Our take on the Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones

by David Brown
Bose

Get relief from ambient noise

Bose has long enjoyed a solid reputation for the quality and performance of their noise reducing headphones. Compared to earlier models, the QuietComfort® 15 headphones reduce more noise across a wider range of frequencies, thanks to advances the company has made in their proprietary Acoustic Noise Cancelling® technology. Quite simply, these are among the very best noise reduction headphones ever made.

Bose QuietComfort15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones

Cutaway An inside view of the sophisticated technology behind the QuietComfort® 15's amazing noise-cancelling ability.

Better noise cancellation with innovative Bose technology

The QuietComfort® 15 headphones feature microphones on both the outside and inside of each earcup that pick up the ambient sounds in your listening environment. Special circuitry inside the earcups then reacts instant by instant to produce an opposite, canceling signal. This circuitry efficiently minimizes unwanted external noises, so they don't interfere with the music from your portable player or the dialogue from in-flight movies.

The QuietComfort® 15 headphones also feature Bose's innovative TriPort® technology. It uses tiny vents in the earcups to produce a tonally balanced sound with deep, rich bass.

Take calls. Take control.

Bose includes a headphone cable made for select Apple products. A three-button remote control built into the cable lets you conveniently answer, end, and switch between phone calls, control the volume of your calls or music, and pause, play, or skip through your songs. You can even enjoy hands-free conversations on your iPhone®, thanks to the remote's built-in microphone. The microphone also lets you take advantage of the voice control feature found on many of the latest iPhone, iPod® and iPad® models. Just hold down the button and say your command.

A comfortable listening experience

The earcups feature a plush cushion material that feels great. Plus, their around-the-ear design helps further seal out distracting noises. An adjustable headband helps ensure comfortable listening for hours on end, making these headphones great for long trips. You also get convenient portability — the earcups fold flat for easy storage in the included carry case. The single-sided cord helps resist tangles, and you can even disconnect the cord altogether and just let the QuietComfort® 15 headphones wrap your ears in soothing, restful silence.

Features

Overview: The Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones feature exclusive Bose advancements in noise reduction technology, allowing you to hear less noise and more of your music and movies. It offers a lightweight fit that stays comfortable for hours.

In-Line Remote Control: The QC15 headphones include two cables, one with an in-line remote control and microphone, the other without. The in-line remote is compatible with select iPods, iPhones, and iPads. Controls include volume, skip forward or backward, play, pause, accept call, reject call, end call, and engage Voice Control (with compatible iPods). Compatible iPhone/iPods include iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, 2nd generation iPod classic (120GB), 3rd generation iPod classic (160GB, introduced in 2009), 2nd/3rd/4th generation iPod touch, 4th/5th/6th generation iPod nano, 3rd/4th generation iPod shuffle, and iPad/iPad 2.

Note: Only the in-line remote is incompatible with other iPods. Used only for listening, the QC15 headphones are compatible with any iPod, iPhone, and most other devices with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Triport Acoustic Headphone Structure: TriPort acoustic headphone structure, another Bose exclusive, features tiny vents in the earcups to enable a tonally-balanced audio performance; including reproduction of deep, low notes from relatively small and lightweight headphones.

Active Equalization: Active equalization electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response, enabling outstanding audio performance.

Improved Noise Reduction: The Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones offer significantly improved noise reduction across a wider range of frequencies. Proprietary Bose innovations now use microphones both inside and outside each earcup to sense and reduce more of the sounds around you.

Redesigned Ear Cushions: Redesigned ear cushions use new materials in a proprietary design to establish a critical acoustical seal; helping to further reduce noise while providing a comfortable fit.

Single/Detachable Audio Cable: The Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones utilize a single, detachable audio cable to offer greater convenience than standard Y-cables.

Fold-Flat Earcups: Fold-flat earcups rotate 90-degrees for easy storage and portability in the included case.

Slim Carrying Case: The Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones come with a slim carrying case to help protect the headphones and accessories during travel.

Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones

Written By Glenn, Kentucky on Monday, August 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overall, the quality is what I would expect from Bose. I mainly purchased these to help drown out the background noise when I work (usually from home office), which would include when I listen to teleconference calls (but works as a listen-only mode on office phone; despite mini-jack adapter to fit my landline phone, the microphone on the cord does not function in this type of set-up--and the sound comes out from only one earpiece). However, it works great as a "2-way" plugged into my iPhone, which is just as described). Sudden, loud noises are not very muffled at all (likely a good thing, for safety sake) but constant, or monotone sounds become dampened quite well (white noise from lawnmowers, vacuum cleaners, distant conversations, etc). The purchase was well worth it, for my situation; very happy with it overall.
Pros:
Adjustable, overall very comfortable headset; easy to use/store; high-quality acoustics when listening to music, as one expects of a Bose product.
Cons:
After an hour or so of wear though, the muffs do make my ears/surrounding head rather hot, somewhat sweaty under the cushion part (though obviously will depend on surrounding temperature--in summer here, my office is usually in mid-70's range).

Ambient noise is nearly gone

Written By Chuck, Sacramento, CA on Friday, August 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I first put these on and turned them on the noise from the ceiling fan disappeared. I was impressed. I put them on in a quiet place and I could hear a very slight electronic white noise. In the gym all the noise from treadmills and the like were eliminated. Now for the sounds I want to hear my iPod tunes. Not impressed. Not much better than Bose earbuds I had before. I was expecting a little more spacious sound than I got for an over the ear headphone. Bass seemed rather weak. Having used and preferred Bose products since 1977 I was finally less than wowed by one of their products.
Pros:
Ambient noise reduction
Cons:
Sound quality not much better than earbuds.

Earphones!

Written By Tony, Pittsboro on Thursday, August 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They didn't sound that well when I first plugged them in, but after checking the settings on my laptop it was apparently set to full treble and lowest bass and it sounded very tinny. I couldn't tell before I got these earphones, the sound is much improved now. They don't do a total noise reduction, I have had much cheaper earphones perform similarly but then again, those didn't last very long. I hope these do. They are comfortable but not a perfect fit, after a while I want to take them off.
Pros:
They perform well at everything but have room for improvement, considering the price.
Cons:
Didn't come with an adapter for a full size connector to a regular amplifier (like Marantz),I had to order it separately.

I have owned Bose headphones for several years. I see all the new brands flooding the market, but I am not convinced that they equal Bose technology. Since I have several Bose sound devices and I am very well pleased with each one, I think I will stay with my trusted friends, Bose. Can't beat them.

Worth the price

Written By DaveF, Colorado Springs, co on Saturday, July 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Two hour flight delay in the noisy St Louis Airport... Tune it all out and watch top gear. In flight in a small grounded commuter jet... Relax and listen to music at a comfortable volume. I previously had a pair of Sony noise reduction headphone. The reviews stated they were not quite as good as the Bose. I found they work pretty well. But, the Bose are simply much better. I am glad I spent the extra money. The current sale improves affordability.
Pros:
Noise reduction Sound quality Construction quality Includes iphone capable cable with microphone and volume control Hard, protective case I prefer the replaceable batteries used in this model vs built in rechargeable battery.
Cons:
Pricey Over ear design makes them slightly bulky

Bose® QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling

Written By BobM, Oviedo, FL on Sunday, June 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have not used these on a plane yet, will take them to Europe in a few weeks to test on an airplane. I did however test them in my pickup back seat with my aftermarket exhaust system and actually had to look at the instrument cluster at the TACH to make sure the truck engine was still going. I could not believe how quiet these phones were and yet very clear music sound.
Pros:
Light weight, great at cancelling noise and clear music.
Cons:
The access to the battery compartment needs some work for easier replacement of the battery.

Very good

Written By CCC, Belmont, MA on Saturday, May 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was very pleasantly surprised. I had never before owned _good_ high-fidelity headphones, much less noise-canceling 'phones. I was skeptical, but I took a chance because I trusted Crutchfield's guarantee. They sound wonderful -- better than I expected -- and the noise cancellation is very effective, again better than I expected. I have fastened my tiny iPod shuffle to the headband just above the left earphone, and fastened the cable such that nothing dangles. I walk regularly for exercise; and, when I do, I wear this rig and listen to what I've loaded in the iPod. BTW, I found it necessary to use the Equalizer that's built into Apple's iTunes application, and to save an equalized version of each audio file I intend to load into the iPod for playing through these 'phones. Music that sounds fine when played through my audioengine 5+ speakers without custom equalization does NOT sound good through there 'phones unless I have applied appropriate equalization. WITH appropriate equalization, music sounds better in these 'phones than through my speakers.
Pros:
Excellent sound quality (with equalization); very effective (good enough for me) noise cancellation; light weight; and requires just one AAA cell, which lasts a long time.
Cons:
1. It's not waterproof, so I can't wear it in the rain. Also, I fear that my oily salty sweat will ruin its nice cushions. 2. It is not designed for anything to be attached. I wish my iPod could be attached to it more easily and neatly. Also, I'd like to be able to attach a security cable to it, so it weren't so likely to be stolen if left it unattended for a little while.

Great for cancelling some of the clean room blower noise, environmental chamber noise.
Pros:
Fits comfortably over the head and covers the ears nicely.
Cons:
Doesn't cancel out all noise, but what it cancels out makes it much more tolerable in an environment with white noise.

Excellent on planes

Written By Anonymous, New York, NY on Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I can only speak to using these headphones for listening to music or movies during flights, but for that purpose they work very well, eliminating almost all of the "droning" and allowing a great listening experience without the need to crank up the volume unreasonably high just to hear your content over the noise of the plane. I much prefer these to the on-ear model but that is likely a matter of personal preference. Would recommend without hesitation.
Pros:
Very comfortable, good sound, great for in-flight entertainment
Cons:
Little pricey, somewhat large to carry around (though the included carry case is done very well)

Bose headphones

Written By jmsmith3, Southern California on Saturday, March 01, 2014
 
I received these for a Christmas present and they replaced a pair that was 10 years old. The quality is excellent in every respect but I am having a hard time with the battery feature. My old ones did take a battery so I have to get use to it. You also have to turn them on and that means turn them off when not using them. This is what I forget to do and of course they are stone dead when I go to use them the next time. For a few more dollars, I suggest you get the one that has the rechargeable battery..
Pros:
Excellent sound quality and noise reduction is superior. They are very comfortable and come with a hard case for traveling.
Cons:
The battery drains fast if you are someone like me who forgets to turn it off when done using them.

Great sound from bose

Written By Yas, Queens, NY on Thursday, January 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My first pair of Bose noise cancellation headphones have indeed delivered their promise of fantastic sound. The noise cancellation feature is the best i've experienced. Compared to the beats cancellation the Bose's are vastly superior. when you switch them on you clearly tell that sound from the outside is being reduced but not completely gone.Though i will say depending on what is making the sound you wont hear it and this is without music going. Sound Profile of these i would say is they are more on the bass heavy side but clarity is not lost either. They require one AAA battery to fully function. The wire for me is too long ,six feet long. I find too often walking around my house i snag the line and the jack is yanked out the left side of the headphone. Something like 4 feet sounds better
Pros:
Very light for the size Battery life is quite long Inline mic with controls for IOS fully functioning
Cons:
The jack wire is too long would've liked if the travel case was hard plastic inline mic controls not fully functioning for android 4.4

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Quality of the sound was everything I expected. I really liked how the cable plugged and unplugged from the headset which will make it easy to replace if I break the cable. The quality of the phone calls when connected to my iPhone was a nice surprise. i have asked for comments for the person on the other end and they were very happy with the quality as well. Way better than my Pro Plantronics blue tooth adapter.
Pros:
Comfort and quality sound
Cons:
They don't work without a working battery and being turned on. I just carry a spare battery with me.

Bose QuietComfort 15

Written By Tom K., Mission Viejo, CA on Saturday, January 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these headphones solely on the basis of online reviews and in regards to other Bose products I own.

The construction is lightweight and they are very comfortable. I really like the 2 different cables that come standard with the QC 15s. One has an available mic. and volume control option and there's also an attachment for use in airplanes. The other great feature about the cables is if they become detached on one of the ends, you can easily purchase a replacement pair at a fraction of the cost for a new set of headphones.

The sound quality is crystal clear and I can hear ambient sounds on films I couldn't pick up earlier. And in that regard it's like watching a BR movie for the first time. I've haven't tested the noise canceling on other headphones but these seem to work just fine.

My only complaint is a dead battery will render the headphones useless. The headphones should be able to work without the noise canceling feature if the battery died but that doesn't seem to be the case. Perhaps it's something Bose could develop in future headphone models.

The QC15's are excellent noise canceling headphones and they live up to the quality, reputation, and "ahem" price that Bose is known for.
Pros:
Excellent sound quality, comfort, multiple cables, and convenient carrying case.
Cons:
A dead battery will render the headphones useless.

"Coolness" is not a top priority at 50+; however, everything else is clearly 5 star!
Pros:
Sound Quality Comfort Noise Reduction
Cons:
I little high in price but the quality exceeds expectations.

Bose QC15 Headphones

Written By JimD, Belle,WV on Monday, December 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
For me they are very comfortable and don't irritate my ears like earbuds do . Makes my old music that I transfered from my records sound just as I remembered them from years ago. The quality of my record albums sound clear again which I was unable to hear using other headphones. Subtle background music came in clear. No instrument over powered the others unless orginally in the recording. I love these headphones!! The around the ear and noise cancelling features work great...the wife had to hit me with an object to get my attention - I couldn't hear her. Power switch must be on to use and be sure to turn them off when finished using them to conserve the battery.

Excellent noise-cancelling headphones

Written By Audiophile, Seattle, WA on Thursday, December 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Top-notch in every way. Most comfortable pair of headphones I've ever worn, too. These are excellent at noise cancelling from the moment you place them on your ears, without even turning on the noise-cancelling feature! That's how well they fit and seal out noise. Fabulous sound.

First Bose Product

Written By Sean, Everett WA on Friday, December 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was amazed at how these headphones just block everything out. It would be nice if they played music without the noise canceling turned on. They fit very well and do not push down on my ears like some headphones can.
Pros:
Sound, wearing comfort
Cons:
Cost

Fantastic set of headphones. The clarity is amazing -- and the noise cancelling is out of this world. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a quality set of headphones.

Excellent sound and Significant Noise Reduction

Written By Phil, Boston, MA on Friday, November 29, 2013
 
They may not look as cool as certain other trendy brands on the market now, and they are a bit bulky for everyday use on the train while commuting or at work, but they are perfect for air travel. They block out substantially all engine and wind noise any make long flights much more bearable. Music and movies sound great on them too. Well worth it.
Pros:
Noise cancellation is fantastic as is the audio quality.
Cons:
Would be nice to have Bluetooth connectivity and a rechargeable battery.

Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Nois Camcelling headphones

Written By Stay Informed, Tucker, GA on Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Quiet Comfort 15 eliminates all engine noise and road noise made by my old truck. It allows me to listen to books on tape at a low volume. When camping all sounds of annoying generators are eliminated. Very pleased.
Pros:
Replacement ear pads are available.
Cons:
Would like a cord that would reach from front pocket to headphone, without having to roll the remaining cord in a circle and securing with a twist tie.

Bose Quiet 15

Written By doug, Prescott AZ on Sunday, September 29, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I thought this noise canceling headset would solve my issues with noise reduction. I was looking for noise canceling that would cancel voice noise from TV, but it doesn't. When people in my house are talking and I don't wan'I to hear it I try to block there speaking, so I put these Bose QC15, voice noise gets in. I also noticed on the sound quality which is very good, but if you ever tried Sony Headphones, with the 40mm driver, you will be blown away at how much better the sound is in the mid range and especially the bass range. I'm going to try Sony's new Noise canceling headphones when they come out this Oct 15th, 2013
Pros:
good for blocking a steady noise like air conditioner fans. Comes with a good carrying case to protect. Almost feels good wearing them
Cons:
not good for blocking voice noise. Does not have good music quality. It sounds good, but just too flat of a sound. If you want really excellent sound try Sony.

Bose QuietComfort 15 Rocks!

Written By RobP, Clemmons, NC on Sunday, September 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After hearing some friends' sets of QC 15s, which they, being frequent flyers, purchased for their use while flying, I knew it was time to replace my old set of headphones. The Bose, while not the most comfortable headphones I've ever put on, are the most comfortable pair I've ever owned. Their dynamic range is fantastic, and the bass response is clear and strong, but not overbearing. But, of course, their claim to fame - the noise-cancelling feature - is unmatched. The moment I saw that Crutchfield had placed the Bose QC 15s on sale, I went online and placed my order; and, as I expected, they arrived in just a couple of days. Thanks, Crutchfield, for making it happen for me - again.
Pros:
Noise reduction lives up to its claims. Sound is full and spacious.
Cons:
Ear cushions could be fuller and a bit more comfortable,

Got What I Wanted

Written By Brad, Raleigh, NC on Sunday, September 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These headphones do exactly what they're supposed to do, that being "cancel" noise. While wearing these, any static noise is filtered out. I can hear voices occasionally if the music volume is very low but I'd almost prefer that in case someone is screaming my name at work. Very comfortable, haven't had to change the batteries with a couple weeks of frequent use, and they look sleek and clean. Maybe not the most top tier audio quality, but that's not why I bought these. Still a very satisfied customer!
Pros:
-Comfortable -Block noise well -Ease of use -Good looking product
Cons:
-Not "top tier" audio quality
