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.
