The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are the long-awaited successor to its QuietComfort 35 II models. The headphone is $400 (£350 or about AU$570), which is $50 more than the QC35 II and the Sony WH-1000XM3, CNET's current top-rated noise-canceling headphone. Bose is touting the headphone's voice communication features.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Bose 700 take a different approach to design, most notable in the way the earcups are affixed to the headband. Only three physical buttons will be found; one button on the left adjusts noise canceling intensity at levels 0, 5, and 10. The Bose Music app allows users to pair the headphones to their phone (which can be done just as easily without the app)

Pros[**]

  • Excellent battery life
  • New Bose Music app
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
Bose uses a total of eight microphones on the outer sides of the ear cups to pick up ambient noise and generate counter-rotating waves. It gets exciting when you want to make phone calls with the Bose Headphones 700 as well, because here too the outside microphones, two of the eight, are used for noise suppression. The headphones can block the outside noise thanks to the combination of a closed system and very effective noise suppression, but can they entertain me as well?

Pros[**]
  • Good sound quality
  • Good battery life
  • Active noise canceling works well
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are the first model from the company to exist outside of the QuietComfort/QuietControl lineup. They offer a more streamlined, modern look, built-in support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, and an improved mic system for clearer communication on calls. The ANC has little to no impact on how the headphones sound, which often isn't the case.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, minimalist design
  • Excellent noise cancellation
  • Alexa and Google Assistant support
Cons[**]
  • ANC has little to no impact on how the headphones sound

Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are available right now from Bose, Amazon, John Lewis, and most of the usual other retailers. Bose has packed in eight separate microphones (four on each cup), and six of them are designed to listen to the outside world so that the speakers can drown it out by playing cancelling frequencies. No noise cancelling is perfect (yet) and you will still hear something through the effect, even on its highest setting.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent noise cancellation for your own voice
  • Great for calls and voice calls
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

techradar[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are available to buy in the US for $399 / £349.95. That price makes the new over-ear headphones around $50 / £20 / AU$99 more expensive than their predecessors, the highly-rated Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones. They're also pricier than the our current favorite noise-cancelling headphones, the Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Headphones.

Pros[**]
  • Slim, lightweight design
  • Sleek, comfortable fit
  • Comfortable earcups
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Bose NC Headphones 700 have a look that's sleek and minimalist. The headband can be adjusted for best fit, although the way in which the headband has been integrated with the ear cups means that the headphones can't be folded inwards when not in use. The ANC button on the earcup, the strength of the noise cancelling can be tweaked so while there's no ‘Transparency Mode' as such, dialling down the ANC serves the same purpose except there's more room to play with in terms of letting sound through.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, comfortable design
  • Excellent noise cancellation
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
Noise Cancelling 700s are the latest in a 19-year long line of Bose QuietComfort noise-cancellers that for much of that time have set the benchmark in the category. Features an eight-microphone system (six to cancel noise, two for voice pick-up) and 11 increments (from 0-10) to choose from. The 700s use a ‘beamform-array' of mics that work to isolate speech and suppress everything else.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive noise-cancelling
  • Excellent battery life
  • Excellent sound isolation
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
