The worst part about airplane travel is, well, the plane. Besides beingcramped, crowded, and short on any decent snack foods, they're alsonoisy. So noisy that it's difficult to make the hours zip by morequickly by revisiting your favorite albums on an...

Blocks out ambient noise. Comfortable over-the-ear design. comes with carrying case and airline adapter. Hi/Lo switch lowers the volume of overly loud sources

No option to bypass noise-cancellation. Can make some users queasy. Sound can be too bright

Bose's Quiet Comfort 15's are a great pair of 'phones if you can stomach the noise-cancelling sound waves--and the steep price.

Bose QuietComfort 15 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review - Intro

 

The QuietComfort 15s are the latest headphones in Bose's line-up of active cancelling headphones. It's quite an improvement over the QuietComfort 3s. They might be a bit expensive, and they might not have the best audio quality, but they have some of...

The Bose QuietComfort 15s have a lot of improvements over the QC3s. They don't have the greatest sound quality, but their active cancellation feature is absolutely incredible. Unfortunately, even this strength has a weakness: you can't use the QC15s...

Here's today's quiz—guess how many headphones will be bought in the U.S. this year? If you said 68 million, you'd win the prize. The vast majority are earbuds for music players with a chunk (12 million) the classic wired-headband, DJ-wannabe style...

Superior noise-canceling system; very comfortable; good frequency response

High price may trouble some; not the ultimate solution for audiophiles

You'll be more than happy with the QC15's performance should you choose to shell out for it.

Bose Quiet Comfort 15 (Silver)

 

In designing its fourth-generation consumer noise-canceling headphones, the QuietComfort 15s, Bose has done something interesting. Instead of coming up with a whole new look for its headphones as it did with the QuietComfort 3s , Bose has left the...

Extracomfortable design; improved sound; highly effective noise-canceling circuitry; device folds for compact storage in included carrying case; 30-day home trial.

Expensive; when the battery dies, so does the music.

While they're no bargain, the Bose QuietComfort 15s currently offer the best sound and silencing capabilities in a pair of noise-canceling headphones.

Bose QuietComfort 15

 

Bose invented the noise-canceling headphone, so the company must not have liked seeing companies like Creative and Sennheiser waltz right in and beat them at their own game. With the QuietComfort 15, however, Bose takes back the category it created. At...

The best noise cancellation you can get in a pair of headphones. Extremely comfortable. Sturdy carrying case, battery, and airplane adapter are included

Audio can be overly bright, and distorts at high volumes. Must be powered on to deliver audio

Bose takes noise cancellation to the next level with the QuietComfort 15 headphones, and while the audio performance isn't perfect, it's an improvement over previous iterations.
