Great upgrade from the QC 35II. Pairs nicely with the SB 700 and Bass 700. Great sound as expected. Easy setup great battery life and good fit. Only used inside. No idea about walking around with them and definitely will never be able to comment about using them during exersize
Bose noise cancelling headset
I’d like Bose to see the photos below, I have a family of 4 we all have many Bose products.
The below photos below tell the story of my faulty product
However this one pair is terrible. It’s faulty in every way .
Out of 4 pairs this is the one that surprised me in what happened to it.
I feel they should be replaced, this shouldn't happen to your expensive product.
I hope you reply to this .
Nice update on previous models
Love the feel and the look but for some reason it keeps on disconnecting from bluetooth when Im listening/watching my tv. Customer Service has been very helpful but still having the same issue.
Great headphones, as expected from Bose
Love these cans, the controls are easy and intuitive, the sound is great. I've had the QC35s and these are definitely a usability upgrade (they sound similar to the 35s)

The Best Noise Cancelling Headphones On The Market
Noise cancelling? Best out there.
Sound Quality? Best I have heard (I have owned Bose QC35II's and Sony WH-1000XM3's).
Touch Controls? Easy to use and very straight forward along with the tactile buttons being in good positions that become fairly intuitive after a couple uses.
Size and Packaging? A bit disappointed that they do not fold down a bit smaller but the hard case supplied is excellent, especially the cable storage compartment with the magnetic lid.
Ok, these headphones cost me $545 and are by far the most expensive ...headphones I have owned but they are also the best. I have owned Bose Quiet Comfort 35II's and Sony WH-1000XM3's and these are, in my opinion, a much better and a higher quality feeling headphone than both of those. The latest firmware update has added an equalizer to the Bose Music app, which allows you to customize the sound to your taste rather than lumping you with a one-size-fits-all sound signature (not that it is terrible, just a little customization can go a long way to getting the best out of your products). Build quality is excellent, never feeling like they are going to fall apart. The most comfortable ear cups along with a soft silicone-feel head strap mean i can wear these for a full 8-9 hour work day (which I have done on multiple occasions) without even feeling like I'm wearing headphones. Overall, the best out there and I would definitely buy them again given the opportunity.
Takes getting used to
I received the Bose 700 in white and rose gold for a birthday present from hubby. It takes some getting used to with the size as they completely cover the ears. If you don't normally wear headphones like that I'd suggest wearing for just a minute or two at a time. You can turn off the noise cancelling option which is good.
To be honest these are not the type of headphones I would choose for myself as I have a small head but am still grateful to hubby for his thoughtfulness.
Bad Decision...Don't buy
After using the Bose QC35II for almost 2-3 years I decided to upgrade and buy the latest Bose 700 hoping this will be a better product but I'm disappointed. The comfort is not even close as wearing QC35 for over 10 hours on a long flight it was the most comfortable headset compared to 700 anything over 2-3 years you feel the tension and marks around your ears. Connectivity is another major issue Bose 700 promotes feature saying connect to 2 devices at the same time but fails to connect to the primary device. It also has issues working with iPho...ne which I have the latest 11Pro Max but it drops out as you use the device and only leads to numerous restarts of the headset hoping it will connect. Product care is hard to reach and have not responded to any of my online requests. Again the lesson learned is not everything expensive is better and this product from Bose has been a big letdown.
Not bad, but not perfect
These are pretty good headphones, they’re comfortable, and good and clear.
I was expecting great things from these, especially because of the price, and mostly they’ve delivered. The noise cancelling is good, but I’m known for having the kind of hearing where I could hear a pin drop in the next suburb, sooo... they cut out most noise, but I can still have a conversation even when they’re set on noise cancelling level 10.
I’ve never had noise cancelling headphones before so I have nothing to compare them with.
I got them because we have troublesome neighbours who play music. I haven’t had to test them yet, but I have high hopes for them
Purchased in December 2019 at Qantas for A$599.00.

Super comfy, noise cancelling next level
Much comfier than the QC35.
New buttons are a better feel and the tap functions to pause and play music are really handy.
Google assistant feature is a nice to have but not essential.
But wow, the noise cancellation is incredible.
Best out of all of the Bose headhones to date.
Pretty expensive but that comes as no surprise.
Questions & Answers
Frequently Asked Questions about Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

The 700 has slightly better noise-cancelling capability and allows you to transition through 11 levels of noise-cancellation from full isolation to full transparency mode. The 700 has four adaptive microphones compared to the two on the QC35 II, and also features a touch interface for gesture-based controls (for example, double-tapping the ear cup to Play/Pause audio, and swiping up or down to change the volume).
Latest Consumer Questions
Is there any know issues while using this with IOS/ iPhone?? Question is based on a review on Amazon “ Incredibly incredibly disappointing!
Do not buy if you have IOS. It currently is a known bug. How they released this product knowing this is beyond me. Massive breach of trust. Returning them. (BOSE ID: 120 954 0976)‘’
