Conclusion: What it really comes down to is how much you need noise cancellation. If you like me only use it once in a while it’s not worth $350 and I wouldn’t pay $350 for these, but if I were traveling more I wouldn’t hesitate to lash out money for a good pair of noise canceling headphones.
Excerpt: Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones Review Bose have once again defines the headphone market with the QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones (QC3) that deliver one of the most impressive audio experiences of the 21st century.
Summary: I am still testing them having initial strong thoughts to return them straight back. The issue is that I really dont like leaking sound headphones as mostly using them among other people (gym, plane, jogging etc)
Other even bigger issue is that on my Galaxy Note the volume level is so low that you...
Pros: Great clarity and balanced exellent stereo sound.
Cons: Leaking sound, low volume on the mobile phone
Summary: Honestly they are expensive, but extremely satisfying headphones. The noise cancellation works wonders, specially in planes. The headphones have a great build quality although many say they look flimsy, they are actually pretty robust and fit amazingly on the head/ears.
Pros: great sound, comfort and great noise canceling
Conclusion: The Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones are better than most noise-canceling models, but I still prefer the QuietComfort 2. The QC3's are very comfortable, and they provide good sound and very good noise cancellation; they make ears happy, but you pay through the nose.
Pros: Very good noise canceling. Small form factor. 20-hour rechargeable battery. Good sound quality. Very comfortable.
Cons: Doesn't work unless switched on and battery has power. Ear pads will make your ears sweat. Case is nearly as bulky as that of the QC2. Expensive.
Conclusion: Travelling from the city of Sin to the airport of Essex, the Lordpercy team test Bose's new set of noise cancelling headphones. Can they deaden the roar of the engines and chatter of cabin crew while providing quality audio reproduction?
