Its a Bose product
Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones - Apple devices:
I brought this product about a year ago. These are the best in-ear headphones I have ever owned. The noise canceling ability is by far the best I ever had. I had a problem with the right ear piece the other day. I would hear a loud squeal every time I put them in noise canceling mode. I took them back to the store and in five minutes I was walking out with a brand new pair. These headphones are great but BOSE customer service is the reason that I by original BOSE products.

Great for autistic people overwhelmed by sound
I have had these ear buds for over two years and I love them. I carry them with me every day & I wear them to sleep every night. They are very useful for a "high-functioning" person diagnosed with Asperger's like me, because they can reduce some background noise but are able to blend in as regular ear buds. They aren't Super Effictive as noise cancelling, if that's what you're looking for more than anything, I'd get ear plugs or drumming or construction worker's ear protecting headsets. They won't be able to play music, but they'll block more noise. If you're looking for something that is primarily able to play music, I would recommend these with all my heart. The main appeal is the music, and the secondary appeal is the noise cancelling. I've worn these at concerts, high school pep rallies, and even at drag show performances, and these ear buds help reduce the noise to a tolerable level. However, if you use them every day like I do, they'll get pretty worn. The soft plastic covering the box that you have to recharge has fallen off, and the wires on both sides of that have become exposed and I had to superglue them back. This is after a year of constant use/abuse by me, a high schooler, who shoves them into skinnyjean pockets frequently. They haven't been handled with much (or any) care bc they're part of my every day life, and they've held up surprisingly well. I've had to replace them twice over the years, once because one ear bud stopped working and so did the grey button that allows you to hear people with the noise cancelling on, and once because the grey button stopped working again, and because the wires were exposed. I would recommend these ear buds to anyone who has the money to get them!! I am going to wear these for the rest of my life, if possible. I've never had any other ear buds that fit me as well as these. I can (and do) wear them for hours and they don't hurt my ears at all. I plan on buying a second pair of these when I'm older and have more money. I'll be honest, I listen to music constantly, and I love the sound in these, but the main appeal is the fact it combines low-level noise cancelling with music and is comfortable, I don't really know or care much about the quality of sound because I'm 17, but I reckon it's pretty good. The only drawback is there's a bit of a hissing noise when the noise cancelling is on, and it does a funny thump when someone slams a car door because it isn't sure how to react.

These are my road warriors.
I love these headphones, I use them everyday. They make hearing a phone call in the store or on the street so much easier to hear. You can listen to your music or movies at a much lower volume in loud areas or on a plane. My wife and son liked them so much they bought a pair for themselves.

I bought these a couple of years ago and I love them. I tend to use them the most at night when my husband starts to snore. I just reach down the cord and flip on the noise-cancellation. While not perfect for just noise cancelation, by the time you add your favorite music, you are good to go. The sound is great and the headphones are comfortable. I thought they were somewhat pricey, but they have lasted my nightly use. I recommend them.

I bought this 1.5 years ago and absolutely LOVE it! Originally got the over-the-ear Bose Noise Cancelling headphones about 4 years ago to use on flights, but desired something more compact, so got these ear buds. They very effectively cancel noise on flights--just as effective as the over-the-ear headphones. (With both headsets, I find I am much less fatigued after a cross country flight--they really work!) The music quality is fabulous. I love these so much that I use them all the time--on the bus commute, when walking on noisy city streets. It is like being surrounded by a calm and peaceful cloud of music in the midst of a hectic noisy world. yes, they are expensive, but worth every dollar. I highly recommend them!

Better Than I Hoped
These noise cancelling in-ear buds are absolutely the best. I couldn't believe how effective the noise cancelling feature is! I often wear them on my train commute and they cancel out almost ALL external sounds. Plus the music quality of the ear buds is typical Bose quality with the full range of sound from highs to bass. I also love the fact that the buds are comfortable after wearing for 2 hours and fit securely in my ears thanks to the 3 sizes of ear buds to choose from. They don't loosen or fall out even when walking or running to catch a train! I was even more pleased with these than I hoped for, and I'm a big fan of Bose products (have several). Don't be sidetracked buy other nitpicky reviewers who expect these to be something other than what they are designed for.

I am now on my third QuietComfort 20 headphones as the first two cables failed (one after 6 months; the second after 18 months) despite very little use and no wear and tear. I just received my third replacement pair yesterday only to find out that the new iPhone wont have a headphone jack so now these are useless to me. When I requested a replacement several weeks ago, it would have been nice to know that
This headset is unbelievable. The sound quality is full, has depth, clear unbelievable . The noise canceling is the best in the industry. Being a audio maniac I could not believe what i heard. Flying a lot this is a indispensable accessory. I have the product now for more than a year. If lost or stolen I would immediately buy a new one. Waiting for the wireless one.
The bose noise cancelling headphones are amazing. They provide excellent sound and provide a nice option to the over the ear models. My only complaint is that they are not durable. After a few months the wire connections began to show wear so I began using them less frequently. Eventually, the left ear stopped working and now they are at the point of no return. My local retailer told me that they could provide a credit of $100 towards a new pair, however, after considering for a few days was informed that is no longer an option. Love Bose, however, their products are now like most other - disposable.
