Bose 700 – high-quality headphones with active noise reduction, elegant design, and unique features. Bose has rethought its "noise canceling" range of headphones and has persistently competed in the leadership race in this field.
The architecture of the Bose 700 Noise Canceling headphones is excellent. Especially compared to the QuietComfort35s, which started to look obsolete. The new model appears innovative, but also, as many would suggest, modern.
The simple yet sleek, minimalistic look of Bose 700 sets them apart from their competition, with quality materials and impressive assembly that challenges that of Bowers & Wilkins PX7.

2. Bose 700 Review
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 is a masterpiece noise-canceling headphone introduced in the USA and Europe in July 2019. It is clear from the first measures that the so-called $399 is a premium noise canceling headphone. Bose’s Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 package excites: the headphones, a premium travel bag, USB charging cable, wired audio cable as well as the user guide are included inside.
Bose 700 – high-quality headphones with active noise reduction, elegant design, and unique features. Bose has rethought its “noise canceling” range of headphones and has persistently competed in the leadership race in this field.
Although Bose 700 has a light constitution, its architecture prevents folding. The cups can swivel 90 degrees, but that’s all about it. The headphones can still be carried around using the carrying case provided; however, it takes a lot more space than necessary.
Sadly, the ergonomics do not allow folding.
A steel headband with gentle cushions connects both earcups without any additional components. Adjusting the size is done by sliding the cups along the cylindrical sides of the headband. The cable is of high quality, including 3.5 mm and 2.5 mm jack at each end. Indeed, not the most common format.
Due to very thoughtful ergonomics, Bose 700 headphones not only look great, but they also impress with top-tier comfort that makes listening to music for hours without a break, a piece of cake.
We would like to imagine that this elegant pair of noise cancelling headphones is not the only product launched under the 700 line.
4. Controls & Connectivity
Connecting the headphones to a source can be done in wireless and using a wired cable. The microphone records and captures sound immaculately, highly reliable, with crystal clear voice even in noisy environments.
The two control keys located on the right earcup are responsible for the activation/deactivation of Bluetooth, and to disconnect the headphones from your mobile phone with a long press.
At the forefront of the right earcup is a smart touchpad that lets you: Switch tracks by swiping forward/back; Up and down: to adjust the volume; Double-tap: start/stop, answer phone calls; Long press: decline phone calls. Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 support 5.0 Bluetooth connectivity, including SBC and AAC codecs.
Simultaneous communication with numerous sources is possible. Bose 700 is capable of tracking up to 8 unique connections made with a variety of devices: computers, laptops, smartphones, etc.
Similarly to Sony’s noise-canceling range, we expected that Bose would finally implement codecs that allow hi-rez audio transmission over wireless. Much to our surprise, Bose 700 is only compatible with standard Bluetooth codecs: SBC and AAC.
5. Noise Canceling
Similar to Bose QC 35 II and Sony WH-1000XM3, the subject of which noise-canceling headphones are more powerful in terms of “sound attenuation,” remains controversial and debatable. Everyone believes that Sony is much stronger, while some feel that the NC 700 is the more competent one. However, the critical point is that both devices are of the same tier, the best in the sector.
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700’s performance output is not adversely compromised by noise cancellation. They sound markedly better using the cable, though — better sound restitution, with a more organic sound.
The ability to diminish external noises is powerful. Its power is not spectacular in the sense that it does not exceed Sony WH-1000XM3 or Bose QuietComfort 35 II, but fine-tuning the level of noise reduction and other exciting features make the headphones more attractive.
Bose 700 implements a customizable system that offers several levels of noise reduction. Adjusting the raw power of your Noise Canceling Headphones 700 to suit a conversation, office setting or noisy airplane. The Bose AR is also a fascinating addition that will appeal to many.
Surprisingly, this time, the Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 is powered by the NC 700. The platform itself is intuitive, supplying a standard set of practical functions.
6. Sound Quality
For their part, the Bose noise cancelling headphones 700 sound pretty great. The sub-bass gets noticed excellently. And, in the contemporary era, there are still many artistic songs that use those frequencies. Yet the focus on bass, for instance, on symphonic compositions, has always seemed superfluous.
These headphones are nevertheless probably more suited to mainstream dance, house, EDM, and electronic music. The Bose NC 700 closed-design provides its listeners with a broad, open, soundstage. The placement of perceived instruments and vocals is extraordinary.
Taking into account that these headphones are Bluetooth, the outcome is compelling even without engaging the high-resolution audio codecs.
It is worth noting that you cannot enjoy the music and charge the headphones at the same time with the wired cable attached.
If you’re looking for trendy, sleek headphones with one of the most powerful noise cancelation systems on the market, this model will suit you the best. Given the beautiful reproduction of music, its features, and aesthetics, Bose700 is an attractive model regardless of price tag.
