Bose QuietComfort 45 Headphones Review: Not quite enough to reclaim the throne

January 11, 2022

Let’s get this straight out of the way. If you own the already-excellent Bose QuietComfort 35 II, or the Bose NC 700 headphones then the newer and only slightly more impressive Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones aren’t worth the upgrade.

Bose Sport Earbuds Review: excellent sound, superb fit… the best out right now?

April 8, 2021

Bose Sleepbuds II Review: Helping you get those eight hours

April 6, 2021

Inconsistent battery performance and some design flaws lead to Bose discontinuing their first iteration of the Bose Sleepbuds a few years ago. Which was disappointing. It’s an incredible concept – having some buds designed and in complete dedication to getting quality sleep, as opposed to music -playing in-ear phones that also threw in a bunch […]

Bose Frames Tempo Review: Second-generation wearable audio fares much better for the audio giants

November 30, 2020

When Bose first released their wearable Bose Frames, I was a bit sceptical. The dependable audio company opting out of the bone-conduction approach many other competing open-ear headphones use was an odd choice. On the other hand, it’s Bose – good sound is expected.

Bose Portable Home Speaker Review: Great sound on the go

May 20, 2020

Bose’s SoundLink Micro is one of my favourite small speakers to date, so I’m always going to pay close attention when the reliable audio company plays in the portable space. More recently, that’s been with the bluntly named Bose Portable Home Speaker (BPHS) which is essentially a more powerful and thicker finesse of the popular […]

October 28, 2019

It may seem a bit too novel – and it is in a way – but Bose Frames represent an important evolution for one of the world’s leading audio companies. It’s understandable that the first move in a brand new tech genre has its misgivings. Released earlier this year, Bose took a break from their […]

December 19, 2017

Let’s get straight to it: Bose have struck excellent balance with their SoundLink Micro, released earlier this year, and it’s arguably the best sounding speaker of its size that you’ll find on the shelves this holiday season.
