The world of noise-canceling headphones is shaken today with the news that Bose has a brand new flagship model, called Noise Canceling Headphones 700. They cost $ 399.95, look nothing like the existing QC35 IIs, and aren & # 39; t actually going to replace the less expensive boxes. This is Bose signaling its purpose to go up in price, features, and presumably, quality. Along with the new over-ear edition, the company also presents true wireless Bose Earbuds 500, which we can expect at the end of 2019, to be followed by Bose Noise Canceling Earbuds 700 by 2020. The directions are provided to us.  Designed by the NCH 700s (I call them as of now, I've decided) looks far slicker and more modern than the QC 35s. They have a USB-C charging port, which was delayed from Bose, and the company claims 20 hours of "full" playback. The shape of the headband is reminiscent of Sony's 1
Bose also expects it to have the world's best microphone system ever built into a pair of headphones, which will be a fun thing to test out. There are four microphones, and the company promises great noise reduction and voice isolation capabilities. There is also a new Bose AR platform, which will act as a sound-enhanced reality tool. The examples provided by Bose are pretty cool: You only look at landmarks around you while wearing the Bose headphones, and compatible apps will tell you about them, or you get context-specific directions like "Turn left at McDonald's."

Noise interruptions in the headphones themselves are now adjustable, with 11 different intensity settings. One thing I'm skeptical about is the addition of touch controls, which Bose says are now located on the front of the right NCH 700 ear cup.
You can pre-order noise-canceling headphones 700, in the choice of black or white, now for a June 20 delivery date.
