Bose QuietComfort 20 overview

  • 1Description

The black QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones from Bose feature their active noise-cancelling technology with an in-ear headphone design. The headphones are powered by Bose's TriPort Acoustic drivers to produce a balanced frequency response. They are powered by the built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 16 hours of noise cancellation per charge. The in-line microphone with remote allows you to take calls and control your iPhone, iPad, or iPod device.

Aware Mode
There are moments when you may not want to be so cut off from your surroundings; crossing a city street, waiting for airline gate announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you're back in touch with the sounds around you—while your music keeps playing, and you still experience some noise cancellation.
Rechargeable Battery
The environmentally friendly built-in lithium-ion battery (located inside the module) charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies, your music still plays with performance equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones.

    Bose QuietComfort 20 reviews

    QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 446.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Though these are very expensive, but I doubt you can't find a comparable pair of earphones anywhere else. To be honest, the sound quality is not phenomenal if compare to other products of similar prices. However, sometimes it's more important to hear the music clearly instead of blindly pursuing quality of sound. Because of the combination of QC20's fantastic noise cancelling quality and a decent sound quality, I can't live without these. In addition, because my ears are a little bit weird and cannot hold any kind of in-ear headphones other than sport ones and these, I'm so happy that I can finally listen to music while working out. Can't be more satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought this day would never come! I bought the original pair when they were released roughly 2 yrs ago and enjoyed everything but the volume controls (never owned an iPhone). Recently picked these up and gave the other pair to my gf (has an iPhone). My gf actually thought I bought her a new pair due to the superb quality, lack of bumps from cable-tangling, and wear. Did not. lol I've had every phone in the Galaxy line-up and finally settled on the Note 4 for travel. Movies, reading, notetaking and music are really enjoyable now with quick volume controls! I'm enjoying my favorite activities like I first did when I was introduced to these earphones but now with more control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability Beyond Beleif I have owned my pair of Q 20's for just over a year. They perform exceptionally well for my rail commute and flights for business. This past weekend, much to my horror, I found that I had not removed them from my pants pocket and they went through a cycle in my washer an dryer! When I removed the clothing from the dryer and saw what I had done, I was already contemplating getting another pair. But, just for giggles, I decided to try them out. I plugged them into my iPhone and, remarkably, they worked as well as ever. Who would have thought. Maybe you could start promoting them as Washer/Dryer safe! Anyway, thanks BOSE for producing such a rugged, top-performing product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from QC20i is a sanity saver This was my first noise canceling device. The demo at the Bose store was excellent and I bought the QC20i. The true test of these earphones, however, was on a 6-hour flight with a stranger's "boisterous" 2-year old kid sitting behind me who was active the whole time. Turning on the noise canceling without inserting the plug into my iPhone, the jet engine drone and the kid's too loud voice were reduced to nearly a whisper. Connected to my iPhone with music turned on to low volume effectively masked the the engine and kid, and I could relax and go to sleep. Bliss! Totally worth the price for the sake of my sanity when traveling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ambient Sound Reduction I bought the new Bose QuietComfort 20 for Apple Products earphones for noise cancelling during long international flights. I researched the market for lots of products and read many reviews from differing sources about the BOSE earphones. Without a doubt these earphones have an amazing ability to reduce outside sounds. I turned them on for the first time and it went quiet - even with TV sound and conversation going on around me. These are the earphones for anyone interested in reducing surrounding sounds while still listening to music or watch a video. They sit comfortably in the ear and are not intrusive as many earphones and ear plugs can be. BOSE quality and sound are all there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST noise cancelling headphones on the market I’ve owned several Bose products as well as some from other manufacturers — Bose QC15, QC20i, QC30, and QC35s. The QC20s are, hands down, the undisputed champions in noise cancellation! The in-ear tips block out much of the background noise that is still present with the over-ear headphones (QC15, QC35). The ANC takes care of the rest. I don’t know why, but the ANC is even better than the newer QC30s. They are amazing! If you don’t require bluetooth and you want/need the absolute best in noise cancellation, you should choose these over any other headphones — Bose or otherwise!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sounding headphones, but awful durability These headphones sound great and cancel noise well, but they are awful from a durability standpoint. I've gone through 3, soon to be 4 pairs, in the last 4 years. The connections areas of the wires to the battery pack area damage easily from being put in your pockets. These are my daily headphones in NYC. I wear them while I commute, as well as while I work and listen to music. Needless to say, they get a lot of use. However, I always buy the SquareTrade protection plan because of how bad the durability is. For the price and how Bose markets these as your daily grind/commuter headphone, these should hold up for more than a year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High performance, noise-canceling, in-ear phones I bought two pair for my wife and I. She needs the small ear tips and I need the large ear tips. These in-ear phones work great and significantly reduce outside noise interference. I've used the over-ear and on-ear phones during international flights and they work great, but eventually irritate the ears. The in-ear phones fit snuggly and can remain in the ear for hours on end with no irritation. Make sure you use the properly sized ear tips or you will experience outside noise infiltrating the ear drum by bypassing the ear tip. We highly recommend these in-ear phones and are considering purchasing pairs for our daughters and their husbands.
