The Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones are made for a king. The earphones are the best noise-canceling headphones available. They are better than the Bose QC35 II, Sony WH-1000XM3, and Bose 700 noise cancellation headphones that are just as great. Furthermore, you get great value even with the wired connection. The QC25 still outperforms every other headphone with noise cancellation.

Bose QuietComfort 25 Design
Over the years, Bose has spruced up their line of headphones, and the QC25 was one of the earphones released on their 50th birthday. The headset has a stylish design that was made for the new generation packed in a carrying case with zipping. Compared to the QuietComfort 15, you already see improvements that are subtle with the QC25. Bose moved away from the executive-style leather design, refreshing the QC25 headband with cotton and felt. Compared to the latest models in the brand, the QuietComfort 25 still looks cool. The only thing using the headset is that you will not get rid of the headphone hair caused by the QC25.
Furthermore, the cups sealed with paint, and the earcups have an ovular shape. You get accents of charcoal, blue, and black, giving a nice touch to the plastic. On the other hand, the QuietComfort 25 has an over-the-ear cup design as well. Moreover, you will have no problem placing the headphones on incorrectly as the earcups marked for left or right etched into the mesh design. On the left, can you have the aux port and the headphones include a 3.5mm cable with inline controls? You can even call up SIRI with the inline remote. On the other side of the headphone, you have the noise-canceling switch to shut out the outside world. To add to the features, you can pay a bit extra and have your QC25 customized in a color you prefer.
Bose QuietComfort 25 Design
Now comparing the QC25 to the QC15, the headphone had to be on to use the noise-canceling. Bose addressed the flaw, and now you can use the QuietComfort 25 without noise-cancellation, and it is battery-free. Therefore, if you do want to shut yourself from the outside world, all you need to do is use the switch available on the right earcups. Using the QC25 with AAA batteries, the noise-cancellation is sufficient to remove ambient noise. You can use the feature up to 35-hours per cell. However, when it comes to sound, the QC25 shines.
You hear the lows, mids, and highs coming through clear. No matter what tunes you listen to, it is incredible. Using the noise cancellation immerses you into the sound and engulfs your ears. You can use the headphones for watching movies, listening to music, and even with your PC. When using the QC25 with the noise-canceling function off, you still get a respectable resonance with the highlights mentioned earlier.
