I've got a pair of sennheiser 280 pro, i also have a pair of in-ear shure ones, the shures blocks out pretty much all noise but hurts the ears after a while..
I am surprised there is so much bose hate on here, they do seem a bit overpriced, however like I said, if they are good (noisecancelling wise) I don't mind spending a bit of cash on them.
To me actual sound quality is secondary.
still interested if there are any quietcomfort owners on here at all, I've tried googling to find an answer before even posting on here but couldn't find any solid information..
That's the thing for the most part this forum is all about sound quality first and getting our monies worth hence all the Bose and also Beats hate here. If your main priority in getting a headphone is how good it can block out noise then defiantly go with the Bose QC15 as It has really impressive noise cancellation in the lower frequency from 40hz-800hz that passive and even other NC won't block out as well or at all once you get to low in frequency in the case of passive headphones like the HD 280 which stops blocking at around 180hz. Not as impressive in the higher frequencies above 1000hz but still provides good isolation. Its bested by iem like the Etymotic which completely seal the ear canal and provide maximum noise isolation at all frequencies.
