  • Bose® noise cancelling technology, shut out the world and focus on your music

  • 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. The four-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 "Perfect" Great Sound Quality, Perfect Noise Cancelling, who could ask for more. For when you are out and about or simply moving around the office or home these hit the sweet spot, a bit of advice don't drive with these on the noise cancelling switches off all sounds except for the Beautiful Sound you are playing. Best Earphones I have ever owned. "Perfect"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must if you are a frequent traveller I have had these now for a few years and they have been around the world many times. As a frequent traveller and having taken these on literally hundreds of flights I would not lave home without them. The noise cancelling is great and cuts out all the jet drone on a plane and shuts out even the crying babies. In some ways i find they work better than the QC35 headphones as they don't come off your ears if you fall asleep. The sound quality is what you expect from Bose as well and they deliver on all types of music. The only real downside is the the battery bit, it just gets in the way it is ok if you put your phone in your shirt pocket but if you stick it into your jeans you can guarantee if you pull your phone out of your pocket you will pull out the plug. Also for the best sound quality you have to have these turned on, as passive headphones the sound quality is definitely less. In summary I wouldn't be without mine on any journey where a plane or train is involved or for noisy city centre hotels but at there full price they are expensive but fortuneatly they are often on sale or available tax free at airports

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.
