It was in 1964 that the Bose brand was born in the United States. Taking the name of its founder, Amar G. Bose, it specializes in audio equipment. A pioneer in this field, she designed the first loudspeaker in 1968 and became essential to the general public and music industry professionals. It even made a name for itself in the aeronautics and automotive sectors. Today, in 2023, it continues to perform and deliver products of impressive quality.
With its modern and classy line, the Bose QC 45 Bluetooth headphones do not bear the name QuietComfort for nothing. In addition to being particularly resistant, it is on a par with its main competitor, the Sony WH-1000XM4. Its weight is perfectly distributed over the entire skull thanks to a wonderfully designed arch. The user does not have the feeling of being in the center of a vice and the comfort remains optimal, even after several hours of use.
Looking at the headset, we notice its physical buttons and sliders. Although it may seem a little outdated for some people, these buttons are very visible and clickable, old-fashioned. Volume, playback, pausing, noise reduction dosage… the QC45 does not bother with frills and relies on efficiency and not the sometimes hazardous touch. It is not with this helmet that you will find the customization of controls. It’s a choice and it suits some people very well.
Usable wired and wireless (Bluetooth), the QC 45 is part of the range of so-called “active noise reduction” headphones. Under this term hides a brilliant technology that comes to attenuate all ambient noise. The microphones placed inside and outside the hulls thus adapt the sound for the experience to be optimal. And in certain situations, such as public transport for example, that changes everything!
Very easy to use, the Bose QC 45 incorporates a few new features compared to its predecessor. It is now equipped with a USB-C port dedicated to charging, support for voice assistants (Google Home, Siri, Alexa), optimized active equalization (to have a punchy and clear sound at the times) or an Aware mode that supports active noise reduction for even better rendering. In the category, it is the best. Comfortable, with a convincing autonomy (24 hours), a top finish and an approach combining tradition and modernism, these headphones offer a very rich, balanced sound and totally suitable for movies, games or listening to music.
Normally available at a price of 349 euros, the Bose QC 45 wireless headphones are currently on sale at 309 euros at Son-Vidéo.com.
