The world of noise-canceling headphones is shaking today with the news that Bose has a new flagship model, called 700 Noise Canceling Headphones. They cost $ 399.95, they look nothing like the existing QC35 II , and they are not & # 39; Actually I'm going to replace those more affordable cans. This is Bose, which indicates its intention to increase in price, characteristics and, presumably, quality. Along with the new edition on the ear, the company also introduced the true Bose Wireless Earbuds 500, which we can expect by the end of 2019, followed by the Bose Noise Canceling Earbuds 700 in 2020. The roadmap has been presented to us.  The design of the NCH 700 (I call it that from now on, I have decided it) seems much more elegant and modern than that of the QC 35s. The shape of the headband immediately reminds us of Sony's 1000X M3, which remain the most comfortable NC headsets ever designed. But Bose is proud of what is inside, as the company has made voice assistants an important feature of the NCH 700, stating that "you can remain connected without problems to your phone without looking at it or even touching it". Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri will be ready to answer your call.
Bose also considers that it has the best microphone system in the world incorporated into a pair of headphones, which will be fun. Try it. There are four microphones and the company makes big promises about its noise cancellation and voice isolation capabilities. There is also a new Bose AR platform, which will serve as an augmented audio reality tool. The examples provided by Bose are very good: just look at the reference points around you while using your Bose headphones, and compatible applications will inform you about them, or you will get context-specific instructions, such as "Turn left at McDonald & # 39 ; s ".
Noise cancellation in the headphones themselves is now adjustable, with 11 different intensity settings. One thing I'm worried about is the addition of touch controls, which Bose says are now on the front of the right earmuff NCH 700. I still have to experience the commendable touch controls on the headphones.
You can preorder the 700 Noise Canceling Headset, in a black or white option, now for a June 20 delivery date.
