Rated 4 out of 5 by pollypants Great Sound
These sound very good and they really do cancel out noise. The battery box is annoying.

This has to be one of my best purchases ever. For the audio geek, maybe they don't make the cut. But the sound is rich full range, and wonderful. I can't wait to travel with these for work travels. I just love the depth of sound. Get them. You will be so happy.
Rated 2 out of 5 by GM Columbus Love the sound but hate the battery
I am a huge Bose fan and have lots for their products....I purchased the Bose QC20 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones...The sound is great on them however, the battery that dangles with the headphones is annoying. I had to send them back because the battery.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Moose2u Fantastic!!
I've long been a fan of the Bose in ear headphones. Great for motorcycles/quads anything with a helmet. Great for working out. Anything active! I'm used to loud music but having to turn up my music to be able to hear it over engine or any other noise has always made me think about how I'm destroying my ears lol. I also recently went on a couple of cross country flights and was envious of those with the noise cancelling headsets around me. I watched movies on my iPhone and had to turn it almost all the way up to be able to hear it over the jet/ambient cockpit noise. I finally pulled the trigger and bought a pair and am mad at myself for having been on the fence for so long. These are AMAZING!! I've been using them in the gym every day on the treadmill. Before, I had to turn up the music/movie almost all the way up, now I can listen at completely comfortable levels and I can't hear my 250 lbs hammering away on the treadmill. I can't hear anything except the music/movie. What an amazing difference. If you're on the fence, Bose noise cancelling headsets are absolutely worth every penny!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by KerryC AMAZING!
I bought these to replace my old beloved standard, nothing fancy bose earbuds and was pretty doubtful as to how well these new bose earbuds would cancel noise but knew the sound quality would rock. They came, found my fit with the three available tip sizes and popped them in. I could still hear things, albeit muffled. AND THEN I TURNED THESE HEADPHONES ON!!! I literally let out a "OH MY GOD!" I was suddenly sitting in a totally quiet room, I could no longer hear the TV. Music also sounds as beautiful as I expect from bose. Well done, I highly recommend these. Plus they work with my apple products seamlessly.
Can't wait to take these to work, the focus I will be able to achieve and no need for giant over the ear, hair mussing head phones. Yay!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prashanth Excellent product
I bought this more than a year ago and have used it in different situations.
1. Very compact to carry in my bag or travel. Virtually takes no space at all.
2. Sturdy wires, much better compared to what I received with my iPhone (but then again, iPhone EarPods cost 30$).
3. Minimal tangling of the wires, makes it a pleasure to even carry them in my pocket.
4. Very secure fit.
5. Excellent noise cancelling, while commuting as well as in all situations, like just walking in a mall and talking on my mobile, the external noise is so little that I don't have to crank up the phone volume at all.
6. As with all Bose products, sound quality is excellent when the noise cancelling is turned on but not so good when the noise cancelling is switched off or battery is dead. This is not a big deal for me or a deal breaker. That is the only con I can describe.
7. Waiting for wireless version of these ear phones and will replace them.
2. Sound quality is not so good when the noise cancelling is switched off or battery is dead. Hope Bose improves on this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweetestjoy Good Headphones
I bought these a couple of years ago and I love them. I tend to use them the most at night when my husband starts to snore. I just reach down the cord and flip on the noise-cancellation. While not perfect for just noise cancelation, by the time you add your favorite music, you are good to go. The sound is great and the headphones are comfortable. I thought they were somewhat pricey, but they have lasted my nightly use. I recommend them.
Rated 3 out of 5 by TonyC1958 Good but not durable enough
I bought these a year or so ago and have loved them. However for the price I am very disappointed to find the rubber casing on one side of battery casing has split. A botched attempt at glueing it back has rather ruined the look and I take pride in these things.
