Why get Bose when you can get these?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goldring Ns1000 Expedition (Electronics)
This was the question that I asked my self. Was the extra for Bose worth it? The answer is no.
I tried a friend set of Bose QC and was so impressed that i decided I need some noise cancelers for plane journeys. I was scared off by the price so took a chance on these. Initial impressions were not great when they showed only a little improvement when running a vacuum cleaner. However, after a 6 hour flight of film and TV watching I was impressed. The volume level was set at 2 out of 10, where as it would be 5 or 6 with the airline supplied headphones. Having said that the performance is comparable to noise isolating ear buds.
If you are considering the oer ear style headphones I think these are just as good any and alot less expensive than some, although the performance is not much better than correctly fitted ear buds.
