Answer:
Nope. The battery is for the noise canceling feature. But can't run them without the noise canceling feature on.

Answer:
No. I use them at the office because of the number of computers running near me, with noisy fans etc. I can hear other people perfectly well when they talk.

The headphones analyse the noise around them then generate anti-noise to cancel it out, but it's not perfect ( which is deliberate ), there's a delay in the analysis. Therefore something constant like a fan whirrin will be cancelled out almost perfectly, but a continually changing source like a human voice speaking will sound slightly different to normal, but be perfectly intelligible / clear because the headphones are only cancelling out what they heard a fraction of a second before that, so it never catches up. If they change their conversation from speech to a consistant hum then that'd be cancelled. Hope I'm making myself clear. see less

Answer:
Not as much as on-ear or in-ear headphones do. But you might feel a little pain around your ear after a few hours. I am a developer so i listen to music a lot while working. I usually take them off in a an hour or so for a while. That is the only drawback of this headphone. Otherwise, it is by far the best one i have ever had.

Answer:
Hi Tony. My first pair were pretty good. Most constant background noise was filtered out (traffic noise, engine noise in aircraft etc.). I could still hear people speaking although at a lower volume. When friends tried them, they were all quite impressed by the noise cancelling.

My second pair weren't as good as the first pair. That said, if you open the ear pieces (they are held together with small screws) you will see a small potentiometer (one in each ear piece) with an adjusting slot.
I fiddled with this and noticed it increased/decreased the noise cancelling. If you turn it too far to increase noise cancelling, movement of the headphones causes a clicking sound. see less

Answer:
Works very well for me. I wear an over-the-ear phone headset and I put my Bose on over the headset, can still hear my phone ring, pause my training or music audio and answer my call. Headset cushioned earphones are comfortable and seal around the ear.

Answer:
They seem to be price-fixed with no advantage anywhere in terms of cost. As to any other matter--service etc--I can't say as I have not needed such.

Answer:
Excellent for significantly reducing both jet and prop noise. With any audio input such as plane audio or your personal audio the plane engine noise is not noticeable.
