Bose QC 20i Noise Cancelling Headphones for Apple
Does Not Cancel Noise
My husband purchased these for me just prior to my most recent trip last month. We've always used Bose noise canceling headphones on the airplane to cancel out everyone's talking. These earbuds DO NOT cancel out the noise as good as the over the ear headphones. I heard everyone around me talking. Yes, it was at a lower level but I could still hear others conversations clearly. They do work fine with my mobile device but so do my Bose non-noise canceling earbuds. Needless to say, when I got home, my husband traded these in on the Bose Quiet Comfort 25 headphones.
Purchased two sets 14 months ago for air travel. I love it on the plane as they are not as bulky as our Bose around the ear noise canceling headsets. My husband didn't find them as good. His ear piece broke after about ten uses and he couldn't use the "stay hear" piece. We received only the standard help from Bose customer service, pay to replace. Its a large expense for a fragile product. Not up to the other Bose quality standards. I can't recommend for the money.
i love the fact i can recharge this with a usb, instead of traditional wall plug, sound clarity is top notch. i had the quiet comfort headphones 15 which i loved, but the over the ear headphone is kind of a nuisance when running or doing other exercises. the ear tips are very comfortable to wear, the ear plugs don't work out, and the noise canceling is just as effective as my old qc 15's were. well worth the money
I bought this for my brother for Christmas. Mister Hard-to-please cannot stop singing its praises. Yes it is an investment, but just to see the joy that it has brought is totally worth every penny. All of the features are just as described. The compact design is a total game changer. If you are on the fence about getting these for yourself, or a loved one, take the leap. Both the noise cancelling and the aware mode work great. My biggest worry was that this little headphone could not produce the same effect as the over-the-ear ones. Was I wrong! They are tiny and compact, but really get the job done. Bose has done it again!
Didn't perform well
Was very disappointed with product, didn't work well with my ipod classic, volumn was low, didn't cancel out any outside noise well, sounded like an very expensive below average headphones...
Best Bose Yet
OMG...... For those people who earbuds hurt, try Bose!!!!
Sound is fantastic! Feel very very comfortable.
These headphones do exactly what they claim. I recently used them on a flight and was able to listen to my audio book without any airplane noise. In the past I have not been able to listen without turning the volume way up, and even then it was difficult to hear. They are extremely comfortable, and stay in my ears. I find the earbuds that come with Apple products to be too large and uncomfortable, and they fall out of my ears. I am totally pleased with my purchase.
These are AWESOME!
I've been using Bose in-ear headphones for years now. But these blow the others away. I can't believe the quality of the sound and the noise cancellation is unreal. Way to go Bose!
Love these Bose!
I would give these Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones more stars if I could! They do just what Bose says they do! Super comfortable in the ear, w/three different sizes to chose from, plus they fit like a dream! The sound...What can I say but WOW!!! Turn on the amp & turn down the volume because they will blow your wig off! The sound is superb!!! I love the easy of recharging the amp battery! Don't worry about loosing these great headphones w/the super nice & compact case you get! Let's not forget about the noise cancelling feature, works like a charm!!! Lock the world out by listening to your favorite music!!! I Highly Recommend these Bose Headphones!!! thanks!
I gave these as a gift to my son and they worked just as presented. The only thing was one of the buds looked a little cock-eyed and when we removed the ear piece, the tiny tabs that hold them on were broken. We had to return them, but are definitely getting them replaced. Otherwise they would have gotten 5 stars.
SUPER HEADPHONES!!! 10 STARS!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!
I received these today and to my surprise they came already charged!!! Then I tried them.. The sound is superb!! Then while I had them connected to my iPhone I turned the TV up and I couldn't hear a word only lips moving!!! I own 2 other Bose noise canceling headphones that I use for traveling but the case is too bulky and you have to have batteries and they were just too big. All I can say is that these earphones are worth every penny. Don't hesitate to buy these..you will be amazed with the sound quality and the portability as well as the silence when you want to block the world out!! Thanks Bose and thanks QVC for easy pay!!
I had previously owned the qc15's. My only issues with those was:
1) I sometimes wear glasses and the over the ear cup made it uncomfortable
2) the noise canceling made it feel like me eardrums were getting sucked out
The qc20's solve both of those problems. They fit perfectly in the ear and are not to bulky at all. They can be use with or without the noise canceling. Sound is great and the noise canceling is by far the best on the market. My wife was sitting 2 feet away from me and I could not hear a single word of what she was saying. Plus you no longer need to worry about replacing batteries as these can be charged by a micro usb.
