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.
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.

Pros: An unusual, “on-ear” design, they sit more than comfortably but without making you resemble a cyberman. Sonic performance is really excellent, and actually does live up to Bose’s boasts for a change, with a very well rounded sound and what can only be described as warm, rich bass. Noise cancellin...
Cons: Although you do get two batteries, they are of Bose’s own devising, so you can’t just buy a couple of AAAs should you run out of juice, meaning you have to remember to charge them up every 20 hours or so. Designed for the ears of people who enjoy the music of Level 42 and Santana, they don’t go u...
