Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones In White for Samsung
Top Questions No one has asked a question yet! Be the first!
1.) Beats- Great packaging. Two cords with different connectors. Nice Case. Cloth. They do a good job of making you think you bought a nice product (and it is). Only concern is the headphones don't work without batteries. The headphone creates a pseudo noise cancellation.
2.) Bose25- Nice new case. Removeable cord (so it won't rip out if you jerk it accidentally ). Passive headphone (if battery dies, headphone still works - albeit without noise cancelation). Choice of white color.
3.) Sennheiser- nice cord, push to talk button (temporarily mutes NC and sound which is great for interruptions on airplanes).
4.) Bose/Audio Technica- just the basics. Bose simply an on/off switch.
1.) Bose- No question here, far surpassed the other two. Best Noise Cancelation. I did not notice a significant change in QC15- to QC25 on planes, however did notice a little difference in office.
2.) Audio-Technica- Good Noise Cancelation.
3.) Sennheiser- Not sure what happened here. Incredible sound, less than satisfactory noise cancelation.
4.) I don't think the Beats are official noise cancellation, but the headphone part is great at isolating outdoor noise, and they are very tight on the head. When you put them on without music, they offer decent noise cancellation.
One caveat. Be VERY careful with the blue cord's plugs. The metal end of mine somehow bent ever-so-slightly after barely any use, and it's unusable now. You can replace the cord, but it's $30 (which is a lot for me at this point) so I purchased the SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones replacement audio cable for less than $10 instead and it works just fine.
I'm a medical student which means that being productive is important. Unfortunately, living in a studio apartment with my boyfriend doesn't guarantee it will be quiet and distraction-free. Bose noise-cancelling headphones work wonderfully for muting sounds out and I can't hear the sounds in my environment if I'm playing music, even at a level of 14/100!!
These are also fantastic for airplanes! I never get plugged ears or hurt ears from the loud roar of the plane engines and can easily fall asleep on a 6.5 hour flight (I go to school away from home so I travel there 2x a year).
Best investment as a student and traveler.
