Review of Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

Today we are looking at the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones. Here is the review.

Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

So from a pro perspective the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones have excellent noise cancelling, I Have used these regularly over the last year on many, many flights and can’t say enough of how good the noise cancelling system is on these, not only do they cancel out the engine noise, but also will mostly drown out any crying babies as well, #justsaying. Also these are very comfortable for extended wear, have worn them on ten plus hour flights. these will keep working even when the Battery dies, you just loose the noise Cancelling ability.

On the Con side of these, I do a lot of Web conferences and the inline Mic on the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones is  sensitive and picks up a lot of the background noises so have to be extra conscious of it. Also I would prefer a wireless option, and if possible a noise cancelling mic would be a great addition, but so far have not found a headset that does both noise cancelling and a noise cancelling Mic…Anybody else know of one would love to try.

I think overall for if you need a noise cancelling headset for  travel the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones is excellent, as I said I would prefer something with a noise cancelling mic given all the web conferences I do, but these definitely are excellent sound quality and noise cancelling for long flights, I will cover a few more headsets that tick a few more boxes for me personally.
