Q & As


Bose® QuietComfort® Noise Cancelling® QC15 Over-Ear Headphones 4.9 5 33 33
Fantastic product Just returned from 6 week world wide trip incorporating 8 flights and delighted to report that the headphones are amazingly efficient. I was slightly sceptical when I first got them and it wasn't until I had done my first flight from LHR to SIN that I realised how incredible they are. Extremely comfortable to wear, blocks out almost all cabin/engine noise, far superior to other noise cancelling ones in Business on SIA. Cons- hard to hear cabin crew talking to you and the bulky carry box. Very small niggles compared to huge advantages. Thank you Bose. 17 March 2014
Bose Noise Cancelling QC15 headphones Bought this product to use specifically for a long distance flight to New Zealand. The noise of the aeroplane is very uncomfortable as it fights with the tinnitus in one of my ears. The Bose headphones were very comfortable to wear, especially as they totally covered my ears, the background noise of the plane was almost eliminated but I could still hear (reduced volume) when an announcement was broadcast by the crew. Excellent sound quality when watching films and listening to music on the journey. Bit difficult to sleep in them on the plane but that's not surprising, not what they're designed for! Battery life is 40 hours so I put a new battery in before I left LA on the way home as by that time I'd clocked up about 35 hours of flying. Good strong carrying case too. Bit expensive but worth it. They were recommended to me by a family member and I would recommend them to others. 11 March 2014
Great sound, excellent noise cancellation...Does exactly what it says on the.. cans... !!! Everything about the design and quality of this product is great. I like my tech and spend a lot of time evaluating and trying before purchasing, then and only then, when I am happy, will I go all in. These are not a small investment, but in my eyes, worth every penny. They come with a well designed case, a standard lead and a second to cater for IPAD users, like myself, with volume controls at neck level on the lead itself. The headphones benefit from having, not just the interchangeable leads, but also from the noise cancelling circuitry, powered by an easily accessible regular battery within one of the ear cans. I have tried these with the Bose environment tester, replicating the noise of aircraft drone, quite impressive, even without music playing; noise cancellation still suppresses the ambient sound level very well. The quality of the sound in general is very good and with the addition of the Noise cancellation, completes the whole experience. The cans are comfortable, light, but firm and sit well on a range of head sizes (lots of people have asked to try them) and have enough in the way of volume and range to satisfy most users. If you want tech that fits, works well and looks good, these are for you. Ask me how I know, easy, because these are for me. 25 February 2014
Great quality product Excellent noise cancelling, superb sound reproduction, and very comfortable. 25 February 2014
Very good product Fantastic noise reduction. I travel a lot and these are first class on the plane. 18 February 2014
Great Headphones I bought these as I always wanted a pair of Bose Headphones turned up earlier than I expected, great fit and sound quality didn't realise at first they didn't work without turning on the noise cancelling option but as I was using that feature alot it doesn't bother me. I would definitely recommend these. 04 February 2014
Amazing clarity I've had a lot of hi-fi and tried a number of top headphones on over the years, I was just browsing in John Lewis with iPod in pocket and decided to try these. The first thing that strikes you is the stability, clarity and total lack of colour to the sound - it's like being there with the performer. Sound cancelling was a secondary thing to the sound quality but is extremely effective. Some Bose stuff seems pricey for what it does but these really do deliver in spades - you will not be disappointed if you buy them. 22 January 2014
Amazing sound! I bought these headphones for my husband for Christmas. He is so pleased with them. The sound quality is superb! 21 January 2014
