Summary: My system had a problem with the audio. It was missing some sound frequencies to my ear when compared to other same model systems. Went many times to customer service and the unit returned the same until they replaced all the boards with a note "just for custumer satisfaction, no problem found". The thing is that it sounds good, much better than before but there is something missing still in the audio and BOSE cannot figure it out with their technical tests.
Summary: These headphones are excellent. The sound is really amazing when you listen to music and the noise cancelling works perfectly. It's pricey, but worth the money if you really want to enjoy your music without outside noises interrupting.
Summary: I won two pairs of Bose.The first pair is only an over the ear pair. not bad but not great. I kept looking and got a KILLER deal on Ebay on the QC15. I LOVE to watch DVDs (TV-series). And my Mother keeps coming in and asking a question of me. I cant hear at all. I have to take them off so I can hear. LOVE LOVE LOVE the QC15. Well worth the 200 I paid for a near new pair. I told the previous owner that I would take GREAT care of them and I WILL.
The most increditable headphones I have ever used for live recording.
17 June 2011
Summary: I listened to a set of these at Best Buy and fell in love with them. I do live recording at my church and I have to have headphones to block out the main system so I can hear a separate mix from our digital sound board. These headphones are the best noise cancelling headphones for the price. And the quality and clarity of the sound is amazing. From low range to high, you can hear crystal clear.
Summary: Alright so this is my first review, but ill try to just lay down the facts and keep it simple. These headphones do an amazing job of taking all outside noise away. just flipping the switch on them even without music playing, makes you feel like you entered a vacuum where all sound disappears. Its really something to awe at. If you're going to buy these headphones, it should be for that reason alone.
The cord is long.. verrry long.
Pros: Noise Cancelling, Comfortable, long term wear comfort
Cons: unusably long cord, music quality is nothing special.
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: 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
