Bose headphones

An American dream

Amar Bose founded the Bose Corporation as a tech nerd in 1964, researched and taught at the world-famous MIT and in the early eighties launched the first noise cancelling headphones – as a headset for pilots. Bose was and still is good for innovation throughout its long history. Driven by fundamental research and supported by clever product marketing, Bose is today one of the most valuable brands in the audio market.

Editor's recommendations: Bose

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II continues to be a highly recommended Bluetooth headset with great noise-cancelling capability, enhanced with the Google Assistant, making it a bit more equipped for the future. As such, there is now one more reason to consider these headphones—anyone who likes to have messages read to them and is also happy to communicate orally with Google can do so comfortably with these headphones.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II

All in all, the Bose SoundsSport Wireless leave a good impression, except for that annoying noise problem you’ll experience for yourself should you run into windy weather. Oh, and let’s not forget that rather unsightly aesthetic issue once you’ve slid these into your ears and given yourself a quick glance in the mirror. Other than that, things are good. The StayHere+ earbuds are incredibly robust, with a sound that’s incredibly impressive as far as I’m concerned. Controls are user-friendly, while a runtime of approximately 5 hours is more than sufficient for most sporting applications. What’s more, Bluetooth and NFC pairing makes tangling cables a thing of the past. As long as you can learn to love the look of those earpieces, the Bose SoundSport Wireless is a real winner.

The Bose SoundSport Free Wireless lacks very little. After a small adjustment to the equalizer, the sound is powerful and multi-layered with good volume; in other words, there are headphones with cables that sound significantly worse than the SoundSport Free does without them. The earbuds sit well and securely in the ear and allow for energetic movements to or with the music, even in bad weather. Only the somewhat fiddly remote and their strikingly over-obtrusive appearance cast a small shadow on the otherwise extremely successful True Wireless headphones from Bose. They should interest a wide range of users, not just athletes.
