Bose 700 headphones offer excellent noise cancellation, making them ideal for air travel or environments where you want to block out distractions. They are comfortable for extended periods and have good build quality, with an over-ear design providing a very good overall sound and mic quality. They provide good performance for music and calls, but may not be the best choice for gaming or watching TV due to poor scoring in those areas. Features include wireless and wired options, a battery life of around 20 hours, a detachable cable, app support with equalizer and customization, and active noise cancelling, but they are not sweatproof or dustproof and they are not optimized for low latency audio.

Ratings by Category

Battery Life:
5.0
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Air Travel:
4.9
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Calls:
4.5
This evaluates the product when used solely to make and receive calls. It takes into account how well the products are able to clearly reproduce the human voice, the quality of the integrated microphones and the battery life, when available, to be able to use them for longer sessions or conferences.
Portability:
4.4
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
Podcasts & Audiobooks:
4.3
This score evaluates the product when used solely to listen to podcasts or audiobooks. It takes into account sound quality and sound signature, to be able to keep voices clear and intelligible. It also considers battery life, when available, and comfort.
Music:
4.2
The Bose 700 headphones are appreciated for music listening primarily due to their neutral sound quality, which provides an enjoyable listening experience across different genres. Additionally, they have a decent soundstage that contributes to a more immersive audio experience, although they don't support lossless codecs for wireless listening.

Sound Guys

Adam Molina | June 2023
"Bose took active noise canceling and made it mainstream but eventually, the market caught up. Well, it seems like Bose was listening, because the Noise Canceling Headphones 700 is a complete redesign of its iconic product. The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have a new design, improved sound quality, a touch-sensitive gesture pad for playback controls, and even USB-C charging."
