Bose QuietComfort 25

 

Bose's QuietComfort 25 over-ear headphones feature excellent noise cancellation and a sculpted, powerful audio performance.

Powerful lows and crisp, bright highs with no distortion at top volumes. Exceedingly comfortable. Best noise-cancellation technology available. Can be used as passive headphones without power.

Runs on a AAA battery rather than a built-in, rechargeable option. Sculpted sound signature is not for purists. No auto-off function.

At $300, the Bose QuietComfort 25 is still a noise-canceling headphone pair first and a music lover's headphone pair second. But Bose introduces new improvements (like passive listening mode) with every model that keep QuietComfort on top of the noise...

Bose QuietComfort 25 review: The best noise-canceling headphones get better

 

The creator of the first industry-standard noise-canceling headphones returns with an updated model.

Extra-comfortable design; clearer, more dynamic sound; highly effective noise-canceling circuitry that's been slightly improved; new folding design allows the headphones to fit in a smaller carrying case; if the battery dies, the music now doesn't die;...

Fairly pricey.

The QuietComfort 25 model takes Bose's already stellar noise-canceling headphones and levels them up to new heights.

Bose QuietComfort 25 Black

 

While the two models bear a strong familial resemblance, Bose says the QC25 headphones -- which cost $300 in the US, £270 in the UK, and AU$400 in Australia -- are totally redesigned, with better audio performance and noise reduction, plus an improved...

The Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones

 

After testing 42 headphones, we think the Bose QuietComfort 25 are the best pick for most people who want over-ear noise-cancelling headphones.

In terms of noise cancellation, nothing beats the Bose QuietComfort 25 . This pair is also comfortable, as portable as you can get with over-ear headphones, and decent-sounding. It’s a fantastic product for any traveler (or any lover of a bit of...

Bose QuietComfort 25 Review

 

The Bose QuietComfort 25 noise-cancellation headphones might not be the most powerful, but they really are the most comfortable. These had no complaints from any of our test team members about the size and fit of the headphones, and their...

These were the most comfortable headphones (they only weigh 6.9 ounces), so they’re perfect for all day use.

The battery life on these headphones isn't very long. You'll want to throw in an extra AAA battery when you pack for a trip.

If you listen to music at work or when you're studying, the Bose QuietComfort 25 are the most comfortable headphones of the noise-cancelling variety.

Review: Bose QuietComfort 25 noise-cancelling headphones

 

When it comes to trusted audio equipment names, few match the reputation of industry stalwart Bose. Since the company first dipped its toes into the tranquil waters of noise-cancelling gear in 2000, it's over-ear QuietComfort headphone line has evolved...

When slipping them on and pressing play for the first time it is hard to describe the noise-cancelling as anything other than excellent. Even without music on, we found the QuietComfort 25's to be able to dull voices, outside traffic, air conditioners...

Bose QuietComfort 25 Headphone Review

 

"The QC25 widens Bose's significant lead in noise-canceling technology, though it trails some other competitive 'phones on sound quality."

The best noise-canceler, period!; Headphones can play after batteries are drained; Light and very comfortable

Sound quality isn’t stellar

Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones - Review

 

Bose has long been classed as a company producing well made, but very expensive headphones. The QuietComfort 25 headphones are no exception, but do the sound and features really match the price?

Bose QuietComfort 25 - A new standard in noise-cancelling headphones

 

It's been five years since the Bose QuietComfort 15 was released, so to say the QuietComfort 25 is a highly anticipated set of headphones would be a bit of an understatement. Has Bose somehow managed to improve on the already stellar noise-cancelling...

Excellent noise-cancelling ; Folds down into a compact package for travel ; Comfortable for extended periods of wear

Sound quality is good but doesn't quite match up to the price tag

All in, this a set of headphones you’ll go for if you want the best noise-cancelling experience available. Which is important if you’re going to be on a crowded bus or stuck on a long flight where you really just want to plug in and zone out. The fit...
