Comment:
I worked in an airport, where I used to see travelers with Bose headsets. A friend bought me a pair QC2's on the ear types. I instantly loved them, but wanted the bigger ones. So I upgraded to the QC15 and have been happy ever since. I've own these headphones for years. I used them primarily when flying on planes, because they cut out the crying baby, the guy talking next to me, reduces the chatter of the teenage friends and let's me listen to 'quiet'.. On very long flights they do a good job of helping me to sleep. The sound quality is good, although a little of high end seems a little soft. But more importantly, they are balanced without the extra bass boom from some of the competition. I'm happy with mine and yes, I've tried others. My QC15 are 5 years old and only recently did I need the ear pads replaced. Bose did it for $35.

The are really comfortable and sound great. But my pair broke in less that 1 1/2 years; the left side stopped working. And Bose wants $100+ to fix it.

Comment:
I've had the Bose noise canceling headphones for many years. That is what I want to comment on especially. Yes they are great phones and make traveling much more relaxing. But, as a previous reviewer noted, the company is also an important consideration. After many years of using my previous headphones, I decided to replace them. Turns out that Bose will upgrade previous owners at a very substantial discount. They were as pleasant and helpful as could be. I could not be more pleased with the interactions.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
