Worth every penny

  • Excerpt: I use these to block out the rumble of the streets that constantly permeate my home. They work! Sharp sounds will come through, as will someone's voice (a bit muffled), but that constant background noise disappears - and my shoulders relax and I can breathe.. Fantastic!I originally bought the full muffs but found them a bit warm and heavy and the ear buds are just as good. I was able to exchange them easily after a few days.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I purchased these from B&H because I left my original set on a plane (UGH!) - so I already knew what a great job these do - they are comfortable to wear and they really do block out MOST of the plane noise (whenever I put them in my ears and then turn them on, it feels aaahhhhh!) and they also do a good job on my husband's snoring.

Much better than my Bose overear phones

  • Excerpt: I travel every week to NA, EMEA, and APJ, and have enjoyed my Bose overear headphones for several years. I thought they were great until a friend told me to try his new in-ear headphones. I ordered them that night. Here is what I've found: They are better at noise cancellation; I really like the button you can push so that you can hear a flight attendant, etc.

Worth the expense

  • Excerpt: Really works as well as the larger variety. Small form factor that makes it convenient to take on trips. Great sound. Turn on the noise cancellation and cuts the airplane ambient noise by 90%, without playing music. Very comfortable.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Lightweight

Bose QuietComfort 20

Glenn, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I fly a great deal and use these often. When the switch is turned on the rest of the trip melts away. I am now able to capture all the music and movie dialogue that was escaping in the noisy environments. The ear buds are comfortable and the sound quality when making or receiving calls is excellent. The battery pack is a little cumbersome, however it is manageable.
  • Pros: Sound quality, ease of receiving and making calls on my Android.
  • Cons: Batter pack a little cumbersome.

Bose Noise Canceling Technology

Beau Thurnauer, Crutchfield
25 February 2014
  • Summary: I was very hesitant to spend almost $300 on ear buds even they said "noise cancelling". But I went ahead and ordered. The real test? Listening while riding a large lawn tractor. I understand white noise but was not prepared to have the engine noise virtually eliminated. Amazing product and so worth the money. I traveled out west last week and used them on the plane. Perfect. I highly recommend this product.
  • Pros: Delivers as advertised. You hear music not background noise. Very comfortable. Long battery life after charge, over 12 hours.
  • Cons: I wish the battery unit separated for charging.

QC-20 : A Great Buy

Bob, Crutchfield
25 February 2014
  • Summary: A bought this item just before leaving on a month-long trip to Europe to quiet the noise on the airplanes. I was not disappointed. The ear buds were still comfortable even after using them for 8 hours at a time. The noise reduction was very good. For example, my movie volume level was about 1/2 that of my travel mate. Also worked fine with my iPod and my phone.
  • Pros: Small size compared to head phones Very good noise reduction
  • Cons: None

excellent

  • Summary: I travel a lot. I purchased this product specifically for this reason. This Bose works superbly by isolating unwanted noise. Also you can switch to a normal background noise with a switch, no need to take them off. Well built, convenient. As far as a sound, it satisfies my taste quite well.
  • Pros: noise reduction, well built. sound
  • Cons: Price. Cord from the battery to a USB Port could be longer.

Really Works

Scotty, Crutchfield
20 February 2014
  • Summary: After reading countless positive reviews, I finally bought these, despite the price. The main reason for my purchase was the noise reduction, which is startlingly effective. I found the sound quality superlative, though truly discriminating audiophiles will not want to trust my judgment on such matters. The large earpieces gave me the best sound quality and noise cancellation, but were too tight for prolonged use.
