Bose QuietControl 30 review: Great sound but uncomfortable to wear

Superlative noise cancellation and good sound quality, but there’s too much wrong with the design of the Bose QuietControl 30

Pros
Great noise cancelling
Good sound quality
Compact and lightweight
Cons
Uncomfortable, awkward design
Mediocre battery life

Ask a group of business travellers to name one brand of noise-cancelling headphones and Bose will almost certainly dominate the list of answers. It’s an enviable position to be in, but with competition on the rise Bose isn’t resting on its laurels: the Bose QuietControl 30 is the second pair of wireless and active noise-cancelling cans it’s released in 2016, the first being the Bose QuietComfort 35.

The QuietControl 30 is a very different pair of headphones, however. Instead of a full-on, over-the-ear design, these are in-ear headphones of the “neck-bud” style. There are a couple of advantages innate to this style of headphone. First, they’re far more compact than over-ear headphones; if you’re travelling light and you travel a lot, that’s an important consideration.

Second, they’re more comfortable to wear than the sort of wireless active noise-cancelling headphones that dangle the battery compartment from one ear or simply rest it on the back of your neck.
