    This headphones are incredibly comfortable. They sound quality is absolutely outstanding. I've compared them with many other brands and this are hands down the best ones. The two specifics I can give about that are the following:
    -This headphone made me re-discover my music, making me want to re-listen to all of it.
    -I never realize how much awful noise there really is on a flight. THIS headphones get rid of all of it.
    100% worth every cent.

    Good but fragile

    • Written by from Mumbai

    These are a really great pair of headphones with airtight noise cancelation and AMAZING sound. They are very comfortable and light. BUT they are vey fragile and snap easily and the leather tends to peal of if you live in a seaside city or a humid place. All-in-all, its a great pair of headphones.

    Great headphones, worth every penny!!

    • Written by from Tuscaloosa

    The Bose QuietComfort's are a really great choice for a typical music lover. I bought a pair around a month or two ago and they are awesome. They have a rich and bold sound and the noise canceling system works flawlessly!! Great buy!!

    Amazing Sound Quality!!!

    • Written by from Ada

    I recently wanted to get a good pair of noise canceling/reducing headphones for my job which can get loud. I tried out a few but these were for sure the best. They have great noise reduction, when not playing music you can still here a little, but as long as you are playing music your surroundings are silent. The sound quality is also amazing, compared to several pairs of headphones I found that these were the best. These make me want to listen to music all day long, and listen to every song again! These are amazing and I suggest these to everyone.

    broken less than one year

    • Written by from Washington

    For 300 dollars you would think they would last for more than a year.

    These were my favorite headphones. They are comfortable and the sound quality is fantastic. BUT they are useless when the sounds stops out of one side...

    cheap materials will cost you for years...buy sennheiser, klipsch, or polk

    • Written by from malvern

    I bought Sennheiser PXC 450 after years of replacing parts on the Bose. Bose materials are as cheap as you can find on any sound canceling headphones. For such a premium price you'd think they could provide a cord better than a $19.95 pair of cheap headphones. Don't waste your money.

    Noise Cancelling Heaven

    • Written by from Miami

    I own a pair of MDR-NC60 and they seemed fine by my standards, used them for years and was always pretty ok with them....until an in-flight aquaintance lent me his QC15s, It was a pretty long flight so I toyed with them a lot. Result: Bought myself a pair on the duty free shop between connecting flights.
    They cover what to me is most important in this kind of product: Light, Comfortable to the extreme and sound great (or don't make any sound at all for that matter).
    I have now used them in-flight, at home, at the office, commuting and they have excelled in every way.
    Battery life is +- as promised (some 30+hours) and that's about a weeks worth of juice for my particular use, and that is just fine.
    Comfort is superb, 7 straight hours is my longest, but I was nowhere near my limit of comfort, so I rate them very well.
    Sound / Noise Cancelling is awesome, they sound beautifully. Just a tweak on the equalizer as bass tend to be a little deep, but that's about it. NC qualities are magnificent, and really makes you forget the world around you.
    Cord has iPhone controls (and a separate regular cord also included) so that is a nice plus.
    Comes in a nice hard case, which is not bulky at all, so no problem making it a permanent part of your carry-on.
    Just 2 things I don't like:
    They won't work at all unless ON, so no battery power= no music, no headset.
    They don't seem to have a "monitor" button to quickly check the world, so if someone talks to you, you have to take them off.
    Nothing serious, but my previous pair had them, so Im used to them I guess.

    My neighbors are not dead...

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    ... because of these. They tend to be loud and I work from home and the noise canceling keeps at bay even the loudest rap bass.

    Nobody gets shot. :D

    And the music sounds a w e s o m e , too. I'm nearly deaf in one ear and really appreciate high quality sound.

    Conference calls are seamless.

    Incredible product, worth every penny.

    • Written by from Liskeard

    I was fortunate enough to be in the USA when I first listened to and subsequently bought these headphones (which saved me ~£100!). Easily one of the best accessories I've ever bought for any device. The sound is crisp, with amazing treble and, especially when I turn up the bass, great depth and clarity. As well as this, the noise-reduction is astounding. In any environment, they will complete isolate external noise, leaving you to enjoy the music. Finally, they are supremely comfortable to wear, even for extended journeys of 4-5 hours. Amazing product.

    Literally the best headphones on the market. Hands down.

    • Written by from NORTH BETHESDA

    I've had mine for over a year now. I use them religiously.

    I've traveled around the world, studied at the library, relaxed at home, and slept with these on. By far the best headphones money can buy. The price is 100% justified. They are worth every penny if not more. However, these are worth it considering you know you'll be getting exceptional customer service from Bose along with the headphones.

    I highly recommend these.

    This is my first Bose product.

    I listened to other headphones that were in the QC15s price range, I'm no audiophile, but these sounded better by leaps and bounds over all the offerings from Monster, and others found at the Apple store.

    The bass is just right. The bass will rock your ear drums, but it still does it in a clean and tight fashion. The highs are crisp and clear, I hear music totally different now.

    My favorite part is the noise cancellation. Whatever it is that they've figured out to cancel the noise around you, the QC15s do it amazingly. On long road trips(when I'm not the driver) one of our cars has an out of round tire that produces the most awful resonating drone, and as soon as you flip the switch, silence. It's absolutely incredible...These are by far my favorite gadget that I own. I love the style, they're not too big, and the rings around your ears are super soft, and comfortable.

    I highly recommend buying these headphones, but the best thing you can do is simply go to a retailer and put them on, and try them out yourself. I think though, you'll like these.

    Amazing - Highly Recommended!

    • Written by from Isleworth

    I was originally a bit skeptical about wether to spend £300 on a pair of headphones, but after testing these at the Apple store I can honestly say that you really do get what you pay for. Once you put on the headphones (even without music playing) all the surrounding sound just disappears so you can fully focus on the music you are playing. Amazing quality, and they are very comfortable on the ears.

    I would highly recommend these to anyone

    Very good

    • Written by

    I was reading about this Headphones since a few months ago and some people said that its not so good for the street but they are perfect, I mean, they obviously won't erase the exterior sound, but the name is very clear "Acustic Noise Cancelling" they Cancell just the extreme Noise, no the entire sound, I think they Worth every penny and i am so happy because finally i had it.

    Most epic sound

    • Written by from Duesseldorf

    I just put these headphones on after buying them at the apple store and i must say that these headphones produce one of the best sound experiences that I have ever listened too. The music is clear and you hear nearly nothing of the outside world. they may not look as nice as beats or other promo headphones but they definitely sound 10x better. one of the best things is probably the noise canceling. as i already mentioned it is incredible. also many people say that these headphones do not deliver an adequate amount of bass. However the bass is great and you can always change the equalizers. Althought I did not test the mic or remote yet I am convinced they will be great So for all you people out there headphones like beats or soul by ludacris or any other celebrity endorsed headphones may look nice and be popular but for the price tag on them (which is often just the same as these) you will be more satisfied getting these headphones. There is one downside however and that is that you can not use these headphones without one AAA battery as they will not work in passive mode this is not a problem though because all you need too two is carry one or two extras with you in the carrying case (also a great extra) and you'll be fine as the battery will last c. 35 hours. Oh and one more thing, (yeah thats a steve jobs quote) they also come with an airplane adapter which is very practical. so to round this review of these headphones are great and are really worth the 300 dollars they also offer better performance that the beats so buy them if you're thinking about getting new headphones.

    My cubicle is my sanctuary

    • Written by from Overland Park

    I work in a cube farm surrounded by drama queens . . . . I bought these in a last ditch effort to preserve my sanity. They do get a little warm and I wish they came in a neck wrap style but I do love them.

    The noise cancelling works well and when you turn on the music, you can set the volume lower. Hence, I'm preserving both my hearing and my sanity.

    Simply amazing!

    • Written by from Duluth

    I bought these Bose QC 15's for myself, to get some decent sound quality and awesome noise canceling. The sound quality was much better than I expected!
    If you turn on the headphones, it eliminates 50% of the background noise. Once you turn your music with about 50% volume, it eliminates 95% of the background noise. Once the music is turned up 80% volume and up, 99.9% of the noise is blocked. Just simply amazing!

    These are perfect for flying! You can't hear any engine or cabin noise, they're comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and the carry case is very sleek and convenient. These are the best headphones I have ever owned or used! I highly recommend buying them!!!

    Works amazing for traveling

    • Written by from Stockholm

    Just bought these headphones last week and had a 6 hour flight home the same day. After having heard only good things about from my uncle, I had to get a pair! Not believing that they would cancel the noise from the plane's engine, I was totally amazed when I started the noise canceling and by the time I put on the music, all of the noise from the engines was gone!

    Even my fiance, who was against the purchase from the beginning, was amazed and did not want to let me have them back after having tried them on!
