Critically acclaimed for their powerful noise cancelling, astonishing sound and unrivalled voice pickup, Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 help turn any space into the perfect place to listen to music, get work done or just shut out the world for a few moments and relax. So if you’re looking for the best wireless Bluetooth headphones for music and calls, you’ve found them.
The patented active noise cancelling technology in Headphones 700 uses microphones both inside and outside the earcups to monitor the sounds around you and instantly produce an opposite signal to cancel them out, creating an empty stage for your music to play on. At the same time, our proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure uses external ports to vent the earcups and maximise the acoustic space inside, giving your music depth and detail.
Headphones 700 offer sound control that’s available only from Bose, including 11 settings that range from full noise cancelling (which helps isolate you from your surroundings) to full transparency (which helps let your surroundings in, as if you weren’t wearing headphones at all). Plus, one click triggers Conversation Mode, which simultaneously switches your headphones to full transparency and pauses your music, for a momentary break from private listening.
Headphones 700 feature a revolutionary microphone system that’s unlike any other headphones, with game-changing voice pickup engineered for making and taking calls in less-than-ideal conditions. Six mics work together to cancel the noise around you so you can hear the caller better, while four mics combine to improve the clarity of your voice so the caller can hear you better, first by isolating your speech and then by suppressing the most disruptive remaining sound around you. It all happens in real time and adapts as you—or the source of the noise—moves.
Even though we’ve been making noise cancelling headphones for decades, for Headphones 700 we began with a clean slate. The result? A head-turning new form factor, designed for all-day, everyday use. Earcups tilted at 15 degrees to mirror the anatomy of the human head and ears. Ear cushions made from plush protein leather for long listening sessions. A streamlined steel headband, tuned to clamp securely but not uncomfortably, and an underside of soft silicone-covered foam. And so much more.
We worked hard to make Headphones 700 easy to use. The right earcup features capacitive touch sensors, so you can manage volume, calls and music without looking at your phone. Low-profile buttons control the power, noise cancelling presets and voice assistant (VPA) access. Built-in voice control gets you to your music, messages and information fast. And the Bose Music app lets you access selectable EQ, manage your Bluetooth connections, change your VPA, check your battery life and more.
Want to watch TV but not disturb anyone else? With Bose SimpleSync™ technology, you can pair your Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 with a Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 for a personal TV listening experience. Independent volume controls allow you to lower or mute your soundbar while keeping your headphones as loud as you like.
What is the difference between Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 and QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?
Both QuietComfort 35 headphones II and Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are wireless Bluetooth headphones. For music, both are engineered with proprietary active equalisation, so they avoid boosted bass, vocals and treble that create listener fatigue over time, opting instead for faithful reproduction that’s clear, natural and balanced. Both headphones also feature controllable noise cancelling; however, while QuietComfort 35 offers three settings, Headphones 700 offers 11—including a full-transparency experience that gives the term “off” an entirely new meaning. While the highest setting delivers the most powerful silence, the lowest lets your surroundings pass through the earcups fully—so with the flick of a switch, you hear yourself, others and everything else like you aren’t wearing a headset at all. Conversation Mode lets you gain the same awareness while enjoying content—so you can pause entertainment and noise cancelling simultaneously, chat face to face or listen for announcements, and resume where you left off when you’re done.
How does the noise cancelling in Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 work?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 use both active and passive noise reduction technologies. Active noise cancelling relies on a sophisticated proprietary-electronics approach using microphones both inside and outside the earcups to monitor the sounds around you and instantly produces an opposite signal to cancel the noise. Meanwhile, passive noise reduction is achieved by the combination of the acoustic structure and the earcup fit.
What is TriPort acoustic headphone structure?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 feature our proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure, which uses external ports to vent the earcups and maximise the acoustic space inside, so your audio content sounds big and bold.
How many microphones do the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 feature a total of eight microphones. 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 defence, 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 or your environment changes. It works with any VPA, any phone paired to the 700s, or any phone or phone/headphone combination on the far-end.
Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 take calls?
Yes. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have an adaptive microphone system that allows you to use the headphones during calls when connected to any smartphone. In addition to traditional calls, the headphones will work with many apps that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), such as Skype or FaceTime.

Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 be connected to two mobile devices simultaneously?
Yes. Multi-point technology allows Bose Headphones 700 to maintain a wireless Bluetooth connection to two devices at the same time—for example, an iPad and a smartphone. So while you’re watching a video on the connected iPad, the headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call from the connected smartphone. When the call has finished, the headphones will swap back to the video on the iPad.
What is the range of Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have a range of up to 10 metres (33 ft) from the source device. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room that the user is in and the adjacent room. This range may be reduced by physical obstructions, such as walls and doors, or by interference from other electronic devices. Pops or a crackling noise may be heard if there’s interference with the Bluetooth connection. If that happens, move away from wireless routers or microwaves and bring your headphones closer to the Bluetooth device.
How long will the battery stay charged?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 use a custom-designed lithium-ion rechargeable battery that provides up to 20 hours of full-featured audio playback.

Bose Headphones 700 also give you two options when it comes to audio EQ. Do nothing and the bass, mid-range and treble of whatever you’re listening to will be adjusted automatically to make it sound great. Or choose “Equalizer” in the settings of the Bose Music app to change the audio levels yourself to however you like them best. Either way, you’ll enjoy immersive sound at any volume.

How do I fold the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 for storage?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 utilise a hidden pivot design to quickly fold flat with one twist of the earcups and store neatly in a thin, tapered hard case. Inside the case, there is a dedicated cable management compartment with a magnetic cover. This design improves ease of use and utility, while the thin wedge shape also facilitates storage in tight locations, including seat pockets, backpacks and bags.
