The Bose QuietComfort 20 earbuds are my favorite noise cancelling headphones/earbuds. They do a great job while allowing me to still go to sleep on my side (try that with headphones!). While normally priced at $249, you can get them directly from Bose at a great price of $149 for factory refurbished versions.
Great Deal – Bose QuietComfort 20 Earbuds for $149

These are sold direct from Bose and are factory refurbished. There are some companies that I feel completely comfortable purchasing refurbished products from due to their quality control and how they stand behind their products – Bose is one of those companies.
Some people are afraid of refurbished items but I have never had anything but excellent success with both Bose products and their customer support and would and have bought Bose refurbished devices without a second thought.
You can choose either the ones for iOS or Samsung. The only difference is how the volume/play controls work for each phone. They are available only in black (which I prefer over the white anyway – and the black are the ones I own).

The Bose QuietComfort 20
These are exceptionally portable and easy to throw in your carry-on, rather than carrying a larger case for over-the-ear headphones. The battery life is great on them also. Finally, they will work as earphones even when the noise cancelling function is not enabled (some of the Bose headphones do not allow that).
I have used them for a while and they really are the best for what they offer. I have tried Bose’s noise cancelling headphones but I do not like them because it is not so easy for me to sleep on airplanes with them on. With these QC20s, I have no problem with that.
These are normally $249 (since the introduction of the wireless QC30s) but you can get them right now from Bose for only $149
Do you have the Bose QuietComfort 20 headphones? How do you like them?
