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. Personally, after a couple of minutes I don't feel the "pressure". They are probably my most comfortable headphones...
Pros: Great noise cancelling with *good* sound, works extremely well out of an ipod
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. The QC15 on the other hand have cups that just fit around the ears, and are lighter. The sound quality on both are excellent, but my personal opinion is the QC15 produce a much more natural sound.
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. The noise canceling is better than others (tip: just wait till the demo music stop), and most importantly, it is very comfortable. So, I wonder if Bose QC15 can serve in my office setting.
Pros: Superior active noise canceling ability, light and comfortable
Cons: filmsy cable, only play music with noise canceling on.
Summary: A nice headphone with consumer average quality of sound(not headfi average). The noise cancellation is too good to be true, but it is true! haha. cant here anythin with music on. It's pricy and i had a problem when doors were closed in a car i was in and the noise cancellation glitched, also happened when i jumped up one time, or if it gets hit by somethin. Other than that it was a it was alrite buy for easy listening and even some pop, rap, and dubstep/electronic music.
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. Then, you can crank the Amp and you get some pretty good sound when you are at home. In my opinion, if you listen and get used to their sound, you'll be happy with the sound. Also, they fit well on my head, which I like. I felt like the other...
Pros: The Noise Isolation is Like No Other
Cons: Some say the sounds isn't that great. I think it's good/great
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. The headphones were well packaged and the box included a travel case, 1x AAA battery, detachable cable, headphone adapter for passenger airliners, operating instructions (many languages) and warranty registration card. Anyway, I just plugged...
Excerpt: Expensive for what it is. The sound is fine, but the headset feels like an echo chamber - plugs up my ears. Feels like when you are in a plane and your ears close up - but happens everytime I wore - no matter where, on ground, sofa, etc. Did not like that feeling at all. Headset is large and even set at the smallest setting, would fall backwards. Not comfortable at all. For the price, returned.
Excerpt: Used this one a plane trip recently. Boy, did it make a difference! It almost sounded like I was at home instead of on a plane. And I didn't have to listen to the baby 10 rows up so that was a definitely unexpected bonus. Only issue was that sleeping with it on the plane was very uncomfortable as I couldn't lean my head against anything because that pressed the headphone too uncomfortably against my head so I didn't get the good sleep I was hoping with the headphones.
