QuietComfort 3 full review
Bose has achieved something with this set of on-ear headphones – an effective noise-cancelling solution that’s comfortable to wear and integrates all the technology inside the battery-powered headphones themselves.
The QuietComfort 3’s are compact and foldable with cushioned, leather-covered foam earpieces. The cans offer excellent sound and healthy silences, too: switch them on and wear them without music and you’ll be transported beyond background sound. When it comes to listening to music, these headphones provide a wide soundstage; trebles and mid-range come through well and bass frequencies sound particularly rich and warm, though this reduces sound clarity in some types of music (classical and jazz, for example).
