Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The only drawback is the detachable cord."
_
"The various cables and adapters are a great addition but I bent the long cable on the airplane and now I can't find a replacement."
_
"Being able to unplug the cord from the headset and cord only on one side a real plus to me."
_
"- Battery life is pretty good (1 size AAA)- Nice to have the option to pull out the cable just for noise canceling use."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I had read that some people had problems getting the on-ear pads to settle in, but they are very comfortable and the seal is relatively strong."
_
"They are very comfortable, well built (I will admit they FEEL a bit cheap, but I haven't had any problem with the construction, I think it's pretty sturdy plastic) and they sound great."
_
"Great sounding headphone that is very comfortable."
_
"I strongly recommend these as they hare comfortable to wear (not too much pressure on ears), the sound quality is OK (for noise-cancelling headphones anyway), and the noise cancelling works quite well."
_
"They proved to be an excellent buy, especially at the price from Amazon, improving the quality of my flying experience, very comfortable too, thoughtfully & well packaged in their own easy to use carrying case."
_
"Sound quality is clear with good bass, noise canceling is superb, and it's very comfortable on my head and ears."

Fit

Fit:
"kills nearly 60-70% of noisesound quality is goodcon:quality of box is quite cheap (Chinese...)headsets doesn't fit well in the boxmine was broken, mean there was an terrible noise on the left speaker when I pressed it a little closer to the earwill return themgeneral: a little bit to expensive for the quality, noise canceling really works! "
_
"I don't wear them hours on end, so I cant speak to the comfort level of prolonged use, but I don't have any complaints about the comfort and fit using them on and off throughout the day when I want some isolation."
_
"This makes it fit well in my laptop bag, that just like yours, is already full with work stuff when traveling."
_
"The earphones adjust well to fit my head but my left ear gets sore after a while."
_
"So if you are a frequent flier and it fits you well, you will have use for it."
_
"As far as comfort, maybe these just don't fit my big head very well."
_
"Like another reviewer mentioned, you really need to tinker with them to get the right fit for both sound and comfort, esp with that pain in the ass adjustment bar."

_

Music

Music:
"Unfortunately the music doesn't sound as good as any of the other pairs I tried."
_
"It's also weird that any music playing just gets *louder* when you turn on noise canceling."
_
"So in the end, they are still not as good as my $80 Sony cans in terms of music quality."
_
"Using the headphones as a noise filter without music is wonderful, too."
_
"Comparable with QC2 and far better than QC3Cost: $150 - half the price of both Bose models - makes it a clear win for meSummary: very hard to justify the extra $150 for the Bose models and if you want to listen to music the QC3s are simply not good."
_
"I had them connected to an iPod touch 4th gen and they sounded great while watching a movie and listening to music."
_
"but after a while i just forget about it and enjoy my music, which i guess is not much of a problem!"
_
"i'm a 23 year old who travel in public transportation, i was able to listen to my music on the train while someone sitting behind was having a conversation."
_
"turned on the noice cancelling on and i was barely able to hear the conversation and train and still enjoy my music."
_
"Listening to music I could easily hear the people around me talking at normal voice levels."

Noise

Noise:
"I read various reviews about the sound and noise cancelling not being the best, but it exceeds my personal expectation and standard."
_
"kills nearly 60-70% of noisesound quality is goodcon:quality of box is quite cheap (Chinese...)headsets doesn't fit well in the boxmine was broken, mean there was an terrible noise on the left speaker when I pressed it a little closer to the earwill return themgeneral: a little bit to expensive for the quality, noise canceling really works! "
_
"Audio quality not so good with noise cancelling turned off but excelent with it turned on."
_
"What was left was just background noise and no easily distinguishable voices--easy to ignore."
_
"Pros:- Comfort- Decent Noise Reduction- Uses replaceable battery (can carry a spare)- Cost - very reasonable at discounted price or 150 (200 cheaper than comparable QC3)- Size - folds compact and stores in small storage caseCons:- Not that loud- Noise reduction not as good as over the ear modelsSummary - if you really want the on-the-ear style - get the Denons but if you give the over the ear style a try - you will want the Bose QC15s."
_
"The noise canceling feature is not great."
_
"- Works great for what it's designed for: sound quality and noise cancelling work well."
_
"I was looking for a decent noise cancelling headphone for my new, noisier work environment and my occasional travel (~1 business trip a month)."
_

_
"The removable wire is a great feature as well as the ability to continue listening without noise cancelling (IE without batteries)."

_
"Prior to this pair, I had been extremely happy with a pair of Radio Shack branded $50 noise-canceling that lasted me 5 years, but in testing out the cheaper pairs, I was not satisfied, so I decided to make the leap into the Bose price range."
_
"I know vendors do this a lot, MSRP a product at a ridiculous price and then claim it's on sale for something more reasonable, but I don't care."
_
"They are very comfortable, well built (I will admit they FEEL a bit cheap, but I haven't had any problem with the construction, I think it's pretty sturdy plastic) and they sound great."
_
"I thought both those were good but the Denon compared and taking the price into account they are worth it."
_
"Highly recommend these for the $139 price tag they out perform the BOSE series hands down."
_
"Pros - Great price, fantastic sound, great case to hold 'em in, super easy to use and if the battery wears down they still work."
_
"Overall, a great purchase and, as I said in the title, for half the price of the Bose."
