Review Of Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds

Initially, the Bose’s built their SoundSport wireless Earbuds properly and it produced quality and good sounds, until it started having connectivity issues.

The audio and video also had troubles syncing and the company didn’t get to solve all these issues. These Earbuds didn’t have any noise cancelation feature which was one of the things Bose was mainly known for.

Due to all these issues, the company lost some of its customers to other brands like  Apple and Sony. Apple brands developed their Airpods Pro which attracted people while Sony designed WF-1000XM3 Earbuds.

However, the Bose Company is now fed up with its competitors overtaking them in the market, the brand is back with the QuietComfort Earbuds.

They completely designed the QuietComfort Earbuds from scratch hence preventing all the troubles that were seen in the SoundSport Free war Earbuds. Currently they’ve  been updated with ANC that prevents the user from hearing unwanted noise or sound.

However, this particular earbud has the best noise cancelation feature when it comes to present wireless Earbuds available in the market.

What do they look like?

The QuietComfort Earbuds are minimalistic in the natural but they have all the modern features you might want in an Earbud even though they are quite bulky.

It has a sleekly design just like the Bose Noise Canceling headphones with a curved shape. You have the option of selecting between two colors, that is white or black color. This Earbuds are trimmed down perfectly to fit Bose’s earbud nature.

It comes with a large charging pack that also has a black or white color which matches your headset color. There’s LED light on the charging case that indicates how much battery you have left.

It also has a button that allows manual pairing when activated. You need to clean the case frequently since it gets stained with oil very easily.

The type of Bluetooth codecs they support

Just like its predecessors, the QuietComfort Earbuds depend on Bluetooth 5.1. They function effectively while they are in the appropriate range.

You won’t have any issues with connectivity whether you are indoor or outdoor, provided you are within 9 meters from your connected device.

The QuietComfort isn’t left out of the Bose support for two important Bluetooth codecs which are the SBC and AAC. The AAC codec is excellent for Apple users since it can pair effectively with the IOS software.

But it’s not the same when compared to Android because it is more reliable with Android. If eventually you don’t get good streaming quality, you can change to the SBC via your Android developer options.

How long does the battery last?

While testing the QuietComfort Earbuds, we allowed the device to stay on a 75dB output till it had no batteries left. It lasted for about 5 hours and twenty nine minutes even though we enabled the ANC.

This is excellent for a wireless Earbuds with ANC enabled. It lasts more longer than some of its competitors like the Airpods Pro and so on.

Also, the QuietComfort Earbuds allows fast charging features and hence the device charges enough to play for 2 hours within 15 minutes. If the battery is dead, charging would take about 2 hours to get the device full.

The Earbud’s case takes about 3 hours to charge through its USB port. You can also charge the device with a wireless mat according to the speed of the pad.

How do they sound like?

The sound produced by this device is pretty good, although you won’t get much points while testing the frequency with audiophiles. The Bass also sounds pretty good with twice the number of a low midrange.

This feature helps to hide the sounds while playing songs with too much bass. Even though this might probably not be suitable for audiophiles, but most customers will be satisfied with the amount of bass produced by this Earbuds.

Just like all headsets in the market, you get a different sound quality according to how much it fits. Fortunately, each pair of Earbuds from Bose has 3 ear tip which would perfectly fit some of their customers ears. You have to consider the size that would cancel noise effectively as well as reproduce sufficient bass while playing music.

Does the noise canceling feature work effectively?

As an individual that likes traveling, the QuietComfort ANC feature would be a great experience for you. It functions effectively and cancels sounds from an airplane or engine.

While testing for the noise cancelation feature, I was happy with the way it eliminated the sounds coming from my stationary bike. Usually, my stationary bike makes lots of noise when I’m riding out of my apartment. But I didn’t hear any of the noise when I activated the ANC feature.

You have the option to choose noise cancelation from levels 1-10. This particular scale takes care of transparency.

That means the lower the ANC, the higher sound you get. While it might take time adjusting to the sound, the settings of the Ambient noise is quite good unlike some of its competitors in the market. I like the transparency settings seen on this device to those seen on the Sony WF-1000XM3.

However, while the ANC does a good job canceling unwanted noise, it wouldn’t cancel sounds like door slammed shut or the sound of a plate dropped on the floor. The tighter the ear tips, the more sound it eliminates.


The QuietComfort Earbuds are perfect for anyone so far as you have enough money for it. There won’t be any need for additional Earbuds while going to your office, gym etc.

While most people would love its flat and sleek nature, many people won’t fancy the bulky earbud case. It has a large charging case unlike most of the wireless Earbuds, it is important to consider that if you do not have enough space in your pockets.

Despite the fact that the price is a bit expensive, you can wait till the company starts their promo before you purchase it.
