I visited the Chicago Bose store and took a listen to their Triport headphones. I found out that these use the exact same drivers as the Bose QuietComfort headphones. It's the exact same model except without the noise reduction circuitry. To my ears they sounded very clear on top with some solid bass. They reminded me of Audio Technica headphones in the sense that they are more cold sounding than warm. They are also very light and seem like they could break very easily. I would say that they are made more for lighter music and not really heavy Rock. They just don't have the slam for that. For $150 I think the Sony MDR-V6 is a much better headphone. The QuietComfort is way overpriced for $300 since they just add the noise reduction circuitry for another $150.
