Bose® QuietComfort® 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headphones, Model QC20i

Experience the exceptional all new Bose® QuietComfort® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headphones QC20i. The Bose® QuietComfort® are the first in-ear headphones to offer you effective noise cancellation technology. Soft silicone wraps the StayHear+ tips keeping them securely in your ears, while providing ultimate comfort. The Bose® in-ear headphones come with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery providing you with a full 16 hours of use. The QC20i's Aware mode lets you turn off the noise cancelling features allowing the sounds around you to be heard. With an inline microphone and remote the Bose® QuietComfort® allows you to control your iPhone, iPod, or iPad easily. The Bose® QuietComfort® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headphones QC20i will rival any existing noise cancelling headphones available.

Features:

  • In-ear. Noise cancelling. Better sound.
    Consider them your go-to headphones, wherever you go. The first in-ear noise cancelling headphones from Bose give you more control over how you listen than ever before, in all kinds of environments. Block the outside world with full-on noise reduction. Or, choose Aware mode and let some of it in—all while keeping your headphones on and your music alive with lifelike Bose® sound. Wherever your day takes you, QC®20 headphones keep you connected. To the beat of your music, and the pulse of what's around you.
    • Impressive audio performance from exclusive Bose technologies
    • Advanced noise reduction rivaling any full-sized headphone
    • Aware mode for hearing what's around you while enjoying your music
    • Long-lasting comfort plus stability from proprietary StayHear®+ ear tips
  • Lose yourself in your music
    QC20 headphones let you experience music on the go as never before. You'll enjoy lifelike, digital sound quality that stands out from the noise around you—plus the freedom of an in-ear headphone. StayHear+ tips physically block some noise while our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology electronically reduces most of what's left. It's just you and your music, even in noisy environments.
  • Tune in to your environment
    But there are moments when you may not want to be so cut off from your surroundings. Crossing a city street. Waiting for airline gate announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you're back in touch with the sounds around you—while your music keeps playing, and you still experience some noise cancellation.
  • Engaging sound
    All this, plus Bose lifelike sound. Sound you wouldn't expect from in-ear headphones. Our TriPort® technology and Active EQ combine to give your music a depth and balance that keep your daily soundtrack fresh and alive. The subtle details shine through, too. So wherever you are, your music's front and center.
  • Advanced ear tip technology
    And your music's even easier to enjoy when you're not fussing with your headphones. Proprietary StayHear+ tips create a soft, secure fit with no need to force them into your ears. The cone shape spreads contact evenly across the ear for maximum comfort, and forms a gentle seal that contributes to the headphones' full-spectrum noise reduction.
  • You're in control
    Controls are all at your fingertips. Use the slider switch on the control module to turn noise cancelling on and off. The inline remote/microphone houses Aware mode and call answer/end buttons. The 2-button remote (QC20 model) is designed for your Android, BlackBerry or Windows phone. The 4-button remote (QC20i model), customized for use with your iPhone or iPod, adds volume, music control and voice commands.
  • Rechargeable battery
    The environmentally friendly built-in lithium-ion battery (located inside the module) charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies your music still plays with performance similar to that of our regular in-ear headphones.
    When not in use, simply store your headphones and cables in the included carrying case.

    Comments about Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones:

    I had the older Bose in ear headphones, non noise canceling. For my ears the Bose in ear headphones were the only ones that wouldn't fall out of my ear over time like others. So when I wanted a noise canceling version, the choice was simple. With my commute I was tired of hearing background noises. Note these headphones don't block out all conversations. These headphones are great at blocking engine noises or other noises that are at a constant tone. They will lower the level of people's conversations, but they don't fully block it out like the constant tones. All I have to say is one commute trip with these headphones and I was so glad that I got them! Even if you're not listening to music, and you just have the noise canceling feature on to block out background noises was amazing. There were even certain noises that I didn't even know that were normally present until I used these.

    The only knock with these headphones is the quality of the sound. If your an audiophile you will be disappointed with these. Don't get me wrong these are still good headphones and most people will be happy with the sound they produce. It's just something Bose can improve upon for their next iteration of these. For a noise canceling headphone that is easy to carry with you and is an in ear bud, you can't go wrong with these.

        The noise cancelling feature works exactly as my ancient first BOSE, but the beauty of this is how compact it is for when I travel. Unfortunately, because of the noise cancelling panel I found it difficult to use while working out. I still love it!

        Comments about Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones:

        I bought this product primarily for airplane travel using an iPhone, MacBook Pro and portable Sony DVD player. I will continue to use my other Bose pods without the noise cancelling feature when out and about with my iPhone and need to hear what's around me. If you are not going to be traveling much, the more expensive noise cancelling model is too expensive and you should stick with the non-noise cancelling model for value.

            I also own the Bose QC15 noise canceling headphones. These are much more portable and work as well as the bulkier headphones. Their major utility is noise cancellation when traveling. For folks buying noise cancellation headphones for the first time, it is important to know that these do not cut out all ambient sounds, but they significantly cut down plane engine noise.
