The sound of the headphones is quite good and they do block the noise... the problem is that they are made of cheap materials or the design isn’t good. The thing is, that they break easily. The first pair was replaced over a year after I bought it, because the cable broke and there was a constant noise. The second pair lasted 18 months.. and again the cable broke in the joints and the left headphone stopped working. But this time the headphones were out of warranty. I think the price is quite high for a pair of headphones which won’t last more than 2 years...
Superb sound, noise cancelling and comfort
I treated myself to these last year and am so glad I did. I play most of my music via a Samsung phone while using the Poweramp app (I use Poweramp when using all wired and bluetooth headphones on Samsung phones as the Samsung music app doesn't have enough juice to power high end phones or headphones) and all I can say is that these earphones are amazing - they have brilliant sound quality for all kinds of music, podcasts and audiobooks - clear sound , deep bass and no distortion at all. I barely use half the volume setting on the Poweramp app when listening to these - can't understand why some reviewers state that they're not loud enough ( and I'm 60 years old) These little marvels are a lifesaver when I am using public transport - as soon as I turn them on I have a big smile every time due to the great sound quality and noise cancelling - I have many bose products and have never been disappointed.
The sound quality on these is decent, the noise cancelling works really well in very specific circumstances, and the earphones are well made. But there are some serious design flaws: 1. The large battery pack is right by the headphone socket, so if you try to put your phone or device into your pocket it gets caught on the battery pack and yanks the earphones out of the socket. 2. The earphones cancel a certain type of noise very well - mid/low frequency rumbles like airplane noise. But other types of noise are still very audible, particularly someone speaking nearby. The noise cancelling has no effect on this. 3. A well documented problem is the popping, which is particularly bad on trains - whenever another train passes, whenever the noise of the train is particularly loud, whenever the doors open and close there is a loud and disturbing pop. 4. The earbuds are slightly elongated vertically, which makes all three sizes fit slightly too loosely in the ear. It also means that earbuds from other headphones won't fit these ones, so you can't swap them for ones that do fit.
The Bose QC20 In-Ear Headphones come with a 2 year guarantee covering manufacturing faults.
