They run on a integrated rechargeable lithium battery lasts up to 16 hours of use. They are listed to be one of the best noise canceling in your headphones on the market. The quiet comfort models have been updated and change throughout the years even though the newer models of over the ear headphones work extremely well the quiet come for 20 that we are reviewing today is the brands first in your headphone that has built in active noise cancellation.

  • Sound signature is very sculpted, and not for purists.
  • Light on accessories like extra eartips.


These in your headphones come with two version a standard Bose QuiteComfort 20 that is a non-Apple products and the QC 20 I that is designed to be compatible with Apple products and the both cost roughly the same. The part come for 20 headphones sit very well in the ears and are very comfortable they wear around 1.5 ounces and they come with a zip up cloth that also doubles as a carrying case that is half of the size of the case that the quiet comforter 15’s come in and this makes it very travel friendly. This is sign is very similar to the Bose is MIE to I headphones which you don’t put into your ear like other in your models rather than that they do sit very loosely on your ears which makes them comfortable to wear and they don’t cause any pressure. The headphones have the companies standard try port design making them have some extra space to maximize the Boses proprietary a acoustic voodoo and they have added two microphones to monitor all the noises that surround them. They also have excellent active noise cancellation that can illuminate any noise like a jet engine and a crowded train station or a crowded office.

This is countered with a mirror sound wave that allows you to listen to music in peace without any surrounding outside noise is interfering. And they have included a new processing chip in the Bose QuiteComfort 20 headphones. These headphones include three different sizes all flexible ” StayHear+”¬† ear tips that has attached wings that helps of brace itself against the outer ear cup. Many of the people that use these headphones go for the larger ear tip that gives you a snug fit and helps with the noise isolation and makes the noise cancellation more effective. At the joints of the white cable that leads to the left and the right ear bud is a small Second remote that controls the volume. This second remote also includes the microphone that allows you to make phone calls and switch for toggling that Bose calls aware mode. Once this is turned on it ramp sound noise cancellation so you can hear what’s going around you. This feature is extremely useful because you need to hear what’s happening around you if you’re on a busy subway or in a crowded office or just crossing the road.

BATTERY LIFE of Bose QuiteComfort 20

The battery life last long hours due to the lithium ion battery pack that is embedded in the control part of the cords. They are chargeable using a micro USB cable and the allegedly last up to 16 hours. Even if the battery dies the Bose QuiteComfort 20 noise cancellation still continues to do a very good job. And sounding is pretty good and passive mode every single sound sounds boosted and adds just a little bit more of a dynamic turn on the noise cancellation.


The noise cancellation on Bose QuiteComfort 20 headphones is very impressive you might think that if it’s an ear headphones that it would lack in noise cancellation but that’s far from the truth. You might have your speculations that a loose earbud won’t have an effect with noise cancellation like a snug fit headphones but these headphones have proved speculators wrong. These have been tested on the streets of New York and they in fact to completely drowned out most of the subway noises and it does a very good job. Even if the noise cancellation is amazing the sound quality with Bose headphones isn’t the best.

Both has a signature sound and they tend to be safe with it. This means that it can take on everything that you play any type of music genres even if they are well recorded or not very well recorded and they find a way to make both of them sound great. They have a smooth and nice out to them but it is not very detailed you do get plenty of bass but it’s not necessarily the tightest and most detailed bass. When you add the noise cancellation feature and all the digital processing the sound quality tends to loosen up a bit. Most noise canceling headphones don’t have a clear sound some have a faint hiss sounding to them. If nothing else matters to you except great sound quality then I would advise you not to get noise cancellation headphones.


Despite some of the minimal deal breaking features the Bose QuiteComfort 20 are a very popular choice amongst its buyers. They might not be able to compete with the most high end in your headphones but they have decent enough sounding qualities and are extremely comfortable to wear and they have amazing noise cancellation and they fit in most pockets, bags and backpacks. Many people might think that these headphones are slightly overpriced but for some of the features that is headphones have included in them it’s a fair price point. They are small and are very efficient to most travelers because no one wants to carry around large over the ear headphones like the quite comfort 15 or the Beats studio 2013.
