The best sound system for motorcycling.

By Randall

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I bought the QC20 headset for use with my iPhone. The noise cancelling makes it much easier to hear the voice on the other end. When I wore them inside my motorcycle helmet for music, it was amazing. I can actually enjoy quality listening while riding. I bought my wife a pair, and we listen together while we ride. We enjoy riding together just that much more because of the music, and it has been very much worth it for us.

One star missing for the following reason

By Itsmejb

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I have owned these since they came out and overall am very happy with them. Prior to the in ear version I have owned two versions of the over ear. My biggest complaint is the lack of an extra large ear tip. Part of the noise cancellation requires a tight seal in the ear and for those of us with larger ear canals the large size tip is not enough, I have asked technical support for an extra large ear tip but to no avail. Thus the missing star. Make an extra large ear tip and I will add the last star in. Happy to pay for it,

excellent product!

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I don't know what the reviewer who gave this a 1 star for not being noise cancelling is talking about. I cannot hear my wife tv in the same room. When we are traveling and one of us snores, I won't say who, I put in one ear and turn on the power ( no music or sound), and sleep like a baby. Today on the airplane, it was a pleasure not to hear the screaming kids! We bought each of our adult sons one for Christmas. I love these headphones.

Best noise cancellation - better than QC25 IMO

By kekiwill

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

There is no question Bose is the leader in noise cancellation technology. Once I knew that, the question was either the QC20s or QC25s. I debated about that for three months. The QC25 has a great in finish and looks awesome but the versatility of the QC20s is much better; the noise cancellation, the relative small footprint and the respectable sound quality has made the QC20i the winner IMO. Noise cancellation is better. I took my QC20i and tested against 2 QC25's in 2 different retailers. The QC20's was able to mute voices around and background noises noticeably better. I guess sound is better in QC25s given the larger driver (I assume this since i own the bose soundlink II around ear). But for travelling and cancelling noise purposes the QC20 is the pick out of the two. No doubt.

OMG, The Best in-ear Headphones EVER !!!!

By fit4life

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I am a 50 year old female who has enjoyed listening to music since the 80's era when music was music. I have owned Bose products for many years. My 3 desktop computers each have Bose speakers. I have Bose mini wifi speakers and my tv has the Bose sound system. I own 3 over the ear Bose headphones and now I own these. I have ordered 3 more sets, one for my 13 years old daughter and 2 for my work office and for my carry-on luggage bag. Yes, they are expensive but Bose has always made their products with the best technology which allows us customers to enjoy music they way it is meant to be heard.

Next mid cycle refresh hopefuls

By TitaniumSpecial

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

Excellent product operates as described. My upgrade request or feedback.: 1. Electronic feedback comes through male connector plug in various situations when not connect to music just noise cancellation. When battery is fully charged noise begins or when male connector touches other items. 2. The on lighting diodes are too bright for when used for sleeping. 3. The cord is to short near battery and male connector. nothing can compare to Bose noise cancellation. Comfort rating while side sleeping poor.

Simply the best value

By Kerouanton

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I own 2 pairs, they are just perfect for travelling, commuting, and sound is great. Much more convenient to carry everywhere than larger traditional noise-cancelling headphones. I always have a pair with me in my bag. Great work, Bose !

Perfect for riding

By Cafrey

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I travel a lot with my bike and the noise cancelling feature in this earphone works perfectly to quiet down the wind noise inside the helmet. Really, even when you use open-face helmet. It's like magic! I live in Brazil and bought it one year ago, I use it a lot and it's still like brand-new. Congratulations Bose!

So worth the money!

By mja

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I bought this earphones (QC20i) after suggestion of one of my colleagues and as everyone is aware price is not cheap. But so wort the money! Honestly best thing I bought for long haul flights, working in an open office environment and whenever you need to turn surrounding noise off and simply focus without losing music quality. It does magic! I simply love to use it on plane, and they are easy to sleep with since they are buds I they are not falling off each time I turn my head. I would definitely recommend this to anyone! My only wish is that cord between mic and phone is bit longer.

Too good not to give 5 stars but quibble with case

By Marie

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Earbud Headphones:

I had previously owned the original QC2s and found them to work very well, but after losing them a few times on the airplane I decided to stop buying expensive headphones and looked for a less expensive option. I found a pair of noise cancelling earbud headphones that cost less then my QC2s, didn't work as well, but were more comfortable to sleep in or rest one's head and began to wish for Bose to develop and sell noise cancelling earbud style headphones. And now they have and while they've been out for a while now and the price has been a issue. But since I've flown a lot of miles and I had a multi-city trip with 6 flights and little sleep coming up I gave in and purchased the latest series QC20s for the iPhone/iPad. I was instantly happy remembering that like the old Rolls-Royce slogan that quality remains long after the price is forgotten. The QC20s work so much better than the ones I had been using after losing my cherished QC2s. The amount of quiet on the plane is almost breathtaking. Of course they aren't silent - and I understand why. But the noise cancelling actually had me feeling joy while riding on the plane and looking out the window feeling "this is what flying can be like!" They are comfortable, if a bit odd looking with the little "Spok ears" sticking up. Here are my quibbles: Like others I wish the cord from the battery to the plug were longer (or had extended included) My original QCs came with accessories and wonderful case as befitted the price. The QC20 don't even come with an airplane adapter let alone extended length cables. The case, while conveniently compact, could be a tad bigger and stiffer to fit accessories and headphones better. I wish the volume control worked on regular, non-iProduct inputs as well. Final note: I can't believe I waited as long as I did to finally get the QC20s but I am very happy I have them now and look forward to my next flight.
