Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones Review
When Terry and I decided to Travel The World House Sitting we sold everything! We hit the road with two small carry on sized suitcases and a backpack. We knew we needed to travel light. However, there were some “must need items” that she felt we had to have. We were about to embark on a life that consisted of some long flights on some noisy airplanes. She wanted some Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones and had read many reviews on them. However I decided to write my onw Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones Review.
I was on board until I saw the price
We were in Austin, Texas on our first house sit preparing to travel the world. She insisted we go to the Bose Outlet Store and buy some of these miracle headphones. Of course the Austin area has everything and we soon found ourselves in a Bose Outlet Store. In we walked and there right in the front of the store was a display case of different levels of headphones, all of them noise cancelling headphones. I almost choked when I saw the price! Who would pay this kind of price for headphones?
We were given a demonstration
We were quickly approached by a salesman offering his help. All I wanted to do was get out this “high priced store”! Anyway, he had us put on the headphones and then turned on a sound system in the store that very closely mimicked the sound of the inside of a passenger jet. Not that loud, but an irritating sound none the less. I had the headphones on and I could still hear the sound of the jet engines. He reached over, clicked a button on the side of the right ear piece and then suddenly, there was a wonderful feeling of peace. The irritating sound of the jet engines was gone. It was like magic. I could not believe it! Noise Cancelling Headphones were the way to go! But, not at this price!
Off we went to a “major electronics retailer” to comparison price
We found a store that had quite the selection of headphones. And when we approached, there were quite a few noise cancelling headphones at a much lower price than what we were looking at in the Bose store. Some of them even “name brands”. The manager of the department approached and offered us her help. We explained that we were about to embark on quite the journey and need some really good noise cancelling headphones. We complained at the price of the Bose brand and asked what she recommended among the headphones she had in stock that would match the quality of Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones at a much lower price. She laughed and said, “I have nothing here that comes close to the quality of the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones. They were the ones that developed the technology and are way ahead of everyone else.”
I still wasn’t sold on spending this much money
We were outside the store and my wife and I had a conversation. I did not want to spend the money. She finally said, “look, we know we need noise cancelling headphones. Why save money and buy cheap ones if they are not going to work”! Yes, you guessed it, we went back to the Bose store and bought some Bose Cancelling Headphones!
I haven’t even mentioned the sound quality
All we had in mind when we bought our headphones was the capability of their
noise cancelling. We didn’t even think about their sound quality with music. Soon after purchasing them, we jumped on a jet and flew to Thailand. With one stop in Dubai it took us twenty hours go get there. I have to say that the headphones really did their job. We were able to watch movies on their screen with no background noise. It was not until later that I took these same headphones and plugged them into my computer to listen to some music and received quite the surprise. The sound was incredible. You see, “Cheap Ass Clyde” had never used a decent pair of headphones before. I was in love with my headphones and was certainly glad my wife talked me into buying them!
We bought our headphones about a year ago
We purchased the Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise Cancelling Headphones. I was to cheap to buy the “wireless” Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise Cancelling Headphones. Now that I have mine, I think the better choice would have been to get the wireless ones. I hope you enjoyed this Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones Review
