Supreme comfort and stellar anti-noise

If you do a lot of traveling or spend a lot of time in crowded rooms with chatty neighbors, the Bose QuietComfort 20i are easily worth the $299 for the best comfort and noise cancellation around, and they're much smaller than full-size cans such as the Beats Studio or Bose QuietComfort 15. The B&W C5 and Klipsch X4i offer more accurate sound but only have passive noise isolation. Overall, the QC20i are hands-down the most comfortable and most powerful noise-canceling earbuds on the market.

They don’t come cheap and you can get higher-fidelity sound at the price, but we just can’t ignore the fantastic noise cancellation the Bose QuietComfort 20i offer. These some of the best commuter headphones money can buy – and certainly the best in-ear noise cancelling headphones we’ve tried. They sound pretty great too, cementing their recommend award.

Great noise-cancelling headphones

from Gizmodo

If you want great noise-cancelling headphones from one of the best audio brands in the world, but don’t want to lug around giant freaking over-ear headphones, then these are the gizmos to soundproof you’re head. Sure, they’re a bit pricey in Australia, but you certainly get what you pay for.

Supreme comfort and stellar anti-noise make the Bose QuietComfort 20i the noise-canceling buds to beat

from Laptop Magazine

Frequent long-distance travelers should unequivocally get the Bose QuietComfort 20i for the noise cancellation alone. These earbuds are much more portable than over-the-ear noise-canceling headphones, and they're infinitely more comfortable for long periods than in-ear models. Among noise-canceling in-ear headphones, this is definitely the pair to beat. Most people will really like the sound, but bass addicts and purists might be better off with the Beats Studio or a set of unpowered in-ears like the B&W C5....

Frequent long-distance travelers should unequivocally get the Bose QuietComfort 20i for the noise cancellation alone.

Most people will really like the sound, but bass addicts and purists might be better off with the Beats Studio or a set of unpowered in-ears like the B&W C5.

For non-iOS device users, the identically priced Bose QuietComfort 20 (note the missing "I") has a mic/controller that works with Android, BlackBerry and Windows devices. But even if they don't offer audiophile-grade sound, the supreme comfort and stellar noise cancellation of the QC20i make these the noise-canceling buds to beat.

With first-class noise cancellation, clean detail, and a comfortable fit, the QC20i provide an enjoyable, almost meditative way to escape the outside world. However, those looking for premium sound to accompany the premium noise-cancelling technology may be slightly disappointed with the headphones’ tendency to render a glossy reproduction of their favorite tracks. If you’re looking for an audiophile-level sonic experience to accompany you into the void, the QC20i will likely leave you unsatisfied. But if you simply crave clear sound and placid quiet, Bose’s newest family member delivers.

Ultimately the QuietComfort 20 earphones aren’t cheap, but they solved a problem for me. The QC20s cancel noise very well — thus justifying their reason for existing — and they are good earphones too, so you won’t feel too bad about spending all that money. The battery pack is a little annoying, but rubber banding it to your phone will solve that problem. And then, above all, be careful with those ear tip holders! Bear these tips in mind and you’ll be in for some very effective, super compact, noise cancellation with Bose’s QC20s.

They're fantastic if you can afford them

from TechRadar

The Bose QuietComfort 20s are easily some of the best sounding in-ear noise canceling headphones we've ever put through their paces. Of course, for $300, they better be. So ultimately we're forced to stand by our original summation, if you have $300 to spend on in-ear noise canceling then these are probably for you.

A giant leap forward for noise cancellation earphone

from PC Magazine

Simply put, this is by far the best noise cancellation we've ever heard. Like previous Bose models, as well as competing models from a variety of competitors who slowly started to catch up, the QC20 blocks out wide swaths of ambient noise, be it the whirr of an air conditioning unit or the drones...More

Simply put, this is by far the best noise cancellation we've ever heard. Like previous Bose models, as well as competing models from a variety of competitors who slowly started to catch up, the QC20 blocks out wide swaths of ambient noise, be it the whirr of an air conditioning unit or the drones and hums of trains and planes. But the QC20 does something no previous pair has managed, and at first, it can be disconcerting: It actually blocks out the human voice.
