Put your music front and center

Before you ever play a single song, the Bose QuietComfort® 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones put you in a relaxed state of mind.

Put your music front and center

Before you ever play a single song, the Bose QuietComfort® 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones put you in a relaxed state of mind. The moment you activate the powerful noise cancellation circuitry, background sound magically fades away. Then you're ready to press play and get truly lost in your music.

Not only does it make airline travel, commuting, or office work a pleasure, it also allows you to appreciate the fine details in your music that may get lost amid external noise with other headphones. Bose Noise Cancelling® headphones have long been huge hits with our customers — you'll also find them adorning the ears of lots of folks here at Crutchfield headquarters.

Crisp, powerful sound

Along with Bose's legendary noise cancellation, the QuietComfort® 25 headphones feature a streamlined look and excellent sound quality. Thanks to Bose® Active EQ and TriPort® technology, these headphones offer sound that's clear, balanced, and powerful, to inject new life into songs you've listened to countless times. It's a sound signature that makes these headphones excellent for long listening sessions — just what you need to pass the time on a long flight or train ride.

Take calls and take control with your iPhone®

Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones wtih included accessories

The QuietComfort 25 headphones (shown in Black) fold up for easy storage in the included carrying case.

The detachable cable's built-in remote lets you control music playback and volume with your iPhone, iPad®, or iPod®. There's also a built-in microphone for taking calls with your iPhone, so you can remain in touch even while you're putting the world on "mute." The remote and mic are also compatible with many other popular smartphone brands.

Dead battery? Keep listening with passive mode

The QuietComfort® 25's noise cancellation circuitry is powered by a single "AAA" battery. If your battery runs out and you forgot to toss a spare in the carrying case, the music doesn't have to stop. You can keep listening in passive mode without noise cancellation, so you're never stranded without your music.

Comfort that will keep you listening

Bose makes some of the most comfortable headphones we've ever used. The QuietComfort® 25 headphones continue that trend — they may even elicit a relaxed sigh when you slip them over your ears. The earcups are large enough to fit completely over your ears without ever feeling bulky. The luxuriously soft padding on the earcups and adjustable headband give them a custom-fit feel. They also fold up for easy storage in the included carrying case, making them an indispensible travel accessory for music and audio book lovers.

Product Research


Overview: The Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones feature exclusive Bose technologies to shut out the world around you to make your music sound better. These lightweight, around-the-ear headphones have soft ear cushions for a comfortable fit. The QC25s come with an attenuating airline adapter and a semi-hard carrying case.

In-Line Remote Control: The QC25 headphones include a single, detachable 5' audio cable with an in-line remote control and microphone. It is terminated with a slender, right-angled 3.5mm plug. The remote is "made for" iPhone (6, 6 Plus, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, 4, 3GS), iPad (Air, mini, mini with retina display, 3rd/4th generation, iPad 2, iPad), iPod touch (2nd through 5th generations), iPod classic, iPod nano (4th through 7th generations), and iPod shuffle (3rd and 4th generations). Controls include Volume Up/Down, Play/Pause, Skip Track, Previous Track, Fast Forward/Backward, Answer/End call, Ignore call, Switch to incoming call, and Voice Control. Functionality varies by model.

Note: The Bose QC25s are also available in a Samsung Galaxy and Android version.

Exclusive Bose Technologies: The Quiet Comfort 25s feature TriPort and Active EQ technology to deliver rich, lifelike sound. TriPort consists of small vents in each earcup that provide tonal balance, including deep, low-note reproduction. Active Equalization electronically tunes the headphones' frequency response to give you the best audio performance possible.

Acoustic and Active Noise Reduction: The Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones offer significant noise reduction to eliminate much of the outside noise, so you can concentrate on your music, movies, and videos. With soft earcups that seal out noise, and microphones inside and outside each earcup, the QC25s offer both acoustic and active noise reduction. A switch on the outside of the right earcup lets you turn the Active Noise Reduction on or off.

Battery Powered: The headphones' active noise cancellation is powered by a single "AAA" battery. You can use either alkaline (supplied) or optional Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) rechargeables. A fresh alkaline battery provides up to 35 hours of playback time, while a rechargeable Ni-MH battery has a battery life of about 28 hours. An indicator will flash when there is approximately 7 hours of battery life remaining (4 hours for Ni-MH). The headphones will continue to pass audio when the battery is depleted.

Fold-Flat Earcups: The QC25s feature "fold-flat" earcups rotate 90-degrees for easy storage and portability in the included slim carrying case.

Has anyone tried to use these while operating lawn equipment such as leaf blowers, yard vacs or lawn mowers?
[ wgmany  Dec 30, 2014 ]

No, not yet, but it does an excellent job blocking out the sound of my grandfather clock which is kinda loud.
[ James  Jan 03, 2015 ]
Thanks for answering
[ wgmany  Jan 03, 2015 ]
Goggles replied: I have used Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones in a crowded airport and on walks through the woods; they do cancel the background noise. I won't be able to test them while operating power equipment until Spring as the ground in Minneapolis is covered in snow.
[ Sheryl  Dec 31, 2014 ]
Can these headphones be used with Android phones?
[ Jennifer  Dec 15, 2014 ]
3 answers
Yes they work great with android phobes. The only thing that doesn't work is the ability to change the song or volume from the clicker on the headphones themselves, but the sound is great.
[ Ty  Dec 15, 2014 ]
Yes. I used these headphones with my LG Android phone. Although the remote on the headphones didn't work, it only works with iPhone and select Android devices.
[ Mike  Dec 15, 2014 ]
Yes it definitely can. I was recently on a trip and used these headphones together with my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S5). The volume controls and microphone featured on the connecting cable worked fine. I was able to take several calls and everything functioned correctly. From what I understand the skip track forward/backward functionality will not work unless you are connecting to an Apple product.
