Cons

active noise canceling introduces additional noise into music - can often be heard

Not sure these to passive pass-through... so no power no music

BOSE is mostly marketing - better options are often available for less money

Spare parts like a simple detachable audio cable practically unavailable from Bose.

The Bose QuietComfort 15 is a pair of fourth-generation, over-the ear headphones released by Bose in August of 2009. It builds from the QuietComfort 2’s exterior design, but features completely re-engineered noise-canceling audio technology. This new advanced technology utilizes microphones both inside and outside each earcup to sense and then dramatically reduce unwanted noise. It also relies on better-quality cushioning material to further block noise, as well as keep the user comfortable. And its core is Bose’s proprietary signal processing and audio reproduction technology, allowing the QuietComfort 15 to outperform all of its predecessors in the delivery of well-balanced and detailed audio. Additional features include automatic active equalization for better performance, fold-flat earcups that rotate 90 degrees for easy storage, and an included battery for 35 hours of music-listening.

Yes, the newer Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b are a great pair of noise cancelling headphones. I would rank them right behind the Bose QuietComfort headphones. You can checkout more reviews at http://bestnoisecancellingheadphonesreviewed.com
