Don’t imagine. Just get yourself some from Bose—like the QuietComfort 35 that are well worth the $350. They’re only a $50 price jump from the wired QuietComfort 25, and are super lightweight and comfortable without sacrificing noise reduction for up to 20 hours. A digital equalizing system balances the sound. Plus, microphones both inside and outside the ear-cups sense, measure and send unwanted sounds to two proprietary digital electronic chips (one for each ear) that respond with an equal and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond. This reduces background noise especially when you’re on a call, so the person on the line can hear you better, and so Siri can do her thing.
So if you’re in the market for new ear candy that’ll drown out your coworker’s cracking knuckles, your neighbor’s loud nighttime performances or your own crying infant, the QuietComfort 35 could be for you.
