Summary: I wanted to add that having broken my QC2's which were around 6 years old, I rang Bose to ask about a repair - the right hand cup had broken away from the head band - and they said that whilst they do not repair their headphones, they would be happy to let me have a brand new pair of QC15's for only £109!! I simply have to return my broken pair they will then charge my debit card and send me a new one out!!
Summary: These headphones are superb. They won't cancel all extraneous sound, but they certainly enhance the listening experience. There's also a quality feel about the product, from the natty case they come in to the feel of the earphones themselves. Once they're on your head you can almost forget you've got them on at all. I particularly like this aspect as I have found that with other headphones this isn't always the case. I wear glasses which adds to this propensity.
Summary: This review is for "Bose® QuietComfort® 15 remote and microphone accessory" only. Pricey on Amazon. Hence purchased it directly from Bose who is selling this product for £25.I have recently purchased "Bose® QuietComfort® 15 remote and microphone accessory for selected Apple products". Although I received the product as expected but the quality of the product is not what I was expecting.
Summary: Having been a critic of Bose audio for many years, after extensive research I finally purchased these headphones. My criteria was simple: High-end noise cancelling (which I did not believe from what I read), convenient size and comfort, quality construction. I am a true techno-geek and read all of the specifications and technical manuals, before and after purchasing a product, but I also tend to break headsets and headphones that are not built to take a lot of traveling.

Summary: Read around on the internet and you will find a fairly reliable consensus emerging on Bose noise-cancelling headphones. Audiophiles tend to hate them, because they are expensive but have low fidelity (compared to headphones in their price bracket); people who buy them purely for noise-cancelling tend to like them, and even think that they sound pretty good.
First impression Wow, six months later and they're still impressive

Summary: The other 5 star ratings have covered the facts. Noisy environments become quiet, quiet environments become eerily quiet. Of course the noise cancelling doesn't deal with sudden noises, only consistent noises (engines, fans, air conditioning, computers, etc.). For travelling and offices these are just excellent.
Summary: What a wonderful item. Really impressive, sound quality superb, nice carry case and really comfortable to wear! Wish only that the branding wasn't so visible on the side of the earphone which I am sure would not pose a problem sitting in a business class airplane cabin but potentially a tad more problematic on the London underground!!!
