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.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose for life I've had these almost since the day they were released. They've been on countless flights with me, including trans Atlantic and trans Pacific ones. I use them everyday. These are the best, ever! Unfortunately, after the most recent flight, the covering on the battery pack started to peel. So I called Bose. They said my warranty had expired. My heart sank for one quick second, but I was going to order another pair anyways, because that's how much I love these! But, guess what, Bose replaced them for me... FREE.OF.COST!! On top of quality products, it's customer service like that, that makes me a Bose fan, FOR LIFE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously impressed! I purchased these headphones after review of multiple products online through external review companies, and Bose came out on top for quality of noise cancellation. I was looking for a set that are light, small, and easy to travel with since I do a lot of traveling both domestic and international. Sleeping on planes is usually a requirement for me, so silence is imperative. Additionally, I work in a warehouse where there is constant noise, and was hoping they would help tamper some of the background. The portability of the item is what caused me to choose it over the bulkier, over-ear headphones offered by Bose and other companies. The product is incredibly easy to operate. I like the control buttons on the cord, which allow increase/decrease of volume, pausing, resuming play, and turning the noise cancellation on/off. I am seriously impressed!!! The headphones are comfortable in my small female ears, something that I struggle with in other earphones and ear plugs. The battery pack that works the magic is smaller and thinner than I expected, which is a nice bonus. The package also came with a sturdy, reinforced shell case to carry them in. The sound quality is clear and balanced. They're as good as any set of headphones I've owned before. What really stands out above the rest is the quality of noise cancellation. At work, I'm currently sitting in an office inside a cavernous warehouse, with air conditioners running, carts and forklift operators moving around, outside music playing, a portable heater running, and I'm typing on my keyboard. And all I can hear is my music, clear and plentiful in my ears. Bose, you do not disappoint. I can't wait to try these on my next flight!

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.
