The patented active noise cancelling technology in Headphones 700 uses microphones both inside and outside the earcups to monitor the sounds around you and instantly produce an opposite signal to cancel them out, creating an empty stage for your music to play on. At the same time, our proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure uses external ports to vent the earcups and maximise the acoustic space inside, giving your music depth and detail.
A Refurbished product is one that’s been returned to Bose, for any reason. It’s then thoroughly inspected, tested and serviced to meet strict Bose sound quality standards—the same as a new product. Appearance is closely examined; products occasionally have minor, nearly imperceptible blemishes. All Refurbished products have the same warranty as new products. And are available only from Bose. Quantities are limited.
Critically acclaimed for their powerful noise cancelling, astonishing sound and unrivalled voice pickup, Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 help turn any space into the perfect place to listen to music, get work done or just shut out the world for a few moments and relax. So if you’re looking for the best wireless Bluetooth headphones for music and calls, you’ve found them.
Headphones 700 offer sound control that’s available only from Bose, including 11 settings that range from full noise cancelling (which helps isolate you from your surroundings) to full transparency (which helps let your surroundings in, as if you weren’t wearing headphones at all). Plus, one click triggers Conversation Mode, which simultaneously switches your headphones to full transparency and pauses your music, for a momentary break from private listening.
Headphones 700 feature a revolutionary microphone system that’s unlike any other headphones, with game-changing voice pickup engineered for making and taking calls in less-than-ideal conditions. Six mics work together to cancel the noise around you so you can hear the caller better, while four mics combine to improve the clarity of your voice so the caller can hear you better, first by isolating your speech and then by suppressing the most disruptive remaining sound around you. It all happens in real time and adapts as you—or the source of the noise—moves.
Even though we’ve been making noise cancelling headphones for decades, for Headphones 700 we began with a clean slate. The result? A head-turning new form factor, designed for all-day, everyday use. Earcups tilted at 15 degrees to mirror the anatomy of the human head and ears. Ear cushions made from plush protein leather for long listening sessions. A streamlined steel headband, tuned to clamp securely but not uncomfortably, and an underside of soft silicone-covered foam. And so much more.
We worked hard to make Headphones 700 easy to use. The right earcup features capacitive touch sensors, so you can manage volume, calls and music without looking at your phone. Low-profile buttons control the power, noise cancelling presets and voice assistant (VPA) access. Built-in voice control gets you to your music, messages and information fast. And the Bose Music app lets you access selectable EQ, manage your Bluetooth® connections, change your VPA, check your battery life and more.
Nothing should come between you and your music. Instantly start listening to your last session on Spotify simply by tapping and holding the right earcup. Want new content? Just tap and hold it again for a brand-new playlist based on your listening history. You can keep repeating this step until you find something you like. Open the latest Bose Music app to enable the Spotify shortcut. Currently only available when using iOS devices with your headphones and an active Spotify account.*
Want to watch TV but not disturb anyone else? With Bose SimpleSync™ technology, you can pair your Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 with a Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 for a personal TV listening experience. Independent volume controls allow you to lower or mute your soundbar while keeping your headphones as loud as you like.
What is the difference between Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 and QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?
Both QuietComfort 35 headphones II and Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are wireless Bluetooth headphones. For music, both are engineered with proprietary active equalisation, so they avoid boosted bass, vocals and treble that create listener fatigue over time, opting instead for faithful reproduction that’s clear, natural and balanced. Both headphones also feature controllable noise cancelling; however, while QuietComfort 35 offers two settings, Headphones 700 offers 11—including a full-transparency experience that gives the term “off” an entirely new meaning. While the highest setting delivers the most powerful silence, the lowest lets your surroundings pass through the earcups fully—so with the flick of a switch, you hear yourself, others and everything else like you aren’t wearing a headset at all. Conversation Mode lets you gain the same awareness while enjoying content—so you can pause entertainment and noise cancelling simultaneously, chat face to face or listen for announcements, and resume where you left off when you’re done.
What is TriPort acoustic headphone structure?
Proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure utilises external ports to vent the earcups and effectively enlarge the acoustic volume, without increasing the size of the earcup. The result is better audio and active noise reduction from smaller, lighter, more comfortable headphones. TriPort acoustic headphone structure is used in all of our consumer headphones and headsets.
How is the total noise cancellation in Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 achieved?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 utilise both active and passive noise reduction technologies. They use a sophisticated proprietary electronics approach to active noise reduction, placing microphones both inside and outside the earcups. The electronics system senses the sound in almost any environment and then measures, compares and reacts—instant by instant—to produce an opposing cancellation signal. The passive noise reduction is achieved by the combination of the acoustic design and materials chosen for the earcups and cushions.
How many microphones do the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have?
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are comprised of a new, eight-microphone system. Six microphones are used as part of the noise cancelling technology to manage how much or how little of your surroundings you hear. And two of those microphones combine with two others to deliver unrivalled voice pickup performance.
Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 take calls?
Yes. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have an adaptive four-microphone system that allows you to use the headphones during calls when connected to any smartphone. In addition to traditional calls, the headphones will work with many apps that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), such as Skype or FaceTime.
How do I pair Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 with my mobile device?
First, make sure your headphones are turned on with a single press of the upper button on the back of the right earcup. Next, press and hold the power button for three seconds to put the headphones into pairing mode. Please note, if this is your first time connecting the headphones, they will automatically turn on in this pairing mode. Voice prompts will provide you with additional guidance. We recommend that you use the Bose Music app to complete the pairing process. However, you can also use the Bluetooth® settings on your device.
Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 be simultaneously connected to two mobile devices?
Yes. Multi-point technology allows Bose Headphones 700 to maintain a connection to two devices at the same time—for example, an iPad and a smartphone. So while you’re watching a video on the connected iPad, the headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call from the connected smartphone. When the call is finished, the headphones will swap back to the video on the iPad.
What is the range of Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have a range of up to 10 metres (33 ft) from the source device. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room that the user is in and the adjacent room. This range may be reduced by physical obstructions, such as walls and doors, or by interference from other electronic devices. Pops or a crackling noise may be heard if there’s interference with the Bluetooth® connection. If that happens, move away from wireless routers or microwaves and bring your headphones closer to the Bluetooth device.
How long will the battery stay charged?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 use a custom-designed lithium-ion rechargeable battery that provides up to 20 hours of full-featured audio playback.
How do I control volume or manage my content with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700?
The front half of the right earcup houses our touch interface for basic controls. This includes intuitive gestures like slide up and down for volume control and slide forward and back for track forward/back controls. In addition, a double tap will pause or play your content and also answer or hang up a call.
How do I fold the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 for storage?
The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 utilise a hidden pivot design to quickly fold flat with one twist of the earcups, and can be stored neatly in a thin tapered hard case. Inside the case, there is a dedicated cable management compartment with a magnetic cover. While the new design improves ease of use and utility, the thin wedge shape also facilitates storage in tight locations, including seat pockets, backpacks and bags.
What’s Spotify® One Touch?
