Excerpt: I haven't used the Quiet Comfort Bose but these did block out right much outside noise during airline travel. The quality is very good. In addition, if using one of the Apple i____ products, the controls allowed through the in-line microphone are an excellent feature.
Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Excerpt: These Bose headphones were a bargain at staples with the $30 off the regular price. Bose is number one in sound quality as far as I'm concern. Tried other brands and although some were very good you can definitely hear the difference with Bose. The fit around the ear is comfortable and not heavy or tight. Although these were not the noise cancelling they are very good at keeping out the background noise.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
Summary: Been ordering from Crutchfield for almost 20 years and I don't have anything but positive things to say about them. Saw the headphones went on sale and Crutchfield gladly refunded me the difference (60 days to do so). Class act as always.
Summary: For the price, great quality all around. Light weight, easy to adjust, VERY easy to wear even for long periods. Lots of noise reduction, although this is not advertised as a feature of these lower priced Bose. Other headphones in this price range can't compete. The $30 extra for the volume and other controls definitely worth having. Detachable cord handy but I did lose mine and had to buy a replacement (my bad).
