    Best Noise-Cancelling Earbuds

    |
    Posted .

    These earbuds are fantastic. I own these as well as the over-ear QC-15s and I find that they both behave about the same, which is extraordinarily well. These can be worn for hours without discomfort, unlike the apple buds given out with iPhones, and I find that they aren't as bulky as the overears. They were a bit challenging to learn how to put in at first... but it isn't a problem once you get used to it. I tend to prefer these for day-to-day use when out and about town because you can toggle the noise-cancelling feature, but the over-ear design for plane travel.

    greatest in ear headphones

    I was unsure at first nd tried them nd by far the best set of in ear headphones I've ever had or on the market out there. I've had the other bose headphones in ear nd out of ear ones also the Dre beats both in ear nd out....ND was just amazed by not only the quality but the sound is unreal could not believe how nice nd crisp they sound nd then turning on the noise cancelling wow you don't here nothing but the music. Just by far the best headphones still cannot believe or understand how they our that great... simply amazing what bose has done nd how they have changed the game up now other manufacturers have got to be upset with this fantastic piece of not only quality but design aswell.. if you got the money or put em on a credit card cause your definitely going to want these .. they do not want to come out of your ear witch makes them great for activities and such.....bose out did themselves

    #1 For Business

    I have spent thousands of dollars on every one of the best Blutooth headsets in the world. I listen to my piers talk on these very expensive Blutooth headsets. They all sound bad and if you own an expensive Blutooth headset and someone says you sound good then they are only being polite. If you want your clients, business associates to hear every word you are saying, clearly and perfectly then get this headset. Also, with the noise canceling you will hear every word they are saying regardless if you are in an airport, train station or Mid Town Manhattan. Simply put, keep whatever you have as a backup but if you are in business and you want to hear and be heard get the best and buy this headset.

    Best Ear Phones

    I bought these because I travel a lot. Since they fit in your ears they don't prevent you for resting your head up on the window or the seat. When turned on you don't hear anything but the tunes coming out of the ear phones. No baby crying behind you just the sound coming from your ear phones.

    Great performance

    I was skeptical about buying this in ear noise canceling earphones due to size and doubt on performance. I tried them at an airport on a travel trip and decided to buy them when I got back just in case I wanted to return them. I took them on my first air travel trip a week later and found out they work just as good as the over the ear that I used to bring with me. I love their performance and the easy of travel, no more bulk to cary with me. I'm still not sure on durability for the plug and storage seems to bend the cord a lot and I'm afraid it will break with time.

    I have owned several Bose 20s. They are very convenient due to their size. The wires are cumbersome, but I tried the new Sony wireless noise cancelling earbuds, but they kept falling off my ears. I reverted to Bose. The Bose 20's liability is their durability. They only last about a year with normal use. After that, their electronics fail.

    Outstanding noise-canceling earbuds

    |
    Posted .

    This is my third Bose audio product - I also own the QuietComfort 15 headphones and SoundSport Bluetooth earbuds. I bought these to be a more compact replacement for the QC15’s while traveling and I have to say I am amazed by the noise cancellation and audio fidelity aspects of these – seem every bit as “quiet” as the QC15’s and with the high audio quality of the SoundSports. The size of the battery/noise processor element is not a problem and it seems to have the advertised long battery life. I was hesitant due to the price but after using these I have no regrets. Really outstanding.

    I didn't realize how much background noise this blocks, until I used it on my Playstation. I was able to hear so much more detail. Also helps while on the road, while trying to sleep at hotels in noisy cities.

    Awesome headphones

    Posted .

    I really like the Bose over ear that I have. Big con is that they are bulky to travel with. I purchased these to travel lighter. They work just as well when compared to the Bose over ear noise canceling. They are light and i can fit them in a MUCH smaller space. Only drawback is that they are configured for Android or Apple because of volume functions. Other than that I would not even think twice to purchase again. As far as Active noise Canceling is concerned Bose has it dowwn and does it very well.

    Fantastic for air travel

    I bought these earbuds specifically for the noise reduction function for an upcoming flight to the east coast. They exceeded my expectations. They were terrific for pure engine noise reduction (while sleeping) and the sound quality of my music was wonderful. Pure bliss being able to drown out the relentless engine drone. Also tried using them on BART. They certainly reduced a lot of the clatter, especially going through the tunnels, but not completely. However, better on than off! Yes, they were expensive, but oh so worth it. The little unit which comes with it is a little irksome but I decided to put all extraneous wires and the unit back into the carrying case and I just held on to that while using the earbuds. It was just fine.

    Well worth it for the best silence ever.

    I must admit I was very skeptical of these because I have owned the Over the Ear ones for a few years now and did not think the Earbuds would be able to cancel out the noise sufficiently. I am pleasantly surprised and thankful they work phenomenally and are very comfortable as well. I have extreme sound sensitivity from a TBA so silence is a necessity for me. Now make them in just black and they would be close to perfect.

    Amazing! Flying is so different now!

    These headphones are amazing. Sometimes you forget the difference they make in the middle of the flight... then just turn them off for a second and you'll be reminded how huge the difference is to fly with and without them. I didn't want to carry around the large over or on ear ones, so I got these; they seem to be just as good in reducing noise and they are comfortable. And so easy to carry. Highly recommended.

    I was looking for earbuds with noise cancelling [for work, gym, and on airplane] and I did not want the over the ear large headphones. These earbuds are amazing and work too well. On the airplane I purposely set by the engines and could not hear anything but the music.

    I was going on a l8ng flight and didn't want to bring my bulky over the ear headphones. I've always wanted Bose headphones with the business. I decided to splurge and get these noise canceling ones. OMG! I was thoroughlyimpressed by the sound quality AND the noise cancelling feature really drowned out the constant nearby concersations and the engine noise. I'm soooooo happy I finally splurged on these. I have no regrets!

    silence at a price

    Posted .

    These came highly recommended, so I knew I was going to love these headphones, but I had no idea how INCREDIBLE the noise canceling feature is. I have issues with tinitis (noise in my ears) and it even cancels out most of that as well as the noise in the airplane. I also did not believe they would STAY on my ears...they do, and are comfortable. I bought my husband a pair too! Color me happy. :)

    Don't let the size fool you

    Replaced my QC15 with these. These QC20's are GREAT!! Having such a great run with my QC15's, I decided to purchase these only due to the size and my desire to carry a smaller carry-on thanks to my dear airline friends..... My QC15's are still rocking after 5+ years, and I am not letting them go. I am using these QC20's on planes all of the time, and cannot tell the noise cancelling difference between these and the QC15's. Highly recommend, you will not be sorry.

    Best earbuds

    Posted .

    Having owned a bunch of different earbuds, this new generation of Bose noise cancelation earbuds are the best. Comfortable and compact. As far as sound reproduction quality, not as good as the over-the-ear headphones, but for that long plane ride, you just can't beat these!

    Bought to use for a long flight

    Thought I wanted the Bose headphones but our local Best Buy was out of them. I bought these because I was assured I could return them if I didn't want them. We drove home from the store in a thunderstorm and I decided to see how they felt -- I was immediately amazed by how much irritating unnecessary loud sound was eliminated. On the trip they cut out so much of the extraneous noise on a plane that I arrived feeling much less exhausted than usual. By the way, I'm female and usually earplugs/headphones bother me. These have worked out really well and I suspect I'll have to hide them from my college student!

    I was truly amazed and very satisfied with this product from the moment I turned it on during my recent trip. It cancelled all extraneous noises and gave me excellent audio quality that I desire when watching a movie or listening to music with headphones. Using this item is more convenient then packing my larger pair and I still get the same sound quality even for its size. For me, the item was worth its price.
