The sound is just great, the best I have tried.
The noise canceling ability of this product is amazing as well as the clarity of the music.
I love how quiet the headphones are, I work in a machine shop and they work very well for me.
GREAT HEADPHONES BUT EXPENSIVE.
I have fear of flying phobia and these headphones reduce airplane noises significantly. I like them, because you can disconnect the cable, and use them for only sound blocking. There is really no competition, Sony used to make similar headphones, but no anymore. The price is steep, and BOSE control market prices-monopoly. They go on sale few times a year so you can save 10%.
My dream headphones
Bose produce the best noise cancelling headphones. Some of their models Ive seen used by small aircraft and helicopter pilots. Those cost over 1000$. The QC15 cost much less, but deliver same quality. It does cancel lots of outside noises, and deliver beautiful sound.
Bose Noise canceling headphones
They will completely change your flying experience, peace and quiet. Only the sound of the music or video will be experienced, crystal clear. I cant imagine traveling without them.
Great Sound Great Comfort Just GREAT!
Just a great headphone overall. The sound is crisp, and crystal clear. Bass is amazing! Not just a fashion statement headphones like certain headphones starting with "B". Not a "hype" product and highly recommended. Cannot go wrong.
Super noise canceling.
Great for airline travel
Bose Quiet Comfort 15
Already took my first airline flight.
WHAT A JOY not to hear engine roar and crying babies!! And, oh so comfortable on my head. . .
Drop the price, and let Apple people purchase their custom connections.
The best Noise Cancelling Headphones.
This was a gift and I am so thankful for them. Perfect when you are traveling and want to shut out the outside noise and just relax to music or even just sleep during your commute.
This is a gift for my friend, she really loves it! It helps a lot when travelling, having a very good sound quality. Nice design, and not heavy to carry.
Great noise canceling
Great for traveling by air. Stops all outside noise.
This was a product for my husband to use while traveling and to tone out noise- he likes it!
nice to have
Great headset, especially if you travel a lot. I fly on a weekly basis and this saves me from all the babies that are crying.
Comfortable, superb noise cancellati
The noise cancellation cant be beat, which is important on long-haul flights. They are very comfortable, too. I like the case (seems like it would protect them well while travelling). It also has controls on the cord for an IPOD, which is handy (if you have an ipod). The price is difficulty to justify, Ill admit, but they are very nice. My rationalization is that the cheaper ones I have bought never seem to last more than a year or so.
Excellent noise cancelling.
Needs battery power to listen to music.
ON/OFF switch was defective. Slight bump on or near switch and music turns OFF and ON with static.
Very happy with my purchase
Great nosie cancelling feature. Sound is very clear.
Quality product - worth the price
I was initially reluctant to get this noise cancellation headset, but after purchasing it, I couldnt be more satisfied. This headset has given me a new appreciation for my music collection with a sound quality unmatched by my other headphones and ear buds. Further, having recently travelled, it was really useful for my long flights.
The "Apple" mic and controls are useful if you want to play music on an iPod, iPhone or iPad.
The only drawback is that you have to turn on the headset to hear the music or use the "Apple" features.
If you could "stomach" the initial price, it is well worth it. I dont anticipate buying any more headsets for a while.
Shopped Around and Sharper Image the Bes
Bought as a Christmas gift and found best price and service at Sharper Image
Bose QC 15 - Great choice!
I debated with myself as to whether to invest in such expensive headphones. Im so glad that I decided to get the Bose QC 15! They really help on crowded flights with lots of background noise! These headphones give me the flexibility to tune-out everything and everyone :-)
Amazing at noise reduction
These do an amazing job with noise reduction. Much better than the cheap on-ear pair I had been using. They seem to be very comfortable over exxtended periods of time.
Worth every penny!
The best noise cancelling headphones! If you are traveling by air, dont leave home without it.
Best Noise Canceling Headphones
Bar none these are the most comfortable noise canceling headphones on the market. Theyre comfortable and dont pinch if you wear glasses. However, they are a bit flimsy and I wonder how durable they will be.
Excellent noise cancellation headphones
- Great noise cancellation. Dead silence from the environment once turned on. I have owned a couple of other noise cancellation headphones (from $50 to $100 range). One common theme is that they all generate a faint hissing sound in the background. But not this Bose.
- Excellend build quality. Come with a good flat carrying case.
- Good sound quality. Great clarity in all ranges. Purely from sound quality point of view, my Audio Technica ATH50 is still superior (for my home use). This Bose headphone is mainly for travel use.
Not so great:
- It has to be powered on in order to listen to music. So if you run out of battery, you cant use it in a "passive" mode. While my other noise cancellation headphones can still be used to listen to music without the noise cancellation, eventhough the sound quality seems to take a hit.
- While the sound have very good clarity in all ranges, I found the base is a little lacking for my personal taste.
- Expensive. I definately wouldnt pay $300 for it. Thats just agai
Excellent price and service
Purchased as a gift and just what he wanted to ensure his travels are comfortable
Great Noise Cancelling Heardphones.
These headphones are great. I recently used them for a cross country flight and they worked like a charm. The noise cancelling feature is second to none. My only complaint would be that the volume control does not work properly unless you are using an apple device. If you have an android phone or tablet you have to control the volume via the device and through cable. Other than that this is the best headphones I have owned hands down.
Good for college dorms, loft office use
- Does it what it says about noise cancellation
- Great use of stock AAA battery (yet to try Sanyo Eneloop NiMH AAA battery)
- Liked the extra audio cable with mic/Mute/play/pause controls
- Seemed to sound way better than other Noise cancelling headphones as well as other non-noise cancelling "trendy" over priced headphones
- Dorm students may find this useful if they share room with noisy friends or have to study in nosiy environments
-- Good for new style open floor plan /Loft style offices
NICE PRODUCT BEST USE FOR NOISE CANCEL
EXCELLENT FOR TRAVEL USE
Awesome headphones. Worth every penny. Works as advertised. A must have for air travel.
Excellent headset I ever purchased
I am a music lover and researched many head phones, finally my research was stopped with BOSE QC15
Was able to focus and study during a flight with screaming children
Noise cancellation is great!
Great noise cancellation, comfortable
Use the product to study in loud coffee shops, blocks out almost all noise. Sound quality is great on the headphones too. Battery lasts a while.
Great Quiet Comfort
I purchased these for travel use, but ended up using them to block out noise from the construction project next door. They effectively block out the extraneous noise and allow me to view my videos in quiet comfort.
Equal parts terrible and brilliant
The Bose QC15 is a simple product to review.
These headphones retail at $300 and can be found on sale for around $250-270. Needless to say, these are actually pretty pricey headphones. Unfortunately, the audio quality during music playback is terrible. And I dont mean terrible for $300 headphones, I mean its pretty bad in general. Poor soundstage, artificial bass, not enough highs and mids. If youre not an audiophile you might find them acceptable because its a very "warm" sound. But if you really like music youll find the audio quality is worse than pair of Sennheisers that cost, literally 1/10th the price.
So why a 5 star review? Because the noise cancellation and long-term wearing comfort of these headphones are unsurpassed. Ear cushions are soft, well ventilated, and seal noise well. The noise cancellation is absolutely brilliant. Very very low white noise (hiss) and really cancels out the loudest stuff coming in: for example, loud and dull hum of a 767.
For that reason alone, these
Excellent Noise Reduction Headphones
I tried several noise cancelling headphones but have only purchased one other prior to the Bose QC15. These Bose headphones are the best at noise reduction. Quality of sound reproduction is good but not outstanding. Suits my needs for noise reduction on airplanes, etc. But I use other headphones when at home or in an otherwise quiet environment that doesnt require noise cancellation. They are fairly comfortable and while not compact, can easily be carried in a carry on. Overall, a good purchase if you need noise cancellation while traveling and can afford the high price tag.
Amazing for planes, trains and autos
These are the best noise canceling headphones money can buy. Do yourself a favor if youre a traveler and get a pair of these, it completely changes your airline/travel experience. The only downside I can see with these is that they can be a little bulky, especially if you like traveling light. Bose is known for their amazing sound products and these headphones are no exception.
I use these for studying in noising areas. And its so perfect. So worth the money. I am able to play classical music on a low setting while cancelling out any background noise. Ive used them for couple of weeks and have not run of battery yet. They are not so compact but they are very comfortable. They fit my small head great and they fit my husbands big head great.
Best Noise Cancelling
Best noise cancelling there is. Sound is great. Only slight negative is the build, light and plasticky feel.
I intend to use it both at home to block street noises while listening to my IPod. That has worked out perfectly. I also intend to use it during my many travels and anticipate the same satisfaction.
Not very cool, but work as expected
It looks compact and classic.
Needs battery all the time, even for listening music with lines.
But its really good for noise cancellation.
Awesome headphones- simply amazed!!
Review on QC15
Dont think this unit will make all you noise problems disappear!
I got them for my wife and she just love
lessen to music, does class work,
watches TV and uses her great BOSE head set
Best Headphones on the Market
Its a great product but I am not sure how durable it will be over time.
Good sound quality headphone
I use this headphone every time I commute to work and it is very good. Good noise cancellation and sound quality.
I was very impressed with the QC15, after pondering over it for months and months and being hesitant to fork out the price. I didnt know where to insert the battery and there was nothing in the manual so I had to look it up online which was very strange. The battery cover also seems flimsy and Im a bit afraid it will break over time but I hope not. Otherwise it worked great in the noisy subway train and I hardly heard any of the rails screech.
BOSE Headphones are the best
I have a pair of 5 year old BOSE headphones which my husband coveted, I bought him these for his birthday and their noise-cancelling is even better than my pair. I cant fly without them and now, neither will he.
VEry good headphones, always wanted to have. Amazing sound quality. The only cons is that you have to turn the noise cancelling off when you done listening, to save the battery, but that is expected for every device
Oldie, but a goodie
I bought these headphones after a lot of looking around and getting recommendations from others. I do like the sound they produce, and they definitely reduce the ambient noise around. They seem just a touch small around my ears and a little tight after an hour of wear.
Good noise blocker - good sound
Great for travel. Blocks out noise very well.
Perfect for travel
Love using these on the plane. Do a great job of blocking out engine noise.
I use it mainly to block out noise from my neighbors and to enjoy a quiet environment every now and then.
Comfortable and Great Noise Cancelling
These headphones work as described. Theyre comfortable, cancel the majority of ambient white noise, sound quality is great, and the headphones come ready to interface with an iphone; phone calls via your Bose headphones and mic work perfectly.
Bose Quiet Headphones are fantastic!
The headphones are a lifesaver for my long travel trips.
Who turned OFF the noise?
Used on the long flights from San Francisco to Hong Kong. Amazing. Better than expected!
I love the QC15. Great noise cancellation during my recent plane trips. I did not hear the engine or other travelers.
The only downsides are the price and the flimsy cord. I prefer a tangle free thick cord.
Good noise cancelling, Quality sound.
I use the headset 5-8 hours a day in a jet. It cancels the engine and wind noise enough to make it easy to hear ATC.
Not enough ear height adjustment.
Headset gets hot in the summer, not as hot as my last headset but hot.
The sounds is great and all others sounds are muffled as soon as you turn it on. Amazing! These are top quality.
I just wish they would put the on/off switch on the cord instead of the headphone. Would make it much easier to use and also to remember to turn them off
Best Noise Cancelling Headphone
This is the best noise cancelling headphone in the market. It can blocks constant noise very effectively, for example jets humming, or trains travel.
The sound is average at best and there are better sound for the price out there. But combined with the noise cancelling technology, this is the best.
Great active noise-cancelling headphones
I purchased this headphones after reading rave reviews for years.
I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with the active noise-canceling feature. Since the headphones operates only when turned on, the battery-powered active noise-canceling feature can not be disabled. Some noise frequencies are filtered better than the others. For example, when there is no music playing, you can hear the person talking next to you with the headphones on. My other, regular headphones better block speech passively, while BOSEs QC 15 shines when it comes to constant noises, like jet engine turbines.
Overall, I would strongly recommend these headphones for noise canceling capabilities. If you are looking for superior sound quality, I would look elsewhere, since these headphones are designed as a compromise between active noise canceling, comfort and the sound quality.
These headphones are VERY comfortable and light, and will give you long hours of sonic comfort when handled with care, due to the sophisticated and light const
Worth its weight in gold
I use these headphones every time I travel. They are perfect for drowning out the sound of airplane engines, listening to your own music or viewing movies on the airplane.
We travel a lot, and the Bose headphones make better neighbors.
Great service with fast delivery.
High quality of product.
I am using it in office and on travel. The noise cancellation is awesome. Someone would say the sound quality of Bose is not as good as other products at this price. For me it sounds ok. I am not a fanaticism in music.
For the first few days, I have a little feeling of headache. Did some research and found someone may feel uncomfortable because of the pressure. But now the feeling is gone.
great earphones, good price, received qu
Great for air travel
I bought these because I am going to be doing quite a bit of plane traveling over the next year. I used the stock headphones I got with my iPhone but they didnt work well with the background noise on the airplane. These are far better then any other headphones I tried. They blow the Beats out the water. The only thing the Beats have on the Bose is the bass, which I could care less for. Overall I highly reconmmend these to anyone, but as always, try to go in a store and try them on if your planing on buying them online. Make sure they work for you since they are pricey.
Outstanding product! Cant be better than this. Definitively the best noise cancelling headphones you can buy!
I use them on planes and for traveling-- they are so effective and Im unable to fly without them!
I knew these set the standard for noise cancelling when I purchased them, and they live up to my expectations. Perfect for planes.
