In-ear. Noise Cancelling. Better sound.
Consider them your go-to headphones, wherever you go. The first in-ear noise cancelling headphones from Bose give you more control over how you listen than ever before, in all kinds of environments. Block the outside world with full-on noise reduction. Or, choose Aware mode and let some of it in—all while keeping your headphones on and your music alive with Bose sound. Wherever your day takes you, QC®20i headphones keep you connected. To the beat of your music, and the pulse of what's around you.
QC20i headphones: your ideal tablet companion.
Lose yourself in your music. Or not so much.
With QC20i headphones, you can enjoy music on the go as never before, with an unprecedented combination of superb sound, advanced noise reduction and in-ear convenience. StayHear+ tips physically block some noise while our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology electronically reduces most of what's left. It's just you and your music, even in noisy environments.
But there are moments when you may not want to be so cut off from your surroundings. Crossing a city street. Waiting for airline gate announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you're back in touch with the sounds around you—while your music keeps playing and you still experience some noise reduction.
All this, plus Bose lifelike sound. Sound you wouldn't expect from in-ear headphones. Our TriPort technology and Active EQ combine to give your music a depth and balance that keep your daily soundtrack fresh and alive. The subtle details shine through, too. So wherever you are, your music's front and center.
Aware mode lets you hear sounds around you while keeping your headphones on.
And your music's even easier to enjoy when you're not fussing with your headphones. Proprietary StayHear+ tips create a soft, secure fit with no need to force them into your ears. The mushroom shape spreads contact evenly across the ear for maximum comfort, and forms a gentle seal that contributes to the headphones' full-spectrum noise reduction.
You're in control
Controls are all at your fingertips. Use the slider switch on the control module to turn noise cancelling on and off. The 4-button inline remote, customized for iPhone, iPad and iPod models, houses Aware mode and volume buttons. In addition, the call answer/end button also enables music/video functions and voice commands.
The built-in lithium-ion battery (located inside the module) charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies your music still plays with performance equal to that of our regular in-ear headphones.
Your go-to headphones, wherever you go.
The headphones and cables fit nicely into the carrying case when not in use.
