Bose QuietComfort 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

By Michael Luciano

We have all been there. That time when you are listening to your favorite song at such a high decibel that you start to get the "look" from passersby. Some of us only do that for the sake of being able to hear it within areas where it can be nearly impossible to enjoy our music. This is where the noise cancelation headphones come in, only this time, they are a bit smaller.

Bose has introduced a much more condensed version of their top of the line, noise canceling headphone, now in the form of ear buds. The new Bose QuietComfort 20i has got many features that not a lot of people would expect from noise cancelation headphones, especially not in ear bud form. Featuring a rechargeable battery for the noise canceling feature eliminates all need for batteries. This alone takes away a common expense for most headphones of this type. It also allows for ambient noise to peak through when you need it to, by the means of an "Aware" mode. Always good for when you are walking through a bustling city.

While all of these features are good, there is always a downside to something that seem to good to be true. With $299 being the cheapest price for these beauties, it's not likely to see an average consumer shell out this amount of money for headphones, but it is definitely a top contender, especially seeing as it's design is suited for more practical use than most headphones. Still, these are going to need a bit of a price adjustment before I decide to pick up my pair.
