Summary: These headphones have the best noise cancelling I have ever tested. They use a combination of passive and active noise cancelling technology and both work like butter and bread to create an amazing environment when using the headphones.
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.
Excerpt: These head phones are only good for people who travel or work in an office and want to remove background noise. Which they are great for, but you can't even walk down the street with them on. The sound cancelling to stops everything and you cut get it cutting in and out.

Excerpt: Commuting is a state of mind thing. It can be a necessary evil, or it can be a period of calm where nobody bothers you. I try to make my commute the latter - two hours every day where I can do my own thing without anyone expecting me to do something for them.
Pros: Excellent noise cancellation, good sound quality
Cons: Bulky to carry, very expensive compared to passive headphones, useless without a battery
Exceptional noise cancellation, nothing comes close...

Summary: I first bought some of these headphones about four years ago. I'm now on my 2nd pair. Overall, they are fantastic. The sound quality is good, but not exceptional. Lacking in bass for my own taste, but where they excel is in the noise cancellation, particularly on-board aircraft.

Summary: Old headphone cushions started to smell as I wore them for a while during exercise (mistake!). The old cusions came off easily and these fitted on well. The price is a little much I think, but this is bose after all!
Summary: I've been using these for nearly 4 years and never felt sorry for a moment that I got them. I fly a lot, use subway and local trains a lot too - these headphones are superb for travelling! You barely hear any other sounds than music (unless you play music very quietly).
