Bose QuietComfort 45 Noise-Canceling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones - White Smoke is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 579.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary Autistic equipment [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am on the Autism Spectrum, Aspergers specifically. Noise canceling headphones are a necessity to keep me to avoid Meltdowns and keep me calm when I start to get too much sensory input. I have tested MANY NCH’s and none have come close to how well Bose does the job, short of Aviation headphones. But those do not give the unparalleled sound quality I get from Bose. I have used Bose since their Quiet Comfort 25 headphones and with each new series they continue to refine them and add new functionality. Thank you for for the MANY Meltdowns y’all have helped prevent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, balanced sound [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just working with these, and they are great for flying, mowing the lawn and similar noisy things. Sound is realistic, balanced and not too boomy, especially if you like a wide variety, including classical. Music is similar to the qc35 and sound reduction is a bit better. The choice of silent or aware is enough, and other gradations are unnecessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Bose Q45’s would be excellent if… The Bose Q45 are the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. The noise cancellation is excellent too. The music sounds a little too weak for me. Everyone hears music differently so without an equalizer to adjust the levels of sound, I believe Bose has done a disservice to their audience. Bose, where’s the bass? Maybe, a quick New Year’s resolution for Bose would be to implement an update with an equalizer in mind. Bose, we know you could do it, so do it fast! You may not receive as many returns on your Bose Q45’s product due to this extremely obvious overlooked dilemma.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sounding Headphones I've Had [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had many headphones in my life including all the Bose one's. These sound better and feel better than the Bose 700 to me. I also prefer the physical buttons. Only features I wish these had is the 10 different levels of noise cancelling that the 700's have. Outside of that I'm extremely happy with these. Only other suggestion is being able to call on Siri or Alexa without having to push a button first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable But many features are missing! It is the most comfortable headphone but I don’t get it! Why so many things are missing: 1. Eq 2. More control on noise canceling 3. Stop music and hearing the environment in one click 4. Stop the music when you get off head In this price range we deserve more! I don’t feel real different from my old Qc 35 And it disappointed. If no significant software update is released soon next time I will buy Another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Swing and a miss Only ANC on and Aware. Why no Off? Intermittent connection issues Not as comfortable as the qc35 When resting on shoulder ear cups should fold in

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unstable on my head I use these a lot, especially when gardening or working around the house, and I find them quite large and sloppy fitting on my head and not as adjustable and compact as my last set of Bose headphones, which finally wore out after many years of faithful service. Also, the power button is too multifunctional for my taste, as I inadvertently disconnect my other bluetooth devices when I try to just turn it off. These are also uncomfortable if you fall asleep and end up with these under your ear. You're probably wondering if I ever take these off at this point, and the answer is, not much...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Comfy, noise cancelly, but extremely buggy I got this a couple of weeks ago, and I’d be very satisfied if it weren’t for the fact that any time I’m paired to two devices, the audio will cut out for ~1 second every couple of minutes. Not only is it annoying when listening to music, but makes watching any videos nearly impossible because I’m always missing out on what’s being said.
