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.

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

              I originally bought the Bose QuietComfort 15 Noise Canceling Headphones to come with me on a 2 month camping trip. I knew that traveling with strangers over 6k miles, plus all the sounds in nature, would make tuning-out a necessity. I was right. They buffered the sounds of rain & wind and the pitter patter of critters—which would've effected my sleep—but most importantly, they reduced the volume of the other travelers talking. These headphones were the smartest "waste of space" in my backpack. Since then, they have become invaluable when I travel by air or train. I had NO IDEA how loud the white noise of a plane was until I flew with my Bose. I also appreciate that it's not total silence, but dampens sounds enough that, while I don't feel deaf, I'm blissfully ignorant to a lot of distraction. I'm grateful that B&H has this model available, because when I lost my first pair (don't ask!) I didn't want to risk the quality I came to love with the new design. Always a possibility.

                I use my headphones at work to block out distractions, which include; phone calls, people talking, and noises form the kitchen. The noise cancellation on the Bose are fantastic, it doesn't remove outside sound completely, but makes it so that it isn't a distraction. When music is playing, you hear nothing but what you're listening to. I'm not an audio geek, but the sound quality seems perfect to me. The earphones are comfortable and the head brace is comfortable as well. The detectable auto jack cord is a huuuuge plus, if the cable frays or breaks, it's easy and less expensive to replace. The battery life is said to be 35 hours, but I've already been using them for 5 hours a day for 2 weeks now and have had no need to replace them yet.

                  My office at work has paper thin walls, and when there are meetings or phone conferences in neighboring offices it was impossible to work until I started to use these headphones. They really work. I can hear my phone ring but not much else, so I have to make sure people know to knock loudly on my door. I was concerned that it would be uncomfortable for my ears, but there's no sense of a ringing or buzzing with the noise cancellation, just peace and quiet. They are also comfortable to wear for long hours. The one thing I sometimes forget is to turn them off when I take them off, so I need to keep replacement batteries on hand in case I leave them on and burn out the batteries.

                      I was skeptical while making the investment into this headphone, but I must admit it paid off.They feel nice and comfortable around the ear, fits perfectly. Good for long usages.The sound is nice, little high on the bass, but that is something I prefer. The best feature would be the noise cancellation, it works like a gem.In summary, it is a worthy investment.Also, had a great experience while picking up my order at the store - amazing service. Loved the experience.

                        If you are an ant-social work-a-holic who prefers to zone out at every moment's convenience then this is for you. It's ability to drown out that crying baby behind you and the screams of panicking civilians as they flee terror while you continue to stroll slowly as Mothra continues to wreak havoc on your metropolitan are uncanny. Unlike a lot of cheaper versions, my ears also never get that horrible soreness from being encapsulated for 10 hours at a time. Down side though is I'm pretty sure it's helping me further lose touch with reality and is probably not the best for my hearing.

                          No doubt these are excellent headphones...

                          I'm on my third pair. Someone else mentioned the flaking issues that eventually happens, which is true. With my first two pairs, I had flaking with both the ear cups and the head pad. Also, the ear cups do eventually begin to unravel. Keep in mind, I used mine almost daily...

                          As far as the flaking on head pad goes, an important note to those who shave their heads. If you don't do it daily, that sandpaper surface on your noggin is going to flake the cushion fairly quickly. Gotta' keep a smooth surface up there...

                          So why the 5 stars? Like I said, excellent product! I think they save on your hearing. When you don't have outside noise to compete with, you can keep your levels moderate and still enjoy your tunes. We all know what it's like competing with gym noise or coffee grinders...

                          As far as the other issues? The ear cups and other parts can be replaced if needed, and Bose stands behind their product. In fact, they even offer a full replacement program. Pretty hard to beat that!...

                              I've owned the older version for 8 years and YES it's lasted me that long till I started to notice the leather on the ear cushions and headband started to flake off. I bought replacement ear cushions which were nice, but the leather part of the headband still needed replacing. I got tired of dealing with flaky black stuff on my head, so I decided to buy a new pair... and boy are these much better! I will definitely be purchasing another pair once these start to deteriorate.

                                I was looking for a pair of headphones for when I fly, the noise cancelling on this model is perfect. It really does an amazing job at noise cancelling, this is great as it means I don't have to have the volume turned all the way up to get some sleep on the plane or when I am wanting to watch a movie.

                                It comes with a spare headphone to headphone jack cable which I thought was really nice. The case is perfect for storage.

                                I checked out the sound on various models and don't think any of the other in that range comes close, unless you are wanting to spend double the price I think these are the choice.

                                  I have a lot of trouble with being distracted or overwhelmed by background noise, and was searching for headphones to help. I tried several brands and styles, including in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear, active and passive noise cancellation. These are simply the best.With the noise cancellation on but without music, background noise like the rumble of the subway is simply gone. Playing music (at half the volume I used to use with other headphones!), even conversation right next to me is masked.Comfort-wise, I can and often do wear these for hours. The cord can be separated from the headphones (it's a jack/plug) for when I want quiet but not music, so I don't have to have the cord dangling.Two co-workers and one friend have already bought these based on my experience. I strongly suggest you give them a try.
