In this review, I’ll discuss two new headphones from Bose. These new headphones provide lots of functionalities. One of them is a headphones, and the other is an earbuds. These headphones offer amazing audio quality, and I’ll discuss the pros and cons of these products to help you make a decision.
Let’s start with the over-the-ear headphones and their design. The design is elegant, and carries the same Bose’s DNA. The frame is made from aluminium. And there’s a head cushion for comfort. The same thing applies for the ear cubs. These are over-the-ear headphones.
Let’s now discuss the specs and features. The headphones supports 3 different modes. The headphones support Quiet Mode, Aware Mode and Immersive Mode. THe headphones support a feature called Windmode. Using the mics of the headphones, the headset detects wind noises around you and cancels it for a better experience. However, when Noise Cancelation is enabled, Windmode feature will stop.
The headphones support a feature called CustomTune technology. This technology determines your ear shape and adjust the audio accordingly to provide the best experience. The headphones support bluetooth 5.3, which offers great range, it has integrated mics and the battery lasts for 24 hours. Fully charging the battery takes 3 hours. It has 2 buttons, one for changing between modes and answer/end phone calls and the other is the bluetooth pairing button. And since it supports bluetooth 5.3, it means it can connect to two different devices. There’s also a button to allow you to switch between connected devices. There are button easily allows you to connect to the computer. You can increase/decrease the audio using touch input.
Based on out experiments, the Noise Cancelation is excellent, which is something we’re used to from Bose. Phone calls were also excellent, and the audio was very clear. The headphones is lightweight and comfortable, it is a great option to use it for extended periods of time. The headphones come with two different colors: black and smokey white. These headphones from Bose will last for 3 or 4 years, considering all the technologies they support.
The app allows you to update it and change the settings among many other things. This, however, comes with a price. The headphones costs 466 USD, The box includes a pouch, 3.5mm to 2.5mm cable It also has a USB-C to USB-A cable to charge it.
Noise Cancelation is great, great connectivity and great comfort.
Charging time could’ve been better considering the new charging technologies available in the market.
Let’s now discuss this in-ear headphones:
Bose uses silicone tips to help in fixating them in the ear, The case has a unique design. You’ll take a bit of time to get them right in the ear, as you have to keep the stem out of the ear. The stem helps them to have space to pack all the technologies and parts needed for them.
The case has a pairing button to help connecting them to different devices, it has a USB-C port to recharge it. The headphones support the same three modes as the previous headphones. They are the Quiet, Aware and Immersive modes. The Aware mode supports a feature called ActiveSense, which help minimizing noises around you. The Immersive Mode helps with Noise Cancelation and Spatial Audio. The headphones supports a feature called Custom Tune technology. This feature determines the shape of your ear to help provide the best audio experience, it supports bluetooth 5.3 with good range.
The battery lasts for a long time along with the case’s battery. The mic supports Noise Cancelation. The battery lasts for 6 hours, and the case provides 24 hours. Charging it for 20 minutes provides 2 hours of usage, it supports IPX4, which is great during exercises. However, you should’t use it while swimming.
The earbuds has a touch area, which is the longest part of the earbuds. Using it, you can change between content, rasie/decrease audio and answer phone calls. Based on our experiments, they are very comfortable to use. This is an example of Bose’s engineering. The audio performance and isolation were excellent. However, we hoped that the calling experience was better.
If you want to have the perfect calling experience, then your phone and the headphones must be from the same manufacture. And since it supports bluetooth 5.3, you can connect them to two different devices, it also comes with two colors: black and smokey white.
The price is 346 usd, it is a very good investment. There are more expensive headphones, but the balance these headphones support make them a great option.
The box includes additional silicon tips with better design for more comfort. Make sure to use the perfect silicon tips for optimal audio quality. The headphones supports auto-detect, which stops of play content when they are removed from the ear. The box also includes a charging cable. During the first week, you might be irritated while using these in-ears headphones, but you’ll get used to them.
These headphones can make any audio a spatial audio. Both of these headphones support Bose Music app, available on iOS and Android. The app allows you to control the headphones and download updates. These are great options for audiophiles, as they prefer devices that produce high-quality audio.
I advise you to take break sessions. The type of content you listen to also makes a huge difference. The higher the audio quality, the better the performance will be. These headphones are an extended investment that should last for 2 to 3 years. Both headphones support Google’s fast pairing with all devices that have Snapdragon CPU.
Evaluate your needs before taking a decision, if you want headphones for phone calls, then I advise you to buy ones from the manufacturer of your smartphone.
However, these headphones are excellent and support all range of devices. This is the end of this review. Let me again remind you that should evaluate your needs before making a decision. .
