Bose QuietComfort Earbuds review: The true wireless noise-canceling champ

The excellent ANC comes with a small sacrifice in portability, though.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds
  • Expert Rating

    4.50 / 5


  • Superb active noise cancelling
  • Extremely clean, neutral sound
  • Good touch controls


  • Huge charging case
  • Less battery life than advertised
  • Just one customizable touch point

Bottom Line

For noise cancelling, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds should be among the earbuds you look at. They silence noisy conditions well both at home and on the go, while also providing excellent audio for music playback and phone calls. Their primary weakness is size - both the earbuds and charging case are large, and the latter doesn't comfortably fit into pockets. But if you can live with that sacrifice, you'll enjoy these stellar buds.
