The Bose QC15 are fairly compact, over-ear, noise cancelling headphones. Noise cancelling filters low-pitched noise frequencies very well, but require a AAA battery to function.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good noise cancelling
These headphones are great for long flights. The active noise cancelling filters out low-pitched ambient sound very well, so jet engine sounds won't be much of an issue.
Pro Detachable cables
The cables can be removed for storage. If they ever break, they can easily be replaced.
Pro Noise canceling has long battery life
You'll get long listening sessions, even with noise cancelling on. These can last up to 35 hours of playback off a full battery.

Con No internal battery
The active noise canceling technology requires one AAA battery which must be replaced about every 35 hours.
Con Music can't be played without active noise canceling
In order to hear music, noise canceling must be turned on.
