Did I tell you I received some Bose QC-15 headphones for Christmas 2012? At the time, I considered returning them because they were kind of pricey. In addition I already had the Audio-Technica’s which are really strong headphones.
I’m glad I didn’t.
These headphones are ridiculously good. There is very little outside noise. The only drawback is, if your battery dies, there is no sound. Carry a pair of batteries as spares. A lot of people don’t like Bose. I don’t know what they’re listening to, but some of them prefer the Beats headphones. I’ve told you and continue telling you those Beats headphones suck out loud…and I’ve tried them more than a couple of times. Tinny, distant and noisy. Not good for a premium price.
Anyway, I have these headphones, a set of AM-5’s, some 401’s I bought from a friend, which are absolutely superb, and my wife has the Bose speaker she just loves.
Tonight on my flight from San Antonio to Dallas, there was a screaming kid sometimes sitting down next to me. The little savage was yelling, standing in his seat, pressing the light switch repeatedly while his father, sitting behind me kept telling him “stop” in the lamest way.
At 10,000 feet, I put my headphones on and the little bastard disappeared until we had to stow devices for landing.
By the way, isn’t that getting old? People have to be told….repeatedly…to turn their s**t off before landing. On a flight from Baltimore to Chicago, one idiot left her cellphone on the entire flight and texted from takeoff to landing.
Can’t you do without the damn thing for 15 minutes? It’s not like people actually like you that much. Smartphones have helped create a generation of weepy, needy young adults who would rather shoot you than talk. They have no discipline.
