Summary: I never thought I'd call a gadget "life-changing". It sounds like the hyperbole of intelligence-insulting marketing. But I think it's fair to call these headphones just that. I have a middlingly horrible commute through central London in my working week. An hour each way on two of the Tube's busiest lines. All the research shows that commutes over 45 minutes significantly overall life satisfaction.
Summary: I have been thinking about buying these bose quiet comfort 15 for the last year and a half and I have to say, I'm glad I did. I have a pair of Goldring 1000 and they have been very good for the price at £70 at the time. But they've always let in some sound when flying and there is, without doubt, a slight hissing when using them. These Bose are a different animal altogether.
Summary: Had heard people talking about these, including my partner, his birthday is in March, he is in the Royal Navy Submarines and is going away for 3 months. I was going to wrap these up and give him them to open on the day, but knowing what they are supposed to be able to do, I thought he would probably benefit using them before March.
Summary: I already have a pair of these and got this pair as a present for my daughter. She love's them. Great sound and comfortable, noise cancelling works well, meets expectations you would expect from Bose. I would recommend.
Summary: I have been using the standard in ear headphones supplied with my phone for some time now and had noticed one or two friends at work using these headphones. I asked a colleague if I could try them out and he graciously allowed me to. One word..........WOW! As soon as I turned them on, the hum of the air conditioning system simply disappeared, the music my phone was playing was clear, with well defined bass and treble sounds and superb differentiation across the whole...
Summary: I bought this for my other half for Christmas and he loved it. I tried them for myself, as I wasn't too convinced and all I could say was wow! It really drowns out all the background noise. The "white noise" it submits was a little weird to begin with, but I'm now thinking of getting a pair myself.
The best noise cancelling headphones on the market.

Summary: These headphones are unmatched in doing what they are designed to do: cancel noise. It mostly blocks out mechanic noises such as fish tank filters and car motors. Without music playing you can still hear people talking but once the music starts playing (the important part) you won't hear anything but the music. Sound quality is decent but if you are looking for the best acoustics, these aren't for you.
Summary: When I put on the QC15 in the store, all of the white noise disappeared instantly and my iPhone test music was amazingly clear. These cans are very light and comfortable on my wide head even with glasses on. The cups are extra large so they easily fit over my ears. For some people the sound will be on the bright side, for me where I have hearing problems with upper mid range frequencies, this works well for listening to Jazz vocals.
