Really pleased with these

They're expensive, but far superior to anything I've used before. I have a partner who snores... really ruins trips etc. These totally block it all out! Ear buds are exceptionally comfortable. A real life changer...expensive....but much better than the alternatives!

Good sound. Cumbersome wire

Worth every penny!

With these earphones, you simply get the best sound possible for your music without having to carry big headphones. Car, bus, plane, public place... everywhere you can put them is worth it. It blocks amazingly sound that surrounds you (though I wish people's voices were better blocked). On top of everything, battery life is impressively good. With remarkable sound and noise cancelling feature, this piece of technology success to get you into an indescribable universe and make your life simply better. Worth every penny!

So very happy!

I'm a grounds keeper and I operate a lot of very noisy machinery. These noise cancelling earbuds are making my days at work much more enjoyable. When I activate the noise cancelling feature the noise from the very loud tractor I operate just disappears. It's really shocking and others at work have tried them because they don't believe it's possible. The sound quality of the music is topnotch. I wear them for hours at a time and they're super comfortable. The charge lasts multiple days for me, actually longer than my MP3 player.

Top Class Headphones.

Pros: Amazing Bose sound quality as expected. Listening to you fav music can never be better. Cons: Noise cancelling unit hanging around is annoying... It might be only for my s3 I urban armor gear case for my phone.. the 3.5 mm jack doesnt fit properly in the headphone port of the phone, making only one side functional.. changed back to bose MIE2 headset and both sides started to work. I would recommend these headphones to avid music lovers..give it a try wont regret

Makes commute more pleasant

Love these! Drowns out the noise and especially people's cell phone conversation on the train ride to and from work! Quality and comfort is excellent.

Good heatphones

2nd pair already since some students from u of t stole my other pair. The noise cancelling helps to drown out the pettiness of Torontonian conversations and the drone of the downtown crowds.

Bose QC20

FANTASTIC! And even that word doesn't really come close to how happy I am with this product and how well the noise cancelling system works. I work in a busy office and some days it's so noisy around my desk I find it difficult to focus on my work. My husband bought these for me for Xmas and I've been using them everyday since then. I listen to my music and I'm able to stay on task to get my job done without as much interruption. Co-workers have walked up behind me and started talking, not knowing that the Bose Buds are in my ears...sometimes the jokes on me but most times the jokes on them! LOL. I can't hear a thing they are saying. They have to tap me on the shoulder or walk in front of my desk to get my attention. The Bose Buds ear thingy's come in three different sizes. Once you find your size, you won't know you are wearing them, they are that comfortable. These are the only Buds I can wear for hours without getting a headache. There is nothing on the market the can compare and I've spent hundreds of dollars on different versions until I 'bit the bullet' and invested in a pair from Bose. I now own a pair of headphones so I can talk hands free on my iPhone and now I have this noise cancelling pair. Bose has even included a nice carry case that is small and fits in my purse. For guys out there that don't carry a 'murse' or 'satchel' the carry case will fit easily in most pockets. This noise cancelling system eliminates all outside noises, from co-workers talking to babies crying, dogs barking, and your husband!

Excellent sound, great for air travel

The sound is excellent. I used them on a recent flight and the noise cancelling feature is much better than other brands I have owned. I suppose the drawback is they are a little bulky for day to day use as they do not easily fit in your pocket. The case for them just barely fits my iPod Touch but it does fit which is nice.

Got them for my son who travels frequently and is disappointed with the full ear cover noise reducing earphones he has been using. On his first trip, he sent an email to say they were fantastic to listen to and comfortable for the long flights he takes. He also liked being able to speak to the attendant without having to remove an earphone by using the button to allow the hearing of ambient sound. He is very happy with them.

Unbelievable Performance

Got tired of carrying the big noise cancelling earphones around, but got the tip from a colleague that these were incredibly good. Picked up a pair at the airport prior to a flight, and... Wow! Noise cancelling quality is fantastic, way better then my big Beats by Dr Dre. Sound quality not too shabby either. Lithium Ion battery can be charged with the included USB cable. Expensive, but worth the money. I can only believe the other reviewer had a flat battery, or the active noise cancelling switched off, to get to a different conclusion.

Not worth the money

Great headphones but he price is way to much you get same quality-sound with a [price] headphones. You can still hear whats around even in quite mode. Why anyone would pay [price] for them is crazy.
