Summary: Long Haul Flight + child sat behind you with a scream that would shatter Quartz(also parents that can not seem to grasp the concept of "no" to a child, one of the many parents whom seem to have fallen into the trap of wanting to be their child's best friend rather than their parent (but I am not here to rate parenting in the modern age) + Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones = relaxing flight and no law suit upon arrival.
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 recently upgraded to these from Bose's previous model, the QuietComfort 2. I'd wanted noise cancelling headphones for a while, the hum of the engine on the bus to work, and the drone of traffic outside my house has called for them. The QuietComfort 2 is now 10 years old, and can be picked up for as little as £40 on eBay; however they are still one probably the second best active noise cancelling headphones around. But, I hear you ask, which ones are number 1?
Pros: Decent sound quality, extremely comfortable, the best noise cancelling technology around
Cons: They're £300. Noise cancelling must be activated to be able to hear music
Summary: I had bought ear cushions from a different seller and while they are adequate they were not Bose. The difference in price of the authentic Bose replacement pads is well worth paying as the fit is perfect and my QC15 headphones sound like new. I can thoroughly recommend this product.
Summary: These earpads feel very comfortable, and are much superior in comfort to the cheaper alternatives available on this website. However, the advantages pertaining to comfort are heavily negated by the poor build quality and durability. After paying £300 for the original set of headphones, I would have not expected them to become so damaged in under a year.
Summary: After both my previous cushions wore out within a day of each other, I was left with the prospect of shelling out over 30 quid for replacements, or around 15 for non bose cushions. I'm glad I paid the extra and can recommend that choice to other people with the same reluctance to pay the full price. now my headphones are super comfy again and will last me another 4 years of heavy use.
