Bose QC20i Noise Cancelling Earphones

The Bose QC20i Noise Cancelling earphones was something I wanted for a while. Mainly for those flights that I am taking a lot recently to India. So why this earphone and not the excellent Bose QuietComfort 25 Headphones ? Actually after all these years, I really don’t like headphones. Find them too heavy (not matter how well designed) and too tight on me. Not to mention, don’t like to wear them walking around. Personal preference. What’s yours ? :)

Amazon ran a Father’s Day campaign recently and took USD50 off the listed price of USD299 which brings this earphone down to USD249. Cheaper (much cheaper) than a local pair.

So hooted it ! :) Here’s unboxing photos:

A nice bag. By the way, some people said they never see 3 StayHear+ tips as advertised. Two of them (Large and Small) are inside this bag.

The control module which is the key unit (and rechargeable via mini USB cable):

I know a lot of people complain about the length of the wire between the control module (that’s the flat piece that controls the noise cancelling feature). I agree…. your iPhone and the control module will probably have to live side by side with each other…. see how ridiculously short.
