The new $400 Bose 700 wireless noise-cancelling headphones are nearly perfect
- Bose's new 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones are a new, more premium model compared to the company's beloved QuietComfort series.
- They're comfortable, have the best noise cancelling so far, and great battery life.
- The biggest improvement over Bose's previous models is call quality: the Bose 700 cancel out ambient noise not just for you, but for the person you're speaking to, and they can actually hear you clearly in noisy environments.
- They sound great, but the sound might be a little conservative for some, at least when you compare them to the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones that can offer a more exciting sound.

Bose has released a new line of wireless noise-cancelling headphones that are a cut above the beloved QuietComfort series.
Indeed, they come with improved sound, improved noise cancelling, and perhaps most importantly of all, the best phone call quality out of any headphones I've tried. Not only do the Bose 700 cancel out ambient noise for you during a call, but they limit ambient noise for the person you're speaking with, too.As you'd expect, all these improvements come at a premium, but it's not that bad. The Bose 700 cost $400 compared to the incumbent QC35 II, which cost $350. But I wouldn't have been surprised if Bose slapped a $450 price tag on these things.
I had some good, quality time with the Bose 700. Check it out:
