I first discovered noise cancelling headphones out of sheer necessity. Why? I was going insane.
I had an office job at a hip, young start-up company and the CEO thought it’d be so great for everybody to require the receptionist to keep the office-wide sound system tuned to the local pop music radio station. At high volume.
The reasoning was to create a “fun” atmosphere and so that visiting clients could see how “cool” we were. I hope you can imagine me rolling my eyes right now.
As somebody who needs relative quiet to focus on my work, it was maddening. And my pleas fell on deaf ears. I would have to find a way around it.
That’s when Bose saved my mind from breaking. I read a bunch of positive reviews, and justified the high price as worth it to work in peace.
And boy, was I right. When my Bose Quiet Comfort headphones arrived, I popped in the AAA battery and flipped the switch. Blessed silence. With just the noise cancelling feature on, the music from the loudspeakers was a distant, muffled noise. When I plugged it into my laptop and cued up some nice Mozart, I was lost in a world of my own. I had bought peace of mind.
So here’s the thing: I wanted to write a guide on the top pairs of noise cancelling headphones, but I can really only recommend one in particular. That’s because I didn’t mess around with any others, and my pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 15 headphones are still going strong five years later (I only had to change the ear cushions once).
If you are going insane from background noise, I urge you to invest in a pair. The money will pay itself back over time in productivity.
Look No Further Than Bose for Noise Cancelling Headphones
I bought the Bose Quiet Comfort 15s five years ago, and I still use them every day. I had to pay $11 once to replace the ear cushions. That was after four years of use.
Now, I see that Bose is on the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling – Black model. I was able to test this model, and it is phenomenal. Definitely worth the purchase. Why?
- EQ at all volume levels. Very high quality sound.
- Wireless! This is an improvement over the previous Quiet Comfort models. Bluetooth and NFC.
- 20 hours of battery life while wireless
- 40 hours of battery life while wired
- Dual-rejecting microphone. Take calls in the wind!
