      True pure sound wirelesss

      10/10, simple, easy to manage and powerful sound, deep bass but clear at the same time. Ligth, elegant and confortable in ear headphones. I have both QC 30 an 10/10, simple, easy to manage and powerful sound, deep bass but clear at the same time. Ligth, elegant and confortable in ear headphones. I have both QC 30 and QC 35, both are spectacular, with minimal diferences in noise cancelling. Are Expensive but secure. The BT pairing is fast and the connection solid.

The only thing what i co This is by far my best investment! The noise cancelling is so amazing that i wondered if the place was quiet while i was in Starbucks! The only thing what i could hear is the music all the time until i unplug from my ears. One thing to comment is the bluetooth. It is definitely not often, but i do get glitches once a while. I am not sure if it is disconnecting for less than a half second or due to the interference caused by other bluetooth devices such as apple pencil or apple watch. However, i am so pleased that i bought this product. I just forget it is sitting on my neck often. So lightweighted and comfortable to keep on my neck.

      Fantastic!!

      One of the best noise cancellation bluetooth devices available. Easy to carry and use while travelling. No issues with the neck band, actually feel it is good g One of the best noise cancellation bluetooth devices available. Easy to carry and use while travelling. No issues with the neck band, actually feel it is good given it will not fall or something. Charging socket could have been at a better place. Bose should introduce the multiple bluetooth connectivity and switch from devices to devices easily. One of the best products from Bose!! Good investment

      Broke Within 1 Year

      I absolutely loved these headphones! The sound quality was amazing, they had great battery life and were incredibly portable. But within 9 months of buying them I absolutely loved these headphones! The sound quality was amazing, they had great battery life and were incredibly portable. But within 9 months of buying them, they all of a sudden broke. I'm attempting to work with Bose to fix them but their customer support typically takes 7+ days to respond to emails.

      If you go to the Apple Store they are going to tell you to buy the Beats Wireless or the Apple AirPods. Of course they would! They make the product. And sinc If you go to the Apple Store they are going to tell you to buy the Beats Wireless or the Apple AirPods. Of course they would! They make the product. And since I am also a fan of Apple products, I bought the Beats 12hour wireless headphones (I always shoot for the best available. Buy right, buy once.). That's when the drama began. I was impressed with the W-1 chip's performance and aiding with a quick Bluetooth connection to both my iPhone and iPad Pro. However, the headphones were very uncomfortabler to wear. I even tried changing the ear buds but that didn't help. So I just kept wearing them because it was more convenient than using my Bose wired headsets. But, in the back of my mind I kept wondering if the Bose might be better eventhough some reviewers had negative remarks. So, after using the Beats for a little more than 2 weeks, I purchased the Bose Quietcontrol 30's. Admittedly, I have only used them for about an hour. But, the look, feel and initial operation of these headphones far exceed my experience with Beats. Note the following: Comfort: If you have ever worn Bose earbuds, you know how comfortable they are. There are no earbuds that that feel better. These buds and soft and cushiony (if there is such a word). Setup/Bluetooth Connection: It was instantaneous! The headphones themselves talk you through the setup procedure! The Beats were easy too. However, I noticed that I sometimes have difficulty getting them to reconnect. Versatility: The Beats work with multiple devices. Apple is waiving their own flag on this one claiming that the W1 chip (which is not licensed to any other vendor) is revolutionary. I might be. However, the Bose connection method is 10 times better. With Beats, you have to manually disconnect from one device and manually reconnect to the next. With Bose, it does it automatically. I was playing one song on my iPhone, stopped it, and then began playing another phone on my iPad! It switched automatically!!! There was no need for me to do anything. In addition, when I was ready to add my iPad to the Bluetooth link after initially setting up my iPhone, the Bose Connect App asked through my headphones if I wanted to set up and connect to another device. I was flat out floored! And, the connections took just seconds. Sound Quality: First, when I read that some were not satisfied with the sound qualify of the Quietcontrol 30's, I decided that I would risk the $300.00 on sub par ear buds. However, after reading, researching and trying these two headphones I have come to realize one thing. YOU CAN'T EXPECT THE SAME SOUND QUALITY FROM A WIRELESS HEADPHONE THAT YOU GET FROM WIRED ONES!! I believe that some are so accustomed to the extraordinary sound that comes from the Bose wired headphones that they expected to experience the same from the wireless. That is just impossible. I can say that the sound coming from the Bose set is way better than that of the Beats. The Beats have a reputation for delivering heavy bass. However, I played "Shake Your Body Down to the Ground" by the Jacksons to test the two. To my surprise, the Bose "Body Slammed" the Beats on bass! I couldn't believe it. For the record, the sound quality is not as good as my wired headphones but I think the sound is very good.
