Bose QC20 In-Ear Headphones for Apple - Black is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 451.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sounding headphones, but awful durability These headphones sound great and cancel noise well, but they are awful from a durability standpoint. I've gone through 3, soon to be 4 pairs, in the last 4 years. The connections areas of the wires to the battery pack area damage easily from being put in your pockets. These are my daily headphones in NYC. I wear them while I commute, as well as while I work and listen to music. Needless to say, they get a lot of use. However, I always buy the SquareTrade protection plan because of how bad the durability is. For the price and how Bose markets these as your daily grind/commuter headphone, these should hold up for more than a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These will change your life! These little headphones will change your life! They're small, light and incredibly comfortable. You can put them in your pocket or your bag without any issue so they're great for traveling. I'm sure you're thinking, they can't really be great at noice cancelling and that's where you'd be wrong. These things block out everything and I refuse to fly without them. Whether its the roar of the engines or an unruly 2 year old in the row behind you, these are an absolute must for traveling. Finally, I've had these for over 200 flights and they're still going strong so durability has really blown me away - I'd hardly say I'm gentle with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Though these are very expensive, but I doubt you can't find a comparable pair of earphones anywhere else. To be honest, the sound quality is not phenomenal if compare to other products of similar prices. However, sometimes it's more important to hear the music clearly instead of blindly pursuing quality of sound. Because of the combination of QC20's fantastic noise cancelling quality and a decent sound quality, I can't live without these. In addition, because my ears are a little bit weird and cannot hold any kind of in-ear headphones other than sport ones and these, I'm so happy that I can finally listen to music while working out. Can't be more satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability Beyond Beleif I have owned my pair of Q 20's for just over a year. They perform exceptionally well for my rail commute and flights for business. This past weekend, much to my horror, I found that I had not removed them from my pants pocket and they went through a cycle in my washer an dryer! When I removed the clothing from the dryer and saw what I had done, I was already contemplating getting another pair. But, just for giggles, I decided to try them out. I plugged them into my iPhone and, remarkably, they worked as well as ever. Who would have thought. Maybe you could start promoting them as Washer/Dryer safe! Anyway, thanks BOSE for producing such a rugged, top-performing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QC20i is a sanity saver This was my first noise canceling device. The demo at the Bose store was excellent and I bought the QC20i. The true test of these earphones, however, was on a 6-hour flight with a stranger's "boisterous" 2-year old kid sitting behind me who was active the whole time. Turning on the noise canceling without inserting the plug into my iPhone, the jet engine drone and the kid's too loud voice were reduced to nearly a whisper. Connected to my iPhone with music turned on to low volume effectively masked the the engine and kid, and I could relax and go to sleep. Bliss! Totally worth the price for the sake of my sanity when traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ambient Sound Reduction I bought the new Bose QuietComfort 20 for Apple Products earphones for noise cancelling during long international flights. I researched the market for lots of products and read many reviews from differing sources about the BOSE earphones. Without a doubt these earphones have an amazing ability to reduce outside sounds. I turned them on for the first time and it went quiet - even with TV sound and conversation going on around me. These are the earphones for anyone interested in reducing surrounding sounds while still listening to music or watch a video. They sit comfortably in the ear and are not intrusive as many earphones and ear plugs can be. BOSE quality and sound are all there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I regret buying these We have the original over-head Bose noise cancelling headphones which are brilliant. I wanted the in-ear version for my daily train commute to block out conversations around me more than for listening to music. They don't work; I can hear conversations perfectly, they just sound more distant. Some days, the headphones regularly pop, which is uncomfortable. Music quality is ok, but I have to the turn the volume up high to block out sounds around me given the noise cancellation doesn't work. I've tried to get use to these, always make sure they're fully charged. I regret buying these. I'm just outside the 30-days ownership so stuck with them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from work great, for 24 months and that's all 1 star for the following reason: I have had two of these now. Bought my 1st one 4 years ago. Around the 2 year mark, I noticed the cord cracked & the headphones eventually quit working. I looked into it, emailed Bose, eventually, they replaced it as a "one time courtesy". Here we are, 24 months to the DAY! from when Bose replaced my 1st ones and the cord is cracking again! Bose 100% designs these things with what is called "planned obsolescence". Google it, read it, don't buy it. Bose will blame it on the consumer for not being gentle but that has nothing to do with it. So very disappointed.
