Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones


Recommended Posts

I'm sitting here listening to Aretha Franklin on my new Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones.

I am not kidding you, they are superb.

The noise of the AC and the Generators outside is gone and I'm left with the angelic warblings of AF.... On the aircraft they are even better.

Wonderful!

Heard really great reviews about them. So they really work so well? How long can you use them with your mp3 player before you run out of power? Would be awesome to use them while I'm shopping downtown.

Though last time I looked, the 3's were not available in Thailand, they were still selling the 2's {by the by, at a considerable premium} and looked blank when asked about the new model 3's.

i had QC2. it is so weak by design that, you can not use it as long as you expect when you pay for it. now i have an audio-technica ath-anc7 which has a better sound, much more stronger and i dont hear anything other than the music during my flights. before buying a bose, i suggest you to check out the reviews on amazon.com

I have owned my QC2 headphones for over 4 years now. At the two year mark, I had used them to the point that the ear pads had started to fall apart. I called Bose and, even though I was a year PAST the end of warranty, they sent me a replacement set of pads for FREE. Great company that stands behind their product. And... Bose offers a 30-day, full refund if not completely satisfied.

Old thread renewed..

A mate of mine gave me some Bose Quiet Comfort 3's, 2 weeks ago, and they are what the name suggests, very comfortable.

I already had some Audio Technica ANC7's Quiet point headphones, that are also very good.

Bose in Thailand are silly prices, 26,750 Baht for the Quiet Comfort 3's !! As opposed to 350 USD in US, or 300 Pounds in UK or 49,000 Yen in Japan.

I would say the Bose just take the title of best Noise cancelling headphones over the Audio technica set, alhough the sound quality is virtually the same, the Bose are lighter and on ear design, as opposed to over ear, so less sweaty in hot conditions, and of course lighter.

They really are very good and a worthy buy for regualr travellers, you will certainly notice the difference when coming off of a long flight.

So if you can afford them, they are a good buy.

Would I pay 26,000 Baht for them ? No.

350 USD ? Yes.

I like to listen to audio books on a long flight. Which earphones are the most efficient? I certainly don't want a set that sucks the battery power from my devices. I use a Creative ZEN, my Nokia phone and my Garmin GPS. If I could find a battery powered charger, that would solve the problem, but no luck finding one so far.

I use my Ipod classic for music on the flight and get at least 20 hours from it......I don't use it more than that on the flight, but it has never run out. sometimes though I hook it to my com on the layover in Narita to give it some juice for the remaining 10 hours.

The little Zen is rated for 10 hours, the Garmin for four hours although with the GPS part shut off I'm hoping the battery life will be better. I have an extra battery for my Nokia and really have no idea how long the batteries will last when in flight mode. Unfortunately the phone uses a small ear phone plug and the other two use the bigger plug.

Where is the best place to buy Bose on ear headphones in Bangkok? I have seen some at the istudio place in Emporium for around 7,500 THB. Emporium must be quite expensive as well so anyone know of any other places?? Fortune Town maybe?

Thanks.
