Bose ® QuietComfort ® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones, best noise cancelling of in ear types

Earphones

Things i like:- noise cancelling. They are not as good as the qc25/35 (which cancel almost everything out) but i didn’t want big over-ear ones and these were by far the best in-ear i have tried. I have used on aeroplanes, trains, buses, in the office and on the street and aside from the train they performed well without any issues. – comfortable ear buds – they really are spot on. Even just wearing them without any noise cancelling or music takes the edge off street sound. – build quality – the feel solidthings i don’t like:- the ‘popping’ particularly noticeable on trains. It’s quite annoying and i woudl have though that given the price and what most people will use these for this is a issue bose should have sorted. – the colour, the black and turquoise is a bit weird. My previous pair were back/white and black/grey would have been a but more understated.

After my husband raved about these and then my sister agreed i finally bit the bullet. Already had bose headphones and as there is nothing wrong with them could not see the point – that is until i used on a plane. We had a crying child for almost the entire flight and i was shocked when i turned the cancelling part off how loud the aircraft noise and child were. I actually fell asleep on both journeys which is a first. Another plus is the fact i have small ear canals and the small buds fit inside comfortably and stay put, the only downside is when my husband is using his it is difficult to get his attention and i am a little worried about the wire that connects to the device having to be constantly bent as so short. Hoping this will not be an issue in the long run.

I had been putting off buying these headphones for many months because i could not find any definitive information as to whether these were any good at reducing the noise of snoring. However, i was getting desperate because of so many sleepless nights. I contacted amazon and they confirmed that it would be ok to return them if necessary, even if i had tried them out. I therefore felt it was safe to take the plunge. I am so glad that i did as they are fantastic and i have not had a sleepless night since. When the noise cancelling is turned on, the snoring is eliminated almost 100% of the time. On the rare occasions when i notice it at all, the snoring volume is reduced by at least 90%. This is mainly due to the on-board electronics, but is certainly helped by how snugly the ear pieces fit into the ear canal. I cannot comment on how well these work compared to other bose models, but if you are ‘on the fence’ about buying these then i’d definitely say ‘go for it’.

I bought these in july 2017 and generally speaking they are great. They are very easy to wear and pass good quality sound from my iphone to my ears. Bose quietcomfort 20 acoustic noise cancelling headphones for apple devices (black)i have two issues that prevent me giving them five stars. The first is the small clip to attach the lead to your shirt, coat etc. , it broke within two weeks without me ever using it. I think that the spring inside is too strong and it just broke the very thin plastic. Full marks to amazon though, i asked if the clip could be replaced but they sent a complete new set of headphones that arrived within 24 hours. I do think that this is a design fault that bose should look at and i am fully expecting the replacement to break too. The attached photo is not the best quality but the item is so small it was difficult to focus on.

Great sound quality as expected. The sound cancelling is awesome.

After a disappointment with some b&o noise cancelling earphones (no replaceable parts) these areca perfect alternative. Comfortable in the ear, and noise cancelling that’s second to none (including the b&o).

I also like the support – they exchange the pair if anything. Wouldn’t buy a £200 pounds earphones. They are worth every penny ^^. I also like the support – they exchange the pair if anything happen within a year.

Great noise cancellation & sound quality. Bought for hubby who has been considering the expenses of bose for a while. I have cheaper alternatives and there is a noticeable difference.

Just wait till they go wrong and you can’t get them repaired. Excellent until they go wrong. My qc20is were 2 weeks out of the 2 year warranty when the right earpiece stopped working. Bose don’t repair them and although electronic partners sometimes can repair them, often the parts are not available so only buy them if you are only going to need them for 2 years.

Instantly transported to my “bose bubble”. ** these earphones are amazing and have made such a difference to my life. Having chronic pain has led me to be very sensitive to noise. Wearing normal earphones does not disguise outside noise and turning the volume up loud is not an option for me. * a friend of mine told me about these earphones and when i got over the initial shock of the price () i thought that these really could be fantastic for me. * they come boxed neatly in the manufacturers box which includes a bose carrying case (measures 5. 5 inches x 3 inches and zips up), a black usb cable (measures 30 inches in length), and 3 pairs of stay hear+ tips in small, medium and large (i chose small as they fit my ears the best), a black clothing clip – handy for securing the earphone lead when in use), warranty guide and instruction sheet. * the earphone lead is 52 inches which is a great length and the built in rechargeable lithium-ion battery measures 1. It does not weigh much and is very light. It is on this battery where you will find the power button – the first indicator is for on/off and will light up green when switched on. The second indicator is for the battery charge level and will light up green when charged and amber when it needs charged. Simply connect to computer using usb cable and wait until battery charge level indicates a green light then unplug. * i use these in bed for around 9 hours every night and there is still charge left in the morning.

They work but don’t expect miracles. . I was expecting total silence with the silence mode on. It does limit lot’s of background noise though. I’m using it in busy office and it does help me to focus better.

They are great although not as good as the over the ear. Purchased for use on flights, they are great although not as good as the over the ear type, they are so much easier to carry.

Great for travel – another excellent bose products. Excellent product – have bought bose products many times and always been very happy; this is no exception.

Can’t believe how good they are at blocking noise at least as good. Can’t believe how good they are at blocking noise at least as good as my quiet comfort 15s. I use them every day on the train and for conference calls and for music and listening they are great. There are three downsides they are useless outdoors in the wind in noise cancelling mode, the microphone is not up to the job and poorly positioned, and they can’t handle fast trains in tunnels (pops and distorts). One great advantage over the comfort 15s is you can use them without the noise cancelling turned on.

Brilliant sound for anyone who likes many different types of music, some will find them not bassy enough but that’s being picky, i’ve tried more expensive ones from sennhiser and shure but in my opinnion they’re only for audiophiles and lovers of classical music. Unless you spend thousands on speakers …
