Bose QC 11 headphones?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately and think these may be a good option to drown out the inane conversations I’m forced to hear on planes.  Anyone have experience?  I use an iPhone. 

Thanks

I travel quite a bit and have a pair of QC 25s and live them...my wife has a pair of QC20 in ear (in ear bug me too much after awhile)...great to see the QC35 is now wireless.

 

BTW, I believe I read somewhere that Sony's new house cancelling software exceeds Bose but never tried them...just live my Bose on a plan and arrive somehow calmer (not to mention it stops anyone starting up a conversation you dont qanr to be a part of...LOL).

 

Good luck,

I have an older model Bose over the ear kind for traveling, they are not wireless. My dad bought them for me when I first started traveling for work over 10 years ago, they still work perfectly. I did replace the ear cups as they broke down over time, but they sell replacements specifically for them. I use in ear headphones for day in and day out phone conversations and conference calls, but if I'm going to be on a plane or train for a few hours I much prefer the over the ear ones.

Big fan of the Bose QC 25.  Much better than in ear for long flights.  Wife has a pair as well.  Benefits of the QC 35 - no need to replace damaged cords.

Agree with the others... recommend the over the ears Bose headphones (25 and/or 35 based on your budget).  After an hour or two (especially on long international flights), my ears would get very tender/sore with in ear buds and/or on ear headphones.

I travel every week for work so I spend a lot of time on planes and/or Amtrak, and my life has gotten a lot better since buying the QC 25's. My only gripe is they're a bit big and obtrusive, but unfortunately my ears seem a bit misshapen relative to average and no in-ear option has ever worked for me.

I fly a bit, usually just shy of 100k miles a year, a few of them are asia trips and the rest domestic. I consider my QC35s one of the best investments that I have made in travel gear.

I'm rocking the old school over-ear QC2s still, but they still do the job just fine.

 

I would echo the complaints on the in-ear, especially since planes are adjusting the pressure as you climb/descend, the in-ear ones I had required a snug fit and the pressure changes made that a constant hassle to readjust.

I love my QC 25's.  You can use them on a plane.  You can use them in Spain.   You can use them in the rain - well, maybe not

 

Seriously - they are invaluable to me.  I use them traveling or any time that I want to tune out noise to work.  They also do a great job on conference calls with a built in mic.

 

My son bought himself a pair of headphones for college to study with.  Expensive item but he uses them constantly and paid using his own $.  He picked the Sony noise cancelling over the ear model.  I think his Sony's have better sound quality then the Bose and they were in the same price range.   The only thing that I did not like about the Sony's was the fact that you "swipe" over the ear piece to control them - google and you will see what I mean.
