    Great, But!

    • Written by from Warwick

    These headphone produce good sound and have an excellent noise cancelling effect. I do not fly anymore without noise cancelling headphones. The first pair I bought where the first made by Bose, I loved them but after some time the black fabric covering that goes around the ear started flaking off into tiny bits. These bits got on everything and in my ears. I had to stop using them. Bose made some updates to these and I decided to give them another try and got another pair. The same thing happened. I will not give Bose a third chance.

    Outstanding sound, quality and comfort!

    • Written by from Orange

    My husband and I both did a LOT of research on all the comparable brands and, although many were OK, none came near the quality and comfort of BOSE. We all HATE the high price, but you DO get what you pay for with BOSE. These are excellent in all respects and the case provided is really excellent for protecting your investment. I am small, 5'1" and was skeptical they would fit or be comfortable, but they are adjustable and beyond comfortable. Definitely worth the money and there are just not enough words to describe the BOSE sound quality!!!!!!!!!!!! My advice is to try their various styles for fit and comfort BEFORE deciding. There are differences.

    Comfort + Quality

    • Written by from Muncie

    These do just what they say they do and have excellent sound quality for me compared to other acoustic noise canceling headphone claim to offer. Great product, thoroughly enjoy using them as I work listening to music. Extremely comfortable and I'm able to wear them for hours without irritation while I work!

    Please..... hands down best sounding crisp headphones! I have the Bose aviation headset and those being 1000.00 these have the same qulity and sound as good also the noise canceling is amazing... no fuzzz... when the battery dies so does the music but who cares with the qulity of sound throw an extra battery in the case. you cant go wrong with this choice. There not crazy bass but just clear sound. so if your looking for bass distorted sound dont go with the Bose. (We all know who had the "bassheavy" sound and there the other brand that starts with a B.

    Ears Block

    • Written by from Thousand Oaks

    My ears block whenever I put on these headsets, worse than high altitude. Very large headset, falls backwards. I have a fairly small head, Bose headphones always seem to fall off.

    Soul of sound lost

    • Written by from 港区

    This headphone destroys the soul of audio, i.e. alters it considerably beyond the point I could enjoy. Drums do not sound like drum, piano does not sound like piano, violin treble sound sadly dull. I do not know what they do with DSP (digital signal processing) but in effect, the music does not sound as it should be.Although I am not an audiophile, sound difference between Bose QC15 and either PSB M4U2 Noise cancelling headphones or AKG K550 closed back headphones. PSB and AKG do a great job in replicating the sound from the instrument accurately.

    Besides, for the price, the build quality is abysmal. I could not find any other headphones except cheap sub $10 Chinese ones that badly made. The cable is so thin, which made me worry how long they would last, had I kept them.

    Purely speaking of noise cancelling aspect, it did and good job. Still, I could hear some white noise when there is no music is playing. It was comfortable to wear, but like other around the ear headphones, I sweat a bit from ears, when wearing for long time.

    I should also note a friend of mine who also tested the same copy of headphone felt the white noise a bit creepy and felt uncomfortable with the air pressure change when putting on the headphones.

    Although I found the noise cancelling and comfort good, it failed in it's primary function, sound quality.

    Thanks to the good return policy, I could return the product and get the refund. For anyone who wants to give a try for this headphone, I recommend to buy with 30 day money back guarantee.

    Work Great!

    • Written by from Hoover

    I use these headphones all the time to block out noise on car rides and while studying. These headphones work great and I would recommend them to anyone. These headphones may not be the sexiest headphones on the market, but they are supremely comfortable and they do not hurt my ears after 5 hour car rides to the beach. The best way to describe the headphones is that when you take them off it sounds like your'e in a hurricane. Buy these headphones, you wont regret it!

    Bought Bose Quiet.. In early 2011, use 2-3 hours daily, they work great.

    • Written by from surrey

    Bought Bose Quiet.. In early 2011, use 2-3 hours daily, while I commute on the skytrain.. they work great. Rechargeable batteries last for a week - two weeks.

    Skytrain noise is tuned out so I hear detail of U2s Bass Trapp.
    I also fly a lot. Love them. Original Cords are still working. I will buy them again if they ever break.

    They do not last.

    • Written by from Fresno

    I'm on my third set - the leather around the ear pad separates and the battery compartment latch is frail and will break with substantial use.

    I will no longer by Bose products due to poor manufacturing.

    Best headphones I've listened to!

    • Written by from Tigard

    The Bose QC15 not only block out most unwanted noise, but they have superb audio reproduction. They are a far cry from ear buds even the $100+ ones. Each note of the music is distinct. They also deliver good bass, but they are not ear thumpers. They can't be beat for fidelity of music in a sound blocking headphone. I would highly recommend that you try a pair with Bose's 30 day money back policy.

    Best Headphones for travel HANDS DOWN!

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    These are the best headphones by far on the market. I do alot of traveling and having a great pair of headphones when constantly in the air is heaven. Most of todays kids and teenagers love Beats for music, but if you truly want to HEAR your music i highly recommend Bose. I have used Bose products for year and I will swear by them. THEY ARE AWESOME!

    Great Sound

    • Written by from SAINT JAMES

    Amazing sound! It comes in very clear sound. You hear every note perfect. I so recommend getting these if you care about sound quality. The only brand these can even compare to is Dr. Dre Beats. Both are amazing but definitely get Bose and these especially.

    Sweet Baby Jesus I LOVE these headphones

    • Written by from Austin

    I just got these for a birthday present and they are the most amazing headphones I've ever had. At the moment, I am sitting in a coffee shop next to two LOUD and annoying women. All I had to do it put on these headphones and start rocking out to my music. I see their mouths moving but hear nothing and my music isn't loud at all so I don't have to blast music in my ears to drown out the sound of these women gabbing away like I have to do with normal headphones. This is pure heaven, it is seriously worth it to spend the money on a nice pair of headphones. As a bonus, they come with a really nice semi-hard shell black case with a zipper around it, so you can protect them in your bag. The noise cancellation is crazy amazing. I LOVE these headphones- well done Bose.

    Noise Cancelling Always On; No Audio Without Battery

    • Written by from Saint-Hubert

    This is one really comfortable headphone but they come with a few drawbacks that really break the experience for me. If you don't have a charged battery your headphones are just dead weight. You cannot turn off the noise cancelling. It's either on or you can't hear anything at all. It's a shame really.

    Most excellent headphones ever

    • Written by from Honeyville

    Having been in the military for 26 years and travelling around the world many times, I have tried numerous sets of earphones, earbuds, and headphones. The Bose QC-15 are by far the best I have ever tried. Sound quality is far superior to anything else out there, even the BEATS. Noise cancellation is excellent, even on the noisy cargo aircraft including the C-130. These headphones are the best, bar none! Yes a little pricy but well worth the cost!
