Deal on Bose QuietComfort 45 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones for only $249

The Bose QuietComfort 45s are a solid successor to the company’s flagship model for 2019, the Bose QuietComfort 35 IIs, but they lack the refinement of last year’s Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. The QC45s lack some features such as adjustable noise reduction, and their audio performance is not of audiophile quality. However, they are comfortable for long periods of time and easy enough for anyone to use, which is enough to get a lukewarm recommendation.

The Bose QuietComfort 45 are a very solid pair of noise-canceling headphones. They are easy to use and incredibly comfortable to wear for long periods of time. These are features that Bose has always been famous for and they live on here. Of course, the QC45s are not without some new tricks. These include Ambient Aware mode, which allows us to hear the sounds around us at the push of a button, and improved noise-canceling technology that is more responsive than before.

Added to this is a 25-hour battery life, good but not great, and a beam-forming microphone array that, well, is not as good as we had hoped. None of these aspects are a problem, but they make the Bose QuietComfort 45 a little less attractive than some of its competitors. The Bose QuietComfort 45 now comes with an adjustable equalizer. This means that you can set the headphones’ bass, midrange and treble levels to your personal preference, or choose from several preset options.

To access the adjustable equalizer feature, simply update the QC45 headphone firmware by opening the Bose Music app, tapping “Install Update” on the QC45 control screen, and following the on-screen prompts. The Bose QC45s have excellent controls. They have three physical buttons, located on the right earcup, that are easily activated and easy to use. There is also an “Action” button on the left earcup, which serves as a multi-purpose control. There are beeps for reaching minimum and maximum volume, as well as voice prompts for selecting ANC settings.

There are also voice prompts for pairing headphones. Unfortunately, there is no feedback if you skip tracks. The case for the Bose QC45s is excellent. It is made of leatherette and feels sturdy and solid. There is a zipper to help secure the headphones when traveling, and there is a small pouch inside the case to store the supplied cables when not in use. The Bose QuietComfort 45s have decent stability. They should stay on your head when you use them at your desk or couch. However, they can fall off your head with more intense movements, such as during an outdoor run.

On the plus side, they have a wireless design, so there is no need to worry about something snagging them and pulling them off your head. The Bose QuietComfort 45s have a very neutral sound profile, suitable for a variety of audio content. There is a hint of extra bass that adds a bit of tonality, a bit of rumble, and a bit of liveliness to mixes, but it doesn’t overpower the main voices and instruments. Fortunately, if you prefer a different sound, the companion app offers a graphic equalizer and presets to help you adjust the sound to your liking.
