Bose quiet headphones
Great headphones. Would recommend to anyone.
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.
I have spoken to Bose who have advised as follows.
In regards with your query, the QuietComfort 20 Headphones are passive headphones which means they can only work if they are connected to a device. The headphones will work on both Android and Apple/iOS product for music purposes but we need to look out for the headphones designated item because the on-board controls of the headphones might not work. The Noise Cancelling feature of the headphones will work, if there is enough battery charged on the headphones even when they're on-call or listening to music. The Noise cancelling will work in other devices either laptop, personal computer, iPOD, tablet or any other devices as long as they have a jack connector available. Please advise the customer to make sure the battery of their headphones have enough charged in order for the Noise cancelling feature to work.
