I recently purchased the Bose QC 15 from Crutchfield for use on flights. I was disappointed yesterday when the airplane noise reduction was not, as advertised: "When you fly with QC15 headphones, engine roar fades to a whisper [ad on Amazon]" but reduced to a loud fan. I had to turn the volume up on the music to hear the music clearly. I don't deny that were was noise reduction but not as much as expected, nor as quiet as I remember on the demo at a Bose store.
I guess I am wondering if my expectations were too high and the glowing testimonials on Crutchfield's website deceptive? Thanks for any insight?
ps. I understand how noise cancelling works so was not expecting noise reduction of, for example, voices, baby crying, etc.
I hate that no one has responded in all this time. While I have not used them on an airplane, I can say that in our demo room we have played a recording of a jet engine at extremely loud levels. I thought they were similar levels to what I heard from when I flew in a twin engine cessna type plane.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
