With the cost of living (still) on the rise, we decided to make a list of the most expensive Bose earbuds that you want, but probably don’t need.

It can be hard to know where to start when you’re on the market for a new pair of earbuds. With a myriad of options, each trying to outdo each other on specs, it’s a frustrating audio jungle out there. So, let us focus on the most expensive (for a reason) on the market.

Why Bose earbuds?

We can only assume that if you’re reading this article, you’re in the thick of the research process of buying a new pair. Either way let’s forget Apple, Sennheiser, Sony and the rest for now. If you’re serious about falling into the dimension of high-quality sound while annoying your significant other with an unnecessary purchase, then let us guide you with this list of Bose earbuds.

Bose have been around for decades – in fact since 1964.With that much experience behind them, it’s inevitable that they should know a thing or two about high quality sound, comfort and sleek overall looks.

The below list should hopefully be enough for you to make that all important decision.

1. Bose QuietComfort Ultra, become fully immersive or fully aware

Let’s get started with the traveler’s favorite: the Quiet Comfort Ultra. As with most models from Bose they have had a recent upgrade for a fully immersive audio experience while on the go.

The QuietComfort have been setting the standard in sound technology for a while now and they come with noise cancelling features alongside new immersive audio features. They are sleek in design giving the wearer all day comfort and of course a high quality sound.

The QuietComfort comes with three listening modes that include noise cancellation, quiet mode for self-awareness, and a full immersive audio mode experience for when the mood suits. The noise cancellation aspect leads over to the microphone which will filter out background noise, so no more “I can’t here shit” after leaving a voice message.

The battery life lasts up to six hours (four in immersive mode) and a quick twenty minute charge will give you an extra couple of hours. Useful if you forget to charge them.

The intuitive controls let you switch between modes, answer calls, skip tracks and all that fun stuff. It’s worth noting that you can also listen with one earbud, so, you can keep listening to that new P Money track in one ear, while talking to your mom from the other.

Get yourself these earbuds on Amazon starting at 299 USD.

2. Bose QuietComfort II, Bose earbuds perfect for doom scrolling

The next Bose earbuds on the list is the Bose QuietComfort earbuds II.

With the QuietComfort II, Bose has shrunk the earbuds and charging case by 30%. This allows the Bose earbuds to stick out less, giving the wearer a low profile design that fits the ears better. No more dislodging when you bump them, and the flush feel make them ideal for when your kicking back on the couch or in bed while doom scrolling social media.

As with all Bose earplugs the QuietComfort II offers next level sound quality and noise cancellation. This model also stands out for the built in CustomTune technology. The CustomTune aspect of the earbuds auto-adjusts for sound personalization for a much more immersive experience.

Keep in mind that like the first on the list, this model can also tune out background noise with Quiet Mode which uses active noise cancelling technology.

The Bose Sport Earbuds are marginally better headphones for sport and fitness than the Bose SoundSport Free.

Not earbuds, but allow us to explain.

We’re going to throw a spanner in the works here and feature an over ear model that deserves attention.

To be honest not everyone is about that earbud life, some prefer the comfort of overear headphones, and this is especially true if you’re a producer, gamer or even a regular live streamer.

Welcome to the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones this model comes with acoustic noise cancelling and audio performance controls. Added adjustable EQ which allows the wearer to tune the bass, mid-range, and treble.

Just like the Bose QuietComfort earbuds featured above these come with quiet mode for full noise cancelling as well as awareness mode allowing you to let in surroundings noise when needed.

Four external microphones will isolate your voice, giving crystal clear calls, while a noise-rejecting algorithm filters out environmental sounds for clear conversations, making this an ultimate overear headphone.

Oh and did we say that they come with a 24 hour battery life and motion control to change modes?
