Simply Phenomenal
These headphones are incredible. I can't believe how good the noise canceling is in these little things. I actually find myself using these more often than the QC25s simply because it's much easier to sleep with these on while on a plane, and because they're so much more portable. I highly recommend these headphones!

I bought these headphones about 6 months ago and love them. Everyone that tries them out can't believe how well the noise cancellation works. I want the white pair next. I highly recommend these head phones. Oh btw, when I am on the plane I could be right next to the engine and not hear it.

Great sound but fragile
The sound quality is excellent and the noise cancelling is good - although it's not in the same league as my Bose QC15 (around-ear units.) The design has a large control / battery / electronics box which is always near the user's phone. It's a bit weird although I can't think of a better way to achieve the functionality. I can live with this. Battery life is reasonable and charging is acceptably quick from any USB socket.

On the other hand, these earphones are not robust. My first set's switch stopped operating after 8 months. It was replaced under warranty. The second set's cable failed - it's a good thing I bought an extended warranty because I'd be more than a little cheesed off right now.

My final gripe is that the cable is about 8" too short for me to carry my phone in my pocket. Seriously - this is nickel-and-dime stuff. Bose should include - or at least offer - an extension lead as included in the SoundSport headphones.

Even though the sound quality is among the best I've heard, I honestly can't say I think these earphones are good value for money. I'm having serious reservations about spending my refund on a third set.

These earphones are a life-saver. they are ideal for planes, trains, and offices/libraries that are noisier than they should be. Also great for jogging or biking with their 'traffic noise on'.... My dog chewed mine up, and i was able to get a new pair for a discounted price!

An amazing product BUT!!
The headphones are superb in terms of noise canceling noise and sound depth, the amount of bass it provide is unbelievable. My only issue with it is when I use it in transportation and the windows are opened and also when closing the bus's door, i get a feeling that my ears are going to explode because of the pressure. So i have to deactivate the cancelation till I insure that the environment is securely locked. Other than this issue I definitly recommend them.

Great headphone
The sound quality is mind blowing. Before purchasing this headphone I have considered shure but this one is much better then that. Only one problem in this headphone is it's a bit heavy then other headphone. But all together, this is a best piece of headphone that anyone can get. I know it is expensive but it's durable and the price is worth it.

Great noise cancelling headphone
Before having this I used QC25 which is also great. But QC20 provides even better noise cancelling and convenience for carrying around. Further the internal battery is great feature as I kind of get tired of replacing battery around. Like other Bose products, the design is made for real comfort indeed. Regarding the sound, impeccable. After changing earphone quite frequently, I think this is the one that I would definite stop at and keep using because it never get me tired or bordered. Perfect if I have to choose a word to conclude.

Best ever
These are simply incredible, the noise cancellation is fantastic. Once I was walking past two trains and I couldn't hear a thing with the noise cancellation. However I have an iPhone 7 and it's clunky to carry around with the headphone jack adapter.

Perfect for Travel
I am a frequent flyer. I put these to the test of 170,000 miles last year and they passed on every one. 1) Great to keep your hands free while you're walking through the airport. You can handle phone calls and listen to music without needed to pull your phone out of your pocket. Side note, you also don't look as crazy talking into them as you do with a bluetooth headset. 2) Excellent noise cancelling. Once you're on the plane, it mutes the sound of unwanted noise from the engine hum or loud passengers (I'm talking about wailing kids mostly, parents I feel your pain). Keep in mind if you're listening on your phone or personal device you won't hear a thing the Pilot or flight attendants say to you. 3) Perfect for sleeping. Since they're so small and ridiculously comfortable, you can sleep with them in your ears and forget they're there. I have the Bose QC 15s and my biggest complaint was not being able to sleep with them. As soon as I turned my head or rolled over, the headphones would come off and the change in audio levels would wake me up. With the QC20s their small nature works so well when you're on the move, or trying to get some shut eye on a flight. Having said all that, I've been pleasantly surprised over the past year with my QC 20s. I use them almost exclusively every day, and have to say they have completely replaced my QC 15s.

All around great purchase
I bought these to negate the frequent chatter in the office; I was impressed with how well these work. Sometimes I don't even play music, I just use the noise cancelling option, it's like I'm in another world, I can focus so well now. The way I see it, it's an ROI.
