Bose QC35 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review
Bose QC35 – One of the Best Headphones for Travel
It all started when:
- I bought an iPhone 7 and forwent the headphone jack
- I booked my flight to Thailand
These two things led me to begin researching the best wireless headphones.
I must say that I never thought I would be reviewing Bose headphones on a site where my goal was to provide readers with headphones worth buying. I’ve been in this hobby for just over 14 years and it wasn’t until about three years ago that I listened to and gave Bose headphones a rating that wasn’t mediocre.
Thus, straight to the meat of the article we go.
These headphones are LIGHT. It weighs 8.3 oz, or about 235g. This is equivalent to about 2.5 decks of cards. It feels–no, wait, it doesn’t actually feel like anything on my head.
Look and Feel:
They definitely stand out and have that “Bose” look to them if you are familiar with Bose headphones. My only issue is that because they are so light, they don’t feel like premium headphones, but that is hardly a problem at all considering Beats decided to literally put weights in their headphones to make them feel premium at the expense of portability.
As for looks, here you are:
Quite possibly the best to date. I don’t know if noise cancellation technology has evolved over the past several years or not, or if it has more to do with the acoustics of the ear cups, but these do a better job of noise cancellation than any pair I’ve heard to date.
Actually, these are the first headphones from Bose that I would say are quite fantastic. It has a pretty nice V shaped sound but for once the bass doesn’t overpower the mids and highs. Try them out for yourself. They won CNET’s June 2016 editor’s choice awards, and they won my approval!
You get a fairly big 20 hour battery life with these. I ended up only needing to charge my headphones once a week.
Due to price fluctuations I can’t say the exact price, but you can check the price here.
These headphones are probably worth it if you value portability and long battery life. The sound is incredibly fun, but they probably aren’t for the most critical of ears. For that, you may want to check out the Audio Technica DSR9BT, which I have reviewed here.
