    I give it five stars. My wife hates them she would give it 1. I put them on and that’s it. I can’t hear her any more.

    I purchased these and the Sony WH1000XM2 to compare the two. Cnet says they both have a “9” for sound quality. I would agree, they both sound excellent. The Bose won the test for its noise cancellation, performance talking to people on the phone, comfort on my head, and sound processing.Phone performance:I compared how the Bose and the Sony sounded when recording and playing back my voice with a fan running in the background. The Bose sounded like I was holding an old fashioned handset and talking in a quiet room – intimate and zero background noise. The Sony sounded like I was on speaker phone, and I could hear some background noise. (As a control I also recorded using neither and it sounded like I was on speaker but also I could hear more background noise.) This feature is important to me since I spend a lot of time on the phone and prefer my clients to not hear any background noise.Sound qualityThe Bose and Sony both have excellent sound quality for playing music. I personally prefer the sound the Sony produces. The Sony iphone app lets you choose your levels on an equalizer, and I like that. However, the Bose hears what type of music you’re playing and automatically optimizes the sound, and it does a really good job. While I would prefer to be able to set the levels if I so choose, I also appreciate that Bose is making it all easy for me, so I can truly listen to my music on random and not have to fuss with levels. The Bose iphone app doesn’t do very much at all. It does let you “find your headset” similar to the “find my phone” app, and it will apply firmware. (I’m hoping Bose will add an equalizer into its app in the future.)Noise cancellationThe Sony occasionally made me aware that noise cancellation was going on (with a whitenoise effect). The Bose on the other hand just stops the noise. There is no delay, no white noise, just quiet and your music.ControlsThe Bose controls are intuitive to find and to use. I like that the on-off control is a switch to flip on and off (rather than a button to find). Also, you can use this button to switch between devices, for example between your phone and ipad and your TV amplifier. The right earcup has three small buttons in a row together, and they control a lot of things. Volume, pause, and skip, rewind, answer/decline calls, etc. The left earcup only has the google assistant button, which I programmed to instead control the amount of noise cancellation (high, low, off). Song playback sounds much better with noise cancellation on high, and I don’t think that has to do with noise (I was in a quiet environment); the bass sounds enhanced with noise cancellation on for some reason. (In comparison, the Sony lets you swipe the earcup itself to control volume, pause, play, skip, etc. This seems great in theory, but in practice if I bumped the earcup adjusting my glasses or whatever, the music would pause. I found the Sony to be somewhat buggy in that regard. It would stop playing at times and I had to pick up my phone to get the music re-started, which is annoying.) I found the Bose controls to be more intuitive and consistent. Also, when you switch them on a voice tells you how much battery you have left, which is handy.ComfortThe Bose QuietComfort truly is comfortable. The earcups are soft, there is not a lot of clamping, and the top band is padded so it’s less annoying on the top of the head. (In comparison, the Sony do have more clamping which was uncomfortable over glasses.) I am a pilot and wear a similar headset, so I’m familiar with how headphones feel after a few hours. On-ear are not going to be as comfortable for long term wear as earbuds would be, but I was wiling to make that trade-off to get superior sound quality.StyleThe Bose are more streamlined to my head. the Sony are bulky and look geeky.ConclusionEven though the Sony produces superior sound, the litany of other features (superior noise cancellation, intuitive controls, comfort, style, & phone performance) won me over to the Bose.

    These are amazing and Bose is great! I purchased these headphones for their noise-cancellation abilities. I am an application developer and wear them at work because I am easily distracted. I don’t even listen to music with them… they just cancel just about all background noise, including random chatter from the annoying marketing department. I also use them for WebEx and Skype calls with clients. The built-in microphone is great and the noise-cancellation is helpful during those calls as well. Battery life is extremely good. I can go an entire week without having to charge the headset. It comes with an 1/8″ cable that will allow you to listen to music even when the batteries are dead. An added feature is that the bluetooth feature will allow you to connect to and hear audio from two sources at the same time. This is great if you want to connect to your iPhone and laptop at the same time.After a month of use, the headphones button would no longer work to pair to a new device. It would still power on and off, just the pairing didn’t function. Bose support was difficult to deal with. At first the support technician didn’t think there was anything wrong with the headset. After a frustrating conversation, he relented and sent me instructions for sending them back to the manufacturer. This would mean that I would be without my precious headphones for at least two weeks. The next day prior to dropping the headphones at UPS I came across The Bose Store at Tysons Corner Mall. I had the headphones with me so I decided to speak to one of the employees there. After a very brief conversation, and even though I purchased these through Amazon, he walks over to a display, gets me a brand new set of headphones and proceeds to exchange my defective ones for the new set. No other questions asked. He just said “We like to take care of our customers”. I wish customer support would have been as easy to deal with… but, things worked out.

    If you’re looking for a sign whether you should buy these or not – this is it! DO NOT PURCHASE THESE! It was unimaginably bad!!! I’ve had the QC 25’s for several years and use them in my home office to block out my neighbor noises. These QC 35’s are basically like having your loud neighbors shouting in your ears! No matter what I did the talking wouldn’t stop. The moment I opened the box I was excited to use them and get some work done but unfortunately the voice kept telling me I HAD to download the app and would not stop repeating every 60 seconds until the app was installed. I called Bose support and their suggestion was to turn off the headphones then turn them back on….voice still there. Also what kind of a suggestion is that? I also brought up the fact that the Bose rep here on amazon said you didn’t need the app to use it, so why would it not let me use the headphones without the app? They say that is incorrect, you do NEED to install the app (clearly, unless you want the voice yelling at you to install it). Ok fine, i’ll install another unnecessary app on my phone. After spending so long with bose support and installing the app, my battery was drained, so I plugged my phone into charge, then sat down to get some work done. The talking started again! The voice said it could not register the connection to my phone. My phone was too far away. All I wanted was noise cancellation, I wasn’t trying to play music or do literally anything, just sit there in silence with noise cancellation and type on my computer and it would not let me. After that I had enough, I reboxed the headphones and sent them right back. I was excited to go wireless but it’s not worth it when the item is not easily usable. I don’t want to have my phone on and next to me every time I want to use these headphones. I travel a lot. Am I expected to keep my phone on during a 15 hour flight?IN SUM: These headphones are ONLY usable with the app turned on and your phone nearby to pair with. You cannot just use noise cancellation with no active phone. Of course I would like to use my bluetooth on my phone occasionally, but not every time I use these. I’m joining the rest of the world and buying the new Sony headphones. Bose is no longer what they were.

    I’ve used Bose headphones for 7 years now, and they’re lifesavers for someone who’s noise-sensitive like me. Previous models were great against roommates, neighbors, etc. and great for traveling. I finally opted to upgrade to bluetooth “for convenience.” Sigh. The promise is so rarely as good as the reality.BLUETOOTH PROBLEMSThe bluetooth will only support two devices at once. “No problem, who uses 3 devices at once?” I thought. Well, what they don’t tell you is that it won’t auto-switch between devices, so you are constantly opening the app to adjust devices if you need to switch between MORE THAN ONE. Why one? Because one of them always has to be your phone to use the bloody app! So, it really only supports your phone plus one.Bluetooth randomly disconnects. And randomly tries to connect, beeping and beeping in your ear or just failing completely. Pain in the @$$.App constantly forgets the device, tries to connect with other people’s devices, creates delays while it figures things out, etc. Pain in the @$$.NOISE CANCELLINGNoise cancelling isn’t as good as previous models. You can’t just turn on the noise cancelling either like you could with the others. It has to be audio on.APPApp is a stupid, pathetic piece of garbage. It’s slow to connect, it’s a pain to manage connections that CONSTANTLY need to be managed (HIDDEN IN A SECONDARY MENU – ARE YOU F’ING KIDDING ME!?). And even with the stupid app I shouldn’t have to use, I still can’t adjust sound quality.BASSBass is too strong and un-smooth. And there’s no way to adjust it. I can’t listen to some of my favorite songs through these headphones.All I can say is that Bose better get their act together or I’m finally following my friends to other brands.

    After a lot of research and comparison with Sony’s WH-1000XM3 headset, I decided to purchase this Bose model. I have been wearing them for about a week and am happy with the results.When I am in the office, the noise cancellation at max level does a nice job of silencing almost everything. I can still hear voices but they are drastically muted. The building HVAC sounds completely disappear and I’ve been startled by a co-worker a few times because I didn’t hear them approach my desk when my back was turned.I work from home twice a week and have been able to completely tune out my husband who plays video games and chats with his friends rather loudly (he plays in the basement under my office). He also snuck up on me when I was wearing them and scared the crap out of me 😆The sound quality is good – I’ve had multiple conference calls and have experienced no issues. Most of the time, I wear them (without any audio) simply to block out background noise. Seems kind of silly to spend so much money for that sole reason but they really do an excellent job at noise cancellation.I recommend purchasing the extended warranty – I had issues with Bose earbuds a few years ago so I don’t completely trust the lasting quality of their products.The only minor thing I don’t care for is the light colored headband cushion and fabric material. I considered this before purchasing the rose gold color and obviously, it wasn’t enough of a deterrent for me to choose the black model. It is a comfortable band but I can see it getting dirty quickly. Especially for people who dye their hair (I dye my hair black).
