Bose QuietComfort 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Earbuds


When people think of noise-cancelling headphones, they normally think of two things: crying babies on airplanes and Bose headphones. But not everyone, including myself, wants to tote a full-size set of headphones everywhere they go. Cue in the QuietComfort 20i, in-ear noise cancelling earbuds available in a much more portable size, but just as effective and sound isolating as its ear-covering equivalents. These earbuds are pricey...very pricey...but when you need them, you'll likely be relieved you shelled out the extra dollars for their excellent noise-cancellation capability.
