The Sound of Silence

Just in time for the summer holiday rush, noise-reduction aficionado Bose has unveiled the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, its newest travel and commuter essential.

Once upon a time, noise-cancelling headphones were the domain of long-haul travelling executives. However, today, in a world that threatens to overwhelm the senses, it’s nice to be able to create a little quiet time, whether you’re working at your desk, catching your train or jetting off to somewhere exotic.

Bose has long been at the forefront of the noise-cancelling headphone scene and the brand’s Bose QuietComfort 35s are some of the best ear candy on the market. The brand has now ushered in a new era of headphones with the wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, featuring the biggest leap forward in headphones since the iconic 35s.

The new Bose 700s introduce a revolutionary new voice interface that redefines mobile communication the way Bose noise cancellation redefined mobile audio. They’re built off the legendary performance of QCs to transform the most demanding environments into private sanctuaries for listening, and in the process, debut pioneering new technologies to deliver 360 degrees of seclusion, complete with crystal clear calls to home and work, and unprecedented accuracy from VPAs. Siri for iOS is easily accessible, the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are both built-in.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have been engineered from the ground up as an integrated system, with a new acoustic and electronics package, new digital signal processing, and a new eight microphone system for the most complete, effortless headphone experience ever. Six microphones dramatically cancel noise, so it doesn’t reach your ears. Two of those microphones combine with two others to dramatically improve voice pickup. A beamform-array isolates your speech, suppressing everything else that’s audible. A rejection-array adds a second line of defense, tracking then blocking the most disruptive remaining sound — from a coffee grinder to other dialogue nearby. It all happens in real-time — adapting as you move, turn your head, and your environment changes.

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 fold flat with one twist of the earcups, and store neatly in a thin tapered hardcase that slides more easily into bags, backpacks, and seat-pockets. They come in Black and Silver and are available this month from US$399.
