About Bose

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.

About The Product

In-Ear 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.

Get Lost in the Music

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.

Tune in to the 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.

Lifelike Sound

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.

Innovative Ear Tip Technology

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.

Control at your Fingertips

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.

Rechargeable Battery

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.

I'll be quick because there are already so many reviews.

Positive points, about the noise cancelling per se
-----------------------------------------------------------------

You are here because you want noise cancelling. In this case put your mind at rest, buy these ones, stop reading reviews and move on with your life.
I've owned and extensively tried 8 different models of high end noise cancelling headphones. These ones are by far - I mean it, by far - the best.
Have a look at the measurements:
http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/travelers-sanctuary-bose-quiet-comfort-20-noise-canceling-earphone-measurements
http://stereos.about.com/od/StereoHeadphoneReviews/ss/Bose-Qc-20-Measurements.htm#step7
They achieve a -35db reduction in some frequencies, which is on par of the most isolating industrial ear protectors.
Subjectively, the effect is better than the QuietComfort 15 and 25, because having a shell around your ears produces a resonance chamber effect.
Also, the fact that they are so lightweight is a stark change after having used over-ear headphones for years.
The ear plugs are almost perfect, stable and comfortable.
Finally, and this is something that will interest who wants to use these headphones in a noisy office with lots of chatter, they are remarkably more effective at muffling the voices than the over-ear models.

General considerations as a headset
-------------------------------------------------

The core noise cancelling technology is very very good, there is little to no competition in the consumer market, but that is not enough to make a product that delights.

There are several serious design flaws here, that make using the headphones feel like a hack.

My mind is blown. tl;dr: these are the best earphones you will ever hear with amazing noise cancelling and bright, full spectrum audio but at a scary price.

I've got a pair of Bose over ear (non-noise-cancelling) headphones that I thought couldn't be surpassed in terms of audio quality in a quiet room. I'm now revising my opinion. I've always found in-ear-canal phones a bit uncomfortable and prone to either feeling like they're going to fall out or they're rammed in too tight and uncomfortable so I've never really invested heavily in them, preferring to just get by with them as a pocket solution when the big headphones would be too much. However, my cheap as chips ones broke the other day due to a pocket/bunch of keys interface problem.

As I type this review I am sat next to the washing machine on full spin and I can't hear it. At all. Like spookily cannot hear it. Even in the interlude between two songs just then, I can't hear it. Obviously if I strain to the very limits of my hearing I could just about make it out, but by make it out I mean at the barest whisper. Pull out an earplug and there it is. Put it back on and it's gone. I really am not exaggerating. It's reducing rather than drowning out the clatter of my computer keyboard as I type. The only sounds left are the very high trebles. Again, if I take out the plug it's instantly massively loud. I am testing them a little later next to the tumble dryer. To say this is a source of random clatter is an understatement. You can just about make it out if you listen for it but the reduction is profound even with such an extremely noisy and intrusive din.

I rarely write reviews, although I read lots of them. However, I have just tried out my Bose QC20's under my bike helmet. It was a bit of an expensive gamble but one I was prepared to take due to my ever increasing tinnitus caused by motorcycling for many years.
For a while now I've been using earplugs and the quietest helmet I could find (Schuberth C3 pro), but I missed my music.
First part of the gamble: will they fit under the lid - thankfully yes, and comfortably. So, I set off with the music playing and the noise suppression (not cancellation) switched OFF. I could hear the music comfortably alongside the sound of the engine and wind. All very acceptable. Then I turned them on and OMG, something that I have never experienced happened (please remember that I already own the QC15's over ear headphones). It was such a transformation that I couldn't quite believe it. The engine noise gone, wind noise gone, music quality increased 2 fold. I have never been in a motorcycling situation where it felt so bizarrely serene.

It's not often that experiences exceed my expectations, but this really has. I cannot think of any solution that could come close to this.
You don't need to play music, maybe you just want silence whilst you're riding - no problem switch music off and leave NC switched on.

It's strange but you are still aware of the important noise, more so than wearing earplugs so it's the best of all worlds.

If you can afford them, it would appear to be a no-brainer. Well done Bose.
