Bose Quiet Comfort 35 Series 1 & 2 Review

Bose Quiet Comfort 2

The Bose Quiet Comfort series has long been regarded as one of the best headphones in the industry. The Quiet Comfort 35 is especially appealing for the business traveler, as once turned on the noise canceling kicks in.  The accompanying sounds of typical air travel, chatter, engine noise, children, etc.  are all dampened if not completely eliminated with the Quiet Comfort 35.

The headphones come in black or silver and is compact and lightweight.  A carrying case comes included along with a charging cable and an airline audio adapter.  The Quiet Comfort 1 retails for $329.95 while the series 2 version retails for $349.95.  There is also a custom version of the series 2 version which retails for $449.95.  Both series have exceptionally long battery life lasting about 20 hours and both are made to be both impact resistant and flexible.  The series 1 & 2 versions have bluetooth connectivity while the series 2 also has Google Assistant built in.  Take advantage of the Bose connect app.  This allows for updates and better headphone integration.  The series 2 version also allows the user to adjust the noise canceling feature between 3 levels while simultaneously auto adjusting itself based on the level of noise surrounding the user.  Regardless whether the volume is up or down, the clarity doesn’t change.  It’s literally crystal clear sound with optimum volume EQ.  

My only concern with these headphones is that they might slip off while working out and they will definitely slip off while running.  I haven’t had too many issues with the headphones coming off while working out.  The only exception would be sit ups or anything that involves laying down, but it doesn’t happen often enough for me to switch to another brand of headphones.
