Summary: I got this because there were many positive reviews for this headphone. Especially regarding noise cancellation. I tried it at the store and it felt good for those couple of seconds. When I actually got my pair, I really feel that it's overrated. It's not that comfortable because my ear can feel the pressure, it's the feeling of an ear plug. I really don't like that ear plug feeling. In a quiet room with air ventilation, it is possible to hear this dull weird hiss.
Summary: I wanted a really good set of in ear phones with noise cancelling and thought BOSE would be the ones. The noise cancelling is very very good, the sound quality was a major disappointment. I have a pair of Philips in ear surround sound phones which were only £15 but they have a much better sound quality! The only advantage they have is the noise cancelling but is that worth the £250 price tag?
Summary: Sound quality is very good, and the noise reduction is pretty good, but not worth £260 as it's not a big enough step up over some cheaper units - definitely paying more for the Bose name. I also had an issue with the StayHear+ tips - the medium were a little too small, and the large a little too big - both were fine if sat still, but unusable when walking along as they would quickly work their way loose.
It is a good product, but i was expecting something more

Summary: The product is good and the sound is amazing. Although considering the price, i was expecting to do not hear anything, as i was alone in everyplace. It is not reallyu like this but the sound is superior.
Summary: I purchased Bose Triports a long time ago and was fairly impressed with the sound quality at that price point but the main problem was that the didn't last very long at all. The wire at the headphone jack did not stand up to regular use and it was not long before the product was rendered useless. The bass response was good and I felt they were well suited to practically all kinds of genre so I thought I should try another Bose product, hopefully something sturdier.
Summary: The BOSE QuietComfort 20i earphones are due out next month, and so far, have created a buzz amongst the headphone industry. Why is there such a commotion? Because they are the first in-ear headphones with noise cancelling technology. Open the box, and you'll find your headphones, 3 fittings (small, medium and large), a registration card, and a carry wallet to put them in. There is also a mini-USB to large USB for recharging.
