Bose QuietComfort 3 Review

Anything but iPod
10 September 2010
  • 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. I would definitely try out the Sennheiser models before making a choice though, at least the smaller (cheaper) models as the PXC350 and PXC450 are way too large to qualify as travel headphones...

Expert Review

19 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Bose has created a pair of cans that effortlessly delivers a winning blend of comfort, portability and audio quality. Great if you can stomach shelling out the cash.
  • Pros: Despite being smaller and lighter than previous models in Bose’s QuietComfort range, these on-ear cans still deliver its signature noise cancellation with silky aplomb - this clever tech wipes out distracting background noise, making these headphones a boon for frequent flyers or regular rail users - especially if they want to listen to quieter acoustic tunes or audiobooks. Sound quality is excellent, if a a smidge bass-heavy.
  • Cons: The high price tag is a little off-putting, especially when rivals such as Sennheiser are now offering classy noise-cancelling cans at a fraction of the cost. And while the battery is rechargeable (hurrah!) you need power not only to use the noise cancellation tech but to use the headphones full stop (boo!). No power? No music.

Bose QuietComfort 3 Headphones

13 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The rush hour traffic noise makes it difficult to hear music on your mp3 player while traveling. To counter that, most of the times, you pump up the volume to a point where its playing at a maximum. In doing so, you may permanently damage your ears with prolonged exposure to loud noise. Besides, surrounding or ambient noise also ruins your listening experience—a problem faced by frequent air travelers.

Bose QuietComfort 3

PC Magazine
25 September 2008
  • 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.

28 April 2007
  • 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?

"A Great Pair of Headphones!" - Adyssey Beats

22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I received a pair of the Bose Quiet Comfort 3 headphones for Christmas in 2006, six months after their release. These were my first pair of noise-cancelling headphones and they did not fall short of my expectations. A smaller, more compact product than their predecessor (the Quiet Comfort 2's), the QC 3's improve on both the quiet and the comfor...
