Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones - QC20

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.

Key Features:

  • 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. StayHear+ eartips stay comfortably secure for hours
  • 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. QC20/20i headphones come with an inline control module and inline microphone/remote Control module houses electronics and noise-cancelling on/off switch
  • 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 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones:

    I purchsed these because I wanted noise cancelling headphones that didn't take up so much space when travelling. I was also tired of wearing the big earmuff styles.

    I wanted these to work with my android phone as well as my Apple devices. The salesperson said they heard it works this way but try it and if not, return them.

    I am pleased to report that the headphones work beautifully with my android phone as well as with my iPad, iPods.

    I also like having both noise isolating and cancelling features as I commute in a busy city and like to hear sounds around me but I also like to cut out out all outside sounds when sitting on a plane for hours at a time.

    These headphones are not the least expensive option and are expensive. I had to think hard about whether they were worth the price and for me, they are.

    Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones:

    Great product that reduces noise significantly across the whole frequency band (including voice). Only con is that the electronics package doesn't come with any sort of clip to attach it to anything (e.g., belt).
