Bose Quitecomfort 20 Headphones

We don't need to convince you of the merits of a good pair of noise-canceling headphones. But, most of them have their drawbacks — namely, bulky design and a sometimes-undesirable isolation from your surroundings. The Bose QuietComfort 20 Noise Canceling Headphones fit inside your ear, taking up nearly no space at all, and an aware mode lets you tune into the world around you while still listening to music. The noise-canceling tech rivals most over-ear headphones, while the sound is everything you expect from Bose. A combination mic and remote in the cord lets you control your device or make a call.
