Bose QuietComfort 20 Black In-Ear Headphones For Apple Devices - 718839-0010

Experience better sounding music wherever you go with the Bose QuietComfort 20 Black In-Ear Headphones - 718839-0010. Bose engineered the first ever noise cancelling earbuds, to make these QuietComfort 20 headphones truly one of a kind. For a secure fit, StayHear®+ tips have been added. StayHear®+ tips are made of soft silicone that will let you forget you're even wearing headphones. In addition to that, these Bose noise cancelling earbuds deliver a crisp sound that has never before been available, thanks to their Active EQ and TriPort® technology. Still not convinced? Well, Aware mode has also been integrated into these headphones, which allows you to control the noise cancelling feature. This means that for times that you need to be more mindful of your surroundings, you will be able to simply switch on Aware mode to turn off the noise cancelling. Topping that off with an inline, 4-button remote, you have all of the tools to control your listening experience, make phone calls, and even access Siri or Google search. Take home the first ever noise cancelling earbuds by Bose from Abt today!

Key Features:

  • Bose® noise cancelling technology, shut out the world and focus on your music
  • Aware mode to hear what’s around you at the press of a button
  • Deep, clear sound from the Active EQ and TriPort® technology
  • Soft, and secure for hours of listening from proprietary StayHear®+ ear tips

Features:

  • 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 microphone/remote houses Aware mode and call answer/end buttons. The 4-button remote, provides volume and music control plus access to voice-recognition apps, like Siri or Google search.
  • Rechargeable battery
    The 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 equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones. When not in use, simply store your headphones and cables in the included carrying case.

I have had my QC20i earbuds since 2014 (or there about) - and I've loved them ever since. Their comfort is unmatched in any other earbud product I've tried, and there isn't another noise-cancelling earbud that even comes close. Remember - we're talking about earbuds, not over the ear headphones (which will always cancel more sound). I've worn mine nearly daily - when I sleep, when I need peace and quiet, in the chair at the dentists office (trust me, they're life savers there) - and obviously on planes. To be fair - I'm actually on my third pair of them - as I've had the first two have issues with one of the earbuds splitting about 1/2 way through the warranty period. But THAT'S what makes this such a worthwhile purchase: you see, I haven't had a single issue with product support. Bose stands behind their products in a way that I've almost never seen a company do. It's superior to even Apple Care - by miles. If you make no other high-end audio purchase - buying this (or any other Bose product) is definitely the way to go. I know that I'm not buying anything less.

On the average, it needs replacement every few months, I am on 4th replacement, and now the Aware Button just broke again, this time in the span of just about 2 months. Playing around with the cable position has shown that it's likely due to bad cable join within the battery/control compartment. Bose warranty is amazing, but the inconvenience of making a trip to have it replaced, and knowing that your 300USD only last as long as a year(Warranty coverage), it's rather an expensive investment for what it is. High-pitch sound likely due to sweat/moisture build up, once dried should be fine, which indicates that this headset is not build for high humidity area like tropical Asia(where I am at) or summer time. Having a good customer support and warranty replacement is amazing, but having the product replaced/exchange every few month only show poor quality build. This product has the best sound in its class, now that Bose released version 2 of this product, I am not sure will it improve(Aware Button) but I will only hope they replace my current faulty Aware Button(again and again) with version 2.

Great headphone

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

The sound quality is mind blowing. Before purchasing this headphone I have considered shure but this one is much better then that. Only one problem in this headphone is it's a bit heavy then other headphone. But all together, this is a best piece of headphone that anyone can get. I know it is expensive but it's durable and the price is worth it.

Stopped working after 1 year

By

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

They worked great for the first several months/excellent sound when the noise cancelling feature was on. I loved them...however, a few weeks ago the noise cancelling feature stopped working. Now when I turn on this option I only hear a loud, cracking noise. Would not recommend, poor quality for price point. At this price, they should last longer than 1 year.

GOOD SOUND

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

Sound quality is very good. However I do not notice much, if any, ambient noise reduction. Noise reduction is over promised, under delivered.

Outstanding performance, poor reliability

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

I've had these headphones for two years. They've demonstrated excellent sound quality and very good noise reduction. The stayhear tips are fantastic. Around year 1, the control switch stopped working properly as if the switch is semi-jammed. Just stretching or breathing will cause the volume to change. Unfortunately the switch hangs at the center of the chest, right where you place pressure using various equipment at the gym (reverse flys, incline presses, etc.) and it's simply not strong enough to handle these situations. I advise using wireless headphones for the gym, and save these for travel, etc.

Best ever

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

These are simply incredible, the noise cancellation is fantastic. Once I was walking past two trains and I couldn't hear a thing with the noise cancellation. However I have an iPhone 7 and it's clunky to carry around with the headphone jack adapter.

Great Sound and Noise Cancelling, but Poor Quality

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

I purchase these headphones a couple of years ago in the hope I would be investing in a quality product. The headphones work well as far as sound and cancelling noise, but the craftsmanship has a lot to be desired. Unlike most headphones, it's usually the cable that fails first -- I haven't had that issue with these. What has happened is the glue for the speaker casing failed with both earbuds (about 2 months apart), which makes the noise cancelling useless, because there is now a high-pitched noise when I try to use it. The speakers (without noise cancelling) still work.

Great Sound - Poor Design

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 White In-Ear Headphones:

I love my headphones! Sound quality, battery life. My issue is with the cable. After two years the cable that connects to my phone is frayed, wires exposed - about to break. For the money these did not last long. Would not buy again.
