Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Ever since, Bose engineers have focused on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones.
Have more control over how you listen to your music in every environment, with Bose’s in-ear noise-cancelling headphones. Listen to your music with lifelike Bose sound and choose between full-on noise reduction to block out all environmental noise or the Aware Mode, which lets some of the outside world in. The QC20 headphones will keep you connected to the beat of your music and the pulse of what’s around you, no matter where you are.
Enjoy music on the go with the QC20 headphones. Experience realistic digital sound quality that stands out from the surrounding noise -- all with the freedom that an in-ear headphone offers. Acoustic Noise-Cancelling technology electronically reduces noise, while Bose’s proprietary StayHear+ tips physically block what's left. All that remains is you and your music, even in extremely loud surroundings.
Of course there are times when you may not want to cut yourself off from your environment, such as waiting for airline gate announcements or crossing a busy street. That’s where Bose’s Aware Mode comes in handy. Instead of having to take your headphones off, you can simply press a button and you're back in touch with the world. Meanwhile, your music keeps playing and you still get the benefit of some noise cancellation.
All this, plus the engaging sound you’ve come to expect from Bose. Active EQ and TriPort technologies work together to give your music the balance and depth that keep the soundtrack of your life sparklingly fresh. With subtle details that shine through. No matter where you are, your music will be at the heart of it all.
Not having to fuss with your headphones makes it all the easier to enjoy your music. Bose-own StayHear+ tips create a safe and comfortable fit, without having to force them into your ears. For maximum comfort, the mushroom shape distributes pressure evenly across the ear canal, creating a gentle seal that adds to the full-spectrum noise reduction of the headphones.
Enjoy control at the tips of your fingers. Simply use the slider switch on the control module to activate or deactivate the noise cancelling function. You’ll find the buttons for the Aware Mode, call answer/end and volume on the inline remote/microphone. The dual button remote (QC20 model) is designed for your Windows, BlackBerry or Android phone.
The built-in lithium-ion battery, which is located inside the module, is rechargeable. It charges in just two hours with the included USB cable, delivering up to 16 hours playing time per charge. The power status is displayed on the battery indicator light. What’s more, your music will continue to play with performance equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones even if the battery dies. Store your headphones and cables in the included carrying case when you’re not using them.

It works good on flight but however, when being used on a train, some popping... Read more

OK this is a fabulous product. The noise cancelling is magical. It cancels out a good 80% of the noise, and reduces the overall volume of background noise very significantly. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Chris M
