Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones - QC3

Leave the noise behind, and get the most from your music. QuietComfort 3 headphones offer a proven combination of Bose® noise reduction and audio performance with a comfortable on-ear fit. These award-winning headphones deliver clear, lifelike sound, making listening a pleasure just about anywhere.

  • Proven performance
    QC3 headphones feature Bose® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® technology to electronically identify, then dramatically reduce, the noise around you. You're left with the music you love—or the simple serenity you desire. Proprietary signal processing and audio reproduction technology also provide lifelike performance across the full range of sound—including deep low tones—from small and lightweight headphones.

  • Create a comfortable escape
    Think of your noisy office, or the bustling activity in train stations and other public places. At the flip of a switch, that background noise is reduced to a whisper. That’s when the high quality sound these headphones provide becomes even more apparent. You’ll hear more of your music—without having to turn up your music. And the soft-cushioned, easy-on-the-ears fit lets you listen comfortably for hours.

  • Hear the difference for yourself
    Wear QC®3 headphones when you fly, and you'll notice a dramatic reduction in engine noise the moment you turn them on. And when it's time for some music, simply plug the cable into your portable player, tablet or the inflight entertainment system. The cable fits directly into most any portable device.

  • Take calls. Take control.
    QC3 headphones come with an additional cable customized for select Apple® products. A three-button remote and inline microphone let you take calls on your iPhone and manage music on other Apple devices. You can control volume, track selection and voice applications, plus easily switch between calls and music. You can also purchase a mobile kit that lets your QC headphones work with other cell phones, too.

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones:

Perfect for travel, especially now that the FAA allows devices to be in use from boarding through landing. Traveled just after purchasing and thought they were great to keep the noise on the plane out of my head. Sound quality is great and battery life is excellent.
