with deadlifts and bench press.”

“I’ve had these headphones for a month and this is my honest review. They are super comfortable to wear the the sound cancelling is great but I wish they were a little louder but that’s not a deal breaker. I mostly wear them to the gym and they do slide off when I’m benching. One thing they started doing recently is glitching when a song is playing and this weird noise comes through them but it’s fixed by pausing the song and playing it again. They also pause when I move one side off of my ear to hear someone but don’t resume playing unless I hit play again on my phone which is a little annoying but could be user error. Overall they are great headphones, I just hope that glitching issue doesn’t become a bigger issue.”

“What a treat to own these headphones. They’re super noise canceling, perfect for the plane or the gym. FYI, if you use the cord to connect to your phone, that renders the headphones useless for a call. Only if you’re connected via Bluetooth does phone call connectivity work”

“I first fell in love with this series of headsets years ago. I borrowed my wife’s (I had gotten her as a gift) QC 35 because my mom wanted to talk to me on the phone and I wanted to cook my steak. Hold on a sec mom. Ok. Wow. These are great.
After that call, I fired up Apple Music and sold! My own on the way before I finished dinner.
Over the years we have had a couple fail. Bose customer support was great.
Recently I decided to keep an older set for the gym only. I though I would try Beats comparable model to have a home office set. The sound quality was great. After about an hour, they became uncomfortable and I had to take them off for a while.
These are like two pillows on my ears.
My wife is away for the weekend visiting friends. I wore them most of today working around the house, even while taking a nap for while. Still feeling good!”

“Too many concessions for the price
These have excellent noise cancellation and are comfortable. That’s about as far as the positives go.
For $250 you should expect more. My main issues with these headphones are:
The robotic voice that screams “QUIET!” whenever you turn on noise cancellation.
The time it takes to announce which devices it is connected to each time you power them on.
There is no auto off feature as far as I can tell. If I don’t turn them off before I go to bed they’re still on when I wake up.
No ps4 compatibility
No Xbox compatibility (even with the supplied cable)
The app you are forced to download in order to use them.
Any click or tap is amplified while noise cancellation is enabled. If you plan on wearing these on the plane, every time someone in your vicinity unlocks their seat belt you will know. Forget about trying to do the dishes while wearing these.
The quality of music playback is sufficient but will not blow you away by any means.
These barely outpace the $40 Wyze noise cancelling headphones I had hoped to replace.
I do not consider myself an audio snob but for $250 I should at least be impressed, and I’m not.”
