Bose QuietComfort 45 Review: Sound of silence | Trusted Reviews

 

The Bose QuietComfort 45 feature excellent noise cancellation but are surprisingly short of features for their premium price

Excellent noise cancellation ; Good comfort ; Improved battery life

Rather sparse for features ; Lacks musicality of rivals

Bose’s latest effort in the QuietComfort series offers excellent noise cancellation, good audio, and an updated design. In that respect, they’re as good as they’ve ever been. If you’re in need of smarts and customisable features though, the QC 45 are...

Bose QuietComfort 45 review: the king of wireless headphones is back

 

The Bose QuietComfort 45 are some of the best noise-cancelling headphones you can buy right now

Impressive noise-cancelling ; 24 hours of battery life ; Sound you can listen to for hours ; Lightweight and comfortable

Can’t turn off noise-cancelling entirely ; No manual EQ settings ; No aptX codec support

Keeping things simple and comfortable, the Bose QuietComfort 45 are excellent noise-cancelling headphones that will keep you fully immersed in your favourite songs. There aren’t loads of extra features to speak of and the sound won't blow your mind but...

Bose QuietComfort 45 review: Top travel headphones

 

The de facto noise-cancelling travel headphones are back for 2021, with tweaks including improved battery life, a USB-C port, and enhanced ANC.

Super sound quality with thumping bass ; Always-on active noise-cancelling (ANC) - the noise reduction is stupendous ; Foldable design and case included - ideal for travel

Forget to switch them off and the battery will drain - really needs an auto-off option ; Bose 700 NC look and feel and sound better ; Control button too close to volume up/down

Great comfort, super sound, spectacular active noise-cancelling. These are ideal travel headphones. The only thingnot to love is the competition - which has grown stronger over the years, including from Bose itself.

Bose QuietComfort 45 review: Still the kings of comfort but lacking innovation

 

The Bose QuietComfort 45 deliver on their promise of quiet and comfort but are light on smart features and audio customisation

Class-leading comfort ; Highly effective noise cancellation ; Aware mode works well

ANC can’t be adjusted ; No EQ options

I have to admit that I’m a bit disappointed with the Bose QuietComfort 45. Not because they’re bad headphones, they’re most certainly not, but because I’d hoped for so much more.

Bose QuietComfort 45 review

 

Silence still golden?

ANC still fantastic ; Very durable design ; Good all-round sound ; Great battery life

Similarly priced alternatives offer more features for the money ; Can’t turn noise-cancelling off without activating Aware Mode

Lacking a few features we’ve come to think of as standard, but Bose are still right up there when it comes to no-nonsense noise-cancelling

Bose QuietComfort 45 review: More (and less) of a very good thing

 

Bose has updated its QuietComfort headphones with a bigger battery and Bluetooth 5.1, but are the QC 45's higher price and fewer features a deal-breaker?

“Bose's most popular headphones get a bigger battery, but drop some features.”

Bose QuietComfort 45 Review

 

Best-in-class noise cancellation ; Sculpted audio with rich bass and crisp highs ; Exceptionally comfortable

ANC can’t be adjusted ; No EQ ; Sound signature isn't accurate for true audiophiles

Though the competition is stiffer than ever, the Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones continue to lead the industry with the best active noise cancellation you can buy.

Bose QuietComfort 45/QC45 Wireless Review

 

The Bose QuietComfort 45/QC45 Wireless are the next generation of the Bose QuietComfort 35 II/QC35 II Wireless 2018. They have a very similar look and feel to th...

Good build quality. Over 21 hours of continuous playback time. Very good recording quality. Excellent noise isolation performance. Very comfortable.

Mic struggles to separate your voice from moderate ambient noise. No EQ. Bulky and can fall off your head with more intense movement.

The Bose QuietComfort 45 are good for neutral sound. They have a very neutral sound profile with a touch of extra thump, rumble, and boom in the bass that doesn't overwhelm vocals or lead instruments. However, the passive soundstage seems closed-off...

Bose QuietComfort 45 Review – It's been a few years since we had the popular QuietComfort 35/35 II Active Noise Cancelling from Bose. With the release of Bose Headphones 700, I thought it was the end of the QuietComfort series – but apparently I was...

No auto-pause/auto-resume ; No EQ and Noise Cancelling customisations ; No airplane adapter included ; No aptX

Bose’s upgraded QuietComfort Series comes with superior audio noise cancellation and perfected design
