These head phones are awesome for in ear; over the ear are good but as a female I am always worried about my hair so I got these and love them!!! The only thing is the clip used for the mic where is not secure so I've lost it and had to pay $4 for a new one.... Great sound otherwise!!!!!
April 25th 2018 Update: Amazing!!!!!
I've had these for many years and I absolutely love them. I use them in my travels all the time and they really help with the noise. Highly recommend them especially when in a flight with small kids around crying all the time! The it drwback is I lost the microphone clip but it's easily replaceable.
Great quality sound & really comfortable.
I can't do without these earphones and wear them everywhere. Noise cancelling is really good - particularly for the size and saves having to carry around a big case when travelling. My only gripe is that after regular use the cord has shown a bit of wear with some exposed wiring but I guess this is to be expected after over a year of very regular use.
Great Headphones, they have transformed flights!
Outstanding little headphones. Sound quality is good, but the real attraction is the outstanding comfort and noise cancelling abilities. Can't believe how I flew without these, They have completely transformed air travel for me, the noise reduction is outstanding. Nothing like arriving fresh and relaxed after a flight, I didn't realise how much of an impact the aircraft noise was having until i tried these.
Only negative would be that the replacement parts from BOSE, in my case I lost the pouch to store everything, are very very expensive. They wanted $32.84 and $5.00 deliver to replace the $2 item. Canadians can get them delivered free for less than half that. Aussie tax...
Fantastic, Highly recommend
Love these headphones. I travel a lot for work and they perform faultlessly. On a plane they cancel out close to all the background noise. Expensive yes, but by far the best noise cancelling ear phones I have ever used. I had the QC25 prior to the QC20 and they were just as good if a little bulky. The QC20 are much easier for travelling given their size and more comfortable if you happen to fall asleep mid flight. They do require USB charging but battery life is great. If they run out of charge you can still use as normal headphones without the...noise cancelling. The only real downside is the processing box that forms part of the earphone cord. Its is close the end of the cable that plugs into your device/phone but can be a little annoying. Certainly not a deal breaker as the NC circuitry has to go somewhere but hopefully next update to this product will see a decrease in the size of this particular part.

Great product and great warranty by company
These earphones are the best. A must have for the traveller especially for airplane travel. The science behind them is so simple but effective. The in ear buds are perfect for sleeping on long flights as well as producing good quality sound.
Recently , my unit earbuds had a charge problem only 14 months after purchase. 2 months out of warranty. When I contacted the store, they happily replaced my earbuds. Outstanding service! Congratulations to Bose and the team at Indooroopilly .
World's best because . . . . . .
I agree 100% with the previous reviewer JMBAU so I won't repeat the points. You have myriad choices of noise-cancelling headphones - brands, specifications, features and price-points. But these are "in-ear" phones with no rivals because the technology is proprietary to Bose - for the moment. Hence, for the moment you pay big time for the privilege (RRP $399.00). Clearly a class of its own because Bose created that class. Also, I use it to drown out airplane noise (without listening to music) so that I can listen clearly and attentively to the flight attendant's all important and captivating safety instructions. How sad!
Really do blot out noise
These in ear, noise-canceling earphones are simply wonderful. I have worn them on many a long plane flight as well as trains, buses, metros...alas, I finally lost my original pair and had to fly on a long flight home without them
Went straight out and bought another set - they really are that good.
They are incredibly comfortable for in-ear pieces - I have often have problems getting these to fit, but these fit very well. I wanted something that wasn't bulky, was light, and took up very little room. They deliver all this in space - with gre...
