Excerpt: At £260, these cans really have to work for their place in your ears, but the good news is they deliver and then some. The Bose QuietComfort 20i provide a solid 16 hour battery life, as well as active noise cancellation.
Summary: Hi everyone,
I spend so many hours reading your reviews that when I saw there wasn't any for the Bose QuietComfort 20i NC, I decided to write my first review ever.
So please be kind with me, I'm not a pro (and not a native neither) ;-)
You have to know...
...I'm not a huge fan of Bose products.
Summary: So I bought these because I wanted to sleep and I can't sleep with over ear headphones on a window seat since the moment you put pressure on the bands, it goes haywire(the noise cancellation).
These solved that issue.
However, I can only keep them in for 2-3 hours before my ears hurt.
Pros: Best noise cancellation out there to be honest...
Summary: Please disregard the sliders on the left hand side, as they are broken.
I purchased this product and am therefore not so easily oblivious to the effects of buyer’s remorse potentially inflicted upon me, unlike those who received free review units and are more liable to completely...
Pros: Comfort, noise cancellation, very good sound quality in spite of noise cancellation, aware mode (surprisingly not a complete gimmick), durable cable
Cons: Sound quality not the best in class for price (understandably so), clunky battery pack, not a fan of the color scheme, cable memory (trade-off)
Summary: Long-Term Usage Update July 2015
After using the headphone for 3 months i need to do a revision of my original rating, and ameliorate my rating from 2.5 stars to 4 stars. I am coming to the conclusion that due to their extremely good noise cancellation these are the best day-to-day in-ears I owned...
Pros: Build quality is very good and NC works fine.
Summary: While the over-the-ear and on-ear noise canceling headphones are fairly common, and popular, the in-canal variety are rare. This is mostly because there haven't been too many of such earphones till now. The Bose QC20i is a rather neat option for you, if this is what you had been waiting for.
Pros: Excellent noise cancellation, In-line battery & circuit compartment is fairly sleek, Adequate bass response, Vocals are handled well, Comfortable tips suit long listening sessions
Conclusion: . Three hundred bucks is a lot to spend on earbuds, but for frequent fliers or anyone who spends time in noisy environments, how much is too much to be able to turn off the outside world for a while and get lost in your favorite songs?
Pros: Excellent noise-canceling. Aware Mode lets you hear some outside sounds at the touch of a button. Comfortable to wear. Can be used without power.
Cons: Noise-cancelation can bother some sensitive users.
Summary: At £260, these cans really have to work for their place in your ears, but the good news is they deliver and then some. The Bose QuietComfort 20i provide a solid 16 hour battery life, as well as active noise cancellation.
