Speaking of head-mounted wireless noise cancelling headphones, the Bose QC series is definitely the benchmark for the entire noise cancelling headphone industry, and is well-known in the industry for its excellent noise cancelling technology.
Now the newly upgraded Bose QuietComfort 45 has been launched. The powerful noise cancelling performance allows this headphone to keep away from noise on frequent business trips and commuting in airplanes, trains, subways, cars and other transportation, better relax and rest, and improve the comfort of the journey.
For students, a noise cancelling headset can better isolate external interference, allowing us to concentrate on studying and reviewing, and greatly improve learning efficiency. Some time ago we conducted the detail teardown of the Bose QuietComfort 45. Today we are here to experience the Bose QuietComfort 45 over-ear wireless noise cancelling headphone with everyone.
Unboxing: exquisite packaging, full of unboxing ceremony
First, let’s take a look at the box of Bose QuietComfort 45. The front is a rendering of the headphone, using a three-dimensional printing style, and the texture is very good.
There is a hook on the top of the box, which is convenient for dealers to hang and display. At the same time, on the back are the parameters and instructions of the headphone, and the overall style belongs to the Nordic concise style.
The bottom of the earphone packaging box is easy to pull and quick to release, which is in line with the current design ideas of major manufacturers, and the package can be opened with a light pull.
Open the box, we can see the headphone. The headset we got this time is a white version. Compared with the silver of the previous generation, the headphone of this generation is more fashionable.
Appearance: Continuation of the classic design, excellent texture, more comfortable to wear
Bose QuietComfort 45 continues Bose’s classic design, and the off-white color scheme conforms to the aesthetics of the current young people, making it younger and more fashionable.
On the left earmuff of the headphone, there is still Bose’s iconic physical power switch, and when it is turned to the far right, bluetooth pairing can be performed, which is very practical. There is also the classic “Bose” LOGO on the earmuffs, and the small holes next to the earmuffs are dedicated noise cancelling devices for noise monitoring.
In order to further improve the wearing comfort of the headphone, the headphone uses a leather head beam and earmuffs. The leather earmuffs are very delicate in touch and feel very good to wear, which can better fit our ears. And the light-weight head beam design does not appear to be indented at all.
In addition, the earphone is designed with a retractable lever, which is convenient for users to freely adjust the opening and closing according to their head circumference. The rotatable design of the earmuffs further enhances the wearing comfort of the earphones.
Noise Cancelling & Sound Quality: Noise cancelling belongs to the first echelon, with excellent sound quality
In the Bose Music APP, I can make some settings for the headphone. Bose QuietComfort 45 has two built-in modes: transparency mode and noise cancelling mode, which can be switched by the button on the left earmuff. The two modes deal with most of the current scenes without any problems, and the use experience is more convenient. But for a small number of users, there is no multi-level noise cancelling setting, which may feel a little regrettable.
Scene 1: In the office – Isolate most of the low-frequency noise
In the office, the environmental noise is about 56-70 decibels. Since I was sitting under the central air conditioner, the noise was about 60 decibels. When the noise cancelling mode is turned on, and the music is not turned on, I can hear the slight air conditioner working sound. And the bottom noise of Bose QuietComfort 45 has a certain improvement compared to Bose QuietComfort 35. If you don’t listen carefully, you can hardly feel it.
Scene 2: Daily commuting on the subway – Excellent noise cancelling effect
Later, I experienced this headphone on the commuter subway. After putting on the earphones, the surrounding noise disappeared instantly, including low frequency such as wind noise outside the car window and the sound of train running. When the train is running, we can not hear any other sounds except for the impact of the wheels and rails. In addition, when you are not listening to music, you can fully hear the sound of subway station announcements. If you need to hear the surrounding situation clearly, you can turn on the transparency mode, which will amplify the surrounding sound and let us better understand the surrounding situation.
Due to the recent severe epidemic, I have not experienced this headphone on an airplane for the time being. This is more regrettable, and we will bring you a detailed experience in the follow-up.
Above the right ear cup of the headphone is the volume and pause buttons. We chose Eason Chan’s “Ten Years” and “Under Mount Fuji” to experience. The resolution effect of the earphone is good, the bass is stable, the treble is clear and clear, and the actual listening experience is good. Used to listen to most pop music, there is no problem at all, and the actual sound quality is excellent.
Upgrade Bluetooth 5.1 and Type-C interface: Daily use is more convenient
Bose QuietComfort 45 is upgraded with Bluetooth 5.1, which makes the connection more stable and faster. In terms of stability, through the past few days of use, there is no bluetooth disconnection, and the use experience is good. In terms of call effect, we tested it with WeChat Voice, and the reception was accurate. Even in some noisy environments, the noise cancelling microphone can accurately receive the sound, and the call effect is absolutely excellent.
The headphone has also upgraded the Type-c interface, and finally can get all the devices with one cable, this upgrade is really good. In terms of battery life, when the noise cancelling mode was turned on, we listened to the song for 2 hours and the volume was about 30%. In the end, the power of the headphone dropped by about 5%. According to calculations, it can provide more than 30 hours of battery life, allowing users to bid farewell to battery life anxiety.
The appearance of Bose QuietComfort 45 is more fashionable, and the overall coating is off-white, and the texture is further improved compared to Bose QuietComfort 35. In terms of wearing comfort, the leather head beam and earmuffs allow the headphone to be worn for a long time and still maintain excellent comfort.
In terms of noise cancelling, there is an upgrade compared to the previous generation, but the upgrade is not as big as imagined, but it still belongs to the current first echelon. The effect of noise cancelling is very good. For users who pursue fashion and high-quality noise cancelling, Bose QuietComfort 45 is definitely a better choice.
