The blue QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones from Bose feature proprietary ear cushion technology that creates a critical acoustical seal to dampen ambient sound. Microphones inside and outside each earcup reduce noise further by detecting and phase-eliminating any sound that differs from what you're listening to. These advanced electronics are able to provide full-spectrum noise reduction, creating the quietest Bose headphones yet.

The QC15 headphones feature proprietary signal processing and a TriPort acoustic structure to create a lifelike listening experience. If you want all the quiet without the music, the Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology can function on its own. Find some peace of mind within the QC15's small, lightweight earcups.

The QC15 headphones include two interchangeable audio cables; one with an iOS mic/remote and an additional plain audio cable.

      I travel a decent amount and also enjoy silence to concentrate when I'm studying at home or work.

      I was lucky enough to be on the market for a set of Noise Cancelling headphones when the Limited edition Blue version came onto the market. It's a nice change from the standard silver model. The carry case also seems to be a bit sturdier... bonus! Mechanically, they're the same however- which is fine!

      These headphones, dare I say are a must have for frequent travellers. With Active Noise Cancelling on, engine and other ambient noise subsides dramatically. With an Audio source such as music on, you'll be hard pressed to hear voices (or crying babies). One word of warning- you may miss the in flight food service with these headphones on.

      I initially ummed at the cost but when you're travelling, you can't but a dollar figure on a decent sleep or even just a quieter environment.

      I'm also a bit of an audiophile. I love quality sounding music with solid detail and a great sound stage..
      The detail on the QC15's is decent but not on par with a set of high end Sennheiser, Grado or other Audiophile headphones. Sound stage on these headphones is quite good. The detail is decent but the bass is a bit on the sloppy side- no real issue there though. Mid's to highs are probably the Bose's forte but it's clear to see where the bulk of their money is invested. In Active Noise cancelling and comfort.
      Build quality is decent and the carry case it solid (one of the best I've had).

      My past Noise cancelling headphones have ranged from TDK NC 150's, Philips SHN9500's, Sony NC60's and now the Bose QC15's. The Bose are definitely the pick. They're actually the only set of Noise Cancelling headphones you'll ever need to buy. It would be nice if they were rechargeable but that's not a big deal. one four pack of triple A batteries will give you 150 hours of listening...or just by a small battery charger.

      These headphones produce good sound and have an excellent noise cancelling effect. I do not fly anymore without noise cancelling headphones. The first pair I bought where the first made by Bose, I loved them but after some time the black fabric covering that goes around the ear started flaking off into tiny bits. These bits got on everything and in my ears. I had to stop using them. Bose made some updates to the headphones and I decided to give them another try, I got another pair. The same thing happened. It takes about two years for the flaking to start, I will not give Bose a third chance.

            I have used previous versions of these headphones as well as the current model. They are solidly built and have quite good over all sound quality. The noise canceling technology works great for long trips on a plane. They are comfortable for extended periods of time. An included carry case is a benefit.

            Bose QuietComfort 15 Headphones

            By Jim

            from Cincinnati

            Comments about QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (Silver):

            These headphones are the best for long distance air travel. They are lightwieght and come supplied with a adapter plug for aircraft audio output. The newest ones also ship with an inline control for Apple iPhone, iPod, and iPad. The headphpnes are full-range frequency and are not bass-weighted sp they do not cause wearer fatigue after several hours of use. Of course, the best feature for airliner use is that they are noise-cancelling. This effect is not perfect, but does reduce jet engine noise considerably. When employed with the aircraft audio or an iPad or iPod, engine noise is nearly neglible. One word about battery life: buy replacements! The AAA cell is said to have about 35 hours of life. This is somewhat exagerated. As AAAs can be hard to find outside the US, be sure to take four or five along with these excellent headphones,

              Seriously - Excellent pair of headphones. Music is fine and yes there's enough Bass for the over 40 crowd... Oh, and the noise cancelling is amazing - perhaps adds to the excellent sound/music - no extraneous sound waves diluting the music. Worth the price. Very happy with purchase.

              Headphones are amazing for long flights, road trips and home use. Noise cancelling ability is fantastic, bass isn't too heavy, which I like, but others might not. Only gripe I have about it is if you wear glasses, it may create a small airhole around that area and some noise does get in. However, not so much so that it isn't still great. Additionally that can get a little bit uncomfortable. However, without glasses on they are amazingly comfortable.

                Comments about QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (Silver):

                I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids; previously I had Sennheiser over-ear noise-cancelling headphones which were compatible with hearing aids, but they were not too satisfactory, in part because especially because the noise cancellation was only partially successful, and in part because the wiring was built in, broke at the jack after a year, and was not replaceable. The Bose headphones surround the ear, and to use them I have to remove my hearing aids. However, because the noise cancellation is so good and the sound quality so good, my experience with them is far superior to the over-ear headphones. They are very comfortable, the cord jacks into the earphones in a very clever way, and there is a tiny control on the wire that allows one to easily adjust the volume with no effort. I fly a lot for work, and use these on the airplane; while wearing these headphones the trip is very quiet and I am able to listen to movies and music without trouble. They are a bit pricey, and I have not had them long enough to attest to their durability, but they look like they are well built and will last a long time if cared for well.

                    These are exceptional headphones. I was very skeptical of them for quite a while as I have experience in the audio production industry, but within no time I realised I had made the right choice in purchasing them. The sound quality is fantastic & the noise cancelling technology is the best I've encountered.

                      the brand speaks for itself
                      the best ever of all the headset I have used so far

                      BHP had it free expedited shipping so could not ask for more

                          Like most, I began using these on long flights-but now I use them at my computer, too. I have tried other brands of Noise Canceling headphones but none compare to these. It would be nice if they had volume control right on the headset.

                          These are great! My husband and I both work from home. We each have a bedroom as an office located just across from each other. While I work in image retouching, he is a tech phone support. I was going nuts one day hearing the same problem resolution he had to discuss over AND OVER! (I could NOT do his job!) I wasn't just looking for great sound from headphones, since everyone would expect that with any high quality set. I wanted noise canceling headphones! Since he sometimes gets louder as he is speaking, these may have very well saved my marriage of nearly 30 years! ; )
                          I can strongly recommend these as GREAT!

                            Being on an airplane for a 15 Hr. flight is solved with these headphones. The Boeing 777 was like being in a quiet glider with the Bose. The BEST!

                            Exceptional headphones - very quiet. Used for air travel and all around the home. Very well designed - light, comfortable. Perhaps if they made it a bit smaller, it would look less obvious.

                              Used on domestic and international flights. Works very well. Quality of music is exceptional. And the quiet function is superb. I would only like to see them a bit less large and more subtle in their appearance.

                                I use these for travel. They block out noise and allow me to really enjoy my music or movies and let me focus on either relaxing or work. I wouldn't think of traveling without these! While Bose offers the "in-ear" kind, I find for wearing these as often as I do, giving my ears a chance to breathe is helpful. They are pricey, but I know they'll last for a very long time and I'll get more pleasure out of them than their pricetag.
