Customer Reviews for Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 with Alexa and Google Assistant
The call quality is amazing and crystal clear as advertised. The Noise cancelling is great, there are a lot of things that can still get through but not the things that you buy them for. Stomping people on the floors above you, vacuums, fans, are dramatically reduced to a barely detectable volume level and then if your entertainment or phone call is going through the headphones you have virtually no way of hearing a lot of those kinds of noises. Some sounds however make it through and possibly worse than if you didn’t have them on. They aren’t earplugs, so don’t expect that kind of thing but the noise reduction is tremendous and instantly very noticeable. Removing the noise cancelling/setting it to level 0 allow the microphones in the headphones to amplify your surrounding ambient noises to a level similar to if you didn’t have the headphones over your ears, but it’s still not effective enough to hear more subtle sounds and quiet speaking. It’s nice to turn your music down low enough to keep an ear out for noises/disturbances around you, remaining aware of your surroundings and still hearing the music which even when at a low volume is full, clear, balanced, as if it were turned up loud.
Rarely connects to the Bose app. Like honestly almost never. If you want to connect you have to ‘forget’ the headphones device on your phone, re-find their signal, and reconnect.
The place where the speakers connect to the headband concerns me. The way you adjust these headphones is that you one at a time or simultaneously push each headphone to your desired position along the metal bars of the headband to your desired head size. The speakers move freely and adhere around the ear and to the head really well. It’s a pretty new way that it’s built and feels fragile to me and maybe I’m wrong but I worry about one of the headphones breaking off the band if they were ever to be dropped or something.
The rubber cushion on the headband is nice and soft and I like it but I worry about it wearing out or separating from the metal band. It also came with a bump in the center of it, different from the marketing photos displaying the rubber cushion smooth and not dented in the way mine is.
The battery is rated at 20 hrs and you can check the remaining battery life to the hour and minute in the phone app or you can hold down a finger tip on the right headphone and the voice assistant will tell you, but the battery seems to deplete in less time than it states that it will. Some times I would run them for an hour after they told me a certain time and would find my battery life had not depleted only an hour but an hour and 15 minutes give or take. I have had these headphones for five weeks today. This was going on the first night of use. They also came out of the box with only four hours of battery life. It seems that when I leave them turned off stored away for maybe only 12 hrs, when coming back and turning them on the battery has depleted without even being used or the headphones left on or anything. Today rather than the usual 2 hrs and 30 minutes charge time that it has always taken almost to the very minute, it took 2 hrs and 41 minutes.
Incredible sound. Clear, separated soundstage, with very smooth clear bass,mid,and treble.
Great for any kind of music.
Great for playing guitar through an amp with
Great for gaming, maybe not for some picky gamers with different preferences but I find no issues they seem better than my gaming headset if anything.
Excellent crisp call quality
Excellent noise cancelling
Rarely connects to the Bose app without manually prompting it to
Hinges of the headband and the phones strikes me as not the most durable/slightly fragile. And if the tension wore out you may not be able adjust them anymore.
Rubber cushion on headband strikes me as not very durable and could separate from metal headband
Rubber cushion came with dent in it rather than being smooth like pictures show. Other people leaving reviews have the same issue with their headphones.
Battery isn’t the best. Arrived with only four hours.
I would still recommend trying these out they’re without a doubt some of the nicest on the market for this price. If not for COVID-19 though I probably would have gone and tried out the Sony xm4s and maybe some others to compare and be completely certain but I’m still confident these are a great product for most people considering them.
