Summary: These headphones are the real deal. Bought for me as a present for a milestone birthday.Thank you. As with most, if not all Bose products, they are quality through and through.The sound is something else.You can shut away any other noise and just listen to the music. The build quality is first class and I can see myself using these headphones for many a day.Ok not the cheapest, but, amongst the best. Recommended.
Summary: Not really much to say other than it's a brilliant set of headphones. I use them all the time for my mobile phone calls, and to listen to music, or even when I need a bit of quiet to concentrate in my open plan office.
Summary: I bought these to help me concentrate in a noisy office as needed. They work like a charm. They do not cut out the human voice completely but they are effective enough to make a difference. They are also light and comfortable. When I take them home they are very competent musically when hooked up to an MP3 player. I have bought a number of different brands of headphones over the years but Bose are the only make that does it for me.
Summary: In order for you to hear the music clear with other devices you were forced to higher the volume. With this Bose, by cutting the external noise, it allows you to listen to the music at low volume. And the experience is complete. Now it is no longer the case, thus protecting the internal ear from damages caused by long exposure to high noises. It is pricy but it worth it. At least for somebody that works at a desk for a long period of time.
Summary: I often travel on planes and these headphones are the perfect accessory for me. As soon as you switch the on button, any engine sound is drowned out. I often don't listen to any music and just hit the on button! That's how good these are blocking sound. In terms of sound quality, you can expect the usual excellent result from Bose. These are way ahead of the game when you compare them other makes such as Beats. Bose all day!
Summary: I bought these hoping they would help me work (I'm a computer programmer) in a crowded office full of noisy extroverts. They block out noises such as computer fans, traffic and air conditioning almost completely, even without music playing. They substantially reduce the distraction caused by talking, shouting, coughing, sneezing, etc., although without music they do not completely block these sounds.
Excerpt: I have been using these headphones for almost a year now, and I'm truly satisfied. They are incredibly comfortable and you can put them for hours without hurting your ears or head. They dont look as fashioned as the Beats does, but I dont mind and in fact I like the QuietComfort better. The noise cancelling works great when in need. I can confirm that its a great experience when riding the bus, as someone who takes the bus a lot.
Pros: comfortable, great sounding and balance, great noise cancelling
Cons: you need batteries for them to work, a bit expensive although you can find a good price on ebay .
Summary: I bought the replacement headphone pads from Bose via Amazon. Expensive but quality is up to scratch. Delivery was earlier than expected. I am very pleased with quality and comfort. Fitting was a simple task and set up phones for more years of use.
