" ...  I have always used Bose, been over two years so needed another headset for all around listening.  ...  "

" ...  Then, the sound quality sounded like 8kHz telephone line. ... Back to my wired cheap'o'phones that deliver the quality sound that is far above and beyond compared to this Bose product.  ...  "

" ...  The noise canceling really allows me to focus and enjoy my day.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Although the noise cancellation is impressive, everything else with these headphones are average, at best. ... Also, I did not need this level of noise cancelling: the low noise cancelling feature was enough.  ...  "

" ...  The band is sturdy, it folds neatly into the case, and has padding where it rests on my head. ... Can wear this comfortably for hours and it doesn't hurt.  ...  "
comment
" ...  However, I got tired of the cord always catching on things, and after trying a bunch of in-ear headphones, I decided it was time to get a bluetooth enabled over-ear set. ... This one has the music/sound controls on the right ear that my previous model didn't have, which is a huge plus. ... I can expand the band a bit and let the cups rest a bit more on my ears, and that helps, but I do have to switch back and forth between the two positions.  ...  "

" ...  I bought these prior to a business trip to Europe which was going to have 20 plus hours of flights to help drown out the drone of the airplane engines. ... Not only did they drown out any ambient noise on the planes, during my entire trip I did not have to charge these headphones at all and I used them on every flight. ... While I was skeptical about the cost, they are worth every penny if you travel!  ...  "
