It has been some time since the American firm Bose taught the world the second version of its successful wireless headphones with noise cancellation Bose QuietComfort 35 II. And it is now that a new model is finally called to take its place: The Bose 700. Apart from doing everything that is expected of them in principle, they also do things that you would never have imagined were possible. And these “smart headphones” allow us to easily access voice assistants, while answering calls thanks to a powerful and innovative microphone equipment. And if that was not enough, it includes the Bose AR augmented reality platform, which brings new and incredible experiences.
Bose 700, renovated and elegant design
It should be noted that these Bose headphones renew their design compared to previous versions, to provide a cleaner and more elegant aesthetic, in line with market trends. This model, which is available in black and silver, weighs only 25 grams, a fact to consider when we talk about an accessory designed to accompany us everywhere with our mobile phone. The headband, which is made of stainless steel and adjustable, has a super soft foam inside to make you as comfortable as possible.

Keep them in your carrying case
The headphones of these Bose 700 can be easily turned inwards (staying flat), to store them in the carrying case that accompanies them. On the other hand, the Bose Headphones 700 are equipped with comfortable helmets placed at an angle, and bring pads made from synthetic proteins, which are very soft and resistant. So you can use them throughout the day.
Touch buttons and controls
As for the buttons, there are two buttons on the right earpiece (Bluetooth and access to Virtual Voice Assistants) and one on the left for noise cancellation (adjustable). Likewise, a touch panel has been added to the front of the right handset, with multimedia and volume playback functions. It also serves to answer or end a call.
Ports and wireless connectivity
We are glad that the manufacturer has decided to incorporate a USB Type-C port for charging in these headphones. It also has a 2.5 mm jack for use with an audio cable when the battery of these headphones is discharged. Although the ideal is to use them wirelessly with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
11-level noise cancellation system
The Bose Headphones 700 feature a noise cancellation system with up to 11 predefined levels.
It should be noted that the brand has placed a lot of emphasis on improving the noise cancellation system in these Bose 700, which is now possible to customize with up to 11 predefined levels. Obviously, the more you increase the capacity of the ANC (Active Noise Control), the more you avoid the annoying ambient noise. On the contrary, if you reduce it, there will come a time that it will appear that you are not wearing helmets with noise cancellation.
Powerful microphone system in voice pickup
Another of the points to highlight in these Bose Headphones 700 headphones, is its adaptive microphone system to achieve superior voice pickup. To be more specific, it includes a pack of eight microphones: 6 microphones are used as part of the noise cancellation technology, and two of those microphones work together with another 2, which deliver unmatched performance at the time of capturing the voice.
And how is the sound quality? If we stick to what Bose tells us, it’s better than ever. They ensure that we will have a surround listening experience regardless of volume. To do this, it mixes an active equalization mechanism, with a satisfactory bass response. The Bose Music application is what will allow us to configure and control the headphones from any mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. With this app, apart from configuring sound management, you can choose the language for voice prompts or adjust the level of noise cancellation, among many other possibilities.
Compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant
These Bose 700 helmets are compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can use them with any mobile using your own voice. To activate the voice assistant, just press a button located on the right handset.
Autonomy of the Bose Headphones 700
The autonomy will be approximately 20 hours of use. To make a full charge you will have to wait about two and a half hours. If you’re in a hurry, keep in mind that with a 15-minute charge, the helmets will accumulate energy to use them for 3.5 hours.
Bose AR augmented reality platform
One of the strengths of these helmets is the implementation of a pioneering augmented reality audio platform, which has been named Bose AR.
The “icing on the cake” is the implementation of a pioneering augmented reality audio platform, which has been named Bose AR. Its main contribution is that it offers the opportunity to experience new ways of traveling, playing sports, playing and much more. For this, it has several motion sensors, which when we wear them detect the orientation of the head, as well as the movement of the body. This information is used to send you audio content that will depend on where you are and what you are doing.
If you are looking for a wireless and portable home speaker, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and voice control, one of the best is the Bose Portable Home Speaker.
