Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 {Review}

Sometimes I like to make myself feel old by thinking back to all of the outdated products and technology from my childhood. The VCR that had a remote that needed to be plugged in, the telephone with the rotary dial... heck, I remember being so proud to have saved up money to buy a cassette tape with my favorite music.

These days, I try to appreciate the advancements that have made my life so much easier and more convenient. And, one thing that I know I have never once missed? Wires.

There are so many cords running to and from just about every device that they make me crazy. They're always tangled, being yanked on, catching on things, and, in general, just in the way. Can't every single thing be wireless?

Although that time hasn't quite yet been reached, at least I have now found the absolute perfect way to enjoy unparalleled music in top-of-the-line comfort, incredible clarity, and the utmost in cord-free convenience thanks to the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700.

Known for being passionate about inventing new technologies that truly benefit people, Bose's Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 were designed to deliver everything you expect — and things you never imagined possible.

Along with removing the hassle of wires (ugh!), these amazing headphones have a sophisticated, comfortable design, extended battery life, easy voice control, access to your choice of voice assistant, incredible noise cancellation, and much more. In short, they're able to turn every moment into an extraordinary experience by making your music come alive and your life more convenient and connected. There's nothing more that I could ask for!

Considering that everything I read about the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 made them sound like a spectacular pair of wireless headphones, I was excited to see them in person to give them a try.

Even before I had them out, the Bose Headphones 700 were making a great impression simply from the stylish and impressive box and inner case. I love companies that create packaging that not only keeps their products safe and secure, but also make users excited just from the way they look!

As soon as I removed these headphones, however, it was clear that Bose went much further than a snazzy box. The Bose Headphones 700 are all clean lines and classic design with the wireless, modernized, lightweight, stainless-steel headband and angled earcups to provide a comfortable fit for all-day listening.

My next step included downloading the Bose Music App and, in a matter of seconds, I had my headphones activated, connected, and was taking a virtual tour of their many amazing features.

Bose really couldn't have made these headphones any easier to use!

I adore that they came already charged and truly, I had my music playing within a minute or two. All that is left to do is simply adjust to your size and start wearing! The large L and R make it a no-brainer which direction is front and back...

...and the controls for volume, answering calls, talking to your voice assistant, skipping tracks, and more are, quite literally, right at your fingertips. Just intuitively swipe left, right, up or down on the right earcup and your music responds immediately.

Not to mention that the three dedicated buttons provide direct access to some of the headphones' most important features. Whether you are selecting just the right noise cancellation level for your environment (there are 11 so that you can maximize it to eliminate distractions, minimize it so you can hear everything around you or just choose from nine other levels in between) or jumping into Conversation Mode to pause the music and let surrounding noise in (perfect to order coffee, chat with a coworker or listen for your boarding call at the airport), the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 allow you to do it all with ease.

As well as features that one would expect with high quality headphones, Bose took things a step further by including their unique Bose AR. This new audio augmented reality technology and platform uses a combination of motion sensors built right in to superimpose sound on top of the real world.

So, while most AR efforts are focused on overlaying simulated visual information (virtual roller coaster, anyone?) Bose's AR products detect your head orientation and body movement while you wear them. Then, Bose AR-enhanced apps use this information along with location data from your mobile device to offer you audio content tailored to where you are and what you're doing. There is a whole slew of Bose AR apps available for iOS users to experience this coolness!

Overall, I love the power, sound, and comfort that the Bose Headphones 700 provide and I couldn't be happier not having to deal with the hassle of wires getting caught, twisted, knotted, pulled, and more. Add to that having the ability to wear these just about anytime, anywhere due to their lightweight feel and it's easy to see why these can go from work to play to sport with ease!

I have especially been enjoying the ease of controlling the noise cancellation technology, as a tap or two allows me to move from complete isolation to full awareness of my surroundings all without having to remove these comfortable headphones from my ears.

Plus, Bose didn't only include a single microphone into these headphones, there is an adaptive four-microphone system that automatically adjusts to the environment to isolate your voice from competing noises. No more yelling or wondering if the person on the other end can understand what you are saying!

Really, my only complaint is that everyone else in my household keeps trying to borrow these from me far too often!

After having had the chance to thoroughly try out the Bose Headphones 700, I'm clearly impressed with the comfort, fit and feel, as well as the convenience that they provide for all aspects of a busy life and the overall amazing clarity, sound and removal of distractions that they provide. No matter if I am relaxing at home, outdoors mowing the lawn, boarding a plane or just living day to day, these are likely coming along as well!

Whether you are shopping for an athlete, a commuter, a traveler, a music-lover or more, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 would make an absolutely amazing gift. Your recipient is sure to love the sleek look, custom fit, perfect balance of function and design, and all-around great sound no matter if they're going for a run, rocking out, flying across the country or jumping onto a conference call.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are available now for $399.99. For more information and to find out more about all of Bose's innovative and award-winning products, visit and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
