_
"They are very comfortable and have a long battery life."
_
"Pros:- Incredibly lightweight- Battery lasts a long time- Very comfy to wear for long periods- Noise Cancellation is wonderful- Sturdy caseCons:- I wish they had a rechargeable battery built in (nothing some eneloops won't fix)- PriceI did a lot of research and talking with friends and colleagues who are big into headphones."
_
"The battery life is good, if you can remember to shut them off."

Cable

Cable:
"My only (small) criticism is that you have to change the cable that connects to it depending if you are using a phone player that has remote capabilities or not."
_
"I also appreciate that the Sony uses a standard jack design for the cord, meaning it can be easily replaced for a few bucks if damaged."
_
"Don't be fooled by the flash and popularity of Beats that are not made very well and may have to replace the cord (twice so far).Best endorsement yet a young man sitting next to me on a flight with his Beats looked at me sympathetically as I pulled my Bose NC headphones out of the case."
_
"Both of these recently failed for me -- the ear pads have a soft leather-like coating that started flaking, and the cord started failing."
_
"Nice carrying case, (better than any other Bose) and cord detaches from headset so not as big of issue with cord tearing as previous Bose I've had."
_
"Love the quick release cord as I have ripped it out a few times already."
_
"I also appreciate that the Sony uses a standard jack design for the cord, meaning it can be easily replaced for a few bucks if damaged."
_
"A longer cord would be appreciated for television viewing."
_
"I think the build quality is good, although I would prefer a more substantial cable."

Listening

Listening:
"Also, they don't really do great while listening to a lot of bass."
_
"These headphones are not only the very best when it comes to blocking out noise and listening to music, but they are comfortable and super stylish in brown! "
_
"Negative sides: price vs sound quality = poor, when you listening, after 10-15 minutes i have some discomfort, i think noice cancelling option is making me alittle bit bad feeling after several minutes use, but i think i need some time to be used to it."
_
"It's decent for 2-4 hours listening."
_
"They're compact for traveling, plug into your iPod for listening, and really do an excellent job at eliminating engine noise (and the jabber sitting next to you in coach class)."
_
"Conclusion: For noice cancellation is Good, but for listening music with quality, it better choose headphones without noice cancellation, but also with high price, from 100$ and above."
_
"You can skip the boring and tedious airplane announcements instructing you on how to buckle you seatbelt and what to do in the event of a water landing, Just keep your Bose headphones on and enjoy listening to what's going on in your own world."

"If you are used to listening in a live room with good equipment (lots of solid surfaces in my house), you will be impressed with the sound from these headphones."
