The best review for the Bose QC35 in 2017

Bose QC35 Bluetooth Headphone 2017 Review

Bluetooth headphones have been all the craze in the gym, and there’s a reason why. Without worrying about cords getting in the way, workout sessions become that much more intense.

But what if we told you that out of all the headphones in the market, the BOSE QC35 provides the most best gym experience?

Quick facts of the Bose QC35 Headphones

  • Optimal Battery life
  • Superior Noise Canceling
  • Durability (Can endure sweat and drops)
  • Comfortable enough to be worn for extended periods
  • No Hassle Bluetooth Connectivity
  • Featherweight and flexible

These headphones are pure luxury and because of good reason. Its lightweight build makes you forget that you’re actually wearing headphones (a benefit all fitness enthusiast praise).

Battery Life

The battery life on the QC35 are by far superior than a lot of the top headphones in the market. With a whopping 20 Hours of battery life, you can literally charge them once every 2 weeks working out 2 hours a day.

What’s even more impressive? Once your 20 hour battery is depleted, a quick 15 minute charge can give the QC35 another 2 hours of battery life! A super benefit for those that tend to forget to charge their headphones.

The QC35 also includes a wired cable, so once you’re battery is depleted you can still use the headphones via wire without the noise canceling functionality.

Bluetooth Connectivity 

Connecting to your device is completely hassle free which is a plus for any gym goer. The last thing you need is to get to the gym and have connection issues.

We’ve tested the QC35 on a variety of different devices and all demonstrated excellent connectivity.


Another exciting bluetooth feature is that we’ve experienced no connection interruptions or drops when working out. ( A HUGE PLUS).

Bose includes a free app that you can download which enhances the user experience as well as the connectivity between devices.

Noise canceling

Bose features their new Acoustic Noise Canceling technology in the QC35. This feature adapts to outside noises and cancels out opposite signals. The result? A solid listening experience without the distractions of the ambient noises.

We found that the ear pad creates a seals which adds to the noise canceling feature. The lightweight pad gently clamps your head making it almost unnoticed when working out.


Let’s face it, we need a headphone that can keep up with our active lifestyle. Nothing fragile and nothing sensitive to moisture. I’ve personally used the QC35 during intense cardio sessions, heavy lifting, and even high interval training. Moisture is easily wiped off and I have yet to experience the headphones falling off.

Bose claims that the QC35 is made of impact-resistant materials, glass-filled nylon and corrosion-resistant stainless steel.

It’s not just durable, but luxuriously featherweight. The headphones are wrapped in Alcantara®, a soft covering material that’s used in yachts and high end vehicles. 

Sound Quality

Clarity is crisp with Mids being the most favored on the QC35. Equipped with Bose’s noise cancelling technology, the user experience is what you’re paying for.

A concern that many will find with these headphones is that the Bass is not as dynamic as the Beats Studio Wireless.

Price point

$349.00 but is currently on sale for $329

The pricing point may be the biggest concern for a lot of people and I don’t blame you. Spending close to $400 for headphones that are going to get beaten up with your active lifestyle can seem ridiculous to some.

Since it’s release I have yet to see these headphones sell for lower than $300 retail.

Overall take

Are these headphones luxurious? you bet. With a steep price point only you can justify if these headphones are worth sweating for.

Here’s the thing, if you can fork out close to $400 and are looking for headphones that can keep up with your active lifestyle, than these headphones are for you.

However, if you cannot justify $400 and don’t need all the features Bose provides in the QC35, I would look elsewhere.
