Engadget Review

Bose is no longer at the top of the noise cancelling headphone race, but the 700 is an excellent option with powerful ANC. However, Sony’s WH-1000XM3 has better overall audio, and arguably better noise cancellation -- all for $100 less. The 700 isn’t the best, but it’s still really damn good.
