Never Smiled So Much On A Flight! Bose Quiet Comforts!
I can honestly say that these Bose Headphones, Quiet Comfort 15’s, are the BEST birthday present ever!! I know that I have probably just shattered my Mom, but OMG, these things are awesome!!
My lovely wife and children bought these for me, 2 days before my birthday and the day before I headed to the States for a Conference. I actually got a little upset with them. $300 and it’s only my 45th B-Day. I told them I was going to return them!
What an Idiot! What the hell was I thinking?!
After boarding my flight, I plugged them into my iPad (No, not the iPad 2, rather the “classic”, the “original”, or “premiere edition”; yes I am sensitive!) and I am listening to a bunch of tunes my 15 year old daughter put on for me.
I don’t think I have ever smiled this much on a plane! Cold Play, Ray LaMontange, Santana, Billy Joel, Regina Spektor, Deep Blue Something…..I mean, you pick, holy shite, none have sounded better.
I take the headphones off to answer the attendants, and I am almost deafened by the noise on this flying tin can and the passengers on board. I feel like I am not even here with them. I am on my own little flight and in my own world!
I am not even cranking these babies and I still can’t hear the 2 chatter boxes beside me. 3 freaking hours, non stop, and they dont even know each other, they just met! These beauties have drowned them out to a light drone. If there was someone from Bose on this plane, I would have kissed them!!
I am not going to get into the techy talk. Ya, the bass is very clean and distortion is at a minimum. Separation is ridiculous and these have such a mellow sound and yet so defined. The highs, lows, vocals, strings…..whatever, these are fabulous. The fit around the ears is tight and yet so comfortable. I feel better with them on, rather than off!
They may not be cheap, but if you travel or just want to cut out the BS around you, these are really, really, nice!
Now I just have to hide them from the kids!
Ciao for now @kootenayborn
