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.

The battery life is very impressive and as long as you charge up before hand you are unlikely to have them run out.
Overall a fantastic pair of headphones that combines the brilliant sound quality you come to expect of bose with active noise cancellation that'll knock your socks off!
1. Compact and easily usable outside when walking the dogs etc.
2. Sound quality cannot be faulted in my experience - either 'music or spoken-word'.
3. Sound cancelling works even better than the Bose 'over-ear' headphones in the house and outside. I haven't tried them on an aeroplane as yet but I anticipate a perfectly good experience.
4. For the cost I would have wished for a slightly larger storage pouch and possibly a 'hard shell' one. If the latter became available I would buy it - take note Bose.
5. A word of warning - I found the sound cancelling so efficient it was difficult to hear motor vehicles approaching from behind as I walked the dogs - so, I switch s/c off at this time with little effect on sound quality.
Put Palladio by Escala on the iPhone and let it run for the first minute and then I flipped the noise cancelling switch on. What sounded pretty flat but just about listeneable, was totally transformed! The ambient noise all but vanished and the sound quality was transformed. Good meaty bass, mid and top was very good. They are not perfect in comparison to a quality full set of headphones but they do a great job if you don't want to go to the gym with cyberman head gear.
Now need to book a trip away to see how good they are on a plane.
Bose are not cheap but they are a premium product. You do get what you pay for.
My concerns that they might be uncomfortable to wear were unfounded, on a 14 hour flight I was plugged in 95% of the time, and had no issues.
The power block is a bit of a pain, but once you get used to tucking it behind your iPhone before popping it in your pocket, you're good to go. Battery life is good (approx 12 hours heavy use), and it also charges super fast (approx 1-2 hours).
In conclusion; as someone who releases music, if I was in a jam or producing on the fly, I wouldn't be too panicked if for some reason I had to use these as a point of reference. They are wonderfully balanced, well made, and as far as the technology currently goes, the noise cancellation is top notch. Just remember though, they are not going to completely cut out all sound around you. If you want that the tech isn't there yet.

Great on long haul flights when you want to sleep, or simply on the tube.
