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 certain functions. Choose either the QC®20 Apple device model or the QC®20 Samsung and Android™ model to use with your respective device.

These headphones are designed for Samsung and Android devices.

  • 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

QC®20 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 is your focus.

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.

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 Noise? What noise! I bought these earphones a week ago and I can't believe how much better I feel physically and emotionally. I have sensory processing disorder, which means every day noises can feel like I'm sitting under an airplane all day long. With these earphones all of that extraneous noise is virtually gone. I can't hear anything but the faintest far away voices, other than all the sounds from the music I play. I am also very pleased with the earpieces. They fit snugly, don't fall out no matter how much I move my head, and can be worn for long periods of time with no pain whatsoever. I read that some people are annoyed with the battery, feeling that it was cumbersome to carry around, but it hasn't been an issue for me as it fits easily beside my phone in pockets and I just tuck it beside my phone if I'm carrying it in my hand. The texture of the battery case is something else, very smooth! I am very happy with my purchase and I highly recommend them. They are a fraction less effective than the headphones but only a fraction, nothing significant at all. I originally bought the headphones but felt that they were too bulky and hot for my preference, but I don't feel like that at all with the earphones. They're very functional and practical for every day use. I can't wait to use them on my next plane trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought them in the airport before 10h flight! I got these yesterday afternoon while waiting to catch my trans Atlantic flight. Have always wanted to get a pair of noise canceling headphones buthe reviews across the Internet really point to bose being your best bet so it took me ages before actually forking out the cash. I went for the QC20 for the size and simplicity. I gotta say I was not disappointed. Tried them on first in a busy bar... silence. Tried them on again in the plane... silence. Tried them on again in a VERY busy airport terminal... silence. Really happy with the QC20 so far. Slept the whole second flight with them on, no music or show playing, just to kill the main drone of the plane. It's like stepping into a separate bubble, away from all the nonsense around you. So far so good. Really pleased.

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 QC®20 headphones?

QC®20 headphones are specifically designed to work with selected Apple® or selected 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 QC®20 headphones in the rain or snow?

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