Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

If the Sony WH-1000XM4s are the current king of noise-cancelling headphones, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are next in line for the throne. We think the Sonys sound slightly better, but the Bose noise cancelling is superior – so if you’re a frequent flyer these may well be the better option for you.

Over Ear

By applying noise cancellation to phone calls as well as music, Bose has made great strides in the field of noise-cancelling headphones. We found the sound quality to be undeniably good, with a vibrant, lively character and well-balanced soundstage.

Bluetooth Headphones

If you’re trying to decide between buying the Sony WH-1000XM4s and these Bose headphones, we’d recommend going for the former because of that lower price and better battery life – they’re our number one pick for those reasons. But you wouldn’t be making a mistake if you opted for the Bose cans instead (and we wouldn’t blame you if you did) – they sound great, look stunning, and the noise cancellation is out of this world.

Kids headphones

Safer Headphones for Kids

The Puro Sound Labs BT2200 set connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth-equipped source device and is easy to use thanks to a simple on/off switch and volume controls. With a long battery life of at least 20 hours, this pair offers a lot of listening time between charges.

The BT2200 is designed to provide a safer headset for children. Follows the World Health Organization’s recommended 85dB limit volume range, designed to protect young listeners’ eardrums from early hearing damage. But at the same time the BT2200 includes clear, crisp vocals and full dynamic bass—all within the safe 85 dB range. Built-in microphone, perfect for online learning.

The ear pads of the BT2200 are removable and replaceable. A new pair of ear pads is just $8. The BT2200 is equipped with on-ear ear cushions, which are generally suitable for smaller children and those who wear glasses. But for kids who prefer over-ear styles, the Puro has a unique design of replaceable ear pads, which can be purchased separately. Also, the foam in the pad is soft and doesn’t crunch, which can be important for kids who are allergic to these things.
