So I was on a plane home and I looked around and literally saw about 4 or 5 people wearing Bose QuietComfort 2's. My friend's father was one of them and I asked to borrow them. I tried them on and they cancelled out maybe 1/3 of the plane's engine and another 1/3 was drowned out when music was played. Granted, it wasn't an ideal testing situation, but in the minute I had them on I was glad to be able to take them off and put in my E2c's which did a superior job of noise-cancellation and which (I thought), had better sound. Being the owner of just the Shure's and SR60's, I figured the Bose cans would sound at least a little better than what I was used to (you know, "you get what you pay for") but at that moment, the hours of reading I had done here paid off. Awesome.
