OVERVIEW

Immersion when you want it, environmental awareness when you need it.

QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones let you enjoy better sound every day, everywhere you go. Turn on noise cancelling to reduce surrounding distractions, or activate Aware mode to hear what’s happening around you. Proprietary StayHear+ tips provide a soft, secure fit. The inline microphone and remote let you switch easily to calls and control of certain functions on your device. These headphones are designed for Samsung and Android devices.

Lose yourself in your music

QC20 headphones let you experience music on the go as never before. You'll enjoy lifelike, digital sound quality that stands out from the noise around you—plus the freedom of an in-ear headphone. StayHear+ tips physically block some noise while our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology electronically reduces most of what's left. It's just you and your music, even in noisy environments.

Tune in to your environment

But there are moments when you may not want to be so cut off from your surroundings. Crossing a city street. Waiting for airline gate announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you're back in touch with the sounds around you—while your music keeps playing, and you still experience some noise cancellation.

Advanced ear tip technology

And your music's even easier to enjoy when you're not fussing with your headphones. Proprietary StayHear+ tips create a soft, secure fit with no need to force them into your ears. The cone shape spreads contact evenly across the ear for maximum comfort, and forms a gentle seal that contributes to the headphones' full-spectrum noise reduction.

You're in control

Controls are all at your fingertips. Use the slider switch on the control module to turn noise cancelling on and off. The inline microphone/remote houses Aware mode and call answer/end buttons. The 4-button remote, provides volume and music control plus access to voice-recognition apps, like Siri or Google search.

Rechargeable battery

The lithium-ion battery (located inside the module) charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies your music still plays with performance equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones. When not in use, simply store your headphones and cables in the included carrying case.

FEATURES
  • Bose noise cancelling technology, shut out the world and focus on your music

  • Aware mode to hear what’s around you at the press of a button
  • Deep, clear sound from the Active EQ and TriPort technology
  • Soft, and secure for hours of listening from proprietary StayHear+ ear tips

I have had my QC20i earbuds since 2014 (or there about) - and I've loved them ever since. Their comfort is unmatched in any other earbud product I've tried, and there isn't another noise-cancelling earbud that even comes close. Remember - we're talking about earbuds, not over the ear headphones (which will always cancel more sound). I've worn mine nearly daily - when I sleep, when I need peace and quiet, in the chair at the dentists office (trust me, they're life savers there) - and obviously on planes. To be fair - I'm actually on my third pair of them - as I've had the first two have issues with one of the earbuds splitting about 1/2 way through the warranty period. But THAT'S what makes this such a worthwhile purchase: you see, I haven't had a single issue with product support. Bose stands behind their products in a way that I've almost never seen a company do. It's superior to even Apple Care - by miles. If you make no other high-end audio purchase - buying this (or any other Bose product) is definitely the way to go. I know that I'm not buying anything less.

On the average, it needs replacement every few months, I am on 4th replacement, and now the Aware Button just broke again, this time in the span of just about 2 months. Playing around with the cable position has shown that it's likely due to bad cable join within the battery/control compartment. Bose warranty is amazing, but the inconvenience of making a trip to have it replaced, and knowing that your 300USD only last as long as a year(Warranty coverage), it's rather an expensive investment for what it is. High-pitch sound likely due to sweat/moisture build up, once dried should be fine, which indicates that this headset is not build for high humidity area like tropical Asia(where I am at) or summer time. Having a good customer support and warranty replacement is amazing, but having the product replaced/exchange every few month only show poor quality build. This product has the best sound in its class, now that Bose released version 2 of this product, I am not sure will it improve(Aware Button) but I will only hope they replace my current faulty Aware Button(again and again) with version 2.

Simply Phenomenal

By SquatchSlaya

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

These headphones are incredible. I can't believe how good the noise canceling is in these little things. I actually find myself using these more often than the QC25s simply because it's much easier to sleep with these on while on a plane, and because they're so much more portable. I highly recommend these headphones!

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I bought these almost two and half years back, still they work perfectly as new. While buying I was not sure whether these are worth or not, once I experienced they totally changed my opinion how I listen to music. In near future I can't imagine of any other brand that can challenge Bose. Thanks for delivering such an amazing product.

The mute button you've always wanted!

By Dk_123

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I am amazed at the level of noise reduction Bose has managed to achieve in these compact headphones. My coworkers go by - their mouths moving yet with no audible sound. The kitchen din, gone, hvac noise, erased, street noise, silenced. Now I can really focus in the office. When I switched these bad boys off I genuinely jumped. I had no idea how much background noise existed in my office, which is relatively quiet and reapectful. They are also super comfortable and secure. Earbuds have never fitted me well and generally fall out. Thanks to the nifty stayhear design they stay put without discomfort. The only nit I have is the cable run from the jack to the "box" is extremely short. I can see that putting a lot of stress on the cable ends over time. Time will tell... Also

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

Example: bought my second Bose N/C headphones, replacing my previous on-ear models. An awesome upgrade in every way. More comfortable for long wear times, better noise-cancelling (airplane rides are so much quieter) and improved music.

High quality noise canceling ear buds/microphone

By Chris

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

Cost equates to quality in this case. The ear buds are extremely comfortable and the sound quality is second to none. I travel a lot for work and am constantly on the phone. I have the ear buds in close to 9hrs a day 5 to 6 days a week. The noise canceling feature is great in flight or when background noise may interfere with a conversation. After 55+ days of co continuous use over the course of a year the ear buds are still performing like they're brand new.

Great sound quality, Improved my study habits

By jdmccallum

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

First, I want to start by saying these headphones were sent to me from Bose as part of their Test and Review Program. When I first heard about these headphones, I didn't honestly think that the noise cancellation technology would work very well. However, I was quickly proven wrong. When I first put these in my ears, I was totally impressed by the excellence of the noise cancellation quality. There was no hissing, and no outside sound interruption whatsoever. While testing the earbuds, my brother's radio was blasting music at full volume in the background, and I couldn't hear anything except for a little of the higher frequencies, and this was with no music playing through the earbuds. I'm a sophomore in high school, and let me tell you that these are perfect for using at school, such as during study halls, or between classes when there is a lot of background noise. I easily get distracted by other students talking, but using these headphones made a BIG difference. I noticed myself concentrating on work MUCH more. A great feature of these earbuds is the "Aware Mode". When someone talks I hit the "Aware Mode" button and it lets the sound through so I can hear what someone is saying without taking the buds out. That is a very handy feature. But... Even with such great product, there are a couple of quirks. One thing I noticed is that the location of the volume control and play/pause button is in the exact location to be pressed up against a table and turn up or down the music unintentionally. For taller people, I'm sure this wouldn't be an issue, but I am around 5'4" and it's happened to me a couple of times. Also, the battery pack it made this nice clingy material, which is not slippery and feels comfortable in your hand, but happens to attract dust and dog hair like a magnet. With that said, I am happy to say that there are definitely many, MANY more pros than cons with these earbuds. Overall these are excellent for studying, working, traveling, school, doing yard work, watching movies, etc. I look forward to using these daily. Good Job Bose!

SPEACHLESS

By lavoierich

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

Amazing :o) You turn the power on, wear it and it becomes perfectly quiet. Almost no noise. Example: I am working in an engineering departement. With the surronding noises at work, I have to put the volume of Windows Media Player at +/- 15 if the power of my Bose is off. When I turn it on, I can lower the volume at +/- 5. It means that I can listen the music for a much longer period of time without damage to my ears!

Best noise cancelling headphones available!

By Ryanjw

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

Pros: - Terrific noise cancellation. I also own Beats as well as the over-the-ear Bose Noise Cancelling headphones, and these do a noticeably better job blocking out noise. - Enhanced sound quality. I have owned the Bose over-the-ear model for many years, and nothing I've tired matches the deep base and crystal clear mids thru highs on those headphones. These are the first headphones I've used that offer that same high level of sound performance. My $400 pair of Beats headphones don't come even close to these. - The cable stays untangled. Somehow the cable stays untangled and straight when I pull them out to use, which I love. The cable is made out of a very nice rubberized material, and they are slightly thicker than normal, which must help them stay untangled somehow. - Built-in, rechargeable, long lasting battery. I've owned these headphones for a week and I've not charged them once so far. They also recharge via a standard USB cable, which is great. - Amazingly comfortable. These headphones are vastly more comfortable than any other noise cancelling headphones that I've tried. The only headphone that meet this level of comfort are the regular, non-cancelling, Bose earbuds. Bose clearly has perfected in ear comfort over the years and they simply brought that design over to these. - They still work when the battery is exhausted. When the battery is turned off, they still work like regular Bose headphones. This is really great if you happen to run out of battery power half way through your fight, which has happened to me in the past. With other models of noise cancelling headphones I've tried, once your battery runs out, they are totally useless. Cons: - The built-in battery adds a little bulk compared to regular earbuds. Apparently it's not technically possible to have noise cancelling headphones without a supplemental power source, so I don't think this is avoidable. The added bulk, which is roughly the size of a lighter, has not been a problem at all for me. But it certainly would be amazing if they could be fully powered by my iPhone or laptop. Summary: - The QuietComfort 20 noise cancelling headphones are the best noise cancelling headphones I've ever owned. In particular, I wasn't expecting the noise cancelling performance to be better than my Bose over-the-ear headphones, but they are in fact noticeably better when I compare them side to side. The sound quality is also top notch, as you would expect from Bose. When you add in the amazing comfort they offer, this is a no brainer purchase if you are considering a noise cancelling headphone.

Amazing Ambient Sound Reduction

By FSFOS

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I bought the new Bose QuietComfort 20 for Apple Products earphones for noise cancelling during long international flights. I researched the market for lots of products and read many reviews from differing sources about the BOSE earphones. Without a doubt these earphones have an amazing ability to reduce outside sounds. I turned them on for the first time and it went quiet - even with TV sound and conversation going on around me. These are the earphones for anyone interested in reducing surrounding sounds while still listening to music or watch a video. They sit comfortably in the ear and are not intrusive as many earphones and ear plugs can be. BOSE quality and sound are all there.

Perfect for Travel

By umeldonya

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I am a frequent flyer. I put these to the test of 170,000 miles last year and they passed on every one. 1) Great to keep your hands free while you're walking through the airport. You can handle phone calls and listen to music without needed to pull your phone out of your pocket. Side note, you also don't look as crazy talking into them as you do with a bluetooth headset. 2) Excellent noise cancelling. Once you're on the plane, it mutes the sound of unwanted noise from the engine hum or loud passengers (I'm talking about wailing kids mostly, parents I feel your pain). Keep in mind if you're listening on your phone or personal device you won't hear a thing the Pilot or flight attendants say to you. 3) Perfect for sleeping. Since they're so small and ridiculously comfortable, you can sleep with them in your ears and forget they're there. I have the Bose QC 15s and my biggest complaint was not being able to sleep with them. As soon as I turned my head or rolled over, the headphones would come off and the change in audio levels would wake me up. With the QC20s their small nature works so well when you're on the move, or trying to get some shut eye on a flight. Having said all that, I've been pleasantly surprised over the past year with my QC 20s. I use them almost exclusively every day, and have to say they have completely replaced my QC 15s.

Worth the price // Amazing earphones

By Danny Scott

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I've had my earphones since the day they came out in 2013 and they've been working perfectly. Awesome sounds and definitely will blow you away by the quality. Though the durability isn't quite as expected. This should be taken into account. Take care of your earphones and buy the 3 year protection plan, definitely worth it.

State of the art noise cancelling, great sound

By bradpdx

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I own an old set of Bose QC-2s that have served me well when traveling for years, and got these as an upgrade. The QC-20 is a horse of different color, providing dramatically better noise cancellation in a tiny package that is far easier to deal with on airplanes and in public spaces. The effectiveness of the technology cannot be understated - it is truly dramatic, with up to 45dB of cancellation (for non-engineers, that's a whole lot). Sound quality is terrific, and is enhanced by the lack of background noise. Some may think the price high, but quite simply less expensive products don't perform anywhere near as well, which tells me that the QC-20 is in fact an excellent value. Highly recommended.

Small Wonder

By Rockey

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones (for Samsung and Android Devices):

I am a proud owner of the QC15. Had to replace it twice in the past few years; it was just one of those things, hah. I wanted to try these to see if the awesomeness of QC15 could be fit into something so much smaller. Today is my first day with the QC20 and I have to admit that I'm seriously considering pawning my QC15 on Facebook already. I've had the SoundSport models; they were the first in-ear headphones that made sense to me and didn't have me banging my frustrated head. The best part of QC20 is the ability to use it without batteries. It's basically a better sounding version of SoundSport. I am rocking them at work with no noise-cancellation on and it still sounds spectacular. I have yet to test out the battery life and see how it compares to the QC15, but I feel optimistic!
