I had the QC3 and returned it for the QC15's.  I much preferred the QC15's design over the QC3's, but it's a matter of personal preference.  You feel the QC3's more because it rests on your ear, whereas the QC15's aren't felt as much and don't apply as much pressure to your ears over time.

The QC15's actually block out more noise because they both have the same active noise cancellation, but the QC15's have more passive noise cancellation due to the around-the-ear design.
The other difference is that the QC3's have a rechargeable battery with a life of about 20 hours and the QC15's use a single AAA battery with about a 40 hour battery life.
Try it and find out, I find that I sleep better with them on.  There's a 30 day return policy (90 days with Starwood/Chase Sapphire Preferred)

its a lot of money, and this money back ain't going work with my location.

Decent reviews, but I doubt they're anything to write home about with the original price being $14.99.

Bose noise reduction etc
« Reply #19 on: January 29, 2011, 03:52:54 PM »
Hi,

Did anyone notice a promo or so for those Bose headphones (the bigger ones, "15").

It would be nice if they have a decent warranty, as I never spent this much on a headset.

In an airport, I could finally test it, and must say its wow !

Not so much the sound quality, but rather its silence.

Thanks

Ps: just a good price (or extra warranty) might also be good.

Pps: if anyone knows if there is a new one that is supposed to come out, I'd like to know, as they are a bit thick, if I want to lie on my side.

SquareTrade  will probably warranty this within 90 days of purchase.

90 days?

Don't you get a year to start off, when you buy it?

You have 90 days to purchase the warranty, IIRC the warranty lasts three years from original purchase date of the item.

AMEX will give you an extra year warranty, so 2 years for free.
QC15's are worth every last cent if you fly.  Amazing headphones. 
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Fly or use the subway. (Not driving !)

in CLT, they drove me nuts in a shop that I must buy the sehnheiser one, but when I saw the price tag of $499, it just became easier to shake them off me.

Still I wouldn't mind if they were flatter.

The qc3 is no comparison to qc15, I tried them both.

So they'd be easier to pack/store?

Yes, but more importantly, I could lie on my side.

No can do.  You can sleep with QC15's (and oh yes, you will sleep with them!) on your face or on your neck only.
