QC-3 vs. QC-2 (side by side comparison) I have used the Bose QuietComfort QC-2 headphones for about a year, and have traveled to Asia over 5 times with them, and domestic travel as well. About 120 hours of air time. Never took them off. Vastly reduces my jetlag. A pleasure to own and use.On an impulse buy, I bought the QC-3’s after a demo at the local Bose store. 30-day return policy. Compared them side-by-side… both on the airplane, home, with and without sound.My impressions (your mileage may vary :-)Noise Cancellation:The QC-3 has impressive noise cancellation, I think it’s incrementally better than the QC-2.

Now all I had to do was plug it in, and encounter pure bliss.The headphones were really comfortable to “put on” – they fit on top of the ears rather than “around the ears” like the previous model. They were very light and non-intrusive. Lying sideways on a pillow didn’t pose much of a…
