Bought this just for Active noise cancellation as our neighbours are super noisy crackers who are from some other planet X. See I have to shell out Rs. 26,000 for their atrocities.
and Bose quiet comfort earbuds proved to be the handy solution. It worked its magic by blocking 80 - 90% of all sound blastings, including those from big speakers and horns.
I choose this by rejecting apple's and I am happy with the choice.
Paid big money for the product, but the quietness received in turn in priceless.
ANC: Superb after the immediate firmware auto update but still have to improve - 4 stars
Sound: Big & clear. Amazing - 4 stars (Quality depends on the audio quality in the Bluetooth transmission. Certain mobiles don't have high resolution Bluetooth audio)
Comfort: Fine for wearing for more than 2 hours at a stretch. Need tight air seal for max ANC. So, its not so super comfortable, naturally. - 3 stars
Connectivity: Ear buds connect quick every time to mobile phone, but not the companion Bose app. And that's not a problem (for me) - 3 stars
Mic: Have to speak somewhat louder - 3 stars
Touch controls: Need to get used to, but seems okay - 3 stars
Active usable time: As they said, around 4 hours (ANC - all time) - 4 stars
Battery charge speed: Good
Easy to use: Yes. (Use the correct size stability support rubber clip provided or the expensive bud goes to the ground. Speaker magnet gets weaker. Bose kept No.1 stability clip on the bud and that size is small for adults. First thing, that clip has to be changed for the tight fit of ear)
What I enjoy the most: ANC & listening to occasional music even while there is ear deafening noise outside.
Final word: If ANC is your primary concern, BOSE is like a BOSS.
