Audio gadgets: the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones
24 July 2012
Excerpt: : The Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones (about $299 on Amazon ) have tiny microphones mounted on the outside of each ear cup. Sophisticated mini-computers constantly monitor ambient noises and produce an equal and opposite noise into the ear cups to cancel them out.
Excerpt: I’ve been looking at getting these headphones for a really long time, and I had made up my mind on my last flight to CA that I would get the Bose QuietComfort 15 Headphones before I fly again. I’m sitting on an airplane right now with these things on and they are simply incredible.
Summary: I received the Bose QC 15 in the mail today. My previous ordered was canceled by the retailer for some reason. I went back to re-order and the price was marked down to $229 shipped. Probably a Black Friday deal or something.
Summary: Just a quick note about these. My point of comparison for Audio Quality is Senn HD650 / LCD3 / Grado 325is / ATH-M50.
Comfort - Amazing. Gets slightly warm after really long listening sessions, but they mostly rise to that level where you forget you have them on. The cups are like pillows.
Pros: Great noise cancelling with *good* sound, works extremely well out of an ipod
Summary: When I go to a busy restaurant during lunch with my headphones, I feel like I'm by myself with the QC 15's. They work fine with your iPhone but if you get an Amp, you can change the setting on the headphone jack to Lo.
Pros: The Noise Isolation is Like No Other
Cons: Some say the sounds isn't that great. I think it's good/great
Summary: Alright so this is my first review, but ill try to just lay down the facts and keep it simple. These headphones do an amazing job of taking all outside noise away. just flipping the switch on them even without music playing, makes you feel like you entered a vacuum where all sound disappears.
Pros: Noise Cancelling, Comfortable, long term wear comfort
Cons: unusably long cord, music quality is nothing special.
