Bose Headphones rarely ever go on sale but for a limited time they’re having a brandwide sale, prices never go lower than this. I own a pair of QC15s and they’re a dream come true while traveling. They’re comfortable enough to wear for hours on end, by far and away the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever owned.
If you’re looking for a chanukah present for your spouse or parent these are pretty much as great as it gets.
Yes, they’re very expensive. But they’re built well and last for many years. Divide the cost over the amount of flights you take in 5 years and see if they’ll pay for you. Not that you can’t use them while you’re studying or any other time, but that’s when they really shine.
And the noise cancellation drowns out the drone of the airplane engine so well that when you take them off in middle of a flight you’ll be in shock that you were ever able to fly without them. They make for a peaceful flight and I sleep like a baby on the plane with them over my ears.
Oh, they’re also amazing for sleeping at night if you have a newborn that cries all night
Included is a small carrying case and two audio cables. One is standard for laptops/phones and one has a mic/remote for iPhone/iPod control and hands-free iPhone calling.
The QC3s are on-ear headphones that run on a rechargeable battery, and the QC15s are over-the-ear headphones that runs on a single AAA battery.
Personally I prefer the QC15s as I found them to be more comfortable to wear for longer period of times. They both have the same total noise-cancellation but the QC15 has a more balanced ratio of passive to active cancellation which I found more pleasant both while listening to music and while in the noise cancellation mode without music. Plus they’re cheaper than tha QC3s and they use AAA batteries which last longer than the rechargeables and you can always carry a spare AAA or purchase another worldwide.
But it is definitely a matter of personal preference as others find the QC3 to be better. I tried them myself and returned them.
