Product Details

Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones, Model QC20I

The Bose QuietComfort 201 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones combine many of the most advanced Bose technologies to create what might be the best earbuds you'll ever wear. With a secure fit, integrated iPhone/iPod remote, active noise cancellation and the renowned Bose sound quality, the QuietComfort headphones provide listening pleasure at home, on the road and everywhere in between.

The Pinnacle of Portable Sound

As with all Bose headphones, the magic is in the sound. Though small, the Bose QuietComfort don't sacrifice audio quality because of their compact size. Utilizing the proprietary Bose TriPort design and active equalization, these Bose headphones produce a natural, wide range of frequencies. Music and phonecalls will have a stunning, lifelike quality that will rival full-sized headphones.

Block Out the World Around You

Further improving your listening experience is the Bose noise cancellation design. Combining snug StayHear+ ear tips—which passively block ambient noises—with Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology—which electronically cancels the remaining noise—you're left listening only to the crystal-clear sounds of your own music. For the times you do need to hear some of what's going on around you, the press of a single button activates Aware Mode, and your Bose headphones will let back in the sounds of the world around you.

Comfort and Convenience

In addition to providing some noise suppression, the StayHear+ tips are also designed for maximum comfort. The soft silicone will provide hours of comfortable listening, and their innovative design hugs the ridge of your ear to keep them snug when you're active. Partway down the headphone wires of the Bose QuietComfort, you'll find the combo in-line microphone and remote, offering full functionality with your iPod or iPhone. Located near the headphone jack is the control module, which lets you adjust the noise cancellation and also houses the rechargeable battery, which provides up to 16 hours of active noise cancellation. Even when the battery dies, your QuietComfort headphones will still function passively, with the audio quality you'd expect from a pair of Bose headphones.

        They work great with most genres of music, I have had them for about a month and I usually use them to listen to music on my iPhone. They are comfortable even when working out. The reduction of ambient noise is great; I noticed a significant reduction even when music is not playing.

              I got these to replace my Bose over-the-ear QC (15?) headphones since they are bulky to travel with.These new QC20i are amazing! Very easy to carry around, and they sound great too. You need to keep them charged, but thats not hard to do. They even allow passive mode if you run out of battery. Best I've used. Pretty comfortable for in-ear phones too.

                  I have only tried them a few times so far, but they are amazing. I replaced my current set of full size QC 2 headphones with these and I think the sound is just as good if not better at a mere fraction of the size.

                    I wouldn't travel without it. With today's cramped air travel, being able to shut out the ambient noise and listen to music or a movie is wonderful.

                      Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones:

                      These are good hybrid-type headphones. They do not cancel noise as well as the big over-ear headphones, but they are a lot better than the non-noise canceling version of these headphones. If you don't want the bulk of the big ones and don't need to completely block the outside noises, these will do just fine. They are a bit bulkier than the non-noise canceling headphones because of the battery pack; but it is small and light so it is generally not too obtrusive.

                      Took me exactly 1 hour to break these. Totally my fault because I snaggged the wire on a cabinet handle. Still works and got things worked out with purchase protection. Still seemed to methat it took very little to break these.

                      Sound is great and noise cancelling really works well.
