Pros: Incredible Sound, comfort
Cons: Noise Cancelling is a little better with Bose
For $199 or below, I couldn't find a better headphone out there. Having the batteries in the headphones allow it to sound great with just my phone. I got some higher end headphones, but I had to use an amp to get the sound out of them. First, I went 4 1/2 starts, then I changed it to 5 because if I have my music going at a medium volume, I don't hear anything at an airport or loud restaurant. Again, the canceling isn't as good as the Bose Q15's and I haven't heard the 20's yet. Also, I had the Bluetooth version of this headphone and wish I would have kept it because no wires are great even though I lost some sound quality. But, I needed the $200 at the time. Hope this helps!
