Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Headphones I have had these headphones almost a year now and they are by far the best headphones i have ever experienced. I have used them in the air, on the road, at sea, on a train, at the gym and in every scenario they perform elegantly, reducing the surrounding noise to allow you to focus on what you are listening to or watching. Yes the price is hefty, but they are worth every single penny. If you are looking for pure bass with poor acoustic and noise cancelling then you are probably best getting a pair of Dr Dre. If however, you are looking for a more rounded and pleasant experience while representing the bose logo then these are the ones for you. Noise leakage from these headphones is amazing, for the sound they produce, very little of it is wasted on the person sitting next to you. Overall I can't recommend these enough, and i'm sure the newer ones are even better! 20 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I'v had head phones in the past some good some very good, but i thought I would treat myself, The sound quality of these are excellent when you switch on the noise cancelling its like being in a sound both, I'm hearing sounds on my tunes that I never had before. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic!! Excellent product, the noise reduction is completely amazing and the fit is great too. I would thoroughly recommend them. 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bose Quiet Comfort noise cancelling over ear headphones I bought 2 pairs of these with a Belcker splitter for specifically my MacBookPro so my husband & I can listen together to music DVD etc,We are so pleased with them,we are old age pensioners in the 21st century!We used them on long haul flights to listen to entertainment on Virgin flights. They obliterate noise from engines & general cabin sounds,making a very undisturbed journey. The sound quality is excellent ,in fact better on MacBook Pro.Please note though that for safety reasons that if someone talks to you though you can hear them, this is a safety feature in case of emergency. They are very light indeed and comfortable & you do not get that awful teeth on edge feeling of foam earphones. It is useful to carry some spare batteries just in case inadvertently you forget to switch them off & battery has run down! The case to keep them in which is recommended so not to damage them is very good & placement of earphones easy & neat.It also has a zipped section for keeping the splitter,batteries etc.The flex is a very good length giving plenty leeway for from JL was excellent almost day after ordering.I would recommend these as we are very pleased indeed.Expensive may be but a very good product & so comfortable you can forget they are on your ears. 06 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing, you have to try them to believe the noise cancelling Very comfortable, amazing noise cancelling, finding where to attached the jacks wasn't intuitive, worth testing in store before buying 06 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Noise Cancelling excellence I have actually used these only at home so far to listen to TV in my own sound world!. They are comfortable, good sound range and certainly external noise reducing. Looking forward to trying them on board a flight to nod off or watch a movie. Need an AA battery for them to work, but they come in a neat storage case, so this is ideal to also keep a spare battery. 30 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable headphone. comfort, great sound, if the price is not a matter, this headphone will give you a moment. 22 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
