Money well spent!
The QuietComfort 20's are the best noise canceling earbuds I've ever owned. I used them heavily during periods of frequent international travel, and they make plane rides significantly more pleasurable. The battery lasts a very long time, the noise cancelling is good, the ear inserts are the most comfortable I've ever used, and it all comes with a soft case. I only have two minor complaints. First, the toggle button on the controller broke for me, so I could not switch between noise canceling and non noise canceling without reaching into my pocket to flip the switch. Secondly, it was always tricky to get the battery and headphone jack to sit nicely with my phone in my pocket. The best way was with the jack pointing straight down, forcing it to absorb pressure from the phone in many cases. Otherwise, I'd recommend this product to everyone.

Excellent Headphones
I have the Android version of the QC20 and love them! The sound quality is spectacular and a treat to my audiophile hearing. I enjoy listening to my legacy recording and hearing sounds and instruments that I wasn't aware was there all these years. The earbuds are super comfortable and stay in place during my run or bike ride. I also use the QC20 as sound reduction when I mow the lawn. I can barely hear the lawnmower when I have music on. Buy these and you won't be disappointed.

Love these but durability a bit disappointing.
I've had my QC 20 headphones for about 2.5 years and I love the sound and noise cancelling aspect, unfortunately the aux cable has ripped at the 90 degree bend, even though I've been careful with them, definitely a weak point and disappointing, for the price I'd expect them to be more durable. The cover is also peeling off the battery but not overly worried about that.

Horrible Customer Service
I thought Bose was supposed to be a great company that backed up that backed up their product. I bought these headphones for the 3 or 4 times per year that I travel.They are older, but used seldom due to what they were purchased for. The male adapter bent and now the headphones can no longer be used. I called for repair because they are expensive and in fine working order otherwise. They are out of warranty and they DO NOT repair, but oh of course you can replace them with another pair...Ugh! Never again Bose!

Highly recommended to block out snoring
I bought these back in December after Bose recalled their sleepbuds. After testing over $1000 on various anti snoring solutions, these turned out to be the best. I plug them into an old phone (airplane mode) running a white noise app and put them both in a fabric workout belt so they stay with me if I turn over. Between the ANC and low-volume white noise, I can't hear any snoring. The only environmental sounds that get through are one-off high-frequency sounds which ANC can't do much about. With 16 hours of battery life, they cover me for two nights.

I have two bits of constructive feedback.
1) The mic picks up outside wind very easily on phone calls
2) I have read reviews about the aux cable ripping at the 90 degree bend. As such, I never let the ANC box free hang, which can make it awkward to use since I feel I must hold it at all times. Perhaps I'm being paranoid though.

Great build quality
I've had a pair of these for three years - with heavy use. I saw a review criticizing the build and wanted to say 1) mine have handled a lot of use and abuse, 2) the battery life is still good, and 3) I recently, accidentally, put these through a full washing machine cycle (over an hour! - fully immersed, spin etc). Figured it was a write-off but put it in a bad of rice for two days (to dry it out) - and to my amazement it works just as well as before! Not that I recommend this practice - but that's a quality product!

Let me just point this out. They market a product at Android/Samsung but include a 3.5mm jack and a 'micro' USB Cable. That's very poor for a product of this value, it should have USB-C connectivity or market it correctly.

Battery Not replaceable
Worked well for 3-4 Years but when battery dies, there is no way as per Bose service center that it can be replaced. Feeling cheated. A device with battery without battery replacement is of no use. So life of this ear phone is equal to life of bettery.
