The Bose QuietComfort25 are exactly what you expect from Bose’s top of the line Noise Canceling headphones.
With their comfortable mesh padding as well as their hard plastic adjustable straps, they take over your ear as well as help you feel a deep, immersive and comfortable sound. The top of the headband comes with a soft, light linen or denim construct. The Bose QC 25’s great sleek design comes in 2 different colors (black and a dark blue as well as a white and tan) and looks immensely better than the clunky but well praised predecessor, the Bose QuietComfort 15. These premium, yet light, headphones ( 195 grams) not only look sleeker and sexier, they are also targeted to everyone and not just the average business person.
Included in package
The QC25’s come with a hard shell case and a travel adapter for airplanes. Also included in the package was a AAA battery which is convenient and should last you around 35 hours of playtime. Bose did provide a cable that comes with a pause and play, as well as volume buttons. The headphones come in two different versions; one for Apple devices and the other for Android, although I did use the Apple version of them on a One Plus One and was able to play, pause, and skip tracks but not adjust the volume.
Pros & Cons
The Bose QuietComfort25’s are immensely comfortable and do not cause any fatigue or headaches after long period of listening. The audio quality dominates the game and sound amazing in any genre of music ranging from Hip-Hop to plain acoustics. The noise cancellation works great as I used the headphones in a rowdy high school hall as well as a cafeteria and I could hear nothing around me. My only gripe with the headphones would be that they do leak significantly when used at a high volume. However, it will definitely not be noticeable in a public and loud place. The Bose QuietComfort 25’s not only improve significantly from their predecessors in design but also in durability, structure and basic mechanics (folding).
They come with a hefty price tag at a whopping $299.99 ($399.99 if you customize them on their website) but for any audiophile and avid music listener these are not just a purchase, but an investment. I would recommend them to any friend or family member.
