"Noise what noise Did you say something?"4.0 starson by Powerman247
Pros: Makes airline cabin noise go away! no more worry about sitting close to someone with a crying baby or going deaf from jet noise. When you add music or entertainment to the mix they take you away to another place and you tend to forget where you are.
Cons: I have a hard time wanting to say these have a con but if I had to. I would say that the need to have them powered on to listen to music is annoying. With that said Auto power Off would be a nice addition.
Summary: These are AWESOME! the sound is clear and crisp when listening to any type of audio. Have noise you want to block out just consider it gone. When using ear protection I usually have ringing in my ears but when using these I hear nothing and it is great.I selected 5 stars but somehow it is showing 4??? I vote 5 Stars.
As I sit here in the airport writing this I have them on and listinging to music and the noise of the terminal is gone and it is a little creapy watching people running around and knowing that just outside the headphones is loud crazy airport madness.
I could actually go take a nap.
I do agree from other reviews that when I first put them on and activate the noise cancelling I have a false sense of pressure on my eardrums but after a few moments it goes away and when I have music on I feel nothing.
I have found new enjoyment in all of my music and can hear things that have never heard before like background noise in the recording studio when the track was recorded. If you are thinking of buying these and are not sure you want to cough up the money you can go to the Bose website and have them take small monthly payments with your prefered debit or credit card and a small down payment later you will have these shippet right to your door. Pay for the extra shipping and you get them in less than 2 days. If you dont like them you have 30 days to send them back for a full refund. These are worth every penny for the piece of mind.

Also when you get these buy the Cell phone kit and these will work double duty and block out noise when on phone calls. I have tested these in loud environments with the phone kit and not only can I hear the call clear but the person I am talking to can hear me loud and clear as well. I use a Jawbone most of the time for phone calls and people talking to me said I sound better with the bose phone kit. Go figure.
