Overview

In-ear. Noise cancelling. Better sound.

Shut out the world and lose yourself in your music—or let the world in. It’s your choice with the first in-ear noise cancelling headphones from Bose. The QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones let you enjoy better sound every day, everywhere you go. Turn on noise cancelling to reduce surrounding distractions and focus on your music. Or, at the touch of a button, activate Aware mode to hear what’s happening around you. Proprietary StayHear®+ tips provide a soft, secure fit. The inline microphone and remote let you switch easily to calls and control of certain functions. Choose either the QC®20 Apple device model or the QC20 Samsung and Android™ model to use with your respective device.

These headphones are designed for Samsung and Android devices. A version is also available for iPhone, iPad and iPod models.

  • Bose® noise cancelling technology, shut out the world and focus on your music
  • Aware mode to hear what’s around you at the press of a button
  • Deep, clear sound from the Active EQ and TriPort® technology
  • Soft, and secure for hours of listening from proprietary StayHear®+ ear tips

Lose yourself in your music

QC20 headphones let you experience music on the go as never before. You'll enjoy lifelike, digital sound quality that stands out from the noise around you—plus the freedom of an in-ear headphone. StayHear+ tips physically block some noise while our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology electronically reduces most of what's left. It's just you and your music, even in noisy environments.

Tune in to your environment

But there are moments when you may not want to be so cut off from your surroundings. Crossing a city street. Waiting for airline gate announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you're back in touch with the sounds around you—while your music keeps playing, and you still experience some noise cancellation.

Engaging sound

All this, plus Bose lifelike sound. Sound you wouldn't expect from in-ear headphones. Our TriPort® technology and Active EQ combine to give your music a depth and balance that keep your daily soundtrack fresh and alive. The subtle details shine through, too. So wherever you are, your music's front and center.

Advanced ear tip technology

And your music's even easier to enjoy when you're not fussing with your headphones. Proprietary StayHear+ tips create a soft, secure fit with no need to force them into your ears. The cone shape spreads contact evenly across the ear for maximum comfort, and forms a gentle seal that contributes to the headphones' full-spectrum noise reduction.

You're in control

Controls are all at your fingertips. Use the slider switch on the control module to turn noise cancelling on and off. The inline microphone/remote houses Aware mode and call answer/end buttons. The 4-button remote, provides volume and music control plus access to voice-recognition apps, like Siri or Google search.

Rechargeable battery

The lithium-ion battery (located inside the module) charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies your music still plays with performance equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones.

When not in use, simply store your headphones and cables in the included carrying case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Headphones I have the Android version of the QC20 and love them! The sound quality is spectacular and a treat to my audiophile hearing. I enjoy listening to my legacy recording and hearing sounds and instruments that I wasn't aware was there all these years. The earbuds are super comfortable and stay in place during my run or bike ride. I also use the QC20 as sound reduction when I mow the lawn. I can barely hear the lawnmower when I have music on. Buy these and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended to block out snoring I bought these back in December after Bose recalled their sleepbuds. After testing over $1000 on various anti snoring solutions, these turned out to be the best. I plug them into an old phone (airplane mode) running a white noise app and put them both in a fabric workout belt so they stay with me if I turn over. Between the ANC and low-volume white noise, I can't hear any snoring. The only environmental sounds that get through are one-off high-frequency sounds which ANC can't do much about. With 16 hours of battery life, they cover me for two nights. I have two bits of constructive feedback. 1) The mic picks up outside wind very easily on phone calls 2) I have read reviews about the aux cable ripping at the 90 degree bend. As such, I never let the ANC box free hang, which can make it awkward to use since I feel I must hold it at all times. Perhaps I'm being paranoid though.

FAQs

Can I use the headphones even if noise cancelling is off or if the battery is depleted?

Yes, QC®20 headphones are still able to play audio if the battery power is depleted and the unit is powered off. You will not be able to use noise cancelling or Aware mode, however, and Active EQ, which electronically provides more lifelike audio reproduction, is disabled. These technologies need power to operate.

What devices can I use with QC20 headphones?

QC20 headphones are specifically designed to work with select Apple or select Samsung and Android™ devices. An inline microphone and one-touch answer/end button allow for seamless switching between your calls and music. Some phones may require you to hold the answer/end button for a few seconds to perform these functions.

Can I use QC20 headphones in the rain or snow?

No, QuietComfort 20 headphones are not designed to be used in wet environments.
