Bose Quietcomfort 3

 

Very effective noise-cancelling, thanks to generous padding and technology talents. But they are just too smooth to offer true realism. Pricey, too.

It's Oh So Quiet - Bose Quiet Comfort 3 Review

 

Travelling from the city of Sin to the airport of Essex, the Lordpercy team test Bose's new set of noise cancelling headphones. Can they deaden the roar of the engines and chatter of cabin crew while providing quality audio reproduction?

QuietComfort 3

 

If you're after a professional headset solution that also cancels out external noise, look no further than this Bose set.

Comfortable, effective, good sound, no need to for an extra device containing power and noise-cancelling technology

Bass can impact some music, proprietary batteries mean you must keep them charged, quite noticeable

These are battery powered, using specially designed rechargeable cells that slip into the right-hand earpiece. You can expect 20 hours of playback on one charge. Popping into a shop for emergency replacements isn't an option but the system ships with...

Bose QuietComfort 3 review

 

Silence is golden. Perhaps not in the Victorian sense, but in the 'can't hear a thing for miles' sense it's bliss. It's why we pay good money to travel abroad, move to the country and sleep away from our snoring partner - if they suffer from the noisy...

Noise-cancellation is incredible, Comfortable, Numerous handy extras

The price, Can take a little getting used to

If you are sick of that noisy flight or train journey and want a good bassy sound, the Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones are worth all those pennies

Excellent noise cancelling, rechargeable

Can't listen without batteries, expensive

The QuietComfort 3 headphones offer exceptional noise cancelling, and while they may not provide the best sound quality on the market, they are extremely appealing for frequent travelers.

Bose QuietComfort 3

 

The Bose QuietComfort 3 noise-canceling headphones are smaller—but not necessarily better—than their predecessor.

Very good noise canceling. Small form factor. 20-hour rechargeable battery. Good sound quality. Very comfortable.

Doesn't work unless switched on and battery has power. Ear pads will make your ears sweat. Case is nearly as bulky as that of the QC2. Expensive.

these headphones are very comfortable, but personally i prefer circumaural designs (which go around your ear instead of on top of them). the pads did get a little moist after about an hour of continuous use, but i didn't really feel that i needed a...

Bose QuietComfort headphone review

 

Bose QuietComfort 3 Whether or not you think they're overpriced, Bose's luxuriously designed QuietComfort models have set the standard for premium noise-canceling headphones . As their model number indicates, the $349 QuietComfort 3s are the third...

Bose's QuietComfort 3 headphones are a smaller and more compact follow-up to the QuietComfort 2s. They offer a more compact design, extracomfortable cushy foam earpieces, a rechargeable battery, full sound, and effective noise-canceling circuitry, and...

The Bose QuietComfort 3s are even more expensive than their predecessors. And when the battery dies, so does the music.

With the QuietComfort 3s, Bose has done a remarkable job of shrinking its popular noise-canceling headphones while achieving similarly impressive sound quality--but that engineering feat doesn't come cheap.
