    Incredible sound, but a lot of leakage

    • Written by from Chicago

    The quality of sound on these is like no other headphone that I've ever tried. The base isn't overly disturbing (as on beats). They quality of materials is also excellent, fairly sturdy but still flexible enough. My one and only problem is the huge amount of sound leakage that occurs when I play music. I know this because sometimes I let other members of my family use them and I can hear the music almost as well as them sometimes. But otherwise, I love them!

    I also bought the B&W P5 which have better sound than the QC15, but had to return them due to being so uncomfortable.

    Superb Performance but Bulky

    • Written by from HOUSTON

    These headphones do a remarkable job of diminishing background noise, and their audio fidelity is excellent. My only complaints are that they are so big that carrying them in my messenger bag is a struggle and that it uses a battery that must be replaced after about 34 hours of use. Why not have a discreetly hidden charging port and use a rechargeable, built-in battery? Maybe the 16 will do that.

    Note that when you have the headphones on and are not listening to music, there is a high-pitched buzz that can be annoying. The volume of the buzz is very low, and the frequency of the pitch is so high that many won't hear it--but it is there.

    Great BUT (No control for iPhone with Bose dedicated cable.

    • Written by from OSHAWA

    I have these headphones and they are great BUT, they don't breath well so your ears will sweat a lot if you wear them for to long.

    Also I purchased Bose iPhone cable thinking for $50 it would give me the same control the Apple $39 headphones did but all they have is a microphone no control at all.

    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.
