Fun fact, did you know that the Bose QuietComfort 25 was released on the year of Bose’s 50th anniversary? Considering the number of years that Bose has already existed as an expert in the audio market, it’s influence is not surprising, but if there’s anything that needs to be improved, the aesthetics needed some modernization. Bose eventually came through and revealed a new line of products that had a stylish and accessible design. The Bose QuietComfort 25 comes in a leather zip-up carrying case and the headphones have a sporty aura that’s strikingly similar to the QC15 headphones released years ago.
The Bose QuietComfort 25 has moved away from the leathery and professional style of the QC15 and has been washed over with cotton materials that can be seen and felt in the headband. This makeover has been quite a delight for users because it is now less prone to being warm and damp from continuous use. It is worth noting though that while the materials look and feel cool, this model can still give you that so-called “headphone hair”.
The headphone cups also had a makeover; gone are the round over-the-ear cups as Bose replaced its ear cups that have incorporated some sharp edges in place. The Bose QuietComfort 25 comes in color black, blue and charcoal that creates a nice palette.For those who are tired of having to guess which ear cup goes where, the Bose QuietComfort 25 has a big “R” and “L” label etched into the mesh design of the sporty speaker. No more wondering which goes right or left, easy!
Each headphone of the Bose QuietComfort 25 has unique features, making it easy to set apart after some time of usage. The right earcup features the noise cancellation or NC switch while the left ear cup houses the auxiliary port, the point of contact of the 3.5mm cable with the inline controls. If you want to adjust volume, pause a song or get information from Siri, the left earcup is your go-to earcup.
For an additional $100, a user can customize the aesthetics of the unit by choosing a color that fits to his or her taste. Quite frankly, the stock options are already sassy enough but having the option to customize the Bose QuietComfort 25 for a fraction of its price is pretty cool, giving a more personalized audio experience.
