How do they work?
These headphones offer three levels of noise cancellation so you can adjust for whatever you’re doing, whether it’s running, working or relaxing.
The headphones are also Alexa enabled, which reviewers seem to like. By pushing the “Action” button and say the word, you can easily access music and information. Plus, you can play music, listen to podcasts, hear the news, and much more, all without looking at your phone. The headphones also offer a pairing option to your phone via Bluetooth using the Bose Connect app to personalize settings and to access to future updates.
What are people saying?
These pretty in pink headphones have earned a solid 4.8-star rating is backed up by more than 1,600 ratings.
”So happy with this purchase. I work in an open office setting and some people are naturally loud which makes it difficult for me to concentrate on my work. I put these on, and wow, the amount of sound that it cancelled out,” says one reviewer. “Super happy with this purchase. Worth the expensive price tag for the amount of work I can get done now.”
“Just recently bought these for my girlfriend and she's crazy about these headphones!,” adds anothers. “The noise cancelling feature is a lifesaver if ever you just want to read in public with no music on.”
However, some shoppers say that for the price, there are some functional issues they’d like changed.
“Love the new headphones. Beautiful sound. Nice not to have wires. It connects to multiple devices so it's easy to go back and forth between phone, iPad, computer. It won't connect with Alexa unless the app is opened and that's slightly annoying. It also seems to affect my wifi connectivity on my phone,” cautions one reviewer. “But apart from those two things, I've been quite happy with these headphones. I bought them partially for the Bose AR API but I haven't tried it out yet.”
“Noise cancellation is good but doesn't block all high-frequency noises. It, however, does make a lot of noises disappear and makes studying awesome. The sound quality is not that bad but not that good also. I got these because the Sonys were said to be uncomfortable for long periods of wearing so that's why I got these ones,” explains another. “Due to sound and noise cancellation, Sony are much more preferable but because these are much more relaxing to put on, these are good. Solid for studying and plane and etc. I have used them for 2 days now and can say that they are extremely comfortable.”
If you’re looking for a pair of aesthetically pleasing over-the-ear headphones that are wireless and offer noise-cancelling capabilities, these Bose ones are a great option, especially on sale.
But in case you’re looking for styles that are less bulky or less expensive, they might not be the best option for you.
