I have an older pair of Bose noise-canceling headphones that I use at work, but they're kind of big and bulky, and I wanted something more compact for international travel. The technology in these earbuds is phenomenal! The older headphones are fine, but they really do best with blocking out "constant" noise (airplane, jackhammer, etc.) These earbuds really block out almost everything, even if it's not a constant sound. They worked amazingly for a 43-hour travel window to Africa, kept a charge and everything (I didn't have them on noise cancelation the full 43 hours, but didn't have to recharge 'til we got there). Then they worked amazingly while out on safari for nearly 2 weeks, where we were camping with lots of wild animal sounds that might have kept me awake. Instead, I slept like a baby. They are comfy, good sound quality (even with the noise cancelation turned on) and have continued to be a great investment now that I'm back at work and needing to more effectively block out boisterous co-workers. :) I guess they're not "cheap" but for me they are 100% worth the cost.

Simply brilliant
I've had a pair of these for a few years now and I never fail to be impressed with them. I listen to music and use them for telephone calls or conference calls. The sound quality is very 'Bose' which I like. In fact they are so good that when there was an Amazon offer on I bought another pair in case the others ever fail!

Work well but they are uncomfortable on long use
We bought these QC20 headphones to replace our over the ear Bose noise canceling headphones. We did this as we have gone to traveling to Europe using carry-on luggage only and these fit the bill for reducing the size and weight of our luggage items. They work well at the noise canceling when you get the ear piece in correctly. The main problem I have with them is the sizing of the ear pieces. The small does not seal, the medium ear piece seals okay but after a couple of hours they are very uncomfortable. We will continue to use these but would like to come up with a better in-ear piece, something like the Shure ear buds use which is a compressible then expandable ear insert. Bose rep, can you help?

One of my best purchases
These headphones seemed too expensive when I first bought them. I was really questioning spending that much money on headphones that could break and make me regret the decision. But, it's been four years since I bought them and by simply caring for them as any person would and not doing anything stupid with them, they've exceeded my expectations. Truthfully, if you are anywhere where you just want to be in your own space, turn them on and play your music or podcast or audiobook and you're in your own world.

My only semi complaint is the noise cancelling battery itself. Don't get me wrong, it's totally worth it but at times it can be annoying.

Great sound but really bad workmanship
I have two pairs of these purchased in three years. The first pair fell apart. First to go was the clip then the volume contril buttons fell off. Too bad, these have great bose sound and are the most coomfortable ear phones Ive ever had, (Ive tried iphone, samsung, Phillips, etc..) no exception but lousy construction. Too fragile for everday use.

Great Product
I have had these for several years. They are fantastic and stay in my ear. I run with them daily and I never have to touch/adjust them. While running, I often make a call and have no complaints about the sound quality. I commute with them and the noise cancelling is great. I purchased these over the QC 15/25/35 series because they are compact and I can run with them.

The best but still 4 stars
These are the best headphones out there, but still not perfect. The sound quality 5 star, the fit is 5 star, the battery lasts well long enough, the portability and durability is 5 star. The only real complaint is that they get tangled often making it difficult start using. I can’t wait til this becomes Bluetooth enabled.
