As I noted in my review of Bose NC700, I found the pass-through functionality to be as tiring as the noise cancelling. Soon after completing that review, I concluded that the combined effect of that and the lack of a collapsing feature meant that they were not for me. Being a long-time Bose user, there was really only one option for me; the Bose QC 35 II. Here’s my review:
As long-time readers of the blog will know, I have owned, and thoroughly enjoyed, several pairs of Bose headphones. After over three years of more or less daily use and abuse, my last pair of QC35s had started acting up. When a local store ran a good offer on a pair of NC700, I went for it. Here are my thoughts.
When I replaced my Bose QC 15 with a pair of QC 25 last year, I reviewed them here on the blog. They recently started acting up. Rather than have them repaired, I paid the difference, and took home a pair of QC 35.
I recently replaced my well-used and much-loved headphones, a set of Bose QC 15’s, with a new set. The old set was getting on a bit in age (I’ve had them for close to five years now), and were getting to a point where they were more or less worn out. Though they probably had another four or five months of heavy use in them, I wanted to replace them now, rather than having to scramble to replace them later. After looking at the offerings out there, I opted for their successor, Bose QC 25.
