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.
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: Why I ever considered buying this? My office is now noisier than before, so I don’t want to crank up the volume too much with my closed phones. My office phone is now AKG K271s. While I like its balanced sound, the overall comfort is not ideal.
I demoed the QC15 at Bestbuy.
Pros: Superior active noise canceling ability, light and comfortable
Cons: filmsy cable, only play music with noise canceling on.
Summary: I purchased these because my Sennheiser PXC450 were getting too big to carry around once I purchased a larger netbook. So this review is more a comparison of it and the QC15.
The striking difference is the size - the PXC450 are just massive.
Excerpt: When it comes to headphones with active noise cancellation, Bose is probably the most well known player on the block. The QC15s – QC stands for quiet comfort – are lightweight and comfortable. They come with a slim case that should fit into most laptop bags.
Summary: Wer den Bose QuietComfort 15 ausprobiert hat, wird ihn wohl nie wieder hergeben wollen. Zu überzeugend ist seine effektive Lärmunterdrückung, die zu Hause und vor allem auf Reisen für entspanntes Musikhören sorgt.
Conclusion: De actieve noisecancelling van de Bose QC15 werkt zoals het moet. Je hebt nauwelijks nog last van omgevingsgeluiden. Een nadeel is dat de hoofdtelefoon niet zonder noise cancelling, of AAA-batterij te gebruiken is. Daarnaast is het snoer wat aan de korte kant.
Pros: Noise cancelling, Draagcomfort
Cons: Werkt niet zonder batterij, Lengte snoer, Prijs
