Summary: I purchased these about 2 years ago and use them on flights...about 7 or 8 times. The Bose Quiet Comforts stopped working....and replaced the battery to no avail. Not sure Bose is putting out quality products anymore.
Summary: These are an older model of the current headphones but can be gotten at an amazing Costco price. They have family adequate sound reproduction, but the real shining glory of these headphones is the noise cancelling. Look up any noise cancelling headphones and these will ALWAYS come out on top.
Pros: best noise cancelling of all headphones very comfortable earpads tolerable sound reproduction a must for travellers
Cons: substandard but 'ok' sound severely overpriced for such cheap headpones low quality construction using cheap materials older model
Summary: These headphones sound great but I will have to take them back tomorrow because they will not work without battery power. For the price you pay they should be bluetooth and/or able to work without battery power.
Summary: Best noise cancelling headphones on the market today. Sure it may not operate without a AAA battery but seriously the battery lasts for ever and one additional AAA battery takes up how much space in the case?
Pros: adept at noise cancelling value worth the investment your friends will thank you for the recomendation
Summary: These headphones have excellent noise cancelling and sound quality, but are poorly designed. The thin wire that goes from one end of the battery contact is attached to the door that must be opened to insert a new battery and the bending of the wire when opening and closing that door can break the...
Pros: excellent noise cancelling quality and sound comfortable good looking
Cons: will not function as a headset without power. poor design and/or materials can kill headset. out of warrenty repairs not offered by bose. expensive.
