Why We Like It

A solid pair of headphones are a must-have for any international travel. The hours spent waiting in terminals, sitting on planes, or even just relaxing after a day of exploring, zoning out to your favorite music helps the time to pass a little quicker. Bose has long been a pioneer in noise cancellation technology and the QC30 are no different. The Bose App allows you to control everything, even the level of noise cancellation you prefer. Bluetooth lets you put them around your neck and forget they're there, no more annoying cord to work around. Plus, they sound amazing and take up almost no space. The only qualm I have is that the neckband is slightly too rigid.
