Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 review: fantastic noise cancellation and sound


The master of ANC is back on top

Smaller, more comfortable design ; Best-in-class noise cancellation ; Beautiful sound

Call quality could be better ; No support for high-def wireless codecs ; No wireless charging

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 have put the master of noise-cancellation tech back on top, taking the competition right to Sony. Not only has Bose managed to implement its redesign well, the company has improved on the noise cancellation of its...

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 review: noise-cancelling that's out of this world


Bose's QC Earbuds II bring next-level activate noise-cancelling (ANC) technology to your ears

Remarkable noise-cancellation ; Robust, informative and well-organised sound ; Good control options

limited codec compatibility ; ordinary battery life ; not short of competition

While the QuietComfort Earbuds 2 aren’t the best-sounding true wireless headphones you can buy, they’re still competitive. But that's not really the point: if you want absolutely, positively the most effective noise-cancellation of any true wireless...

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 review


Bose steps up its game with true wireless earbuds that rival Sony for ANC and sound quality but aren't quite as smart

Superb sound quality ; Astonishing noise cancellation ; Clever ‘Aware’ mode ; Secure fit

No Hi-Res audio support ; No Bluetooth Multipoint ; No wireless charging

Though they lack some features found on other earbuds of this price, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 make up for it with astounding noise cancellation and sound quality.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II review: nothing to apologise for


A stellar second-generation effort, the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II improve on the original in practically every way

Exemplary noise-cancellation ; Big, detailed and engaging sound ; Easier (and less mortifying) to wear than before

Bog-standard battery life ; Short of outright dynamism ; Any number of accomplished rivals

Bose is back, baby – and the QuietComfort Earbuds II are its best effort in quite a while

Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds II offer a whole new level of silence


Bose's QuietComfort Earbuds II aren't the smallest, best-sounding, or longest-lasting earbuds you can buy, but if it's quiet you seek, look no further.

Very comfortable Very good sound quality Outstanding noise cancellation Very good transparency Adjustable EQ modes

No wireless charging No Bluetooth multipoint Poor outdoor call quality

“Quiet and comfortable really are the best words to describe Bose's latest buds.”

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II hands-on: stunningly quiet


Bose gave us a quick taste of how well its new QuietComfort Earbuds II block unwanted sound, and it left us speechless.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2 Review: Best Noise Canceling, Bar None


Sony and Bose have been battling it out for noise-canceling supremacy the last few years. Bose has taken the lead once again with its $300 flagship earbuds.

Excellent sound and best-in-class noise canceling ; Significantly smaller than their predecessors ; New Fit Kit ear tips and stabilizer system gets you a secure, comfortable fit ; Improved voice calling with better noise reduction

Pricey ; No wireless charging ; No multipoint Bluetooth pairing ; AptX support not coming until spring 2023

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II Review


Engaging audio performance with deep lows and bright highs ; Fantastic low- and high-frequency noise cancellation ; Useful Active Aware mode ; Water-resistant build

No way to turn off noise cancellation altogether ; Case doesn't support wireless charging

The true wireless Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II set a new standard for in-ear active noise cancellation while delivering a powerful, bass-forward audio experience.

Expensive ; No Find My functionality

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II brings comfort, durability, great audio quality and unrivaled ANC, but with a few missing details
