In our short video, you can hear the built-in microphone of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2. Speech intelligibility is at a good level. Unfortunately, the background noise for our conversation partner is not really reduced during the phone call and is clearly audible.
Wind noise is passed on to your remote station in the form of a whistle. Apple’s AirPods Pro 2 do a better job in this regard – and are priced close to the Bose headphones.
However, this is one of the few weaknesses of Bose in-ears. The strength lies in particular in the active noise suppression, which was convincing in our test and outperformed the competition.
A very good microphone for wireless in-ears is not easy to find. How do you like the microphone of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds 2? Is a good-sounding microphone still important to you or do you primarily use functions like ANC anyway? Write it to us in the comments. We are interested in your opinion on this topic!
