|Sennheiser PXC 450 vs Bose QC15
The verdict Sennheiser PXC 450 are fun to listen to. I noticed nuances I have never heard before in my music and an overall I just liked listening to them. I did not have this experience with the Bose. The Bose sound decent but the clarity & fun was missing and I just didn't enjoy listening to them. I would force myself to listen to the numerous song with each. I was board with the Bose and wanted to listen to the Sennheiser every time. The Sennheiser simply sound better. FYI: I was in a relatively quite environment when I did my tests (this is where I will be doing most of my listening). I will be returning the Bose (still in my 30 day trial period).

I am presently sitting on an American Airlines flight heading East and I have to say that I am VERY disappointed with the noise reduction feature of this product. I was hoping to get the same results as I do with the Bose headset given to you to view your videos on the flight. I actually compared the two a moment ago and the Bose knocks Sennheiser out of the park! Hands down!!
On a more pleasant note, if you're looking for a quality headset for music without too much base, this gives a GREAT quality sound and you will have many hours of enjoyment.
Unfortunately, noise reduction along with quality sound, heavy on the bass is my preference so I'm planning on exchanging these as soon as I land with the Bose Quiet Comfort 3. I also plan on suggesting to Bose to also add volume control and talk through options for their headsets.
I hope that this review helps you decide which product you'd like to go with.

|After owning the Bose headphones (stolen by baggage handlers of United) I decided to give these Sennheiser's a chance, I owned several of their other headphones over the years dating back to the models with the yellow foam pads (HP-44's?), and always thought that the sound quality was superb, and the lightweight open design was comfortable allowing for long strain-free listening times. The Bose didn't fit well, part of my ear was always touching the mic inside the ear cup, and this got painful after a while. Like you, I read the reviews here and took your advice. These are simply the best product of its kind not only for the noise canceling which I find superb, but the audio quality, and comfort are top notch. A little heavier than I was used to, and I always feel I might break them while twisting them flat for storage, but I have been using them quite a lot, without issue. I even had to share a hotel room during a business trip with a vicious snorer, and I slept with these babies on! A great product from a terrific company that has been doing this for decades, you won't be disappointed.|

|I bought the PXC 450 to replace a cheap pair of noise-cancellation headphones. I really enjoy using these headphones, especially when we travel. My husband understood my enthusiasm for the PXC 450 when he tried them. He ended buying a pair of PXC 450 for himself. :)
1. The PXC 450 is very comfortable to wear for several hours at a time. I also wear glasses.
2. The noise-cancellation abilities of these headphones blocks out crying kids and noisy airplane engines. Yay !! :)
3. The talk-through function is very handy when conversing.
1. The carrying case is bulky. Roughly about 7.5" x 9" x 1.5".

|I originally bought these headphones for airplane rides about 6 months ago. However, I found it didn't cancel out all the airplane noise as well as my JBuds J2 did. I noticed I had to turn my ipod volume up higher with the Sennheiser than with the JBuds. However, I still really like these headphones. While they may not be the best noise cancelling for airplanes they are awesome at cancelling out background noise such as tv or people talking. I listened to them at my boyfriend's parents house when his parents (who listen to the tv louder than my grandparents do) watched tv. I was amazed at how much of the noise it cancelled out!
My favorite thing about the earphones is how you can use them without the noise cancelling feature. Sometimes I want to be able to tell when other people are trying to talk to me. That was one of the main selling points in buying these headphones compared with other noise cancelling headphones.
As for the sound, I am very happy with it. I am not an audiophile by any means but I absolutely love listening to music and these headphones sound amazing to me.
My only complaint about the headphones is that they tend to make my ears hot. I guess that's how it is with a lot of noise cancelling headphones though since they have to completely surround the ear. When I was living in Hawaii it was more of a bother, but now that I'm back in Washington where it's not so hot I don't find it as annoying.
Overall, I highly recommend these earphones. I did a lot of research on noise cancelling headphones before I decided to buy these and I am still happy with my purchase. While they are expensive, but I think they are made well and if you take care of them they should last a while.
