  • Summary: No one here needs to be told what these are - opinions of Bose are rather skewed one way or the other. Suffice to say that these are extremely popular headphones squarely aimed at the frequent airline traveler. Why do I have these 'phones?

  • Summary: As a frequent traveler, these headphones served their purpose. The noise cancellation is some of the best you'll find, but the audio quality suffers greatly as a consequence. They withstood about 2 years of very heavy use, before the earpads and drivers both completely gave out.
  • Pros: decent noise cancellation
  • Cons: middling to low quality audio, you can get miles better fidelity for the same price (see HiFiMan HE-300/Denon AH-D2000)

  • Summary: I compared these headphones with two other closed circumaural choices: the HFI-700s and AKG271Ss, testing with a variety of rock and pop selections. Files from a G5 are fed via toslink to a Bel Canto DAC2 and onto a Meier Corda Prehead.

Perfect fit. Ludicrously expensive.

  • Summary: I use the QC2's at work every day. They get a lot of use, and the earpads wear out in about 2 years. There's no choice butfor me to buy the genuine replacements IMHO, given the reviews of the non-Bose replacements on the interweb. I just wish they weren't such a rip off.

Bose ear cushions

Todd Sweeney, Amazon

  • Summary: Theres nothing wrong with these ear cushions, except the price. Although I have had the earphones for a couple of years now, I haven't used them regularly. They cost a lot and I didn't expect to have to replace the cushions, both for the ears and across the top (which I can't actually change).

Great but Bose won't repair them

  • Summary: I've had QC 1 and loved them and I wasn't disappointed with the general performance of the QC 11. Until something went wrong. Bose won't repair it's headphones once they're out of warranty.

Great sounding but...

  • Summary: I had heard very good things about these headphones so willingly i departed with a large amount of cash to get them! At first i was very impressed, the sound you get really is astonishingly clear with the bass section in particular coming out beautifully.
