The sound is great and the noise cancelling amazing, easily comparable to any over ear competitor if not better. Love and use them everyday.

The sound I haven't had these that long, but I have to say my first impressions are that they are absolutely amazing headphones! The sound quality is unlike anything I have ever heard out of a set of in-ear headphones. I purchased these as replacements for what I was using because I wanted better sound quality, a snugger fit, comfort, and of course the noise cancelling ability. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the noise cancelling feature worked, but even without it turned on, the QC20i's still provide the wearer an auditory experience worth the cost. The sound produced by these headphones is out of this world! There is plenty of deep, rich bass when there needs to be, but also crystal clear mid and high notes. My only complaint is that I didn't purchase these sooner.

    I have the QC-15s and the only reason I had not used them more regularly is simple- bulk. With the 20i you have a package that lit I have the QC-15s and the only reason I had not used them more regularly is simple- bulk. With the 20i you have a package that literally will go with you anywhere and performance that is 95% of what the 15's provide. No question the price is also top of the line. However, in this case, it is completely worth it.

    These are fantastic noise canceling in ear headphones. I fly a lot for work and it drowns out the drone noise of the jet engines. These are fantastic noise canceling in ear headphones.

    Like others I was concerned over cost and to a point which I valued more music quality or noise cancellation . As this was my firs Like others I was concerned over cost and to a point which I valued more music quality or noise cancellation . As this was my first dip into earphones and because I was on holiday and had time on my hand I did some research and shopped around in Florida to see which suited me more. My final decision was the qc 20i. After purchasing and charging I did a 8 hour drive from Daytona to Tampa and back . I had the windows down and the 20i connected to my IPhone where I had downloaded some music to.
    The drive was a dream , earphones had cancelled out all road noise you could however still hear if someone blew their car horn so safety was not affected. If you received a call while playing music the volume would reduce automatically so that you would only hear the ringing of your phone .if you decide to accept the call just press the button on the lead. Once the call has ended the music will automatically come back on.
    I then had an 8 hour flight and again the background noise was canceled but to a lesser degree. Battery life was more then adequate.
    Overall I prefer to use mine on motorways . On long drives through country roads. Excellent and very happy with my purchase.

  • Awesome sound but some functionality and compatibility issues

    While Bose is at the top of the chart for noise cancelling technology, I couldn't give these headphones 5 stars for the following While Bose is at the top of the chart for noise cancelling technology, I couldn't give these headphones 5 stars for the following reasons.

    1. When the battery runs out, the sound keeps going (Bonus over QC15) however sound quality is seriously degraded. Not so bad considering the battery life but if you are on a long or double flight, you better hope for USB on the plane or bring a usb battery.
    2. The short 90 degree jack is a bit difficult to unplug to the point of needing to dig fingernails into the rubber to pry it off
    3. Not compatible with smart case (at least not with iPad mini smart case) - the hole is just a bit too small for the jack. Apple doesn't appear to offer any official extension that supports the microphone / volume function either making it tough to combine the iPad with excellent protection from the smart case AND these amazing earphones
    4. The battery pack can be a in the way, especially if you want to tuck your device into a pocket or even walk with it as it tends to dangle and since the jack is at a 90 degree angle, it will pull on it slightly - recommend folding it up against the back of the device perhaps but then you'll find it tricky to take it out say if you had it in your pocket.

    So sound quality and noise cancelling - top notch. Execution / functionality unfortunately needs some work. The fact that it is not compatible with the smart case is simply silly especially in an airplane when you want the stand functionality as well as the noise cancelling.
