Bose Quietcomfort 15 Review

Today I wanted to go over the Bose Quietcomfort 15, as far as noise cancelling these are leading in the field and have been the big boy’s for awhile now.  Depending on what you want you might want these or you might prefer something different.  I’ll go over the pros and cons of these headphones.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Bose for awhile but they hit a home run with some of their headphones, this is one and for noise cancelling I don’t think you will find better.

Bose Quietcomfort 15

Do you want more noise cancellation than audio quality? That’s something to think about.  If you aren’t an audiophile and can’t notice every little thing and want the best noise cancelling than go with these I would say.  If you’re an audiophile and want quality over a little less noise cancelling I would go with the Sennheiser PXC 450.

Both are great headphones and the differences are minimal but they’re still good to take into consideration if you are going to spend that money for quality headphones.


These Bose acoustic headphones have made a lot of improvements and this model is better than the others.  They cancel noise better, they sound better and they’re more comfortable.  I have been trying these headphones since the beginning and these gave me faith in Bose again.  The QC15’s are also integrated with some iphone technology if you have an iphone.  They make it easy to answer calls with these headphones. The battery life is also better and allow for rechargeable batteries for the active noise cancellation.

Bose Quietcomfort 15 Frequency Response

Unfortunately Bose doesn’t give out their frequency response like a lot of other manufactures but there have been different tests on these headphones by independent people.  The test are kind of all over the place, some say it performed well with lower tones and base and didn’t do as great with higher frequency’s.   It’s hard to say without an official test but we can take away from the overall reviews of the headphones from professionals and average customers.

Bose Quiet Comfort 15 Review Conclusion

If you want the best noise cancellation I would seriously consider these, Bose has put most of it’s effort into creating the best noise cancellation around.  If you don’t really notice the smaller details like audiophiles then these are perfect for you.  Don’t get me wrong that sound great and are great quality, it’s hard to notice any difference if you’re not trained to pick out the small things.    I would have to say these are my favorite headphones as far as pure noise cancellation.
