Summary: I have to watch and listen to dvds for a living, and these headphones are a great soft relief to my earbud-weary ears. They block lots of outside noise, though not as much as I expected. I wore them on a long flight, and they cut about half the usual airplane noise. All-in-all they are great and I highly recommend them.
Summary: I really enjoy these headphones and got a great deal from E-Bay. The noise canceling technique is really different from what I had thought they would be. I'm sure they would definitely take away the drone of an airplane motor, and other sounds that are around the household. You can still hear other people talking while wearing these headphones, and are great for music, and movies.
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. The battery life is very good, never ran out of battery and I charge them every once in a while with daily usage of the headphones.
Pros: great sound, comfort and great noise canceling
Excerpt: You know who I hate? Everyone. I need a decent pair of headphones so I can tune out the entire world. Bose QuietComfort 3 Noise Cancelling headphones is reliable and affordable literally the top two things I look in any product. You're never going to want to turn off pandora now that you have a pair of headphones that emits top quality sound.
Excerpt: I think the first thing to mention about these headphones is the great storage case they come in.They're a much more portable version of Bose's noise cancelling headphones, they're actually an on ear design like the OE2i model. These earphones silence everything except the extremely loudest bikes.
Pros: "Had Soft ear phone which makes an new experiance to the listner"
Excerpt: I have had mine for just about 2 years. They are effective to the point that the quiet may trouble some individuals. I live on an occupied road ,what's more the clamor could be troublesome when sitting on my lawn. These earphones silence everything except the extremely loudest bikes. Indeed those few are extremely silent.
Summary: These fitted my QC3's (purchased in 2006) without issue. The original Bose ones had quite literally disintergrated. They were reasonably easy to fit and clipped into place with a hard press of the thumb. My only issue was the mesh in the centre of the right hand ear piece became detached after a few days, but I rectified this with a few spots of super glue. A decent quality replacement, much cheaper than the silly money Bose wanted. Recommended.
