Check Out The Bose Quiet Comfort 15

  1. 1. You Love Your Music But Is Irritated By External Noise? Check Out The Bose QuietComfort 15!Some of us just love our music. As such we sometimes get annoyed when we go into anenvironment that is very nosy and we do not have any control over the noise that isinterrupting us from our listening pleasure.If you are one of those, then you should absolutely check out the Bose QuietComfort 15 noisecancelation headphones. The Bose QuietComfort 15 is truly outstanding. Here some ownersshare with you their experience with the Bose QC15.5.0 out of 5 stars I didnt know I needed this…By K. Daejin (Chicago, IL)The last time I tried Noise Reduction headphones, it was over a decade ago. They werepointless then and I never gave it a second thought. But that was then. Things have changed.These headphones are amazing, but these arent for everyone. Who should buy these? Peoplethat are easily irritated by random noises, ambient noise, that kind of thing. Whats that?

  2. 2. my list, Id put in dog barks, refrigerator hums, bathroom pipes, passing cars, wind and rain,etc. Im very sensitive to noise. I bought a wall clock specifically without a ticking noisebecause it drives me insane.A couple months ago, some dude moved into a nearby apartment unit. Hes got some kind ofaffliction that is a cross between emphysema and tourettes syndrome. Hell make some sortof "Hnnghh!" sound every minute or so right out his window. This goes on all day and allnight and for someone like me who is easily annoyed; it can make a muhfuh go postal.Now, Im a headphone nerd. Ive got a Sennheiser HD-650, a Denon AH-D2000, tried all theupper-middle class Beyerdynamics, Audio Technicas and what have you. Hows this sound inrelation to the grade A audiophile headphones? The sound signature on these is a bit lessbassy than your average Bose product. If I use bass boost on my iPod Touch, it sounds aboutright. It doesnt compete with my HD-650 or D2000 and you should not buy these if all youwant is great music.You should buy this if you cant stand stupid little distracting noises that drive you up thewall. Have ADHD? This is the headphone for you. You can turn it on (one AAA non-rechargeable battery) and let noise cancelling work. You can detach the wire so that nothingis in your way if you just really want to get work done. Im studying for the BAR Exam andlittle noises can derail an entire day.You might be saying to yourself that you can just use earplugs instead of spending $300. Andyou can. Ive used earplugs for the last few years. These QuietComfort 15 headphones are somuch more comfortable, they block more noise, and you can actually put on music if youwant. Its one of those things that you didnt know you needed until you have it. Youll alsonotice how you can leave the volume very low on your music player because theres no needto drown out extraneous ambient noise. The Quiet Comfort 15 is the perfect headphone forpeople with tinnitus.Now, the aesthetics. Lets face it, these look like garbage. Whos the kind of person thatthinks these look good? Look at the stock photo. Those are the people. No style, no taste.People who collect glass figurines. Those people. So this purchase is going to strictly be autilitarian one. Yes, it looks like crap. But more importantly, it neutralizes noise. My God, itsabout as close as you can get to enjoying the silence of the night desert while living in theheart of a downtown metropolis.If youre OCD about noise, if youre the kind of person who stays up all night on the internetand cant get to sleep for stupid reasons, if refrigerator buzzing, laundry and dishwashercycles, passing cars bug you more than it does other people, then look no further. Sell yourkidney on the black market and get these ugly headphones.EDIT: December 12, 2011One thing that bummed me out about these was the lack of bluetooth. I turned these into a Page 2 of 6
  3. 3. bluetooth model by ordering a Jabra Clipper. Ive use the excess wire to wrap the Clipperagainst the headband and now Im completely wireless. It pairs perfectly with my MacBookAir 2011 model. No issues whatsoever. I also have a Lenovo x120e, but it cuts outintermittently on that notebook. Dont know if its a Windows 7 issue or a Lenovo issue. IPodTouch works without issue as well.Just a little FYI if you want to go bluetooth wireless. I imagine youre not limited to the JabraClipper. It should work with other devices like the Sony Ericsson MW600, but I cant vouchfor solid pairing.What other owners thought of their Bose QuietComfort 15.5.0 out of 5 stars Life-changing noise-cancellingBy Amy Alkon "the_advice_goddess" (Santa Monica, CA)I got these Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones strictly for their jerk-cancelling properties andthey are a life-changer.In addition to the chainsaw or other construction noises that begin and end precisely in thetime I have to take my nap on my deadline days, my neighborhood frequently has people whopark in it, right outside our houses, or not even that close, and play that annoying low bass ontheir car stereos, with their windows open, for all to hear.I like to joke that I am only hostile, not violent, but this can make me feel homicidal, havingthis thump-thump-thump attack my existence. One should reasonably be able to presume thatthe sounds they hear in their house are house sounds and not the house-foundation-shakingstylings of "Eff Da Ho." These QuietComfort 15 headphones are incredible -- from what Iveseen in reviews on the web, the best there is -- and make that a reality.Thank you, thank you, Dr. Bose!5.0 out of 5 stars lets add another positive review.By RichlaIf I round the numbers slightly, there are six hundred reviews for these headphones. Fourhundred rate these as "five star" and one hundred more rate them as "four star", and of coursethe remaining hundred are all over the place.So, am I going to add anything that hasnt been said before? I doubt it.Still, I like to do a review if I really love or really hate a product, and I love theseheadphones. Page 3 of 6
  4. 4. Recently, my job requires travel every month or two. I had a pair of $50-$75 dollar "noisecanceling" (ha!) headphones. I would sit on a flight, miserable, because the sound quality washorrible and the "noise canceling" was barely detectable, really nothing more than a crueljoke. I use to try to offset the noise onboard by boosting the volume, thinking "great, now Illdamage my hearing". And if I switched to acoustic or classical music, I simply could not hearwhat I was listening too.I really love to listen to music, but $300 on headphones specifically for travel, is not in mybudget, so I was committing to suffering in flight, with bad sound and a lot of backgroundnoise, while I stared at my fellow passengers with envy, as they enjoyed music and videos inflight, thanks to their Bose headphones.Fortunately, a family member gave me these as a gift a couple of months ago. Wow. Whenyou open these up, you cant help but be impressed with the packaging and the neat carry casethey come in, really nice quality.I spent a night listening to these at home and I really loved them. I have to admit, I do notown any high end audiophile headphones, but I thought these sounded real nice: balancedsound, crisp middles, full bass. But not overpowering. Even in a home, the sound of the TV,refrigerator running, things you never really think about, just disappear.But how would they be on a plane?? Lets just say that now I can fully enjoy my music. All ofmy music. From Hendrix to Bach. In fact, I have Paul Gailbraith on my iPod, who playsbeautiful solo classical guitar. Some of his recordings capture his breathing, and the soundreally drives some people crazy. I hear it as well, but it doesnt bother me. These headphonesare so clear, even on board the flight, his breathing was crystal clear and that might not soundlike much, but after a year and half of lousy sound quality on board a plane, I am a real happyguy.I do think the noise "canceling" implies that all the background noise disappears. It doesnt.But most of it does and the clear sound quality makes up for a slight "hiss" of airplaneengines you may hear if you have NO music playing. Put on some music, and that too, goesaway.By the way, if you are stuck with hours to kill in an airport, rather than listening to nonstopPA announcements, pull out these headphones, put on some great music and work on yourlaptop or just relax for a bit, you can easily shut out the world around you, and that alone isworth $300. Happy customer? You better believe it. Last week I think I wore these for a fullday on planes and at the airports and I hated to take them off when it was time to descend,etc.If you are in a noisy environment, I do not think you can beat this noise canceling feature andthe quality of the sound.

  5. 5. 5.0 out of 5 stars Phenominal sound isolation, greatsound, comfortable.By Ali Julia (boston, mass)We purchased Bose® QuietComfort Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headphones in Bose storein (no-sales-tax) New Hampshire so we can try them out. The prices for Bose headphones welooked at are exactly the same in the store as they are on Amazon. For the bargain hunters thestore also sells returned models at a $40 discount. The sales clerk told us that they areinspected and tested to perform as new.We compared two models Bose QuietComfort 15 and Bose QuietComfort 3. The two modelswere displayed together (Bose QuietComfort 3 is $50 more expensive). The displayed madeus think that they might be similar. Bose QuietComfort 3 are lighter and do not cup the earsas well. As the result they did not perform as well.The headphones felt very comfortable to both of us, both of us got a nice fit without anyadjustments. I did not feel my head was squeezed like with some other headphones. Headsetcord is detachable if you want just noise cancellation you can remove the cord. Theheadphones come with a case to protect headphones while you travel.WHITE NOISE-----------The store has a set up that allows you to test the headphone in a noisy environment thatsimulates the airplane noise.Bose QuietComfort 15 - fantastic, totally blocks the soundBose QuietComfort 3 - could still hear it somewhatCheck out this link for a comparison between the Bose QuietComfort 15 vs 3.VOICE-----------I have tried Bose QuietComfort five-six years ago to see if I can cut out human voices for anoisy cube farm environment at work. But back then the I could hear the voices better withthe headphones on then with the headphone off as the white noise cancelation made themmore clear. This time when I put them on and asked my husband to speak to me I heardnothing just saw his lips moving. I actually thought he was playing a practical joke on me,and quickly lifted the headphone to catch him in his prank. But no, he was actually speaking.I ask the sales clerk about this dramatic improvement, and she said that human voices aremuch harder to block as their range is less predictable but Bose have made someimprovements in this area. However Bose still does not advertise the headphones as voicecanceling headphones as some voices may not be canceled as well. Page 5 of 6
  6. 6. Bose QuietComfort 15 - excellent, some voices cannot hear at all, others are very muffledBose QuietComfort 3 - could still hear voiceMUSIC-----------Bose QuietComfort 15 - phenomenal at all ranges, best sound I ever heard in headphonesBose QuietComfort 3 - ok, the sound not as richBATTERY:-----------Bose QuietComfort 15 - standard AAA battery, 35 hours on play on one chargeBose QuietComfort 3 - rechargeable Li-ion battery, 25 hours of play on one chargeBose QuietComfort 15 headphones were a clear winner in each category. When I recentlyasked my husband if he has been using his new headphones a lot, he said he loves them butdoes not use them while he works as he cannot hear the phone. Funny, the phenomenal soundisolation at work!Click on the button below to buy the Bose QuietComfort 15. Page 6 of 6
