Good: Nice case...and yes nice sound but....
Bad: padded ear covers
Comment: Aah, Bose. Pricey but quality. Right? Wrong! If the padded ear covers are made of the same material as the QC2's you will soon have the appearance of having walked through a soot storm as the covers peels and flake off. After only 2 years of sporadic use(only while flying) mine are disintegrating. When I went to the Bose store to compalin I was told that "It happens" and that I could have them replaced for 25 Quid but that they would probably do the same again. Ridiculous to think I should be spending a premium dollar for headphones and then spend an additional fee every 2 years to maintain them. Othe headsets I have for my home sound system have lasted years without this proble. But it appears Bose no longer cares about after sales service like in the past. My next headphones will be anything but Bose!
Good: The look on peoples face in the tube
Bad: Price , compatible with some mp3 players
Comment: my father bought these for me with the ipod vid costing a total of £500. The noise cancelling is perfect. If you are looking for sound quality/noise cancelling and HYPE/STYLE get these.
If you take out hype/style then go for some other brand which is cheap and sounds almost the same, like shure in ears.
Also another drawback is that it requires a minimum amount of output to perform at its best. if you plug it with ipod nano, its ok,but with ipod vid,its great bcoz of the output of the players.
