  • 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. I tend to find them expensive and not great sounding at all, with fake and disturbing bass and really unpredictable highs.     Comfort I never liked in ear headphones.
  • Pros: Comfort
  • Cons: Low sound quality ; noisy noise canceling mode

Clearly overpriced

Javier E, Apple Store

  • Summary: I bought these after reading all the positive reviews. However, after trying them for several hours, I took them back to the store. I really don't like that ear plug feeling, and the noise quality is not what you would expect for this price.

Darren W, Apple

  • Summary: I love Bose, Bose create some of the best sounds from all types of media, but for me the In-ears have always ben trouble, i've had almost 4 replacement sets on Bose In-ears and opted out on the last pair... however after much thought making i decided to return to the sound i love and make the big purchase of the Quietcomforts... basically the sound is there.... but just so low...

Noise reduction not noise cancelling

janet shaw, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: The headphones are disappointing because they reduce but do not cancel noise. I travel a lot by train. The background rumbling is significantly reduced but it is still possible to hear other passengers talking nearby quite clearly. I wouldn't have paid this price for headphones if they had been advertised according to their actual performance.

sony noise cancellings are better

Paul, JB Hi-Fi

  • Excerpt: All said and done though, once you have managed to jam them into your ears and make them stay there, the sound is amazing, and the noise cancelling ability even more so. I still think for a saving of $300, the Sony's do the job almost as well for 1/4 the price. They are certainly less bulky and fit almost anyone better. You can then use your $300 saving to buy all the AAA batteries to last you a lifetime.

Sony noise cancelling are better

Paul, JB Hi-Fi
4 November 2013
  • Excerpt: For their price they are extremely overrated. They remind me of typical, big, fat, American overpriced rubbish. Anyone who raves on about them obviously hasn't tried any other noise cancelling earphones. To start with, you pay the better half of $400 for a giant plastic box with buttons that feel rubbish, a lead that is 4cm long, and some earphones. Thats it. You dont even get an aircraft adaptor.

Schade, Bose

cokefridge, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: Nach einer zufriedenstellenden Leistung der Bose QC15 und einem enttäuschenden Erlebnis mit den Bose SIE2i dazu durchringen müssen, den InEars mit aktivem NC auch eine Chance zu geben. Leider war weder das Noise-Cancelling der Kopfhörer wirklich hilfreich, noch der Klang der Kopfhörer an sich. Selbst mit Kopfhörerverstärker waren mir diese Kopfhörer deutlich zu leise und klanglich unspektakulär.Verschiedene Aufsätze brachten keine Verbesserung.

  • Excerpt: Наушники плотно прилегают и гасят 95% окружающего звука из того что гасится, еще 5% гасится включением функции активного шумоподавления , при том что все равно, я продолжаю слышать окружающий шум, даже не очень сильный.

Leider enttäuschend - lautes Grundrauschen

Holger, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Ich schicke den Kopfhörer wieder zurück: Sehr lautes Grundrauschen im aktiven Modus, für jemanden mit durchschnittlichem Hi-Fi Anspruch inakzeptabel. Zumal der passive Modus keine verwertbare Alternative bietet. Die ANC ist im Flieger mit konstantem Grundlärm gut, filtert aber inkonstante Geräusche wie Gespräche, Arbeitsgeräusche nur sehr gering. Jedes Reiben oder Anschlagen der Kopfhörerkabel kommt laut im Ohr an, so still kann man kaum sitzen, dass das nicht stört.

Gute Kopfhörer, aber schlecht verarbeitet

Daniela Pohl, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Die Noise Cancellation Funktion ist wirklich gut, allerdings sind die Kopfhörer nach 1 Woche kaputt gegangen. Der Klinkenstecker ist gleich in einer Buchse hängen geblieben. Schlechte Verarbeitung!
