A must for frequent flyers

Excerpt: I admit I only use my Bose headphone when I'm flying and need to drown out the screaming child 3 rows back or the obnoxious couple sitting right behind me. The headphones allow me to shut them out and enjoy my music or audiobook. On long flights when we pull out the laptop and watch our own movies, the Bose are a must for clarity so you can hear the dialog over the roar of the plane.
Bose - QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones are great
9 September 2012
Excerpt: i really like the design for these headphones not to harsh on your years and thats what consumers are seeking comfort. Plus you can enjoy your hobbies such as listening to an audiobook or watching a movie while traveling. I personally like the headphones that can block out other sounds that are harsh and irratating. I would reccomend this product to all who want to enjoy simple things while being on the road or camping.
Excerpt: I received these headphones for christmas in december 2008. I was impressed with the quality - at first. However, after about a month a persistent static developed in the headphones. I was able to ignore this for the most part as it was not usually audible with most music / videos. Unfortunately, the cord recently developed what I assume is a bad connection and will have to be sent in for repair, after only half a year of usage.
Excerpt: This was a gift for my husband who is a discerning user. Brand name to him equates with quality for him. It worked very well but cannot be used casually. It needs to be put away EVERY time after use and not tossed on the sofa or table. The earpiece came off the rest of the headphones and could not be put back even after a visit to the Bose store. For the price paid for it, $150+ , that was disappointing.
Excerpt: I've gone through numerous sets of headphones and have probably spent as much money twice as what I did on this one set that will last way longer than any others. In my opinion, these are the best headphones out there right now. My teenagers love them and when they are sitting at the table listening with these on, I can't hear them and I am in the SAME room. It's great!!
Excerpt: Sounds great and real comfortable. Expensive but good things usually are. Wish they were they size of the non-noise cancelling Bose headphones. The difference in bulkiness is significant. While I like the noise cancelling feature, I usually travel with the other because of size. Only other negative I have found is the lack of auto off. I always am burning out the battery...
Excerpt: I travel often and these are great. They cut out the airplane noise (but not voices) and they make my ipod music sound great! They do make your ears a bit warm at times, but it isn't a big issue. I did try on the newer model that is on the ear and they were very comfortable, I would probably get those if I was in the market right now. I don't really have any issues with battery life.
Bose-QuietComfort 2 Headphones. Defective cushions material
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The vinyl material they use on the ear cushions and the top of the headphones is poor quality. The vinyl started flaking off on a buisness flight from Los Angeles to Bangkok. The little black flakes got all over my clothes and in my hair. Bose wants to charge $100 plus shipping and handling to replace them.
Excerpt: I Really love these head phones. they are great for listening to the ipod and I am really happy with how they turn out. I have enjoyed paying for them, I am just sad that they are charging so much money for these phones.
Excerpt: I received these headphones as a gift from my husband a couple years ago. They are, by far, the best headphones I have owned. The sound is fantastic and they are comfortable. The only complaint I have is that I cannot run with them because they slip off my head.
