Bose QC 15 - opinions and alternatives

Discussion in 'Hardware - PCs, Consoles, Gadgets' started by muscat_diver, Mar 23, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I would like some noise cancelling headphones to use in a busy noisy office and on flights. The main attributes I need are noise cancelling as opposed to excellent audio and I would also like to be able to carry just one pair of headphones when traveling so I want them to have a microphone and to work with Skype and Blackberry. I understand Bose QC15 rate well as noise cancelling but the supplied mic is advertised as Apple compatible nothing else. I would be grateful for advice from users of alternative headphones to Bose that meet the criteria above. I would also be grateful for advice whether the optional mic kit available for Bose works with Skype / Blackberry.

    Finally does anyone know if the Bose 'returns' are still sold to the public and the website?

    Many thanks
