  • Fit is always an issue with wireless earbuds, and the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II are no exception. While there is a range of tips included, not everyone’s ears will manage to fit these earbuds. Bose has reduced the dimensions of the original earbuds, but they are still fairly bulky.
  • These are top of the range earbuds, and they come with a hefty price tag. If you are looking for the best of the best, then these are great. But unless you have the cash to burn, you will find better value with over the ear headphones.
  • ANC cannot be disabled. Yes, the ANC is a standout feature of these earbuds, however, there is no way to disable it like on other major brands on the market. This means at best you can reduce it to a minimum or use the Aware function for it to be turned up and down depending on your surroundings.
