About

Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Headphones

When we're mobile we don't have the luxury of using our home theaters for sound to blow us away.  Generally I've never been a fan of Bose because (in my opinion) the sound quality is rarely justified by the price.  However, I have heard these headphones and I would call them an exception.  I borrowed them working out in the gym a few times and have concluded.  I need a pair myself. 


Heres the manufacturers description:

Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headphones

Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones

Full Spectrum Noise Reduction

They're the best Bose headphones, period. QuietComfort 15 headphones feature exclusive Bose advancements in noise reduction technology. You hear less noise and more of your music and movies-with quality sound and a long-lasting comfortable fit. You won't find this combination of benefits in any other headphone.
 
 
 
 
Bose technology at work
advanced noise reduction
Engine roar fades to a whisper
Within every pair of QC®15 headphones, advanced electronics use microphones inside and outside each earcup to sense the sounds around you-and reduce the noise. Proprietary ear cushion technology blocks some of the noise before it even reaches your ears. Together, these Bose innovations add up to a more enjoyable listening experience.
Relax with music - or without it
QC15 headphones also feature proprietary signal processing and TriPort® acoustic headphone structure for more lifelike sound-including deep low notes-from small, lightweight earcups. And when you'd rather relax without music, switch on QC headphones to simply reduce the noise around you, wherever you are.
Take calls. Take control
QC15 headphones come with a cable customized for select Apple® products. A three-button remote and microphone let you take calls on your iPhone and control music functions on other Apple devices. You can also purchase a mobile kit that lets your QC headphones work with other cell phones, too.
 
Welcome to a better-sounding world

Switch between calls and music with a press of a button
When you fly with QC15 headphones, engine roar fades to a whisper. When you listen at home or at work, fewer distractions get in the way of your music. And when you want to stay connected, calls are just a button-press away. QC15 headphones continue to give you more of what you want to hear, and less of what you don't.
QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones Highlights
  • Significant noise reduction across a wider range of frequencies. Proprietary Bose innovations use microphones both inside and outside each earcup to sense and reduce the sounds around you.
  • TriPort acoustic headphone structure, another Bose exclusive, features tiny vents in the earcups to enable a tonally-balanced audio performance-including reproduction of deep, low notes-from relatively small and lightweight headphones.
  • Active equalization electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.
  • Interchangeable audio cables, one for general use, and one just for select Apple products, offer greater convenience than permanently connected Y-cables.

    The inline remote puts control right at your fingertips

  • Slim carrying case helps protect headphones and accessories during travel.

These Noise Canceling headphones these are the best headphones I've heard.  Additionally, they are built solid and would likely last you forever.  As mentioned previously, the price of Bose products is usually a deturrant for what you get but in this case.  Long story short? This product is worth the "overprice-edness" (i know, i know....)
