Bose QC 20i earphones. Anyone using?


Recommended Posts

These are remarkable little earphones. Just tried them out in a Bose shop, and though they had potential for live use (me a keyboard player). The noise cancelling is pretty clever.


Anyone tried these live for monitoring?

Haven't tried them, but especially for the price, I think you could likely do much better for a live application for the following reasons:

1) The cable routing would get in the way for live performance. Pro IEMs have the cable going around the ear and behind the head.

2) At the SPLs of a stage environment, I doubt that noise cancelling would be effective - you need a good seal.

3) I wouldn't expect the cables and additional electronics to hold up in a live performance environment night after night. Pro IEMs have replaceable cables.
