If you prioritize noise cancellation and comfort for long listening sessions or flights, Bose Quiet Comfort Ultra Headphones would be ideal with their best-in-class noise isolation and comfort. For active users, the Sennheiser Momentum Sport earbuds are more exercise-friendly with a sweatproof design and secure fit, while also offering health tracking features. For immersive gaming or movies, Bose provides an excellent experience with superior sound quality, but Sennheiser's lower latency is better suited for gaming where timing is crucial. Both offer very good build quality and sound, but Bose has longer battery life, while Sennheiser supports wireless charging. Give Feedback

SoundGuys

Christian Thomas | January 2024
"The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are a credible step up from previous Bose ANC headphones, and they're built to hang tough with the competition for years into the future. No waterproofing is a bit of a letdown, but these headphones have the technical chops to make most quite happy."

Amelia Schwanke | January 2024
"We hadn't been expecting a new pair of dedicated sports buds but the surprise was nonetheless exciting. I got to try out the new buds at CES 2024 and while they have stayed true to delivering that "signature" Sennheiser sound, with a wide soundstage and strong sense of detail, it’s the extra wearable tech inside them that stands out to me against the best workout headphones."
