Hi, thank you for your question.

The QuietComfort 15 headphones are certainly compatible with the 7th generation iPod Nano.

Question

Use of QC 15 with iPhone and also a Sony HDTV

The product blurb on the Best Buy website says: "Additional cable with inline remote and microphone for convenient control of select Apple® products." Does this mean there are two cables with the QC 15, one for Apple and one for other devices? Would the "other" be better to use with a Sony television through its audio out jack?

Thank you for your question!
Yes, you do receive two different cables with the purchase of a QC15; one for use with Apple products, and one for all other types of audio products. You can use either cable with a Sony TV’s headphone output. If you do utilize the Apple cable it would work just like the non-Apple cable, but none of the functions of the “inline remote” or microphone would have any effect.

The QC15 does come with two audio cables. One works great with the iPhone/iPad/iPod. The other has no inline remote and works great with everything else. I do not believe either would be wrong to use with the Sony TV, but just simply that the inline remote in specifically for use with Apple products and would probably not be able to change the volume on your Sony TV.

Hope this helps!

Question

What's the difference between the QC15 and QC3 (aside from over-ear/on-ear)?

1. Okay, so the QC3 is ON-ear, while the QC15 is OVER-ear, right?
2. And included with the QC3 is a rechargeable AAA battery, yea?

The QC3 is $349 and the QC15 is $299.

What other differences are there to justify the price gap?

Sound quality?
Noise cancellation? (a regard in which I would assume the OVER-ear QC15 would outstrip the QC3)
Comfort? (again, expected the over-ear headphones to be better)

Difference- The QC-15's are claimed to be the best by Bose. I personally think that the QC15's are more comfortable for long term use. (My first choice- but I also had a recent quality issue with the QC15 that Bose didn't even respond to, so i'm a bit leary of them now).

Great question! While there are differences in fit, both headphones offer premium comfort as well as outstanding sound quality. The QuietComfort 3 headphones are a smaller, on-ear version and offer a rechargeable lithium ion battery and charging kit. The QC15 headphones fit around the ears and have a noticeable improvement in noise reduction while providing equal audio performance to the QC3.

Question

Difference between quitecomfort 2 and quitecomfort 15 audio cable?

What is the difference between the audio cable for quitecomfort 2 and quitecomfort 15? The cable connecting the end of the 3.5 mm jack on my quitecomfort 15 broke and the guy at the Bose replacement store gave me a cable that was marked for quitecomfort 2. The audio quality has significantly reduced when I use the qc2 audio cable for my qc15. What should I do to regain the original audio quality?

There should be no functional or sound quality differences between the QC15 and QC2 audio cables. It may be possible that you received a cable that is not working properly. To order the proper replacement cable for the QC15 headphones, please contact our support team. They can be reached at 1-800-380-4831. Thanks!

Unfortunately, I do not believe that is a service Best Buy offers. They have their Geek Squad Protection (GSP) plan for if the headphones ever go bad, but I do not believe they trade-in the headphones otherwise.

Question

QC 15 headphones and my Samsung TV

When I use my QC headphones with my Samsung TV I can hear things, but cannot control the volume. Lo is too low, Hi is too loud. Would a small amplifier help?

These headphones require a good battery to operate due to the Noise Cancellation processor and external microphones. Check to see if your battery is low, that could resolve your issue. Also, verify that your headphone jack is capable of supporting a 3-Ring 3.5mm plugin. Most headphones have 2 rings on the 3.5mm tip, for stereo connections. This pair has 3 rings due to the volume/mic command buttons, so it does not fully work with some pairs of speakers. I.E., when I plug these headphones into my laptop, things sound great, but when I plug them into my Klipsch speakers, there isn't a solid connection and things tend to sound odd. (Vocals might be missing, Hi's/Low's might be tin-can sounding or hollow)

An amplifier will not solve this problem for you. Connecting a volume attenuator between the TV and the headset will allow you to adjust the volume to your desired level. Our technical support team has this accessory available for purchase. They can be reached at 1-800-380-4831. Thanks!

They do not block out sharp noises completely, but for ambient constant noise they block 90% and 100% if you have music on as well. The do not block MHZ as they are only for frequencies detectable by the human ear.

Thank you for the question.

We do not publish specifications regarding the specific frequency ranges that are affected by the noise cancellation technology of our QuietComfort headphones. We can advise you that they are designed to be most effective on lower “droning” type sounds such as an airplane engine or ambient noise within a room.

Frequency of headphones is almost impossible to measure accurately and specs mean very little. A response to 26KHz is beyond the range of human hearing. It might please a bat or a dog. No musical instrument can produce anywhere near 26K even with overtones. All digital music players have low pass filters that cut off above 20Khz for anti-aliasing. Bose probably has difficulty measuring frequency response due to their active noise cancellation. This can color the sound. Use passive noise reduction in ear phones - you'll get better sound. Remember active noise reduction must feed the ambient noise back into the phone to achieve noise cancellation. This subjects your ears to higher sound levels than you might think even though you're fooled in to thinking the noise is reduced.

Thank you for your question. Certain specifications, such as frequency response are not published by Bose. We feel that such specifications do not always show how a product will sound and perform. We recommend listening in person and comparing them with other headphones to judge how they sound. This can help to determine if it’s the right product for you. We hope this helps!
