Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Are Bose headphones worth it, or are they just hype?

I purchased 4 different major brand noise canceling headphones to try out at my office (it is really loud in my workplace). Bose, by far, had the best noice cancelation, but the worse overall flat sound quality. I purchased the Bose anyway because the NC was what I needed most. So, I’d say if you don’t need NC then I’d avoid them.

Re: Are Bose headphones worth it, or are they just hype?

I too am comparing multiple top-end earbuds.  But I’ve found the sound to be the best from Bose with the deepest base (like a subwoofer), excellent soundstage, and live performance-like presence. I suggest ensuring you have a good seal with the right sized tips, otherwise it will sound flat.

I’m thinking about selling my qc comfort earbuds. I’ve been using the new jabra 85t earbuds and wow. They sound amazing.
