Pros and cons

According to our earbuds expert
  • Active noise canceling reduces distracting, ambient noise and white noise.
  • You can hear a natural sound reproduction, thanks to Bose's TriPort-technology.
  • Noise canceling earbuds don't drown out ambient noise as much as noise-canceling headphones.

"Ashamingly poor quality control by Bose."

Filip Nikolic | 27 November 2019

  • Pros:
    Great noise isolation in loud environments
  • Con:
    Uncomfortable hissing in the right earbud, even after replacement
  • Con:
    Impossible to use because of quality problem

I walked in store and bought these headphones (black and blue cable). The right earbud did not work properly. It produced loud, hissing sound that varied over time (like wind blowing) and differs from that coming out over the left earbud. It makes using ANC in an indoor space impossible. If I try to, I get a headache.

I replaced the product and the replacement had the same problem.

I bought ANC headphones to increase my productivity and quality of work, and instead I got a huge time waste and annoyance. Save yourself time and don't buy these headphones.

"All the benefits of noise canceling headphones but in a tiny"

Rados Lazarevic | 21 February 2019

  • Pros:
    Incredible that they managed to pack a noise canceling functionality into such a small package!
  • Con:
    A but uncomfortable to wear, but nothing major

Great experience, they are small enough to take up very little space in the pocket, but they provide real noise-cancelling experience!

Ashamingly poor quality control by Bose.
