This should've come out 2 YEARS AGO! - Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Earbuds

Vitenskap og teknologi

The first 100 people to go to will get unlimited access for 1 week to try it out. You’ll also get 25% off if you want the full membership.
Bose is well known for their audio products, so we're a bit surprised these came out now and not 2 years ago. Are they too late, or did they time it right?
Correction Note: Apple AirPod Pros are $249 USD, and the Bose QC Earbuds are $279. The issue with pricing location, and we're in Canada.

    Note: We referred Apple Airpod Pros price in CAD, they are $249 in USD. The Bose QC Earbuds are $279 so they're actually more expensive... Update: It looks like a few days after this video was released, they now have the volume control on the earbuds, hurray!

    Very disappointed with Bose QC Earbuds. It seems like Bose is going backwards when rest are innovating new Tech and Feature. Only thing is good about this is ANC.... rest Bulky, Heavy, Lack of control and mediocre sound. I returned mine after a week.

    @Andrew Delashaw oh boy another one who obiously has never even listened to the Airpods Pro. They deliver an allround awesome package which is still not beaten by anyone and comparing them to Beats is just yet another blind Apple-hater insult who has no clue about the actual products.

    Would love for him to check out jabra stuff. I have owned 2 pairs so far and I think sports wise they give good value. I think he is right about the play pause being a bluetooth limitation. As fast as my jabra ones are I dont think any of the current ones are ever instantaneous. Also i think my ones work via proximity to each other rather than ear presence seeing as if you bring one bud close enough to the other one still in a ear it will start playing again lol. You have awesome weekends too James.

    I got these and the noise cancelling is solid, but I had trouble getting a good fit. The three sizes didn't work for me as they changed the size of them slightly compared to the soundsport earbuds. With the soundsport wired earbuds, the size 2 was perfect. Solid fit in both ears. Now I will add that I have weird ear shapes so when I tried these on, I found I needed a size 3 on my left and size 2 on right. Every other combination gave a poorer fit. And even still, I found myself having to adjust them often. With my ear shape they also stick out quite a bit. I feel like if they had a size 1.5 and size 2.5 it would be perfect. I'm wondering if they offer custom fits or if maybe there is another company in which I could get custom tips made because I really like these earbuds. It's a damn shame....

    WARNING!!!!!! I recently got the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and whatever software they installed when i hooked it to my computer screwed with my audio. I figure the Bose drivers, for lack of a better term, overpowered my computers other audio drivers. Had to restart and trouble shoot to get it to work again. Also, since then, my phones has been having issues with discord when connected a bluetooth headset and mic.

    This is why I hate Bose now. I was a huge fan and user to the QC II’s for years, but their app experience (and generally VERY) buggy firmware (NC700’s) caused me to distrust Bose. This was solidified even further when they required *login on an app* just so I can configure my headphones. Ended up getting Sony XM4’s instead and much happier with the overall experience, particularly the app and the bug free switching between devices. 🕷

    Unfortunately, if these are anything like their 2018/2019 implementation into the earbud market, the 'Bose Soundsport Free' had a massive battery issue after a firmware update that caused them to drain both the earbuds and the case if they sat for more than a day... Read the reviews and/or customer complaints on their forums for more details (search Bose Soundsport Free battery drain)... Though they sounded beautiful I could never recommend a pair of Bose earbuds until I was 100% sure they don't end up doing the same thing to future models... It was almost as if they were ruining their past pair to make their users buy their new version (Apple Phone scheme all over again)

    I bought the QC earbuds and returned them 2days later for the Sony wf-1000xm3(worth every penny), I agree with everything mentioned in the video, but I can say the sound quality on my Sony earbuds and Over the ear wh-1000xm4 are more consistent to each other than the Bose N700 and QC earbuds, over the ear N700 was perfect and you appreciate the price for what you get, the Bose QC earbuds sound (music and call) it's like they should be priced at 199, but you decide

    im using soundsport wireless, bose app is absolute trash, updated the software on them and removed it. You dont need the app to use them so why do they need gps and notifications? They gave vague explanation and called it a day. Only thing you get with bose you dont get with others is customers service. Called for warranty because rubber part separated from the housing making them vulnerable to water. Wrote an email day 1, received reply asking for address day 2 and after 30 minutes they confirmed the order, UPS arrived day 3 took them netherlands for warranty. Day 8 package arrived with new pair that was 2 weeks old (i guess they fixed they glue issue)
