    Amazing Earphones

    • Written by from Cupertino

    I wanted to cut the noise of public transportation, but I did not want to carry large headphones. I also did not want to compromise the sound of the extensive music collection on my iPhone 6. The QuietComfort 20i accomplish this beyond my expectations. The sound quality is outstanding. The noise cancelation even works without music. Just turn them on and the ambient noise goes away. Highly Recommended!

    Could Be Five Stars Easily

    • Written by from APO

    First... Awesome. They work! Nine and half hour flight to Germany and back and I could not be happier. Battery lasted the entire flight. The headset was comfortable except for the cord length. I also use the 20i's at the gym. They stay put. Again very comfortable. Almost too comfortable. They sit very "light" in my ears. However, the cord length from the "Y" is too short and can't be adjusted. The audio jack end also has the small flat and thin NC electronics module with not much cord. Because the cord is so short the module dangles in my hand as I am trying to text or take notes on my iPhone. Just a few more inches of cord on both ends would have helped the 20i's garner a solid five stars. While running and working-out the short cord length twists and tightens pulling on each ear piece. Even with the cord clamp fixed to your shirt. While stationary you don't really notice the short cord length, however, with each cord coming from the earbuds tend to ride on the side of your face. Not really noticeable accept in prolonged use (like a mentioned in the opening). The audio performance was great using both my iPhone and the Delta 767 audio port.

    Amazing Headphones

    • Written by from Oxford

    I bought these headphones when they first came out, and I am in love with them. Great Bose quality, shows the 25 years of experience. Only complaint that I did go through 5 pairs in a few months because of the cord coming out of the battery pack. Bose was great about it though they have a great warranty and sent me new ones when mine would break no questions asked. I say that but they are durable headphones they only break when the cord would get caught on something when I was walking a door handle for example. Overall great headphones!

    Amazing PEACE of Mind

    • Written by from San Jose

    I live in a noisy apartment. Since Bose is known for acoustic excellence, I decided to try out the QC-20i. The price is high though worth every cent. After purchasing these, the moment I flipped the ANC switch, my noisy neighbors vanished. This alone is worth substantially more than what I spent on these. Music sounds excellent as you'd expect with Bose; ANC is a bit flaky in that it impacts sound quality slightly though Bose has done better than anyone else is minimizing this impact. The PEACE of mind the QC-20i's provide me with from the urban sprawl I live in makes these one of the best investments since I moved here 5 years ago. Finally PEACE and QUIET when I want it!

    Noise cancelling is fantastic! If you travel a lot, these babies are for you, they will take care of annoying jet engine hum.

    Top notch

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    These are fantastic noise canceling in ear headphones. I fly a lot for work and it drowns out the drone noise of the jet engines. Keep up the quality product producing, Bose.

    Clearly overpriced

    • Written by from Menlo Park

    I bought these after reading all the positive reviews. However, after trying them for several hours, I took them back to the store. I really don't like that ear plug feeling, and the noise quality is not what you would expect for this price.

    A little disappointed

    • Written by from calgary

    I got this because there were many positive reviews for this headphone.
    Especially regarding noise cancellation.
    I tried it at the store and it felt good for those couple of seconds.
    When I actually got my pair, I really feel that it's overrated.
    It's not that comfortable because my ear can feel the pressure, it's the feeling of an ear plug.
    I really don't like that ear plug feeling.
    In a quiet room with air ventilation, it is possible to hear this dull weird hiss.
    You can still hear yourself typing, other music playing as well as other voices.
    I found review saying that this earphone does not work with wind, I haven't tried it personally.
    I will test this for a couple more days, may end up returning this.

    Depends on what you want

    • Written by from Revensdorf

    I've owned and regularly used all of the Bose noise-cancelling headphones and recently got myself a pair of the QC 20i's. What can I say? If you are looking for something really small with decent sound quality and good noise-cancellation, these will be the ones to go for. I really like the design of all of the current Bose in-ear headphones, you hardly notice that you are wearing them at all and the earbuds don't have any tendency to fall out of the ear. Of course, due to the size of these babies, there are some drawbacks as far as the degree of noise-cancellation and sound quality goes, so these things will always be a compromise between the size and the sound quality. If you are into really great noise-cancellation and superior sound, get a pair of QC 15's, in that respect, they are much better than the QC 20's. If your main concern is size, the QC 20's are for you.

    Did you say something ??

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    I'll start saying that this is really a fantastic pair of earphones.
    The sound quality is amazing, Bose really did a great job. The fit in the ear is amazing, without pressure, it's really comfortable. (I was worried because I could not try these)
    The Aware Mode is also very good, forget the problem with putting and taking your phones off when someone talks to you.
    And now for the star of the show, the Active noise canceling technology. SUPERB ! Absolutely fantastic. A really happy costumer here.
    I've bought these thinking that I would return, but it's worth the price. It's amazing !
    PS : Bose solved the problem of the other phones, If it runs out of battery, you can still listen to your music !

    This is the one to get. Period!

    • Written by from SAINT PETERSBURG

    I have the QC-15s and the only reason I had not used them more regularly is simple- bulk. With the 20i you have a package that literally will go with you anywhere and performance that is 95% of what the 15's provide. No question the price is also top of the line. However, in this case, it is completely worth it.

    Blown Away!!!

    • Written by from Saint Robert

    I haven't had these that long, but I have to say my first impressions are that they are absolutely amazing headphones! The sound quality is unlike anything I have ever heard out of a set of in-ear headphones. I purchased these as replacements for what I was using because I wanted better sound quality, a snugger fit, comfort, and of course the noise cancelling ability. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the noise cancelling feature worked, but even without it turned on, the QC20i's still provide the wearer an auditory experience worth the cost. The sound produced by these headphones is out of this world! There is plenty of deep, rich bass when there needs to be, but also crystal clear mid and high notes. My only complaint is that I didn't purchase these sooner.

    Amazing Earphones

    Bought these from a Bose store in the states and they haven't missed a beat, literally. The sound is great and the noise cancelling amazing, easily comparable to any over ear competitor if not better. Love and use them everyday.
