Overview

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

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.

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 the best noise reduction headphones Bose has ever made.

 

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.

 


 

Enjoy peace and quiet while you travel.

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.

Called Crutchfield for product information and ended up purchasing in the same phone call. Decided on Bose Quiet Comfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones specifically for Bose quality and for use with my iPods, iPhone and iPad. The cool Limited Edition Blue was a total plus.
