Comfortable, angled earcups
Made from synthetic protein leather, they’re soft, durable, and built for all-day listening.
Virtual voice assistants

Controllable noise cancellation
Preset levels of noise cancellation, plus Conversation Mode.

NEW LOOK. NEW FEATURES.
Hear the world around you. On your terms.
With Bose Headphones 700, we’ve even improved on what we’re most known for. You can now personalize your environment with 11 levels of noise cancellation. As you increase the noise cancellation, you incrementally minimize the distractions you hear in loud places. Or, decrease it to the point where you hear the world as if you weren’t wearing active noise cancelling headphones at all.
For quick interruptions, press a button for Conversation Mode to pause the music and let surrounding noise in — perfect to quickly place a coffee order or chat with a coworker.

What is the difference between Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 and QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?
QuietComfort 35 headphones II offer a classic solution for anyone who wants acclaimed noise cancelling technology and volume-optimized audio performance. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 also deliver on this promise, but feature a brand-new acoustic design to achieve slightly better noise cancelling than QC35 II while also allowing you to transition from full isolation to full transparency. Another key improvement is the adaptive four-microphone system that automatically adapts to your environment to isolate your voice from competing noises so that you can confidently take a call, or talk to your voice assistant. And a new touch interface provides intuitive gesture-based controls for managing your content.
What is TriPort acoustic headphone structure?
Proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure utilizes external ports to vent the earcups and effectively enlarge the acoustic volume, without increasing the size of the earcup. The result is better audio and active noise reduction from a smaller, lighter, more comfortable headphone. TriPort acoustic headphone structure is used in all our consumer headphones and headsets.
How is the total noise cancellation in Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 achieved?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 utilize both active and passive noise reduction technologies. They use a sophisticated proprietary electronics approach to active noise reduction, placing microphones both inside and outside the earcups. The electronics system senses the sound in almost any environment and then measures, compares, and reacts — instant by instant — to produce an opposing cancellation signal. The passive noise reduction is achieved by the combination of the acoustic design and materials chosen for the earcups and cushions.
How many microphones do the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are comprised of a new, eight microphone system. Six microphones are used as part of the noise cancelling technology to manage how much or how little of your surroundings you hear. And two of those microphones combine with two others to deliver unrivaled voice pickup performance.
Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 take calls?
Yes. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have an adaptive four-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.
How do I pair Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 with my mobile device?
First, make sure your headphones are turned on with a single press of the upper button on the back of the right earcup. Next, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds to put the headphones into pairing mode. Please note, if this is your first time connecting the headphones, they will automatically turn on right into this pairing mode. Voice prompts will provide you with additional guidance. We recommend you use the Bose Music app to complete the pairing process, however, you can also use the Bluetooth settings on your device.
Can Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 be simultaneously connected to two mobile devices?
Yes. Multi-point technology allows Bose Headphones 700 to maintain a connection to two devices at the same time — for example, an iPad and a smartphone. So while you’re watching video on the connected iPad, the headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call from the connected smartphone. When the call is finished, the headphones switch 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 33 ft (10 meters) from the source device. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room 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.
How do I control volume or manage my content with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700?
The front half of the right earcup houses our touch interface for basic controls. This includes intuitive gestures like slide up and down for volume control and slide forward and back for track forward/back controls. In additional, a double tap will pause or play your content and also answer or hang up a call.
How do I fold the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 for storage?
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 utilize 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. While the new design improves ease of use and utility, the thin wedge shape also facilitates storage in tight locations, including seat pockets, backpacks, and bags.
Is my mobile device compatible with Bose AR?
Bose AR is currently compatible with iPhone and iPad devices. Bose AR-enhanced apps for Android users are in development. Bose AR features and availability may vary.
How do I use my phone’s default virtual assistant?
Using the lower button on the back of the right earcup, Bose Headphones 700 give you access to your phone’s default virtual assistant, like Siri.
How do I set up the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa as my preferred voice assistant?
Use the Bose Music app to set up one of our voice assistant partners. It will guide you through the setup process, allowing you to set up an integrated button access feature that will automatically connect to your voice assistant app.
What happens if I’m in a country where the Google Assistant or Alexa are not yet supported?
The Bose Music app will guide you to select from a given region’s available features. For regions where only one is available, the app will automatically display the one you can select. In regions where neither is available, the voice assistant button will default to the native voice assistant available on the mobile device.
What kinds of things can I ask Alexa to do?
Press and release the voice assistant button, and just start talking. Alexa will help you manage your music and get things done — like start a playlist, play a favorite song, order products from Amazon, and control Alexa-enabled devices in your home. It can help you get notifications from Alexa about when your Amazon order has shipped. You can ask things like:
“Alexa, play ’90s pop.”
“Play the song that goes ‘take a walk on the wild side.’”
“Alexa, read a book from Audible.”
“Alexa, add milk to my shopping list.”
What kinds of things can I ask the Google Assistant to do?
To ask your Google Assistant a question, simply press and hold the voice assistant button to talk, and release when you’re done with your question. Your Google Assistant will read you your notifications, like an audio lock screen. The Google Assistant also provides you with proactive notifications, such as an incoming text message, a meeting reminder, and many others. You can have the Google Assistant expand on these notifications with a single press or reject them with a double press. You can ask for things like:
“Play the news” or “Tell me the latest news.”
“Set a timer for 35 minutes.”
“Add olive oil to my shopping list.”
“Turn the living room lights to turquoise.”
“Tell me about my day” and “What can you do?”
