A super-comfortable set that makes it easy to cut the cord

 

Gadgets of all kinds are ditching their cords, and headphones are no exception. With the rise of quality wireless headphones, the desire to untether has become stronger than ever. 

Bose’s QuietComfort 35 noise-cancelling headphones hold their own in an expanding field of competitors. They’re even being called the best noise-cancelling wireless headphones on the market. PCMag says they’re “a shoo-in for our Editor’s Choice award.”

Here are 6 key features of the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones:

1. All-around performance: It can be tough to find wireless headphones that deliver quality sound and solid functionality. Just about every review of the QuietComfort 35s, however, praises them for marrying both.

“If you're looking for top-of-the-line sound and wireless functionality, you can't do much better than this,” says Headphones.reviewed.com. And according to The Verge, they’re “the best-sounding headphones that the company has produced yet.”

 

2. Noise cancellation: Headphone sound quality can be impacted by ambient noise, but the Bose QuiteComfort 35s shrug off the outside world. “In the realm of noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones, you simply can’t do better than this,” PC Mag writes. The Verge put a finer point on it: “It’s like you hit the mute button on everything (and everyone) around you.”

3. Amazing midrange: Historically, wireless headphones haven't received much love for their sonics. But the QuietComfort 35s are changing users’ perceptions of what wireless headphones can be. Audiophileon.com was especially pleased, noting that “midrange is the strong point with vocals, guitars, and the like sounding clear-spaced and with admirable accuracy for a headphone that incorporates noise-canceling technology.” Tech Radar says the "sound is lovely and crisp, and there’s none of the flatness that you can get with wireless headphones.”

4. Wireless Bluetooth connection: The Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones can pair 2 devices simultaneously, and allows users to take calls with sound streaming directly from their phone. When it comes to the quality of the connection, The Verge called the wireless connection “largely reliable … with only a couple split-second dropouts in midtown Manhattan. But 99% of the time, it worked without issue.”

5. Cushy comfort: The QuietComfort 35s have been touted as some of the most comfortable wireless headphones available. Headphones.reviewed.com says they can “sit on your head without any strain whatsoever … this level of comfort should be a given with all premium headphones.”

Audiophileon.com also took them for a spin, highlighting another strength beyond their noise-cancelling abilities. “The second best thing about the Bose QC35 is the comfort,” the site writes. “You can wear these for hours on end.”

While the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones are more expensive than some competitors, reviewers think they're worth the investment. “If you can deal with the price, the QC35s just might be the perfect everyday headphones,” writes The Verge. PCmag agreed: “Is it worth it? In a word: Yes.”
