"Wonderful product, a worthy successor to the QC35."

Andrej Nikolajevic | 26 September 2019 | Color: Black

  • Pros:
    Comfort is amazing (=QC35)
  • Pros:
    Design is amazing and sleek
  • Pros:
    Sound is exactly what you expect from bose, crisper than qc35 but still flat, equalizer solves it.
  • Con:
    Need some time to break in for maximum comfort (I just put them over the box for 24h)

A short review and comparison with QC35s by Bose (XM3s did not cut it for me because no multi-point connection)

Controls are not at all an issue, very intuitive once you use it for a few hours.

Comfort was a big concern for me. I read reviews that it is not on par with QC35s. It is near-identical to QC35s once you wear the headphones in a bit. I personally put mine around the box they came it and overnight the comfort was vastly improved (clamping force reduces greatly, tip from reddit).

Mics are amazing, they work brilliantly in any situation. Biking, walking, in a crowded or quiet environment, they pick up your voice very well and are in another league compared to the QC35. Noise cancelling though is near-identical to QC35s, I'd say the 700s are maybe 10% better.

Sound is similar, although the NC700s do have a noticeably crisper sound to them when compared to the QC35. Both headphones sound flat, but an equalizer solves that wonderfully, and this is where you can really see a big difference between the two. I use Dolby Atmos.

Finally, the design is much better compared to the QC35. I'm by no means someone who cares too much about that, but hold both of the headphones in hand and there's no comparison. All my devices use usb-C and I appreciated the addition. I tried to take the QC35s, I really did. I wanted those extra $100. I wanted to dislike it because I've seen all the reviews. But for the difference, the 700s are just a better headphone.

I should mention, if you have the QC35s, upgrading is not worth it if you're tight on cash. You get slightly better NC, call quality, audio quality, and design. Otherwise, the 700s are an absolute go for me, and I am very happy with the purchase.
