Listen up, audiophiles: In case you haven’t heard, Bose 700 Bluetooth headphones are the gold standard when it comes to noise cancelling and audio quality. This powerful headset recently got a sleek design upgrade too, with ergonomic ear cups and a stainless steel headband.
And right now, you can score $35 off the list price—but you have to know where to look. Here’s the secret: The international versions of certain products at Amazon are less expensive than the ones you can get from our very own country! Case in point: A pair of the Bose 700 headphones — international version (in Triple Black) is on sale for $364, while the US version of the same headphones costs $379 right now.
So what’s the difference between the international versions and the ones sold in the US? Well, in terms of hardware and software, nothing. They are the exact same model. The only real difference: The one-year warranty for the international version is from trusted Amazon seller Abe's Electronics Center in NJ instead of Bose. And that shouldn’t scare you: The seller has earned a 96 percent positive rating from more than 2,650 reviewers.
Whichever way you slice it, the Bose headphones rock. Crank up your favorite tunes and enjoy rich, multi-layered sound without bothering other people. Working from home and need peace and quiet? These headphones will silence the noise around you.
“The noise cancellation is exceptional on these headphones,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The sound quality was every bit what I expected from Bose. Crisp, rich audio, with an amazing range of clarity, from your treble to mid tones and excellent bass. It’s easy to slip into your own little oasis with these on. They are also quite comfortable, their padded band and ear cups are soft and do not apply much pressure against your head. They are very lightweight and I can wear them for hours without issue.”
You’ve got major comfort with this pair, too. The ear cups are ultra-padded and the headband is customizable to different head shapes and sizes. The Bose headphones also feature 11 levels of noise canceling, thanks to their eight-microphone system (four for each ear cup) that effectively blocks out background noise while isolating your voice (perfect for calls and activating Alexa or Google Assistant).
“I use the set for making three to four conference calls per day,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “At level 10 NC, I literally cannot hear the loud AC unit. It is like magic because I do not understand how it works, but it does.”
“These headphones specialize in noise-cancellation, which I must say makes you seem like a superhero,” added another satisfied shopper. “You can block out almost all noise with music playing. I can't hear anything in a noisy kitchen with smoothie blenders running. However, the sound signature is uniform. The highs, mids and lows shine at the same wavelength. No, these don't have thumping bass, but just enough bass so it doesn't cover up vocals. Vocals are very clear.”
This model can get up to 20 hours of battery life on just one charge too, though a 15-minute boost can offer up to three hours of playback if you’re running on empty.
For $364 (was $399), the Bose 700 headphones come with a handy carrying case (sorry, no charging case with this pair), audio cable for wired connections, an ultra-soft AOM microfiber cloth and a USB-C cable for quick charging.
