Bose has always been well-known for their noise cancelling headphones around the world. Their Acoustic Noise Cancelling (ANC) was engineered back in 1989 for the aviation industry. The theory behind Bose’s ANC is simple: Measure and analyse the external noise and cancels out using polar opposite signal. As a Dad who loves the world of electronics, I appreciates how Bose uses the principles of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to engineer these amazing audio devices.
Released in 2015, the Bose QuietComfort 25 is an improved version of the QuietComfort 15. The key improvements are faster and more accurate noise cancellation, better audio quality and greater comfort. The over-the-ear headphones is now foldable.
What’s In The Box For Bose QuietComfort 25
Pack in the box, Bose offers a carry case, an airline adapter, a 1.5 meters long audio cable with inline remote and microphone. Since this is a noise cancelling headphones, an AAA battery is also packed into the box to power up the electronics.
On A Closer Look, Feel And Experience
Opening up the carry case, the QuietComfort 25 is folded nicely inside. Don’t be deceived by it’s bulky appearance. This over-the-ear headphones is lightweight and the materials has a premium touch. The cushioning for the earcups are soft and the suede-like material feels luxurious.
At the left earcup, beneath lies the 3.5mm audio jack, while the switch for the noise cancelling and AAA battery compartment are located at the right earcup. The inline microphone and remote offers compatibility for many Apple and Android devices.
Putting on the Bose QuietComfort 25 feels very comfortable. This is due to it’s lightweight and soft cushioning around the ears. When the ANC mode is switched off, the audio quality sounds flat and I could hear some external noises such as the phone ringing and sounds from my television. When the ANC mode is switched on, the background “hissing” sound is gone. The audio quality played through my iPod sounds very wide with good clarity and strong bass tones. Unlike many in-ear earphones, the QuietComfort 25 headphones creates a stress free music enjoyment.Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones eliminates external noise pretty well. Click To Tweet
In my personal opinion, the Bose QuietComfort 25 is ergonomically comfortable. The built of this over-the-ear headphones feel great and the folding of the earcups is easy. This headphone would be much better if it has a built-in rechargeable battery. When the AAA battery runs low, the noise cancelling will be disabled.
If you are looking for a headphone which offers noise cancellation, I would recommend the Bose QuietComfort 25 as it does the job perfectly well. If noise cancellation is not your concern, then probably you can look for other audio brands which has a cheaper price tag.
