I bet they cancel out noise really well, but I doubt they sound as well as other headphones that cost the same. I would love a set of those for a plane.

What other noise canceling headphones are there?

lol...QC2 might be good for travel. I would never buy a pair but for people that don't want to research a truely good pair of headphones or HT for that matter, Bose will give you a good enough sounding setup and take all of your money.

Price/Performance with Bose is terrible...always has been.

When I first heard a set of QC2 headphones I was completely blown away. Coming form the Logitech 350 USB headset I should have been blown away. Before I learned about this club and head-fi.org I was waiting for an opportunity to drop $300.00 on a set myself.

I always knew that Bose was bad but I never knew any alternative. High quality cans are not usually advertised to the mainstream and therefore Bose gets all the individuals that are willing to pay top dollar for what they feel is "top quality sound." Unfortunately that is not the case.

Yes, you will enjoy the build and sound quality that Bose offers. Just know that there is a whole world of actual high quality headphones, amps, cables, DAC's, CD players, portable players, portable amps etc out there. Run over to www.head-fi.org and check it out.

If you are willing to spend $300 on QC2 you owe it to yourself to check out head-fi.

GL and try to keep your wallet in your pocket.

a pair of closed cans like DT770's will isolate almost as much and sound vastly superior, especially for games

I have gone through several sets of "noise cancelling" headphones. They sound good but not great. When you take them off at 35,000' and you hear how loud it actually is inside a plane it will amaze you, crazy loud.

If I had to do it again, I would buy Shure earbuds. People seem to be happy with the performance they see out of them, and they don't have that huge case to add to my luggage when I travel.
