The slate/brown Limited EditionQuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones are the best performing headphones from Bose. Significant advances in noise reduction make these the quietest Bose headphones ever. Advanced electronics use microphones both inside and outside each ear cup to sense and reduce more of the sounds around you. So you hear even less noise, and even more of your music and movies - with the quality sound you expect from Bose.

QuietComfort 15 headphones also feature Bose proprietary ear cushion technology that further reduces unwanted noise. The cushion materials block noise before it enters the ear cups, delivering a quiet listening experience and a comfortable fit.

Enjoy quality sound - including deep low notes - from small, lightweight ear cups made possible by proprietary signal processing and audio reproduction technology. You enjoy well-balanced and detailed audio, all made clearer by advanced noise reduction.

Even when not listening to music, you can use these headphones to quickly leave the noise behind - and relax. And the additional cable with inline remote and microphone lets you conveniently control volume/track selection/voice applications for select Apple products - and lets you take calls on your iPhone with one-touch ease.

When you listen to music at home or at work, fewer distractions get in the way. When you fly, engine roar fades even further away. Less noise, acclaimed lifelike sound, a fit that stays comfortable for hours and the quality you expect from Bose. It all adds up to a combination of benefits unmatched in the industry.

Quality audio performance from the TriPort acoustic headphone structure, available only from Bose that features tiny vents in the ear cups to enable a balanced audio performance from small, lightweight headphones
Significantly improved noise reduction across a wider range of frequencies, compared to previous QuietComfort headphones
Proprietary Bose innovations use microphones both inside and outside each ear cup to sense and reduce the sounds around you
Comfortable around-ear cushions use a proprietary soft-cushion design to establish a critical acoustical seal between the ear cups and your head, enhancing the benefits of Bose noise reduction headphone technology while helping to deliver a quality audio performance
Additional cable with inline remote and microphone to control volume/track selection/voice applications for select Apple products
AAA battery provides an average 35 hours of playing time (battery included)
Fold-flat ear cups rotate 90° for easy storage and portability in the included case
Small, slim carrying case helps protect headphones and accessories during travel
Single, detachable audio cable for greater convenience than standard dual-cable designs
Remove the cable for noise reduction only - to add audio, simply connect the cable

      This is my third set, not because the others were worn out or broken, but because my dog chewed one and my absconded with another. I love 'em, flight attendants hate them (they make it tougher to communicate with dozing passengers). I prefer the over-ear design as they're more comfortable on long flights. Battery life is quite good - I've never gotten less than the advertised 30 hours. Sound quality is fantastic - great bass. My only complaints are more suggestions - need a lapel clip for the microphone accessory and wish I could figure out a way to fall asleep on the plane without knocking them off (if you turn your head too much, the "seal" over your ear dislodges and the noise reduction quality is lost). The plethora of adapters provided is a nice bonus, though they need to come up with a better engineering solution to keep them all together. The case is great too!

      Sound quality is amazing! Just not loud enough.
      I love the design, I love the feel, they are so comfortable and so beautiful, and the in-line mic, is flawless, the other called does not hear background noise but only my voice even when I'm in noisy environments, and the noise cancelation is absolutely amazing! BUT! They are not loud, and that is so sad and also the reason I gave it 2 stars. I tried a friends similar headphones and they were 3 uv levels louder. I can't feel the music if I can't put the volume up to jam! Not all the time I listen to loud music, but sometimes there are songs that you just have to! And with my friend's headphones, the magic happens, and they're the same price! So I have to return these even though I love everything else about them.

        Comments about Bose Limited Edition QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (Slate/Brown):

        I was very skeptical about spending the money on a pair of headphones. Once I heard the quality of the sound and comfort of the headphones, I wish I would have purchased them a long time ago. I would buy another pair today if these broke.

            I just started using these but so far am completely happy with them, especially the ability to change how much muting with the switch on the ear piece. I us it for some road travel because of sensitive hearing and on airplanes. Listening to music is a treat on them.

                          These headsets have been on my 'must have' bucket list for years and because of the price tag, I hadn't bought them. Finally, I caved in and as I had imagined, well worth every cent. It saves the day for any traveler like myself, especially when on a bus ride through latin america for 8 hours with blaring Reggaeton music pumping through oversized speakers. The sound quality while listening to music and video on my 14 hour flight to singapore was was superb. I often use them when i have a snooze on the go just to 'silence' any outside noise as im a light sleeper. Now the small negative for me as a traveler is the size but to get all that goodness you get the size.

                            I take care of things, and so I hope they last a long time. What does tend to fray are cables and ear cups on these headphones. The headphones themselves are amazing. Great sound (way better than the Beats by Dr. Dre), good base, excellent noise cancelation. But buying a replacement audio cable is a nightmare for someone who uses these headphones every day. You either have to order online and wait, or you have to find a Bose store in your neighbored. Why [*], [*], or any other major electronic store doesn't stock cables and ear cups baffles me. Plus they're thirty bucks each. So to tune up the headphones and get them feeling nice and working again, it cost seventy or so dollars... I was none to happy about it.

                              I had the headphones turned on, listening at a fairly moderate volume, not too loud, and asked my wife to talk to me. She was 5 feet away. She was going on and on. I couldn't hear a thing! It looked like she was just mouthing the words.
                              Buy these! Looking forward to trying them on an airplane next month. They're not the cheapest, just the best, and extremely comfortable.

                                    I tried a bunch of lower end NC headphones to little satisfaction. I finally coughed up for the Bose because it was on sale. The difference is massive. And I love it!

                                      This is my third set, not because the others were worn out or broken, but because my dog chewed one and my absconded with another. I love 'em, flight attendants hate them (they make it tougher to communicate with dozing passengers). I prefer the over-ear design as they're more comfortable on long flights. Battery life is quite good - I've never gotten less than the advertised 30 hours. Sound quality is fantastic - great bass. My only complaints are more suggestions - need a lapel clip for the microphone accessory and wish I could figure out a way to fall asleep on the plane without knocking them off (if you turn your head too much, the "seal" over your ear dislodges and the noise reduction quality is lost). The plethora of adapters provided is a nice bonus, though they need to come up with a better engineering solution to keep them all together. The case is great too!

                                        I've owned numerous headphones in the past, but none like these. The noise cancellation is very good and I can wear them for extended periods of time without my ears hurting. When connected to my iPod, the sound is crisp, clean, and has a very nice range and tonal balance. Bose has a good reputation and now I know why.

                                        I've been meaning to buy his for years but more recently I've been waiting for a wireless version. Unfortunately, there has been one mentioned for release.

                                        With this exception, I watched a movie last night in my kitchen with my two you kids screaming and running around me. Thank you Bose as I could barely hear them! The sound quality was great and the noise reduction was better.

                                        My own other criticism is that I thought these limited editions would be darker. The black sides are actually charcoal and the leather is much lighter.

                                        Outside of this, I will definitely keep these for my personal use. Also, I had a pair of Panasonic NC before. They were good but these are great!

                                          Pros: Excellent noise cancelation. Sound quality is acceptable(above average). Cons: Build quality is very plasticky, and it is not professional grade level built at the price above $250. Sony headphone sold at Costco has better built quality. So, I give 3 stars.Conclusion: If you are in noisy environment, this headphone is for you. I work in the noisy environment, and it fits my usage.
