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

The QuietComfort Earbuds from Bose are massive True Wireless in-ears, both in terms of their physical dimensions, their sonic characteristics and their really good active noise suppression. Bose doesn’t promise too much, especially with the ANC, and only their over-ear models actually deliver a similarly effective reduction in ambient noise. As far as the concept of a thoroughly effective interplay between ANC and transparency mode is concerned, I was a bit dissatisfied with their wind sensitivity and the artificial sound produced by the microphones. But an on/off switch for these functions would quickly remedy this. I would also be critical of the remote control and App, which both offer too few options.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds

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.
